Default What did I just buy?

Liquid Solutions got my $10.50 out of sheer curiosity. If you go to their website, look at the 'beer wall', go down to letter 'I', and there is a beer called Item #2499, it says, " If you have been directed to this page you should already know what Item #2499 is." I don't know what it is, but I am assuming its something special so I bought it....along with a few other beers. BTW, if you read my 'rant' about them a while back - I did receive the beer!

Dude, I'm in for two of them. I ordered several other bottles as well. I'm glad you posted, as I was unaware of this site and their impressive Wall of Beer. There were a few that they have that I've been wanting to try -- like the Mikkeller Black Hole and EKU 28.

We'll have to compare notes when our orders of the Item #2499 come in.

Hate to tell you guys, but it's a six-pack of Zima for guys who are too embarrassed to pick it up at their local store.

Sweet. Gonna go and up my order!

Good one, the_bird. Hmmmmmmm, I wonder what a "black and tan" type mixture would be like made with EKU 28 and Zima. I figure either the Zima would jump out of the glass crying like a little girl or the EKU would kill itself to escape the horror.

Landhoney, you thrill seeking madman. Is there no limit to what you'll do for that adrenalin rush?

You gotta post a pic of you drinking the beer. In your wildest extreme sport outfit of course.

I am pretty hardc0re. The only hints: its from Oregon; and they list DFH Immort Ale, Midnight Sun Obliteration III, and Dick's Rock Lava Porter as "Consider these too"
For instance if you click on Great Dive Old Ruffian they suggest you try Oak Yeti, GD Double IPA, and regular Yeti. But when you pick a Fantome, it suggests two other Fantome's and Hair of the Dog IPA2! So I'm not sure if they just list similar beers to the one you selected.

Any guesses? Something interesting from Oregon?

Maybe a bottle of the Abyss from Descutes - nice, nice beer.

Mine has (apparently) shipped and is estimated to arrive tomorrow, but FedEx has nothing more than receipt of information from the shipper. As curious as I am about what item #2499 is, I'm looking forward my first EKU, my first Black Hole and whatever else the fark I ordered.
