Grandfather of all finds in owner's basement
« on: May 25, 2017, 08:57:24 PM »
So, for the last several months, I have been working on cleaning out the basement of our office. A little bit here, a little bit there. I have found some gems that I have posted on here in the recent past. He was the former owner of the building that once was Burger Brewing Co, so some nice finds from there. A tin sign here and there. An old wooden Hudepohl Keg, etc.
     This beauty takes the cake though. That's not a lighting effect, these babies are no longer clear, after who knows how many years sitting inside an unrefrigerated cubby in his basement bar.
     Now taking offers...

 Looks like Zima after consumption.

Hmmm, highly suspect. Last I recall that stuff was clear, not yellow.

Obviously not brewed in a low oxygen brewhouse

Could have been.  But bottle cap ingress is at work here.

Yeah, I honestly think I had less than one bottle of that swill total ever, but remember it being clear. Maybe it's like a nice year old Westmalle now. Or nothing like that at all.  ;D

So I think what we are all wondering is.....how does it taste now?

My parents had some Seagrams that was still from Canada (early 80s vintage) in their liquor cabinet a few years ago.  Interesting tasting... the Old Granddad was better, though.  :)

If I was going to NHCon, I would let you be the guinea pig and the first to try it out.

I have a friend who loved this stuff. Sent him the same pic, and he wants it as a nice (?) Bar top conversation piece

It's supposed to be coming back. You could take those to a store and complain about their QC

It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.
