copied over from my instagram:
so itâ€™s six weeks post surgery and i am still not quite feeling up to drinking alcohol. (even before surgery, having just one beer gave me a headache so i donâ€™t think itâ€™s advisable to put my still-recovering brain through that kind of punishment.) but iâ€™ve been really craving beer.
so i decided to order some non-alcoholic beer that was recommended to me by friends. athletic brewing has some serious social media marketing game, plus theyâ€™re smart enough to offer free shipping if you buy two 6 packs. so i got two 6 packs.
this is one of them, a golden ale thatâ€™s perhaps a little hoppier than i would like, though i still enjoyed it. it goes down pretty easy and it definitely tastes like beer! i had one with lunch earlier and it paired nicely with the crawfish monica my neighbor made me. they say thereâ€™s only 50 calories in one of these! crazy! and while itâ€™s called NON alcoholic, it does still have .5% abv – i noticed it made me a little sleepy in the way that beer generally does these days but i definitely did not feel an alcohol buzz or that heaviness i often feel after drinking beer. so while this style might not be my fave, iâ€™ll certainly drink the rest of the 6 pack! and tomorrow i will try some of their STOUT, which iâ€™m very excited about!
