    I was at Shaw's this morning and I checked out the date on a sixer of Brooklyn East India Pale Ale. Best by September 2010 on the bottles. Yikes.

    I got this beer called Leute Bok and it was bb like 2001 about a year ago. It was pretty good actually.

    I saw the San Diego County Session Ale on the shelf somewhere, unrefrigerated, a few months ago.

    I have seen Smutty Big A over a year expired, and for a IIPA that is like way, way expired. That's 119 to you and me.

    Accidentally bought some 5-6yr old Old Vermonster from TOPS liquor here in Arizona. The date was on the bottom, which isn't very common.

    I just saw a Seadog Apricot the other day that had a massive amount of dust on it. I picked it up and it said best by May 09 on it. Wow

    A two year old set of GUBNA cans I once made a thread about.

    Still tempted to see how awful it potentially is.

    In about 2006, while working for a wholesaler in metro Detroit, I found 1 single bottle in a cooler rack of Stroh's Signature. There was no date on it, but I believe it was discontinued in the 80s, as the brewery in Detroit closed in 1985... I bought it cuz it's cool

    I found a six pack of dust covered Grant's IPA and another of Stoney Creek Lager (defunct). I think Grant's has been closed since 2005.

    Over easter, I saw some Unibroue Ephemera that was "Best By 2008". Sadly, it wasn't at Beers of the World.
