Beers taken whilst on a long drive. used for 'refreshment'. in this case, refreshment means to bring on accelerated drunkenness.
NB: to count for a road beers long drive, you must be in the car for more than 60 seconds, or 1 minute.
Dan: Let's go for a drive to the corner store. i need some smokes
Warren: shit yeah. i'll bring some road beers.
Dan: dude it's only like a 2 minute drive
Warren: yeah i know, so it qualifies as long enough. and i'll be drunk by the time we get back.
so your on the way to a rage when you realize you dont want to go sober... fresh 30 of natty light in the back, might as well hit the ipod and crack open a few road beers.
mcintyre: yo man got a fresh 30 in the back, natty of course
smitty: yo man im thirsty
