    You probably know this already, but the Dark Horse party is 4 Elf. They or may not have Monster.

    Winter Solstice is the party at Kuhnhenn. They will likely have BBBW.

    Yeah, my buddy is a brewer at DH, he said they will have Monster 29 at 4 elf party in december (didn't mean to say solstice). Although, I will probably go to the winter solstice party at Kuhnenn for BBBW

    Had the BA Imperial the other day. $7.99 a bottle in OH. Very good, but I thought the barrel taste was overpowering. Not among the elites in the BA IS/RIS category, but a very solid offering. I would buy another one.

    Really want to try the barleywine!

    I didn't like the BBA Imp Stout, but the BBA Cereal Killer (barleywine) was awesome. Still waiting to try the BBA Porter (aka Ship Wreck) cause only have one bottle.

    This information is wrong as per their Facebook event info...

    "This Baltic-style porter has a robust malt character and a slight herbal hop bitterness. Aged for 12 months in 10-year-old Kentucky bourbon oak barrels, this alluring dark liquid features appealing undertones of vanilla, oak, cocoa and coffee. The aging occurs in abandoned mines in Michigan, at a constant temperature of 45F.

    12% ABV, 50 IBUs"

    This is simply the stock description of the beer. If you look further down on Facebook page you will notice a picture of the packaging, the case clearly states "Aged over a year in 22-year old oak bourbon barrels". There are obvious discrepancies from two Arcadia sources. The stock description has been proven time and time again to be inaccurate as of late, Arcadia is really muddying the waters by continuing to use it.

    Why they gotta be like that? Toying with my emotions.

    Now this is something we can agree on. The information they have communicated to distributors conflicts with what they said in the articles you posted previously. Maybe they're doing it on purpose to create some weird mysteriousness. Either way, I'm looking forward to Shipwreck. Personally, I like it the best of the three.

    If only their beers were good enough to argue over, this thread would really deliver. Right now they're too pricey for what they actually are.

    Arcadia in Ohio? I'm guessing they don't make it much past the Toledo-ish area, then?

    Good to know - the only time I've picked up their brews is at Party Source in KY!

    I'm pretty sure that I've seen Arcadia stuff in Columbus.

    I imagine it's old stock - they have no presence at any of the larger stores in Columbus (Anderson's, Weiland's, Whole Foods, etc.), at least.

    From what I understand they used to make it down here but they weren't happy with their distributor.
