Hoppy New Year

Nope, that’s not a mispelling in the title of this blog. At our house, where home beer-brewing is practiced regularly, happy often turns into hoppy in reverence for one of brewing’s key ingredients — hops.

A few home brews were quaffed at our house to welcome in the New Year. I especially like this toast, credited to the Irish, which I would have utilized if I was good a memorization:

In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, never in want.

Hoppy New Year.
