Nope, but went to a party with a 9l once - it's a blast. The novelty photos alone are worth it.
It's almost worth it to see my wife's expression if I rearrange the main fridge to somehow make it fit.
Post them bad boys. What beer was it?
Haven't popped it yet: The St Bernardus Abt Methuselah drew me in last year and it's still staring at me from my dining room through the hole in the box.
Creeps me out.
Pull the trigger on that sum bitch! Then post a video of you drinking it all by yourself in one sitting. That's 8 liters, right?
Only 6 Liters. I think it will make my 3L RR sours look to pitiful to store next to them. The price is pretty nutts.
If you get it, make sure it is a beer you can age and something easy to drink for many people. It's A LOT of beer even thought it may not seem like it. You'll be pouring glasses out of it all night and not everyone will have more than one beer if it has an out of the ordinary flavor profile.
I was thinking of buying a 6l Val dieu triple they have at tw in Orlando, but I just couldn't do it...
Yeah, it's a decent sour but all the 750's I've ever had were filled with floaties which could be a turn off for newer drinkers.
Also from my experience the first half goes really fast, the second half seems to last forever.
i bid on a Meth of Ommegang at the very first BCTC. in hindsight i was too far gone to know better.
i LOVE that bottle. it's big, it's stupid, totally impractical and it's bad ass. i put homebrew in it but you really do want to have a reason to open a massive bottle like that. that is alot of beverage my friend.
that has been my experience with the Methuselah.
edit. i am not sure what is bottled in it at the moment if that gives you any idea of the utility of the bottle. really, you want a reason to own the bottle and not just the beer. i am guessing you could buy the same amount in a small format for less money.
Wait, what beer are you talking about? Last I checked Curieux isn't sour. I'd be skeptical of this bottle, last one I had was a butter-bomb.
does anyone know where empty large bottles could be bought? 3-9L? I'd be interested in putting homebrew in there.
Gosh, it was in the days of yore. Not sure if it was film, but before I had a digital camera. I'm thinking it was St. Feullien, elsewise Tiple Karmeliet. Neither are beers I'd seek out ordinarily, but everything tastes better from a ginormous bottle. Now that I homebrew, I would love to get a hold of some bottles this size.
The one bottle I've had was sour and tart to all hell. I don't care what style they claim to be...
had this recently.
Weird, it's never been sour for me.
Believe they are just doing Dragon's Milk right now. Maybe adding Imperial Mad Hatter down the line?
Although nonsensical. Sicilianos had a 3L for $99.00 while their sixth barrel of Dragon's Milk was $101.00
I saw that up in mass not sure how big but it was huge
lets pour was just featuring a Salmanazar of St Feuillien. I was bummed it was out of my price range . Someday...
3 liters of awesomeness, 80 ish dollars in OC
I saw a Magnum of Avec les bon Voeux at Total Wine, but it was 40 bucks. I'm pretty sure the 750ml bottles aren't 20+, so it doesn't seem to me like an economical way to buy that fantastic saison.
Today I seen a couple of those at Argonaut in Denver for $100 a bottle.
