Frankincense, Myrrh and Samichlaus

About a year ago, I shamelessly begged for a special beer. Suddenly, out of the blue came a special package in the mail. It was two bottles swaddled safely in bubble wrap and carefully placed upon my porch. Behold, it was two bottles of Samichlaus Bier. Given some recent events, this was no less than a miracle.

You don't just drink a Sami. When indulging, it's more like a date. You put the kid to bed, wear something comfortable, find a friend to share it with and savor the spirit. It's on par with a good port.

And, while you savor your fine drink, you remind yourself of your wealth of good friends and family. Thanks! I owe ya big time.

Wow. As my friend would say, you take in into a room alone and you lock the door.

Looking forward to the report.
