So after scrubbing the living he!! out of my MUDDY skinsuit and getting the Ridley in some semblance of looking mostly red & white again, I decided it was time to celebrate. I went deep into the Drumroll beer cave (ok , my downstairs closet) and pulled out a year old Ommegang Biere de Mars. The first sip was all I needed to know this was something else .. oh my, soooo good. Ms. Drumroll noted something was up right away so I offered her a taste .. she says "hmmm, that's pretty good". A moment later she's pulling a glass out of the cupboard so she can have her own.
So lesson learned. When you pull a Biere de Mars out be discrete or you might have to share. Cheers!
