This beer in winter is like tasting an Andrew Wyeth
painting. I was not able to have my scotch or
wine tonight, but the fact that there are beers
like this available in a US. gas station
on Christmas Day gives me hope that
we are actually progressing
as a society. The economy can collapse,
the culture can deteriorate, society can
become broken down, but there are brewers,
like medieval monks in California brewing
craft beers that are like a spiritual
exercise, like vespers, or an ode to lost
humanity.
