We’re not the type of people who need a reason to drink. If we’re breathing, that’s reason enough. But for those who need more, here you go:

1. 2013 – Time to say goodbye to 2012, which means friends, booze and whatever antics may ensue at your NYE party.

2. Winter Weather – The temperature has dropped and the snow has started to fall. You are going to need a few cocktails after you finishing all that shoveling.

3. Discounts – Now that the money-sucking holidays are over everything will be on sale. Here’s to hoping drinks will be 50 percent off.

4. Ski Season – The resorts are open which means you can reward yourself with a beer after you hit the slopes. Even if you don’t ski be sure to tag along, bartenders don’t discriminate when spiking the hot chocolate.

5. New Years Resolutions – With New Year comes a clean slate. Don’t worry, we won’t be giving up drinking.
