How Early would You Start Drinking on a Friday Afternoon?
« on: September 24, 2010, 01:41:53 PM »
I got off work early today and decided I'd get some kegs cleaned and sample some beers for the upcoming Cigar and Brew Fest. I got a dozen cornies cleaned and have sampled the following: (multiples in some cases)

Fuller's ESB clone
Aventinus Wheat Dopplebock clone
Avery Old Jubilation clone
Tommyknockers Imperial Nut Brown clone
I'm now working on Herman Holtrop's/ Bill Pierce's Rochefort 8 clone.

I started at 11:45 this morning . . .Too early?? 
Just brew it...

well, you weren't actually drinking, you were sampling to ensure quality control for the upcoming fest, correct?

I'd say any time before noon is too early to begin drinking in the afternoon.  ;)

You were sampling (thanks blatz) late morning, around lunch time.  I don't see a problem.

A bit early for my schedule but if the day is clear then why not? Besides, you're actually working so it's almost required.

You know, if I didn't have to brew tomorrow. I'd do the same thing and take a nap later.  ;D

Well, I woke up this morning
And I got myself a beer.

And the end is always near.

You can't drink all day of you don't start in the morning!

I was at work at 4 AM today.  Got off at 11, but I've got to be back at 6 PM.  I am SO wanting a beer, but I'll have to wait.

I am aware of one of Denny's unofficial home club rules where one must have a drink before 10AM during club outings.  Am I right?

Try explaining that to the Wife. :)  "Honey, I was sampling some beers and I think I over-served myself!"

Well, back to original topic. IMO cigars go better with bourbon than beer and 5AM is too early to start drinking - unless you never stopped.
