Season 2, Episode
21 – This week, we crack open The Lost Abbey
Ultimate Box Set and sample Tracks 1-6.
This week we’re [stage] diving into what is quite possibly one of
the most sought after items in the world of craft beer, The Lost
Abbey Ultimate Box Set. There have been talks to open this box set
on the show since the beginning of Four Brewers, and now we are
finally delivering with this two part Box-Set-blowout-bonanza.
Given the intensity and quantity of the 13 beers in the set, we
decided to split the Box Set between two episodes. This episode is
focusing on “Tracks” 1-6, and next week’s will feature the final
six Tracks, 7-12. The “Bonus Track”, Track #13, will be a
Patreon-only episode, exclusively for our Patreoneers
on Patreon. If you’re not a supporter, maybe consider

If you’re unfamiliar with The Ultimate Box Set, it’s essentially 13
beers that were blended and bottled in 2012 by The Lost Abbey.
Each beer was inspired by different a rock & roll song and beers
were released every month-ish, with the final Box Set made
available to purchase in November of 2012 to lucky individuals who
won the opportunity to purchase one. Each winner could purchase up
to two Box Sets, and that’s how John acquired his (this is his Box
Set, by the way. Thanks, John!). Local
beer geek and friend, Kasey
Spatz, offered John the Box Set, so without her this show
wouldn’t be possible. Thanks, Kasey!
