Bottle caps and snobbery

My 9 year old son has a bottle cap collection.

Okay, so this isn't a photo of his collection, but it's just as impressive...

...and it is getting alarming large.

Recently I was alarmed again (and secretly in awe) when he was able to identify the beer I was drinking by seeing it in a glass.

Later I found out that he saw the bottle cap in the kitchen and was just trying to impress me.


This leads me to a confession....

As some of you know, I am a beer snob.

I have only ever drank "good" beer.

I have never lowered my standards....

.... until a few weeks ago.

Miller was sponsoring a free concert.

Free concert?  Great!

What's the catch you say?

They only sell Miller products.  (Bad Miller products.)

My hands were tied.  A pitcher of Miller High Life was ordered for three.

We drank.

I gagged.

(Holding your breath during every sip is probably a bad sign.)

We can't all be beer snobs.  I used to feel bad about this....

.... but no longer.

You can have your Miller High Life.

I'll stick with my microbrew, craft beer...

....thank you.

I am Mama J, and I am a beer snob


  1. Love this! And can totally relate on a yarn level! :) A gal from church asked me to make her daughter a poncho and then proceeded to hand me crap, crap, crappy yarn from JoAnn's to make it with. I used it, but my hands hurt with every stitch-truly. Never again, if I have my way. :) I am the Queen, and I am a yarn snob. ;)

  2. Wow, I saw a pic of the bottle caps and it reminded me of the time when I was about five or six and for some reason my mom was involved in a project collecting bottle caps. I had a good time sorting them, making designs, I don't know they were just fun.

    Then I saw I have something in common with you, I like good beer. I can't say I'm a beer snob I drink some mediocre beer, but I really like the good stuff. I also make beer. I just realized this is an older post, oh well maybe you look at from time to time.

    1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. :) My son just loves all the different pictures he can collect on the caps.
