Not that long ago, I exclaimed my love for Sisyphus, the wonderful barleywine made by Real Ale. It's well worth the $3 or so per bottle, even if it's only 12 ounces. But this past Friday I was drinking with the Seeker and his lovely wife, and he told me that he had been the beneficiary of some extremely good fortune: He went to the store and bought a sixer of Real Ale's Brewhouse Brown, but when he got home, he realized one of the bottles was a Sisyphus!

"Dude," I said. "That's like opening your Willy Wonka chocolate bar and finding the golden ticket inside!"
