    Earlier this year I attended a party for the 25th Anniversary of Brooklyn Brewery. One of the beers on tap was called "Hot/Hotter" and I thought it was one of the best beers I've ever drank.


    "A hop drying comparison done for the Hop Quality Group, Hot/Hotter is two variations on the same Pale Ale. Hot is dry-hopped with Citra hops kilned at 130°F, and has a rounded, full aroma and the bitterness is smooth. Hotter is dry-hopped with Citra hops kilned at 150°F, and has a sharper hop aroma and a slightly more aggressive bitterness."

    Unfortunately for me, I only got to drink a single pint of the stuff. When I went back for another the keg was kicked.

    Any beers you guys like that will never be available again?

    Southern Tier Oat, Damn tasty brew.

    I don't believe Stone is releasing the Imperial Mint Chocolate Stout again - that was one of my favorite releases this past year

  5. I believe Thirsty Dog Wulvers is listed as a one time limited release for this year, but I would be a very happy camper if they put that out every winter.

    I've had the same experience many a time with beers at La Cumbre and Marble Brewery in Albuquerque, NM. Earlier this year, for Albuquerque Beer Week the two breweries got together with other locals Nexus, Turtle Mountain and Il Vicino, to produce the 505-2013 (a play on our area code). This beer was a beast of a DIPA that was perfectly balanced and smooth as all hell, meaning I drank far too many before I realized how damn potent they were. Unfortunately, each year they brew a different beer, so I'll never see this again.

    La Cumbre does this with a lot of their beers sadly. They made a great beer a few months back called Simcoe's Daughter using Mosaic hops and it was superb. Probably won't be around again. So many LC beers deserve to be canned and/or bottled and but currently only the Elevated IPA gets this treatment (though word is the Hefeweizen will soon be canned).

    Original Recipe Heart of Darkness stout from Magic Hat.
  14. I'd love for Founders to brew CBS and Nemesis again. CBS was terrific and I never got to try Nemesis.

    Another one that most of you have never heard of is BBC's Bourbon Barrel Big Brown. That stuff was darn tasty.

    Of course, I have to also ask for Thomas Hardy's Ale. Never had it and would love to try it.

    Oh, and I had Parabajava at Firestone Walker a week and a half ago and probably will never have that gem again. Damn.

    Oh. My. Goodness. These both sound delicious. Now I'm really sad that I found out about them in a thread about beers no longer being brewed. However, I checked out the DFH website. Apparently they still sometimes make Fort? There's hope!

    Without ever having had Rare, I know I like it, and I also know that GI has said they will never brew it again.
  26. From New Belgium? They just re-released that on Friday I believe.

  32. Blushing Monk. I fell in love the first time around and it was widely available for months everywhere i went. Once gone, I hounded the Founders Owner & the Blushing Monk brainchild eveywhere I saw them, often calling it's name out from a distance, in different costume, like Marty Feldman in Yellowbeard. Finally it was released again in the Magnum Bottle Series (and I take full credit for it's re-release) but I'm afraid I will never see it again.

    Everytime I go to FFF or Founders I know I will have a one-off beer that will never be brewed again. I have accepted that fate.

    Stone 13th Anniversary. Man I loved that. I emailed Stone and asked if there was any hope it would be brought into the regular line up like SSR was and they said no. Makes me kinda sad thinking about how good that was knowing I'll never have it again.
