Stan over at Appellation Beer has come up with a nifty new idea: a beer blogging day.
It seems that beer bloggers around the world should have something similar. So let’s start one, an event that will occur on the first Friday of every month. It doesn’t have to have a name (yet) or a logo (like wine), just participants who want to have a little fun and don’t mind learning a little along the way.
Appellation Beer will host the first tasting March 2 (giving us time to get out the word), and the theme will be “Not your father’s Irish stout.”
Drop Stan a line if you might want to participate. (I will be.) How it’ll work is you’ll pour yourself a stout (for this first month) and write about it. Send Stan (or whoever is "hosting" that month) the URL to your post and it’ll be compiled with pointers on the "host" blog.
Sounds basic, but it’s a neat way to build a community and start an online meme. Should we call this "Beer Blogging Friday"?
