When Is It Too Early for Beer?

One on my buddies, and I had a chip/putt/practice/competition this morning. 

Winner decided the choice of beverage, with the loser paying. 

I won, (3 & 2) and chose a pitcher of beer.....for it's medicinal (hops) qualities. Supposed to be better than wine, coffee, and soda. 

His retort was "it's too early for beer" that "coffee would be better". Nope, a bet is a bet. Beer it was. 

So, how early, is too early for a couple glasses of $$$ Light?

a.  Its never too early, and never too late, its not just for breakfast any more

2. For my personal taste, its NEVER the right time for a Coors Light.

On the other hand, what time did you finish the contest?  If its before about 9 AM, I'd probably prefer a bloody mary.

It's never too early for beer, but life's too short to drink bad beer. Trade that gross Bud or Coors light in for a beer you can taste.

Couldn't have said it better myself, Bloody Marys are practically health food. No better way to start the day.

Well, I don't like beer.  So, for me, there is never too early a time for whisky ✌️

The only time it's too early for beer is if the bar is closed because 1) the clubhouse hasn't opened the bar yet, or, 2) you're state has stupid laws that don't allow alcoholic beverages to be sold before XX o'clock.  We've had that issue here because of #1, on numerous occasions.

Thought you bought might find this article interesting:

social

Employees in the craft beer industry often spend their days tasting and analyzing heavy beers packed with flavor. Sometimes they like something...

 

The answer for me - I don't think it's ever too early. Especially when Michigan is playing in football, because I need it!

If it's really early....I'm all over a spicy Bloody Mary (or if I'm hungover). However, after the first 9 holes....it's all good! I've opened a cold one more than once before 8:00 am.

The general managers for the Coors brewery, the Miller brewery, and the Guinness brewery all meet in a bar.  

The bartender asks what they will have.  

The manager for the Coors brewery says “I’ll have a Coors light”. The manager for the miller brewery says “I’ll have a Miller light”.  The manager for the Guinness brewery says “I’ll have a Diet Coke”.

The other two look at him in surprise…   He turns to them and says “hell, if you 2 aren’t  going to drink beer, neither will I”!    :-D

What I think is funny is how popular IPA's are now. I was drinking Bass Ale 25 years ago and everyone thought I was nuts.

I don't know how they drink that stuff. If I want something light there are still some nice selections not made by millercoors or budweiser. In college thats all I drank, then someone turned me on to good beer. To each their own, I can drink a coors light if I have to, if I squeeze a lime into it its almost not terrible.

 I always laugh at people who tell me they can’t drink a “heavy beer like Guinness“.

 For comparison, Budweiser has 5% alc and 146 calories in 12 ounces.  Guinness has 4.2% alc and 126 calories.   Slainte!  :beer:

Personally, I love Guinness floats. Just pour half a Guinness over a scoop of vanilla ice cream, delicious!

Beer with lunch earliest for me. I am someone who will drink even Poors Light with gratitude if that is all there is available as long as it is cold.

I like pretty much all beer (except sours and really fruity beers), and I still drink a decent amount of light beer. Sometimes, I just want something refreshing and with not many calories. A Michelob Ultra is great for that for me. Sometimes, I don't want a heavy tasting beer, either. Sure, I could get a Kolsch or something like that, and I frequently do. But a Michelob Ultra on a hot day after mowing the lawn is also great for me.

I think I'm the opposite of a beer snob in some sense. While I enjoy good beer, I also don't really look down on people who drink bad beer. Except Bud Light. That shit is gross. :P

    • I agree, I can feel it too.  But you get used to it pretty quickly and then you don’t even think of it.
    • What loft was he using on those heads?  The Flash is a low spin head, I forget what the TS2 is.  With an 85 mph clubhead speed I’d be as concerned about the head as I am the shaft.  The Flash also has the weights, how are those set up? FWIW my son is also small... older than your son but he is 5’even and 80lbs.  He hits a Ping G SFT 12 degree with a senior shaft.  Hits it about 225 yards with a tight little draw.  He has always had a draw anyway.    I didn’t mind getting him the SFT because he plays it at full length and the SFT feature would enable him hitting a draw with a shaft that’s too long so he would get some distance.
    • So I haven't been pleased with my putting lately.  It just seems like I have been fighting it on the backswing, and that is throwing me off. So I thought I would pull out a bunch of putters. like many people have and weigh them and see what the balance turned out to be.  This is not scientific since I am using a Taylormade Monza IB Spider as the baseline weight and using a digital scale.  I realize this only gives me overall static weight of the putter and not the head weight.  I'm just guessing at that since they all have small pistol grips.  The IB weighed 537gr and has a spec of 350gr headweight.  It has a slight toe balance. 1930's Burke 15oz, 90* toe balance (Found in my parent's garage as a kid and actually used it a long time ago because I thought it was cool). 1985 Taylormade TPA V 488gr 17-1/4oz, guess 300gr HW slight toe (First real putter that I used for a long time... Nevada Bob's). 1990's Teradrops TD-xx 504/508 17-3/4oz, guess 315/320gr HW slight toe (Drank the roll face kool-aid a few years ago, they do roll nice). 2008 Adams Mallet 523gr 18-1/2oz, guess 335gr HW face balance (Got this after wife took my IB, I loved this putter before Jim Jones got a hold of me... back in the bag). I have others, the 80's are around the same weight (slight toe, except one that is about 80*) and I have a Teardrop RFD that is "toe up" by 30* and is almost 19-1/2oz-360gr HW.  It is super stable... but boy I hate that one. I realize that my list is really low budget and most people wouldn't be caught dead with any of them.  But this was kind of an exercise in looking back at the years and also have some baseline for me.  I don't buy a lot, but I realize that I've picked up too much of the same that isn't working, at least for my current setup.

    • I get it.  But the bottom line is, that just because it’s on the cart path, the actual procedure doesn’t change at all from any other drop.  That’s why you’re not finding anything.  There’s no difference in the procedure at all.
