3. Fundamental Observation
Toppling Goliath KBBS (must win lottery and go there - luckily "only" 4 hr trip)

In no particular order on this given day:
- Dark Lord
- Treehouse Green/Julius
- Westbrook Mexican Cake
Dark Lord and said variants.

triple barrel baptist.
TB Baptist isn't even out yet. I sure as hell hope it won't be hard to land!

I had some then I stopped caring.. great thread though.
Since the bucket concept represents unrealized desires beer is not even third on my list.

Had 'em before but can't get now
Bateman's XXB x2
Bateman's Victory Ale
Gale's Prize Old Ale
No bottle is unavailable in the age of the internet, it's just where the price will make you flinch. My bucket list would have to include the full experience.
Westvleteren in the brew house.
Orval while walking the grounds.
Mother of all Storms while standing on the beach.
That third is the most attainable and I have been to Pelican before. Gorgeous view and I envy the locals.
Treehouse green is everything you could imagine. I was skeptical until i drank one. Literally perfect balanceand the most insane silky feeling.
Cantillon Fou Foune
Id also like to try Rose di Gambrinus. Hopefully ill get to try them soon. Going to hudson valley area soon and know of a place that does half bottles for $30. Worth it.
Sam Adams Utopia, Pliney The Younger, Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout.

3. Anything from Carton (had 077XX a little over 2 years ago and it was amazing)
1. Juice Machine
2. King JJJuliusss
3. Very Green
Im kind of spoiled that I live so close to TH. But ever since they Have opened up their Charlton location, The best beers that they have released IMO is In Perpetuity and HOTS.
No particular order:
I have a reocurring dream of finding a genie to grant me 3 wishes
1 Daisy cutter
2 Sip of sunshine
3 Pseudo Sue
Well, with all of this recent chatter about Utopias, that's on my list. Here it is for today:
1968 Thomas Hardy's Ale
Kölsch from gravity in Cologne
I'm with you on the first two. I'm headed to Brussels in about a month and hoping I can knock those off the list. The most I ever paid for a 12-oz beer was a Westy (in Montreal).
My third might be one that I have already had, but haven't had another - Trillium Headroom.
Pliny The Elder
In no order
Tete De Cuvee
The Broken Truck
IIRC all the Blaebeer produced (once a year) goes only to a particular store in Copenhagen where it sells out pretty quickly.
The Fou Foune is a seasonal (Aug IIRC) and sells out fairly quickly but a few of the specialty shops (e.g., Beer Planet, Biertempel or the brewery itself) may still have some. (There's a thread in the Europe form that focuses on what's currently on offer at the Brewery.)
For more Westvleteren, all three varieties, Biertempel is usually a good bet.
But be sure to find the time to visit the Cantillon brewery and do the self guided tour. They'll have some stuff on offer that you may want and some of their stuff can be purchased by the glass for consumption in their tasting room.
1) King Julius
2) Sunday Brunch
3) Focal Banger
Of the ones named so far, I've had P.T.E, Daisy Cutter, Pseudo Sue, and Zombie Dust.
Not much for chasing a beer bucket list anymore, but I'd be pretty ecstatic to try these:
1. Toppling Goliath's Mornin' Delight
2. Alesmith's Speedway BA Hawaii/Kopi Luwak
3. Treehouse's Double Shot single origin series
Honorable Mention: Treehouse's Good Morning and Perennial's BA Sump.
Coffee beer is what got me into beer, so it's safe to say it has a soft spot in my heart. All of these seem to be well respected beers with a more intimate focus on coffee, the first beverage I started getting picky about. The dream would be to do a bottle share "cupping" (from the coffee world) with Double Shot or Speedway single origins.
Not a beer bucket list specifically but my periodic road trips are:
East coast (Treehouse/Alchemist/Trillium/Bissell)
(Russian River/Firestone/La Cumbre)
(Bells/Founders/Old Nation/Three Floyds)
...got it down to a science, waiting in line forever at a release just isn't worth it with all this amazing beer obtainable if you'e willing to travel for It, imho
Haha, the old white whales. Should add Wooden Hell to that list as well.
Personally, there are way too many beers out there now to spend overly much effort on just one beer. I used to be a whale hunter, but have since given it up. I'll still go to local/regional releases if I'm close and it's a brewery I trust (i.e. not breweries that overhype their own mediocre beers to make people stand in line, buy tickets, enter raffles, pay out the ass, etc.), but that's about it. It used to be that you basically had to trade to get really good beer, but with breweries popping up everywhere and great breweries drastically increasing distribution, it seems less and less necessary.
I couldn't contain it to just threeeeee!!!
Mother of all Storms
I don't know if it even makes my list. Beer is the sprinkles on the cupcake, not the cupcake or even the icing, and you can have an awesome cupcake without sprinkles.
Wasn't a Wooden Hell fan. Plus it got made again. Never tried M or Dave, and Isabelle is my favorite of all beers I have tried, would love to have some again before final exit.
