The ladies over at the newly redesigned Stouts and Stilettos are promoting an idea dreamed up out of Portland, Maine by Allagash Brewing that is as brilliant as it is simple: #DrinkItNow
The point is to stop waiting for the perfect opportunity to drink that beer you have squirreled away. NOW is the time to drink it.
I have a beer cellar of which I am very proud. It is not the greatest collection of beers collecting dust by any stretch of the imagination but I love them. Many of these beers at this point sometimes feel almost too precious to drink on just a lazy Sunday afternoon. But that is wrong.
What a better time than now to crack one open as we fight off the doldrums of winter. It is time to celebrate that old beer for no reason other than its great to drink delicious, aged, big beers.
What am I drinking this Sunday? I don’t exactly know yet. That is why I am putting it to a vote. Which of the following beers should I break out for the February 21st #DrinkItNow day?
The three choices:
2013 Old Ruffian Barleywine by Great Divide Brewing Co.
2012 Olde School Barleywine by Dogfish Head
2011 Dark Intrigue (BBA) by Victory Brewing Company
Vote between now and noon of February 21st and the winning beer will be cracked open that evening. Please click on the link immediately below and vote.

I have a 2011 120 Minute, and it didn’t even cross my mind until I saw your post. I was thinking Avery Maharaja. Your vote?
2011 120 would be perfect. I love that beer anytime after 4-5 years, it changes beautifully.
I am personally pulling for the Victory Dark Intrigue to win as it is time. Coming up on five years and I have been dying to crack it open.
In full disclosure there were at least a dozen beers that I was terrified of putting on this list for fear they would win. (e..g 2009 and 2013 Splinter Gold, 2008 DFH Fort, 2010 Cafe Royal, 2000 Millennium by Church Brew Works…)
I have no guts.
