Did you ever wonder...
« on: October 13, 2015, 11:55:15 PM »
...if brewers ever release a beer as a giant inside joke thinking "I wonder if anyone will actually buy this?"


...and then you slap down your credit card...

Like the Pepto-Bismol colored Voodoo donut beer from Rogue.  I would have to put the bottle out of sight to drink the beer.  No I haven't tried it.

I've tried two of the voodoo doughnut beers. Very much they type of 22 you buy once and split with 5-10 friends.

Yeah I tried it too, for some damn reason. Not good, to put it kindly.

The bacon maple wasn't bad for a "gotta try once" beer. I think the bottles are 750 actually, which is actually kind of cool.

I wish I'd tried that one over the raspberry chocolate.

There were more medals at the Aquarium nearby that served their beer. There were more medals at the Public house across the bay. Yeah they have been around a while, but still have a history. Never tried those beers mentioned above.

Haven't tried that one. The second I tried was the chocolate peanut butter banana. It was pretty gross IMO.

Though I think I would buy me one of these for $25. I think it's hilarious.
