    Opened a Life and Limb 2 that I'd been cellaring. Very nice, but the syrupy taste got to be a little much, so I'm blending it 1:1 with SNPA. Perfection!

    Wife surprised me with Belgian waffles this morning. Belgian themed beers for New Year's Day only seemed appropriate. Cheers!

    Just cracked open a magnum of Our Special Ale from Anchor Brewing (the granddaddy of them all) in preparation for the Rose Bowl.

    Happy New Year. Go Stanford. And in case you missed the Rose Parade* here's audio from The Credibility Gap:

    http://oddlystupid.podomatic.com/player/web/2012-12-04T22_19_46-08_00

    (scroll forward for parade coverage, which starts at about 4:35 - enjoy)

    "You see a fat girl with a baton, you assume she's good, otherwise why would she be in the parade?"

    Started out with Bourbon County Brand Stout, and now I am having Backwoods Bastard. LOVE both of these beers.

    Ha ha ha! Yeah, it was a very entertaining game, but the end was disappointing. Enjoy the great brews celebrating your victory over my big Blue. :) Love this site for the fact we can huddle over some wonderful stuff and still have some enjoyable banter on the side.
    Cheers!

    Not liking it quite as much as I did the first time I had it, but it's good and creates a pretty impressive head.

    About to embark on my first ever BCBS....can't wait. Just smelling this, the aroma is intoxicating. The flavor even more so...sweeter than I anticipated but love it.

    First time trying this. Not very impressed as it is flat with no cabination. No date on the can but I assume that it is past its time. Cheers!!!

    Ommegang Three Philosophers. Leading up to this, I had a Ruination (cherry popper for 2013) then a West Coast IPA. Just made a killer seafood bisque. Gonna go chow now....

    Happy New Year!

    deliberately NOT drinking local today. Instead, drinking one of the best from the retail store:

    It probably was way past its prime. I love Caldera when it's in its prime. I'd recommend retrying it!

    If you people are enthusiastic about drinking right now, you obviously didn't do something right last night.
