I have a bottle of 2004 Unibroue Terrible. I'm going to crack it early 'cause by midnight I'll be too to enjoy it. What is everyone else drinking?

I'm sure I'll also crack some of my leftover Ginger Chocolate Porter, but that's about all I have left of my HB's that are ready to drink.
Up next: Big Brew Off competition between me and Kaptain Karma as one team, and my two roommates as another--We'll be brewing Pale Ales with specifications on malts, hops, and total yeild to see who's version is better (and to end up with ten total gallons of great beer).
Also up soon: Belgian Dubbel
Primary: Grampa's Woodshed Apple Smoked Porter
Secondary: Zombiefoot California Common, Chocolate Strong Porter
Drinking: Seamus O'Drunkagan Irish Red, Humble Pie Imperial Stout, Capricorn IPA

Whatever ORRELSE has on tap.
May you go marching in three-measure time
Dressed up as asses, drunk to the nines
Swing from the rafters, shouting those songs
Gone unsung for far too long

Man, it's been a long time, but from what I remember, Terrible lived up to its name.

I'll be drinking a lot of "just another golden ale" off tap from my party pig. My girl's parents have done up a great batch of rocky raccoon, and I plan to buy some nice stuff from Total Beverage, the liquor store that used to be a service merchandise.

Of course, I'll probably have a few bloody beers to keep my vitamin intake up (I like mine with V8 and Frank's extra hot sauce).

Of course, if I don't spend 10 bucks on a single bottle, it's just not new years.
Allergy Warning: This post was made by a person who may be nuts

From the store: Nothing right now, how sad
Up Next: Thinking about an amber rye
Secondary: "Not as Pale as Death" pale ale (since april, man I hate bottling.)
In bottles: Lager than Life Beer, Rocky Raccoon Honey Lager, A nameless Imperial Stout (my first AG!)

Yeah, Smoked Porter!!! I can't wait!

For real though--I'll keep the Smoked Porter available for a while, but I'm cutting that off early. i don't want that sucker gone. I told everyone coming to BYOB.

For other stuff--I have the Michelob Celebrator and Bud Private Reserve, and then a good variety of other stuff.

I'm actually thinking of buying a case of High Life or Miller 1855 to drink during the "games". Sounds like we have a nice friendly game of A-hole planned again.
On Tap: Lake Walk Pale Ale -- Eternity (Raspberry Stout) -- Nutrocker -- Donnybrook Dark
Primary: Lake Walk Pale Ale
Secondary: Summit IPA
Up Next: Smoked Porter -- Pub Ale -- Watermelon Wheat

Noooiiiiiiccceee!!! I miss that game. Seems like my buddies always want to gamble now instead of the good 'ol drinking games. What a bunch of GD pantywastes! It's like I'm playing cards with my brothers kids or somethin . . .

I'll probably end up drinking swill on New Years. We usually end up going to a party down at the Elks Lodge - $20 cover and all the food and drink is free. I can drink a LOT of Bud Light for $20.

I'll be drinking Guinness at the club where Black 47 will be jamming in Times Square.
I need to find time to brew more often.

Bitch Creek ESB clone and my APA. Was planning on the chocolate jitters stout, as well, but my buddy hasn't kicked the keg I loaned him yet. I also brought back 3L of tequila from Mexico, so that'll get worked into the rotation at some point...
