I suppose in one sense this could be true...if you're aging it for that long, it's probably a RIS, Barleywine, Old Ale, etc!

Goose Island had been able to do some really awesome things since Ab InBev bought them. I've talked to the brewers at one of the pubs and they've all said that the purchase had allowed them to be more creative and experiment more than before because they don't have to worry about producing the mass market beers. It's freed up a lot of production space...Bourbon County Stout and it's assorted varieties has become much easier to find, even on tap out here in the burbs.

Was at a local restaurant that has 5 micro's on tap.
I was enjoying a Stone Ruination. A guy sits down at a table beside us and ask what is on tap. The waiter recited the list. The guy promptly orders Shlafly's unfiltered wheat. It takes him the better part of an hour to finish his beer. The waiter ask him if he would like another.
The guy replies " no thanks, that was a little to heavy. I'll just have a glass of red wine".

To some extent this is true though, you arent going to see any 2 month old barley wines or RIS's being ready to drink.

This is a prime example of when what I true is also incorrect.

At a beer fest I overheard a guy tell his friends that Lambic is a town in Germany where they produce only sour ales - facepalm.....

That is not what the person said at all. While yes typically heavier beers are the ones we age. This guy implied that somehow the time aging was going to make for a higher ABV. Why do people on HBT just want to pull apart and skew things for arguments sake anymore?
