And what many don’t realise is that there’s a wide range of beers marketed to appeal to all sorts of professions. Even accountants.
Here are this year’s accountancy best-sellers…
‘VAT Ninja’ 5.7%
Smooth and sleek dark ale that creeps up on you and packs a punch. Comprises delicate hops with no hint of what comes next. Other than a heavy chocolate flavour and you feeling 20% more tipsy than you should be.
‘Late Return’ 4.5%
Convivial and perky IPA with a moreish, decadent taste of Indian summer and “Okay then, just one more...” Before you know it, you’ve missed your bus home and it’s next week.
‘Liquid Asset P60’ 4.6%
A refreshingly hydrating, silky lager that’s bursting with citrus zing and energy. So hydrating, in fact, that you’ll need that extra zip to get up to powder your nose every hour.
‘Double Digit’ 10.1%
Light and fragrant craft beer with notes of tropical fruits. Eminently drinkable but extremely potent such that it’s limited to two steins per customer. Aptly named not just because of its alcohol rating but because, after a couple, one finger always looks like two.
‘Accountant’s Delight’ 6.2%
The jewel in the crown and the accountant’s favourite drink to buy for others. Deceptively good with intense malt flavours and almost magical qualities. Just one of these and *everyone around you becomes witty and engaging with oodles of personality. (*Except actuaries. Another reason why accountants love it so much.)
All together now: "Proshhhtt!"
Until next time...
