My local Albertson's has a pretty impressive beer selection, but they still adhere to the old grocery store rules on clearances, so they often sell big, aged beers for a reduced rate to rotate their stock.

I've taken advantage of this before: cheap bottles of Unibroue and Chimay here or there.

Then, today, I see a shopping cart FULL of North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, $7.50 a 4-pack. It's normally $10.50 a 4-pack.

I take the sign off of the cart and wheel it right up to the register.

I think some of this stuff might already be a year old, and was mainly stored in the low-light cooler.

Here's to old beer!

Nice score! My Albertson's has good craft beer too, but they never have so much that they put it on clearance.

That is a very classy move! The whole shopping cart right to the front. I hope you were so excited you forgot whatever you went to get in the first place.
