I have another bottle in the fridge that won 1st place in the Del Mar Fair in 1995. I'll pop that one open tomorrow. I still don't expect it to be any good, but who knows?

Okay. It was not as well carbonated - not flat - it still hissed a bit when uncapped - but definitely low on carbonation. However, it did not have any "off" flavors that you might expect for a brew that old. It aged well!!! (Wish I could say the same for myself!!!)

I ended up mixing some of it with Bud Light to provide more carbonation. Even diluted, it made an excellent amber ale! Lots of flavor still after all those years!!!

So, that's basically 2 for 2 for aging quality brews for many years. That goes against the grain (pun intended) for aging beer. All that I can think of right now is that, if you use quality ingredients and quality techniques to make a good brew, there is no reason to expect the beer quality to decrease drastically over several years.

I'm still shocked!!!

I wouldn't have believed it if someone else had posted it!!! LOL!!!
