a twelve pack of songs for national beer week

egyptianpouringbeer This year is the first time that all 50 states and the District of Columbia recognize this week as National Beer Week. Enlightened barflies here in our nation's capital have been celebrating this week for some time now, even carrying the celebration over to all the months of the year. For those of you new to the party, we say welcome, and don't be shy about picking up the next round. Here are twelve songs to honor the ancient intoxicant, with some wisdom from the legendary beer drinker Homer J Simpson scattered throughout. And, as usual, we close with some Muppets. Cheers:
