    Haven't seen this March/April beer hit shelves yet. Local stores haven't got any word on it. Anyone seen it yet?

    Interested to hear people's experience aging this one. Need to decide how much to grab!

    I had the 2014 Curmudgeon a few weeks ago at a brewfest and it was damn good. I would grab a nice amount.

    Damn. Can't wait until it gets here, love this beer. Local stores around Omaha haven't heard a peep about it coming yet!

    I just had one! I thought it was delicious! Fruity, sweet, spicy and with a nice dose of alcohol.

    Great fresh. Phenomenal with 9-12 months on it. I usually drink one fresh per year and save the rest. I haven't had it much past a year because I don't see the point. It's just so damn good right around there.

    I look forward to its appearance every spring! It's one of my comfort beers.

    No need to age it, as it is already an Old Ale! ;)

    I'm telling you guys, age it. The 2014 version was so good.

    I have a crowler in my fridge I just got filled of 2015. Looking forward to that this weekend. Looking to score some bottles to stash in the cellar.

    I had a 13 or 14 not that long ago that was less than desirable. I haven't had a fresh one in a while. May have to grab a few singles and revisit.

    I had a 14 not too long ago as well and I loved it. Different tastes, which makes this so great.

    Some of my liquor stores still have last years... Does this one taste better fresh or with age?
