Let’s face it, 2020 has been one heck of a ride so far, and not necessarily the good kind. However, summer is finally upon us, and we’re all hoping for the opportunity to redeem ourselves and really enjoy this year! Many of us are coming off of quarantine and we are happy to begin socializing, to a certain extent, and living our best lives.
If you read this article, you may be a vegetarian or a vegan and like beer. To you I say: Read on!
Upon reading this title, you might think I'm some idiot American, which is kind of true, I won't argue with that, but, I'm not thinking about suing the virus, I would obviously lose. The virus would mop the floor with me. I want to sue the beer company, and no I don't think that they started the virus either. They did unknowingly cause a kitchen fire in my house, but that's a different story. I have something else against them.
Craft beer is not just having a moment. It’s here to stay. Gone are the days of walking into the grocery store to find five beer options, all brewed by the same company. Your local beer aisle might have hundreds of choices now. You could set off on a road trip to tour America’s small craft breweries and be gone for years sampling some of the best brews you’ve ever had the pleasure to taste.

I've never been a big drinker. That's always been amazing to me, considering how many alcoholics I've known and am related to. I definitely did the thing where you almost drink yourself to death until you turn 21 and then basically stop completely because drinking legally literally took all the fun out of it. When I was 17 and 18, anytime I had the opportunity to drink I got so wasted. Not just white girl wasted either. I was too cool for mixed drinks (which means I couldn't stomach them). So when I wasn't drinking beer, I chugged bourbon from the bottle (because for some ridiculous reason chasing it with a beer seemed like a great idea). But like I said, I didn't carry on this way for too long. The older I got, the more I just wanted to sit and relax with a nice cold beer when hanging out with friends.
I'm Matt Maratea, and I'm back again to share another round of beer reviews! The Sporting Chance Podcast continues and thus my "hobby" of enjoying craft beer continues as well.
