    If those that haven't been added to the FB group (there is an actual ASS closed group with updates and whatnot), feel free to pm me your info and I'll try to get you added. It's only for members.

    I don't use FB, so I'm assuming all of the relevant info on this FB society group will make its way out into public domain like this thread.

    Chase has said he'll communicate important info via email to all ASS members.

    Not yet. Chase is probably busy celebrating the Oklahoma governor's signing alcohol reform legislation.

    What does everyone think about the upcoming releases? I had the opportunity to try Foeder Gold and Cerise. Both were amazing and it looks like the others are going to be just as amazing.

    I based my membership on the Foeder Gold alone! I've since had the Cerise & Western Culture and was blown away by the complexity of both of them. Great things to come from Chase & AS. Cheers! :slight_smile:

    We get 2 bottles of the 4 membership beers, with the option to buy additional beers up to the member limit? So we get 2 Raspbarrel with the option to buy 2 more?
     
  15. jrodbeer

    jrodbeer Initiate (60) May 26, 2015 Oklahoma

    Raspbarrel has the option to buy 4 additional.

    Western Culture 2 + 2 option
    Sherry WC 2 + 2 option
    Foedre Cherise 2 + 10 option (this beer is outstanding, only one of the membership beers I've had and I love it)
    Raspbarrel 2 + 4 option

    No included bottles of Foedre Gold & Money Blend, but the option to buy a case (12) of each.

    I really enjoyed Foeder Gold and Cerise. Raspbarrel and Cranbarrel are simply incredible. As they warmed up they were both amazing. Perfect amount of pucker with perfect amount of the respective fruit lacing. Can't wait to open one of my bluebarrels. Same with the western cultures (including sherry barre).

    I got to sample most of them at the society party last night & nearly all of them exceeded my expectations. I couldn't stop drinking the Foeder Gold or the Cerise. The other fruit beers just need a little bottle conditioning time. Just my 2-cents. Cheers! :slight_smile:

    Raspbarrel and Cranbarrel were great. Cranbarrel taste like Oceanspray Cranberry juice.

    Party was nice but only having one line for pours was a little frustrating. Everything else was great though. Really liked the IPA.

    Yeah, it's great that Oklahoma can finally have these type of events, but obviously the breweries aren't set up for these things just yet. I know Chase is looking at options for a new place though.

    Had the Foeder Gold and Cerise from bottles and have to say the Cerise was great. Terpy Citra also good

    I thought the line moved really well, considering there was only one. Having Chase just hand out a free Terpy to those waiting in line, didn't suck either.

    Made two trips out on Saturday. Great beer, and great time. The Uber drivers dropping me off, and picking me up were all confused. It was their first time they had been out there. One guy told me he was sure to have his gun with him heh. I wish I had picked up more Cerise and Terpy.

    Tulsa was really cool. Nicer and bigger than I thought it would be. It was strange/funny that the 'high point' beers were only sold in liquor stores. I was hoping pick some stuff up on my way out on Sunday. But overall, seem like a city on the way up. Beautiful land and hills out there as well. Not sure how tech jobs are out there, but it could be a place Id be interested in moving to if the job market was good.

    How available are the beers at the brewery? Is this like Side Project yet (get it on the release date or don't get it at all)? I'm in Arkansas and will be in Tulsa in a few weeks. Thanks!

    It seems so far they are posting bottles on the blog, and maybe facebook
    https://americansolera.com/blogs/news

    It seems - smaller batches seem to be member only, and a portion of the larger batches are held back for the public.

    For example, this past weekend - Foeder Gold, Foeder Cerise, and Money Blend were for sale along with 4-packs of Terpy Citra.

    I personally really enjoyed the Cerise on tap. Wish I had maxed my allotment. And if Lone Wolf food truck is there, its fantastic.

    Gold, Cerise, Money Blend and potentially Raspbarrel will be available to be taken home. All (besides Money Blend) are on draft as well. The rest of the bottles are society only.

    Keep in mind the place is very small. Oklahoma laws have only allowed breweries to do this for 3 weeks now so none of the breweries were set up for large crowds. You also need to check the hours because the week day hours don't start until 5:00.

    Be sure o check out the Prairie Brewpub and Roosevelts as well while you're here.

    Incredible list of beer, incredibly slow service. If Roosevelts is busy, I highly recommend skipping.
