I have to talk about beer. I like beer. I like to drink beer. After a hard day of biking, there is almost nothing better than a cold one. In fact, some of the best beers I have ever had have been after riding.
Its funny how at that point, the particular brand/flavour of beer is almost irrelevant. All that really matters is that its cold and beery. Mmmm – cold beery beer…might just have to go get one right now. Hold on a minute, be right back…
Ahhh – much better.
And yes – I am sitting at my desk at the office drinking a beer. Its Friday – its after 4 pm and I have got all of the work I needed to get done done. Besides, I gave the rest of the team beer first.
Now, for the record I do not condone, endorse or encourage any of the following:
- underage drinking
- driving while impaired
- public drunkedness
That’s not saying I haven’t participated in any of the above activities (and learned my lesson – believe me). The official “citizenclass” position is that alchohol should be used strictly in moderation. Unless of course there is a really good party to go to…
I was going to write about all of the snobbish micro-brews I normally drink, being lucky enough to live in BC. But then I considered the fact that there isn’t really a beer I don’t like, especially on a hot day after a long bike ride. So, I have to admit that yes, I enjoy a cold Lucky and even a Bud Light Lime. That’s not to say I don’t also appreciate Phillips, Granville Island and Nelson Brewing Company’s offerings, but I am not one to say no to an offered brewski.
So – here’s to you and here’s to beer – Cheers!
