No, not the ones from that old song about Sweet Molly Malone.
They were bivalves, as in clams, etc.
I mean the ones that are supposedly connected with--or to-- your heart. As in "'Twill warm the cockles of your heart." Turns out that the origin of the phrase is as murky as the mud in which clams live.
Go here if you want to learn that story (as you should around this festive time.)
But go here if you actually want to warm your cockles once you find them.
Because This Friday is the Sam Adams Tap Takeover, also featuring the Cabo Wabo Tequila Girls, as well as tapping this years Great Lakes Winters Ale, Yards General Washington Tavern Porter and Sam Adams Merry Maker.
(Nee Merry Mischief...)
If you're into beer, as you should be if you're reading this, the three beers should be enticing enough.
But the Cabo Wabo Tequila Girls might also pique your curiosity.
Or warm your cockles, like they seem to be doing to Sammy Hagar in the picture at left.
It's all happening this Friday, December 20 at The Office in Bridgewater, NJ.
See you there!
Bring your cockles.
