    CBS, Rare, PtY, white oak jai alai, a continued trend of hard to find beers in general that aren't distributed in NJ. Maybe it really is time to move to San Diego, who's coming with me?

    We'll get ya some Parabola. I didn't get heavy heavy into big bottles until this year and was too late on Parabola when it came out. Then one night I stumbled upon a 2011 at a local Diner a few months ago and just drank it recently on my birthday, Great stuff. I think it comes out in May and if you can't get it, I'll search for ya. (There may still be one bottle left at the diner)

    I don't get these people that are listing Pliny the Elder as a beer that they'll never try....it's still in production. That's what the ISO:FT forum is for. It's easy to get.

    I have Westvleteren 12 that I'm willing to trade. I have never had any beers from MN so hit me up. I know I'm fairly new but I'm getting ready for my first trade. I also can get 90 minute IPA. Just finished it this week if you want to try.

    I have never had anything from Three Floyds. I guess I'm missing out from all the reviews.

    CBS and Bourbon County Rare are probably chief among the wants I may never obtain. Some of the top wild ales like Cable Car, Beatification (more likely), and so on probably will not cross my path either

    I'm still holding out that there is a trip to Belgium some day in my future so that I may get a Westy and some good Cantillon among others...
     
  10. Sweet! I just found some Sucaba lying on the shelf at a random store. Might be last year's version, but I'm excited regardless. I'm holding out hope of finding a Parabola. Cheers!

    speedway vanilla coconut. I believe it WAS bottled. There isn't even a pic of it on google images! It's like a fucking unicorn. It WAS reviewed on BA,so some lucky bastards got to imbibe. sounds like my coconut fantasy.

    A good one from BMC. Ha! Seriously, I have always wanted to try DL. There are quite a few. Just a matter of time.
     
  25. Pretty sure Bells doesn't distribute to NY. At least not yet.

    Story time: I never thought I would get my hands on this delicious nectar. One random Wednesday night, I met a group of beer drinkers at a beer tasting hosted by a local brewery at my apartment complex club house. Afterwards, we headed back to their apartment and one of the guys showed me all the beers he had brought down from Illinois during his move. He asked me if I wanted to drink anything he had brought. I said yes and he chose this. Dreams do come true...

    and so how it all doesn't matter,to much out there.Cheers
     
  28. Had a Pliny The Younger today!!! so can cross that off the list!
     
  29. For that matter, we had almost everything on his list at Darkness Day last year. He's from North Saint Paul? No excuse to miss D-Day.
     
  30. Pliny the Younger. I just dont forsee traveling THAT far for a beer - and since they dont bottle or do growlers... But what ever. There are plenty of other really good beers out there that I CAN get.

    I've been wanting to try the abyss for a while now, went into total wine and asked if the had any in stock.
    "We had some a couple days ago, but it sold out pretty quick."
    Depression ensues.......
     
  32. I live out on the east end of Long Island and haven't seen anything along the lines of Pliny and Hopslam. Did you trade for those two?
     
  33. Nothing is impossible. Believe it. (Unless it's some 50 bottle limited wackiness). When I was heavy into trading, I got many beers I never expected to try. Many. And there are so many I didn't even know I should have been hunting for but got (Beekeeper!).

    I think im in the same boat. I have my fingers crossed though, my favorite bottle shop owner just told me hes planning an event where he will be cracking open his bottle of king henry. He owes me one, I basically got Pipeworks to distribute to him and theyve had a beautiful relationship ever since.
