September 7th is National Beer Lovers Day!

Many of us are in denial about the fact that Summer is coming to a close. Soon barbecues and outdoor parties will be a little cooler, and likely a little less frequent. This makes it a perfect time to celebrate a staple to many picnics (for the adults anyway) beer and other adult beverages. September 7th is National Beer Lovers Day, and a great day to explore all things beer related.

How about some history of beer, and Connecticut beer specifically:
