Every good beer drinker should have a couple of dry days in their beer schedule each week. A dry day being a day without alcohol, to allow the body to recuperate.
For me, today is one of those days.
I try to make everyday I’m at work a dry day. I work a 7 day fortnight, so in theory, I should be dry for half the year. This isn’t exactly true. There are some work days where I end up at the pub, usually for lunch, or a quick post work pint (though the latter is more rare). There’s also holidays, where I’ll most likely end up drinking something every day.
Next year I expect I’ll be having a lot more dry days, as I’ll be going through a year of not buying beer. Whilst there will be some exceptions (I’ll be giving myself 10 passes to use throughout the year), and I will still be able to drink what I’ve already bought before the new year, there will still come a point where the beer will run out.
There are multiple reasons for choosing to do this next year, not just the fact that I think it would make a good weekly replacement for The Friday Pint. A full explanation of the project will go up in the new year. In the meantime, I’ve got some Session posts to read.
