Girls Who Drink Beer…

are off-putting, approachable, manly, turn-ons, unattractive, brave, disgusting, desirable, trashy, wife-material, wild, down-to-earth, secretly lesbian, one-of-the-guys, broke, hot, drunks, faking it, fuckable… really?

This past Sunday evening, I was somehow talked into joining Try and his friends for a game of poker – an STT to be exact. Okay… so I willingly went, but only because I really miss playing poker offline. Anyhow, from the sound of it, Try had told his buds that we was bringing along a friend, which they probably interpreted as “male-friend” – and even if he told them my name, they’d still think I was a guy – because when it was time to get the drinks going round, one character called Ace (who I assumed was the host) apologised, zealously for that matter, as the only beverage being served was *drum-roll* BEER. I replied “that’s OK”, smiled, grabbed a cold one and posted blind while a debate – where the aforementioned adjectives were thrown around – brewed.

Maybe it’s because it’s liquid bread – women are known for their love-hate relationship with carbs – or the fact that it’s associated with trucker cap wearing pot-bellied men with plumber pants, but girls who consume it are always and without a doubt gawked at… same for men who have an affinity for so-called “pink drinks” but that’s another post.

“Sorry, still can’t believe you actually finished a whole beer and you’re getting another one,” that was Si, after my first beer of the night.

Ace’s spirited apology should have prepared me for his opinion on the matter.”Well, it all depends on what beer it is and what she’s using to drink it. A girl that drinks like Amstel, Heineken, Peroni and stuff is okay but [milk] stout and [Carling] Black Label is like hard-core, man. Nah man, she’d probably beat me up. Same for a chic that drinks from the bottle or a quart.” 

Then there was Paul, the token Pom. “Half a pint is cool, yeah. A full pint means she’s trying to be a man, but two half pints is cool.” That doesn’t make sense since a full pint is cheaper. “Well, I’m paying and those girly drinks are bloody expensive, mate. Beer is cheap, so I can always afford to take her out.” Figured Paul’s just intimidated by a girl with a pint.

“Girls who drink beer actually know a bit more about what they like to drink than the ones who drink them pink drinks. They are sexier, more confident, fun and independent than say the girl sitting at the bar pounding back margaritas for no other reason than to get crunk.” That was Joey, who I think is confused, maybe girls drink beer because they like it and anyone can go on a getting crunk on beer mission – it may take longer, but it works – and a margarita is not a pink drink.

“Well, fellas,” finally, Try’s turn, “think about it… Girls who drink beer aren’t offended by the multitude of sexual innuendos and jokes that are inevitable when us guys get together and drink, aren’t you C? You can party with her and get garage pies or McD’s at 3am.”  No comment.

“Then there’s the belching…” What? It comes with the territory. “And what about your love-life?” Ace. Just. Had. To. Go. There. I went all in.

Well, it’s true that guys say they want to date some who drinks or can drink beer but they hardly ever do and the ones that do, tend to ask you not to do it when his friends are around *Ava knows all about that – Sang*. The down-side is that you’re most likely to be friend-zoned, even if they say you’re likeable and fun to be around. The other nightmare is that the guy you’re secretly crushing on is hitting on a Cosmo-drinker only because you’re with your guy pals – since your gal pals would rather die than be out with you drinking beer- and he usually thinks you’re doing one of the guys you’re with… *Sometimes, I like to think he’s thinking he doesn’t have what it takes to hang with me so that’s why he’s going for Ms Cosmo.. but yeah, just a dream – Ava* 

This whole beer-drinking girl stigma even has women meeting up in secret, practising and giving each other advice on how not to look trashy when drinking beer… I kid you not, saw it advertised in a forum. There seriously is no other way to drink beer than to drink it and savour each sip – me and SJL tried it in wine glasses, felt weird. The only trashy thing is a drunken mess – man or woman. So, drink what you want. If you want an apple Martini, have one. If you want a draught , then have one too. There’s no point in ordering something wondering if you’ll come off as attractive or not.

Besides, we all know beer’s the taste that stood the test of time.

  1. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

    Wish you success,
