So we're having out first kid in May and I want to brew a beer to celebrate. Now the question is - what do I brew? I want it to be more "special", but nothing too outlandish. My wife loves hoppy beers, but I made an IPA for our wedding last year, and was thinking of not doing one for this. I'm more of a dark beer person. Black IPA? I don't have the equipment to lager, but does anyone have a good "special occasion" beer they've brewed?

Congrats on the first!! Seeing as you have 6 months I would brew up as many batches as you can before the kid comes so you can give him/her all your free time for the first couple months.. anyways.. a good imperial stout or wee heavy or barley wine is great for births and you have plenty time for one of those..

Milk Stout? (pun intended) No, not breastmilk.

milk stout's pretty funny, but I like the idea

barley wine and wee heavy are also solid ideas

might need to make a few test batches soon, so I can work out any kinks. hmm... where to start...

Our first is due in late April, and I'll be doing a Saison. I chose that style since it will be spring/summer and I'll be able to share it with my BMC friends. Plus, it's one I haven't done before and it's a little different.
