Loving the Craft Beer Revolution

Each time I read about craft beer sales increase in the US, I can’t help by laugh my big Buddha laugh.

When I started drinking beer 10 years ago, it was rare to see a craft beer in a grocery story. Now they are everywhere in my area. When I first started going to beer festivals, none of the beers would be available to me unless I went to a specialty beer store. Now when I try a beer that I really like there is at least a 50% chance that I can find it at a Whole Foods or a PCC. There is even a 25% chance that the beer is at my neighborhood QFC.


Craft Beer is even making it into baseball parks.

Lets keep on drinking good beer and keep on laughing.

Heavy Drinkers Outlive Nondrinkers

The people who drink heavy outlive non drinkers according to a new study.

A study found in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research s has found that not only do people who abstain from alcohol have a greater mortality rate than people who moderately drink, they even have a higher mortality rate than people who drink heavily!

The study is shocking as it shows that drinking some beer will actually lead to living a longer life. Which is good because drinking beer can also increase the quality of your life if you drink moderately.

The Beer Drinking Buddha’s take on this study is it is becoming more and more certain that stress kills. People who drink moderately in this study had a mortality rate 20% less than non drinkers and heavy drinkers. I believe this is because people who drink heavily add a lot of stress to their lives due to the fact that drinking heavily stresses the body and the people around them. Also people who do not drink do not have the stress release that can come with a good beer after a long hard day of work. After a stressful day there is almost nothing better than just sitting down in my favorite chair and drinking a good beer. I can just feel the stress melt away. Good beer drinking is not using beer as an escape from reality. Drinking to escape can lead to becoming a heavy drinker. Drinking to relax and add joy to your life is the way to live a joyful beer-filled life!
What do you think about this study?

Drink beer and be merry!

Hello world! From Beer Drinking Buddha.

Hello world! This is just like my first computer program.

Today I embark on the journey of bringing enlightenment with beer. Beer has been around since the time of Egypt and it will be around until the last human leaves the earth. I love to drink beer. Drinking beer is even part of my meditation. When I drink beer I feel closer to the source of all that is. Beer is a wonderful and joyous gift if used correctly.

Welcome to the site and I hope you enjoy the wonders of beer!
