    I recognized your sarcasm and raised you.
    No worry bro.

    I would drink the shit out of King Henry though, given the chance.

    I have nothing in the King Henry/whale category to trade.
    I have stuff to trade, just no whales.

    Both have been mentioned. Surly Four tops the list. The only beer Surly has topped this with was the '07 Darkness which there are probably less than 50 bottles left in existance and most likely past their peak. Four was also the last Surly limited release that was somewhat widely available and around for a few months.

    My other is Schell's Burton Ale. The best $9 6-pack ever to come out of this state.

    No matter what it is, I tend to love it on the basis that ill likely never have it again.

    Most BA's seem to use KH more like a crowbar in a trade than anything else and those people are dicks. To me it's only as valuable as what it cost me and what lengths it took to get it. So trading my friend for a beer he got from the liquor store he works at doesn't really rank high on the list difficulty. "Whales" would not be necessary but this is hypothetical anyways lol I'll BM you if I get it and you can make me an offer. There are plenty of beers available in PA I could never get so I wouldn't worry about being able to work out a trade.

    Brooklyn's Cookie Jar Porter immediately comes to mind, but at the expense of forming a tear in my eye.

    I liken my experience to falling in love at first sight and bringing them home with you for the night... only to wake up alone the next morning. Man, I miss that freaking beer on these cold winter nights.

    A little over a year ago I spent $10.99 on Durty when it was a short batch. My dream happened, Smuttynose brought it back and even better you can purchase a twelve pack for as little as $13.99. I also noticed someone mentioned Ruinten and Stone wisely brought that back. Any one else have a great beer come back, that they feared wouldn't?

    "only" 4 left??? You are not allowed to use a frowny face. I only have 0.

    I'd agree with King Henry and for a newer beer I'd add Anicca - and if they do bring it back I hope the change the font to appear less offensive.

    The C's look like G's.

    Philadelphia Brewing Co Pharmhouse Arrest. I just happened to be buying a growler for a friend's birthday and it was on tap. Loved it and I emailed them if they would make it again and they said haven't decided if they were going to brew it again. That was 2011.

    Well now I only have one left but Bourbon County Barleywine makes everything ok and it looks like they should be doing that one every year.

    Dug one up while sorting through stuff in the cellar of my store. Drinking mighty fine at three-and-change years in.

    Also, Night Shift Art #12. Damn, that stuff was good.

    I tend to look for lowish-abv brews because I'm usually more inclined to quaff than to sip, yet somehow this week I picked up six- or four-packs of Smuttynose Durty, Firestone Walker Double Jack, and Founders Imperial Stout. I've got a lot of one-and-doneing to do.

    You can get this at their brewery in San Diego, they re-brew it every year, now for a new, mass-distributed release I could see them doing a 15th anniversary in 3 years or or a 20th anniversary in 8 years.

    Proprietor's Coconut and Beer Hates Astronauts are the two for me. Yeah I've still got a little Proprietor's left, but I don't wanna drink it, because I know it's almost the end...

    Beer hates astronauts is like the awesome lovechild of Zombie Dust and Citra Ninja.

    Completely agree, RuinTen is not nearly the beer as the 10th Anniversary, regardless of whether they claim the recipe was the same.
