I am a beer snob. I don't drink any beer that has "light" in its name. I don't drink beer out of a can. I don't drink beer out of a bottle that has a twist cap. I like trying foreign beers and I like trying regional and local beers when I travel. One of my favorite beers is Four Peaks Kiltlifter. It was my regular beer of choice at one of the bars I frequent. During the first couple of months when I started to frequent this bar, I started having bouts of insomnia. I eventually narrowed it down to the nights when I had been to the bar, and narrowed it down even further to the beer itself. I changed beers for a few weeks and the insomnia went away. This was very disappointing, but ultimately necessary. Unfortunately, I need to add another beer to my insomnia beer list. Smithwick's. I've had a few while visiting Ireland and had very poor nights of sleep. The good news is that if I stick to just Guinness, then no problems. Yay! Fortunately, I have a short list of favorite beers that don't give me insomnia.
