    For the bottle share I should have Oud 15, 2010 Darkness, Mother Earth Silent Night, Colossus, maybe a Freetail sour or something else.

    I hear there will be Cantillons, Cascades, Black Tuesday, and plenty of others. Sounds like it will certainly hold its own against last year's bottle shares.

    Wondering about bottle limits and pricing. I am guessing bottle limits will be played by ear, but curious on price of CC7 and the Berliner. Monk and Oil were 16 in the past I believe.

    ...and cue the line for calendar pages.
     
  8. When do they open tomorrow? Will people be able to still get bottles if you show up at 10am? These guys seem a bit challenged on communicating any details about their event.

    How deep into the calendar pages are they? I won't be heading down till morning.

    Same here. Trying to get an idea if it's worth driving down.

    I *think* they're in early March but I didn't check so take that with a grain of salt. Not a huge crowd so I think anyone still considering the trip would be okay.

    Hearing great things of Cuvee 7 via Untappd. Why have I never made the trip to Jackie O's?

    Failure.

    To help JR out with determining his location: two doors down from Jackie O's with a bunch of drunk motherfuckers finishing off some White Chocolate.

    Thanks b-rad. We're almost there, roads in nelsonville suck. Just saw a semi rear end a jeep. We weren't expecting bad weather, drive safe!

    Bummed I'm unable to make it out there today. :(

    If there are any leftover bottles of Oil or CC7 after the initial run through the calendar pages and a Columbus-based BA is willing, shoot me a BM. I'd be happy to pay or trade for them.

    I hope everyone who is down there has a good time....I attended for the first time last March and had a blast!

    It was announced on the blog in one of the updates, but yeah it's very cool. Non infected bourbon berry grove, yum.

    Someone that actually wrote them down can confirm or deny later, but if my memory hasn't completely crapped the bed on me, I believe it was $12 - Berliner, $14 Oil, $16 Monk, $18 Cuvee.

    Whoops, I only saw the outside breweries cellar list.

    That's what I remember.

    ^Thanks!

    And, DAMN!, did I think I was happy when I came home after the last release! This time I got to run the gamut of release experiences, from line waiting, to calendar page getting (when you get there, not after wandering around like an idiot), to drinking tap brews, to the new facility, to the bottle share, to the breakfast, to release process. Sure seems like I was down there longer than the 22+ hours I was in town with all the fun jammed in there.

    I can't believe the stuff with which I came home. (And if the released beers weren't enough, the vintage bottles were amazing! I'd say I was bummed about so many I missed, but I still can't believe what I did get.)

    So many thanks to Brad, Art, and the rest of the Jackie O's staff. Much fun was once again had and I'm so glad (so much) of my money went to support this incredible brewery (and group of people). As Jim mentioned on the microphone (and while I don't have anywhere near the brewery exposure that he does), you could never want for a better group of people. Everyone, in my 2 experiences there, has been more than cheery and helpful.

    I can't wait until the next release, but one of these times, I'm going to make it down there just to spend some time slowly perusing the tap list without any other distractions.

    Thank you for a great day of beer enjoyment Jackie O's!

    Wow, what a fun release. I'd like to thank Brad, Art and the whole gang for a great event! It wouldn't have been anything without you all making it flawless. I can't wait to see how amazing this Oil is a few years down the road.

  30. We had a fantastic time. Enjoyed the corned hash, I drank every beer on the menu, had a great time talking to Sean and Brad. Got to take my Canon 6d out for its first spin as well!

    Great time. Nuted [sic] Birck Kiln is getting even better as it soaks. Raspberry Berliner was damn tasty. Crowd, such as it was, was excellent. Plus having a beer in the taproom at the brewery while Brad and Art and company are knocking about in the spotless beautiful new facility was wonderful. Didn't stick around for a whole lot of the tasting, but got to try a few gems. Fantastic couple of days.
