Beer Temple owner Christopher Quinn has been using rare brews to build a name for himself since he and his wife, Margaret, opened the craft-beer store at the beginning of the year—and it's working. On opening day he offered samples of Westvleteren XII and Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout (two of the rarest beers in the world) from his private stash; for the official grand opening in February he pulled out all the stops, giving out samples of more than 30 unusual and hard-to-find specimens, including Sam Adams Utopia, Bells Batch 9,000 and 10,000, Goose Island Bourbon County Bramble Rye, and Three Floyds cognac-barrel-aged Dark Lord with chiles.
