Happy National Beer Day from my Windowsill to yours!

Last year, we covered what National Beer Day is all about. It’s the anniversary of Franklin Delano Roosevelt officially ending Prohibition back in 1933. Unfortunately, it took 76 years for someone to actually create this unofficial holiday. In 2009, friends Justin Smith and Mike Conolly decided to honor the anniversary of the end of Prohibition by starting a National Beer Day Facebook page. It caught on like crazy, and is now recognized by many people around the world. How are you celebrating National Beer Day?

On the Windowsill, we’re starting it off with another local Connecticut brew, Black Hog Brewing Company’s Granola Brown Ale. It’s an award-winning brown ale brewed with a “granola” mix of oatmeal, grains, hops and roasted malts. Now, I’m not a big brown ale fella, but when a beer takes home the Gold Award at the 2016 World Beer Olympics, it gets my attention. Plus, who doesn’t like granola?
