    Batch 1 anything is better than all that comes after! Just kidding... But seriously.

    I really liked 1999 3F Oude Geuze.

    Tarnation from Portsmouth Brewing. Start with Kate the Great, let the Alchemist hop the snot out of it, then mellow it out with lactic fermentation (is "milk-stouting" a word?). Slurp.

  6. The original Pete's Wicked Ale. Also Rapscallion Premier (the one with the devil woman on the label). Lastly, Jinx by Magic Hat.

  7. I would say +1 to this but that would mean that it won't be made again. I can't think that way. It WILL be made again. It WILL be made again. It WILL.

    If I start a thread in Beer Releases saying that it is coming back I wonder if it will happen.

    Sierra Nevada Wheat. What a great summer beer. They replaced it with Kellerweis, which sucked.

    I never got any Dayman when it was released. I've since infused some RuinTen with coffee beans & was amazed by the combination of an IPA & coffee. I can only imagine what it would have been like.

    The Sierra Nevada 30th lineup. Imperial Stout, Grand Cru, and Black Barleywine are pristine as hell! I am thankful I have a couple more of the Barelywine and 1 Stout left!

  21. I don't even remember the name of it (it may not have even had one) , but there was a beer at Beachwood BBQs last sourfest two years ago that had been forgotten in the basement of the former owner of a defunct brewery and was brought out just for the event.

    I bought a bunch of that southern tier oat a while ago a local total wine had marked down to $2/bottle! Shortly after, they announced it was being discontinued. I bet that store regrets doing that now, and i kind of regret drinking most of them before I found out. Only have one or two left
  24. I think I have seen this recently. It may be old. Trade if I find it?

  31. Certain specific vintages & variations of fruit lambic’s & geuze which can never be recreated due to their nature.
    Stuff like fresh Fou’ Foune 2012 edition, 2003 Vintage 3F Oude Geuze, 2008, 3F Schaerbeekse Kriek 2008, what Girardin Black Label used to be like 3 years ago etc.

    Christine Celis owns the trademark again and is going to be first gypsy brewing Celis beers around Austin, eventually building a new brewery here. It'll be back.

  33. Van Steenberge brewery in Belgium has been brewing that beer since the early 2000s using the exact same recipe as the Texan beer.

    It is called Celis White in Belgium, it is exported to North America under the name Ertveld's Wit.

    This is the beer you want: http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/48/10138

    Bourbon County Rare and Vanilla.

    Best vanilla beer ever with the possible exception of vanilla bean dark lord. I was surprised how long the quality of the vanilla flavor lasted but that beer definitely needed to be drank within a year or year and a half. 2 MAX.

    I still got a couple bottles of Fort in the cellar and as far as Raison D'Extra I just opened the only bottle i got to celebrate with my buddy for our first all grain batch of beer but thanks. Fort is a beer to end the night on so good.
