I really try not to pay attention to Trends. I don’t want to get caught up in what everyone else is doing, I’ll drink what i want, when i want.

The Obvious Questions

Hunter S.Thompson, I can only imagine that would be an Interesting Conversation over a couple beers.

No interest in Reality TV

What would the world be like without beer?
Really Fuckin’ Thirsty. I’d honestly rather not think about it. This question might just give me nightmares.
