    Thank you for the correction, you're absolutely right. I was just having the conversation tonight with some beer geek friends regarding Hop Slam and I have it on the brain. I meant to say "Hop Wallop". :oops: (premature ejaculation...:eek: it's coming up to that time of year with alot of great beer realeases...)

    I'm not entirely sure yet. I know I'll have some Celebration, however I don't have anything special lined up. I'll have to see what peaks my interest in bombers this weekend.

    There are plenty of great reasons Ebenezer’s is the number 1 beer bar in the world. First is the owners Chris and Jen run the place like a Swiss watch. I like their attitude and they had great beers of all times. I really like them and for me going to that place is like heaven. I always like to go for places that are special .
    Ocala bars beers.

    I think that my fiance and I have decided that St. Bernardus 12 will be the beer that we will be drinking New Years. Delicious beer and popping the cork at New Years is pretty fun! Cheers

    I think I'm finally going to drink that DFH Fort I've had for who even knows how long. I've been saving it for an occasion where I can share it with a few people and I just keep forgetting about it when the day finally comes.

    Realizing full well this thread may as well be called "Yet another excuse to let everyone know I drink rare beer, I must be cool", I'll play along.

    Only bottle I know for sure I'm opening will be a 2000 old numbskull (crossing my fingers it's going to be good still). From there ill gauge whoever I'm hanging out with and what their mood is like and go from there.
