2003 DFH 120 Minute IPA
« on: August 17, 2009, 04:13:34 PM »
Corked/Caged 750ml bottle from the original run.


Is that worth anything?  It's been in buried in my cellar for quite sometime now - is that the type of thing I'd be able to sell if I wanted to?

I'd think people would pay a nice penny for it on eBay.  Make sure to go on about how it was the first run, etc.

This is true.  He may be the best buyer option.

That's about 25oz. 12oz bottles are $10 now at Binny's here in Chicago - link.

So the base price is $20. Considering the age, I'd say you could put on $2 a year or so, so that's $32. The schtick value of the "first run" thing should add something too. Call that $8-10, so around $40 would be my guess. I suspect you might be able to get decently more though.


If you can't get at least that much, I'd say invite a few friends over and start drinking.

i'd keep it in the cellar for twenty years and see if it's worth anything to anyone then.

I have one of these in my cellar too!

Probably just gonna wait for a tasting when I have 5 or 6 people to share it. Wonder how it will be at this stage. Haven't really seen any reports of people drinking aged 120 in awhile.

I'd love to try this!!! I always love it much better fresh but I've wanted to try an aged bottle. I have a 12oz from '06 I'm sitting on right now to see if the years are good to it.

I think the 750's of 120 Min are actually from 2002.  I have a few 12 ouncers with 03 notched on the label.  Unless both formats were put out in 2003?

I drank a 25oz 120 about 2 years ago, horribly oxidized and undrinkable IMHO.
