I posted this photo in another thread, but I added 2 arrows to show where the beer has been for the past 5 years.
Fermenter 1 - Vienna /Saaz SMaSH
Fermenter 2 - Dry as a bone
Drinking - various craft brews, Tiny Bottom PA
Beer styles I'm trying to nail down: APA, Porter, Mild, Amber, & Something Yellow and Fizzy.

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.
