And if you want to talk old beers - I believe I still have one of these somewhere in the cellar.

Things were so different back then that I remember mailing (I think this may have pre-dated email) and simply asking them for some bottles of it. Then a few arrived at my door, all the way from B.C.

I have a 1975 Courage Russian Imperial Stout stashed away now, something I plan to drink next year. It will be the first (and likely only) beer I'll try that is older than I am.


I had a 1975 3 years ago and it was really neat. Easily the oldest bottle I've ever drunk. Not necessarily the best at that point, but it was more for the experience than anything. My memories are that I was surprised that it still had a gentle carb, and that it tasted like a good stout, but had way too much soy sauce character. Kinda like a better version of that horrible sam adams blue bottle beer, whose name I've expunged from my memory.

Had two great beers this year to celebrate the birth of our second kid. Deus (which although available at the LCBO still ticks my box as something awesome) and a Niagara Eisbock (I think 2001).

And now I have a couple 2012 Oud Beersel Oude Kriek Vieille to share with my son in 2031.

I'm actually coming up on my 10 year anniversary of home brewing, and have a couple bottles from my first mash!

I think the BVDL is going to be the hardest one to open knowing how freaking thick and sweet it is, and expensive it was.

But the one I am looking forward to the most is my 2012 Barrel-aged behemoth.


I am also looking forward to that one...now just have to make sure I am around when its opened :D

I don't know if beerbistro still offers it. You might ask.


I might have to ask...don't remember seeing it on their cellar menu last time...

Haha you know who won't let me. I've been trying to convince her for a while I've almost got her at that breaking point.
