The perfect case of beer
We stopped by Norm's last night for the usual friday night routine and my was it a fantastic trip. If it wasn't just the holidays I would have thought it was Christmas come early. We put together one of the greatest cases of beer known to mankind: 2 six packs of Bell's Hopslam, 1 six pack of Troegs Nugget Nectar, and 1 six pack of Sierra's new Torpedo IPA. For those not familair with any of the above listed beers, they are a hophead's dream come true. Norm's recieved all three Friday afternoon and we were assured that their stock of all three beers would be gone in a day or two. As if it wasn't sweet enough to construct the perfect case of beer, Norm's had also received a shipment of 22oz. bottles of Stone's Cali-Belgique. At first we were given the bad news, that although Norm's received this shipment on Friday, they had completely sold out of it before we arrived at the store. But through generosity Raul, our buddy who frequently works the Friday night shift, was willing to part with the bottle he had saved for himself in the back b/c he knew how excited we were to try it. Now that's friendship folks. Needless to say it was a great night.
