Def the stone ruination 10. And the 15th Ann. Two best beers I've had to date.
Looking for it where?
Surly Five...but apparently Surly is bringing it back as an annual release this spring
bourbon county vanilla is the first one that comes to mind for me. occasionally i'll make a poor man's bcv by adding a drop of bourbon vanilla to regular bcbs, which isn't bad, but just not the same. honorable mentions to king henry and ruination 10. i see no reason why at least the latter two won't be brewed again...
Allagash Victor Francenstein
Derrick Rose. He could have really changed the game even if he stayed just one more year. Wait, what?
Oh, how sad for you.
There are a few still sitting on a shelf in Colonial in Acton MA. I picked an '09 up there myself on New Year's Eve.
I second this. Amazing beer
Cool, thanks a lot!
More brown than black
A beer that has eluded me on several occasions. Still holding on to hope. Maybe someday.
All of the one-off Bourbon Counties.
Thomas hardy ale
Stone more brown than black..... Great hoppy beer. I think it would sell really well as a regular release
Came here to say this.
I think Stone needs to solo brew the Mint Chocolate Stout. It's a great brew and those collaboration beers are usually one and done. I hope not for this, I've bought about a case of these now for $3.99 a single.
Had a tasting of some of the top rated stouts and rarest and this was still a big hit!
Speaking of Browns... Janet's Brown Ale. Best brown I've ever had. Not thinking Ill have it again and Browns aren't even my bagg, baby.
Goose Island Dominique... What truly peaked me into the world of sours.
There are still Stone 10th Anniversary Ruination bottles sitting around a couple shops here. It's ridiculous, and I feel like having it now it won't really match up to how good it was fresh.
i think it depends on the price of Andes mints on the free market.
Ballast Point / Stone / Kelsey McNair collab, session ale. i had it fresh...holy shit was it good. funny thing, i was on 9th st. at Good Beer a year later and found some bottles... for some reason i bought them, you can imagine how a 4.4% beer taste with a year on it.
There's nothing like walking into a pub and seeing 20-30 ales on cask (and for how expensive everything else is there, some incredible cask ale can be found dirt cheap at the right pubs).
Damn you kalinda why do you have to be so delicious yet so scarce
*pounds ground with clentched fists*
Why, Damn you!
Although the #1 on the label leads me to believe a second (and hopefully third!) brew is on the way. Let's hope it's equally as good
Something I just mentioned in another thread, but I want Firestone to make the mission street anniversary blend 2011 recipe again...
That's not really what Todd Haug indicates: https://twitter.com/surlybrewer/statuses/247781127950069760
only 4 left...i feel so bad for you
It's for sale right now at Bruery Provisions. I saw plenty over my Xmas vacation down there. Maybe post up a thread in the Pacific forum to see if anyone near Orange will snag you a bottle or two.
Stone ba 12th aniversary bitter chocolate RIS. And every other beer they had at the stone total tap takeover.
In Connecticut, which was a total bust, and here in MD. I found a few shops that carry Bruery, but no Otiose
I believe it's reserve society only. Never supposed to hit shelves. Try trading for it. Shouldn't be difficult.
Meh, Im not huge on trading. Thanks for the information though, I didn't know otiose was a RS beer. I suppose a little more in depth research would have told me that though haha
It's confusing because later on twitter someone asks about the release and he says February...course Surly has nothing to say about the matter so we are all left wondering. I'm still being hopeful that its released this spring!
This had a similar flavor, but bigger and better.
Alehouse in Amesbury, MA has it on draft if you need another taste.
I never had the commercial beer but I recently brewed this recipe - tapped the keg last week and it's pretty darn tasty. Mitch Steele said that he tried some at 6 months out an it was still crazy hoppy.
Cigar City's 110K+OT Batch #2 - I.R.I.S.
Stone 12th Ann. Bitter Choc. Oat. Stout
Natty Greene's Oak Aged Farmhouse Sour
For me it is Sierra Nevada's Anniversary Barleywine
Also Stone's Belgo Anise RIS, I love that beer. I know most others will disagree.
Ithaca Dark Humor. It was a Sour Brown fermented with Brett and it was fantastic.
