There Is Nothing Worse Than An Empty Can Of Beer

Pizza Port’s “Open Itinerary” IPA was there for me this time

Are you like me, when in a drinking session? Still desiring beer but knowing you only have one more beer left you can drink, and you try pouring some beer into your empty glass and find out the can is already empty?

It’s terrifying.

Well just now I had that situation except there was ACTUALLY beer in the can still! What I win.

Today’s lesson: Not everything sucks all the time.

The Last Words Of A Beer

Revision Brewing Battle Of The Lords IPA

Hello.

How have you been?

That bad? Well, it never lasts forever.

Settle your heart or something.

Thank goodness you had me this whole time.

Don’t leave me here alone.

Oh good you’re back. You didn’t fall in did you?

Heyohhhhhh, that is the buzz kicking in. Sometimes a DIPA serves a purpose now doesn’t it? We can’t all be “Lo-Fi” brah.

I hope I was enjoyable.

Don’t worry, there is always another beer.

[This is from the perspective of the beer I drank if it… talked. to me.]

Running List: What Are The Best Drinking Companions?

Sometimes a bright Moon and a quiet patio make for a great drinking companion

  • Dogs
  • Cats
  • Humans (a few of them – on an occasional basis)
  • Bottle opener.
  • Phone.
  • A TV series.
  • A movie.
  • A porch with ANY kind of view of anything.
  • Patio (also with a view of any kind of anything).
  • Book.
  • Video game.
  • Any kind of sporting event.
  • Plant life.
  • Pool or any body of water.
  • Bird feeder.
  • Wildlife.

Peaceful drinking to you and your beer. 🍻✌️
