What's everybody drinking for New Year's Eve ???
« on: December 31, 2013, 05:12:53 PM »
The only "homebrew" I have ready tonight is my recent hard cider, which is stellar.  Had my gallbladder removed in the fall and that ordeal cost me a couple months of brewing time. That'll damn sure be remedied in 2014. So in the fridge I also have : Boulevard Tank 7
                                                   SN Celebration
                                                   Dragon's Milk
                                                   Goose Bourbon County
                                                   Chimay Blue
                                                   St Bernardus 12
                                                   Rochefort 10
                                                   Karmeliet Tripel

                                           NOT in fridge:
                                           Knob Creek
                                           Lagavulin 15

                               I usually have at least 2 or 3 of mine on tap on New Year's Eve, but it'll do.

                               Happy New Year everybody !!!!!!!!!!

FWIW the new year starts on a new moon this year.  First time in 19 years.

I'm working and won't get home until just before midnight, so I'll only have time for one. I usually get something special from the cellar on NYE and for the Super Bowl, but it's been a long night and I don't want to waste something if I'm just going to crawl into bed after the fireworks.

I have a 120-minute IPA that's been sitting in the fridge for a little while, so I may kick into that. Or I might finish off the bottle of Kurt's Apple Pie I opened recently. If I'm going to be awake for a while I think I might crack into some Older Viscosity that I've been sitting on for a few years.

I found a DFH Worldwide Stout in the closet that says it was bottled in November, 2008.  I'm gonna have that.

Jealous! One of my all-time faves. I keep meaning to stash some in the cellar, but they never last that long  ;)

We had a couple of nice bottles of wine with appetizers and dinner. Then after some hydration, we had an orange blossom honey balaton cherry mead that I did a while back, it did not suck.

Desert is ice cream with Rumtopf, with some Schramm's mead Statement Reserve. Bottle 15 of 36. I know it will be stellar. I have had some at the Meadery.
