That beer kicks all kinds of ass
The one I most want to drink is a 750ml Consecration (b2)
My crown jewel will be a zombie dust that i'm going to save for 10 years from the case i just bought.... no one will ever think to age it that long!...
DFH Festina Lente
Close seconds are DFH's other rarities:
Liquor de Malt
& collabs Isabelle and Old Odense Ale
Bolt Cutter? I assume you work at Founders?
Thats a new one, the pre-dick wave.
I have plenty of beer like Rare, DL, KH, BCBS, etc., but the one that I'm waiting for the time to be right is my Wooden Hell. It took alot to acquire. I'm sure to be let down. It was my pinnacle. Now I spend more time at the mix a 6 pack section.
I'd have to say mine are the 3 barrel treated Korknys (Cognac, Bourbon, Niepoort).
Many thanks, Alex!
Of all the things I have that are highly sought after or made in limitied quantities, the beer I treasure the most is my Schultheiss berliner. I would murder to have more.
What kind of beer is it? I looked quicklly and it doesn't seem to be listed on BA.
No, but I am there all the time. Here's my blog post about how I got so lucky: http://thebeertruck.wordpress.com/
From everything I've read, it stand for Wild One. It will be fun to find out sometime in the near future.
Hold the phone. You drank your Bolt Cutter instead of trading it or saving it?! You just don't understand how this whole beer thing works, do you?
I enjoyed the read
I redact my statement about the pre-dick wave, although I do trademark it. Well done
Awesome article and story. Thanks for sharing.
Trademark approved! Thanks!
Thank you very much. I'm glad you liked it.
LOLOLOLOL Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
This is what Im talkin about! Awesome
-2 King Henrys (one of the few quasi-whales I've ever, or likely will ever) own
-1 Black Sheep Russian Imperial Stout
-08 to (hopefully soon) '12 GI Bourbon County
-Durham Brewing Temptation imperial stout
<--Even more jealous
How the hell did you swing that?
I was at the brewery two weeks ago and they had a 6 bottle/case limit.
BB DL '12 and Brandy Vanilla DL...BOOM
JP La Roja grand reserve 2012
For me, 2009 Black Tuesday. Also I have a Millenium Edition Old Rasputin that is prized but I might be tempted into trading that one. I won't do that with my 09 BT.
Oh, and one RARE, that one is not being traded either.
that really, really sucks.
i just started myself, but i've got a 2011 sucaba, a bottle of supplication, and a 2009 three philosophers in there.
trying to age some palo santo marron too.
Most prized would be my '09 & '10 KtG just for the fun adventures my wife and I went through to get them. Most rare would be a JP Broja
I would have to say Grand Lake Holy Grail. (Tickers dream, and tasty too!!)
Cracked my only Rare last Friday with Woodchopper and coreymcafee side by side with VBDL, KH, BA HiFI, Bligh's, Cognac Moloko, etc...because, well, WHEN THE HELL ELSE AND WITH WHOM ELSE WOULD I CRACK IT?!?!
Also, I have to put my 2003 DFH 120 Minute Batch 1 up there as well for me.
The 2008 edition is a great one to cellar.
i've only every had 120 min fresh (C+ imo). i'd be really interested in trying it aged. (wws is money after a couple of years.)
Nice, I have a 2008 as well, which is the bottle I've had the longest (I have a few lambics that old, but I haven't had them that long. I've had the three philosophers since it was fresh).
My Abyss 2010. Not the oldest, not the rarest. My personal favorite. Had the first as a celebration, the second is dedicated to a vertical.
120 min is GARBAGE fresh. Needs a MINIMUM of 3 years. 2008 is STELLAR right now.
Blåbær, Rare, Fou', Lente, 3F A&T, CR.
I don't have any crazy, rare stuff but am happy with what I have. These are the few that I'm proud of.
2011 KBS x 2
Cantillon Classic Geuze
2010 Rodenbach Grand Cru
My g/f probably has me beat. Not a beer geek whatsoever, she has a bottle of Cantillon Kriek Lambic that was purchased from the brewery in Belgium and given to her by a friend a couple years ago.
put that away beer is serious business.
