Eric and Adam were over to meet Christopher and they brought beer. I informed them that he was only 4 weeks old and not permitted to consume alcoholic beverages, so I confiscated them. Inside the bag were two Cobblestone Stouts, A pumpkin ale, and two Crabbies Ginger Beers. I’ve never had one of these before and was kinda excited about it.
So after we downed the stouts, we cracked open the Crabbies. As soon as the cap came off, all you could smell was pure ginger. They weren’t lying, it’s made with ginger all right. I took a sip and just about fell over. It was SOOOOOOO gingery, like I accidentally took a sip of pickled ginger from the sushi bar. It was very spicy, almost to a point where I didn’t think that I could finish all 500 ml of it. I looked at the label and saw that it was made with like 20 ingredients! I’m used to 4, what’s this garbage?
We were sitting around, drinking our beer that tasted like a suped up version of Vernors, and apparently I was making some interesting faces with each sip. Eric kept saying that I could stop at any time…but NO. I will not leave a beer behind. We started playing the Ellen “Heads Up” iPhone game, which was a blast. Next thing you know, my beer is gone.
So there you have it. If you want to finish this beer, become so immersed into something else that you don’t realize that you’re drinking it.
EDIT: I believe I’m being haunted by this beer. I keep smelling it every once in a while in the kicthen. THE HORROR!
