    I'm heading into the release all the way from Wisconsin with a very low riding car, and am scheduled to arrive about 1:15. Not sure I want to chance it based on the comments in this thread. Is there anyone else coming in from the north side around that time would be willing to pick me and my girlfriend up just outside mount pleasant in your high riding SUV? I'd be happy to share a bottle of Jackie O's BBBM for your troubles! We're fine with quick in/quick out of sticking around for several hours to try everything.... BM me if you're able to help another BAer out - we would really appreciate it!!

    Second the house of brews suggestion. Fantastic place, although some of the bar tenders are a little shady:wink:

    Not that bad at all. Wasn't sure what to expect. Coming in from the north was fine. Thanks!

    Any surprises with the actual beers released?

    Are all 4 the same type of bourbon barrel aged?
    Anybody have any idea what type of bourbon barrels were used for the aging?

    Props to Westbrook for putting the safety of their customers first. Theres a lot of water on the roads, trees down, some power outages, just not a great day to drive 5-6 hours or more with so many roads closed and or dangerous.

    I believe they had a 1/6 barrel of it outside in the early afternoon but that was the only time they tapped it. I checked outside periodically to see what they had on tap out there but unfortunately missed it.

    I got there right around 1210, they had Coconut, Raspberry Chocolate, '12 regular and Coffee cake on outside. Inside had Bourbon and Churro. Best surprise was when they popped '14 Tequilla. Biggest disappointment was when the rumors of them tapping/opening Apple Brady turned out to not be true

    I went outside at around 2:00-2:30 (when Cognac was still on tap outside) and was told by the Westbrook person pouring beers that BA Coconut had in fact been on tap outside and had kicked

    Apple Brandy, Tequila and at least a couple of other variants were opened and poured for random (friends of the brewery??) patrons at the bar throughout the afternoon.

    You the bourbon in the coconut and drink them both up!

    Actually, I have an idea (no beer involved) I need to try.

    Or were people buying those off the bottle list?

    Either way, sounds like an amazing release. I hate to say it but seems like the tsunami-type rains actually probably made things LESS chaotic. I was out of town, but was able to get my bottle allotment. Glad (hope) a good time was had by all!

    I saw one of the employees bust out an Apple Brandy and pour to several people at the bar who were very surprised and excited, thanking her many times. I do not think it was one of the purchased bottles.

    Thanks to everyone that made it out. This was by far the most relaxed release, despite the shat weather. I think everyone was happy, especially those of us working. Most of the people picked up their beer, and there was only a pallet worth left for people that couldn't make it. I think this will be the way we do it from here on out. BTW, the 50/50 mix of bourbon and churro cake way simply amazing. I want that in bottles!

    Amazing event. Drove home to Raleigh. What normally takes 4 hours took 8. I95 shut down, had to backtrack to 26 and drove through Coumbia. Columbia was in bad shape. I hope y'all made it home OK, and I hope our SC BAs are ok. Stay safe.

    After seeing the news it looks like the storm management engineer may have known what he was talking about..

    Me and two friends purchased the bottle of Apple Brandy Cake at the bar...still amazing! And agree with above, the mix of Bourbon and Churro cake was fantastic!

    Yikes. Glad we made it through before that happened. Had a little hydroplane scare on the way back on 95 but made it from Westbrook to Raleigh in just over 4 hours.

    Be aware, it's still a few days out from the second pickup window but there are A LOT of bridges and roads that are out in both the Charleston and Columbia areas. I-95 is closed for 75 miles north of I-26 and there were a few bad spots on the way to and from columbia on all sides. Plan accordingly.

    I can't believe the damage done to South Carolina. Sorry to hear what happened, hope all the Carolina BA's are OK. We were only in MtP for an hour and we drove back, it sounds like that was long enough. Thanks to Westbrook again for hooking it up!!!

    Weird, and slightly comical, that most/all references to ST are getting removed completely.

    It is pretty funny that "it" can't even be discussed without being deleted. Anyway yeah even though the storm is over and the sun is out it's still crazy out there, especially coming through Columbia. It's wild seeing chunks of street washed away about a mile from where I used to live.
