What was I thinking when I decided to go on a no beer diet for the next 30 days?
I have always been a beer girl, but I developed a new love for beer when I started getting my feet wet with craft beers at the beginning of the summer. Some of my new favorite beers include McMurray’s Irish Stout, Tripel Karmeliet (which will kick you in your ass if you’re not careful), VBC Golden Monkey and Shiner’s Wild Hare P.A. I was to the point where when we were all going out, I was ordering these very hoppy beers while all of my girlfriends were ordering vokda waters and Michelob Ultras. Who would have thought that craft beers have more calories than the standard light lager? (total FML moment…)
The Dallas Cowboys have their first game of the season tonight. I could totally go for a beer at a local pub and pretend like I know what’s going on while surrounded by tipsy guys that just got off work. Even bigger bummer: The Common Table’s Beerfest -my favorite place to go in Uptown for a good beer- is this Saturday! Talk about terrible timing on my part.
We’ll see how long this lasts…
