Sorry if this question has been asked before on this homebrew sub-forum, once in a while I'm just too damn lazy to search through various keyword searches to find my answers. But anyways... I just had a KBS 2010 (on tap at hopcat, GR) followed by a Bolt Cutter. Both amazing beers. While appreciating every little layer of flavor this KBS had to offer (ranging from sweet tobacco to smoky coffee), I wondered if I could ever in my lifetime re-create something as amazing as this beer with homebrewing. Now I am not a spectator of the sport, I may have only 9 batches under my belt right now, but I've brewed some pretty decent (all-grain) batches. But still I feel that even my best batches, all custom recipes featuring some pretty delicious and complex flavors I've never tasted before in any beer, have fell short of the world-class status that KBS, BCBS, Zombie Dust, and even Backwoods Bastard have achieved. Now obviously this isn't an easy task to re-create the greatest beers known to man (mastered by years of experience and trial and error), but the fact that my most dedicated attempts have feel short leave me with the impression that this is just a pipe-dream. So my question, In you experience as a homebrewer, do you believe it is remotely possible to brew a beer that could stand up to some of the top 50 beers here on beer advocate? Do we have access to the ingredients and equipment needed to produce such a beer or are we destined to require purchasing these beers from the hand of our masters?
