Love 'em. We get a couple every year in our store. Does anyone else play Land Mines?

Stone's been making the 3 liter bottle for at least 6 or 7 years, long before anyone thought of jamming a beer into a squirrel or marmot. Back then it was $40 for the bottle of Double Bastard and it was a reasonable conversation piece for a party. (3 liters is about 8 1/2 12oz bottles)

The one that surprised me was walking into a local beer/wine store and seeing a mini-keg of a Schlenkerla rauchbier. (The little 1 foot diameter by 15 inch or so tall kegs that first showed up filled with Heineken.) That's a lot of smoke...

Priceless
And yet my IPAs taste more aggressive and sophisticated then Arrogant Bastard I think Stone is overrated: their beers are drinkable, but the only one that I'd volunteer to buy is Ruination. Here in Georgia, they are way overpriced too. For $100, I'll make a really good batch of 5 to 10 gallon limited edition beer!

I've never tried Stone before. You can't get it here in Iowa. Next time I'm in Illinois I might pick one up just to see what all the talk is about. Love the label though! Hilarious!

Unless you are buying tax free, that will probably come out pretty damn close to $100 depending on what state you're in.

I like arrogant bastard, and love stone IPA. I think I like stone IPA better than dogfish head 60 minute IPA. Don't think I'd fork over a hundred bucks for that bad boy though.

Our beer store has old magnums sitting around, both emtpty and full, that are not for sale.

How about a ten year old magnum of Fish Brewing's Oak Aged Leviathan Barleywine? I don't think they'd ever sell it.

They also have 50+ year old cans of Oly that they'd never sell, either... so, you know...

At our homebrew group meeting the other night I bought a $66 3 liter of Chimay Blue for us to finish off with (the meeting was at a beer shop warehouse). It was cool to pour that as people held up their glasses. Massive bottle.

And of course, it was tasty as hell.
