    FYI - this is NOT out yet.

    According to their Twitter feed "an unknown future date."

    I'll be there the day it's released buying my limit. Sometimes it's nice to live in Maine. :)

    And yes...I will be open to trading some...provided the per person allocation is greater than one.

    I previously received emails from them when they released their one-offs... Apparently I have missed a lot of releases. Is this something they post of Facebook/Twitter now instead?

    Will do. I currently have access to Coolship Resurgam, but multiple trades have my finances spread pretty thin. Hopefully I can still get some for you in a couple of weeks or so.

    Typically they email about the pre-scheduled, one-off, one-day releases that come with a release "event". These have been sours/wilds, but NOT coolships.

    The coolships have been in much smaller quantities, and they're not one-offs, so no release event, it's just placed in the store on a random day with a tweet that morning. They're using the official Allagash twitter for this now, rather than Rob's or Jason's as in the past. Also, Facebook.

    FV13 is yet another variation, pre-announced release to distribution with the in-store release hinted at but not officially announced until that morning.

    I doubt we'll see release "events" until the expansion is finished. They have no space for crowds now, and it's only going to get worse before the new tasting room is done.

    Does anyone know what beer Allagash has available for sale in bottles at the brewery right now. I looked at their website but failed. TIA.

    Coolship Resurgam / FV 13/ House Beer are all there as of friday. Along with the typical year round releases.

    As for upcoming events. I talked with a few people at Allagash and I think they are enjoying the "silent" releases. Gives the locals a chance to come and grab a bottle within a week or so, rather than having a huge line of people buy everything at once. Being a local I appreciate the silent releases too...

    This sounds pretty interesting. I've never had a spontaneously fermented beer aged in bourbon. It doesn't necessarily jump out as something that sounds crazy good to me either, though I'll definitely be trying to track down a bottle or two. What other spontaneous/bourbon beers (worth trying) are there?

    New Glarus R&D Bourbon Barrel Kriek...absolutely worth hunting down if you have the ammo to go after it. I wish so much that I had the chance to try more than 2oz of that beer!

    I am pissed I didn't go back to NG at the Great Taste last summer for more pours of that beer. Heard that was the last keg... Yum!

    Who's willing to pick me up a bottle, in exchange for some HF goodies I'll be snagging on my road trip on June 1st?
