Sad to see that this group hasn't had any activity since April of 2009. Is there anyone out there?

Just when you think you've tried 'em all ... just sampled 5, yes FIVE samples of new microbrews yesterday from the Pacific Northwest. Is it the Cascade hops or just the passion for beer and beer culture out West that makes it so good - and neverending. Cheers!

A TOAST TO 2009 WITH THE PATRON SAINT OF BEER!

In much earlier times, beer was not something people drank when they wanted to get a "buzz" while watching a ball game. No, Europeans and others made beer because it was a way to make sure the water was safe to drink.

King Gambrinus, known as "the patron saint of beer," has long been a universal symbol of beer and brewing. Particularly during the late nineteenth century, the image of Gambrinus was used by countless brewers to promote their products and remind consumers of the rich heritage of beer-making. Many breweries were even adorned with life-size statues of the King.

King Gambrinus is a legendary king of Flanders. We are accustomed to seeing him represented in the habit of a knight of the middle-ages, with the occasional addition of a crown. Popular imagination, it seems, attached such great importance to beer, that in according the honor of its invention, it could not be satisfied with anything less than a king."

So, A TOAST TO 2009 WITH THE PATRON SAINT OF BEER!

I wanted to personally invite all the members of the Beer Lovers group to join our discussions in regards to cheeses and their combination with beer at theCheese Group on FohBoh. Every week we introduce a new cheese and invite you to find it in your area, buy it, try it and then discuss it with us. This is a great way to create a knowledge base for all to use when pairing a beer with a cheese to get the full effects of a great pairing

Beer is ok to love, I have realized in the last year. The "I drank to much beer last night" is not as bad as it sounds. So rember on your next night off work do something you love BEER!

Ran into "The American Beer Drinking Club" Current Beer news and I think they said around 3,100 members (so far). Might find some good articles for the group. American Beer Drinking Club

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?

TED: David Sengeh: The sore problem of prosthetic limbs - David Sengeh (2014)

What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.
