I don’t normally cellar wine, but I do cellar beer. I’ve been storing Sierra Nevada’s BigFoot barley wine forever. It’s normally in the 10% range so holds up to time. When I get together with my beer geek friends we’ll do a five or six year flight tasting. I also have several 2010 Dogfish Head World Wide Stouts (@18% ) It’s a real sipper
@capnjb I’ve had some really good aged beers. I didn’t know this was possible until my daughter started working at a WOB and she got very knowledgeable about it. The oldest one I tried was 10 years old and tasted like Sherry. Very little carbonation left. My understanding is you have to know which ones will age well-as not all of them will?
@arielleslie We use to be in the same boat. Bought a 240 bottle wine fridge, filled it (thanks Woot!), now have 2 lockers at a local offsite wine storage as well which are at about 90% capacity… it is a very slippery slope!
@arielleslie That’s what I said too. Then Wellington would come up, so we stacked a few cases in the closet in the basement bedroom. Then WineSmith, more of the same, then Pedroncelli, then Scott Harvey, then Haywood… then I was in trouble because our guest bedroom couldn’t be used… very slippery slope!
Was thinking about purchasing a wine refrigerator as I have no basement. Something likely in the 150ish bottle range. Any recommendations on brands and/or where to look and learn more about them? Thanks in advance!
