    How much M was made? They are making 15 bbls of this. It seems like a lot to be considered ultra rare but I suppose that depends on how much they keg. The beer sounds good though.

    No beer made now will.hopefully get to Dave or M status. That doesnt mean beers as good or better within style wont be brewed.

    No. But that won't stop people from trying to treat it as if it was.

    The act of asking the question also answers it.

    No way bourbon oak barrels > red wine oak barrels, people who think this is going to be the new M are caught in the hype.... Just like bolt cutter was going to be the new king Henry, what a joke.

    In a radio interview last month, the PR rep for MS said the 3000 recipe was based on M. Obviously, there will be differences.

    From MS Facebook/Twitter:
    3000 is scheduled to be released Jan. 25 in Anchorage at $15/bottle at a meet the brewers event at a local store. When it is released at the brewery, there will be a 6 bottle limit. (Berserker was a 2 bottle limit at the brewery upon release).

    Berserker was also distro'd though and 3000 will only be in sold in AK. Probably the reason for the bottle limit differences.

    You're missing my point, the act of asking this question and the pretrades means people are getting their hands on the beer. The reason beers like M or Partridge become so coveted is because nobody thought to do that when they had the chance.

    Wait wasn't Cherry rye the new M and Kopi Luwak the new Dave?

    Goddamnit I am confused.

    So 3000 is the new Loerik then, right?

    Fuck if I know.

    As such, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been hit up for obtaining bottles of M. At one point, the beer made news by commanding over $1,540 dollars for a single bottle on eBay. People still rave about the beer today, and somehow the brewery’s three-thousandth batch of beer, simply called 3000, seems to be related to it, at least in hype, although the two are fundamentally different beers.

    Both are Belgian barley-wine style ales, although Midnight Sun’s Barb Miller says this might be somewhat of a misnomer. “There really is no such thing as a true Belgian barley wine; they don’t have that style over there, or at least didn’t historically; 3000 is more like a Belgian quadruple with that big, dark, chewy mouthfeel,” she says.

    Pre-Trade value torpedoed.

    It may be that they are using a Belgian strain of yeast. Sometime "Belgian style" something is used when the only thing Belgian about it is the yeast used.

    I'm going off what was said about M in the homebrew forums, a clone that I hope to one day attempt, but apparently M has 4 different strains of yeast used 2 of them Belgian. I read somewhere of 3000 is using 2 different strains, so with that I would say it could be more then half of what M is.

    Loerik was brilliant, but M is the one beer from last weekend that I'm really hoping to try again. Other than the ones I've already made arrangements for. :cool:

    If me and Overlord only held on to our original MtG cards we would be freaking rich. Who would of thought being a nerd in 1993 could have led to retirement 20 years later.

    I have nearly worthless complete Pokemon card sets and very rare cards sitting in my closet, asking me why I didn't sell them for 4-5 figures 10 years ago. Hindsight is a bitch
