    Does anyone know if Resurgam or any other limited release beers are for sale at the brewery? Thanks in advance.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Probably. Resurgum seemed low last week, but they should have a ton of FV13. Just call Friday or before you leave Saturday and they'll tell you what/how much is left

    There is tons and tons of FV13 at the brewery, and the distro'ed product is hitting ME stores this week.

    There were 1000 bottles of FV13 for sale at the brewery and 9000 going out for distribution from what I heard when I was up there last Thursday. Grabbed 3 resurgams and 2 FV's.

    Forget the Twitter re: Coolship Bourbon-aged One - people went running in there after the tweet only to find out it is not even released, and will likely be a fest or "inside" beer like Mattina Rossa.

    Intentionally, this time :)

    Experience says tweets/facebooks/instagrams about releases are clearly state that the product is in the store today....not just a label pic.

    Anyone seen FV13 today outside of Maine?

    As posted previously, it just hit stores in Portland, Maine, a few miles from the brewery, today.

    I'd be very surprised if the magical beer truck reached distant places before the nearby ones.

    Just seeing if anyone's seen it in MA? Wonder if they're waiting till after its tapped at Publick House before releasing bottles from distro to retail? I've heard several different stories from several different people... I'm cornfused!

    It was on tap at Meadhall at the Christmas even, but no sign of it anywhere in bottles or on tap since.

    Also, is that David O. Russell in your avatar or do you just bear a striking resemblance?

    Ha! That's me allright. Had to Google who D.O.R was. I wish I was a famous director, well, maybe.

    Was on tap at Vee Vee a month ago - very tasty.

    Saw it in Maine two weeks ago but I held off buying it since I figured it'd hit MA the same weekend. Weird.

    How is FV 13, Resurgam, and Borubon Barrel One? Down here in VA we only get the shelf stuff. Would love to see it down this way but that would never happen. So, anyone from Maine looking for a trading partner in Va. Or just looking to unload some Coolships? I'd definitely go over $4$ to get some. You guys are very lucky!

    The first two are great. Nobody's had Bourbon Barrel One yet. You will get FV13 in VA, it's going to the full distribution.

    A lot of us do trade (myself included) and I've been swapping Coolships for Hardywood Park and others, but I'm all tapped out on trading $$ for the moment.

    Sounds awesome. Yea it may come down this way but it may be a stretch to get, but I'll keep an eye out. I'm able to get Willaimsburg Alewerks pretty regular but not so much the Hardywood. Plan to get there sooner or later. Well keep me in mind if y'all are ever looking. Thanks for the info too?

    Out of FV13 at the brewery. Less than a case of Resurgam left (limit 4).
    Had an awesome sample of Odyssey (seasonal, just bottled.)

    This Friday I believe. Looking forward to it. This year Simcoe, Cascade and Centennial hops were used, last year was Amarillo, Centennial and Magnum.

    Was that beer good? I don't remember liking it that much and it was really expensive. I only had one glass though maybe my taste buds were off that day or something.

    I never tried it...I just saw the price and walked away...shaking my head in disbelief...muttering obscenities under my breath.

    Yes, this. It was decent but nothing that stood out to me, and expensive compared to other equal or better beers.

    (and I'm not normally one who complains about price / value)

    Resurgam kicked today. Cerise is now up! Red is in the hole.

    The brewery is having a "Spring Cleaning" on Saturday, May 18th which sounds like quite an event with a number of beers making appearences that haven't been seen in quite awhile.
