Discussion in 'Beer Releases' started by PsilohsaiBiN, Aug 29, 2013.
Oh yeah, almost certainly. Will be nice for people who aren't alcoholics though.
If it means more people get to buy some then I'm all for it. I feel like coffee was easy to get last year in bombers anyway
"vintage" doesn't mean old. It means a specific year.
Wow! With every news the barrels get older and older. Soon we will be talking about 100 year old bourbon barrels.
But it implies that there were 30+ year old Van Winkle releases. And in big quantities at that. Can't recall any. Not saying they don't exist though, but...
Clearly you are very susceptible to clever marketing in commercials from Jim Beam
Not commercials--descriptions on their website and from other sources. It may all be bogus, but any tempering with the wood would still make barrels unusable for aging. I haven't seen the TV spots although I do know that they exist. BTW I've seen similarly bogus claims from breweries about beer, so let's not get carried away there...
Dear Budweiser. Please send Bourbon County and all its' variants to Texas this year. In bottles. Or I will get a group of Texas BAs with a Uhaul and clean out Arkansas. If Arkansas doesn't get any... we keep driving north till we get to Illinois.
Thank you. Love, Rob.
From what I have heard the 2 variants, besides coffee, are backyard rye and coconut (bourbon). If bcbs is released the same time as last year it should be out in the next few weeks!
They said Black Friday.
Do they sell on premise at the brewery, or solely through distributors?
I still don't believe you. (sarc)
I always hate on black friday sending my wife to Target at 4 AM to get gifts for the kids while i go to a liquor store or brewery at 4AM to get beer for myself
I hate black friday shopping in general, but at least I should be off work. I hate missing out on beer releases b/c the beer chasers cleaned out the shops while I was at work.
Bourbon county snozberries brand stout. Heard this from an uncle of a retire middle school teacher, that once heard this from a monkey trainer in Long Island, that knows a guy that bottled on the lines at goose island in 2010. 100% fact, thread closed.
I think the brewpubs usually sell some to-go, but at bar markup. The brewery itself doesn't sell beer.
We don't get that kind of beer here. Move along sir, move along. I heard Tennessee and Bama have a bunch and they don't like it, so they are selling it all at half price to make room for Chellada and Bud Black.
Where is this information? So everything is released the same time this year? BCBS usually hits a few weeks prior to the variants and coffee.
I have heard of the rare rumor, and it has been confirmed to me that they are Extremely old heaven hill barrels, and some are already filled and ready for 2015. Kind of like barley wine is not in pappy, and not called king henry, who knows what this heaven hill aged batch will be called, or how much will be bottled.
200 barrels full.
not sure amount of barrels
maybe you or someone else knows but what does the age of the barrel have to do with anything?
longer the age, more flavor?
I hate myself for reading this thread on a daily basis: so much love for BCBS, so little information
Indicates high quality wood.
We will pillage your BCBS in the name of Davy Crockett and visit your very educational Bill Clinton Presidental Library!
ahhh thank you. Although at this point, wouldn't the majority of the bourbon in the wood be lost?
so, does anybody have any information on what the variants might be this year? sheesh....
at least we aren't talking about trade value yet
I stupidierer for reading this thread, thanks again Chicago!
Hope this helps.....
Well damn. That's so long from now.
I still kind of find it hard to believe. Wonder why they are doing it different this year. Psychologically I find it easier to give them a lot of money over the course of a couple months instead of a lot of money in one day
there better be more Purple Drank BCS or I am going to be upset
What do you mean exactly? If we are talking about the stout, the main variable is how quickly Goose was able to get the barrels from whoever, not how old the barrels are. The sooner the less likely it is for the whiskey to have evaporated.
The age is how long whiskey or bourbon has been aged in the barrel. The longer the aging the smoother the bourbon usually. plus more complex flavor characteristics. when adding the stout, the wood has kept those characteristics and then slowly integrates with the beer while it is aging.
Actually, all of the information is there.
The barrels being spoken of are 30 year old EVAN WILLIAMS barrels. A bourbon for the Japan market.
They could use 30-year Jim Beam barrels for all I care. I don't care about Rare 2.0, what matters is that they make it to King Henry 3.0. There was barely any whiskey flavor left in the barrels by the time King Henry went into them, what matters is 20+ years of aging whiskey and then 2+ years of aging stout in them first. Brand is irrelevant by the time the barleywine goes in.
If they are putting it in 4 packs, im sure they significantly increased production. If it is anywhere close to what the regular bourbon county was last year (even half), Im sure there will be no problem getting it in four packs. I was buying four packs of bourbon county still as recently as 3-4 months ago (for 24.99).
I have some extra 2012 BCBS I put away for a rainy day in case anybody didn't score any. Cheers!
BTW I hear BCBS 2013 tastes AMAZING...super chocolatey and not nearly as hot as last year so it's ready to drink ASAP! Chicago is sooooooo lucky to have this beer whenever it comes out
Well I pretty much just read the first page and skipped to here.
Alls I got to say is we used to get bcbs 4packs in Cali in 2010. I hope they finally bring it back!!
Can't freaking wait! Bourbon County is/was my "religious experience" beer and I can't wait to get my hands on more. Finished my last bottle about three weeks ago.
I need to replenish my stock...
