I may be the only one who’s noticed this but I wish Al Gore warned me about it. Apparently the older you get the harder it is to pound beers during a north Florida summer. Lord knows I have tried to refute this scientific fact with my own case studies but I have failed most of them. It’s just too bloody hot to drink beer.

One thing I haven’t tried yet is a Shandy. They’re those half-beer, half-something-without-booze concoctions my aunts in Ireland drink. I think it involves a sun dress and umbrella. Anyone have any good recipes? Keep in mind I usually drink ales and diet soda (not together…yet).
