Sometimes in life you have to be able to make fun of yourself. Once in a while I have to put my beer snobbery in check. Like yesterday at the store I caught myself shaking my head at a guy buying Michelob Ultra and Shiner Ruby Red. In my defense, he was wearing his sunglasses inside along with a black G-Unit style wife-beater, black gym shorts around his arse, black knee-high socks, and fluorescent green running shoes.
Still, not everyone has the palate for craft beer or uses the right glass with different styles of beer. I get that it’s not everyone’s thing. I was once a mindless light beer drinker in a former life.
To remind me of my high and mighty craft brew dork attitude, my wife tagged me on a link on Facebook about the nerdy stuff beer geeks say which I found hilarious because it’s true, but at least I’ll own it.
