I know most of you all live in cities, surrounded by a bitchin’ beer scene and all the culture you can handle! But I live on a ranch. 100+ miles from the nearest decent beer that isn’t brewed by a homebrewer.
As you may have noticed, I like to travel. Taking in the culture of far away destinations is definitely a passion of mine. But we have some culture here too!
We love wine and cheese as an afternoon snack! But it’s not what you might expect. Our wine often comes from a box, and our cheese is very often of the “String Variety!”
Shut up! I can hear you laughing!
I very occasionally drink really good beer from a bottle, and I drink very cheap beer from very expensive glassware. I mix the best rums with the store brand cola, and I drink $3 wine with an $8 bar of chocolate.... And sometimes mix moonshine with energy drinks!
We eat Mac and Cheese with Filet Mignon, and sometimes make risotto to go with a hamburger or grilled cheese. We make chili with beer in it, and cocktails rarely have more than 2 or 3 ingredients!
It’s called Red Neck Economics!
Do your best to get what you like! Save where you can, and drink what makes you happy!
Have a great rest of the week!
