I sit here at work, drinking a beer (I wish) and was pondering on today. I realized it's the sixth of June. Today's the day, two years ago, that we commemmorated the HBT tradition of making the number beers. After much gnashing and wailing, we finally came up with a recipe worthy of such an unholy day as 6/6/6.

I remember my day at work well. I had a highly conservative rightwing fundy sitting right next to me at work. He brought his bible in every day. Damn fool was irritating. Although the temps were in the 100's I dressed the part for the occasion. I slicked my hair back nice and oily, and wore a blood red button up shirt along with black pants and suit jacket. I leered disconcertingly at him all day. I've never seen anyone so uncomfortable about nothing in my life. It was glorious.

So in rememberance of that, here's the Imperial Hellfire we made for that day! I would suggest skipping the oak, many people overoaked it including me.

HA! Thats the funniest thing I've heard in a while! I've got a badass black w/red stitching jacket that the Reverend himself would be proud of I'll have to start wearing it on 6/6/--

I haven't brewed ANY of the 'year' beers here on HBT but I've been itching to do the 777 and I'm definatly in for the 999!!
