I don’t know about you, but today has been the WEIRDEST day I’ve had in a while….one of my co-worker’s face swelled up under her eyes and she looks like she’s just done 9 rounds with Tyson, she ran into my brother’s car in the parking lot, there was a car accident in the street in front of our building between school bus and an ice cream truck and one of my friends just called to ask if I would buy him and his girlfriend a pregnancy test since they’re too embarassed, both live with their respective families and wanted to test at my house, they’ve been dating a month and both suffer from anxiety and OCD……..ugh.
So, in order to survive, I think I need to pick up some beer on the way home…what would you get? Mind you, I’m in Denver, the Napa Valley of beer, and I’m a little bit of a Suds Snob.

@Nona99: we need to be friends….lol Sorry your having such a odd day!
I had some Breckenridge Christmas Ale last night, pretty good stuff.
Have you tried Pyrmids Apricot Ale? I like that too.
Or NB Snow Day.
Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout..its a little thick
I dont know if your near Davidsons in Lone Tree but I think they have some Shipyard Pumpkinhead left….best beer ever.
I got more….

@Nona99: Oh my! What a day! Maybe you can snag some cheap ice cream off the truck in the accident! What kind of beer pairs well with ice cream? Hope tomorrow is a better day!

@Nona99: I like Stella Artois and Peroni. I have no idea what’s available in your area, though.
Sorry to hear you’re having a weird day.
Alcohol will certainly help, doll, there, there …

Something seasonal for sure. I recently had Boulevard Nutcracker, it was okay, not great but not bad. Don’t know if Shiner Holiday Cheer is out yet, thats an oldie but goodie.
I have tried several pumpkin ales and recently tried an exceptionaly good one: Buffalo Bill’s Pumpkin Ale, seriously if you love pumpkin spiced beer, this taste like fresh pumpkin pie!
Also a sucker for the classic Breckenridge vanilla porter around the holidays.

@Kjeff760: I will do a pole dance for some Breckeridge Christmas Ale, in fact I’ve been picking that up for the last couple of weeks, I don’t know if it’s the packaging or the actual ale…it makes me happy inside!
@winterbride1593: I wish that thing had tipped over and just started spewing out ice cream like some iron sided pinata! I would have cancelled the rest of the work day here at the office due to lack of interest and had an ice cream party with the staff instead!
@Sunfire: Stella is one of my ALL time favorites, but only on draft..have you seen the commercial for them with Adrian Brody…be still my heart!
@seabunny: I would get some, but it might seem insensitive to my friend and his newly minted girlfriend if while they’re in my bathroom staring at a plastic stick with piss on it to find out their fate I’m out in the living room munching on some crunchies and slime (Chips and Guac in Nona speak)
@StuporDuck: ….oh…I had forgotten about the Woodchuck….maybe…maybe it’s time we became reacquainted, that portly fellow and I….

Just in case anybody cares, the couple in question chickened out and decided to wait a few more days, personally I think that would be a million times worse, but whatever, you guys do what your going to do, on the beer selection front I decided to abstain, since Mr. 99 is running to the liquor store to surpise me with something nice tonight….I guess I look like I need a little TLC or something.

I’m having a really weird day too. The day started off innocently enough but has gotten strangely worse and now I’m in a really grumpy mood. Keep us posted, hope it’s not too late for the couple in question learn about something called birth control.
