    I have plenty of beer like Rare, DL, KH, BCBS, etc., but the one that I'm waiting for the time to be right is my Wooden Hell. It took alot to acquire. I'm sure to be let down. It was my pinnacle. Now I spend more time at the mix a 6 pack section.

    I'd have to say mine are the 3 barrel treated Korknys (Cognac, Bourbon, Niepoort).

    Many thanks, Alex!

    Of all the things I have that are highly sought after or made in limitied quantities, the beer I treasure the most is my Schultheiss berliner. I would murder to have more.

    Hold the phone. You drank your Bolt Cutter instead of trading it or saving it?! You just don't understand how this whole beer thing works, do you?

    I enjoyed the read :)

    For me, 2009 Black Tuesday. Also I have a Millenium Edition Old Rasputin that is prized but I might be tempted into trading that one. I won't do that with my 09 BT.

    Most prized would be my '09 & '10 KtG just for the fun adventures my wife and I went through to get them. Most rare would be a JP Broja

    I would have to say Grand Lake Holy Grail. (Tickers dream, and tasty too!!)

    Cracked my only Rare last Friday with Woodchopper and coreymcafee side by side with VBDL, KH, BA HiFI, Bligh's, Cognac Moloko, etc...because, well, WHEN THE HELL ELSE AND WITH WHOM ELSE WOULD I CRACK IT?!?!

    Also, I have to put my 2003 DFH 120 Minute Batch 1 up there as well for me.

    i've only every had 120 min fresh (C+ imo). i'd be really interested in trying it aged. (wws is money after a couple of years.)

    Nice, I have a 2008 as well, which is the bottle I've had the longest (I have a few lambics that old, but I haven't had them that long. I've had the three philosophers since it was fresh).

    My Abyss 2010. Not the oldest, not the rarest. My personal favorite. Had the first as a celebration, the second is dedicated to a vertical.

    120 min is GARBAGE fresh. Needs a MINIMUM of 3 years. 2008 is STELLAR right now.

    I don't have any crazy, rare stuff but am happy with what I have. These are the few that I'm proud of.

    2010 Parabola
    2011 KBS x 2
    Cantillon Classic Geuze
    2010 Rodenbach Grand Cru

    My g/f probably has me beat. Not a beer geek whatsoever, she has a bottle of Cantillon Kriek Lambic that was purchased from the brewery in Belgium and given to her by a friend a couple years ago.

    Some guy: "I'm really mad because beer needs to be consumed, not collected."

    Some other guy: "No, I'm really mad because this is an elitist thread meant to show how great you are."

    Some third guy: "This thread is pointless."

    Some fourth guy: "I'm really mad about the people who think threads like this are not advocating beer, elitist, or pointless."

    Why are people cellaring Blabaer? Aren't you supposed to drink the fruit Cantillons fresh?

    I kind of forget what's in my cellar; I need to go through it again sometime soon. Maybe Alpine Great (2009), Alpine Briscoe(2008?) or Alpine Ichabod (2007). Maybe my Barrel Aged Speedway Stout from like 2008. Or one of the Veritas beers (007, 008, 009, 010).
