    I should be feeling good soon after that.

    I am going to a party where I don't know the hosts that well, so I am going light so I don't accidentally take a piss in their laundry hamper or something stupid like that.

    Didn't think about this until earlier today. From what I have left that was hoarded for Christmas, yet still remains:

    Aventinus Eisbock
    CrookedStave St.Bretta(spring)
    Ommegang Gnomegang
    Backwoods Bastard
    Founders Imp. Stout (def. finishing the night with this)

    with more Adoration, V@S and/or LuckyBasartd if the need arises. New Year's Day looms...

    I've done both. Either choice will be spectacular, as long as the party is awesome. I like the people and situations to be the main event. The beer should only aide in the process as far as I'm concerned.

    If you're inviting a bunch of BA-holes and money isn't a problem sure throw down. If not, just impress yourself. It's your partay. And FFIW i would gladly a drink torpedo or Lag 6er on any NYE.

    My day will start with a sampling of Weyerbacher's finest, at the brewery. From there I'll probably get a growler filled with something. I have several bottles of SA barrel room bottles (Tetravis, Stony Brook Red, 13th Hour, etc), a few bottles of Cireux, a BA Smashed Pumpkin, and a couple bottles of various Belgian ales to choose from if I don't find anything I like at the local bottle shop. And if all else fails, a local bar has Dogfish Head 120-minute IPA on tap at the moment.
