    New thread to discuss anticipated releases local or international as its been awhile since weve had something like this.

    I for one was rather excited to hear this week that Feral will finally start releasing more beers in bottles. Whilst these will be limited 'brewpub series' releases only released every 3 - 4 months I cant wait to get the chance to drink some Feral beers at home. First release scheduled for the end of the month is Raging Flem. Hoepfully Boris gets a release sometime soon....

    Boris is a definite for winter :)

    Only 5 pallets will be done for the whole country, so it is very limited.

    Your insider knowledge never ceases to astound Lukie!

    Can you confirm or deny rumours of WW getting bottled?

    Keen to try the Riverside Breakfast Porter. Maple Syrup, Coffee, Bacon.

    Don't think it will end up like Rogue Voodoo.

    Are you kidding? Dave needs at least 20 more years in the industry before he could hope to replicate such a masterpiece.

    is this Riverside Breakfast Porter a real thing?

    I don't know how much I am supposed to talk about, but they are looking at putting in a small sour-dedicated bottling line.

    Take that as you will.

    No worries. Understood.

    Yep, in the tank at the moment.

    Not sure if he is growing a beard. Didn't see Moby Dick lying around out there...

    Sweet.

    I was under the impression that bottled WW had already been confirmed.

    WW confirmed. It's being released after RF. Boris and/or Razorback will be after that.

    danieelol Jun 15, 2010 Australia

    What's RF?

    So is WW a special release or regular?

    RF = Raging Flem

    Watermelon Warhead will be another of the special releases. As I understand it, the core range will remain at 4 with White, Hop Hog, Golden Ace and Smoked Porter.
     
  14. MordeciaFunk

    That's right Mr K. If we do add to the core range, the next one will be WW. That's a little further down the line though.

    interesting - with White a somewhat poorly received offering (at least in geek land here) a question I am interested in - is it a good seller?

    Given the strength of the rest of the portfolio, killings to be made methinks if they were offered.....
     
  16. Lukie

    Lukie Jun 16, 2007 Australia

    I think white is the biggest seller around the place. The new batch is really good.
     
  17. MordeciaFunk

    MordeciaFunk Feb 14, 2012 Australia

    We sell twice as much White as HH.
     
  18. danieelol

    danieelol Jun 15, 2010 Australia

    Can now buy all 3 of Feral's beers (White doesn't count) 1 minute's walk down the road. I'm hoping we get your bottled Blueberry Lambic ;)

    Lukie Jun 16, 2007 Australia

    Have you had new white? It's really good for what it is.

    Old white... not so much.

    Aussie Witbier is 98th on my list of to-tick styles behind Australian Light Lager

    Well yes, if it isn't a style you want to drink.

    I don't really ever want to drink Wits, so I never drink it. I did try the new batch and thought for what it was, it was one of the best for the style on the market.

    another single release that im looking forward to is the next LC Single Batch, a Red IPA - yes please!!!

    i also saw today that Gage Roads have released a new single batch, hopefully as good as the last one

    If the Red IPA is like the previous they have done keg only at the brewery it is going to be amazing. I haven't seen Russell in AGGEGEGESSSSSSS hence I didn't know what it would be. It now makes sense as he said it would be something I loved and he knows I love that beer!

    looking eagerly forward to something - anything!!!! - new in a bottle from Murrays.

    Note!! - that does not mean a re-release.......:mad:

    I am genuinely amazed. Good info, shows that Beer Geek faves are not crossing over big-time into mainstream even if it 2013....

    thanks!

    Lukie Jun 16, 2007 Australia

    We sell 10 x more Hop Hog in store then any other Feral beer, but we are a beer geek shop. Hop Hog sales are still growing considerably and it is the beer usually talked about, so it has certainly hit some part of the mainstream.

    hardly an anticipation but today i see tha IBS listed a new Stillwater / Mikkeller collab that they called an imperial smoked saison - three of my favourite words together. Cant wait to try this..........

    I may or may not have been wrong on that description......................................................

    from Stillwater.....

    A Scandinavian smoked ale brewed with applewood smoked malt and loads of resinous hops.. like a heavy metal BBQ in a pine forest.

    sounds good to me

    Lukie Jun 16, 2007 Australia

    They usually use only a Saison yeast, so maybe I was right. I do remember reading it was a smoked saison.

    Hey Luke

    Any hope of getting the JME re released. That was a fantasic beer and I'm always hoping for another batch to be released ?
     
  32. Lukie

    Lukie Jun 16, 2007 Australia

    The Shiraz Barrel Aged Belgian Ale?

    No idea. I expect with the extensive barrel ageing going on at Feral things akin to this will be popping up more regularly over the coming year or so.
     
  33. eric5bellies

    eric5bellies Jun 9, 2006 Australia

    yeah thats the one. last time they had it was around 3 years ago

    picked up some Bridge Rd Black Harvest and std Harvest at lunchtime, they seem to have just appeared - no hype, thus no anticipation but worth a highlight here

    can't believe it's been a year.....
