06.06.06 Stone Verical Epic

Hells bells! I forgot to mention that yesterday was 6/6/06, Satan's birthday.

But the real reason to care is that Stone Brewing shipped the 06.06.06 entry in their Vertical Epic series of beers. They release one entry each year (the first on 2/2/02, the second on 3/3/03, etc.) and claim that they'll all be perfectly mature on 12/12/12.

Yeah, it's a gimmick, but it's the exact kind of gimmick that I fall for. The 02.02.02 edition, with only 300 cases made, is one of the rarest beers in the world. Fortunately, Stone also releases homebrew recipes for each beer, so you can make your own. (And heck, maybe I'll just buy a kit!)
