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

    • Yeah if you can sink a bunch of putts from the parking lot. 500' of putts is mind blowing. If you want to prove to yourself the value of Driver and approach shots find a friend who is much better or much worse than you and play 2 balls alternate shot. I did this for a league event yesterday and I was far closer to their average than mine. Hitting 190-220 approach shots on par 4s and a ton of 60 yard pitches over hazards is not good for scoring.
    • I think JV oversimplifies the swing in regards to errors. He stares there are only two areas to address based on your error. If your ball flight  is off it’s your position, your shoulders. If your contact is off it’s your weight. I know beyond any doubt there were times I had all my weight forward and still hit the ball fat. There were also times I kept my shoulders closed and still shanked it. There is still plenty of room and movement to be done to cause errors I believe. And although it’s true I hit really nice draws with 7i and down...once I got to 6i and longer the nice shots became scarce. Just couldn’t get any good distance from the longer irons. Drives were nice draws but I think the distance I gained was as I said before, better path and better contact with the face. But still nothing to write home about.
    • Learning golf is definitely chaotic, there's no question about that, but I've had the pleasure of working with several good instructors over the years, and there's also no question that they quantum leap you forward. You could spend an entire year practicing five times a week trying to figure out something that the instructor will tell you in thirty seconds. That kind of time/chaos reduction is worth the $100 or whatever they charge. You're always going to have to practice a lot to become good at this game, but if you don't have correct information or you keep ingraining bad habits and just keep trying to make them work, you will never ever get there, "there" being wherever you realistically hope to be.
    • For the last few years, we've played a 3-club 3-player scramble.  Played like a normal scramble, but each player may only take 3 clubs, and may only play his (or her) clubs.  Planning is interesting, trying to choose clubs that play to each player's strengths while covering most of the potential situations on the course.  
    • 1. Met - Handicap never went above 6.5 and ended year at 5.2 although that's .5 artificially low. Still relatively consistent for year.2. Met - Posted 40 rounds, averaged 8.06 for those rounds, 7.92 including 4 9 hole scores that I posted. 7.8 on my home course and 8.4 on other courses. I guess that gives me something to work on for next year.3. Met - Played Gamble Sands and TPC Sawgrass - pretty cool.4. Met - and then didn't meet. Probably about two pounds heavy right now. Have to keep diligent over the holidays.Overall pretty pleased. I think there's another stroke, maybe 1.5 strokes of improvement out there. Need to play the other courses I frequent more often.
