    I'm a fan of the Widmer Brrrbon, and it's easily accessible....

    I have Cherry Adam instead of Regular Adam so I counted that as .5

    Thanks guys. I found a lot of these in a local bottle shop. PM me if you are searching. Also have you guys tried the Deschutes/Hair of the Dog Conflux No. 1 (Collage)? Seems really steep for like 10 bucks a bottle is it really worth it?

    It's a unique, complex beer. Check out the reviews and decide for yourself. One thing I will say if you buy one: don' drink it cold, let it warm up to around room temp for best results. As for the price, it's about the same per ounce as Mother of All Storms. I have 11 bottles left, plan on opening one occasionally over the next few years to see how it develops.

    Hmmm do you think I can still find Mother of All Storms? That intrigues me even more.

    I know what you mean, i just bought this yesterday and i'm only drink the Boulevards and SA, which equals a messily 16 pack. The other 2 are for aging.

    Damn you beautiful 3L 12.12.12!!!

    How many were left when you were there? I was there the other day and grabbed one of the three that were left. I wanted to buy all of them....but couldn't justify spending that much.

    I think there were three or four on the counter. I've already picked up two (WF and Beer Junction), which is one more than I planned to buy... Funny how that keeps happening.

    Haha yeah, I've got that problem as well. I said I'd only buy 2 bottles of the Abyss for myself this year but somehow ended up with 4..........and the other day I picked up 3 B-bombs......at least I can take comfort in knowing that I'm not alone.

    I saw MoaS @ Pear Market last Thursday. A worthwhile stop if you're downtown.
