Respect; everyone has their own definition of the word. Not only that, everyone has their own specific way of showing it. Whether it’s something like mowing your neighbors yard, or even helping a friend move; respect is shown in many different ways.

But, what is the ULTIMATE form of respect you may ask? What is the best way to show someone that you respect them?

FREE BEER! (of course)

Giving someone a free beer is 100% the ULTIMATE form of respect. A free beer is showing that you think so highly of them, that you want to thank them in the best way possible. A free beer is saying; “Hey man, I really think you are the “bees knees,” so I’m going to give you one of the few remaining buzz-creating beverages in my refrigerator to show you that.”

“But Kellen, when would you show this form of respect? It’s not like you can just walk up to someone’s door with a case of beer, say “I respect you,” and leave.”

Well first off, anonymous article critic, you can most definitely do that! And I’m pretty damn sure that if that person loves beer, they will GLADLY accept that gift. Hell, if you did that to a COMPLETE STRANGER’S house, I’m confident they’ll still say “Thank You” and bring the beer inside.

(They might give the  most confused look they’ve ever given a person in their life, BUT they’ll still probably accept it.)

“Respect Beers” come in all forms, and are given to all types of people. There’s the “Thanks For The Help” Beers, which are used to pay-off a debt from someone’s labor. There’s the “Sorry I Spilled Your Beer” Beer, which even though that’s an unwritten rule, it still shows that you respect someone and their beer enough to replace it.

Not only that, there’s my personal favorite; The “He Might Not Be A Snot-Nosed Punk After All” beer. This particular form of “Respect Beer” is saved for those moments between a man, and his soon-to-be father in law. This form of “Respect Beer” is saved for that moment, when you prove to your father-in-law that you are the perfect person for his daughter to spend the rest of her life with. And you know what will happen at that moment? He will hand you a beer, chuckle, and think to himself;

“Hey, He Might Not Be A Snot-Nosed Punk After All!”

So next time, if you are thinking of a way to show respect to someone close to you, think about giving them a nice, frosty cold one.

And if you don’t like them………give them an apple? I dunno!
