Lost Abbey Bottleshare 11/24-Ultimate Box Set Release

Discussion in 'Pacific' started by HaveUSeenMyCellar, Nov 16, 2012.

  1. Just pointing out there's a record of 3-4 infections over the past 2ish years. I'm not suggesting any specifics of how the infection happened, just stating it's happened a significant number of times. So, it gives me hesitation when buying any bottles. I won't buy BA beers from Alpine anymore for the same reason.
  2. i don't blame you. i've said for years that if you (general you) are uncomfortable with the risk of lost abbey's barrel aged beers, you shouldn't buy them. what's difficult is that a lot of people continue to buy them and then complain.

    with anyone's barrel-aged beer, you run the risk of infection. it's just a gamble one must accept.

  3. I think it takes awhile to get over being a fanboy or fangirl. I used to be a big Apple fan, and I've learned the error of my ways.

  4. i'm not sure what you mean. i'm still a lost abbey fanboy. i think people have mistaken my common-sense suggestions like "don't buy them if you don't like them" or pointing out the double standards against other breweries with qc problems (hair of the dog) for white-knighting.

    Just drink 'em frosh!

    I stopped buying bottles for aging, whenever a good beer comes out, I enjoy it on the spot. This saves me a ton of cash each year, no need to worry about bottles thus no chasing beer etc... As these breweries get bigger they're making more beer and it ends up on tap more often. "Let go Luke, use the force...."

  7. Recently heard from a Stone source that it was an old Lost Abbey bottling line that is now located at Stone. BA IRS infection was Stone's fault in that particular case.
