    What new bottle? Do you mean Kvasir and American Beauty? Or perhaps Piercing Pils? Or perhaps next year's new 6-pack of Namaste?

    Palo Santo is incredible. Happy to try this since DFH is not yet distribute in WI. 90 Minute is what got me wanting to try more and more beers in general.

    I've had Faithfull (7%, a one-time release, with 2 years on it), My Antonia (7.5%, 1 year on it), Noble Rot (9%, only had fresh, been out for almost 2 years now though), PC (10%, only had fresh, been out for a year and a half), and Theobroma (9%, had with about a year on it I believe). I enjoyed My Antonia (very malty) and Theobroma (still a good bit of chocolate and spice). Faithfull did not hold up, but I haven't had it fresh. I wasn't a huge Noble Rot or PC fan fresh (despite my love of cider). They were good, but I have no idea how they will hold up with age. Personally, I wouldn't age them, but if you got the money then go ahead, I mean they have the ABV to last a bit.

    Dogfish got me into craft so I have tried all the ones released since 2011 in bottles (except Pangaea, saw bottles just by the time I went to try it they were gone :slight_frown:). Try to get most of the 750s fresh (Fort & Raison D'Extra are the exceptions). I did enjoy Squall though with 2 years on it, it was just a huge malt bomb, quite refreshing.

    Thanks Gilla, and all others are more than welcome to comment...I live in a college town, so I'd guess that's why they get practically release DFH does, but they. don't. sell. here. Too much Natty to buy and whatnot. So they sit and sit. But all this conversation has piqued my interest :grinning:

    TBH DFH sits at most places unless there is someone that truly loves DFH nearby and even then, they usually just scoop up their favorites. The only stuff that doesn't sit is: WWS, 120, Immort, Olde School, Fort (retired but still around at some places) and Palo Santo (to a lesser degree since it is year-round). These all coincide with being the best DFH beers to age.

    I don't know about Raison D'Extra but it is coming back out next year, so we will see how it does on the shelves, since it was retired before I was into beer. However, I expect it went pretty fast before it was retired.

    Burton Baton and 120 might be my favorites. Palo Santo is up there too.

    I think that was a reference to their new embossed bottles.

    Immort Ale. One of the best beers anywhere, I will miss it greatly when it is gone.

    Palo Santo Marron is a terrific, terrific beer. Love it.
    90 Minute IPA is still one of my favorite IPA's. 60's not bad, too.
    Burton Baton is good, although I think GD's Rumble is better and cheaper.
    Indian Brown Ale is nice, but one I haven't had in a while.
