How about a beer? It’s that special holiday where Americans get fucked up to celebrate another culture we don’t understand. No, not Cinco de Mayo, St. Patrick’s Day! Since you’re likely to be drowning in green beer today, let’s go over a few basics, shall we?
Quickie Chick diva (and Facebook friend!) Laurel House breaks it down:
1. Just because it’s light in color, doesn’t mean it’s “Light” in calories. The #1 misconception about beer is that a dark beer is heavy, high in alcohol content, high in calories and bitter.
2. Like wine, beer can have notes of caramel, chocolate, nutmeg, rosemary, citrus, among other “flavors” or “notes” and can be perfectly paired to any meal.
3. Like wine, swirl beer before drinking it so you can get all of the aromas out of it… remember: 80% of taste is actually from scent. In fact, you can drink your beer from a wine glass.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Drink wisely — and DON’T DRIVE!!!
