Beer Two: Liquid Gravity Brewing: Mo Diggity DDH WCIPA. 7%. All Mosaic Hop. 16oz can.
Beer Three: East Brother Brewing : Gold IPA (same as beer one).
Drinking session: 8PM to Midnight.
Setup: Foot long tuna Subway sandwich at 6:00 PM (slightly embarrassing – work dinner). No food afterwards.
Water: 16oz of water during drinking session.
Normally I drink two 16oz beers a session with an occasional 12oz or 16oz beer. And I usually don’t have more than a Level 1 hangover (aware I had beers the previous night but no headache or sluggishness).
Verdict: I think the combo of only one glass of water, not a lot of food for a base and a slight uptick in alcohol consumed all contributed to this morning’s headache heavy hangover.
I don’t think it’s talked about enough: A good beer buzz.
Maybe you are a normal fuck. You don’t need beer or pot to open up an environment for you to act like a normal person.
Sadly (or not), I need a beer or two to actually enjoy things. To think like a norm.
That came out wrong; I enjoy things without beer. I am not THAT bad off. But my anxiety filled mind quiets down a bit after a good beer or two.
The right music and a second beer in? I am usually feeling pretty good. A nice buzz, man. That’s what I like, what I need. It’s a big part of why I like beer.
That’s the “Golden Hour” in beer drinking. For filmmakers it’s that last hour of light, when everything looks magical on film.
For beer drinking it’s that buzz after two beers. It doesn’t last long, maybe an hour – one foot in reality, awake and still making good decisions, one foot into a mind altered state where everything is kinda fun.
I am not afraid to admit it. A nice little buzz is what I look for most drinking sessions. I like it. It’s nice. It should be enjoyed and talked about more often.
