Do you know where your beer really comes from? In the early 2000s, about a dozen breweries produced the majority of the beer in the world. Today, just five conglomerates produce over fifty percent of all the beer in the world. You'll recognize the names of some of these companies, like MillerCoors, but you may not realize the true reach of these behemoth brands. The largest beer companies in the world own multiple craft brewers (or, rather, former craft brewers) in addition to the massive brands you probably already recognize.
Being that I was homeless for about twenty-three years, I had to make friends and people to hang out with. It wasn’t easy to find people that would steal from you or that wanted to fight, but there was a good crowd that I ended up hanging out with.
Beer. We all love it. Until we don't. This isn't about those mornings after a few too many pops. This is about the times that the delicious combo of hops and barley comes together and fits the situation perfectly.

We've all had bad hangovers, or times when we drank a little too much and ended up spending the night wrapped around a porcelain throne. Sometimes, however, the negative side effects of alcohol aren't your fault, especially if you only had one or two drinks. A wide variety of allergic reactions can be traced to alcohol, and no alcohol is the root of more allergic reactions than beer.

Hi, my name is Jerrica and I hate beer. Ha. I drink it every now and then because I’m cheap and beer is usually cheaper when you go out. What’s better than a $2 PBR? Well honestly, lots of things are. But my bank account and my frugal ways surpass whatever my taste buds have to say. Well, not always, but definitely if I find myself going to the bar more than twice a week. And as long as it contains alcohol, it shouldn’t matter right? That sounds absolutely ridiculous but hey, a broke chick has got to do what she’s got to do to get a buzz going on a budget. Plus, if you get a beer at the bar, it’s probably better to sit on that one drink than to down eight margaritas in two hours, which... ya know... guilty. 😳
Were it not for beer, it'd be a lot harder to relax after a long day of dealing with things women are expected to do at work but shouldn't. Sure, I've got the best motivational soccer quotes to remember before a game to energize me on and off the field, but sometimes motivational soccer quotes just aren't enough and it takes a drink for me to howl at the moon like the women who run with the wolves.
Germany is home to a berth of traditions, like family-centric concepts and age old cuisines, both of which have been imbued into the birth of beer. It's been a common stereotype to assert the Irish as major and knowledgeable beer aficionados, yet it's actually an old German delicatessen crafted by monks long ago. The variety of types, of flavors, tastes, and even mixed characters have all allowed German beer itself to evolve. It's almost impossible for one person to try every single German beer, which is enough to prove that you simply won't run out of options.
I don't know whether it's just a "writer" thing, or whether it's an "everyone" thing, but it seems to me like everyone has that one friend who really, truly appreciates beer. It just seems to be the natural order of things.
