Have it burried with you. You will need it in the afterlife.

No worries...your wife/girlfriend's new boyfriend will drink it. Probably within weeks of your demise....

You should have them embalm you with it.

Do you know something about your demise that we don't know? Are you sick or suicidal?

Seriously though, when I had my heart surgery last year that was a concern of mine. But talked to a couple of my homebrewing buddies, many who I met through this awesome place, about it seriously, and we made plans. My biggest concern was the 5 year/50th birthday barelywine, that we brewed- The plan was that if I died, one of the guys would take care of the beer, finish bulk aging it, bottling it and storing it, then making sure it got shared with my friends and family in memory of me on my 50th birthday like planned. All the other beers my Beer Geek friends would all share as they wished.

Since you are in Alabama, have your relatives drop it off for the governor's ball and make sure they tell them its your homebrew.

My wife told me once that I better be careful at work because if anything ever happens she's tossing everything out with the trash and using my beer room as a closet.

I've told family before since I don't mark dates on my brews, just remember, when in doubt, to wait at least 3 weeks to ensure it's carbed.

On the second thought, maybe I should mark a couple, so they have something to enjoy at my funeral.

Reminds me of a song:
"In heaven there is no beer, no beer,
Thats why we drink it here, right here,
And when we're gone from here,
Our friends will be drinking all our beer."

I think thats part of the Canada National anthem.
