“Would you like some wine?”
“No thanks. I’m a beer guy.”
We often get this response when offering wine to people. Personally, I’m a beer guy too but I also dig a good glass of wine. It’s cool if you don’t want wine, but responding in a way that declares your allegiance to beer as if you were choosing a political party puzzles me. “No thanks, but I would love a beer right now,” is the response I often give to the same question. In fact, that was my response about a half hour ago, and right now there is a half empty glass of Harpoon’s Rye IPA beside me.
