    Another case ... but why pay for shipping when I can pick it up at the brewery and stop at De Garde on the way?

    When I emailed him my contact info I asked where I was on the list and he had told me:
    "You are number 223 on the list, which almost ensures you will receive beer."
    I have yet to receive a call FYI, so looks like it's just taking plenty of time to get through his list.

    I wouldn't worry too much...they've had enough the last year or two to offer people 2 cases each, and are doing it again this year. Something tells me that if they didn't have enough to get through the list them wouldn't offer every the opportunity to buy two cases.

    Got a call from Ken about 45 mins ago but missed the call so waiting to hear back from him. He's an awesome guy and things have gone very smoothly ever since they moved to the email system.

    I didn't email until 10/17 and received my call the other day.

    In fact, I missed his first call because I wondered why Oregon was calling me (oops!) and then answered his 2nd call 1.5 hours later.

    Thanks Ken!

    Hoping to get a call. I originally emailed on 10/1. I received a follow up email on 12/2 for details for potential shipping. No call yet. I got one last year, and knew it took a few days for Ken to get through them all. Hoping for the same result this year. Just sent Ken a follow up from the time stamped original. Not sure if they go by date, name, etc.

    I also emailed them on 10/1 and got a follow up email on 12/2, and just confirmed my order a little while ago. He was still working through the list and I know it normally takes him a few days (since he has to wait for people he left messages for to call him back), so I wouldn't sweat it yet.

    I wish I could afford to drop $240 on a case of beer, but in the meantime I'll wait for moas single bottle sales at my local bottle shops. Pelican always says they're going to sell out, but year after year the local bottle shops always have singles for sale.

    Got my case on Tuesday this week. Also had the 2013 on draught about 2 weeks ago as well, just before the bottles released. It is fantastic (on draught at least) and I'd say better than last year. A fantastic beer.

    Just opened one. It tastes beautiful right out of the bottle. Just like it always has. With this and plenty of BCBW, I have just what I need for the winter.

    What's the consensus on MoaS in general - to cellar or not to cellar? I had 2013 on draft and it was absolutely wonderful, but I'm not sure when to pop my bottle.

    Check the reviews for some opinions. I think it is great up to at least 3 years. Fresh it is just a bit boozier.
