This is how easy it is to make me really giddily happy: Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout. It’s at least another month before I’ll get to have any of this season’s batch, but Parker, a saint among bartenders, had some of last year’s batch squirreled away and just cold GAVE it to me, because he knows I like it. Okay, maybe “like” isn’t a strong enough modifier: Cappuccino Stout is very probably my favorite beer ever, I look forward to it all winter long.

Of course it’s all gone already. We drank it on Christmas with some Canadian Breakfast Stout and Pumpking, among other delicious beers. Je ne regrette rien!
