I saw something today at the beer store that made me happy -- actually, I saw a lot of things that made me happy, I was in the beer store. Blue Moon Brewery's Spring Ale "Rising Moon" was on the shelf. Ah, Spring! I didn't buy any though. I can't fool myself. It's not Spring yet. Hell, it's still 3 weeks till pitchers and catchers report for Spring training, and we all know that baseball brings the Spring, just as surely as the Coastal Carolina Fair brings the Winter.
