    I'm talking about beers that are easily accessible to you in your area that other beer fans would be shocked that you've never had it.

    For me it would be DFH 90 Minute and Long Trail Double Bag. I've only been drinking craft beer for about 4 years now, but how have I not had these yet?

    I am obsessed with Belgian beers, yet I have never had:

    Delirium Tremens
    Gulden Draak
    Piraat

    I have had a ton of under the radar Belgians that aren't so easy to find

    I would be embarrassed to admit how long that list would be given the relative ease of
    access I have to many great brews, but then again contentment isn't such a bad thing either.

    With me it's Belgian beers--I"m in the dark with those. Also, for a long time I've heard people rave about Bells 2 hearted ale. Finally tried it and it shot me to the moon.

    When I started working on finishing the top 100 beers of fame I realized I don't have Duvel, Chimay or Gulden Draak marked off. I think I had them before but must have forgotten to notate it.

    any of the rocheforts.

    every day i'm in the liquor store, it's like, "yeah sure, eventually... but today it's something else"

    for no apparent reason. i pass by it, knowing it's world-class and inexpensive. why haven't i picked up a bottle?

    Piraat I'm not crazy about but you really should pick up the Delirium and Gulden Draak. Large format bottles aren't even that expensive and the 4-packs are a steal.

    If your a Belgian fan than definately pick up Tremens and Noctorum. But For me DFH 60 min. Ive never had anything by Chimay either.

    Actually, I usually get embarrassed after I try a bunch of beers.

    I tried Noel first, then Nocturnum. Tremens is my personal favorite. You cant beat it for the price.

    not embarrassed by anything. if i haven't tried it it's because it hasn't come across my path or i passed it up in favor of other beers.

    It's good but nothing to be embarrassed about, although it has to be the cheapest gueuze by a mile.

    For me it would be some Surly ( coffee bender, bender, smoke, cynic and hell) stuff just because I always see it in the stores and/or not a fan of the styles so I always pass them up. So instead I would rather trade them with a fellow BA who loves them or really wants to try them because they don't have access to the beer and happen to love that particular style of beer or leave it for a fellow Minnesotan who truly loves it.

    A lot.

    But on the flip side i have had quite a few delicious beers so i dont think it is that big of a deal. Ill get to them eventually

    Well nothing is really cause for embarrassment, that's just the only beer I could think of that I couldn't believe I never bothered with at any point.

    A lot of stuff from Bells, I've passed up their beers often just because they're easy to get. Same for a few from Founders.

    A fair amount of trappist brews. I've had Westy (including the Blonde [as opposed to the 6]) and all the Chimays (including Doree) but for whatever reason some basic Achel and La Trappe brews have evaded me.

    Not bothering to read hardly any posts, I feel that I don't revisit certain beers often enough. For instance, at this instant I am drinking a Well" Bananer Bread. Malt's have become the red headed step child of the western united states where some people thing beer is water and hops.
    Off topic?
    I drink Coors Light during camping trips. I cant afford to buy 150 SNPAcans.

    Local of mine actually has a bottle of Don Quijote on the shelf, and I've never pulled the trigger, especially for the $/oz. That's a sore spot for me.

    Also, Rare BCS has been on the shelf for ages here, and nobody is willing to pay $34.95 for it. Me neither.
