    and had to drop the rest (for life), what would it be?

    Incredibly rare beast?
    Sessionable monster that constantly eludes?

    Me first: Zombie Dust --- sessionable, beastly, can't get it easily

    Not sure but it would be between these:

    Zombie Dust
    Hopfen Wiesse (gin and pinot noir barrel aged)

    ....and probably a bunch more. These are hard. If im asked this question next week im sure the answer changes

    If I was (heaven forbid) forced to drink only one beer for the rest of my life, I would without a doubt choose Bells Two-Hearted

    Just had my first Pliny the Elder a few days ago. I was afraid it would be a let down from all of the hype. I mean, seriously, how can a beer live up to that amount of hype?

    Not only did it deliver, it was even better than I could have imagined. Before I had the chance to try a Pliny, I thought everyone was just blinded by the hype, proclaiming how great it was only because that was the "normal" thing to do.

    But no. Not at all. That beer - Pliny the Elder - is fucking delicious. And I can't get it in Michigan. So I would probably choose to have a constant supply of that all the time. Would've said FBS, but it's pretty easy to find in Michigan when it's in season, and I usually by enough to last until the next year!

    I'd go with my favorite (but have no access to) Double Sunshine.
    I wouldn't complain if I was stuck with Heady though. Or Abrasive.

    The collaboration one-off brewed at Ithaca called Super Friends. I could drink that one happily, and no other, until Planet X returns to this side of its orbit.

    I reserve the right to amend my answer after trying my first Zombie Dust this Friday. For now, it's either Deschutes Black Butte porter or Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA.

    Sorry but if I had to drink anything all the time to the exclusion of all else I know I would get tired of it. For me, it's variety and the occasional purchase mistake that makes those great beers that much better. But....if you put a gun to my head it would be Heady, no doubt.

    I'm with the OP- Zombie Dust is amazing and I don't think I could ever get tired of it.

    I need overall versatility, especially with food, drinkability, yet still has flavor I like. For me, SA Boston Lager. Fresh keg on tap at some spots in town - it's fantastic.

    I want to say Heady Topper, but at 8%, it doesn't really fit the "sessionable" bill. So, I'd probably say HF Arthur or HF Edward. Ton of flavour, and relatively sessionable.

    If I could only have one beer, it couldn't be anything legendary, because that would get tedious fast. Have to be low abv, sessionable, but tasty, and thus, SN Pale Ale.

    I can, but I would still choose it. Celebration is my favorite beer and if I could only have one for the rest of time, I would not want anything else.
