    Another beer I might crack open is Brooklyn Black Chocolate! Always a winner in my book

    Depends on who wins. If Romney wins, I swear I'll pop open my rarest, most tasty beers in celebration. If our current president is re-elected, then I will probably not drink anything...no time for drinking when I need to catch a flight to another country and establish living conditions.

    Already "liked"...but couldn't agree more. Not necessarily "End of Days"... but more like end of the 10th Amendment as we know it. And that Federal Government is gonna be SO HUGE... I'd be surprised if we're even allowed to vote four years from now.

    Actually, after waiting for over an hour already and still having a solid half hour to go, putting a Bourbon County Coffee in the fridge is looking like a great idea!

    Something that tastes good but doesn't live up to all the hype. I vote Dark Lord. Bazinga!

    I figured Double Arrogant Bastard and/or Lukcy Basartd would be appropriate

    It's either La Fin du Monde or Celebration.

    Perhaps something by Sierra Nevada.

    Good enough to drink, inexpensive enough to hurl at the television.

    I voted a week ago and I'm so sick of the election. I'm going to be drinking some SN Celebration, GL Christmas Ale and playing Halo 4. I'll find out who'll be the President in 2013 tomorrow.

    Brown Shugga'...a pun, but probably the truth too. Double Chocolate Stout is also a contender.

    Not in the running: Some beery pun about 47%, vague 5-point plans, etc...

    Haha funny vid.

    Think I'll be starting off with a Nelson today to celebrate the chokehold that I would like to give to a good half of our politicians.

    Cheers!

    Sipping on a Bourbon Barrel aged State Pen porter in honor of the place most politicians belong.

    I will be opening my last bottle of Sierra Nevada XXX Stout. It's what, about 3 years old or close to it right?

    If Romney wins I'm opening a Busch Light. If Obama wins I'm cracking a CBS. I DO NOT want a fucking Busch Light.

    Celebration Ale regardless of who wins. If my guy wins, it's to celebrate the victory. If not, it will be to celebrate the fact that I am still free to vote for whom I want and won't be persecuted for choosing the loser.

    So you'll add insult to injury then?
    I think I'll drink something great regardless: If my man wins, I'll celebrate. If the other guy wins, I'll console myself.

    If Obama wins, I'll be drinking some BCBS as a tribute to the great state of Illinois.

    If Romney wins, I'll have an Arrogant Bastard and with some Backwoods Bastards in support. And yeah, I'll probably drink something too...

    I’m thinking a 2008 Mephistopheles, 2011 Older Viscosity, and an Old Stock of some vintage.

    Went to the polls and I was bummed to not see Abraham Lincoln/Andrew Johnson on my ballot.

    He wrote the most quoted speech in American history, he served in the military as both a Captain and a Private, he pushed the Thirteenth Amendment to The United States Constitution through Congress, and he genuinely took putting a civil war torn America back together to heart.

    (This of course is quickly generalizing what, arguably one of the greatest Americans in history, did as President of The United States.)

    But sadly, I had to pick between a giant douche and a turd sandwich because people like Mr. Lincoln don't seem to exist anymore. :(

    So I guess ill be drinking a Fifty-Fifty Eclipse tonight. Either way the stone rolls folks, nothing is certain.

    Cheers.

    Abraham Lincoln: Fourscore and...
    [looks at his pocket watch]
    Abraham Lincoln: seven minutes ago... we, your forefathers, were brought forth upon a most excellent adventure conceived by our new friends, Bill... and Ted. These two great gentlemen are dedicated to a proposition which was true in my time, just as it's true today. Be excellent to each other. And... PARTY ON, DUDES!

    Haha I was wondering that same thing, maybe just a typing error. I'll see what the deal is when I walk down there later.
