This Is Unacceptable!

With two weeks to go until Labor Day and the unofficial end of summer -- not to mention an entire month before the autumnal equinox and the official end of summer -- the delicious Sam Adams Summer Ale has been replaced in the grocery by the merely decent Sam Octoberfest. As I explained to the guy stocking the beer aisle, I am not okay with this.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! This one of the few signs of the end of summer, but also, buying some summer ale was one of the things "to do" as soon as I returned to the U.S. Curses!

Maybe you can still get it in NoVa. If so, stock up for me.

Did you shake your fist when you typed "curses"? :)

I am now restocking my fridge after being gone for 3 weeks. I have a list: milk, juice, chicken, veggies, fruit, and Sams. I will definitely buy you some.

And, yes, of course I shook my fist. That's how I roll.

Why do they want us to stop drinking our summer beer before the summer is over?

Is it the same reason they want us to buy turtleneck sweaters and wool pencil skirts when it's still a hundred freakin degrees outside?
