Default What are you drinking for the holidays?

I picked out a Firestone 14 for one of my holiday celebrations, and I brewed a trippel for my second gathering.

The question is, what will you be enjoying?

I'm savoring the last of my "Connection" IPA and supplementing with commercial swill (shock top and kilt lifter at the moment) while I wait for my bourbon beer to age a bit, and my vanilla porter to bottle condition for new years (I don't actually consider either to be swill but they're nothing compared to home brew).

Old ale and Irish Stout. I also have some wit on hand for the BMC drinking part of the family. Maybe my porter will be ready for New Year's Eve.

As far as commercial beers go, I have a sixer of Péché Mortel and I'll probably hit the single malt with my uncle on Christmas Eve.

I brewed an awesome spiced amber Ale... other than that nothing in the pipeline so lots of store bought stuff... Anyone who has access to River Horse beer... you MUST try the Tripel Horse, it is smooth, strong and so delicious.

To start with a little bit of every beer currently in my forum signature.

Then, I'm gonna hit my local brew pub for pours of St. Bernardus Noel, Ommegang Adoration, Three Floyds Alpha Klaus Christmas Porter and Thirsty Dog 12 Dogs of Christmas Ale. Yum!

I had time to brew several batches from kits and extract recipes this fall and even split a couple to add blueberry extract into half at bottling time so I have a variety to drink.
American Cream Ale
Blueberry American Cream Ale
Red Ale
Blueberry Red Ale
Robust Porter
Spiced Apple Ale (kit plus addition of applesauce in the boil, spiced apple cider in secondary)
Happy Holiday Brew
Blueberry Ale (recipe plus blueberries and blueberry juice)
Black Dog Ale

I'm glad I tried the blueberry extract as an addition but I might not do it again as it changes the mouthfeel in an unpleasant way. The Spiced Apple Ale seemed a little hot but is becoming smoother as it ages a bit.

SN Celebration
Anchor Merry Xmas Happy New Year
DFH Chicory Stout
My dubbel

Unfortunately dual stuck fermentations backed up two of my other brews....talk about terrible odds.
