The Beer That Wouldn't Go Away

Not that it's a bad thing in this case. Santa Fe Brewing may not make my favorite beers, but they do a great job with their State Pen Porter (recently rated 93 out of 100 by Draft magazine). In 2008, Santa Fe brewed and bottled 3708 State Pen Imperial Porter (10% ABV) beers in 25.3 oz. bottles as part of their 20th anniversary celebration. In 2010, 3708 bottles are still available for purchase. I'm kidding, of course, but there are still some floating around town. And Quarters on Wyoming at Montgomery has these limited edition, amped-up versions of State Pen for $6.99, down from the usual $11.99 price. I remember liking this beer even as I sweated through a glass of it when Marble had a cask fest in June heat; imagine how good it will be when it is still cold (and the sun has gone down- I don't recommend drinking it in direct sunlight). This one may not be around next winter, so pick up yours at the discounted price at Quarters.

Thanks for the tip, especially since that's my normal stop on the way home!
