The Times They Are a-Changin'...
Your Grandpa and his buddies didn't sit around watching football while nursing 4% abv beer. No sirree. They went out in the yard knocked each other around until drinking their 150 proof firewater wasn't a luxury, it was a necessity.
Your Grandpa didn't sit in front of a computer screen dipping Oreo's into his tear filled glass of milk while surfing match.com, trying to find a the least likely lady to turn him down for a date to see the latest Star Wars prequel. He went out on the town in a three piece suit with his hair slicked back, hammering old fashioned cocktails and spinning any and all willing women around the dance floor.
When your Grandpa was looking for some relaxation juice, he didn't go to the store and buy plastic bottles of cheap vodka and sugar water mixers. He didn't have the time or the money to travel 20 miles into town in his old pickup truck just to get some booze. He was also way too classy to drink cheap alcohol mixed with kool-aid. What did he do? He fired up his copper moonshine still and made his own damn whiskey.
Your Grandpa was awesome. You're alright too, but you've got a long way to go. Do us all a favor and make some moonshine. Your Grandpa would be proud.
