The master wordsmiths masters Roy & HG introduced me to the word Penultimate. Only those guys to could use a word like that!
People use 'penultimate' to mean “the very last” or “the very best.” They're wrong. ... But penultimate means “next to last” or “second to last.” It's probably because it adds an emphatic extra syllable to the word ultimate that people think it somehow means “more” than ultimate—but it really means less.
Would make a good name for a beer.

Eg, Penultimate Lager - you always have one more to go.
