Drink Local for the Month of June

The Beer Mapping Project (a GREAT website for finding beer when travelling) has issued the following challenge for the month of June: only drink beer produced in the state where you are currently drinking. In other words, if you’re planning to stay in Texas for the entire month of June, then you can only drink beers brewed in Texas. If you travel to Colorado for the weekend, then you can only drink beer brewed in Colorado while you’re there. Its all just for fun but the idea is to show your support for the local craft breweries. Considering HB602 was just killed in the TX Senate by objections raised by ABInBev, its never been a better time to show your support for all the Texas breweries. And with all the new breweries that have been opening, you certainly have a pretty wide selection of beers to choose from. If your favourite bar, restaurant or package store doesn’t carry Texas beer, then politely ask if they will start. If you decide to take on the challenge and use Twitter, include the tag #statebeer when tweeting about it to show your support. Are you up for the challenge?
