Introducing beer to a get together--like a baby shower, graduation party or sunday brunch--where nobody else is drinking and alcohol would be considered completely inappropriate. A beer strike will usually bring intense scorn from those around you' including your girlfriend, parents, inlaws, etc., but is the only thing that will get you through the rest of the event alive.
Gentlemen, the conversation at this baby shower has grown intolerable. I believe it’s time to "call in a beer strike on our position"
