    I thought the exact same thing.
  2. Dudes, the Bruery Anniversary beers are brewed using the Solera Method.

    Solera is a process for aging liquids such as wine, beer, vinegar, and brandy, by fractional blending in such a way that the finished product is a mixture of ages, with the average age gradually increasing as the process continues over many years. A solera is literally the set of barrels or other containers used in the process. Products which are often solera aged include Sherry, Madeira, Port wine, Marsala, Mavrodafni, Muscat, and Muscadelle wines; Balsamic, Commandaria, and Sherry vinegars; Spanish brandy; and rums.

    So yeah, the recipes are basically the same but it gets better with each successive release and they decided to have each year named differently instead of just marking the year.

    Bois - it seems like the beer will be aged in Bourbon Barrels, just because that's what it seemed they were alluding to on the podcast referenced here. The other Bois' are probably variations.

    So what I'm getting from this thread is that I should have purchased the Fruet I saw in the store today for $35?
