    Orval is my go too but at $6.95 a pop this year to drink 1 for each year is going to be pricey.
    should I try to brew a clone? or what?
    yea broke in old age...

    thinking maybe
    4 orval
    1 dupont sasion
    2 rochforts
    1 maybe buying a mail order beer, sadly takes to long to get a westy anymore.

    thoughts, and no I hate Almost all IPA's, but anything else could be good, heck who knows?

    At 70 you're approaching senility (like me), so get 10 Orvals and pour each into 7 glasses. You'll never realize the difference. :stuck_out_tongue:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

    Happy birthday.

    I am really looking forward to being 70 yo and still be able (or medically allowed) to drink beer.

    If you drink 70 beers on your birthday you may not have to worry about next year. :astonished:

    Whatever's handy, the beer isn't the celebration anyway.

    I can't remember what beer I drank for my 70th birthday, but it was good (I think).
    Enjoy your day!

    I just turned 68, my doc said, "two beers a day is ok", so I switched to Lagunitas bombers. Cheers!

    I have a way to go yet since I'm 56 but if I'm lucky enough to be 70 any 15 pack will do

    I'll let you know in eight years...

    ...but chances are it'll be much the same as today (i.e., this year) and yesterday (i.e., past years)...

    I like your choices! I save up my pocket change for a few months for the birthday splurge, cash it in and generally go for the Trappistes. You don't like Chimay? Abt 12?

    Still enjoying a wide variety of craft brews at age 73.

    Probably non-alcoholic by that age, if I live that long.

    never really enjoyed Chimay that much the tripel is ok. yea Abt 12 I would have seen when I go to total wine...I usually have it at lunch time at euro street at beach(birthdays only) they have it on tap.

    I really do not drink that much anymore. Crazy I do not miss it for a few months then wham I get a craving. Sucks when your a care taker. anyway thanks....the memory is the first to go...

    What is the point of living to a nice age like 70 if you have to quit drinking once you get there?

    How about a re-visit of the beer you had for your first beer drinking experience for nostalgia sake? In other words an AAL beer.

    Permit me to suggest Hamm's.

    Cheers!

    You guys are ancient. I will not be 70 until 2022. My guess is I will not be able to keep up with the young folk on BA but I am sure going to keep trying!

    I think it's all that wine you drink that gives you the headache - that and the fact you still can't find the bottle of bourbon !!

    At 73, I still enjoy a variety of brews. Perhaps coffee stouts get the nod. Gotta watch the ABVs though. Anything over 10% I drink sitting on the bed so I am where I will need to be at the last sip.

    The lost bottle of bourbon still remains a mystery. I think my wife drank it.

    We are in the OuterBanks, NC for the week. Gonna go out shortly and get some NC beer.

    I was having cocktails with some doctor friends and asked, "why do you guys tell your patients two drinks a day is ok".

    One of them laughed and said, " 'cause we know damn full well they're gonna double whatever we say".

    Amen. Thinking young can be a gift that lots of young(er) folks sometimes fail to possess.
