10.2% ABV from a stubby bomber The extended Thanksgiving weekend is a time of overindulgence, placation toward people you don’t really like, and ersatz enjoyment.  What I’m saying is, it’s a crash course on all that’s wrong with the television industry’s coverage of sporting events.

Blue Moon Full Moon 5.6% ABV It is well-known how much I really kinda detest Blue Moon–Coors’ hush-hush attempt at […]
