Another sublime pack of four canned pints from Crabtree Brewery in Greeley, Colo. This stuff is sort of like drinking chocolate covered velvet drapes.

Chocolate drapes is where we ended up. No complaints here. Well, one silly gripe: We will be happier when Crabtree starts printing their labels directly on the cans rather than shrink-wrapping them in place—they make funny sounds when we crush them against our foreheads.
