Labor Day and DUIs
Great article and shout out from our friends at Best Home Brewery Guide
As we head into a holiday weekend I think it is very important to revisit important tips and advice for drinking responsibly.
As a home brewer you are often drinking and sampling a variety of beers. You have your friends and family over to try out your new creations. The most important rule in home brewing is to be responsible and cautious. Remember to pay attention to the affects your awesome beer is having on your friends and family when they come over for a tasting. Never let anyone drink and drive!!!
Being the most popular alcoholic beverage in existence, beer is everywhere. In certain situations, it is readily available and may present a problem for anyone who is not familiar with its side effects or being responsible in this situation.
Important Tips to Remember
1. Drink minimal quantities. If you find yourself drinking more than would be used in a social situation, alcoholism may be a lurking illness. The best way to avoid addiction is to drink minimal quantities and know when to stop.
2. Drink beer at home. The best way to drink beer responsibly is to simply drink it at home. This will eliminate the danger associated with driving or getting into a confrontation with others.
3. Do not drive. If you have consumed beer, it is best not to drive. Not only may it be illegal, but also dangerous. If you need to go somewhere, walk or have someone to take you.
4. If you are away from home and have been drinking, give your keys to a friend, designated driver or call someone to pick you up. If you need a ride home, you can call a friend, family member of even a taxi, Uber, Lyft…just don’t drive. The cost of a DUI or someone’s life is worth spending $20, $30 or even $100 on a safe ride home. Anytime that you are under the influence of alcohol, it is pertinent that you not attempt to operate an automobile. This could not only endanger your life, but those of others as well.
5. Never leave your drink unattended in a public place. This is especially true of restaurants, bars and/or anywhere that alcohol is served. Leaving your drink unattended may leave you susceptible to someone placing a substance in your drink. If you get up to dance or go to the restroom, order a new glass of beer when you return. If you are just mingling, take your drink with you.
