Goodbye Hopslam, Goodbye Winter

I love this, but I can't find it anywhere. I even bought new glasses -- brandy snifters! -- because it was served in a snifter the first time I had it. The snifters are in the fruit cellar. The beer, I'm afraid, is gone for the season. There are many things I will miss about winter. Snow, at a certain depth, buries some expectations of the day. It's o.k. not to run, it's o.k. to abandon the laundry (Smartwool can be worn for days!), it's o.k. to work on a poem all day (sunshine inside the house on a February afternoon is almost as glorious as sunshine outside). So I'll miss that about winter. It's a time of year when, even though the days are shorter, they almost feel longer. And, apparently, it's the time of year when you can find Hopslam.
