Our 35th Session falls smack on New Year’s Day, January 1, 2010 and the hosts, Christina Perozzi & Hallie Beaune, have chosen an appropriate topic for the holiday: New Beer’s Resolutions. Their announcement is currently up on Beer For Chicks, but come the new year, the Session will be on the newly launching The Beer Chicks, a new website by Christina Perozzi & Hallie Beaune, authors of The Naked Pint. In a nutshell, here’s what they mean by New Beer’s Resolutions:
So we want to know what was your best and worst of beer for 2009? What beer mistakes did you make? What beer resolutions do you have for 2010? What are your beer regrets and embarrassing moments? What are you hoping to change about your beer experience in 2010?
The month of January, of course, is named for the Roman god Janus, whose domain was gates, doors, doorways, beginnings and endings. He was the perfect choice when the calendar was changed around 713 B.C.E. when January and February were added to the Roman calendar (before that March and Spring were the beginning of the year). Janus is often depicted with two faces, one looking forward to the future and the other looking back to the past. That’s why the first holiday of the year is the ideal moment to stop and reflect on the year that just ended and to contemplate what path lies ahead in the coming one. Let’s hear how beer figures into that in 2010!
