Good luck. I've been looking for it for over a year. Every stop into Bottle Barn or BevMo I hope to see these on the shelf and haven't yet.

Ohhh! I was actually going to edit my post to say I'd looked for the shiny kettles the few times we've been there.

Well, hmmm. Maybe I should swing by and pick one up on Saturday!

I e-mailed Craig to ask how much they were and how many they had. I'm still waiting on the response. You know they're around $100-$120 a bottle, right?

I hope it tastes better than most Sam Adams beer!

But it's still bubbly, right? Even after the 12 years? Because that's the best part of beer, the bubbles.

50 proof?

I don't see how it'll taste like beer.

A couple of weeks ago I had 8% alcohol beer and it tastely like NyQuil and feet.

Let me know if it's any good. In my (limited) experience with ultra-strong beers, they're really not very good. This leads me to the opinion that our ancestors were wise in favoring other drinks for stronger potency, and relegating beer to under ~12%.

Yeah, I'm thinking it will be more like a strange wine or a pyment, or even like a cognac or something, heh.

Oooh that looks nice. We have a similar store in SF called City Beer Store that is pretty cool, although it is much, much smaller. Their monthly email is where I heard about the Sam Adams beer I posted about here.

Sam Adams finally figured out what to do with all those early batches that tasted like poo and wouldn't sell.

Kind of brilliant, like Whole foods taking old chicken and wilted celery and turning it into $13 a pound chicken salad.
