Summer is upon us yet again. It is the time of sea, sun and surf. It is also the time to sit on your lounge chair and have a cold mug of beer. It doesn’t matter if it is Tooheys, Asahi or Heineken, all that matters is that it is a nice cold beer. I myself love to have a beer during summer. Truth is I also like to drink tea. I am like the Chinese who drink warm drinks even during hot days. I am not sure why but I just like it. I find sometime when I drink cold drinks I get a sore throat so I try to avoid them. Sure I will have a cold glass of coke sometimes, but that is more as a dessert drink than anything else. Mainly I will have tea or just water at room temperature.
All that said there is still nothing like having a cold beer during summer. Especially if you are having a barbecue. The best thing to drink your beer out of is beer mugs. You have got to hand it to German’s on that one. When they drink a beer it is in a nice big beer mug which gives you just enough beer to keep you happy. There is no use drinking it in a small glass which will be gone in a few seconds. You need and nice big beer mug to make sure you get just the right amount of beer. Why muck around when the world is full of beer mugs.
Now I know what you are thinking, beer makes you fat. Whilst I can sympathise that drinking a lot of beer can give you what is commonly known as a “beer gut”, The reality is that it doesn’t need to be that way. Firstly you can drink low carb beer if you are worried about getting a gut. You can also go for light beer which will have a similar effect. The other thing is you can just drink less. I mean drinking responsibly is all the rage these days. So the point is not how much beer you drink but how you drink your beer. I say the best way to drink it is in a nice tall beer mug.
