    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!

    At least you got two, I only got one! It was so freakin' good and all I could do the whole time I was drinking was be pissed at myself. I must have walked by this beer 20x while it sat on the shelves for a couple of weeks. Leave it up to me to wait just until they sold out to try it.

    Founders Sappy Slappy Bastard

    It's basically Backwoods Bastard aged in maple barrels. Everytime I see anyone from Founders I ask about it.

    La Terroir for me. I know that New Belgium is releasing it again at some point, but it is only their second time making it and sour beers can be tough to replicate. I hope it will be the same as I remember.

    I'm sorry, what I had heard was in reference to Rye'da Tiger.

    It's in barrels as we speak.

    Back on topic, Stone 15th Anniversiary Escondidian Black IPA. This one needs to come back a la Sublimely Self-Righteous.

    Olfabrikken porter for me. It wasn't really a limited beer, but they haven't made it for a couple years. It was delicious, I wish I could find another bottle

    Smutty Rye IPA short batch from this summer. I bought two and finished the second one a couple months ago. They're doing a Rye IPA as a big beer this year, but it's not going to be the same beer.

    Stone 10th Anni Ruination was first to come to mind, but also have to mention Avery's 14th Anniversary Beer. Picked up many a bottle of that but unfortunately had the last a couple years ago.

    WOW. BB tasted like the best piece of candy ever. Adding maple to that? I might move to Michigan just to increase my chances to try this.

    Ellicotville Brewing Company's Nut Brown. Wasn't just one, more like five. But I have yet to seen it again.

    Man what a bourbon bomb that was and at 6 dollars a pour it was hard on both me and my wallet to choke down.

    If they bottled it I am sure after a year it would be amazing but I have never had so much bourbon in a beer since "Heavy Seas - The Great'er Pumpkin"

    kylelenk tells me that Founders maple BA program is really expensive for them. The particular syrup maker from which they get the barrels sells miniscule amounts of their syrup for insane amounts of money. I imagine those barrels are equally expensive and in dearth quantity.

    With that said, I envy you. I've never had Better Half, SSB, or CBS. Sigh...

    I really think that they will make Vanilla again at some point.

    So Rare and Henry.

    I don't think I've ever had a truly one-off beer, but in terms of the likelihood of me finding it again, I'd say BCBCS. kylelenk was gracious enough to share one of his bottles with me (he, too, was incredibly surprised to find them); it was delicious.

    I think that I am one of the few people in the universe that really liked Stone Vertical Epic 12/12/12. However, I'm not sure if this counts because even though it was a 'one and done', there are bottles still in stores all over the area. I will definitely have it again, but I'm still putting it out there.

    Sticking with Stone I will reiterate the 15th Anniversary Escondidian Black IPA. That was a genuinely top notch 'Black IPA', which is normally a style that I avoid pretty regularly.

    I don't know why exactly but it was this years Central Waters Brewers Reserve Bourbon Barrel Stout. I have many more and hope they continue to age this for a full year every year now!!

    So delicious this year. I only managed to keep one bottle for aging because I couldn't stop drinking it fresh!

    Stone 10th was terrific.
    15th, not so much for me.

    Murda'd was a lights out one and done. Luckily, got my hands on a couple.

    I was being sarcastic I can't honestly feel bad for someone who complains about only having 4 left. That sucks man I at least got to try it (see avatar) but I only got 6oz's of it total 2oz'z at a time even then I still feel lucky that I got to try it. It's not the end of the world though I'm sure you've got to try stuff other people would kill for.
