    Hangin at the parent's house. Most of the other family had to celebrate at other families houses, so it's kinda nice and quiet here in Michigan. Just the sounds of my Mom and 11 year old daughter doing crafty crafts in the kitchen while I finish the remaining suds of a Two Hearted Ale. Next up is a Breakfast Stout. Wonderful day!

    Merry BA to all!

    Special thanks goes out to any that I have traded with this year. You were all wonderfully generous!

    Ok gang! Thanks to my friend for the great gifts which are special!


    If you notice the bottle of liqueur, this is the Hitachino Hop liqueur!


    Wow! It was amazing! And does anyone else know if there is such a thing from another brewery?

    I gave him a Hitachino glass, Dogfish Head glass and sticker as well as two pajama pants: one with beer and one with bacon! His girl gave us a gift basket with homemade Kahlua! It is great to have great friends who care!

    Merry Holiday and Christmas to all you fellow BA's!

    That is disappointing! My mother is a fantastic cook. Not chef like with crazy ingredients but she knows how to make a stick to your ribs type meal. With that amount i had on my plate i was full from just that. It is thick and delicious

    Getting on with Orval.

    I have a Tilquan, some celebration, and 2 year old Stone IRS ready to go for this afternoon. Should be a good day!

    Now is the time to enjoy and savor the old reliable St. Bernardus Abt12. At 10% ABV. it is the perfect brew to have before doing the holiday visitations. (Christmas)

    Sweetwater Exodus Porter from the hammock. Now all I have to do is figure out how to hang proper glassware from the ridge line and I'll be set. Merry Florida Christmas

    Last night with friends:

    Crooked Stave W.W.B.Y.
    Bruery Autumn Maple
    Bruery Black Tuesday (2011)

    Started real fresh and clean before dinner, went with AM with dinner and BT with the dessert. Not our usual number of bottles but it was a small group. Beer, food and the friendship was all wonderful. All the best to all for a healthy new year (everything else is gravy).

    Had half a Celebration earlier and now I'm having a Narwhal. Have to head back home in a couple of hours, so that's it for me until I'm safely in my house.

    Happy Xmas everyone.
