Beer. Behold it's glory and be glad. It's done great things for me. Not only does it bring good nutritional value, but I've enjoyed my time consuming beer. Tasting it's frothy goodness always brings a smile to my face. Some members of the opposite sex even find me moderately attractive when they've gulped down a couple, or seventeen, beers.
Yes I do like myself some beer.
Now those that know me understand that I can be a bit of a beer snob so much that it annoys others. I will turn down free beer if it's any of that mass marketed crap from Anhueser-Busch, Miller, Coors, Kokanee, or any of that other crap Midwesterners love. I'm a fan of the micro-brews, the stouts, porters, etc. I get many a nasty look when someone hands me a friggin Coors Light and I decline choosing to drink down some water instead, which is basically the same thing, only tastier.
Thing is I actually like the taste of beer, which most people I know don't. If it didn't get them drunk they would have nothing to do with it. Understandable I guess.
People often ask me why I haven't made a career out of beer, which is a valid question indeed. I used to brew beer with a friend of mine and we had plans to sell our beer, but after dating a friend of his that ended horribly the friendship fell apart and the brewing ceased. Sad really.
I was reading an article about UK's only female beer critic. She apparently consumes over six thousand pints a year judging the flavor of each. I need that job, or I need to marry her. Seriously where do I sign up?
This is the greatest beer commercial ever. Every guy should relate to this and lately I've been in this position a lot:
