BEER OF THE GAME

It's the last regular season game of the year, so it's time to empty the bench, Little League-style: borrowing an excellent suggestion from Friend of Show Dan Maciejewski, tell me what beer/beverage you're enjoying during the game in a feature we're going to call "HOW I'M VIOLATING THE HONOR CODE TODAY." M'self, I'm having a Lakefront Bock. And you?

Enjoy the game, and bring me home a winner.
