So we're having out first kid in May and I want to brew a beer to celebrate. Now the question is - what do I brew? I want it to be more "special", but nothing too outlandish. My wife loves hoppy beers, but I made an IPA for our wedding last year, and was thinking of not doing one for this. I'm more of a dark beer person. Black IPA? I don't have the equipment to lager, but does anyone have a good "special occasion" beer they've brewed?
