The Galleon Staff would like to welcome you to the 2017 Galleon Beer Issue! In honor of National Beer Day on April 7, we at the Galleon wanted to fully delve into the big topic: beer. There is an art to making and enjoying beer, lager, ale, brew, and whatever else you may call it. In Memphis, we recognize this art because of the amazing local beer scene, but we also recognize beer as more than a drink, but a culture. To celebrate this totally informal holiday, we have an interesting week packed with stories about everything from local breweries to recommendations for those people who may not even like beer. Here’s just a rundown for the stories on tap this week leading up to the big day Friday:
Editor, Mary Clark, discusses beer culture locally and nationally. It’s more than just a drink, you know?
Staff writer, Dominick Platt, takes a look at the Memphis local beer scene to bring you all the info you need to experience that greatness of beer right here in the city.
Editor, Lauren Jeu, personally knows that not everyone likes a good brewsky. Hey, nothing wrong with that! So, she talks about some good alternatives for those who want a beer, but not really.
Editor, Anthony Maranise, tells a riveting tale of monks who take their brewing both to heart and to the heavens. Guided by their motto, “Ora et Labora,” Latin for “prayer and work,” these monks pray as they brew!
All this talk of beer has us thirsty for a cold one. Here are our favorites!
The 2017 Beer Issue has something for everyone! So be sure to check back every day this week to get your daily barrel of good times!
Happy Beer Day!
