Be Thankful

I hope you all are preparing for a wonderful Thanksgiving full of family, friends, massive amounts of food, and painstakingly paired craft beer. If you prepared a homebrew for this day, good on you for putting in the extra effort. It is hard to truly understand how lucky we all are for having the things that exist in our lives. A roof over our heads, clothes on our back, food on our tables, and people with which we share such things. We gaze upon our glass of Terrapin Pumpkinfest, Stone Saison du Buff, or Ommengang Hennepin and lick our lips with enjoyment while we feast. We laugh and play with close friends and family. We take another sip. We enjoy these moments.

For those of you who have the day off today, enjoy the luxuries you have around you. Be thankful for the abundance before you. Take a second to recognize your fortune. For those of you who are working, be you in our retail stores, patrolling the streets, or protecting your comrades overseas; we want you to know that we are thankful for you as well. When you clock out at the end of your shift or deployment, we’ll have a seat waiting for you with a hot plate and a pint of fresh, local beer.

Through all of our ups and downs, its hard to remember how lucky we each are in our lives. We work so hard to better ourselves for the future that we forget to look back and take pride in the distance we’ve come. Today, take the time to relax and shift your focus inward. Pour yourself another glass, assess your accomplishments and your failures, appreciate the people in your life, and you’ll see that giving thanks is just another part of “Living the Craft Beer Lifestyle”.
