Beer Porn — Ski Day Brewski

New Belgium’s Snow Day Winter Ale

It’s beer thirty. After a long day of skiing, anything cold and refreshing will work perfectly.

[We’ll share some beer porn every Monday to get your week started off right. Have some of your own? Leave a link in the comments!]

    As a skier (newly converted, mind you), I can have my first beer at 11am, so long as:

    a) I completed a “sufficient”[1] number of runs in accordance to my ability.
    b) I don’t badger the (likely unqualified) barkeep[2].
    c) I don’t endanger my fellow skiers[3].

    True or false?
    What did I miss?

    [1] “sufficient” being totally subjective, of course.
    [2] This includes griping about the quality of the selection.
    [3] Inclusive of snowboarders.

      [Disclaimer: I have a strict brewski policy. Once I have a beer, the day of skiing is done (or at least extremely delayed). This is in contrast to my typical policy of day drinking with a beer being acceptable at 10am.]

      That said, to your logic, I’d say true.

      I’d also add the following:

      d) consumption as way of remedy is dependent upon the previous night’s activity [4]
      e) Ted Nugent’s “Stranglehold” [5] is playing at your 11am water break stop
      f) weather outside is frightful [6], but the fire is so delightful

      An addendum to your [2] footnote: understand that anything cold after a day of skiing does pretty damn well. Please also reference similar situations when light beers are most advantageous (ref: Beer pong, flip cup, quarters, landmines, and any other drinking game, really.)

      [4] consequence of said activity is based on the variance of gender, weight, and rate of consumption
      [5] the Nuge or really any other bad ass song. Bad-ass song being totally subjective, of course.
      [6] frightful defined loosely, of course, but sleeting rain does fall in this category. At which, please switch to whisk(e)y.
