2 Below by New Belgium
« on: November 12, 2010, 10:40:27 PM »
Well this seasonal is back on the shelves here and dang I like this beer.
I will stock up on it and hoard it because the season will soon be gone.
I dig the flavor of the Sterling Hops in this beer.  Recommend if you have it
available in your vicinity.  all ten of my thumbs point skyward

I really love it on tap the rare times I get out of the house to drink.  I saw it at the grocery store today, I may buy some tomorrow and see how it is in bottles.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

 :o Man, I am amazed at your ability to hide beer!

Although, having some of that on hand seems appropriate
given the weather this "spring"  ::)

How does it age?

Not keeping it more than 6 months....It tastes like 2 below even in the summer.
Yeah you are right this weather is strangely like N. west coast  weather.
I only have 10 bottles left. and then I have 11 bottles of Mighty Arrow...

Word in the CO beer distribution scene is that the 2 Below is gone.  Yep.  Discontinued.

You certainly gave up the valiant fight. ;D

I will have at least one fond memory of it.
On tap at Billy Goat Gruffs.  Hells yes.

What will they sub as a winter ale?

Well, if that's true, luckily you can make it yourself! A friend of mine made a clone that was nearly spot on - all gleaned only from info on the NB website (nice Walt!). Check it out:

I still have a few bottles...will they go up in value?   :-\

Gawd I hope you are wrong Pinnah...that is one great brew I will have to lobby
my cause to Peter.

Edit: just goes to show, If I like it and it works for me....It's going away... :(

Re-Edit: Confirmed with a communique from the Brewery PR ppl.  2 Below is History
replaced with a "Similar" thing.....grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
