|Come on in an' feel the clean, Holidays at 66th.|
|Even the local dives leave no doubt of the season|
I see signs 'o the times constantly. I try to ignore but alas, not to be. Closed, see you next year, open again in May, Seasons Greetings, Christmas sales, Winterfest of Lights. I mean really. Hard to overlook. Once my season is over, I don't see the beach much. Dream of it, catch the surf watch during storms, but even now the Hurricanes have passed, and most storms are outta the north, or west. Days are too damn short! Not a Winter Solstice fan at all.
The night's beer was appropriate. New Belgium's Snow Day Winter Ale, an American Black Ale weighing in at 6.2% ABV and 55 IBUs. Pours a deep dark brown, with a hoppy pine nose, tastes of light chocolate and roasted nutty malts. The lacing clings picture perfect left behind following a finger and a half cream colored head. With a silky feel, this beer goes down sooooo smooooth. Nice spot on winter warmer; all ya need is a fire. Giving it a solid A.
