Thanksgiving, Wine, Beer, the Menu, the Family...the Redux

This piece I did last year pretty much covers everything I have to say about drinking on Thanksgiving. I don't see much point in re-writing it just to have something new.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone: there's room for every drink at your table -- beer, wine, spirits, cider, even mead -- and room for every friendly heart. Cheers!

52 weeks later, and there's that sweet reminder of my beloved National Premium again. I toured the brewery on the beltway many years ago, and their brewmaster told me that he'd suggested to management that Premium could be built into a major regional or even national brand with the right promotion.

He was convinced it could hold its own among the competition. I agreed. Still do.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

My memories of National Premium are from going to Memorial Stadium in Baltimore in the 80s. As I recall National Premium was neither national nor was it premium.

Sam K-- could have been yuengling lager before yuengling lager if marketed properly.

Maybe could have been Yuengling Lager in the day, but who knows? Still, it was a great mainstream beer, despite Anony's reminiscences in the early '80s...too bad! I'm way happier that I've got my life and memories instead of yours, Nony!
