Yesterday working on being inducted into the “Hall of Foam” @ the Tap Room under an Optimo Texan, Original West Series. Maintaining my current trend thru Winter I should make the Hall of Foam by May, & hopefully making the Top 25.

First up a couple of Breckinridge Brewing’s Christmas Ales. A holiday season warmer @ 7.1% ABV.

Closing out another TGIFHH for the books is a Great Divide Brewing Co’s Barrel Aged Hibernation Ale @ 11.5% ABV. Aged a min of one yr in whiskey casks (bourbon?) brings a whiskey (wine-like?) flavor up front with nuts & dark fruit (overripe pears & raisins?) & a slightly bitter taste mellows to vanilla & bittersweet chocolate. A seasonal treat when in moderation, I think.

I am envious of your HH's Jack. Looks like a dandy time. Nutcracker, Hibernation and Dalwhinnis sound like excellent pre-Thanksgiving celebrations. Cheers sir.

I am boring again tonight as I have taken a walkabout sipping another Surley Supreme. This has become a regular beer for me. I am comfortable having a regular, but crave other beer options. Ahh, Thanksgiving we are hosting and as such it gives me lots of cooking chores, but potentially opportunities to open a bottle and sample. I enjoy Thanksgiving more than the other winter holidays.

Wearing this old JC Penney fedora and enjoying some apple cider with bacardi and buffalo rock ginger ale (a regional favorite...if you know, you know) while the turkey is in the oven. I've got some JD bottled in bond to enjoy with the apple and pecan pies later.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the U.S. and happy Thursday to all those in other parts of the world

Followed an Ardbeg Wee Beastie with Caol Ila. The Wee Beastie is a little harsh for Etsuko. We added a couple of drops of water which mellowed it a little. The Caol Ila really hit the spot. It seemed less smoky (following the Ardbeg) and had some nice vanilla notes up front - again , most noticeable straight after the Ardbeg.
