Default 250th

Our town has a 250th anniversary coming up in about 2 years. Just got to thinking about brewing something for that now. I am an IPA kind of guy, and typically don't cellar beers, but for this I will make an exception. I am ready to take some suggestions.
I don't have much experience with really big beers, so let me know what you think would work, and some examples of the type I should make that I could pick up to try.

Thanks

i'm a huge fan of lambics. so if i were going to condition something for that long, it would be a lambic. or maybe an old ale. or a nice cognac barleywine! lol, the world is yours at this point!

+1 on a lambic or some other sour beer assuming you like a good sour. Barleywine would be my second choice for an aged beer. Definitely don't age an IPA for two years...at least not with the expectation that it's going to taste like an IPA.

I thought maybe you'd be wanting to do an historical recipe. Something from that time period. From the 1760's.

A big wood aged RIS, like Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout, would be my suggestion.

I'm with Revvy, man. Try doing some research into what was traditionally brewed in your area during colonial times. That's what I'd do. I'm a history nut, and I love beer. I know that there was a lot of home and public house brewing going on in NE at that time As for styles, I'm not sure but I know that the research alone would be fascinating to me.
