Drinking Games for Pros

Drinking games are an awesome way to spend some good quality time with family and friends. I’ve got a few off-the-cuff games that my friends and I play on the regular. Each one with difficulty and added strategy. These games are not all necessarily drinking games but with a little bit of an imagination and creative thinking they become a whole new level of fun and entertainment.

cedar creekby Jordan Burke

Drinking beer is a favorite hobby of mine.  Dankosaurus I.P.A., by Cedar Creek Brewery, is hands down my favorite beer at the moment.  Now I cannot say I enjoy all I.P.A.’s, but this one has helped open my mind to a whole new world of beer.  That deep dank smell with citrus and pine flavor always remind me of my other favorite “hobby”.  Truly a must try for all the west coast style I.P.A. fans.  I can remember the first time I sampled this monster.  Continue reading
