Add another beer to the apocalypse list

After Wednesday's Dish column ran with RateBeer's list of great brews for the end of the world, a reader wrote in with another suggestion.

He wrote in an email that he was recently at Kroger Marketplace (5725 Coventry Lane) and purchased a bottle of Stevens Point Brewery 2012 Black Ale. From the beer's website:

Thousands of years ago the ancient Mayans of Central America developed a "Long-Count" round calendar that ends ominously on December 21, 2012. Some predict this symbolizes the end of time as we know it. Inspired by this mystery, we offer Point 2012 Black Ale to help contemplate this "end of time" or perhaps a "new beginning." Dark rich roasty and complex, Point 2012 Black Ale is hand-crafted with Pale, Munich and Roasted Malts with Cluster, Saaz and Cascade hops for the robust flavor and finish. Enjoy -- while there's still time.

If you have any other end-of-the-world beer suggestions, leave a comment!
