I moved back in July. At my old house, I had a fridge in the garage exclusive to beer and beer supplies. When I moved, I had 18.5 lbs of hops! Really?!? Who does that? I sold half for $80 because I don't have a garage fridge at my new house.

I have recently come to terms with the fact that I am a beer hoarder. Once I designate a beer to the cellar, I never want to open it, even once it has likely gone well past its prime. I have doppelbocks that are over 10 years old that are well overdue to get consumed and/or dumped. I really should start using Xmas as an excuse...I am the opposite of this.
+1. The same applies to my big home brew beers, too. I have a tough time leaving them alone as long as I'd like when they're really good. I found 2 or 3 bottles of RIS recently that I'd forgotten existed. They were well over a year old - really tasty.
I am holding 6 of those beers that I keep around for my birthday (Jan. 5th) And I have to be honest, I have started my bday with Founders Bfast stout for about 4 years, great birthday coffee
Those are all some great looking stashes. I should really start my own Christmas stash. Although, everytime I get a bomber of something I'm so excited I end up drinking it right away.

Yep. Every year. Some of these are from last year and the year before that and so on... it can be tough deciding on the right time to crack a bottle of DL. Certainly I need more than just me around! Most of the hording comes from me not wanting to tackle a high abv bomber solo.

Wtf, tapatalk signed me in with a weird forum name ^^^
My stash is rather weak though
Like these guys have said and what I've learned, it's really not necessary. But the great thing about mulch is it helps replenish nutrients to the soil.That's a great point Frank. I give them a good heaping pile of sifted compost as a mulch in spring so why not do it ahead of time in the fall. The one caveat would be that it could be a problem if there is a very wet early spring and you have soil that drains poorly. we used to have wet springs but apparently not anymore.
I have never tried even one of their beers even though they have been distributed very widely here. The labels are just too gimmicky for me and I have never found it in my wallet to drop the coin for a warm bomber.
Huh. I was underwhelmed by the regular stuff.
Not bad but it didn't stand out. For the price, it needed to stand out.
