    Heading to a friend's house.....thinking of bringing along some Victory at Sea, maybe some Oak Aged Yeti (either chocolate or espresso), maybe a sour or two (Oude Tart, Liefmans Goudenbach, Rodenbach Grand Cru, ?)......possibly a three year old bottle of Ommegang Abbey Ale. Not sure how that one will be, but opened a three year old bottle of Chimay Red a couple of weeks ago and it was sublime.
  17. Brewery Creek in Vancouver had it . BC is a Cantillon hotbed

    Asked my wife if she wanted sparkling wine and (luckily) she said no, so I got us a 750 of Duvel. It's gonna be a good year!

    a 750mL of Cantillon classic, the rest is up in the air, but I think it`s a good starting point !
  22. Dude, nice. I also picked it up during Oktoberfest in 2011. Cracked it on Christmas Eve, two years old, was drinking amazing.
  23. Ok, I'll play. I'm thinking of a 750 of Duvel Triple Hop, never had it, and I love Duvel on New Year's.

    After that not sure, maybe a gueuze, but definitely plenty of something sessionable like Tetley's (3.6% abv). I don't know half of you guys drink all these high abv rare beers all night long. I need to switch it up if I'm going to make it all night.
  24. I'll be drinking my first ever Pliny the Elder and after that maybe a Schafly Tasmanian, Zombie Dust or a BA Hoppin Frog Boris, Sucaba, or possibly a Backwoods Bastard to name a few of my choices.

  29. Mandark

    Mandark Savant (350) Illinois Apr 8, 2008 Beer Trader

    Stiegl Goldbrau
    Geneva Lakes Brewing Amber
    GI Bourbon County Coffee Stout
    Trader Joe's Providential Golden Style Ale
    Stiegl Double IPA

    This last was not an American-style version, but more like a malty IPA. Not bad, but definitely a more balanced, English-style IPA than the hop-bomb the name suggests. A high price tag for an average tasting beer from a brewery I love.

    cjoc83 Advocate (515) Pennsylvania Jul 31, 2010 Beer Trader

    Depends on what I feel like drinking tomorrow when I pop by the store, but most likely I'll hit up a four-pack of FBS, probably a sixer of Yakima Glory while I'm there (I'll probably only actually have one or two NYE and save the rest for the rest of the week), and I might crack my Sam Adams 13th hour from the cellar.
  35. Azzy

    I think I am going to drink a 3F and see what else is in the cellar that will be nice and different

    Told my friend I was bringing over Alpine Nelson, Ballast Point Double Dorado, Lawson's Jade IPA, and a West Sixth IPA for him. He's Happy Happy Happy. I'm sure he'll something good to share plus he always has homebrew.
