While most are celebrating the return of beer to store shelves, it's a nice thought that you can walk into any store and buy your favorite cold beer nowadays. It's like our state government is finally trusting us all now as grownups instead of constantly seeking to limit our freedoms (on beer at least).

Surely by now, you know that the alcohol difference between most Pre-October 1 beer and Post-October 1 beer is marginal, the addition of craft and small brewery cold selections is what really gets everyone excited. Beer caves across the state will finally look like beer caves. It's a good day to celebrate responsibly.

The real question we should be asking is this... Will Sam's Club start handing out little shot-glass samples along with the food on the weekend? They do in every other state...
