It’s April 7… Today, Pair a Good Smoke with a Beer.

Yup, another important day in the calendar of days is upon us: National Beer Day, … enacted April 7, 1933 by President Franklin Roosevelt post Prohibition, after America had suffered 13 beerless years. to remember the good pints of life. Ref: https://nationaldaycalendar.com/days-2/national-beer-day-april-7/

… and while beer has been a staple for a very long time, and cigars came out of the New World, it was also here that both have found a great pairing, for they share the passions for taste, enjoyment, and craftsmanship. I read this cool article by Alan Wolfe:“Pairing Craft Beer and Cigars: The Basics“ on CraftBeer.com and thought you would like it: https://www.craftbeer.com/craft-beer-muses/pairing-craft-beer-cigars-basics.

This article made me ponder our obsessions of handmade cigars and craft beer…Both are arguably not so much a necessity of life, but rather an important expression of leisure, to destress, and nourish the soul, mind, and body. And, alas, both go soo well together!

Should a Guinness pair with GoBragh because both are from Ireland? Perhaps on St. Patricks day, or when celebrating craftsmanship but otherwise … not so much, because Beer and Cigar pairings are not about rules, or convention…but much more about your personal, individual taste experience and leisure. What pairs with me quite happily may well form a taste dissonance with you, and that’s not because of any observance of rules of “tastyquette” but simply because, when it comes to taste and cigars there’s something much deeper and far more individual to celebrate and for many of you folks yet to discover!

It is worthwhile to remember what clicked in that warm and fuzzy realm of taking a sip and breath away from stress and pressures of life to enjoy a pint with a cigar! Please write down and remember that mental lightbulb of a fine pairing moment and share it here or with framily, and most importantly,… find the leisure of moments that belong to you, to make it happen again.
