Happy Birthday Liberty Ale, oh and me too

33 years ago tomorrow, something very special happened... Let's call it a 'happy little accident' or a 'pleasant surprise' as my parents would call it... That's right, 33 years ago, I was born... (What can I say, I'm getting old!)

So, my birthday weekend starts tonight with a tasty dinner with the Misses on a roof top patio restaurant in the local area and a nice cold beer to go with it. Looking at the beer menu on line for this place I see they offer Anchor Steam's Liberty Ale. Coincidently, 33 years ago today, Anchor Steam's Liberty Ale was born... So crack open a Liberty Ale with me this weekend and wish us both a Happy Birthday!

From the Anchor Steam website:

Liberty Ale was first introduced on April 18th, 1975 to commemorate the bicentennial of the famous ride by Paul Revere. Before it became a permanent year-round product, variations of our Liberty Ale formula enjoyed brief tenures as Our Special Ale, available at Christmastime.

One if by land, and two if by sea, and I on the roof top patio with a beer in my hand I shall be...

Tomorrow morning, I'm brewing up a batch of Witbier, and then heading out for a brunch of sorts at the local watering hole. After that, I'll see where the night takes me!



  1. Happy Birthday! Hope your next homebrew batch turns out well.

  2. Thanks Dave! I'll be sure to post an update on how brew day went... Stay tuned and good luck with your next batch as well!
