Selecting a beer to suit the mood.

Recently, Adam Snider — loc­al Edmon­ton writer, con­duc­ted a quick poll via Twit­ter. The ques­tion: What is your favour­ite kind of beer? The sur­vey sample was small, but there was­n’t really a win­ner declared. And this also gave me an oppor­tun­ity to write about one of my favour­ite sub­jects; Beer!

Keith's Amber Ale and Boreal NoireRecently, Adam Snider — loc­al Edmon­ton writer, con­duc­ted a quick poll via Twit­ter. The ques­tion: What is your favour­ite kind of beer?

The sur­vey sample was small, but there was­n’t really a win­ner declared.

And this also gave me an oppor­tun­ity to write about one of my favour­ite sub­jects; Beer!

My think­ing on the poll res­ults is that mood can really dic­tate the taste of the moment (and that’s what I’d said in my lim­ited tweet back in the poll). There are many great labels out there; I’ve even blogged about a couple that we could­n’t get pre­vi­ously though one, Keiths Amber Ale, is now read­ily avail­able here.

But for me, mood really does influ­ence beer selec­tion. Do I feel like savour­ing a long lengthly chew on a Guin­ness? Or am I in the mood for a light and bub­bly Old Style Pils­ner when I’m in the middle of the latest First Per­son Shoot­er. Or maybe we’re chil­lin’ out with some friends on the patio with a BBQ — per­fect for a Grasshop­per.

You begin to see the delimma of select­ing a ‘favour­ite’.

Then again, vive la difference!
