    Always have a SN Celebration or 2 during the Lions game, NH charkoota rye with dinner and Pumking for dessert. Haven't seen Charkoota on the shelves anywhere, so might substitute with a MS 2011 oak-aged treat and throw in my last founders harvest.

    Figured I'd chime in here. New Belgium Snow Day & Southern Tier 2Xmas during football (Let's Go Cowboys!), 32oz fliptop bottle (original bottling) of DuClaw Repent for dinner time and dessert. Probably some other decent beer family will bring along as well.

    No one I'll be dining with drinks beer, alas. I'll keep it to a glass of whatever red wine is on hand with dinner, plus several glasses of water.

    Then I'll drive home, crawl into the back of my fridge, and not come back out until Sunday night.

    I was able to enjoy a visit to Sonoma County, Ca. with my wife last month and we picked up a Bruery Autumn Maple that was was smuggled back in my luggage, so that will be one of the beers I will open for the gathering at our house, along with a 2011 Saint Arnold Pumpkinator.:slight_smile:

    On Wednesday you can. Pretty sure it's brewery only.

    I'm mainly looking forward to oak horizontal though.

    I have a four pack of Backwoods Bastard lined up and I am hoping none in my party enjoy it. Other than that I have a few Lagunitas IPA's, and will likely go shopping tomorrow for more beer. I was torn, as I am having Thanksgiving with my best friend from grad school, his brand new wife, and my girlfriend, and did not want splurge and bring my autumn maple, pumking, firestone walker DDBA, etc., because I'm not sure any would like. Plus, I have the holiday season to plan with my father and brother, and they appreciate what I have to offer more so than my current crowd. That said, I am in Knoxville and I really do not know my options for purchasing bottles, suggestions welcome.

    A friend just sent me some Zombie Dust, Fat Head Hunter, White Rajah, and Columbus IPA. I have my folks coming in and they brought me some Ipswich Oatmeal Stout.

    Not sure what my choices will be, but know whatever I choice it will be a good choice.

    Unfortunately I'm the only one that will drink beer except I may be able to share a sour with my wife. Also I have to watch my 17 month old son so I can't have too much.

    I'll probably have two of the following: Cherry Adam From the Wood, Fou' Foune, T.R.E.A.T. I will be out of town during Christmas so this will be a good opportunity to have a couple big hitters.

    My local Stone Company Store had a line going around the block, so I busted a U and headed over to my hook-up and was promptly taken care of. I will not stand in line for beer.

    This will be cracked open Thanksgiving night:
