Baseball Beer is Back!
and forcing a beer style
Hey there, glad you stopped in. Hope you have some nice plans with some beers this week.
Baseball is starting up on Thursday. I feel like the sport matches up way better with beer drinking than any other. At least the kind of beer drinking I like to do: hanging out, relaxing, talking, all while an activity happens in the background (a baseball game).
You’re not having to stand up all the time. There is not a constant stream of loud stadium/arena music. You can just relax, have a conversation with the people around you (or not talk at all), sip on some beer, all while a live event happens in front of you.
A Lo-Fi sport for Lo-Fi drinking.
It’s good to see some stadiums have Indie Beer options at most of the parks now, too.
(We used to have two options: Bud. Bud Light.)
I gotta say, of all the MLB parks I have been to (just all in the West, to be honest), San Diego’s has the best beer selection. But I am way overdue for stadium visits, so things could have changed.
Beer Drinking Experiment
I am going through a hard budget the next few days which means I gotta refrain from buying more price-y beer. This is bad timing as I am out of any good beer. There is about six Amber Ales in the fridge though (bought for someone else that never drank them). So it’s that or nothing.
Which makes me wonder if you can force yourself to like a style.
I don’t know if there are many people out there that liked IPAs the first time they tried them. You had to keep at it until you figured out that you liked them or didn’t.
Maybe it’s that way with Ambers for me?
Can I just keep drinking that style all week and eventually like it? Or at least tolerate it? Or is it impossible because my DNA will never accept the taste and I’d just be better off having tap water.
I guess I will find out and report back next week.
Thanks for the read! Hope you have a good time with your beers! Hope you get some sun and enjoy some lo-fi beer drinking.
Peace ✌️ Beer 🍻 & Metal 🤘
