Kicking off Memorial Day Weekend with Beer Photo Friday

For most of us in the U.S., this past weekend was a 3-day weekend to commemorate Memorial Day. This is a day to honor our the people who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces but has become highly associated with BBQ and picnics.  I'll admit that yesterday I ate my weight in burgers from 4505 Meats and homemade Thai sausage;  I regret nothing. 

So what pairs best with BBQ from any culture? Beer (duh). I was inspired by a lot of pics that came in for last week's Beer Photo Friday.   tweeted a medley of canned beers from Bikini Blonde Lager from Maui Brewing Company to Mama's Lil Yella PIls from Oskar Blues had me do a double-take with his pics of homebrew - one in color and the same with a sepia effect.  , who was drinking an Abita Jackamo IPA from a beach in Alabama, inspired me to learn a few things about beer laws in Mississippi.  At 6.5% ABV, this beer is illegal to even possess in Mississippi, where beer cannot be greater than 5% ABV.  

Thanks to these friends on Twitter for their photos:
