Chimay Blue is a fantastic beer for celebration. I've never been able to let one sit long enough to age, though.

If he's into DIPAs you should really try to see if you can get a couple bottles of Pliny. I know there's a site that will ship them (for a lot of money) but I don't recall what it is at the moment.

For each of my boys I made a small batch of mead. Enough to bury 6 bottles for each child 3 feet deep behind my storage shed in makeshift vaults.

Made sure to seal the crowns well to avoid finding them rusted in another 18+ years. They've been buried now for 5 years (1st batch) and 3 years (2nd batch).

2nd Hogwash's nomination of Sierra Nevada's "Bigfoot". It even has the year on the cap. One or two six packs in the cellar should cover having a beer to celebrate life's major moments. Not to mention its dam good now.

Boston beer is no longer just Sam and Harpoon. Here is just a taste of what I would celebrate with.

Pretty Things' Baby Tree, Belgian Style Quad


Mystics' Descendant Dark Ale, any of the different barrel aged versions


Backlashes' Declaration, Belgain IPA

For a good and local DIPA try Wachusett Larry. One of my favorites.

I'd go with Rochefort 10 if you can find it. Anytime you drink that beer, it's an instant celebration.

Since everyone is going to offer you their favorites and you will only end up with a list of 100 or so, why not try something more connected to the baby?

Whats the weight?

If the baby weighted 7 pounds 2 ozs, maybe get a 7.2% beer, or one with 72 IBUs. You could head over to any local brewery (Sams, Harpoon, Wachusett, etc) and see if you can get a beer bottled the day they were born...that might be stretching it but you get the point.

I did an 8.3%, 83 IBU summit IPA for my baby boy (8 pounds 3 ounces).

To stick with everyone else...I suggest Firestone Walkers Double Jack or even a 6er of Union Jack. If you can find Jack's Abbey Hoponious Union IPL, go for it...sort of the opposite of a steam beer thats real hoppy. The brewery is in Framingham if that helps
