DRAFT

With more than 1,600 breweries in the US today and hundreds more opening their doors, even a connoisseur needs help navigating the shelves. DRAFT‘s beer, restaurant and bar reviews; travel stories; recipes; pairings and more are the preeminent guide to the world of beer.

As a Blogger Mom, I have the great opportunities to meet other blogging moms and dads like me! We get to talk about topics of the same interest, support each others writings and most of all make each other laugh with the our parenting stories. My friend Clayton was able to do that this morning with his latest writing Children and Beer Caves:

One thing I have noticed over my years of working with children is the attitude their parents take concerning the exposure to alcohol.  Before anyone believes that I have a holier than thou approach, the truth is my ideas are fairly convoluted.  For example, I don’t drink around my children.  But, my wife will have a glass of wine with dinner occasionally and it doesn’t bother me in the least.  My friends also drink around my children at parties and I’m not put off by them either.  Not drinking around my children is simply a personal decision.  My goal for this post is for parents to simply think about their attitudes about alcohol and their children.

Last weekend, my wife ran out of wine.  Therefore (being the hunter gatherer of the house) I went out to correct this atrocity.  When I went to the liquor store though, I saw something that was a bit unusual.  A mom, dad, and two children (probably ages 8 and 5) walked out of the store’s beer cave with a cart full of beer.  While there are some people reading this thinking what bad parents they are, there are others pumping their fists thinking, “Now that’s what I am talking about.” Though I don’t want to judge this family, I question the message this act sends to their children.
