    This morning I thought it would be a good idea to crack a 2013 Rye on Rye from Boulevard.

    It'll be finishing off the leftover growler of Lost Abbey - Avant Garde from last night. I anticipate my first beer of 2013 will be slightly oxidized.

    Opened a Black Butte XXIV about 20 minutes ago. Incredible beverage. Maybe a bad idea for breakfast though...

    Happy New Year! I'll find out around the time the Rose Bowl kicks off, my friend has a bunch of the different Old Divide Yeti varieties, plus some Arizona beers that his brother got him for Christmas. Cheers!

    Not sure it was either a Blithering Idiot or Left Hand milk stout. Must have been a good night! :)

    Sampled some of my "Reverend Craig" Bourbon Barleywine from the secondary fermenter. Hops are still overpowering everything else, but with another 5-8 months of aging on those toasted oak cubes, this will be one helluva beer.

    [​IMG]The whole bar did a Baudoinia Stout Toast at midnight. Up until that point we were enjoying an awesome vertical of Bourbon County '06 - '12. Much thanks to Anonymous1 for helping me complete this at the last minute.

    Firestone Walker XV was the one that was in my glass at the witching hour. I bought two of them, had one last year on NYE, one this year. My taste has changed significantly in the past year, so i cant accurately compare it. but the one last night was tremendous. just blown away by how it aged.

    My first for the new year, thought I was opening a Red's Rye but it did smell right, guess I should look at the label first...
