Ways to celebrate beer lover’s day responsibly in El Paso:

"*Drink some beer with friends

Drive to your local beer-selling grocery store and pick up a nice, refreshing 12-pack. Invite your friends and family members to share some brewskies and good times!

Go on a bar crawl

If you've never been on a bar crawl, National Beer Lover's Day is a perfect time to check one out. It's a simple idea. Just pick out your favorite watering holes, and drink a beer in each. You might be a "regular" where everybody knows your name, or you might encounter a brand-new bar, decorated with ferns and full of many attractive strangers. You never know, and after a few beers, you won't care.

Tour a brewery and sample some beer

Go online and search for a brewery near you. Do you like craft beer, ale, or lagers? Are you passionate about foreign exports or home-grown beer? You’ll learn about hops and grains, and you'll get to sample different kinds of beer."

A brief history of beer.

Beer is among a few of the oldest drinks ever produced by humans. While water is a necessity for life. Beer was produced for nutrition, refreshment, and fun. All in moderation, of course. Thought to have originated in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, the earliest written history of beer quickly spread across the world and took on different tastes, brewing process, and became symbolic in its own unique way as a part of every culture.

Beer in America went through its own changes before, during and after prohibition, which ended in 1933. Beer began to be mass-produced until it became the beer we know today — what’s advertised the most anyway, some consider to be a watered-down version of what beer was meant to be.

When beer enthusiasts began brewing their own beer at home back in the 1960s, it was the beginning of a beer revolution. The beginning of the rise of craft beer in America. Craft beer for many is a return to brewing beer the way it was meant to be. It also means innovation, through brewing processes and the complexity of combining new flavors, and aromas to create something unique.

Think I’ve had one too many, going on about beer like this? There are plenty of enthusiasts out there. The American Brewing History Initiative is an ongoing exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington, DC. In 2020, there were a total of 8,764 craft breweries in the United States, based on the latest data from the Brewer's Association.

Have you tried any of the breweries mentioned above? Which one is your favorite? Did I leave your favorite off the list?
