I don't know if I agree entirely with this but the discord is mainly only over that "earn it" part:
...the best way to enjoy a beer – any beer – is to earn it, then savour it in moderation in pleasant surroundings instead of swilling it down in excess until paralytic.
"Earning" sounds so Type A. But maybe there is something to it. Maybe its like, after playing a couple of 1870s style base ball games in the sun on Saturday, how those heavy oatmeal stouts went down a restorative treat back at the KBC sitting around with 25 team mates, work pals, the families, the guests from America and a few of the hard ball opponents from Canada's next class of military officers. We had earned it and had a great time after all the effort. We, in fact, deserved it. It was a value exchange, after all: beer for labour. To not accept our just desserts would be to cheat ourselves.
It got me thinking. With all the talk of food and beer... or sessions of beer... or beer concentrated to the height of pine citrus acidity - we don't talk much about earning your beer and reaping the rewards in style. Sure, we all can talk of lawnmower beer, the what and the why it is, but is there also a separate beer best suited to moving house or wheel barrowing concrete or playing the big - if Victorian - game? But what activity best matches with your go to beer beer? Or, to turn it around a bit, what activity earns you an Orval or a west coast hop bomb or, say, an Aventinus Eisbock? Maybe dog sledding for that last one. A lot of dog sledding.
