I can easily switch between drinking beer in pints but wine in ml, weighing myself in stones but my food in grams, and driving 3 miles to buy 30 litres of petrol, but I will never understand WTF a temperature in Fahrenheit means
You could tell me excitedly that it’s 73F outside and I would have zero idea if there’s a snowstorm or a heatwave
I opened a beer yesterday to find the bubbles all neatly lined up.
AITA for taking back the beer I bought for a party from which I was uninvited?
This happened just a few hours ago. I am a 19 year old man and the people calling me an asshole are 18 year old men and women.
On Thursday, a person I had a major crush on in high school (but who rejected me) messaged me out of the blue. She had never contacted me without my contacting her first, and at one point I realized she had had me blocked on social media, and so I found it odd that she was suddenly being friendly. After sending a couple of greetings/questions about how I've been, she said that she was going to have some people over and wanted to know if I would get the beer. The drinking age where we are is 19, and she and the people who were going to chill were all 18. The liquor stores in my area all card.
I thought it was silly that my being a month older meant I could buy liquor and they couldn't, and so I said I would love to go. She said "thanks, I'll pick you up at seven!"
7 o'clock rolled around, and she texted me to say she was in front of my house. I went out dres

TIL than in the 1800's, Americans drank, on average, 90 bottles of whiskey per year, or 1.7 bottles per week. This was because at the time, whiskey was sold at twenty-five cents a gallon, making it cheaper than wine, beer, tea, coffee and even milk. moneycontrol.com/news/tre…
Hotdog & Beer - Plateless food painting by me
TIL: In Ireland there is a popular tradition known as The 12 pubs of Christmas. You must go to 12 different pubs in one night, having one drink (most commonly a pint of beer) in each Pub. Participants usually have 12 rules to follow, e.g "No sitting in pub 3", "No using the bathroom in pub 7" etc. irishcentral.com/culture/…
No, your dad jokes about Corona beer weren't fresh or funny months ago either.
Since the pandemic began, I couldn't recall a shift without someone thinking they were "clever" by asking us if we carry Corona.
"Then shouldn't you be closed??" chortle
"Instead of a lime, can I get a facemask on my beer?" snicker
"Can I order a Modelo-virus?" cackle
Apparently the Corona brand has taken a 40% hit on sales from the name association alone. Similarly, the dad jokes can't die fast enough.

TIL a Vietnamese man was hospitalized unconscious from consuming too much methanol alcohol; doctors transfused 15 cans of beer about 1 per hr into his body to revive him. The liver breaks down ethanol before methanol which gave doctors more time to do dialysis to remove the alcohol from his system. newsweek.com/alcohol-pois…
Anyone else brave enough to admit that they wouldn't drink beer if it didn't contain alcohol?
I'm gonna say it: While I appreciate the flavor profile of many different types of beer (especially IPAs which are my favorite), I wouldn't drink them if they didn't contain alcohol. I feel like it's heresy to say that the flavor of any beer rides shotgun to its ABV, and I feel like, in another time, I might have my head removed for saying so. I do dig the bitter hoppiness and citrusiness of IPAs, but, if beer didn't exist and IPAs were just a sort of non-alcoholic soda, I'd think the taste is quite bizarre. The same goes for other types of beer.
Doesn't change anything for me, though. Tonight, I'm drinking Voodoo Ranger IPA, Red Horse, Molson XXX, and Red Stripe. I love the taste of all of them, but I do find it interesting that I'd probably think they taste gross if it weren't for the fact that they give me a nice, warm fuzzy.
Edit: I gotta say... this is one active sub, a testament to one's passion for the brew! The main reason behind my fear of posting this was driven by my inter

Is it just me or are craft beers becoming ever more expensive?
I remember being able to pick up a six of a good IPA for $7.99, but then it went to $8.99 and now many are $9.99. This goes for pretty much all standard, non-domestic beers. It's even becoming common for them to change from six-pack to four-pack, sometimes even raising the price at the same time. Used to be able to get a six of Hobgoblin for $7.99, now it comes in a 4-pack and is like $8.99. It's thievery. Also back in the day, I would drink Flying Dog IPA and pale ale, but I stopped long ago because it seems they nearly doubled the price.
I am in the midwest, so maybe it's a regional thing. I do know that there are laws involving distributors that put the squeeze on breweries, but something seems amiss with these incremental, one-dollar increases. What's the rationale behind this?

The Virgin Beer VS The Chad Soda
Saint Arnold Required to Shut Down Beer Garden & Restaurant as State of Texas/TABC is Including All Beer Sales to Distributors in its Calculation as to Whether it is a Bar or Restaurant
Essentially, all beer sold to the distributor and destined for stores, restaurants, etc. is being counted in determining whether the Beer Garden & Restaurant is a bar or restaurant. This seems to be an absurd conclusion for the TABC to reach, as it’s abundantly clear to anyone who has been there that the Beer Garden & Restaurant operates separately from the Brewery itself. This determination could lead to the loss of dozens of jobs.
I’m not here to debate whether allowing restaurants to even be open now is a good idea, but the fact that they are making this determination in this manner seems absurd and fundamentally unfair, if other restaurants are permitted to be open.
The only explanation that I can think of is that the Beer Garden & Restaurant is not considered a separate legal entity from the brewery, and since TABC determines this by the permit holder, if the permit holder for the restaurant is the same legal entity as the brewery that could be the reason.
TABC has suspended the alcohol permits for Buford's Backyard Beer Garden and Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot Icehouse for 30 days after violating occupancy rules during Operation Safe Open tabc.texas.gov/home/press…
