    In response to Natalie's FB post, I went to put out my lawn chairs in front of the brewery, and I was already 6th in goddamn line.... Fucking 2013 beer releases....

    Yeah, even if this is only in barrel 6 months, it will need time to be blended and bottled. Early 2014, I'd say.

    We should see more Beat this year. There is a post on their FB page from February 2012 that mentions they had recently done a batch of Sonambic and that it would need a year to age.

    That FB post should have basically no bearing on when you think the next batch of Beat comes out. That's probably destined for B7 or maybe even B8.

    I emailed then last year asking if there would be a 2013 release. The answer was "yes, but no set time frame"

    Last year's release was the best beer event I've been to, I'll be there at 8am again whenever this drops.

  14. On the last Bottom of the Bottom podcast, Greg mentioned that RR will be pouring Beatification at the Farm to Fermentation Festival (Ales for Autism event) on Sun, Aug 18 at Finley Center in Santa Rosa. Maybe we'll see the release soon at the pub?

    No new info AFAIK. The coolship room is empty save for 10 barrels filled 6/15/13, but, again, who knows if that means the next batch is imminent or if they just moved the older ones for shits and giggles? It'll be ready when it's ready, and trust me, when they announce it you'll know. BA Mexican Cake has nothing on Beatification for BA shitstorms. I think B5 was worse than the annual DLD forum takeover.

    I hear rumors that they will be pouring Beatification at a local fair/festival in August. Source is a good one, but it isn't guaranteed. Also could mean they are pouring an older batch. Who knows.

    Whoops. Must have skipped over that. Yes, that was what I was referring to.

  21. That dude's avatar would be better if he was holding a Pliny (or Beat).
  22. Next time, I will not make the mistake of only buying a case. There is literally no such thing as too much Beat.

    Every year it seems like it gets crazier and crazier too. Hoping it lasts more than a day.

    Well it lasted a few weeks last release.

    It was a really big release though, lets just hope it's the same this time around.

    If they make 12k bottles again then it'll probably last a similar amount of time.

    I was told last time there in march that it is already in bottles conditioning so........
    Whatever that's worth ?

    penniwisdom Initiate (0) California Sep 10, 2010

    Potentially nothing... :(

    A beer should not take 4+ months to condition in the bottle. If it's still trying to carb up at that point it probably never will. Mmmm flat beatification.

    Last batch of beatification was bottled 1/10/12 and released around March 10th or so. 2 months in bottle and it was primo.

    Remember when we were both at Russian River drinking one last March and I told you there was no such thing as too much and you were like nah man too much is too much. :)
  30. I was a lot more broke then. I'd also never had beat before!

    I was a lot more broke after buying 6 cases of Beatification...

    Goodness, and I thought I bought 'too much' with two cases of the last Beatification after two trips to the brewery...

    for sours, carbonation is not the only reason to let a beer sit in the bottle. A lot of my sours do not hit their prime until at least 2 months in bottles, and more around the 4-5month period. I feel like some of the other brewery's problems with sours are because they release them too young. they have that sulfur nasty funky smell

    slight OT, what was the last / what is the next Beat release date?
  37. No release date set yet. It's ready when it says it's ready (just like DDG taking many years). I understand that it is soon though. Hoping for September release.
