You know, not every beer night can be the same. Not every one can be a blast. And sometimes not every one can be spent sipping away on craft beer. It’s expensive; relatively speaking when you’ve got Rolling Rock at 8 bucks for a dozen. At this rate cheap beer nights are destined to happen much more often than craft beer nights.

Last night was a hybrid of the two situations however. On Friday’s, like most of America, I like to unwind. I decided what better way than with beer. It’s just delicious. We all know that. I ended up purchasing that 12 pack I mentioned earlier, but I counterbalanced it by grabbing one of Port Brewing’s Lost Abbey label beers; The Ten Commandments. It’s an ale brewed with spices, raisins, rosemary and it stands for all that is holy in the craft beer world, right? At 10% it makes up for choosing the Rolling Rock(which is not bad, truly!), but still came out to around $12 for just one bottle. Damn!

Having good taste can be expensive. But by the same token having such an experienced palette also means I am shopping and purchasing from independent breweries everywhere. This is a good thing, in spite of the price tag. As a person living in poverty craft beer probably shouldn’t be in my budget, however craft beer stands for so much more than just a good time. You figure it out. Cheers!
