What is it about adding a layer of education and full facts into your drinking habits that makes it all feel a bit more noble? “I toured three breweries in Richmond Virginia this weekend!” Is something you can totally tell your mom. “I got so completely shit housed on beers I can’t quite tell yiu what city I was in, I just know someone shuffled me to the bus station and put me on a greyhound due south and I’m calling you from a pay phone outside of ….” Simp,y is not.
