Today was one of those days where everyone who I talked to had an emergency that needed to be solved yesterday. I won't bore you with the details, but let's just say not every emergency was solved, so I'm looking at more fun and games tomorrow. You know what would have helped? Air support. Someone laying down friendly fire so I could buy some time to seek cover. So I went ahead and called in the bombardier.
Not just any bomber, either. I called in THE Bombardier, as in Wells Bombardier, an English bitter from Wells & Young's Brewing Co. This has been a favorite beer of mine for some time, as Teresa's Next Door has carried this by the awesome 500ml bottle since the day they opened. This beer pours a reddish amber in the glass, and you get hit with a rich, malt aroma when you inhale. The taste has peppery notes, with malt and toffee sweetness, and some hop bitterness on the finish. A fantastic session beer, Bombardier is one of my go-to beers, and may find its way to a tailgate this fall when the weather starts to cool. For now? It finds a home in my Top 25. Not the most complex beer, but this isn't a contest to find the most unusual flavors crammed in a glass. Sometimes, the best beers keep it simple and delicious.
Thing to Think About Today:
So, today is February 29th, the extra day in a leap year. Leap year, you say? I had promised earlier in this post that I was calling in air support, so let's go ahead and see what happens when LaVar leaps over the line and the bomb gets dropped in from above:
Death from above, PSU style.
