    i certainly have spent over $30 for a bottle of beer, but if you think about a 4-pack of BCBBW being $20 for twice the beer, it's kinda like :astonished: I would still by this if it was distributed in my area, which it won't be :angry:

    How would you guys compare to some other world class barleywines? Non-bias :slight_smile:

    What's on draft at Humpy's is actually last year's batch. I think everything that was brewed this time went into bottles.

    Anyone know when this will go on sale at the brewery and if it is actually $30? Future SIL lives 5 minutes away and I am looking to make her into a mule when she comes down for the wedding. Thanks

    I've had Dave, M, WH, etc for rare barleywines and pretty much every other highly rated one from the last 6 years...this beer is top 3. It is so damn tasty...I hope Gabe makes this yearly. Absolutely phenomenal. What's King Henry? (Seriously that good).

    I am still wondering when this gets released at the brewery, really wanting to grab a few bottles. Will there be a bottle limit at the brewery?

    It was the winner of Brouwer's Hard Liver in Seattle last year. So it's better than at least 60 other Barleywines

    Apparently at this years Great Alaskan Barleywine Festival it came in third behind a Firestone Walker and other breweries Barleywine. So the argument of winning best of is somewhat irrelevant. Was looking for people who actually had the beer and what characteristics it has that make it "stand apart" if you will.

    Brewery isn't open to the public. Sorry, man. I have my brother in law up there on high alert for when it's released, too. Keep an eye on Facebook/Twitter and you might have some luck.

    It's been released in a few places in Anchorage (La Bodega, Goldrush, BJWH) already - very small quantities and it has sold out very quickly. I've had to work this week and by lunch I have missed out.

    I hoping there will be some more deliveries and be at the right place at the right time later this week.

    Its a great beer but like someone mentioned it came in 3rd at the GABBF: Alameda (Portland, OR) was 1st and Sucaba was 2nd. I didn't try the Alameda and the Sucaba was served ice cold :confused:.

    I don't think it won at Hard Liver either, but it should have.

    It did not win though it did get second or third I believe. The cognac barrels are just so fantastic. Hope this is a yearly thing.
