There may be a couple I would like to try but with all the stuff in the bottom of the bottles on some of them I think I'll pass. I personally don't think is was a great deal and the guy was really lets say a character to say the least. Anyway if anyone wants some for their collection let me know. there were 94 bottles and I have over 2hrs of round trip travel plus $75 invested. If there is interest we can take it to the classified section.
There are definitely some great beers in there. some don't look that old (the mousehead lager looks like a long neck not a stubby and the sam smith look identical to the ones they still sell today) but others look awesome - mackeson, young, mcewan, courage, old peculier, beamish...even the old london pride might be interesting (probably from the 80's when they still used maize, invert and caramel colouring). I'm only familiar with the canadian and uk, there could be some great german beers in there too.

Sounds good to me! Let me know when you want to do this and I'll put a few in the fridge.
