Today I made the bestestestestest discovery -- the local food co-op carries Highland Brewery (made in Asheville) Beers:
Yours truly with a Black Mocha Stout 22oz'er.
I may just survive after all.
ETA: Also? Weaver Street Market and all other places that sell beer? Stout is meant to be drunk at room(ish) temperatures. Stop putting it in the coolers, okay?
