    So happens, mocha, and CR first month? I hope not.
  3. Was sounding like So Happens would be a Fall release. Think the membership mentioned that the bottle included will be available later in the year.

    Mocha Wednesday are part of the initial allocation. I think Mocha Wednesday will be a January release, but my guess is that CR is from 2012.
  5. According to the 2014 RS welcome email, the 2014 CR will be on sale in January.

  6. I'm very excited to be perusing this thread for information as opposed to jealous rage.
    So my wife got me a membership for Christmas, but I haven't received a welcome email or anything. Any idea how this works for signing into the site? I feel like she must have used her email address or something.
  7. You do have to create an account when signing up for a membership, so it's probably under her email address. After you login to the account she created you can change the email address and confirm that you want to receive emails from the Bruery and then you should be good to go. Whenever the Bruery puts RS beers online you'll have to login to your account to be able to see and buy them.

  8. The Cognac Anniversary, from what I read, is HS only.

    When do accounts change. Mine is still showing RS and I should be HS.

    The Bruery is closed today, so my guess that it would happened tomorrow. I think we'll also be seeing the first allocations tomorrow or Friday too.

    Accounts have been changed. There are no new beers up yet, but you can get some of that sweet, sweet Batch 1000 for $7.99/bottle now!
  12. The Bruery Store has updated and has several things available for the welcome sale for new RS members.
    Xul and Justinsosmart like this.
  13. Initial shipment (RS) is sans pagaie, regular bois, and 2x CR.

    Any of the bois variants worth it? (Welcome sale)

    Interesting...Tumescence sounds delicious, while Smooth Criminal sounds like it could be awesome or could be a full blown dumpster fire. Bois Fume is intriguing, but I'm one of the few who actually liked Smoking Wood.

    But it is so good.... I should just give the Bruery my paycheck now. I Hope they allow a big allotment for it.

    Obviously they're paying attention and trying to give us some more heads up/info ahead of time. Kudos to the RS team at the Bruery for doing so. My one additional wish is that they give us a bit more lead time on the events they plan so I can actually try to get to some this year -- coming from NorCal I actually have to plan a bit to make it :)
  21. My guess is it will either be 4 or 6 for RS, double that for HS.
  22. is Rue D'Floyd going to be a collab with 3 Floyds?
  23. Xul

    Xul Advocate (525) California May 18, 2008

    Yes. They posted a picture last March at 3 Floyds.
  24. I believe it is a collaboration with Floyd Mayweather.

  25. awesome, thanks for the info. Picture doesn't work for me, but may because i'm the lone person on the planet that doesn't do facebook.
  26. 1 bottle will knock your ass out?

    Based on the descriptions, I plan to max out on both mystery beers.

    When they begin releasing stuff like CR, how do you know how many allocations you have? Is it safe to assuming all the stuff on the website right now such as Bottleworks XII and SitR kumquat have no allocations and you can buy as many as you want?
  30. Those have limits on them listed, 2/4 rs/hs respectively I think. CR will probably be 4 or 6 in addition to the allotted 2.

    Melman Savant (250) California Dec 5, 2013

    They send it in an e-mail.

    Bottleworks XII is limit 2
    SitR is limit 2

    CR they said they'd let us know the day it goes on sale (the 7th I'm assuming)

    *edit - it's also on the product page if you click on it.
  32. Are the Chocolate Rains included with membership's 2013 or the new batch?
  33. new batch most likely

    Picked up a sixer on the welcome sale: 2 x Wanderer (missed it at CBS to get Beatification), Oude Tart Cherries, Brandy Bois, Rye Bois, Bottleworks XII. Nice start to Reserve membership.
