Hey guys, just went by the liquor store this morning and they had the 2008 Double Dead Guy for sale at $4.49. Two questions: 1) Is this is a really good buy or is it that cheap because its too old (60 ibu's). I was thinking about buying a couple more to add to my beer cellar for aging. 2) Will this be a good cellaring beer? Do you guys think it will be good for aging or is it already past its prime. I'm thinking the loss of IBU's over time will bring out the maltiness. Opinions?

1) I'd hit it for 4.49.

2) I'd cellar it for a couple years, especially at 4.49/bottle. If it goes south you're out 5 or 10 bucks, but have a couple of cool looking bottles...if it mellows nicely you got a great deal for 4.49. I don't see that it's a difficult decision to make.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew
