It's almost June and you know what that means!
Last year, I accepted (and royally beat) the challenge known as the June State Beer Challenge, a whole month of drinking only the beer produced in the state you are currently drinking in. Guess what, I'm taking on the challenge again. Starting June 1, I will only consume beer produced in the Lone Star state of Texas.
If you followed my adventures last year (you can re-live them here), you already know that I didn't have a very hard time completing this challenge. Why? Luckily I live in a city that truly embraces the local culture, including beer. Not only that, Texas makes some damn good beer too.
I really encourage all of you to take this challenge as well. It's not only fun (I mean seriously, you get to drink beer), but it is truly a wonderful way to embrace your local beer scene and cherish the heart and soul that is put into each and every one of the locally produced pints you drink.
If you want to take the challenge with me, do so by commenting below on where you will be taking the challenge.
Keep up with the challenge by following and using the Twitter hashtag #StateBeer. I will also be periodically posting updates on what I have been drinking and where. So join me on this quest!
If you need help on what you could drink, check out this list of active Texas breweries (there are plenty to choose from).
UPDATE: I will also be attempting the @NoBeerTwice2012 challenge at the same time, which means I will only drink Texas-made beer and NO repeats, something different every time. You don't have to do this part, but I encourage you to try. Game. On.
Cheers, and Support Your Local Brewers!
