When you think you've had too many beers!

Came across this quote that should put your mind at ease, especially with the continuation of the NCAA B'ball tournament and perhaps a Spring season that will finally show:

"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, ‘It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

  • Honestly, I can't remember the last time I thought I'd had too many beers. I wouldn't think to think about that.

    The great thing with beer is that I tend to run out of capacity before I run out of brains. On the other hand, I have no such volume restrictions with whiskey and become brain dead before the tank is full.

    I agree, support the brewery workers.

    They say with age comes wisdom.  I think my drinking falls into that category.  It's been decades since the last time I drank too many beers, and probably close to a decade since I drank too much whiskey in one night.

  • Sometimes the morning after I'll think I had too many, but then I'll have one to knock the edge off.

    When I think I've had too many beers I usually have a beer to chase that thought away

  • I like to think about my beer drinking in these terms. "Do I want a six-pack tonight and a choice steak, or a single beer and prime steak?"

    I like it.  Makes perfect sense.
