    Since I don't hunt for whales, I have to wait for them to wash up on the beach. Last night, out of the blue, someone shows up at my house with a bottle of Zombie Dust. Totally not expecting that... must be karma for the Westy 12 I gave to one of Boise drinking crew. Here's to the beachcomber....:rolling_eyes:

    Nice to know, I take it for granted that here they are available at the grocery store....

    The only recent one I can think of is Lord Chesterfield Ale. Very elusive in these parts.

    The CBS was tapped for a 1 year anniversary event for a local craft beer bar (Lone Star Taps and Caps) and I got to have a couple of snifters of it. Apparently, they had been sitting on the keg for almost a year before they tapped it!

    The KBBS I found on the shelf at Lone Star Beverages during their "Elf on the Shelf" promotion this past holiday season. Haven't opened it just yet. As a matter of fact, CBS is the only one of those that I have actually tried. The rest are still in the bottle.
