    had a lagunitas Kronic ale before midnight. while i was at work, my lady spent all morning cruisen around looking for lagunitas sucks because I mentioned to her I really wanted a sixer. Four stores later and she didn't wanna come home empty handed so she brought home this instead. I'm greatlful I've got a lady like this, and the Kronic is drinking just fine with me.

    2007 Two Brothers Bare Tree Weiss Wine. I was gifted it earlier this year and it was a very pleasant surprise! A couple of the non-regular beer drinkers at the party loved it and were very sad when it ran out.

    BCBS 2012 was in hand when the clock struck midnight, but can't forget the soldiers that got me there....BCBS 2011, BBPT5 2012, BBPT5 2011, CWBS 2012, CWBS 2011, Grand Cru, Dragons Milk, Curieux and an Angry Birds IPA growler from Haymarket started it all...2013 hurts a lot.

    A 2012 Darkness carried us into the new year then I thought I'd open something I knew no one over had tried and dug out one of my Firestone Walker XV's and man that thing is delicious after a year.

    Brought it in with a Stone 12.12.12 Vertical Epic Ale. I actually really enjoyed it fresh. I may have to grab another bottle and see how she ages.

    Here's to 2013!

    Excellent choice. Got a sweet brewing kit for Christmas, and my first test batch will be a brown ale! Can't wait. Jealous of you right now, man.
