Excluding what you slammed down at the party, what beer are you starting the New Year off with?

I'm going to crack a bottle of Black Panther Imperial Stout.

Ugh....beer...TODAY???? Only if it is made with aspirin.

I didn't slam down anything last night, but did indulge in a nice limited edition oaked IPA and a Double dead guy...Two 750ml high abv bottles do pack a wee bit of a punch.

Later today though, I don't know...I have a fridge fill of mine own beer, plus 3 Belgians, a couple Two Hearted and a Yeti Stout..

Hmm maybe the stout.

Since I was royally hung over all day and night yesterday, I didn't touch a drop. Today will be a different story, though! For the Winter Classic, I have two six packs of Great Lakes IPA. For the rest of the evening, I have a six pack of Dead Guy. I probably won't need them all, but you never can tell.

I wanted to drink my Avery Inauguration Ale, but I forgot it at home.

Hey, David- I stayed up until almost midnight, then crawled into bed with an adorable blue eyed blond that adores me. He even gave me a big kiss and told me he loved me.

(Yep, I partied with my 6-year-old nephew last night. He was way more fun than most other people anyway. Except he kicks in his sleep.)

I LIKE being old.

I'm having a Full Moon right now. Not my favorite, but pickin's was pretty slim in our little hometown Food Lion. Still, I think it's a nicely flavored little ale. Not bad to drink as I prepare some sausage chili. A little for the chili, a little for me...

I'd LOVE to be having my own brew, but alas, with all the recent moving it just hasn't happened. All my brew stuff is still in storage.

On the bright side, we have made considerable progress in clearing space in the woods for a shop...with a dedicated brewing area! For me! All for me!!

Yoop, sounds like you had my kinda New Year's Eve! Ain't nothing better than curling up with a fella who loves you to pieces...
