    I'm pretty sure there's a place here in Charlotte that has cases of each of those sitting in the cooler......

    This is a completely random one, but Brooklyn's The Concoction. Probably the most polarizing beer I can ever remember but by far one of the most interesting things I've ever tasted. Went back for two refills when it was on tap at Beertopia in Charlotte a couple years ago.


    Is it Brawley's that has those, if I had to guess?

    I'm really missing Screamin' Pumkin Spiced Ale by Michigan Brewing. It was so good this time of year.

    I'm not sure if they'll do it again, but I had Founders Sumatra Mount Brown that was barrel aged at the Black Party a couple years ago and it was incredible. It was even more excellent when mixed with a little KBS.

    I haven't hoarded or aged before. I just felt this was a good one given it's supposed ten year aging potential. I won't keep it that long. Maybe 1 year, if I can hold out that long. I might keep the bottle, too, since it's a special one (the three panel one). Otherwise, I'm a buy and consume type of drinker. Well, buy and review, really.

    I am really happy to have gotten two of them, though. My store ran out very fast.

    Alaskan Pale. Never got the chance to try it. Alaskan is one of my faves and haven't tried on I disliked. ?Had the chance, but luck of the draw ended up with the Pale being on the far end of my 'try' list when they announced it was getting discontinued due to rarity of they specific hops used in it.

    Alexander by Rodenbach. I did a 3 month internship at the brewery in early 2000 and 2009. I asked the head brewer if Rodenbach Alexander would ever be re-introduced. He claimed with the dismal success of Redbach and the lack of interest in the Belgium market it will never be brewed again. He admitted that it was highly successful in the USA with beer aficionados during the late 80s and early 90s, but the American market alone could not convince Palm to continue it. Another beer that is not at this point discontinued, but probably will be, is any quality beer from Southampton (i.e. Imperial Russian Stout). Due to Phil Markowski's departure, Southampton has lost all its grove.

    I'd say Thomas Hardy's Ale despite the supposed acquisition of the rights and recipe.
    It's like the Duke Nukem Forever of beer. It's going to be a running gag for a decade, and mostly be vaporware...err...vaporbeer? until yet another brewery takes it over.

    Probably a dumb question, but I'm guessing those bottles of Nemesis are just for in house consumption?

    Three years ago, Weyerbacher brewed a smoked imperial stout called "Fifteen" (as in their fifteenth anniversary). It doesn't get a ton of love, but it just suits my tastes perfectly. It's simultaneously one of the best stouts and smoked beers I've had, and I've been buying it up whenever I see four-packs still lingering on store shelves.

    I'm glad people don't like that one as much as I do, because I weep for the day I can't get it anymore.

    I liked that one too. I did enjoy Fireside Ale a whole lot more- so I focused on drinking that one at the time. At least you can still get one of those beers; I can't get either. Enjoy it while you can!

    I liked Fireside, too, though the Fifteen might be in my top five, period. I hope to get a few more four-packs soon! It's one of my "special treat" beers.

    In the mid- to late-90s, I loved the Dogbolter strong ale brewed by the chain of Firkin pubs in England. Those pubs are long gone, but I still remember how satisfying those pints were. Rich, smooth, malty, tons of dark fruit. (Of course, my palate has changed a lot since my last pint of Dogbolter almost 15 years ago, and it's certainly possible that I wouldn't like it very much today. But I'd love to try it one more time to find out.)

    A beer I really loved that has been discontinued (for the time being) is New Glarus Fat Squirrel. That was easily my favorite New Glarus beer, but now its probably Spotted Cow.
