"What a wonderful thing is the mail, capable of conveying across
continents a warm human hand-clasp."
We received a little piece of home via a care package today. On our doorstep was some "Pumpkinhead" (Pumpkin Beer) from the Shipyard Brewing Company today. This came at the perfect time. Though we've been enjoying ourselves around DC, the coming fall has made me a bit homesick for the staples I've come to know: Red Sox games, crisp mornings and this local seasonal beverage among other things.
Thanks mom! Only the best mom in the world would individually wrap each beer in bubble-wrap and then place them all in a ton of Styrofoam peanuts, ensuring that not even one "trooper" was lost during the journey.
If you haven't tried this yet, I highly recommend it. After testing numerous "pumpkin" beers extensively, this is the top for me. It don't get much better on a chilly night on the porch.
