Session # 84


As befits a blog with the moniker of Literature & Libation, the Session this month has either a lit bent or is bent because of the author being lit.  Either way, I had a hard time coming up with something so please forgive any weirdness in interpreting the assignment.

“We, as beer bloggers, tend to get caught up in this beer appreciation thing, forever chasing an invisible dragon of taste, doing our best to catalog our experiences on the page or in a database. We get obsessed with the idea of quantifying our experience – either so we can remember specifics ad infinitum or use the data as a point of comparison for other beers – and often forget that beer is just as much art and entertainment as it is critic-worthy foodstuff.

So for my turn hosting The Session, I ask all of you to review a beer. Any beer. Of your choosing even! There’s a catch though, just one eentsy, tiny rule that you have to adhere to: you cannot review the beer. 

I know it sounds like the yeast finally got to my brain, but hear me out: I mean that you can’t write about SRM color, or mouthfeel, or head retention. Absolutely no discussion of malt backbones or hop profiles allowed. Lacing and aroma descriptions are right out. Don’t even think about rating the beer out of ten possible points.

But, to balance that, you can literally do anything else you want. I mean it. Go beernuts. Uncap your muse and let the beer guide your creativity.”

Occlude no envelope. Ordinary fall. Migraine yes. Frequent available verses of random ideas times eleven. Banish ethereal even remotely sir.  Isotope string. Lord ask genteel underlings nothing if they accept sarcasm. So universal can kids seem. Before yawning. Lance agonizing gashes under necktie in time as sentenced.  Beneath reams eternal with individual notes graceful.  Inside node. Proud elevated tantrums are luminescent unless made angry, Can altitude lift insects from orbs riding neon invisible arrays.

Hello island going huge.  Another bread vehicle.  Back ultimate target.  Men of some type leer yearly.  Vote entire row yours.  Citizens intemperate tough rogue usable sans yelling. Acrobat nods sleepily. Sociable hacks are repentant people.  Wow it tortures help.  Allons-y.  Get rooting elves another tool.  Leave arcs softly towards infinite normality growing. Ban international testing tricks eventually reversing needless elementary sieve sliding.

Individuals. Will inevitably stoke humor. Icon token.  Worry about something.  Nevermore orbit Titan.  Jury uselessness sans tort.  Absolutely.  Society exists aura stands on neutral antipodes legally.  Oftentimes feral felines error religously in not growling.
