All the flowery cocktails, the hyped spirits and the expensive scotch whiskeys and still, I just can’t get past some good beer. After years of being an active participant and an honorary veteran in the spirit games, I’ve realised that it actually is my poison of choice.
There’s nothing like some good beer after a hectic day at work. There’s nothing like some good beer after a long journey, or maybe on the journey. There’s nothing like some cold beer on a warm afternoon and there’s nothing like some good beer when you see a few old friends after a long time.
Beer just makes everything better.
