I'm not sure whether the Kriek bottle was 6 years old, and/or whether you had had the bottle
6 years as well....
I know it's so very hard to resist buying when you see some very tempting looking beers that
maybe you haven't yet tasted, or haven't tasted for many years! But having too many in stock
ensures some are maybe going to be past their best when you finally get the opportunity to
taste them! I still have exactly 300 bottles in stock, which will take me at least another 12
months to get through, so no doubt many new beers will be available in that period so how do
I resist them so that I can finally catch up!!!
I much prefer having around 50 bottles in stock, so that I am not having to worry about
any next batch ordering-delivery time involved, and can also taste new brews quite quickly
following their release and availability, and subsequent purchase.
I find it hard enough keeping up with just Belgian brews so it must be extremely hard
for you as you regularly taste beers from all over the world!!!
