33 - Maudite
One of biggest drags about middle age was the rapidly diminishing returns on beer. I've never been a heavy drinker, but I've long enjoyed a good brew. Unfortunately, about the time I turned 40 I started feeling excessively bloated and tired with a headache about 30 minutes later. Like a hangover only without the wait. Instant Karma. It's gotten worse over time, and as a result nowadays I'm more likely to have wine since it doesn't have that effect on me. But occasionally I'll just decide to suck it up and deal with it - like when I have something from the Unibroue brewery singing its siren song from my refrigerator.
