What's in the Cellar?

Just a brief video of the beers I currently have stored away - should keep me busy for a good little while!



Some of the brews are from previous trips. The new-to-cellar ones are: Tilford's Nit Wit by Garrison, Maître Brasseur's Champenoise, Tusker, Quilmes, Samuel Smith's Organic Lager & Pure Brewed Lager, Lost Coast 8 Ball Stout, Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout, Mill Street Coffee Porter, Anchor Porter, Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter, AMB's Imperial Poorter and Imperial Stout, Samuel Smith's Imperial Stout, Anchor's Old Foghorn, Lagunitas' Gnarly Wine, Pauwel Kwak, Trappistes Rochefort 10, Rogue Hazelnut Nectar, Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale, Lagunitas' Wilco Tango Foxtrot and Undercover Investigation Shut-down Ale, AMB's Scotch Ale, Pump House's Scotch Ale, St. Ambroise's Scotch Ale, AMB's Rousse Fumee, Brasseurs de Montreal's Ghosttown, Ayinger's Altbairisch Dunkel, Efes' Dark Lager, Sea Level's Dussel-port Altbier, Dieu du Ciel's Resousse, Samuel Smith's India Ale (IPA), La Vache Folle ?, AMB's IPA, Red Racer IPA, Garrison's Hop Yard Pale Ale, Samuel Smith's Old Brewery pale Ale, Sea Level's Planters Pale Ale, Samuel Smith's Tadcaster Bitter, Garrison's Sugar Moon Maple, Unibroue's Ephemere, St. Ambroise's Apricot Wheat, DdC's Blanche du Paradis, Caracole's Saxo, and MC's Dominus Vobiscum Double.

There's something satisfying about building your own collection of brews in the cellar - akin to what a wine collector must feel - only this collection should be tastier, cheaper, and less aristocratic. Happy, better-quality drinking in the months ahead!

  1. Looks like you've got one of each of the good Premier beers there! Don't wait too long on the bigger IPAs: I've lost a few goods one by making that mistake. Drink those guys fresh.

  2. They were the first thing I hit. All gone now! Since then, I also got and drank a couple of other IPA's: Swans Extra IPA and Phillips' Hoperation Tripel Cross Belgian IPA. Out of those two, I preferred the Swans. Sam Smith's was a nice British IPA, and AMB's was better than I thought it would be.

  3. Nice cellar collection ... are you aging them or just trying to get to each of them?

  4. Mostly just trying to get to each of them - I counted 43 of these in the video as gone. There are several to many more in their place, though. I am aging some of them - the Trappists, a few Belgians & stronger ales.
