    You might be right about that...but regardless the reason, it still basically boils down to quality control. They want to keep people drinking fresh beer, which is awesome and I commend them for it. I never heard about them finding 90+ day old RR, though. Either way, I'm down with the decision. Any move by a brewer to ensure the quality of their beer is good by me!

    Damn. It's hard to believe that these guys have only been brewing beer a little over one year. Great stuff.

    Maine Beer Co lil one.
    A great hoppy beer.
    They say on the bottle that this their winter beer. Get this, it is actually bottled in the winter. Jan 31, 2013 bottle date. What radical thinking in Maine.

    Didn't like it a week ago, and don't like it now. It was bottled on 1-4 though, if there is any issue with that.

    Two Hearted Ale. Tough for me to find better beer for the price.

    No pics sorry but I tried my first Nugget Nectar and loved it, also having a sixer of New Albion Ale and finishing a bottle of Bourbon County Stout.
