    And you smile because soon you'll be reunited with your best friend.

    You know them as "beer guy"...

    Or girl.

    Because they're here to hand deliver that golden frothy magic...

    BEER.

    And they always know just how you like it...

    Ice cold with a smile.

    Just look for the stud executing the perfect pour without breaking a sweat...

    Or the person impossibly balancing countless beers on their dome.

    They'll find you when you're thirsty.

    Even if you're at a golf event.

    Because they're committed...

    To help you let loose after a long week.

    They know you've earned it.

    So next time remember to smile back and tip a little extra because they deserve it too.
