No Glass


My wife is very much set in her ways.
Whenever she feels like a beer ... her request is always the same.
"I'll have a Bud Light bottle ... ah ... and no glass"
Why won't she take the damn glass?
Why must she insist on drinking from the bottle?
Why always Bud Light?

Where I work ... we sell only our own brewed beers.
We go there for dinner.
"I'll have a Bud Light bottle ... ah ... and no glass."
Jeeeezus! Is she kidding me?
"Honey ... We make our own beer here."
"Then I'll have whatever is close to a Bud Light bottle ... ah ... and no glass."
"Honey ... all the beers are on tap ... there are no bottles."
She gets upset and angry.
"Then I guess I'll have some friggin' wine! WTH! ... ah ... and no glass."
*HELP!*

Beer tastes the same in the bottle or out of it. But beer from the tap is like a tiny bit of heaven in a glass. She doesn't know what she's missing.

I've been there. I feel your pain. I think it might be time to start a bottling line. I would love to try your beer, in a bottle or a glass.

Your wife is an amazing woman after my own heart.

Beer from a bottle is always better than tap.

I had to come and find out more about the hilarious Joe! You are so funny!

Anyway, I like my beer out of the bottle too, and when I drink it that way, I always think about how my mother-in-law likes to say "only honky-tonk girls drink beer from the bottle." I guess Mrs. Joe and I are Honky-Tonk Girls!

Your wife knows what she wants!!! Good for her. It might be frustrating but well we know what we like!

that looks like an old picture Joe. you look kinda younger i want to say. but what do i know. my cap soaks my brain just like the IPA in a glass.

Midleah said...

No bottle for me, either, but I'm a beer snob and won't drink domestic.

Micro-brews are the exception to my snobbery.

Girl's gotta have standards.

Midleah said...

^^^ I meant to say 'glass'.

Duh.

Joe, Joe, Joe, Joe Joe slaps you in the back of the head

There are MANY reasons the wife orders a domestic beer in a bottle rather than a draft. One, the CO2 causes headaches in some, draft beer is easier to drink quickly so one drinks more when drinking draft, have you thunk about what the bars use to clean out the tap-lines? Have you thunk about how sanitary the beer mugs are? But finally and most importantly, the medical community has recommended the restriction of tap beers for those individuals prescribed a class of medications called monoarine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) as studies show that there is an adverse reaction to “tap” beer and recommend only bottle or canned beer….”in moderation”.

Oh, tell her I got a FABULOUS birthday gift from the guys....go see the pic I posted. She is SO invited to my house this weekend!

Maybe she just likes the way the bottle feels on her lips? If so, you are a lucky man indeed.

Wife is gorgeous btw.

Practically Joe said...

MI: "Maybe she just likes the way the bottle feels on her lips?"
ME: He lips do look shapely when sipping beer from the bottle ... maybe that's why I don't complain too much.
I am very lucky.
She is gorgeous inside and out.
