    Anyone actually pick one up yet? Do we know if it's still part of the original 480 allotment or is this a different batch?

    Also any update if it's sold out yet?

    Friend picked one up, #136/480

    Said it looked like there was a fair amount left. I would assume the same batch since it's out of the same amount of bottles.

    My fiance was down there.. so she rolled up to grab one.

    There were about 12 people ahead of her and more behind her when she got hers.

    Pretty impressive for an hour before I got mine (4:10ish) at the first release.. imagine it won't last long.

    Just heard from a friend that it's still available as of 15 minutes ago.

    FYI: they're selling them chilled

    Info from an employee at FFF: They are selling the rest today, and it will sell out today. They do not have plans to brew this again for a long time

    just picked up a bottle and was told the exact same thing. the employee didn't seem too happy and was confused about the "miscommunication" that occurred last week.

    Just got back from the FFF Brewpub and scored one. Showed up last Tuesday about 40 mins. after they sold out due to traffic. There were about 15 cases left (9 bombers apiece) as of about 3 p.m. I got 251/480, so it appears it is the same batch.

    My buddy just happened to be driving through the area today on his cross country road trip moving back to California and stopped there for lunch cause I told him to get some Dreadnaught on tap. He sends me a picture with bottle 248 on it. Sometimes its cool to be in the right place at the right time. All I thought I was going to get was a tshirt.

    Now I have to decide whether or not to keep this one chilled...

    I was standing right outside the door when they sold out last week. It did not bother me at the time as a friend of mine did manage to pick one up. We ended up drinking it on Sat...needless to say, I had to grab another.

    Even though it was sold chilled, I am still thinking about cellaring this one for a while. Thoughts?

    How "chilled" are we talking? That bottle looks like it has a lot of condensation on it, so I'd guess it was probably chilled to well under 50 degrees, almost too chilled if you ask me. I'd venture a guess to say you're probably okay to let it warm up to proper 50-60 degree cellar temps and still be okay.

    Why do people still believe this?

    It will be fine.

    Also if anyone hasn't guess already they're sold out. Not sure the exact time but had someone go there around 3:30 or so and it was gone.

    Lol. There were about 15 left at 515. Probably sell out by 600.

    The aging question had more to do with the Brett and how it develops over time...not the chill factor; a little ignorant with the style.

    To bad I missed out on this. Would have really liked to snag a bottle. Not heading up to the brewpup till Thursday though. O well

    Side note: Did they have cases of Zombie Dust for sale by chance?

    That's funny. Either the friend of a friend who told me they ran out around 3:45 is an idiot or they cut off sales for a bit or something. 90% sure the guy was just dumb.

    llckeller03 Jan 20, 2012 Illinois

    No Zombie as of now, not sure what's going on but it has not been in stock as often as it used to be.
    Go figure, I need 4 cases of it and they dropped the limit to 2 per person.

    Let's hear from those that may have actually drank their bottles. Thoughts? Still only one review out there.

    I was able to score a bottle and plan on posting a review. Unfortunately the review won't come until September because I'm opening this beer for my birthday. Now the hard part is waiting another 6 weeks :)
