I got to try a flagstaff beer from 1976 in the bicentennial can this weekend. It was an interesting experience.

It's probably terrible. You need to deliver it to me for proper disposal.

I have had a 10yr stout a buddy brewed, no hop presence but still very good. Originally brewed as a 12%abv so I am sure that helped things a bit jn preserving it.

A friend of mine used to home brew back in the early eighties and had some bottles left over. He gave me those bottles and a case of them were still full. I cracked one open and took a swig, i thought he was going to puke. I thought the beer tasted fine. I ended up drinking two of them.

I recently went to a Vintage Beer Fest in chicago. I think the oldest beer i've ever had was there, and I think it was 1999.

They had older stuff, but cost several tickets for just a taster... meh.
