GQ might just be my favorite magazine, and when the November issue found its way to me via a maze of forwarding addresses, I was very pleased to find the incredible January Jones of Mad Men on the cover. This pleasure was upgraded to a full-fledged mutiny when I found that her story was chock full of fine beverage awesomeness.
