    Weeeeeeelll, I don't think I can narrow it down to six BREWERIES or six STYLES of beer, let alone six specific, individual beers. It makes my brain hurt to even try.

    So I'll include my best attempt at a 12-pack, with the idea that any 6 beers selected at random from the full 12 would be a mighty fine 6-pack in my eyes.

    (in no particular order)

    Boulevard Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale
    Green Flash Rayon Vert
    Orval Trappist Ale
    Young's Double Chocolate Stout
    Cantillon Classic Gueuze

    Cantillon Kriek 100% Lambic
    Boulevard Hoppy Wheat
    Green Flash West Coast IPA
    Samuel Smith Organic Chocolate Stout
    Franziskaner Hefe-weisse

    Are bombers allowed in the sixer? I'm just going to assume yes (when I lived down the street from Brew, a bottle shop in south Philly, they always let me mix-a-six with bombers). I'm also only putting in beers I've had before.

    RR Consecration
    Ballast Point Coffee Vanilla Imperial Porter
    Weyerbacher Insanity
    Wake n' Bake
