What's the one MN beer you wish you still had one of?

    I cellared a bottle and cracked it open when the black ipa came out. Unfortunately, it was a drain pour at that point. I have the same hope of seeing it again, though.

    As for the MN beer I wish I still had one of, I have to say Surly Four. I did trade my last one for a Rare, though. I am not crying over that trade.

    And, it was filled by unicorns at the end of the rainbow.

  4. That would be a long drive for me.. But if you wanted to work a trade for something here in the western NY area ...

    Last I checked Cellars in Roseville also had this one in addition to Heritage. I have a 2011 one I want to open and see what a year did to it.

    Ahh just noticed your reply with location :) yea still a long drive to Roseville :p

    Would live to find an empty bottle of Two for my collection. The one I had was damaged in a move.

    Should've checked that... BM me and we can try to set something up.
  9. 100% agree. All of their beers are still better than almost anything made today.

  12. It was a 40th birthday present from Omar and Todd. And it did make me feel special.

    I bet we could bug Surly enough to re-release Four. How do we do it?

    This is exactly my thought! Bishop's Bitter was outstanding, it has to have been around 10 years since it closed...

    Brau Bros Rubus Black Blackberry Imperial Porter. I really liked it.

    And of course James Page Northern Lights Bock.
