I love beer.
I miss Old Chicago Beer Tours; drinking beer after beer with my best friend surrounded by other beer lovers.
I remember first moving to the UK and suddenly feeling self concious about drinking beer in pubs - all the other girls were drinking wine and beer seemed like such a "boy" drink. I quickly got over this silliness and appreciate at every opportunity that drinking a pint in a pub is (to me) such a wonderful "British" thing... which is why today's news that you can now buy beer and cider in a size other than a pint or half pint is some how distressing.
Government will tell you they are waging war against binge drinking, but I say they need to keep their turned up noses out of my pub. Don't they have more important things they should be sorting out, anyway?
Long Live the Pint!
