    Any Alchemist beer not named Heady Topper. I don't think they'll ever to get around to brewing anything other than Heady.

    Plus Nor and Walden.

    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.

    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.

    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.
