The Texas Toast

Posted by TxHny on August 28, 2007

TOAST: New Belgium Brewery’s Skinny Dip.

Beer is an important part of tailgating (and for many an integral part of the Sunday hangover) that means its football season once again. If the thought of a new football season has you feelin’ frisky, this week’s Texas Toast is for you.

It is so hot outside, I could go for a Skinny Dip.

Whether you’re naked or not, this beer is citrusy, crisp and refreshing on a hot summer day, (say Noon on Saturday?) With only a 110 calories, 7 grams of carbs and 4.2% of the good stuff this brew won’t ruin your buff bod. We got a six-pack at HEB for about $6.50. Make it quick if you want to try it, this is a seasonal beer and if you miss it you’ll have to wait until next summer!

Show off your six pack and go for a Skinny Dip. Or get naked and swim. Whatever strikes your fancy.

    Never am I one to sully the reputation of a beer. But if we’re seriously talking about beer that doesn’t ruin your “bod” but gives you that bang for the buck (and bottle), wouldn’t something more along the lines of Arrogant Bastard Ale be more appropriate?

    While not a seasonal beer (at 7.2% it can warm you even in the coldest of climes and packs about 75% more punch than the Dip) I think it rather perfectly fits the whole point of tail-gating, what it means to be a true fan, and can refresh your mind…

    I guess if you wanted to swim naked with it you could…I wouldn’t advocate too much arrogance in such situations, last time I did, I had to run away from some guy on a Segway intent on making a citizen’s arrest out of me…
