Share a Beer with a Complete Stranger
Have you ever noticed you can have great conversations with a stranger in a bar? And no, we're not talking about the kinds of conversations where the end goal is getting in their pants, though we have nothing against those chats. We're talking about the random discussions that can be stirred up by two people who've never seen each other before, and the only thing they have in common is the proximity of their bar stools.
You can talk about anything - religion, politics, whether Michael Jackson is really the King of Pop, whatever you want, without being self conscious, and it can often be a freeing experience. Or, you can just walk away with some great stories about this crackpot you met in a bar.
Usually these kinds of meetings are spontaneous, the byproduct of riding the pine in your favorite drinkery for hours on end. Dean at FancyABrew.net is trying to change that, however, by encouraging people to find complete strangers and share a brew with them, kick starting those kinds of chats. Dean's dream is that more people will have a spontaneous brew with a random stranger, and document it for posterity.
At the very worst you will meet new people and become part of our little world we like to call Brewtopia. To join our world you must complete one very simple task, you must go and have a brew with a complete stranger, photograph said event for proof and then return to tell us all of your quest.
I will add the photo to this site and you will become an official Brewster and member of Brewtopia. Think of the envy of your friends and work colleagues, it is more than probable that the opposite sex will see you in a different light, you will become more productive, funny, witty, powerful and you will be added to the list of Brewtopia members for eternity.
That's what we like to hear! It should also be noted that Dean is British, and apparently the British call tea "brew," so you can get away with sharing a cup of that with a stranger if you want to give your liver a break. Learn more at FancyABrew.net
, and don't be discouraged by the fact that Dean hasn't updated the site since November...even if he doesn't post your picture, at least you'll have memories of shooting the shit with a complete and total stranger.
