The beer will get through

Thursday, I had to walk into work because of this absurd snow storm. Few cars trickled down the roads. I did, however, notice a Coors truck, chained up, making its way to a liquor store.

Then, today, on my way to work, a guy was tromping through the snow - at 9 a.m. - with a box of Coors.

The Post Office likes to talk about its "neither sleet, nor snow" capabilities. But when have you ever seen the shelves barren of beer?

Beer retailing is such a low-margin business that stores need to stay open to turn a profit. So they do.

Shifting gears, Ska Brewing Co.'s Local Series #14, Oak-Aged Orange Cream Stout, is on the shelves. My review is almost complete, but I just haven't had time to post it yet. Suffice it to say for now, it's quite good.

  1. I attempted to cross country ski to Carver's last night for their Haiti fundraiser. Alas I live too far and didn't make it (but had fun skiing around on the most abandoned roads).
