Do bars ever hoard kegs like that? I'd think they mostly want to turn stuff over quickly.

I do recall Katie at Thirsty was specifically holding back a Bellwoods for a certain special time, but yeah basic bar sense means you want to keep your liquids, err, liquid.

You're going to make me want to taste another bottle... Damn my rubber arms! ;)

I had another bottle upon hearing this. Still tastes fantastic.

Yah, I don't really get the 'yawn' comment.

Coors light is in cans. Coors is boring. Ergo, cans make people yawn.

That's sarcasm,

I was wondering if anyone has had infection issues with beers other than the 2018 BOYD? I sent a Black Roses to someone recently as a desired extra in a trade and he let me know it had gone quite sour. Has anyone had issues with 2017 BOYD, 2017 or 18 Skeleton Keys or recent 3 Minutes to Midnight? Cheers!
