Last night, we met a local brewmaster from Australia who moved to Ireland to make craft beer (there’s not a whole lot of craft breweries here yet). He summed up my first impressions of Dublin beautifully: “I moved here for the only reason a non-Irishman would – I married an Irish girl.”
With that, it’s time to hit the pub.
While you’re sipping beer and watching things blow up today, take a moment to appreciate what it’s all about. You have the freedom, as an American, to sip beer and blow things up. Unless of course you’re under 21 years of age or live in the state of Colorado with a fire ban.
A good day to you and yours. Happy 4th of July.
