    Coming soon to my world is my first Grandchild!
    I brewed a beer to try to coincide with the delivery.
    It's a Red IPA that I'll serve as a celebration Beer. I'l serve it in a spiced, sugar rim glass.
    Thinking about what to call it, my son in law calls me "Pops". My daughter suggested that I build the name around the beer type. So... IPA.
    With pa added at the end became PApa. Then an h added in the beginning became "hi".
    So as a nice welcome to the world, hI PApa was "born".
    I'll have it ready to serve next Tuesday, 1 day before her due date.
    I'm stoked to be a Grandpa!
    Cheers!
    Brian

    Congratulations! Now having kids of my own, I can totally see where having grandkids is a cool thing of its own and looking forward to it too (in 20+ years! :p).

    Congrats, man! Drink one for me! Secret to happy grandchildren is to keep one end wet and the other dry.

    Kind of an old tradition that has mostly fallen by the wayside, not a bad change in tradition though. Without them you will enjoy the grandchildren longer!;)

    I'm with Mentor on this one. As an ex tobacco addict, I don't even want to be around the stuff!
