    I would have to agree. A small tear would fall from my eye each time I walked by...

    Firestone VXI is a masterpiece. I'm pissed I only bought to cases because I went through a case in a half in 6 weeks...

    It's not a RS only beer but it's not one that was widely distributed. It's primarily for sale at the Bruery and at Bruery Provisions although I've seen it at a few other places here in Orange County. BM me your address and I'll send you a bottle. Not looking for anything back but if you so choose feel free to donate to one of the charities here:

    This kind of generosity is all kinds of amazing.

    Consider it a deal. Charity for beer.

    As Stone is right down the street from my home, I am ready to receive if they release... That's on my wish list for sure!

    The only problem I had with the mint chocolate stout was that the mint was too overpowering and instead of a true mint taste, you got an undesired bitter taste. But the chocolate was also quite prominent and was a definite plus. Overall I was disappointed

    Nor was brewed more than once. I think the recipe was tweaked a little. Those rice solids looked like hell to work with.

    Someone just reached out to me about shipping me a bottle.

    I've never done a trade before, I was always kind of put off by them. I suppose there's a first time for everything.

    Not there, but I was able to grab two bottles at stores around the Manchester area. Good stuff.

    You're in luck, they thought so too and decided to make it again. It was released again last month under a different name. Then again Kern's so small and so popular that everything from them might as well be a one off. If you have a job that won't allow you to chase a beer truck you're probably not getting any of it anyway.

    Do you mean "The Plunge?" Is that the same beer? I don't even see it listed/reviews for it on this site...

    The 2012 winter ale was the 5th anniversary iipa. The description there is for the previous winter ale. The info came from kern... I think it's still on their Facebook.

    I enjoyed Stone 15th alot, and if they dont do the Belgo Anise IRS this year, that one. I fucking love the shit out of that beer.

    Hardywood Anniversary Ale was a crazy good Blackberry Stout/ASA. I loved that beer too.

    Cigar City Wild Guava Lychee Sour. They did it for a fruit beer event in 2011 called Fruit in the Room. Spectacular. I was so hoping there would be more on tap at Hunahpu Day last year, but there wasn't.

    Also, CCB The Hills Have Coffee. Basically the Patio Tools/Hillsborough River Stout equivalent to the Cubano Espresso Brown Ale.

    I'm serious, it saddens me. It makes me feel like I should have bought more than just two bottles. People here in Miami just don't seem to know all the good beer spots. So a beer like 10th Anniversary sells out within days at Total Wine, but is left on shelves as a liquor store near my house.

    Ok, sad I missed the 2012 Winter Ale then. I didn't realize the Winter Ale changed from year to year (like the Anniversary Ales) and was made the same as the 5th Anniversary DIPA. Cheers!
