I haven't really thought about it. But I was just thinking back on the spring of 2012 brews bros community brew we did. I was looking at the recipe yesterday. Anyone remember what it was? I do want to brew a celebratory something for my son that I can keep till his 21st birthday.
When I read this, I flashed back on a couple of the community brews I participated in back in the day. But the one I really remember was the one from Spring 2007. I think it may be one of the best beers I ever brewed!
Here it is (in Green Board color!):
Community Spring Beer, all-grain
OG = 1.055 (@75% efficiency)
IBUs = 40 (but with emphasis on hop flavor and aroma)
Color = Golden (~7-8 SRM)

3.5 pounds Munich Malt

1.25 oz East Kent Golding (5.0%) 10 min [sub: US Golding]

0.75 oz Saaz (5.0%) end of boil [sub: Sterling]
White Labs 029 German Ale/Kolsch -or- Wyeast 2565 Kolsch
Mash grains at 150-155°F (lower for more fermentable drier beer, higher for less fermentable malty beer) for 60 minutes, sparge to collect enough wort to allow for 5.5 gallons after a 60-minute boil. Add first wort hops as soon as runoff begins and follow other hopping as above. Chill to 60°F after boil, oxygenate, and pitch a large yeast slurry. Ferment at ~65°F for 7-10 days (FG ~1.013), transfer and cold condition for ~4 weeks.
Here's the label I made for it:
