    My friends and I have been working on a vertical for this (closest brewery to the west burbs that released something every year ((yes I did feel the need to explain why we'd choose this beer))). While waiting around for the 2012 version to be released something unexpected happened...IT BECAME 2013! Fuckin hell we missed 2012 Bare Tree.

    What would it take to land one?

    Cheers all!

    This thought came into my head as well

    This is why I explained why we'd do a vert of such a lame beer.

    Judging by the response here, I am thinking this question would have been better handled in a private conversation ;)

    This is actually my fault. I found some back ones while sitting on an 11, was like "might as well make it a vertical"

    At this point I'm just determined to do this for the hell of it.

    2012 is the one that is coming out soon. It always comes out in January, but has the previous year on it.

    The 2012 may be a mediocre beer right now. But the 2009 is drinking really nicely right now.

    I had an '08 with a few years on it and thought it was lovely.
