I know it's too early, and it's not ironic, but Avery's Ale to the Chief was brewed specifically to be consumed on Inauguration Day, January 20th 2009.

I have 10 gallons of homebrew awaiting force carbing but haven't gotten my CO2 filled.
So on Sunday I went election night beer shopping.
Saison Dupont
Ommegang Henepin
Ommegang Ommegeddon (never had this before)
St. Bernardus 12 (never had this either)
and then my buddy is bringing over some craft beer (not sure what but I'm really hoping for DFH).

Then I'm making some white bean chicken chili to wash it all down. Should be a fantastic night of voter disenfranchisement, high definition election maps, and of course drinking and eating.

I'm thinking I might crack open a bottle of The Dissident this evening, I haven't tried it yet and it's calling me.

I'll be opening my last bottle of an American wheat I named "Obamale." I'm sure the wheat was grown in Kansas, right?

Well... Lay-offs are fun. So I'll probably hit everything on tap, and then hit the Johnnie Walker!

Yes, I will go beer shopping as soon as swmbo gets home. I took the day off- kiddos weren't feeling well, had a fever yesterday, so I kept them out of preschool. Standing in line at the polls for an hour with sick twin 3 year olds isn't fun! I didn't think there would be that much of a line at opening (7am). Back to the beer:

I put a few bottles of a year-old batch of chocolate stout and 1 oatmeal stout in the fridge. I have a few older bottles of SN celebration ale that I hope have mellowed- it is normally a bit too bitter for me. I think I'll see if I can find a belgian (just to pop a cork) and a sixer of pilsner urqell or chzechvar.

Since it's the beginning of the holidays, I'll probably have a Tannen Bomb or two. If the Dither Bunny doesn't bring me what I wanted, maybe I'll have more.

Sure, but I'll have post it from home.
It's basically Alan's recipe for Adam, then I just cranked it up to a 1.140 OG. It fermented down to 1.020 which gave it a 16.2% ABV. It was brewed beginning of Dec. 07, then fermented over two months, then lagered until beginning of October. It's bottled now, and will try one out on Dec. 6th.

Methinks I would have one and die a happy man.
