    Bought a DeuS this year for New Year's...pretty hefty price tag but I figured it was a special occasion and wanted my first of the style to be a good one. Besides that one I'll probably down some random beers from my fridge.

  4. Will probably be drinking a Bourbon County Coffee and then probably switching to Carton Brewing's Boat Beer or BDG afterwards. If there's enough people with me, I'll split another bottle of something nice for a midnight toast.

    I'm gonna start off mellow, a few offeringd from Jack's Abbey. Then I think we'll move on to FW Double DBA, followed by Lighthouse's Dark Chocolate Porter. As we get a bit more serious a Rye Wyne Ale from Brau Bros, followed by either BCBCS or Cuir. Probably cap the evening with Melange #3 or Black Tuesday ('11 & '12, side by side).

    We'll see how this evolves, or devolves depending on how many people want to imbibe with me. I really don't want to fly solo on this night.:eek:

  6. if i head to a party as planned it'll be good-not-great stuff... loud, crowded locales don't make the best environments to enjoy one's gems IMO. (especially where other beverages - champagne, martinis, etc - are involved.) if babysitting falls through and i wind up at home, i'm thinking CBS, rochefort 10, and maybe a kiwi rising... possibly a bourbon nightcap, who knows? nice to have options.

    DeuS is a pretty good choice, hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as I did!

    Firestone Walker 16th Anniversary Ale.

    I started the year with the 14th Anniversary, and so far it's been a great year, so gonna stick with the tradition, and start another great year with a great brew.

    I have cellared some Portsmouth Kate the Great that i will be having for the first time this New Years. All reviews i have read and the feedback i have received from people who are well more versed to the "beer game" than i, have told me i won't be dissapointed. Can't wait!

    I had a homebrew / stout party a few weeks ago and heard a good joke:

    What does Miller Lite and having sex in a canoe have in common?

    They are both fucking close to water!

    Not sure what I will end with.
    But I will start with one of these!

  19. The last four New Years Eves I had a flu of some kind and didn't drink much.

    If I stay healthy: La fin du monde or La maudite (or something similar), Port, champagne, sambuca, scotch.
  20. killed off most of the holiday specials so what's left is a Pretty Things Baby Tree quad, Hoppin Frog Frosted Frog, FBS, maybe my Belgian Strong Dark homebrew which is just about ready...
  21. Same for me as well!

    I have a '11Sang Noir I've been yearning to pop, so these two together = success.

    Arcadia Ales Shipwreck Porter. I've had it for about a month so. I'm looking forward to it big time... I might prep with 2010 Stone Barley Wine though. Plus a have a few Founders Breakfast Stout and Dirty Bastard just in case...
  23. Lagunitas Sucks, without a doubt.

  24. Edward, on tap. Then a BA GBS, maybe a Fou Foune?
  25. You know, I haven't even thought about this yet. But my tickle trunk is full of good stuff.

    tabitha Aficionado (100) Illinois Dec 27, 2012

    Definately some Brew Dog Hardcore IPA and then maybe some 3F Alpha king followed by a Double Bastard and we'll finish up with Brewdog Punk IPA....yep, that sounds about right !!!

  29. I think I might be the only willing BA to actually refrain from drinking this day or evening.

    Boulevard Rye-on-Rye is calling my name!
  31. Tough choices in deed... I would skip the BCBCS (for now)... A progression of Houblon --> Curieux --> either of the Rocheforts would be stellar... All rank among my favorites... Cheers...

    Personally, I'm considering a Bruery Fruet...

    Sharing Westy XII and Darkness with my buddy, who happens to be one of the best people on planet Earth. Coudn't dream of a better way to celebrate the New Year.

  33. Something sessionable for most of the evening - Lagunitas Pils or Bell's Winter White. Then I'm looking forward to cracking a 2011 Expedition Stout, Lagunitas Maximus and maybe a Red Thunder if I'm going strong.

    This IPA is so damn good, and so under the radar. I'm glad we get it here in Seattle.

    The BCBS will be consumed on New Years Day. New Years Eve I will have a "Wisconsin Champagne," New Glarus Serendipity.

  38. Will try a 'Westy 12' for the first time ,
    some offering's from Unibroue perhaps (La Terrible , Grand Reserve , ...)
    slip a GUINNESS Draught in there somewhere ,
    some homemade wine(s), good food , good friends = Good Times ,
    Cheers Ba
  39. I have a personal tradition of cracking open a 2-year old Fuller's Vintage Ale. I've been doing it for the last 4 years. This year I will be cracking open the Vintage 2010 bottle. Other than that, I will be visiting a store this weekend to figure out which others ones to try.
