I might crack a 1554 and a TannenBomb. The Bomb is leftover from last year and getting really smooth.

I got the Chimay 3-pack with chalice glass, as well as a bottle of Duvel. I don't anticipate drinking all four today, but a man likes to have options...

None with dinner as we're going to a non-drinker's home. But I did toss an Ommegang Abbey Ale in the fridge for later.

A single co-worker of mine has to work today, so I invited him over for beer and desserts when he gets off. We have a Port Brewing HOP-15, Stone Kona/Macadamia/Coconut Porter, and a Bad Elf Winter Ale. He's bringing a few Belgians and I'm sure we'll crack one of my homebrews too.

Have you tried the Basha yet? I picked up a couple of bottled but haven't yet tried it.

My family always stocks events with Heineken and SA's Boston Lager (sometimes the winter lager for Christmas) but it's not really based on beer knowledge. I stopped off at BevMo yesterday and picked up some 21A Brew Free or Die IPA and Hell or High Watermelon Wheat. I tried the Wheat yesterday and wasn't fond of it, so I may stick those in the communal ice chest and the IPA's in the fridge.

I let some close friends sample homebrew yesterday at our t-day get together. He really liked the cherry stout and he and his mom both really liked the IPA, even though it still wasn't carbed after 5 to 6 weeks.
