    Going to do homebrews - have a saison from @SebD I've been looking forward to trying, a particularly nasty spruce ale I found in the cellar a couple of weeks back, and some kriek I make in 2010 that I recovered from the spiders today. Then I think I'll hit my Jester King stash. Cheers!

    Not sure yet.Depending on what the mood strikes for.
    Have Sculpin on tap along with SA Summer Ale (for drinking out in the heat while working in the yard)
    Then maybe some Carton Boat beer in the late afternoon.
    Then whatever I pull out of the fridge..

    I'll be spending the 4th in "The Oldest Summer Resort in America," as Wolfeboro, NH likes to bill itself at my cottage on Rust Pond. We've got 28 people coming including six BAs and we'll be drinking:

    1/6 Barrel Stoneface IPA
    Westbrook Gose
    Allagash Neddles
    A Deal With the Devil

    and a ton of other beers being brought by others.

    Now if the weather can just be half decent and not a total washout!

    my lineup will consist of expensive, obscure and impossible to get beers, which will not in any way be Summer Seasonals or Pilseners. Then when friends and family come over I will alternately be offended if they don't want to drink them and annoyed if they try them and either don't finish them or can't articulate any of the fine qualities of my prized ales. Then if any of them vocalize a desire for mainstream BMC beers such as Coors Light or Labatt's Blue I will ridicule them and pontificate about how those aren't really beers. Then after everyone leaves I will be outraged if I find any opened whales with only a few sips gone as I shake my head in disbelief at the fact that most people are fools who have been brainwashed into thinking mass produced light lagers are preferable over my IPAs or Stouts.

    UPDATE: Apparently no one is available to come over Labor Day.
