But it's not even September
Yeah. I was supposed to keep this blog about my writing, but...
I was at the liquor store yesterday. I was grabbing some beer for our summer cookout. (For those who live in a state where beer is at the supermarket and liquor is a separate store, that's not how it is in Massachusetts.)
The Pumpkin Ales are out already. There were at least five different microbreweries with Pumpkin Ale on the shelf.
I enjoy Pumpkin Ale. I love autumn when Dunkin Donuts carries pumpkin muffins and pumpkin donuts.
But, come on, summer ain't over yet!
I like most Pumpkin Ales but it is a seasonal special and usually has spices and some brands overdo it. I think I'll note which ones I prefer this time around. I just wish I could buy one of each instead of a six-pack each to find out. And for those who say a six-pack shouldn't be an obstacle--well--spiced ales really aren't for bludgeoning brain cells en masse.
Yeah, I'm a beer snob.
