Have you ever noticed that a glass of beer is capable of solving a number of your problems? It cools you down, hydrates you, and helps you to relax. With enough beers, you can forget why you were even stressed or worried about a certain situation.
For hundreds of years, we’ve depended on beer as a coping mechanism. Even Benjamin Franklin was a fan of beer. “In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria.” We should remember that as we crack one open to drown our sorrows in Sherman Country.
That’s the thing about beer, though. Cracking one open never is enough. And if you ask for too many cans, people start to stare. It leaves you with evidence of how many you’ve consumed. Don’t give people the opportunity to pass judgment on you. Take a pitcher, it lasts longer.
Don’t Cut Your Conversation Short
Beer is not the answer. It is the question. “Yes” is the answer. When you want to have a conversation with someone and open up about your life and your feelings, drink beer. If someone is looking to talk with you and they ask if you want a beer, don’t even think about it. This should be a conditioned and automatic response: “Yes.” Of course, you want a beer. If you’re both holding a beer, the conversation will flow more naturally. Otherwise, one of you will be constantly staring at the other, wondering why one of you is sans beer.
Beer is not the answer. Beer is the question. Yes is the answer.
As long as there is beer, there is conversation. And you never want to cut the conversation short simply because you run out of beer. As such, take a pitcher. It ensures you don’t have to stop talking about something that is bothering you. It allows you to open up. With every sip, you become more willing to speak about uncomfortable situations. And with every sip, you have more pertinent wisdom to impart to others.
We rely on conversation to connect and heal. If we don’t have a beer in our hands, we may not have the words to say what needs to be said.
A can of beer may not provide sufficient conversation, but a pitcher will ensure that there’s plenty of time to get through even the toughest of talks.
Leave the Sweat to the Beer
As Homer Simpson once said, “Here’s to alcohol, the cause of – and solution to – all life’s problems.”
Life is stressful enough as it is. You don’t need to sweat the small stuff. An unexpected traffic jam, spilled coffee, or an extended work meeting is enough to stress you out. And if enough of these things happen in a single day, it’s enough to send you over the edge. The stress starts to consume you, and eat away at you.
Don’t let it. Grab a beer and watch the sweat roll off the side of the glass. When you leave the sweat to the beer, it helps to put things into perspective. And it’s amazing how much more perspective you can gain as you sip a craft beer at the end of a long day.
“Here’s to alcohol, the cause of — and solution to — all life’s problems.” ~ Homer Simpson
Alcohol may be the cause of some of life’s problems if you drink too much. Don’t let it get to that point. Don’t be like Homer. Instead, let beer be the solution to the stress that you have. When you learn not to sweat the small stuff, you’ll be happier. And when you’re happier, you’ll be healthier.
So, raise a glass (or a pitcher) of beer as you toast to a stress-free life. If you drink enough, you may just forget that there’s any stress in your life. And if you invite friends to share the pitcher, you’ll always have plenty of conversation.
Get Your Money’s Worth
Hit me with your best shot. Inside of a pint of beer. That’s when you really get your money’s worth. If you take a pitcher to the table with you, a waitress should be right behind you with a tray full of shots. It will help to warm your belly and lower your inhibitions.
Homer Simpson is an expert in this area. “All right, brain. You don’t like me and I don’t like you, but let’s just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer.”
With a bit of beer, anything is possible. You can have deep, meaningful conversations. You can gain a bit more confidence to approach someone or make a big decision.
There’s a reason why you take a pitcher instead of a can. It lasts longer.
You know what else lasts longer? A Sherman pole barn. Seriously, if you’re going to invest in any kind of building, it needs to last. A barndominium is one of the hottest real estate investments out there because it can be anything that you want it to be.
“He was a wise man who invented beer.” ~ Plato
One drive through Sherman Country and you’ll see that many people love the idea of a barndominium. It can be turned into a home, a business, a barn, or even a storage facility.
You don’t chug a single can of beer expecting it to sustain you. And you shouldn’t invest in any basic barn expecting it to last decade after decade.
The metal pole construction ensures that the pole barn is long-lasting. They are sturdier and can be built in any environment. They are capable of withstanding high winds, hail, snow, rain, and everything else that the weather may throw at the building.
Additionally, a pole barn is fully customizable. It’s an affordable solution that meets your needs, just like a pitcher of beer.
The next time you’re at a bar, take a pitcher. And when you’re thinking of investing in a pole barn, contact us at Sherman. We’ll show you how our barns are the equivalent of a pitcher of beer. The local variety is the favorite, and they’re the best investment that you can make.
