I don't want to play this sick, twisted game.
Short's Cup of Joe is a no brainer for me. I could drink this shit no matter what the season.
Bitburger Premium Pils
I reserve the right to amend my answer in the future, but for right now my answer would be Troegs Nugget Nectar.
PtE on tap at the brewery is simply unbelievable. I don't think I will be in the mood to drink PtE on a daily basis, but it (when fresh) certainly lives up to its hype, imo.
Founders Breakfast Stout
Hop Stoopid... or DFH 75, gotta retry that this week.
Zombie Dust is a good choice. That or New Glarus Moon Man.
Yazoo-Gerst. I simply fell In love with it. Good sessionable ABV, and pairs well with just about everything.
Brandy Barrel Hunahpu. I would take a bath in this shit
Correction, Lagunitas Sucks.
This is hard because I change my mind depending on what mood I'm in. Zombie dust would be at the top of my list.
Heady is a little too high on the ABV/aggressive side to be the sole beer I could consume, so I will have to go with Zombie Dust.
Understood. But the question I posed was for a beer you CAN'T get all the time.
Tired of hearing from everyone who lives across the street from Russian River and Hill Farmstead.
This is always so easy for me, NB Le Terroir. Sour & Hoppy
A constant tap of '96 Iris.
I hate this game, it hurts to think about.
Right now I am in love with Columbus IPA. If I could get it fresh all the time I would always drink it. I am only able to get it 2-3 times a year, by the case.
NG Stone Soup
So, the question is, which beer that I don't have access to, do I want to be the only beer I have access to?
I don't know. Someone send me some Pliny, Heady, Tocobaga, Jal Alai, and Moloko, and maybe I'll have an answer.
In fact, the only answer I think I probably could even give right now is Zombie Dust. Unless we count seasonals? I can't get Nugget Nectar ANYTIME, but when it's in season I always have enough to bathe in.
Would never do it voluntarily... but gun to my head Gumballhead. I would be very very sad.
Tough Question at the moment probably Hoponious Union.
Id be ok with Union Jack, Racer 5 or Lunch.
Wow, I've seen plenty of times that people don't read the OP, but this might be the first time the OP didn't read the OP
(Just pokin' fun, but you didn't say the answer had to be something you can't get all the time )
To answer the question, I'd probably have to go with Heady Topper, and IPAs aren't even my favorite style! I'm usually a malty kind of guy, but there's something about Heady Topper that just floors me each time I drink it.
Just make sure you're getting a lifetime supply of a good batch!
I came here to say HF Abner, but I agree with Juicy....
The Abyss 2008... or any other year...
Something fresh (cask) from Black Sheep in North Yorkshire. I love their Best Bitter (3.8%) and Riggwelter (5.9%), but in terms of something sessionable but with a bit more heft, I might have to shoot the difference and go with their Special Ale (4.4%). I could gladly go into my local (if only I had one) every day for the rest of my life and order a pint or two of Black Sheep Ale, and die a happy man.
As for something reasonably available in the States, I'd go with bottled Riggwelter or Special Ale (SO LONG AS IT WAS FRESH!)...the freshness issue has, sadly, made me swear off buying these on this side of the pond
Combination of drinkability, flavor, and rarity? I'd say Pliny but I'm starting to drink Pliny at least five times a month. Row 2, I've realized, is actually harder to find and it's even more sessionable. And I've only ever seen it on tap.
Seriously, this beer floored me, and I got it through sheer dumb luck and a sweetheart of a trading partner. I couldn't believe how good this stuff was.
I think that is agreed upon as part of this game At least i hope.
Zombie Dust or Knuckle Sandwich
JWLees Vintage Harvest ale. Any vintage, but straight up (not the barrel variants)
Speedway Stout or Double Bastard off the top of my head.
Funky Buddha Maple Bacon Coffee Porter
Something sessionable that i cant get easy, would be blind pig, i enjoy that more the pliny. As far as one beer for rest of life, probily flower power
