    Started off today with a Central Waters BA Reserve Stout, now I'm half way thru my first ever BCBCS. Damn I'm a sucker for BA Bourbon Stouts. Gonna be rough going back to work on Wednesday after 12 days off drinking great brews.

    No pics (sorry), but enjoying some New Glarus Uff Da's that have been sitting for over a year and a half. Seems to be getting even better. Thankfully I have some more left. Hope it comes out again soon so I can let it sit for this long again.

    Then stopped by Crown for a BA bourbon milk chocolate stout.
    Good afternoon!

    Happy New year to all the BA gang!

    Happy New Year bro. Always glad to hear your perspective on things here. As for the haters, fuck em'.

    I'll be drinking Sierra Nevada Pale Ale most of the night. Having some company and making a ridiculous amount of food. Don't want to get too drunk too quick. Might close out the night with White Oak Jai Alai and a barleywine. We'll see where the night takes me.

    Be safe tonight, everyone, and drink some water before you hit the sack.

    Clearing out some odds and ends tonight:

    1) Alpine Duet
    2) Hardywood GBS
    3) Evil Twin/Omnipollo Russian Roulette
    4) Capital Eisphyre (09)
    5) Tyranena Rocky's Revenge
    6) Rough Draft Eraser IPA

    Perhaps some other goodies too. Gotta start 2013 off right, with room in the cellar so I can continue my hoarding activities into the New Year.

    They arrived on Xmas Eve day :)

    Oddly enough, I haven't had a Great Divide beer out of either yet, and I love me some Yeti, Old Ruffian, Hibernation, etc.
