  6. DFH Raison D'Extra immediately springs to mind. Other than that, I can think of discontinued beers that I've never had before but would love to try: CCB Sea Bass, CCB's Collaboration Series ISO:FT, Stone/Cambridge/BrewDog Juxtaposition Black Pilsner to name a few.

    Sierra Nevada Glissade. My review on here doesn't do it justice because I just couldn't appreciate it at the time. I finally came around to the style and found I really enjoyed the SN take on it. Hey Sierra Nevada, maybe you could do an every other year gig between Glissade and Ruthless Rye? One can only hope.

  12. Black Pilsner was even better than I thought it would be. And I only just had two months at my neighborhood brewery that still carries some bottles. I'm not happy that I never got to try that Kona/Stone Macadamia Nut Porter
  13. That's another one.

  16. HC Berger from Ft Collins used to be great back in the day. Their Indego Pale Ale, Chocolate Stout and (cant recall the name) Red were all phenomenal brews.

  19. Berkshire Brewing Company's "Good Night Irene" IPA, issued last year as a benefit beer. I spoke to the brewer once, who said it was basically the same recipe as one he made earlier called "Double Nickel", with slight tweaking as the exact hop bill wasn't available. It got meh reviews here because it said 'West Coast Style IPA" on the label and wasn't as aggressive as some who like that style wanted. Too bad they didn't take it on it's own terms, 'cause it was delicious and I've never tasted another just like it. I drank it almost every day last winter, went through like 5 cases.

  23. GI's Fleur. At ~$7.99 a better Belgian-style ale with great Brett character (but low sourness) couldn't be found. I was worried it would get the axe, and you certainly can't cut things like Matilda or Pere Jacques (both great beers!), but I feel it had more going for it than either Sofie or Pepe Nero...Not that there's anything WRONG w/those, but low-budget (and good!) 'wild' brews are damn hard to find...
