In a perfect world, there would be only one form of currency, and that currency would be beer. Imagine, if you will, getting paid in kegs, bottles, and cans. Oh, how glorious that would be. As for paying your bills, you wouldn’t be parting with your hard-earned money, you’d be sharing a beer with a bud. And at tax time, well, we’d all pour one out for the IRS and sing “Danny Boy.” But alas, that’s not the world we live in today, and because of that, we have beer. And in honor of this magic elixir, we here at the City Paper have put together our annual beer issue. Enjoy.
