    Any Alchemist beer not named Heady Topper. I don't think they'll ever to get around to brewing anything other than Heady.

    Plus Nor and Walden.

  5. Firestone VXI is a masterpiece. I'm pissed I only bought to cases because I went through a case in a half in 6 weeks...

    It's not a RS only beer but it's not one that was widely distributed. It's primarily for sale at the Bruery and at Bruery Provisions although I've seen it at a few other places here in Orange County. BM me your address and I'll send you a bottle. Not looking for anything back but if you so choose feel free to donate to one of the charities here:

    Consider it a deal. Charity for beer.

    As Stone is right down the street from my home, I am ready to receive if they release... That's on my wish list for sure!

    The only problem I had with the mint chocolate stout was that the mint was too overpowering and instead of a true mint taste, you got an undesired bitter taste. But the chocolate was also quite prominent and was a definite plus. Overall I was disappointed

    Had it at CBC this past year and absolutely loved it.
     
  14. Nor was brewed more than once. I think the recipe was tweaked a little. Those rice solids looked like hell to work with.

  16. That sounds fucking amazing.
     
  17. I can tell you the St. Bernardus 60th Anniversary being a one off sucks :(
     
  18. Wow, did not realize that was no brewed anymore...Excellent brew.
     
  19. Sick beer the Fritz and Ken was...Forgot that one.

    I'm in the reserve society and Otiose is part of the initial package. Trade?
     
  21. Someone just reached out to me about shipping me a bottle.

    I've never done a trade before, I was always kind of put off by them. I suppose there's a first time for everything.
     
  22. Such a great beer. And only $15 for a growler fill!
     
  23. No shit? i still believe its the best example of the "Hoppy Session" i have had. where did you find the recipe?
     
  24. Kern River 5th Anniversary DIPA. Absolutely amazing!

    Not there, but I was able to grab two bottles at stores around the Manchester area. Good stuff.

    You're in luck, they thought so too and decided to make it again. It was released again last month under a different name. Then again Kern's so small and so popular that everything from them might as well be a one off. If you have a job that won't allow you to chase a beer truck you're probably not getting any of it anyway.

  32. Do you mean "The Plunge?" Is that the same beer? I don't even see it listed/reviews for it on this site...

    The 2012 winter ale was the 5th anniversary iipa. The description there is for the previous winter ale. The info came from kern... I think it's still on their Facebook.
     
  38. I enjoyed Stone 15th alot, and if they dont do the Belgo Anise IRS this year, that one. I fucking love the shit out of that beer.

    Hardywood Anniversary Ale was a crazy good Blackberry Stout/ASA. I loved that beer too.

    Cigar City Wild Guava Lychee Sour. They did it for a fruit beer event in 2011 called Fruit in the Room. Spectacular. I was so hoping there would be more on tap at Hunahpu Day last year, but there wasn't.

    Also, CCB The Hills Have Coffee. Basically the Patio Tools/Hillsborough River Stout equivalent to the Cubano Espresso Brown Ale.
