Wife had a couple glasses of Mocha Death.

I don't drink on New Year's Eve.

 ???

I know, Denny.  My friends think it's weird too.  But it's just a tradition I initiated years ago when I decided that New Year's Eve was amateur night.  Same deal with St. Pat's Day.  They have become my designated days of rest.

No worries though...I make up for it on the other 363 days.  Including January 1st! ;D

By the way, have a Happy and Healthy New Year!

I had a couple Yellowhammer IPAs on nitro then got into it with a bottle of Booker's. It was delicious. Paired well with the Don Pepin Garcia I found in my stocking. This morning I had a little homemade Irish cream in my coffee, went for a 3 mile run and just finished another Irish coffee with just a wee bit more Irish in it. ;)

Hope everyone has a safe, happy and prosperous New Year!  :D

I pulled out a few homebrews from this year plus a Mission Brewery BBA stout and a three liter bottle of Chimay blue from 2010. I didn't drink it all myself but I sure drank a lot of it.
Heck yeah I blog about homebrewing: Brain Sparging on Brewing but I'm also a lawyer: The Kielich Law Firm

I like it. Not going to do it. But I like it. FWIW I usually stay home or spend it with very close friends with a DD.

Worked

I did that for many years when I worked at the power plant in Orlando.

Now I work for myself.  The boss gave me the night off...   ;)

I went to a friends' house, where they had a growler of Dead Guy ale. So I had a couple of glasses of that.

When I got home, I looked at my vintage ales....and decided to hoard them for another year. A bottle of Piraat ended the night.
