Oh beer. That holy elixir that helps us cope with the raging side effects of being alive.
Am I saying alcohol is the way to handle life’s problems? Certainly not, but it is one thing that winds up being in some of our emotional support toolkits. After all, the Dads of the world whose hands can be found fused to a frosty aluminum tube couldn’t be wrong!
Beer is unlike other booze in the sense that it goes down so smooth that it almost feels like you aren’t just drinking alcohol in the middle of the day, at this child’s birthday party.
Cut to the wine mom chorus- “it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, tee-hee”!
Now, beer isn’t for everyone, however, it has picked itself up a ton of fans. After all, nothing else goes better with beach days, lazy days, mowing the lawn, breaking up sibling fights, making dinner, watching sports, building Legos, having a shower, sitting on the deck, gardening, having a barbeque, and simply existing. It’s the perfect refreshing compliment to your hectic as fuck lifestyle.
To like beer is to be in good company. After all, there are many people out there that absolutely love it. It certainly tends to help people make friends. Remember when we used to go for beers? I miss leaving the house.
So although it may not be healthiest option, it certainly does pair well the afflictions of adulthood, such as standing strong under the weight of crippling responsibility, and also parenting (psst- pass me another).
