Big Bottle Birthday

Inebriated adventures are in abundance around here.  Much so that I quickly get behind in blogging all the shenanigans.  Though my Big Bottle Birthday happened nearly two months ago, I had to post a couple of pics of that epic mid-week night.  Among other bottled beers we consumed that evening, the main event was a 6L bottle of Duvel:
Of course, we had help from family and friends.   Soon after dusting the bottle, the party got so out of hand that they had to shut down the grid.  The neighborhood went dark and we were forced to continue drinking games under candle light.
As to be expected, the 2007 Duvel was really good.  It was picked up at Hi-Time Wine Cellar in Costa Mesa, CA.  Hi-Time is a gem in Orange County and while this particular bottle wasn't inexpensive, they typically have reasonable prices and a great selection.  Big bottled beer is not economical, but hey, it was my birthday!   What does one do with an empty 6L bottle?  Not sure.  Got ideas?


  1. ummmm, bottle homebrew in it?

    There's got to be a way. I have a huge bottle like your that I'd like to use for that same purpose.

  2. Thought about that. I'd have to cork and cage it. Gotta find someone to borrow that stuff.
    I have a 15 gallon oak barrel that I need to fill soon and the Duvel bottle may be a good final destination. Massive bottles are good for that special brew for a special occasion. Like, ummm, a birthday!
