Have You Gotten Your DR9 Yet?

If you haven't yet gone out and grabbed your six-pack of Saint Arnold's Divine Reserve No.9 … why the hell not?!? (If you don't know what DR9 is, see the previous post.)

Seriously, if you're in Texas, get off your damn computer/phone/whatever and run to the nearest quality beer store now and ask for it. (It likely won't actually be out on the shelves.) A perusal of Twitter (search for "#DR9") reveals that beer freaks are scurrying around the state like crazy trying to find it. Panic is starting to set in among those who can't.

It's worth the effort. I'm sampling one over lunch right now, and this might be the best pumpkin beer I've ever had. Yes, even better than Dogfish Head's Punkin. It's glorious. What a great idea to mix an imperial stout with pumpkin. The richness of the stout complements the sweetness of the pumpkin to perfection. I'm hoping this beer never ends. I guess I'd better start saying a prayer to the real Saint Arnold if I want that to happen.
