    I cellared a bottle and cracked it open when the black ipa came out. Unfortunately, it was a drain pour at that point. I have the same hope of seeing it again, though.

    As for the MN beer I wish I still had one of, I have to say Surly Four. I did trade my last one for a Rare, though. I am not crying over that trade.

    That would be a long drive for me.. But if you wanted to work a trade for something here in the western NY area ...

    Would live to find an empty bottle of Two for my collection. The one I had was damaged in a move.

    100% agree. All of their beers are still better than almost anything made today.

    It was a 40th birthday present from Omar and Todd. And it did make me feel special.

    I bet we could bug Surly enough to re-release Four. How do we do it?

    This is exactly my thought! Bishop's Bitter was outstanding, it has to have been around 10 years since it closed...
