This is why we can’t have nice things. Over the summer I gained an appreciation for nice beers, and it’s doing terrible things for my wallet. My current favorite beer is Victory’s Hop Devil. It’s, as the name sugests, really hoppy, so if you’re into that sort of thing you’ll love it. Ithaca Brewing Company’s Flower Power is good too. It tastes a little like flowers, but not in a perfumery way. It’s more like someone picked a handful of dandelions out of the lawn and threw them in the brew. Somehow, this is a good thing. Trust me.

Also, I’m looking forward to a day months(years?) from now when I can go back in the archives of this comic and be embarrassed at how bad it looks in comparison to the new stuff. Practice makes perfect.
