Enjoyed the last Magic Hat Roxy Rolles tonight after a cold ride home from work. Smooth drinking, delicious. Shame it’s a seasonal, I could drink more. Discovered this “hoppy amber ale” sometime before Christmas at Total Wine in Ghent. Bought one 6-pack and went back the next day and bought the remaining case. After Christmas, Total Wine was out, but I found another case at Gene Walters. Wish I could find more.
My cousin Ryan, from Maine, turned me on to Vermont’s Magic Hat Brewing Co. a couple of years ago, particualrly its Blind Faith pale ale. Magic Hat recently started distributing down in Virginia, but I can’t find Blind Faith. Not much on their popular No. 9 – too sweet.
Magic Hat puts little sayings and witticisms in their bottle caps. Interestingly, the cap from the last bottle said: “Break the Cage of the Digital Age.”
Reminded me of the Second Life satire site I learned about today: www.getafirstlife.com. Check it out. It’s hilarious.
