Not sure if the claim in the listing is correct, but either way damn thatís old. And the "buy it now" price is a modest $155,000. And no. Iím not the seller. I just thought the bottle was cool and wanted to share. Not as cool as say buying a home in San Antonio, but cool nonetheless.

WTF, no bids yet???

Come on people this is a no brainer. This bottle can only get older and therefore only increase in value. Now if that African businessman will just send me my check for the money he needs me to hold in my bank account for him Iíll be able to buy this.

The starting bid is at $89,900. Now if it was $89,899, Iíd be all over it.

Is the liquid line really that high up on the neck, or am i seeing things?? I cant imagine a beer that old not losing much more to evaporation. Also, wasnt there a thread about this beer a few years ago? Maybe i am wrong--and certainly too lazy to look--but the name arctic ale seems to ring a bell for me.

Iím waiting for DFH to buy it so they can do detailed analysis of the yeast, malt, etc and then brew an overly sweet barley wine and charge $30/bottle based on this beer.

Sure was but Iím also too lazy to find it... Though I remember it going for the same price years ago? Guess the rareness hasnít increased over the past 2 yrs
