I heard this was going to retail around $30 a bottle
For once, I'm ok with that.
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 I would still by this if it was distributed in my area, which it won't be
i can taste the rare!
Crooked stave rep said if this sees wide distro that they will bring it to CO!!!
Bottled on Monday. On draft right now at Humpy's in Anchorage.
Thanks for the Humpy's heads up...went down and got a 13 oz. pour for the price of an 8!
How would you guys compare to some other world class barleywines? Non-bias
I'm super pumped for this beer. I'm hoping it makes it down here, would love to grab a couple.
Im hoping we see it the way we saw darkest hour
I hope so too, but I doubt it. I hope I'm wrong.
I'll have to have a little chat with our bartenders... lol
What's on draft at Humpy's is actually last year's batch. I think everything that was brewed this time went into bottles.
You will do nothing of the sort! Lol
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
So....any word on if we 're gonna see this in WA?
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).
Stop it... I don't need any more of a boner for this beer.
bad want, trade i will do for you real 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?
If anyone gets ahold of some I'm ISO!! please BM me! FT: Almanac Sours/Russian River Sours!
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.
I'd check out the reviews on it then
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 .
Another ISO here. Lots of HF kicking around in my cellar...
I don't think it won at Hard Liver either, but it should have.
chances of this not being amazing are rough 0%.
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.
ISO for real.
I don't know if we'll get this in the St. Louis area but I work at a Friar Tucks where we get lots of good stuff that other locations do not; if someone can get this and is interested in trading contact me!!
Does anyone know if / when this will hit Fairbanks at all?
Dang you are right, for some reason I was thinking midnight sun brew pub bla. Hmmm bad news it is already being released and bought up so quick. Will need to get checking around I guess.
Sorry for the double post but forgot to ask, can you confirm the $30 bottle cost? thanks
Add another ISO to the list. Seems like too many already, but hopeful.
Yep, $30 per 750 ml bottle in Anchorage.
Is this already sold out in Anc? other than the Lotto ones at LaBodega?
Looking to trade some BAB9k for this. Hit me up if you're interested.
