Default So I just found a case of beer

in my closet. I was storing 2 cases of my Chocolate Stout that I just bottled for carbonation and discovered a case of beer. I didn't label the bottles so it must have been one of my first batches. Threw a couple in the fridge and we'll play Guess That Beer later.

I am drinking a bottle of mead that I found in what I thought were boxes of empty bottles. It seems to be a ginger mead with fruit (cherries?) from three years ago. It still tastes great.

Sometimes those found-again bottles are treasures! More than once I have found a long-forgotten bottle (or few) of something that tasted WAY better after aging for a number of months than when it was young. Even just the nostalgia should make it a fun sampling!

I've attempted to drink some homebrew that was upwards of 3 years old... not so good.

It was a Blue Moon clone I brewed a year ago, my second batch ever. It tasted nothing like Blue Moon, very little body, no orange coriander or yeast flavor. Tastes very much like Hoegaarden - which I hate. Bummer.

I made a barley wine that I stashed 5 bottles and forgot about. I found them about a year and a half later. Boy I wish I had the discipline to put a couple of 6ers a side for a year more often. That was some goooood barley wine.

This sounds like it belongs in the "You Know You're a Brewer if......" thread.


You know you're a brewer if..................................you brew so much beer that you lose a case and don't even realize it until you find it in your closet years later and still try to drink it because you know that beer only gets better with age.

I did this a couple of months ago. Found 3 bottles of my first dunkelweizen, put them in 500 mL flip tops because I apparently ran out of bombers at the time. One didn't hold it's CO2 and was flat and gross, but the other two were damn tasty
