Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co

USA

Not as spicy as some winter ales, but still a nice touch of Cascade hops, and I thought an orange peel taste. I used this to wash down the bile rising in my throat watching George W's press conference on 4/13/2004 (regarding our progress, or lack thereof, in Iraq), and it was then that my wife and I came up with a drinking game..every time W says "uhh" or "umm" like the slack-jawed yokel he really is, you have to take a drink. Unfortunately, with the large number of "uhh's", coupled with the 6.8% ABV in this ale, I would've been pissed in no time (then again, considering he stumbled through English like a drunk stumbling through a moving train car, I probably would've been pissed drinking Amstel Light, so I thought better of it on a work night).
