In preparation for St. Patrick's Day I stopped by my local liquor store yesterday to pick up some beer. This is standard procedure for someone who is not of Irish descent living in America on St. Patty's Day and who am I to fight against tradition (mmmm tradition). What I found was the most magical thing these eyes have ever seen: Rutgers beer!
As a Scarlet Knights alum and life-long fan of beer (well, not life-long, that would be slightly disturbing and would most likely warrant an incredibly late call to DYFS) I was giddy to buy it. The brewery apparently makes a beer for each exit off the Jersey Turnpike and the Rutgers one is called, not surprisingly, Exit 9 Hoppy Scarlet Ale.
