DALLAS (KDAF) — When it comes to drinking beer, where is the best place to do it? At home, at the ball game, at a bar, at a festival, camping, or maybe at the beach?

We say there’s no bad place, as long as the drinking remains in the responsible category; what better day to discuss enjoying a beer responsibly than Wednesday, September 28, National Drink Beer Day?

NationalToday says, “So much beer, so little time! National Drink Beer Day on September 28 always puts us in mind of Benjamin Buford Blue aka ‘Bubba’ in “Forrest Gump” and his recitation of all the different kinds of shrimp he loves. Remember? Well, today, we consider all the beers that make us happy. You’ve got porters, ales, lagers, stouts, blocks, and everything in-between.”
