to avoid the waiting I'll go to creepy six pack shops and try to find dusty bottles. those ones are usually already aged a few years. thats how i found a beer brewed when i was in 8th grade ('03 dfh old school barleywine) and a 2006 raison d'extra which isn't brewed anymore. I try to take advantage of some six pack shops lack of salesman ship. I will try to convince them to drop the price because the bottles are so old and "surely expired"

I like 'sweeter' beers and I find that I have to age the commercial beers to bring out the flavor. I learned this when I had a six pack of a pumpkin beer hidden away in a dark place for over a year and when I drank it, it was some of the best beer I ever had!
