2010 Parabola. Exotic, I know...
Regardless, I'll enjoy the hell out of it.
FW XVI? or XV?
They're only about 20-23, but i think a cool beer to round out the year. A blend of a ton of their limited release stuff
Magnum of Anchor xmas $15 @ Bevmo.
The sad thing about it is someone will probably buy it...
My New Years tradition is to splurge on a big bottle of Chimay Blue. 12 bucks, and I consider that expensive. But I'm kind of a cheapskate.
I just cracked a Westy 12.
1. A great beer
2. Not the best beer in the world. Not in my top 10.
3. I drank 8 other trapist beers over the last 3 days in preparation to drink the westy, my opinion: I like trappist Rochefort 8 the best. $6 a bottle, available anytime.
4. Glad I traded for 3 bottles so I can age some. I am also very glad that I was able to try this beer. Im sure people reviewed this beer so high because of the experience of being in the Belgian countryside and its rarity.
5. Going back to my stance that not all trapist beers are very good, but some are world class!
Any time you buy a $13 bomber?
Wait wait wait...I thought the world was ending on 12/21/12. Do you meaning Ive been slaughtering my cellar for nothing???
HOW MANY calling birds, now? ; )
Baladin Xyauyu Gold.
You must have a gueuze for midnight so go with the De Cam. Celebrate in style with the champagne of Brussels. I will drink some fresh IPAs (most likely Sucks will be amongst them) and then something aged in bourbon barrels (likely to be MoaS). Then I will open a 750ml of Doesjel or Tilquin for the New Year.
The Saison-Brett was quite tasty, and you cant go wrong with a good Bruery Beer
2009 Dominus Vobiscum Brut
Skip #5 unless you love uncarbonated quads. And you should probably drink your #3 sooner, rather than later. I have had a bottle every 6 months or so for the last three years, and my last one got me thinking that it's starting to fade. The oak was very dominant, and not balanced by the rest of the beer.
Lambickx is an unblended lambic.
Ask at the counter at Zipps for Utiopias. I know they have had it there in the past, and they don't leave it on the shelf.
I'm not sure I could spend $25 on a single bottle right now if I wanted to. I don't think there are any shelf-whalezbro out right now in NoVA.
I agree with your suggestion and comment regarding DeuS, it's a fabulous beer. Any time I've opened one of those, even with the folks who don't drink or enjoy beer that much, have always enjoyed it. I have to say, there's been at least (4) times when I picked up the Scaldis Prestige and then put it back due to the price tag, but who am I trying to kid after dropping $125 on a bottle of Tactical Nuclear Penguin?
Why spend $40 on a beer that is just KINDA worth it?
Damn being a reserve society member really has changed what I view as "ridiculously expensive" since most of those beers are over $20 easy. I agree with the opening of a lambic or gueze at midnight though whichever you decide.
Mikkeller Nelson Sauvignon, if it's being released this year.
I saw a store making a 4 pack out of Mikkeller Bourbon Barrel Monk's Brew for $60.
Good call. Tasty beer to boot.
Anything that starts with BA and ends with Dark Lord!
