The Army of Dachshunds is packed and ready to flee the scene if we start taking on water. If there's one thing a dachshund doesn't like, it's rain.
I'm drinking a Rooney's Old Irish Style ale from the Pennsylvania Brewing Company. It's in honor of my friends in Pittsburgh who may see one heck of a nor'easter while we get swept out to sea thanks to Hurricane Sandy.
Sidebar: Has anyone else become irritated with the reporting of a 50-year storm every year? Isn't the definition of a 50-year storm one of such intensity that it's experienced only once every 50 years? At this rate, we're good for a couple of centuries.
The Rooney's poured a hazy dark brown with a light beige and thin head. It had a light nuttiness in the nose. That light nuttiness carried through to the flavor and accompanied a healthy dose of delicious malt. It was very easy to drink and had a nice, crisp finish. This is a good beer.
