Does anyone else think that beer is really pretty? Look at the caramel colored crispness of the Pilsner at the top and the chocolaty richness of the Stout (that was my beer) and the frothy gold hue of the IPA … those may not be the best descriptors to give their beauty justice, but I know you can see it too.
Not only do I find beer pretty, but I also love drinking it. There have been a few times in my life where I have cut back on drinking, yet I couldn’t bear to let the beer go. When I was training for my first half marathon (ages ago now), I realized that drinking often was really not helping my body, so I cut back to 1-2 beers once a week when I went out with friends. Then, a few years after that, I was practicing a fairly strict Paleo lifestyle … except that I refused to give up beer (which is far from Paleo!!) and chocolate. These days, I drink a whole lot less than I did when I was living/working in the city and drinking makes me feel crappier now (actually, I’m just more aware of the crappy feeling and no longer using it to drown out my unhappy lifestyle), but I still won’t quit beer. I love beer … looking at it and drinking it (the latter preferred).
Now don’t ask me what this has to do with being creative because I got nothing. I just figured you all would want to see some beautiful beers and hear my story. Next time, you drink a beer, cheers to creativity! Or draw/write something bad ass on your bar napkin (and send me a photo pretty please) … see, creativity can be linked to anything ;)
