This Is the Only Beer App That Matters

Beer. Beer? Beer! Beer?! There's a new messaging app making the rounds that has one purpose and one purpose only: asking your friends if they want beer. Everyone pack up your stuff and go home, the mobile drinking world has been officially conquered. 

The aptly-named messenger sends the single message of "Beer?!" to any friends on the app in an attempt to, well...acquire beer, obviously. Of course, this all comes only a few months after the wild success (!?) of the infamous one-word messaging app, Yo.

Unlike the surreptitious language of Yo, this particular service poses a very straightforward answer to the very question you're asking. Because how do you quell the need for beer? You just drink beer, duh. Users can respond to your "Beer?!" with a "Beer?!" of their own, or turn off their phone and fall asleep, depending on how cool they are. 

Is this one-click-no-worries messaging fad going to last? As a warm-blooded American and a cold-blooded businessman, I hope it does. There's nothing more patriotic than instant gratification—it's as American as apple pie, bald eagles, and Chinese food.
