Wishful thinking beer



I just bought a case of Goose Island beer. Where the bottle at right says "Christmas Ale", this says "Mild Winter", so it reads "Mild Winter Chicago".

This turns out not to be prophetic; this might be a mild ale sold in the winter, but it's not a mild winter in Chicago this year, including -17 temperatures with -35 wind chills last week, when our old furnace couldn't keep up.

I note that in the list of beers Goose Island brews, this beer isn't even listed -- as if they don't want to admit they may have jinxed us
