In one of those random moments of (seemingly) genius inspiration I conceived the idea of a beer alphabet game. This had two real inspirations, first was an alphabet car game my sister and I would play as kids on road trips. The idea was to start with A and find something on the highway that started with A, B, C and so on. For example, A is for Alabama license plate, B is for bus, C is for car, D is for dump truck, etc…
The second inspiration came from the Gashlycrumb Tinies poster my brother had on his door as a teenager. This was the same concept but creeped out with dead little kids, like so:
Turns out this type of thing is called an abecedarium which is the thing I, and now you, have learned for the day. The main goal I set out for myself was for each letter to be a beer name, failing that a brewery, or style. So I now present my Beer Alphabet (or abecedarium if you want to be smart about it)!
