Don’t Mind DCist, Life and Limb Is Indeed Almost Gone

lifelimbLooks like DCist cracked their Friday beers early today. Jamie R. Liu posted a story this afternoon linking to a Lagerheads post about the Sierra Nevada-Dogfish Head collaborations "Life and Limb" and "Limb and Life" — from November. As Y&H readers and Twitter followers know, Limb and Life was gone from the face of the earth (or at least D.C.) before Thanksgiving, and Life and Limb is close behind.

But Liu's story describes both beers (complete with text creatively adapted from the press release) as though they were just released — and further confuses readers (and commenters) by pointing them to stores where they can buy them. Note to readers: Life and Limb bottles are extinct. Kegs are all but gone too. The last known keg in D.C. will be tapped at Scion on Monday Sunday.

Confusion settled. Now let's get out of here; it's half past beer o'clock by my watch.

    Not to mention we posted a follow-up stating the all too short life of L&L in the first week of December.

    Although as long as you're bringing up Sierra Nevada, their Torpedo Extra Pale Ale is the beer everyone should be talking about. It's great that Sierra Nevada and Dogfish Head got together for a couple collaboration beers, but the most surprising and interesting new beer from Sierra Nevada is Torpedo. I can't get over how well balanced and delicious that beer is.
