Election Day Drinking, What's your beer menu for tonight?
 
Alright I'll admit it, I'm a political junky, and tonight is my Superbowl Sunday.

I'll be flipping between Cnn, Msnbc, Cspan, with my little maps, marking off electoral votes and betting with myself on interesting congressional races...(Yeah I'm a geek, and I admit it.)

Since my pipeline is El Sucko right now, it's going to be a commercial beer night.

Right now I'm leaning towards Founder's Centennial IPA to go with the sack of tacos I'm picking up after voting.

I'm not sure if I'm going to stay with the founder's as the evening progresses or switch to something else.

But I know I will be capping the evening off with a snifter of Oaked Arrogant Bastard from Stone...Seems kinda fitting. :D

How about you?

I've got a Chimay Bleu, an Ellezelloise Hercule stout, a Great Divide IPA and a Brew Dog Tokyo lined up. Not sure how late I'll stay up for it, but you gotta love the cabaret of election nights.

Sh*t, bitch...I'm rokkin' a full tap lineup right now. I really seriously gotta bust those kegs outta my fridge so I can pull my oak sack out of the holiday ale, but damn, it's deeeelish!! My beer lineup will probably consist of the Old Douchiewig and the Munich Dunkel/Bock that are recently tapped. Maybe some weizenbock from the other fridge. But damn, this really is a perfect time of year for a strong dunkel.

I think I'd have the most fun hanging with you watch the results come in...I bet the conversation would be quite fun...and your tap lineup sounds amazing

:mug:

Only trouble, I had to get up at 4 today to come into work real early...so I don't know how late I'm going to make it either....

Starting by tapping my Mild that I kegged yesterday (BierMunchers 10 day recipe) then Arrogant Bastard, Levitation, and Smoked Porter from The fine Folks at Stone, then (wife and liver permitting) on to Breckenridge Brewery Oatmeal Stout. If the events last long enough into the evening, It's time to crack another Reindeer Fuel!..just to check progress! ;)

I have an amber in the fridge. I also have a RIS that I may enjoy. Depending on how the night goes I may have a sample of some single barrel bourbon.

Depending on the results it might be a bitter and rye night!

I am considering shopping and looking for beers with a high irony content myself.

Maybe some Avery's "Collaboration Not Litigation Ale" in the spirit of Bi-partisanship.

Maybe some Kenyan Senator Lager, since it was named after Obama wasn't it?

I think for sheer kitsch factor alone...

any other ironic suggestions?

I'll be drinking homebrew: An awesome EPA, an Octoberfest ale (I'll use a different yeast next time), and an APA made with 5# of Vienna and 3oz of Pacific Gem hops; reminds me of biscuits with blackberry jam.

I'll be bottling batch #29 to while away the time as the election results come in.
