Inky Beer Factoid: November 10

USMC Emblem [2x2]-1

On this day in 1775, the United State Marine Corps was founded.  Two battalions of Marines were formed by the Continental Congress to protect both sea and land.

Today, Dr. B drank an Evolution IPA by Golden City Brewery in honor of the U.S. Marine Corps

In honor of the birthday of the Marine Corps, Dr. B would like to pay homage to her brother, Lieutenant Colonel Ethan C. Bishop who is now the Executive officer and Marine Officer Instructor at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.

The last time Inky Beer visited Ethan in Park City, Utah, he was drinking Mirror Pond by Deschutes Brewery.  Thank God he graduated from his beer choices of his college years.  I won’t even mention those, but most of us can relate.  Happy Birthday USMC and Happy Veteran’s Day, Ethan!
