    I always like to save something special from the Holiday season to drink on New Years and I am wondering what everyone is planning to drink this year? I am thinking Thomas Hardy 2003, St Ambroise Barrel Aged Imperial Stout , Fat Tug IPA and some Hawkshead Brodies Prime to start.

    I will be at the grand opening of the Oskar Blues Brewery in Brevard, NC, so whatever they'll be having on tap is what I'll be drinking.

    Gotta have a gueuze, the champagne of Brussels, at midnight. It is likely to be Tilquin or 3F. Probably will be drinking Sucks and some kind of BA Barleywine (such as MoaS) before that.

    Haven't had much thought...

    Any combo of the following

    RR Temptation
    Black OPS
    Dark Horizon
    And I may just get an easily accessible bottle of Allagash Black. Definitely falls into the "gets overlooked cuz my store always has it" category. Been wanting to give it a go.

    My beer buds and I have done four-year verticals of GI BCBS and FFF DL over the past few weeks, so it's gonna feel anticlimactic. I'll likely bring forth a FW XVI, and either a Sucaba or Parabola as well.

    2010 SA Infinium as always... Only two more bottles to go to see if this stinker gets any better with age! LOL! Gotta look thru the cellar after that though. Maybe '08 FFF Behemoth and matching Dark Lord? Who knows!

    Sharing a few beers with my wife. Probably NG Serendipity and Cantillon Fou' Foune. We would drink more but our kids don't seem to care about new years! Gotta be up early to make that oatmeal.
