    You didn't say "you CAN'T get it all the time"
    And even though I live close to Surly - technically I even can't get this all the time so it would have to be...


    ...Fresh please

    2011 Bourbon County Stout is a BEAST, but one that offers a challenge I would badly accept day after day.

    I'm fairly calvinistic in my beer beliefs. A good beer should be something special and therefore not so easily available. If you go through some degree of effort to obtain in, then and only then will you savor it as a special treat. This isn't about tasting the "rare", but more about the celebration of the blood, sweat and tears you went through to get it.

    KRBC 5th anniversary IIPA, or what they happened to bottle this year as "winter ale" same thing, but it would have to be fresh, the hops fall off on this beer and turn from my favorite IIPA of all time to a beer thats ok within a couple of weeks, so as long as i could always get it extremly fresh with no more than a week on it this would be my choice

    i would want something sessionable i could drink year round, so i would have to go with NB Shift or some other form of pale ale, possibly an IPA that i can drink during the 100 degree days of spring/summer/fall here in florida.
  16. I'd probably go with Alpine's Keene Idea or Pizza Port's Poor Man's IPA

    I'd probably go with KRBC's CITRA DIPA. I'd also say some nice belgian quad or maybe a imperial stout like Abyss, but I think if I could only have one forever, it would have to be an IPA
  23. Abrasive, maybe white rajah.
  24. I like the shit out of this.

    Figure Eight's Raven Tor, an under the radar oatmeal stout.. Only available on tap and in growler fills from the brewery in Valparaiso, Indiana.

    I agree. I'd like something tasty, fairly light, and drinkable.

    Weihenstephaner Vitus for me!

    Peg's Cantina/Cycle Brewing does a Wine-Barrel aged Stout that is amazing. It doesn't have an official name that I know of, but you only see it at special events. If I could get that bottled and have it on hand year round, I would be a happy man!

    My first inclination was KBS but after reading a bunch of these posts I think I would go with Westy 12.

    I could age it and really have many different beers.

  36. It would have to be either zombie dust or the great bohdi! Both are phenomenol beers.
  37. Fresh hop slam

    "Black Hole Sun" Black Market Brewing Co. It's a RIS. And VERY rare.

    That's a tough one. I have a couple of different ones from different styles:

    Russian River Row 2/Hill 56
    Cantillon Fou' Foune
    FW Parabola
    GI King Henry

    I'd probably have to choose Row 2 though. That would be an easier beer to drink for the rest of my life.
  40. I could live with only Pliny, DRIPA, or Palate Wrecker.
