Friday Favorites: Beer

I love having favorites...those things in life I can count on to always:
taste good,
provide quality entertainment,
sound pleasant,
look great,
work effectively,

My "favorites" in life give me comfort and bring me a lot of joy.
I though it would be fun to share some of my favorites and also to hear what others

So this week I will divulge my favorite...
beer --> Blue Moon!

Blue Moon is brewed in my homestate of Colorado and tastes so refreshing...if you can appreciate a wheaty brew (it's a lighter beer--in appearance, not calories!--, so if tend toward Sam Adams or Guiness, this is probably not the drink for you).

According to the official Wikipedia (haha) definition: "The beer is orange-amber in color with a cloudy appearance because it is unfilitered. It is also spiced with coriander and orange peel in addition to the hops found in most beers. Blue Moon has a more pronounced orange flavor than many other beers of the style, and also has a slightly sweet flavor."

Definitely garnish Blue Moon with an orange brings out the sweet citris flavor!

Blue Moon--and, well, alcohol in general--is a rarity for me these days, as a breastfeeding Momma, but on occassion I savor a cold beer after the little one goes down for the night.

What is your favorite??
