so i need to tell the story to set this up. this last september, my wife and i found out we were expecting our first child. the day we found out, i went out and bought 2 bottles of dogfish head 120 minute. i put in my kegerator in the back and planned on drinking them with my BIL's the day i brought my new son home. this past thursday at 9:26am, my wife gave birth to my son, jackson douglas thigpen. it was an all natural birth, my wife is a badass!!! so today, my 30th birthday, we got to bring my new son home for the first time. some of the family came over to celebrate. my wife cracked open one of the bottles and poured it and brought it to me just as i was holding jackson. so here is a pic from my most memorable birthday. this has been an experience i won't soon forget. life just doesn't get any better than this!!



by the way, after 10 months of aging, the 120 minute was awesome! just the thing after our great experience!!!
