Beer: Ruination IPA
Date: December 5th, 2009
Place: Craft Piano Gild, Boston, MA
It started out as a gross rain, but as the SEC championship game progressed, the rain made up its mind to become something better, something bigger, something that would make kids jump up and down and make adults act like kids and cars slide in a good way, not in a rain way, and that would allow the plows to start singing their scraping songs and the salt move from piles into lanes, and would make Christmas seem closer (and more real) and make lights, even the dimmest lights, feel warmer and cheerier, make the rabbit lined hats move from irony into utility, make sherling lined boots move from basements onto feet, make carols move from our bellies onto the tips of our tongues, no two alike, swirling, enveloping us in four months of bitter cold while none of us are bitter yet, but holly, jolly, red cheeked and chattering teeth welcoming the white.
