Rockford Red Ale
When I was a kid, I lived near Wilmington, Delaware. I loved (and still do)
any kind of old tower that I could climb to see the world from a little
higher perspective. One such tower was Rockford Tower. It had a marvelous
spiral staircase made of old stone. I used to wind up into the tower in
the dim light and eventually emerge at the top, where the view was, well,
pretty cool! Recently I picked up a beer that I had never tried before. When
I looked at the label, the memories started rushing back to be. The tower
pictured looked strikingly familiar. A few moments later I realized this
was the very tower I used to climb! The beer is mighty tasty too.
Here's the back label, which tells the story of the beer and the tower...
