Will I look cool drinking this? Possibly. It’s a highly awarded beer whose street cred could be attributed from the fact that over a decade after its creation its abv had to be significantly reduced from 9% to 8.5% because – I guess uh, millennials are weaksauce golf ball guzzlers who don’t need that much alcohol to be DTF with the DTs. Plus, the label iz cool. #blessed
Would I drink enough of this to go insane? But I already am insane, sirrrr. Drank a bottle of this and I’m pretty sure I said/felt too much. And not even the good kind of feels like that time I dreamt I sang with The Band at the Apollo Theatre. Truth is madness and this elixir will unlock both. So, never again! You have been warned. Feed it to Trump. Or your mistress/fuckboys.
Delirium tremens (DTs) is a rapid onset of confusion usually caused by withdrawal from alcohol. When it occurs, it is often three days into the withdrawal symptoms and lasts for two to three days. People may also see or hear things other people do not (like Journey songs). Other common symptoms include intense perceptual disturbance such as visions of insects, snakes, rats or Freddie Mercury. Physical effects may include shaking, shivering, irregular heart rate, sweating and swearing you’ll never drink again. Occasionally, seizures may result in death. Anything less would cause you to dance around in a bar like a man liberated from the shackles of marriage/patriarchy (think: jazz hands) and would then cause social death. So don’t even attempt to quit binge-drinking.
