    Bought a DeuS this year for New Year's...pretty hefty price tag but I figured it was a special occasion and wanted my first of the style to be a good one. Besides that one I'll probably down some random beers from my fridge.

    Will probably be drinking a Bourbon County Coffee and then probably switching to Carton Brewing's Boat Beer or BDG afterwards. If there's enough people with me, I'll split another bottle of something nice for a midnight toast.

    I'm gonna start off mellow, a few offeringd from Jack's Abbey. Then I think we'll move on to FW Double DBA, followed by Lighthouse's Dark Chocolate Porter. As we get a bit more serious a Rye Wyne Ale from Brau Bros, followed by either BCBCS or Cuir. Probably cap the evening with Melange #3 or Black Tuesday ('11 & '12, side by side).

    We'll see how this evolves, or devolves depending on how many people want to imbibe with me. I really don't want to fly solo on this night.:eek:

    if i head to a party as planned it'll be good-not-great stuff... loud, crowded locales don't make the best environments to enjoy one's gems IMO. (especially where other beverages - champagne, martinis, etc - are involved.) if babysitting falls through and i wind up at home, i'm thinking CBS, rochefort 10, and maybe a kiwi rising... possibly a bourbon nightcap, who knows? nice to have options.

    DeuS is a pretty good choice, hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as I did!

    Firestone Walker 16th Anniversary Ale.

    I started the year with the 14th Anniversary, and so far it's been a great year, so gonna stick with the tradition, and start another great year with a great brew.

    I had a homebrew / stout party a few weeks ago and heard a good joke:

    What does Miller Lite and having sex in a canoe have in common?

    They are both fucking close to water!

    The last four New Years Eves I had a flu of some kind and didn't drink much.

    If I stay healthy: La fin du monde or La maudite (or something similar), Port, champagne, sambuca, scotch.

    killed off most of the holiday specials so what's left is a Pretty Things Baby Tree quad, Hoppin Frog Frosted Frog, FBS, maybe my Belgian Strong Dark homebrew which is just about ready...

    I have a '11Sang Noir I've been yearning to pop, so these two together = success.

    Arcadia Ales Shipwreck Porter. I've had it for about a month so. I'm looking forward to it big time... I might prep with 2010 Stone Barley Wine though. Plus a have a few Founders Breakfast Stout and Dirty Bastard just in case...

    Tough choices in deed... I would skip the BCBCS (for now)... A progression of Houblon --> Curieux --> either of the Rocheforts would be stellar... All rank among my favorites... Cheers...

    Personally, I'm considering a Bruery Fruet...

    Something sessionable for most of the evening - Lagunitas Pils or Bell's Winter White. Then I'm looking forward to cracking a 2011 Expedition Stout, Lagunitas Maximus and maybe a Red Thunder if I'm going strong.

    This IPA is so damn good, and so under the radar. I'm glad we get it here in Seattle.

    I have a personal tradition of cracking open a 2-year old Fuller's Vintage Ale. I've been doing it for the last 4 years. This year I will be cracking open the Vintage 2010 bottle. Other than that, I will be visiting a store this weekend to figure out which others ones to try.
