The Firkin for November 2013


Water. Part of the brewing process but sometimes left out of the drinking process.

I was reminded of this when I ordered a beer and was automatically given a glass of water too.

How refreshing in two senses. One the literal and the other the foresight to know that a good palate cleanser would make beer appreciation easier.

And with the holiday season in full swing, water is truly needed to cleanse the palate as you go from a winter warmer that could be an IPA, a stout or spice filled.

Now if only water would always come with your beer order along with in vogue (health-wise) nuts.
