I'm in Beer Heaven today! Fairgrounds Wines & Spirits in Danbury, CT - where they literally have hundreds-upon-hundreds of beers to choose from.

My choice? Guinness Red Harvest Stout - which I've been looking for since it was released and haven't been able to find anyplace else. I should have known to come here first!
