    Allagash Curieux...surprisingly 2013 is 15 hours old before I finally open my first beer of the year.

    Nice, I actually had a Celebration, then a glass or two of Papago's Elsie's (from a growlers) Then about half a 750 of Petrus Pale. But that was all last night before midnight. Only had champagne after midnight and didn't drink much as I had to drive.

    My first beer of 2013.



    I like starting 2013 in Arizona with a New Glarus beer.

    Going with a 2012 Cuvee Van De Kaizer Blue from last year. Not counting the PBR I had at the bar last night which technically came after midnight, 2013 started for me after I woke up today ;)

    Poured an 06' Avery Beast and an 11' KBS at the same time.
    The Beast is like a freakin' aged Port. So good and KBS is...well KBS!

    Slept through the new year because of my f'd up work schedule. Got up this morning and the gf and I headed over to haymarket. Had a couple of the angel envy BA stouts and a shot of angel's envy. A good start to the new year.
