No proxies... That sucks.
sigh. so close.
It's actually awesome =)
Yeah... If you're close to San Diego. The 10 hour drive isn't worth it for me.
trade some of those beats in your pic for some.
Anyone know if this will be a brewery only release? Or will we see bottles in stores?
Brewery only release. Cheers
Damn, with 15mins left.........the Cat's out on BA!
I thought for sure we'd make it this time.
Only takes 1 knucklehead.
After purchasing just one bottle of Black Tuesday I'll have to make sure to stock up on at least 3 of these. Are last years releases worth the price?
The regular speedway stout is fantastic, probably one of my favorite year round releases.
maybe we should stop posting in this thread and all post in other pacific threads to bury this one
that was easy. nice job Alesmith and BPT
Nice. Doesn't look like it's sold out yet either.
What happens if we buy another 4 under a friend's name?
Smooth as silk.
It's all good, babay babay!
that friend would have to pick it up. And you would need them to buy it, as it shows the buyer and attendee
Well, that was easy. Nice job Alesmith.
Easy peasy. Alesmith going with BPT has been great.
Should the names be under the order Confirmation? I'm not seeing it. I picked print at home. Did I screw up?
I'm just saying, it asks you to enter in the buyer name. Couldn't you easily just put the other person's name? I feel a little skeezy about doing that but maybe not skeezy enough to not do it.
Yeah, infinitely better than the release a couple of years ago. I'm still bitter about being like 20 people away from when they switched it to fewer bottles.
Much better handled than the Black Tuesday release. Can't say I'm surprised.
How, exactly? I had the same experience getting both beers. Fast, easy, online with local pickup before the end of the ear.
How is Alesmith's better?
yeah it could work, but since the ticket list a buyer and an attendee it might have a problem. If you created a fake (or shell) account for your friend it would probably work
No proxies means A LOT less traffic.
winner winner chicken dinner. best release ever
because everything the Bruery does is hype motivated duhh
12x should do.
I'm sure kojevergas is going to reply, but, and I'm just guessing here Server reliabilty/response time may the reasoning behind that statement.
FWIW, I agree, both releases were easy for me as well, but I would concede that BPT is more reliable then the Bruerys site. But, also, FWIW, the BT release was plastered all over BA for weeks before the release, and in contrast, this release was low key by contrast, so less traffic too.
10,000 bottles and yet no one will want to share one haha
that was one of the easiest releases ever... got mine... and still not sold out yet...
Looks like another trip to SoCal is in my immediate future...oh darn
I wonder what happens to the bottles "surrendered back to Alesmith" when not picked up by the deadline
probably held onto for special events. I have gone to Alesmith events in the past with vintage bottles of BA Old numbskull and Wee Heavy
edit: well I guess not necessarily vintage bottles as they have not released a BA version of those in a long while. Anyone have news on that? I think BA WH might be my favorite of their BA beers
Agreed, the proxie/shipping in CA that Bruery does makes it a helluva lot harder. BASS still one of the best beers out there.
Not sure, but they are 100% serious about it with ZERO tolerance. Stupidly, I know from experience.
The BA Wee Heavy they released back in 2011? 2010? was awesome. Despite not particularly caring for normal Wee Heavy it is onne of my favorite barrel aged beers I've ever had. That one was actually a really smooth release too; it was nice to get something without a ton of hype around it.
Separate names with a comma.
