What are you drinking for Opening Night?

So, it is opening night. We're all going to watch South Carolina despite nobody giving a crap about South Carolina. This is supposed to involve BOOZE!, which I have selected as a user tag. What will be yoru BOOZE! of choice?

They had Dogfish Head Midas Touch on sale for $9.99 at the local store, which is actually a shockingly good price for the nectar that is Midas Touch. So good. Also, it packs a punch if your lucnh was an orange. WHOO!

a steady dose of homework tonight. I have to get it finished up so that I don't have to worry about it on Saturday when I can watch football all day. I might have to put the games on in the background though.

I'll be at a wedding reception this Saturday, unfortunately, and drinking Champagne to toast the bride and groom. At least the reception starts an hour before kickoff. I've already checked with the bar at this particular club, and they'll have at least one TV tuned into the game. And the country club is only 5 minutes from home, so I should be able to leave, take off my suit, see the whole second half in comfort. I think I'll be driving alone and have my wife take a separate car.

New Belgium! Either the Trippel or Red Hoptoberfest. Excited they are in Michigan. Anyone been able to find Sam Adams Fat Jack? Both times I've been to Holiday Market they are sold out.

Spotted Cow is a tourist beer, If you have to drink New Glarus drink their IIPA or Uff-da Bock (if they still make it).  I'd sooner drink anything from Milwaukee Brewing Co. or Lakefront Brewing Co. than anything from New Glarus.

Dogfish head variety 12-pack (not all to be consumed tonight) or some Ommegang Three Philosophers once my roller hockey game finishes up. So goddamn excited for some football!

I'm starting with a 22oz bottle of Southern Tier PumKING. After that, it's a selection of various other pumpkin brews. I love this time of year. Probably end it with a 22oz bottle Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin.

I love World of Beer Altamonte Springs and World of Beer Orlando !!!

New Belgium 1554 Enlightened Black Ale.

Now if someone wants to brew up some 1997 Enlightened Maize and Blue Lager (some sort of late summer or fall seasonal with a touch of blueberry, maybe) or some such, I'd be all over that...  As long as it's not Wild Blue.  That crap is, well, crap.  I've had some quality berry craft brews and they're awesome when done well.
