    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.

    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.
  23. PatriotsRule

    PatriotsRule Aspirant (257) Sep 25, 2012 Massachusetts

    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.
