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.
I'm personally not the biggest fan of beer because I don't like the taste, smell, or anything else about the beverage. However, I recently tried homemade ginger beer that my friend Rachel whipped up and it was shockingly amazing. Even though it's called ginger "beer," it's actually usually non-alcoholic. It's almost more like kombucha because of the fermentation process—in fact, if you're already familiar with how to make kombucha, the process is pretty similar. Ginger beer also contains vitamins and probiotics and is a healthier substitute to the majority of carbonated drinks. The taste was so delicious overall that I just had to make a couple on my own. It's definitely a tastier alternative to beer for people who don't like beer.
Better get to practicing in the ways to open a beer with an opener, because these peanut butter beer creations deserve a strange opening.

They also have some of the funniest names, I mean Sweet Baby Jesus and Belching Beaver? You can't not at these hilarious namesakes.
