As always, your musical selection warms my heart. Thrice kicks ass. Cheers!
Just got home from work and finishing wrapping with a FBS. Merry Christmas everyone!
Looking fresh Dan!
Hope all my fellow BAs are having a great Christmas celebration!
After spending a pleasant evening with my in-laws, I arrived home a bit ago and concluded I was thirsty for a tasty beverage. Decided on an '07 OSA from the cellar. Anxious to see how it has held up...

Those visions of sugar plums are getting close!
First Expedition for me...going great with these chocolate-drop cookies my nephew left for Santa
Cheers and Merry Christmas all!

Quite oxidized, unfortunately. Not entirely surprising; still was worth a try, though. On deck is an '09 Doggie Claws..
Brooklyn Black Chocolate. If this was a year-round, it would be my go-to imp stout.

Pyramid Snowcap winter warmer. Merry Christmas all! I'm glad I didn't drink my Goose Island 2009 Christmas brew for the end of the world day!
X-Mas eve treat with a couple new world porters.

Stone Mint Chocokate Stout. Chocolate faded a bit over past 2 months, mint & Stone bitter finish holding still. Happy Holidays!!
Two Brothers Revelry, Blackout Stout and The Devil Made Me Do It. Love the latter 2. Like the first one. Heading up to the Northwoods of WI this week and hope to find some more Devil Made Me Do It.

Another selection from the cellar. 2009 batch. No carbonation present upon pour. Let's see how it goes..
Anchor Brewing Our Christmas Ale 2010 (Magnum)
Most of the folks at the family party we were at were pounding scotch (sigh), so I probably finished about 1L of it by myself. Still amazing.
After church... we hit the Draught House here in Austin and I got...
Jester King El Cedro (Hoppy Cedar-Aged Ale w/ Brettanomyces)
Austin Beerworks Sputnick (w/ growler)
and finally a (512) Bruin cask variant that was aged in rum-soaked wood chips.
DRINK LOCAL, MY FRIENDS!
Some st bernardus Christmas ale of course!
My estranged wife came to visit me, for XMas Eve. Me and her shared a bottle of red wine w/ our gorgeous 20 yr old daughter (back off guys). My 3 yr old grandson angel visited me on Saturday. They brought me a big botlle of Chimay Blue. I can woe and moan all I want about bein' alone, but I had it pretty good. Not a bad Christmas.
Just got off work and enjoying napa smith's hopagedden. Merry Xmas and a hoppy new year
If this isn't the good stuff can I come by and drink with you today!?
My cousin and I split a three liter bottle of Double Bastard last night. Unexpectedly, we finished before dessert, so we iced down a 2009 Black Ops real quick and finished the night with that.
I'm counting the lack of a hangover that I have right now as a Christmas miracle.
