If you are in any of the beer groups on Facebook you probably have seen the pictures of what is almost always referred to as “the best bottle share ever”. Basically a bunch of people get together, bring a few beers and everyone gets to sample them. These photos gave me the idea of have an epic beer month and a virtual bottle share. No you won’t be able to taste the beer that others post but you will get to see what everyone is drinking and drool at some rare/limited release beers. During the month of October I am going through the approximately 200 bottles of beer in my house and picking out the best of the bunch.
The list of beers will be long, at least 30 since I average a beer a day, and will include bottles that I have been hanging on to for no good reason. What’s the point of buying great beer if you aren’t going to drink it?
I invite you all to join me in drinking truly exceptional beer for the month of October, post your pics on my Facebook page, share them on Twitter. Use #epcibeermonth hashtag and invite your friends, relatives and other beer drinkers to do the same. If you have a blog and want to put together a similar post go for it, the more the merrier.
