Just wondering what folks have stashed away for Christmas eve and day?

I have an English IPA that will hit 4 weeks in the bottle on Christmas Eve. So that will be the primary drink this year. Although I do have some vodka, dry vermouth and a new jar of olives that might come together into something dirty a few times.

The SWMBO will probably be hitting the red wine, though she likes a beer every now and then.

How bout you?

Planning on having a few buffalo sweat stouts from tall grass and a spiced cider that should be ready for Christmas

My IPA should be carbed up by then. I also have a bottle of 2010 NEBCo Imperial Stout Trooper that wants to see the light of day.

I'll be sharing bottles from several batches which include a malty Blonde, a Sorachi Ace Saison, a Hefeweizen, an ESB/Pale Ale mix, an IIPA, and a Wheat Stout.

Oh yes, and probably some Miller, because that's what my family usually has around.

2012 Surly Darkness, a bunch of homemade wine and homebrew include my Surly Furious and Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat all-grain kits from Northern Brewer. It should be a good Christmas!
