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.

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

    • Rather than focusing on the length of a missed putt, I'd like to offer a different point of view, while staying in the genre of the most demoralizing shot being a putt.  Having to take a third putt, THAT, is the most demoralizing shot in golf.  F 3-Putts! F them right in the A!!
    • I won't play this course again until next January, but I did have five birdies on the Stadium Course at PGA West....
    • With fourteen years experience working at a mid-level private club, and more recently, with a year and a half working at one of the most exclusive clubs in one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the country, here's a few methods I can share to give you the best chance of playing there. 1) Most private clubs are closed on Mondays. A select few clubs stay entirely closed, even to their own membership. This gives the grounds crew an unhindered day to work on big maintenance tasks. A far more common practice of private clubs is, hosting non-member fundraising events on Mondays. It's a huge revenue driver for the club. Find out if this club of yours hosts any Monday charity. These days charity tournaments always have open spots. These events arent run by the club, so ask for the tournament director. Then find the charity selling spots for the least amount. 2) Have your pro call their pro. So long as you have a good relationship with the pro at the public course you normally play... If you dont, start building one. Whether working at a public course or a private club, you'd be hard-pressed to find a Head Pro or Directory of Golf that isn't a Class A PGA Professional. And any self-respecting Class A pro abides by an understood code of conduct. One of the precepts is to offer reciprocity by hosting players by way of reaching out with a special request. This may come with a guest fee, or just paying a cart fee or may be a full comp. 3) Reach out to the Membership Director under the pretense that you are a considering membership at their club as well as the others in the area. You'd like to set an appointment to take a tour of the club, which of course should include playing the course, to make sure it meets your needs, as a potential dues paying member. While this option may test the morals and/or values of some, here's some advice to put your mind at ease. So what if your current financial position can't afford you the means to join, who's to say that won't change down the road? Take the tour, play the round. One day you will be a member there, even if it's not the next day... I'll also say, don't abuse the process. Clubs talk amongst themselves, you don't want to be "blacklisted". Hope this helps! 
    • I don't think he can use pace of play as an argument. I bet Knox spent a few minutes surveying his shot.
    • In my bag I have some used, usable, but wouldn't use in a tournament, balls that I use when I practice chipping.  They're ones that have survived 36-54 holes of real play.  When I practice putting outdoors, at a course, I putt with the same type I use, but I use new ones (I'm not sure why I do this -- should I?).    Indoors, I don't have much in the way of the balls I use.  My indoor practice is with Bridgestone e6, whether it's full swing motion (off a mat, into a net) or putting (across a ruler).  I bought a ton of e6s in 2009 or so.
