    I managed to find some last night, dude just got a case apparently.
    Is this stuff coming back around town, or was he just lucky or something?

    Down here in South Florida.

    I picked up a bottle while I was passing through Daytona Beach this past weekend... Had a few more, so I have no idea if it's been there or not.

    Will this hold up over a few months? I think some bottles from the last batch are still on shelves here.

    Damn I guess it's not as limited as I thought. Good news cuz I love this beer!
    I hope shelves start filling up again. Last time it was around it was gone in a flash.

    Bomber? Did they change the bottle format? Thought these were 750ml champagne bottles.....

    Bombers refer specifically to 22oz bottles, not 750ml (~25oz). Just sayin'.....

    some people refer to all "big" bottles as bombers, regardless of the actual ounces.

    Sure, some people do......incorrectly, however.

    I think that it's an important distinction that should be corrected as it's a difference of 3+ ounces between the two.

    Volume is pretty key when discussing the specifics on certain bottles.

    this is pretty much nothing but semantics at this point, but it's pretty simple: when breweries offer a "small" package and a "big" package, the bigger one is often referred to as a bomber. there is no technical definition that states that a "bomber" has to be 22 ounces. now if someone called a 750mL a "22 ounce package" well then they'd be wrong.

    So by your logic, a magnum could also be referred to as a "bomber" then.....yes?

    I mean, it's a "big" package. Especially when compared to a 12oz bottle.

    There's a difference and it's significant enough to warrant its own designation.

    Just because some people incorrectly refer to these volumes doesn't mean that it's as interchangeable as you'd like it to be.

    Cucumber in a bottle. Nasty in my opinion.

    I'm a bit late to the game here, but this beer sounds spectacular.

    It's not listed on Cigar's website...when is it brewed and does it ever make its way up to Virginia?

    It is, and don't hold your breath, its prety popular down here and most likely wont make it that far...

    I will have to disagree with you here. Cucumber can degrade into some cardboard/oxidized flavors. caveat that I haven't aged one out but I think this particular beer is best consumed fresh.

    You are 100% right. This debate reminds me of when people like to say that grammar and spelling don't matter because you get your point across regardless of how poorly spelled and punctuated something is, which, as an English major (yes, I'm sure I'll get a great job out of college, thanks for your concern), bothers the piss out of me because it is NOT the case. These distinctions, while small, really do matter because they have the potential to cause miscommunication, and when it is such a simple fix, why not just do it?

    I said a few months, not a few years. After all, it's not an IPA.

    It's brewed in late spring/early summer. And pretty much no chance that you'll ever see it up in VA, CCB can't keep up with demand in FL and have pretty much stopped shipments to the other states that they currently distribute to, and VA is not one of them from what I understand.

    Yeah, I was able to get a couple that I otherwise would not be able to try. And shipping wasn't too horrible. Thanks so much!

    Do you prefer cucumbers in the can? :D I kid I kid, this is definitely a flavor that can be very polarizing

    You are right, problem being that some of the crew around here might take a few months to mean much longer. I liked both tap and bottle but tap seemed much more fresh and vibrant. I think I drank the bottle about 2 weeks after the initial release.

    Cucumber Saison won a bronze at GABF on Saturday! And it was by far the hugest hit at our booth during the fest, so much so that we ran out of it on Friday before we won the medal.
