    Surly Coffee Bender for morning fishing.
    Stone Enjoy By 7-4-14 and RuinTen.
    Copious amounts of Surly Furious and Bell's Oarsman and Two Hearted.

    I don't bother opening anything special because there is no way in hell I'll remember it the next day.

    Probably start with a KBS or my last BCBCS.

    Then move on to growlers of whatever I have filled at Beer'd on Thursday. It'll most likely be a DIPA or APA.

    Not sure. I usually just drink whatever I'm in the mood for at the time. I'm pretty stocked up right now after my vacation in FL last week. I've got Sculpin, Jai Alai, Westbrook IPA and White Thai, Uinta Dubhe and Hop Nosh, Maduro, etc. Most likely it will be a lot of IPAs.

    Headed to Raleigh, NC for the 4th, so I'm not sure what I'll be drinking, but hopefully something NC-local that I pick up when I get there.

    Going big for the 4th. Hoping my Pliny that just got shipped out today makes it in time for the holiday weekend. If not, the lineup still isn't looking too shabby. But I'd love to have them all in the same day for comparative purposes....

    And yes, the 4th is getting the top shelf treatment from the fridge, not the ol beer drawer.

    Jai Alai to drink through the BBQ and heat of the day...when I'm feeling no pain later at the close I picked up a growler of Founder's Devil Dancer to put me to sleep comfortably.

    Swap out the Lawsons for some fresh Dreadnaught. Here's a better question though...what will everyone be drinking SATURDAY if the US wins today?? I will definitely go to the cellar for that game.

    Hop Drop n' Roll, since I have a keg that I need to finish. May delve into some Almanac sours, if my palate needs a break.

    I'm going to a couple of cookouts, so nothing too fancy. I haven't actually decided yet, but there's a good chance I'm going to get a case of Summer Love.

    Every year I head up to my aunt's cabin on the lehigh river for fishing, swimming and such. This year, I have decided to hold a mini-beer tasting for the unenlightened in the ways of craft beer. The lineup will include a bunch of old standbys:

    Two Hearted Cans
    Stone Enjoy By
    Daisy Cutter
    Jai Alai
    Founders Porter
    and one of the following:
    Zombie Dust
    Heady Topper

    Looking forward to it.

    I've had a few that have been waiting for a nice long weekend to relax and try. Going to go with Parabola, Bible Belt, and Bomb! along with a sixer of Jai Alai. I'm sure some PBR will sneak in there too.
