    Gonna pop a FBS when I get off work at 4 today...then it's three and a half days of no working bliss. Probably going to pop a Parabola with our Christmas tamales and of course while watching "A Christmas Story". Cheers all and Merry Christmas!

    I'm treating myself at the local tavern while I'm visiting my parents in PA, Jean Bonnet Tavern. My dad is getting off work in an hour so I figured I would treat myself!

    I'm having a heavy seas winter storm, an Imperial ESB. It's really nice to have a great beer to celebrate the holiday and to warm up to.

    Just finished a bomber of Arrogant Bastard that I started last night and have poured my self a glass of Hop Stoopid.
    For backup I have in the frig: Stone IPA, SN Torpedo, SN Celebration and Hop Devil Ale(Victory). Hope I can make it through Christmas:)

    Another thread talked about looking down on cheap beers, nothing on my list is expensive, but they are all excellent (if you like IPAs).

    First beer of Christmas Eve after a nice workout. Boulevard Single-wide IPA. Will probably be working through the sampler pack with the in-laws.

    while returning bottles an hour ago at my local shop, the cute little girl that works there sees my 2 empties of Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout and says " hey we just tapped a keg of that for growler fills" - Nice! I am currently enjoying a tulip snifter full in front of the fireplace - Cheers!!

    Weyerbacher Insanity first, I really love this stuff. and now my last Peruvian Morning (most definitely infected). Really looking forward to the 2013 PM as 2012 is the first time I had it. I suppose I've had about 8 bottles this year with probably 6 of those notably infected and 2 fairly suspect. Even with a slight tang its still drinkable, but I still want to try a no infection issue batch so I really know you know.

    Not exactly drinking like a meal, but it's getting the job done. Got some surly stuff just in time this morning in a trade. (thanks again @lacoursiere) Gonna open a few of those and probably my twilight of the idols later tonight. Just relaxing now with some Bon Iver...



    Cheers everyone!

    Not that I've ever seen. They are quite local to me, so getting them isn't an issue, but I've never seen them outside of the state at all.

    Damn. Sarah's Bake Sale, Two Front Teeth, and Big Gruesome are my kind of beers! I had the last 2 there on my wants list from description alone, not knowing they were more local only.
