What will fundamentalist beer lovers
do next year?
I popped into the Galeville Grocery this afternoon and picked up, in my usual mad scramble to drop $100.00 US in about 5 minutes, a bottle of this fine beverage. I have loved every Stone product I have tried. And it looks like I still have a few to go so I thought it would be nice to sip a new one. Well, I guess it will be nice to try the beer I bought today...in seven years. Apparently this is a beer in an eleven bottle set brewed on 02-02-02, 03-03-03, 04-04-04, etc., all to be opened after 12-12-12 ages nicely. The bottle reads:
As with any good epic, herein lies the promise of larger-than-life experiences, heroics and twists & turns as the adventure unfolds. This bottle conditioned ale is chapter four, and is specifically designed to be aded until sometime after December 12th, 2012. At that time enjoy it in a verticle tasting along with its other ten Stone Vertical Epic Ale brethren.OK...this is just weird but I will play along for now. Then again, come to think of it, I will have a four month and 24 day window to after that release to my fiftieth birthday. What better way to celebrate a half century of me than with friends who love ale? I better start collecting.
$6.09 US for the 22 ounce bomber with another 33% at the border for the powers that be.
