Introduction

Kickstart your week with a cup of joy on Brew Monday! Occurring on the third Monday of January each year, this delightful event offers a warm reprieve from winter's chill. Brew Monday was initially brought to life as a fun play on the idea of 'Blue Monday', which is considered the most depressing day of the year due to weather, debt, and the fading holiday spirit. Instead of succumbing to gloominess, Brew Monday encourages people to share a comforting hot drink with loved ones and engage in uplifting conversations. So, grab your favorite mug and let's brew some sunshine into this frosty January Monday!
