50 Beers to Try Before You Die

Thought the beer snobs here might like this article (and probably critique the hell out of it).

http://www.wisdeo.com/articles/view_post/2984
(CBS) You've heard of "100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall"?

How about 50 to try before you die?!
Spoiler!

I'm moving in two weeks and I have a 100+ bottle beer cellar. I'm thinking I should drink some of those beers so as to make moving easier. Right now I'm attempting to polish off my stash of Great Lakes Blackout Stout.
You could always make that move easier by shipping some of that beer to the Eastern part of the state...

I know someone that would enjoy some.

Irishjayhawk tried the same rhetorical tactic via Twitter not fifteen minutes ago. As I told him, that doesn't seem like the proper play from my perspective. But if you find yourself in Excelsior Springs in the next two weeks then I'd gladly open up some nice bottles for you.

For the quality stuff you keep around on a regular basis, it would almost be worth the trip.

I know I'm way behind on this, but did you decide on Alabama?

Yup. I've got a house lined up and a housemate who has already graduated from the MFA program there & is working as an instructor for the university; he writes nonfiction too and will daily be a source of inspiration. I'm pretty excited about the whole thing.

The only thing I'm not excited about is Alabama's draconian beer laws. Until last year you couldn't sell any beer over 6% ABV in AL. Until the last legislative session this year breweries couldn't sell growlers of draught beer. Both of those things were overturned thanks to the work of the grassroots organization Free The Hops. AL still has bullshit - for example, it is still against AL law to sell beer in any size greater than 16oz (no bombers or 750mL bottles) - but I think that will be overturned too in the time that I am in AL. I look forward to working with that organization and educating the people of Alabama about beer and advocating for craft beer.

Very cool. Best of luck to you, and Roll Tide.

I really want to try the Odell Woodcut #4 (I love Oktoberfest beers), but found out it's $25/bottle. Insane. Probably won't pick one up at that price...

I did find a 6er of Bully! Porter last night, though. Haven't had a chance to try it yet...

I have a bottle of that Imperial Pilsner in my fridge. Should probably crack that fairly soon - been looking forward to trying it...

I just got 4x Founders Curmudgeon Old Ale in the mail. I don't know why I got them. I didn't trade for or order them. Totally strange.

I'll PM you mine so you can send them on.

Sipping on a 2008 bottle of De Struise Pannepot (Old Fisherman's Ale). I haven't had the venerable Westvleteren 12 but I've had nearly ever other significant Quadrupel - this bottle of Pannepot is the best Quad I've ever tasted.

Two beers tonight: both split with a friend, both over 10% ABV, both costing over $20 retail.

Odell Woodcut No. 3 is totally not worth the price. It is a pretty typical barleywine/strong ale. It tastes pretty good but fails to measure up to standards set by much cheaper beers in the style.

Russian River Consecration, a sour beer made with red currants and a whole lot of wild yeasts and bacteria, is tremendous. A true joy to drink.

Dwamn! Wow. Russian River Temptation is worth the price of admission. This is even better than the Consecration I had last night.

Trade for Temptation, peoples (or buy it, you ****s that live in CA). You will not regret it.

Much earlier in the day I had a bottle of Schlafly Irish-Style Export Stout. A store had a few six-packs broken down into 99 cent a piece bottles. It is a very good export stout; totally worth one dollar. Nice and roasty.

p.s. note that I have begun to hyperlink my reviews on BeerAdvocate on the titles of the beers I mention in this thread (when appropriate). Give 'em a read for more detailed information.
