If there must be a Consolation Prize, let it be Nugget Nectar

Plans had me drinking Weyerbacher's new Fireside Ale in South Philly at Devil's Den. Plans had me drinking G.W.'s Porter from a cask at The Kite and The Key. Funny thing about plans? They sometimes change. Sheesh, I'm starting to sound like this other guy I know. Things happen. Trains are missed. But there's something about dark clouds and silver linings that have a way of working themselves out. See, if you didn't already know, the first-class beer bar, TJs, is directly across the street from the Paoli Train Station, home to the aforementioned 'missed train.' Patty and I rendezvoused at TJs where Tröegs latest incarnation of beer geek favorite, Nugget Nectar, had just been delivered at 5:58pm off the truck to the coolers at the bar. So, what does that mean? It means that at 6:04pm, I was drinking the first delivered retail account's Nugget Nectar in Chester County, PA. Not that I get all bothered by such things. But, on this night of missed opportunities, I'm taking this one for all it's worth. ($12/six pack at TJs, if you're interested.)
