It looks like Ommegeddon outside

Its been a very dark and stormy day and we've been under a perpetual thunderstorm and tornado warning all day. In other words, it looks like the perfect day to drink a bottle of Ommegeddon from Brewery Ommegang. Basically, I dug around in the beer cellar until I found a beer with an ominous sounding name to match the ominous weather outside. I was even able to find my Ommegang glass to drink it with. And if the roof is taken off by a tornado, the best way to save some of my beer at least, is to be drinking it. Ommegeddon is an 8% ABV Belgian-style ale with a dose of Brettanomyces yeast and a blast of dry hopping. The neck label indicates its from Batch #1 brewed in June 2007, so its obviously been in my cellar for almost two years now, but it seems to have held up very well.
