As I tweeted earlier, I made the annual Thanksgiving beverage run after work today. Traffic was brutal; I think I saw something on the order of five accidents, all told. (To be fair, it was misting. Ov vey, the DC people and their issues with the driving and the precipitation…)

Anyway, here’s the list of stuff I picked up. Not all of this is for Thanksgiving and there will be some stuff at Thanksgiving that gets pulled out of the cellar that isn’t on this list — but this was tonight’s haul:

  • Mikeller/Brew Dog Devine Rebel — fantastic barleywine, this is going into the cellar to age for a bit
  • Schlafly Reserve 2008 Barleywine
  • Ommegang Three Philosophers — I really like this Quad/Kriek combo with the turkey
  • Stone/Brew Dog bashah Black Belgian-style Double IPA. Has a bottled on date of 12/19/10. I have beer from the future, people!
  • Tröegs Mad Elf Ale — had a couple of these already this year, it’s pretty tasty
  • Weyerbacher Riserva — Ale with raspberry puree added; aged in Oak. Curious about this one…
  • Southern Tier Old Man Winter ale — already had one of these this year; this one might not last the night…
  • Founders Backwoods Bastard — all the label says is 50 I.B.U/10.2% ABV. It might not see the dawn either

TheWife also wanted some wine:

  • Langmeil Hangin’ Snakes Shiraz-Viognier 2006
  • Bohemian Highway California Merlot 2007
  • Terra Andina Sauvignon Blanc 2008

If I remember, I’ll try to get some tasting notes Thursday and post those as a follow-up…
