Casting about in the fridge and found: A Rogue Shakespeare Stout. Lovely surprise at 3am. Forgotten anything lately?  ::) This is one fine brew.

Too funny euge!  I just found 6 Old Sol and 6 Old Wooly.  Both from Big Time, last years wooly and this year's sol.  It's fun to find stuff when you "lose" it in storage.

Just found one of my three year old Raspberry Lambics in the back of the beer fridge.  Now I have to decide whetther to drink it while brewing tonight or hide it again.

A few years ago I brewed a 10 gallon batch of crappy beer so I turned one keg of it into malt vinegar and forgot all about the other keg.  About a year later I was checking tags on the kegs in my beer fridge and found the second keg from that bad batch.  A year of lagering turned it into one of my best beers ever.  I was glad  I tasted it before I poured it out.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Anything I want to store I put in my parents basement. My old man's beer world starts and ends with Miller High Life, so it's safe. Sometimes I find some cool stuff when I'm nosing around down there.
