So what do the Cosby Show, chocolate stouts and terry cloth all have in common? You're about to find out.
How do you do my people? It’s late and I’m tired so I’m here to give
you a brief description of a good late night beer after a long hard
day of drinking and/or working. If my eye lids allow me to, that is.
So what does one drink after a long night of partying or working? I
have a great idea! A BEER! Some peoples out there like to indulge
with a nice glass of wine. Others with a chilled glass of scotch. I
say phewey! Do yourself a favor and go for the good stuff. Beer is
the way to go right before bedtime.
Reason numero uno that beer is the right decision: lower alcohol
content. Let’s not get all hammered right before bedie-boo. I’m not
really looking to get crunked, but sometimes I just need something to
ease the nerves before I lay my head down to sleep, ya know? A glass
of scotch and I don’t even get to “Call me Ismael.” Just sayin’.
Numero dos is the flavor. Have you ever had a nice glass of Cab
right after brushing your teeth? It tastes like the underside of cow
dung. And trust me, that ain’t good. But have you ever had a nice
chocolate stout after the brushing of one’s teeth? Delicious? Yes.
Nutritious? Sure, why not.
So what beer should you have late at night? Like I previously
stated, gimme a stout. Gimme a porter. Gimme a Maui Coconut Porter
and I’m a happy camper. I can feel good about brushing my teeth,
cozying up to the Mrs. (that’s right kiddos, Maxed Out is off of the
market. Sorry.) in my finest terry cloth linens and I am set for the
evening. Put on an old episode of Seinfeld or the Cosby Show and
bliss has been achieved.
Beers not to have before hitting the hay: Any of your Coors, Miller,
Bud, Hefs…. Anything with a lot of wheat or corn. The reason? Gives
ya the toots! Stick to the good stuff kiddos, that’s what I’ve been
saying since day one.
Ok, so this has probably been the most juvenile and LAME Maxed Out
ever. I have written you all a really good insight on the shipping of
craft beer but ran out of time due to the extensive research that I
have been doing. I have also been on the lookout for the next beer on
my top 10 but have yet to receive confirmation on its exact release
date. Stay tuned. I will, however, let you know that it is a porter
from a San Diego-based brewery and that it should be released sooner
rather than later. At least that’s what I’ve been told.
Until next time my beer loving brethren, have a beer for me.
(ed. note: did we not tell you the kid could offer up advice both practical and aesthetic?)
