For those of us who enjoy having a beer or two, we all have our favorite kind (or kinds). With the warm weather finally here, I know it’s always enjoyable to me to kick back and have a nice cold one. Whether you're drinking a beer by yourself or with your friends, it can sometimes be the best part of a day. Now I’m not talking about getting some beer, pounding it down and getting drunk. I’m talking about having beer to enjoy and not overdoing it.

How about where to enjoy a beer? Of course, it’s always a good idea to have someone who’s not drinking to drive you to those places, and remember, you must be at least 21 years old to drink. Here’s a list of some of the places that I think are the best to enjoy your beer.

    Your Backyard or Patio

    Grab some beer at the store and kick back right at home. If the weather is really nice, it makes for an almost perfect day.

    Your Local Watering Hole

    Most of us have that one bar and/or restaurant (with a bar) that we love to go to, meet up with friends and have a beer together.

    In the Woods

    A lot of people, especially people who live in the country, love to grab some brews in a cooler and find that perfect spot in the woods to relax. It’s always more fun with friends. One more thing: don’t forget the music.

    Fishing

    Grab your fishing gear, bring some beers, load everything into the boat and enjoy the day on the water.
