Celebrate National Beer Day With Great Springtime Beers

Fun fact: I took a short walk today, and came back to the office drenched in sweat. In any other part of the country, that would probably signify the dog days of summer, but in Austin, it just means that Spring has officially sprung.

Fortunately, today is National Beer Day, which means we can cheers the warmer weather with a cold one. Of course, we can do that any day of the year, but it tastes a little more special today. The holiday began back in 1933 as a celebration of the Cullen-Harrison Act, which legalized the sale of beer. 

A pair of beers I plan to enjoy include Guinness's Blonde American Lager, which claims to be the most interesting blonde you'll meet all summer (a claim that will be true for roughly 78% of readers), and Thump Keg Brewing Co.'s Agave Amber Ale. It's the second debut beer from Thump Keg, along with the Rye IPA, and the agave and lemon grass flavor notes balance the flavor between malt and hops to create a crisp, refreshing delight. Give 'em a try, and enjoy this nice weather!
