Yep. I found an Octoberfest that I brewed in 96 in my parents' basement. It got put there with the rest of my belongings when I went off to the Navy. Like Revy's post, it was stored pretty much at optimal temps (quite by accident since i didn't even realize it was put there). We drank the 12 pack at a family get together in 04. The consensus was that it was very, very good, and it got me back into the hobby.
