While bartending at the Anthill Pub this week, my ears perked up when I heard a male voice ask for the “Trois Pistoles.” I whipped my head around and my gaze fell on two guys nonchalantly leaning over the bar, inquiring about ordering a bottle of dark ale. I was impressed, to say the least. Think of it in terms of donning a slick and tailored suit: Your beer preference is part of your style, an indicator of your level of debonair. So here’s a quick rundown of why men who drink good beer are oh-so sexy:
1. Your Ability To Pick Something Other Than Natty Lite Shows You Have Taste. Well, at least when it comes to beer. Personally, a guy who can sit back and appreciate a solid Imperial stout for its flavor and substance is a plus. It sets you apart from all the sandal clad bros trying to holler at us with a double pint of apple juice (aka Natty, Coors, Bud, etc.)
2. A Brew Educated Man Hints At Sophistication. Your ability to maneuver your way through a formidable beer menu earns you kudos. If you can chat with us about how you tried the Black Ale last time but that a Pilsener might be a good change of pace, it shows that you know what you’re taking about and can speak with authority.
3. Which leads into our next one…SWAG. Again, if you have the knowledge to recognize a good brew when you see one, then you probably have the authority to offer your own opinions, which oozes confidence and that, dear chaps, is what every girl (and guy) can’t get enough of.
