Beer and writing are almost synonymous and just happen to be two of my favorite things.

November is the one month of the year when the two come together gloriously. November brings out the deliciously dark beers – Porters, Stouts, English Style Old Ale to name a few. Beers meant to keep you warm in the cold weather whenever it decides to arrive in Colorado.

What’s your favorite winter beer?

November is also NaNoWriMo, for those of you who don’t know which is probably most of you, it stands for National Novel Writing Month. For one month (November) hundreds of thousands of people from around the world come together for one mission – Write 50,000 words in 30 days (a small novel). This will be my 5th NaNoWriMo and I have successfully completed it 3 out of the last 4 years.

It takes creativity, perseverance, and many dark beers to cross the finish line. If anyone wants to join me, please add me as a writing buddy. My NaNo name is Liah2131 and you have a full week to decide ๐Ÿ™‚

The month of November will be filled with heavy beers and heavier writing.

Each week in November we will also be pairing an author with their spirit-beer, like a spirit-animal, but better.

Anyone out there have any suggestions?

Here’s one to get you started:

Jane Austen and Royal Oil – English Barleywine from Bull & Bush Brewery (Denver)
