Twosies

Waiting in my inbox was the same email I’ve received every May for the past 5 years. “Domain beerlaughlove.com is about to expire”. This year was the first time it hit me, “Damn, I have a website I don’t even use”. To be honest with you I wasn’t motivated to write and I was stuck on what my next “beer goal” should be. I finished 300 different beer before 30 with my liver still in tact. Now what?  At first I was going to set a new goal and continue to keep count, but writing about the same “citrus notes IPA spill” got boring. Stuck,unmotivated, and busy with work and other ventures ( Hey L.I.C.!) I thought about letting the website go. But I couldn’t just roll over and let that happen. With the help of my boyfriend (Hey Bear!) I came up with a new angle for Beer Laugh Love. Staring this month I will launch Phase 2 of Beer Laugh Love.  I will be focusing more on beer adventures around the Southeast and eventually around the country. What does that mean?  Breweries, specialty beer stores/sections, events, and all other fun things beer related. I’ll still keep track of my beer number (I’m at 386 by the way. Thanks Untappd!) and give the thumbs rating. What’s going to make this different from the thousands of blogs that are already out there? Well nothing, other than the fact that I wrote it and I’m funny AF most of the time.  Hopefully I’ll drink some good beers, see some cool places, and you get some entertainment along the way. Happy reading!

Weekend Read Before I WTT.

I’m patting myself on the back for finding (well stumbbling across) this amazing article and not jacking it from The Beer Goddess facebook updates.  It’s a great article about female master brewers!

8 Perfectly Good Reasons to Drink Beer

  1.  Beer drinkers are all around happier people.
  2. People wish they could be you. Most of your non-beer drinking friends envy that you can (sometimes) pay half the price of they’re overrated cocktail and get a better buzz.
  3. So many fun games! Power Hour, Beer Pong, Flip Cup, should I continue?
  4.  Major chick/guy magnet. Guys: Ladies like a man’s man. Not saying the cute pink color from the (insert vodka of choice here) and cranberry will scare her off, but it can send the wrong message. Girls: Believe it or not, guys go ape sh!t over a girl who he can chill and have beers with. Double fisting could score you double points or an intervention the next morning.
  5. You’re the cheap one out of the group.  You can go to the bar and order a round of Buds or Miller and your friends will still think you’re generous (when you only spent $15).
  6. They make great gifts for any occasion! Birthdays, congrats, sympathy, or whatever you chose to celebrate.
  7.  Koozies! Nothing says how amazing and experienced you are like a koozie.  You keep your beer and have people be jealous of your warm hands at the same time.
  8. No muss, no fuss. You skip all that juice and mixer and get straight to the party.

Any other good reasons? Let me know!

I read… sometimes

I am trying to make an effort to read more (outside of Facebook and Twitter), but with the return of all my favorite fall shows (and trashy reality tv) I don’t know if it will ever happen. Anywho… I came across this interesting article (per Beer Goodess Facebook status) about the decline of american beer sales. Sounds like more people are switching to craft beer! WOOT WOOT! So if you’re like me and you feel like reading one article every two weeks makes you smarter, then check this out!
