    So, apparently in December the world is to end. How unfortunate. But at least Stone has thought ahead and prepared a going away party, of sorts. With their Vertical Epic series, the end can be dismissed as a hangover cure for all time.

    With the end approaching, what do y'all (in Colorado/Denver) think about trying to get a Vertical Epic tasting together? I don't have the whole line, maybe 5 or years, but would like to see them gone for a) tasting them and b) making room in my "cellar"

    Any ideas?

    Sounds like a good idea, although I have to say in the past year I have had '05-'11 and they are not holding up well at all. Very poorly designed idea.

    I would pay my way into this in beer, but I think I'll be able to get the gist of it from everyone on BA posting their collective disappointment at once. Come to think of it, the Internet might explode before the Earth does.

    Might be fun. I think I only have 7s left. Couldn't let the others sit. Probably shouldn't have left that 7 sit either. They just didn't seem like they were really getting better. Still a cool concept.

    Just checked, and I have a 6 too, which iirc, was one of my favorites of the ones I had. Although, 6 years is a long time for most beers.
