So, I'm sitting here at 8 A.M. on a snowy morning when everything is pretty much closed, reading threads here at this forum when a thought enters my head: "hmmm. I sure could go for a homebrew right about now." Does that make me an alcoholic? Luckily (or maybe not) I don't have any cold ones in the fridge right now. I think maybe I'll wait until cocktail hour.

Yeah . . . snow day called at the college where I am a professor . . . so no classes!

The same thought went through my mind as I cooked my breakfast . . . I thought, which of my homebrews would go best with this ham and egg breakfast I am cooking. . . .

I resisted the urge . . . but only b/c SWMBO and I are meeting friends later tonight for dinner and drinks

Nothing wrong with a breakfast stout. But, I suspect most homebrew has too high an ABV to drink as a meal beverage. I'm working more and more on good tasting small beers, so I can enjoy them without it interfering with my work.

Hey just remember it's noon somewhere. I've been known to crack one open a wee bit early. Only for special occassions though.

I don't think about the time when I drink. Not in a bad way though.

If you WANT a beer WITH breakfast to start your day then you are OK , my friend.

IF your NEED a beer FOR breakfast to start your day...that's an entirely different situation...time for re-hab...

Just remember, either way we're right behind you "cheering" you on...

Dude, you're from Wisconsin...if a "brat pattie" can be considered breakfast meat, i'm pretty sure a beer for breakfast is all good!! haha!!

NOT IN THE CAR, MAN! You're going to get me pulled over! Get your hand out of that cooler!

Hell, we should be up to Glibbidy's by 10:30 or so... methinks we won't all be waiting for noon to start sampling....

Hell on bus trips down to Yankee stadium we start at 8 AM when pulling out of the parking lot. Sunday will be a day of moderation my friend. Its going to be a long day and a longer drive home if I get tanked in Vermont. I do have Monday off but I have too much to do to spend it recovering.
