Oh em gee! I know, I’m just on a roll today. This isn’t at all related to the previous post, so I can justify making a separate entry.
I just realized that when I turn 21, I’m going to be able to buy any beer I want. This means I won’t have to rely on friends to go to some far away liquor store and hopefully pick up that precious beer I desire, that they have never heard of and probably can’t remember the name of either. So what does this really mean? It means that I can walk into a store and buy a bunch of great beers all at once. It means that I can start a beer cellar!
Oh wow, foam. you can buy beer when you’re 21. that’s amazing! >>sarcasm.
Haha. Here’s the point, The sooner I start buying beers that I can age, the sooner I’ll have a collection of mind blowing beers for 5, 10, 15 years down the road. Imagine my graduation party in two years. I could be popping open a bottle of SN BigFoot Barley wine from 2008! When I get my first job at a brewery, I could crack open a 2008 vintage of Goose Island Demolition!
Here’s a short list of beers that I want to bogart, once that inevitable day arrives:
- Thomas Hardy’s Old Ale
- North Coast Stock Ale
- Sierra Nevada BigFoot Barleywine
- Unibroue Maudite
- Unibroue Terrible
- Unibroue Trois Pistoles
- Rogue Old Crustacean
- Sam Adam’s Utopia (but I don’t have that kind of cash, and I don’t really want to support beers that push the price point of the top tier)
