Readers, I am SPENT. I finished my three-day orientation bonanza today, then caught up on work for 45 minutes, then headed out to join my coworkers for post-orientation happy hour at Dogfish Head Alehouse. I’m not the biggest fan of prolonged social interaction with people I don’t know all that well (see: introvert + shy + socially anxious), but it was a good time. And guess what? My drink of choice totally fit my theme:
I am such an unashamed sucker for pumpkin beer! They’re often not nearly pumpkin-y enough, but I like this one a lot.
S and I also have some of this in our fridge:
This one’s from Flying Dog, and it’s a darker pumpkin ale than most I’ve tried. I dig it.
We’ve also got a few six-packs of this:
Go ahead, laugh all you want. This is the ultimate in seasonal cider! Skip Woodchuck’s pumpkin cider and go straight for this one if you’re in search of a light, sweet, spice-filled autumn beverage. Mmm. I’d grab one right now if I didn’t think it’d put me directly to sleep.
That’s all I’ve got for ya today. I need to rest up—we’re heading out bright and early(ish) tomorrow morning for DC VegFest! The first 1000 attendees receive a sweet bag o’ swag and I WANTS IT!
What’s your seasonal beverage of choice?

Kind of I hate beer, but I did get super happy when I recognized the Ralph Steadman artwork for the Flying Dog pumpkin ale! And that hard cider looks pretty tasty, actually. I might have to try to find some… :)
Flying Dog has some great art! Cool that you recognized it. ;)
And I think the cider would go down easy even for non-beer-drinkers.
