I was thinking about this the other day:

How many non beer snobs or non-knowing beer purchasers see SNCA in the store and think, "Oh cool, a nice spiced Christmas Ale....I'll pickup a 12 pack for our guests while they are here for Christmas." and then...that lucky Coors drinker finds the SNCA in the fridge or cooler, takes one swig and thinks it is horrible...and those poor eleven other celebration ales never get drank because it is too bitter?

Deep Thoughts...brought to you by Dude on x-mas eve 2008.

My non-beer snob neighbor did just that last year. Good thing I was there to save those soldiers. He told me the other day he won't be buying that "crap in the short stubby bottle" for our Christmas day gathering this year.

I walked across the street and popped him in the nose.
