  1. Extreme Beer Fest had a 1/2 keg of 1996 at it...It was quite sublime. If I could get my f-ing old Iphone to power up, I would show you all the pic of the keg (I worked that fest so I took tons doing inventory)

    i got some in a trade as extras. not sure if it is ever coming, some lawsuit over the name or something.
     
  9. Its all over WNY now SN settled the lawsuit been for sale hear since early December.
     
  10. If any Chico locals have heard anything about the release please let me know! :D
     
  11. Please let ALL of us know !!!
     
  12. I was just at the brewery and there were no bottles nor was it on tap. Tomorrow I am taking the tour and will ask about the status.

  13. I was at the brewery today they are pushing ruthless rye, release party Jan 6th. I'm guessing this will come out in February.
     
  14. Went on a tour last week. Apparently, it is still on for late Jan.

    FYI: during the tour, while you are in the mashing room, there is a bottle in the room (as of 12/29/12) with tinted glass that you can see. Not much but me and my lady excited.
     
  15. According to my beer guy he's getting some on Friday. Don't know how legit it is, but he said its being distributed in California at least in the next week.
     

  16. Maybe so on the 1996 being draft only. I can confirm a keg was at Brouwers Hardliver in 2010.
     
  17. Corked and caged
    Better be anyways

    I was there too. That was 1 of only 2 kegs of the stuff left at SN. And it was sttill hoppy.
     
  19. Are you talking about the fest 2 years ago? I thought that was a 94 bigfoot. I don't remember one last year.

    2011 but and it was 1996 vintage - I just checked my beer list from the event.
     
  21. There was no vintage Bigfoot last year. Two years ago they brought a keg of 96 Bigfoot, and the year before SN sent their last keg from 1994.

    Hello I heard from a local store that it will hit the shelfs soon and be very limited. Just curious about the different barrels does that mean there will be different releases depending on which type of barrel it was aged in ?
     
  23. If I recall correctly, I heard it's all gonna be mixed into 1 final blend. So there should only be 1 release, but that could've changed

    A buddy of mine opened a 1990 last weekend at an event of mine. We drank that side by side with a 2000 old numbskull I had been saving. They were both still phenomenal.

    No, it was released just without a dated crown (see previous page of this thread for pictures).

    What's the bottle count? Just wondering?
     
  29. However many 750s you can make with 100bbl.

    Just 4. I figure that will do me good for a while.

    So this is or is not making it to shelves?
     
  32. It is not, therefore no one should seek it out. Lol :)
