  4. I came here to post this. I'm very disappointed I joined the craft beer hunt the year after they stopped making it.
  5. Not sure where you're from, but I highly recommend seeking out New Glarus Belgian Red if you have not tried it yet. It blows Founders Cerise away IMO.

    To that note, I can't say with certainty that both beers are attempting to achieve the same thing.

  6. Really? Haven't tried it yet but I saw a few cases at one of my local distributors.

  11. Another vote for Squall, which I found dramatically better than 90 min. Also, Festina Lente.

    3 Floyd's Amon Amarth Ragnarok and 3 Floyd's Evil Power. Last time I visited they said there were no plans to brew either anytime soon.

    back a few years ago, i got a 24 pack spring mix pack from sam adams that included the brown ale, scotch ale, black lager, boston lager, and another one...i really enjoyed the scotch ale and brown ale. this was well before my addiction to BA and craft, but id love to see the scotch ale come back from sam adams.

    I'll go with

    BCBVS
    Sam Adams Hallertau Imperial Pilsner

    I've never had those, but I know that they'd be on my list of favorites.

    Squall was the first beer I thought of.
  17. Summit's Kolsch and RyePA.
  18. Dirty Beaver Juice Weekend. I think it's better than Melange #3.

    the bruery Partridge in a pear tree!

    not only would it be hilarious to see the value crushed on this one, but i had it with 3 years on it and it was phenomenal! it deserves to be tried by many
  22. Wasn't too crazy about the Pepper Porter, but really enjoyed the others.

    I don't know if Ruination 10 is considered, but that stuff was awesome, would love to have that again.

    Tyranena Devil Over a Barrel.
  26. Another one off - Stone 15th. I'd be happy if they retired Sublimely Self Righteous and released 15th in 4 packs.

    Wild Goose Spring Wheat Ale. For someone like me who doesn't care much for the wheaties I loved this beer. It also came in what looked like a plain cardboard colored six-pack with lime green lettering.

    They still make Pete's Wicked Ale? It was one of my 1st micro-beer tastings. Good stuff!

    And, they may not find one. I keep checking their website: http://www.brewinvest.com/ but I now have little faith that they can pull it off.:(
