    Embarrassed by my beer.

    So I rode last night and on the way to the trailhead I grabbed a few beers from the fridge and all we had were some Lima-ritas that someone left here. So instead of going to the liquor store on the way, due to time crunch with the sun going down earlier I just grabbed a few of these. I the went on my ride and when I was in the parking lot afterward I started talking to a bunch of people which turned into a bunch of people sitting around in a circle and everyone was strangers and I was drinking my girly beer in the little can. A little embarrassing. It might as well have been a wine cooler.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I'll drink just about anything that's free. No judgement passed.

    A new friend who offers beers is a new friend. While I might have a preference toward snobby local brews, I'll be damned if I'll cast aspersions when someone offers me a random cold one or if there's castaway beer in my fridge. And some of my best friends have awful taste in beer, records, beer, restaurants, beer and people (clearly), but we're still pals.

    If you just drank your brew and they scoffed, whatever. If you offered (even crappy) beers and your new buddies looked a gift horse in the mouth, then they're definitely not worth riding with or worrying about.

    I still say beer is beer. Though i don't know if what you drank really qualifies

    I say screw what people think, if you enjoy it, drink it and screw the haters.

    No clue on that, I'm hoping it's liquor as well since there isn't a section for it. But yea, who cares what you drink, long as you enjoying it.

    Lime a rita is not a beer, It is a small 8oz can with a syrupe margharita flavored substance in it,

    My wife loves it, I am the one dragging it trough the market buying it

    I agree not the most manly drink you can bring after a ride.

    Doesn't matter. Anyone gives you **** for it, bite the can in half and make them eat the other half.

    Otherwise hold your head up and drink your drink.

    Why would anyone ever have this concoction in their refrigerator to begin with unless they were trying to pick up teenage girls?

    Pretty sure you will be seeing Chris Hansen after this post.

    Well, the OP did say "that somebody had left there."

    I myself have a bottle of raspberry Smirnoff Ice somewhere in the depths of my fridge that a lady friend left there. Been there over a year, but you never know. It might come in handy with a guest who doesn't like beer. Or in the zombie apocalypse.

    I try and make sure all that crap gets taken with people when they leave because otherwise it sits in there for ages. Doesn't always happen though.
    I have a few bottles of soda in there that are well over a year old since I don't drink soda.
    Also, my buddy left a single can of Bud Light in there the other day, but that will be easy enough to pawn off on somebody if he doesn't come back soon. lol


    Either way, though, if "somebody left it there", then he needs to stop inviting teenage girls to his house. Same goes for the wine cooler in your fridge

    Could be worse, you could have brought a couple of Zimas and jolly ranchers. "Hey, fellas! Drop this watermelon down the bottle. It rules!"
