Janet's Brown Ale is a good one if you have access to the recipe.
Hahahah. We just had our first in June and I couldn't sleep for about three days solid. The fourth day was iffy. The first week I think I got about 20 hours of sleep total. I had a beer a few hours after the baby came, but unfortunately it wasn't my beer, because I didn't get around to bottling my first batch until the second week after the baby came. We called it Aftasie Ale after our daughter
It gets LOTS and lots better, and just because your schedule is different doesn't mean you can't enjoy some beer with friends
You'll see how it's different and you'll adjust - remember it isn't the end of the world, though it kind of is the end of the world as you know it.
Congats! You're in for an awesome adventure.
Oh yeah, but if you can, definitely nap as much as you can. Spend the week before the baby comes in hibernation if you can
