I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

beer … what else?!!

I purchased this at the LCBO about a week ago, along with 10 bottles of nouveau wines that they just released. Oh, and before I get to the beer story, let me say that it’s a mad rush to get any of these wines. It’s like Cabbage Patch Dolls, or Tickle Me Elmo … but for grown-ups with a hankering for booze. Luckily I went early, but still I had to run around to 3 more stores to track down everything I wanted, and still missed out on one of the Italian offerings that immediately sold out. Ok, now the beer part. I had to ask the employee for it (they didn’t have it displayed on the shelves yet). We walked together to the warehouse area and through the door … and there they were, just behind it actually – how convenient? I saw about half a dozen stacked unopened cases, and she simultaneously started opening the top one and asking me how many bottles I wanted. How many bottles? She obviously was oblivious to its price. I said to her that since each bottle was almost 10 bucks …$9.60 to be precise, that “I’d stick with just one … spank you very much!!” – ok, so I didn’t say that, but you get what I mean. She couldn’t fucking believe it, nor can I even now truthfully. Granted it’s a 650 ml bottle, but still, I mean c’mon give a regular guy, a hard working stiff a fucking break … lol!! I really like experimenting with these high quality beers, so maybe I should just bite my tongue and grin and bear it. All, I need now is a reason to crack it open and drink it … and from what I’ve read, it’s way too much for one person, much too sweet and rich, so it’d be nice to share. Any takers?
