    Sweet lineups, enjoy! By the way, what year are those Santa's Little Helpers? I ask because I notice that you can actually see Santa on these labels, as opposed to his now normal blacked out image.

    You'd need two wishes. One to live in the midwest and one to have a time machine. Or just trade for it. Not too hard especially for a CA guy.

    I like the mini grill in the background, which I assume is for your son. Santa did it right! Cheers and Merry Christmas.

    I like it...pretty solid. It's a bit peppery and harsh on the palate. I did like Cose Encounter better.

    I couldn't do Close Encounter. The extreme hoppiness made me drain pour it.

    That's part of the Little Tikes Brick Oven Pizza Kitchen. It's kind of awesome. :)

    Now if we can just get the little man to cook breakfast tomorrow we'd be in business. Merry Christmas!

    I think i've found my favorite brews of 2012 (if not, of all time). This & Abyss are the only beers that i have bought multiple bombers of, and drank on a daily basis. Both have opened my eyes to 2 different styles that i plan to dig deeper into and hopefully find a year round brew compatible to these.

    Happy Holidays fellow BAs!

    Amen. Wow, Bramble kicked it up a notch in the year since I last had one. Wonderful balance developed and the raspberry smoothed out allowing everything else to come through. Will enjoy the rest of this.

    What do you use for beer pong? Duvel tulips? Makes it too hard to sink a shot. Solo cups for the win

    Be glad the paper Arby's cup hasn't made an appearance yet.

    Beer Pong? Woah! Although playing that with Duvel tulips would be pretty badass. The paper cups.....fond memories.

    Beer Pong with BCBS.....BRILLIANT!

    I've tried playing with regular pint glasses, the game takes forever since the balls bounce so much

    Plastic cup theory : It's Christmas eve, and people are at their families houses, away from their snifters and tulips.

    Served my mother-in-law and brother-in-law some Founders Breakfast Stout tonight, out of, you guessed it, plastic cups.
