Lie #1: Beer is a manly man’s beverage
The Truth: Women invented beer, fellas, so you best recognize
And women didn’t just invent the finest beverage on the planet; they were also the only ones allowed to brew it for quite some time. The ancient Sumerians, aka the people who realized that beer was a thing, and that it was great, used to worship the goddess Ninkasi: the goddess of brewing and beer. And btw, goddess implies vagina.
Lie #2: Women are afraid of beer
The Truth: It’s not us; it’s (probably) you
Yeah, I'm talking to you, Mr. Extreme Beer Geek that spends his days and nights trolling beer pictures on Instagram, desperately searching for every opportunity to belittle and bully all of us bright-eyed and bushy-tailed craft beer cheerleaders because you didn’t get enough love as a child. It’s not our fault that we were born with boobs and get more likes on one beer selfie than you will on hundreds of photos over the course of a year --regardless of how many rare beer pics you post.
Let's face it, (male) beer fanatics aren't exactly renowned for having strong social skills and dashing good looks.
The geeks that I’m referring to are the ones who completely take the fun out of drinking beer. They tend to be hyper-competitive, heavily judgmental, and unrightfully pretentious. These are the guys that stand uncomfortably close to you at the bar, anxiously waiting for you to order a beer so that they can either belittle you for making such an uneducated choice, or go on a tangent about all the amazing rare beers they’ve drank that you will never, ever be able to try, because you just aren’t as cool as them.
I'm not by any means implying that women are shallow, but I just want to throw something out there, for giggles and shits. Maybe it really isn't the actual liquid that turns us off from drinking beer. Maybe it's you.
