One thing I look forward to in January is the availability of Bell's Hopslam. I first "experienced" Hopslam with Eric several years ago. It was only the next day, with throbbing headaches and difficulty in keeping both eyes open at the same time, that we learned that wonderful hoppy beer had an ABV of 10%! Yeah, it was like drinking a bottle of wine. But boy, is it good. To this day we still laugh about that, and on occasion cry too.
Now that we are older...by a couple years...we know to take Hopslam in moderation, and with the price of hops that's a good thing because buying a six pack is like buying a case of Boone's Farm. Not that I have any idea what it is like to buy a case of Boone's Farm mind you. Honestly, no clue.
