Budweiser Millenium Edition

My boss at work found this little gem at a garage sale over the weekend:

That’s a Budweiser Millennium Edition collector’s pack: a champagne-style corked bottle of Budweiser along with four nice Pilsner glasses. Still in box, basically untouched.

Apparently this was released in 1999, so this is an 11-year-old bottle of Bud, and who knows what sort of conditions it was stored in. However, we’re planning on opening and tasting this beer later this week, just to see. I’ll blog about it, of course.

We looked on eBay, and while there are people trying to sell these off for $50 and higher, the only two actual completed auctions only went for $19.99 and $29.99. So it’s an interesting piece of (recent) beer memorabilia but not worth much on the open market.

What would you do? Would you open it?
