Signs of Impending Spring

We're in the middle of Winter in Virginia. The whole of the month of February is ahead of us, and this month can bring serious Winter weather. But there are signs around us that the Spring weather is approaching.

Some folks look to Punxsutawney Phil for hope. The groundhog saw no shadow but that doesn't convince me. Yesterday's anomalous temperature of 67° was a taste of thing to come, but it was short lived. For me, the surest sign that we're on the road to Spring is when I see the stacks of Tröegs Nugget Nectar make an appearance at the local beverage store. Sure this beer is released in the midst of Winter, but I've always considered it the first of the Spring beers, rather than the last of the Winter beers.

The only thing that will top the excitement finding this Tröegs seasonal in the store, is when I have poured a glass at home and I am enjoying the aromas and flavors of this hop-rich nectar.
