That is an expensive haul. I've had most of those, except maybe the Radeberger. Good beers, but I bet that Czechvar is going to be skunk city. Pilsner Urquel was smart to start packaging in brown bottles; it's made a world of difference.

Man, I need to find a source to try more commercial beers! The only ones there I've had are the Ayingers, the Weihenstephan, and the Urquell.

WV sucks for beer shopping; I think AB has most of the state on lockdown, as far as distribution goes. I can be in PA, MD, or VA in a matter of minutes though, I need to scout for beer stores in other states.

Absolutely. The last time I had Urquell, I had a local store order me an entire case since they stopped stocking it. Turned out it was the new packaging, and I was blown away. Judging by the expiration date, I don't think it was more than two weeks old when I got it, and it was night and day from when I had tried it previously.

I love PU in the new 0.5l cans. Every one I've had has been extremely fresh and wonderful tasting. I hope the ones in the picture are too.
