    Champagne with dinner then I'm going to open a couple of the following: Houblon Chouffe Dobbelen IPA Tripel, Allagash Curieux, Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout and/or Trappistes Rochefort 8/10. Decisions, decisions...

    No beer. Wild Turkey 80 proof and probably champagne. I enjoy having terrible mornings.

    I heard DFH 75 Minute was out in the stores but it goes fast. I'd like to get some of this as I believe that a new year should have a new brew.

    I much prefer the FW over the Dark Lord. But, you know, whales and verticals. ;)

    Vertical 08, 10, 11, and 12. Figure there is no sense in keeping these any longer.

    Hoping my first ever online beer purchase reaches me by then so I can decide between my first ever Breakfast Stout or first ever BCBS.. Or maybe both.

    Whichever IPA is the freshest at my local store. Then again, that's becoming more & more of a normal occurrence for me.

    Was going to be Infinium (yeah yeah I know) but it doesn't seem like they made it this year. So it will be SN Celebration this year.

    A friend and I were going to do a tasting Sat but it fell through so it's looking like New Years. Can't remember what he has but I'm bringing Alpine Nelson, Double Dorado, and Lawson's Jade IPA.

    A couple of pals and I are doing a tasting, which will most likely consist of:
    Stone Vertical Epic '11 and '12
    Jack's Abby Hoponius Union
    Shmaltz Reunion Ale '12
    Heady Topper
    La Fin du Monde / Mystic Day of Doom
    Mystic Three Cranes
    either a Champagne style beer or just actual Champagne in addition! Happy drinking!!!

    I am with you bro. I had a bunch of local growlers on Christmas and I have feeling my buddy Lou Pepe is lonely as a result. I plan on making amends for this oversite on New Years. Lou Pepe will be attending the New Years party I am going to.

    Probably start with a Highland Cold Mountain Winter big boy (1Q) to keep with the season and finish with a couple of my favorite stouts. Founders Breakfast and SA Narwhal!

    It depends on where I go ... I don't know yet.

    If it's to the party I think I'm going to, I'll unfortunately be drinking Bud Light. I'd bring my own, but I don't need some asshole jacking my shit, no sayn brah?

    Sounds like Founder26 and I are lining up a All Stouts Day that day, with these few things thought of so far:
    • BCBCS
    • Abyss
    • BCBS
    • Bitches Brew
    • KBS (Only if I can make myself pull the trigger!)
    • AAAAnnnnndddd...if Founders is open, maybe some VERY fresh FIS!

    One of last year's Infinium (shocker, I know), and once I taste, then immediately drainpour it, I'll crack a DeuS and an Enlightenment Brut to balance my palate out.

    After midnight, may or may not open a Black Tuesday.

    I'm hoping to pop off a nice sour for a toast (either Brute, something from RR or Cantillon), but the rest of the night will probably be cheaper beers since I'm going to a party.
