So I got curious and ran down to the store during lunch. bottle date was 2/24/10 for 7.99. I was going to try it but alas, the fiver in my wallet was not enough.
No one has mentioned one of the best things about buying commercial beer: free bottles!...unless you keg, then you dont care, but for us bottlers that is always a plus
Russian River, 21st Amendment, Magnolia, Social Brewery, Speakeasy... yeah I have no trouble buying local. :-)
