Not sure if anyone has been into the Gomers in Parkville lately but I stopped in today and was impressed with their remodel. It seems like their selection has improved as well over the past few months. There was nothing uber rare but they had some Prairie Paradise and Pe-Kan, American Solera Eng-Yak and The Ground is Shaking, Grimm Double Negative and some other good stuff. These beers may be sitting around a lot of places but I don't frequent the bottle shops like I used to. If you happen to be in Parkville though I recommend making a stop there.

I just had one a couple of nights ago. It's still good but is about a month away from its "Drink By" date by now.
Why would a barrel aged 12% quad have a drink by date on it? And why would it be only 2 years after release? I bet it would still be good 3 years from now.

To add to Eric's response and at the risk of stating the obvious, it is because 2 years is the window in which the brewer feels the product will be at its best if stored properly. In my experience, a beer--even a big beer--that keeps in peak condition for years or improves, is the exception, not the rule.

Gomer's Lenexa has a ton of 750s of Nebraska Brewing EOS Hefeweizen on sale for 4.99/bottle. I picked up a couple, it's tasty.

To make room for 6 pack cans on the way, just put Roughtail Pale Ale 4 packs down to $6.99 at Lukas OP if interested.

I drank this 2-3 weeks after this post. It was still ok but was better fresh. I wouldn't pay a premium for it. The barrel qualities just don't last as long with that beer I suppose.
