    They are still around, but sadly they wont be soon enough.

    Its a shame. It was probably the best quality-for-price Barleywine on the market.
  3. Sam Adams Winter Lager. The way it used to taste.
  4. Just had one last night. Tasted good.

    I consider myself pretty lucky to have had access to the original Celis White in grocery stores 20 years ago. God, that was good stuff.
  6. This!!!
  7. One more vote for Rodenbach Alexander.

  13. Bud Light Golden Wheat. I generally am not a big fan of the big three brewers (well, two now), but I did find this beer interesting. Definitely better than anything else offered by Budweiser. It was very drinkable, and had good flavor, and was quite inexpensive.

    If bile-tasting Bud Light lime is still around, why was Golden Wheat discontinued??

    I paid $13 for my bottle and for a beer like that, I'd do it again!

    I would assume so, but it can't hurt to ask if you're ever down there. I was so stoked by their beer list I didn't even think to ask if I could take some home with me. Any other Georgians know if this is a thing?
  18. Pretty much all of the NG Thumbprint beers. I'm glad I stocked up on Wild Sour, I just love that beer!
  19. Excellent! Thanks!

    The former (BB), do not call and ask "how many" they have. Just ask if they have "any left". The guy hates hoarding and would rather lose money.

    At this point I'm left to assume Avery 13 will never be brewed again. It's been 7 years and they haven't revisited the other anniversary beers either.
    Another one I'm certain will never return is Pete's Wicked Maple Porter.

    I recently found out an awesome homebrew company called Neilhouse Brewery from Columbus Ohio shut down. I found a 6 pack of their Cranberry cider in a local shop. I then looked up information on it and found no place that still has any. I was wondering if I have a gem on my hands. A customer I had come in said he's seen this same 6 pack go for $120 plus dollars to Columbus local that loved cider.

    I only had a chance to try the Victory version, and I really loved it.

    I suppose there's a chance they (Victory) could brew it again, but as of now I don't believe there are any plans to do so.

    I'm also not sure if Stone is still brewing it at all (I've never seen it here either way), but I don't believe DFH is.

    The ORIGINAL Black Star golden lager. It's what got me interested in beer back in approx 1995.

    I'm also going to have to go with CCB Moat Water on this one. It's the only beer that I ever called around and chased over multiple counties and multiple weeks. Ended up with 14 bottles in all and drank all but one myself or with friends. I only traded one and wish I hadn't.

    Midnight Sun M! Loved sharing that one bottle I had. Amazing beer! Never see it again I'm sure. Though had I been smart, I would have cashed in on eBay and used some of the funds to help try and re-brew a clone. So since that didn't happen, maybe Midnight Sun wants to brew it again? Call it "M Squared". C'mon! You guys know you want do it again right!? :)

    Not sure they wont brew it again, but its been a few years.
  38. Firestone Walker's 15th Anniversary Ale...possibly the best beer I have ever had.
  39. Side Project Origin. That stuff is TASTY, however, accourding to the label it will never be brewed again
