    Yeah... If you're close to San Diego. The 10 hour drive isn't worth it for me.

    Anyone know if this will be a brewery only release? Or will we see bottles in stores?

    After purchasing just one bottle of Black Tuesday I'll have to make sure to stock up on at least 3 of these. Are last years releases worth the price?

    The regular speedway stout is fantastic, probably one of my favorite year round releases.

    Nice. Doesn't look like it's sold out yet either.

    What happens if we buy another 4 under a friend's name?

    that friend would have to pick it up. And you would need them to buy it, as it shows the buyer and attendee

    Should the names be under the order Confirmation? I'm not seeing it. I picked print at home. Did I screw up?
     
  23. DougOLis

    DougOLis Initiate (185) Aug 15, 2008 California

    I'm just saying, it asks you to enter in the buyer name. Couldn't you easily just put the other person's name? I feel a little skeezy about doing that but maybe not skeezy enough to not do it.

    Yeah, infinitely better than the release a couple of years ago. I'm still bitter about being like 20 people away from when they switched it to fewer bottles.

    Much better handled than the Black Tuesday release. Can't say I'm surprised.

    How, exactly? I had the same experience getting both beers. Fast, easy, online with local pickup before the end of the ear.

    How is Alesmith's better?

    yeah it could work, but since the ticket list a buyer and an attendee it might have a problem. If you created a fake (or shell) account for your friend it would probably work

    I'm sure kojevergas is going to reply, but, and I'm just guessing here Server reliabilty/response time may the reasoning behind that statement.

    FWIW, I agree, both releases were easy for me as well, but I would concede that BPT is more reliable then the Bruerys site. But, also, FWIW, the BT release was plastered all over BA for weeks before the release, and in contrast, this release was low key by contrast, so less traffic too.

    I wonder what happens to the bottles "surrendered back to Alesmith" when not picked up by the deadline
     
  37. nanobrew

    nanobrew Initiate (0) Dec 31, 2008 California

    probably held onto for special events. I have gone to Alesmith events in the past with vintage bottles of BA Old numbskull and Wee Heavy

    edit: well I guess not necessarily vintage bottles as they have not released a BA version of those in a long while. Anyone have news on that? I think BA WH might be my favorite of their BA beers
     
  38. MacNCheese

    MacNCheese Initiate (0) Dec 10, 2011 California

    Agreed, the proxie/shipping in CA that Bruery does makes it a helluva lot harder. BASS still one of the best beers out there.

    The BA Wee Heavy they released back in 2011? 2010? was awesome. Despite not particularly caring for normal Wee Heavy it is onne of my favorite barrel aged beers I've ever had. That one was actually a really smooth release too; it was nice to get something without a ton of hype around it.
