National Beer Lover's Day

"Give me a woman who loves beer and I will conquer the world." - Kaiser Wilhelm

It's National Beer Lover's Day!

I only really started liking beer this summer. I used to lie to people and tell them I was allergic to hops so that I wouldn't have to drink with them. But recently, a boy at a bar bought me a drink... believe it or not, this never happens so I jumped at the opportunity to take him up on it. However, he was completely hammered himself when he offered. Not knowing this guy from Adam, I didn't know what the polite move was. I didn't want him to look at his receipt the next morning and be like, "Where the hell did this $12 cocktaild come from?!" So, I ordered some random local beer that came with a giant wedge of orange.

And it was more than just a mouthgasm... it was a lifegasm. Why had I been depriving myself of this beautiful, refreshing, flavorful, bubbly drink for so long?! Dear drunk boy in the bar who could't figure out my name (probably because every time he asked me, I'd tell him a different one): you changed my life that night. You did.

I can't believe how long it took me to like beer. Fashionably late to the party, friends, but here I am! Chin chin!

Happy National Beer Lover's Day!
