    Similar to the Pipeworks thread, and with the hope that we can get past the common complaints centered around FFF BA releases, I have compiled a list of what I hope to be every non-BA DL release by FFF beginning with the Baller Stout release at the Anniversary Party on November 12, 2011. With an apology to Dontcounttoday, let's see if we can consolidate the upcoming BA releases (at the brewpub or at events) into one thread from now on. Hopefully this will help with many of the common questions that arise (i.e., what was the price last time? When was it last released? Why is it so expensive? Etc.) Clarifications/adds/modifications are welcome.

    11/12/11 - Baller Stout (Release 1) ($30)
    11/12/11 - Cuvee De Viking ($25)
    11/12/11 - SoBro ($25)
    11/12/11 - Biggs' Stache ($25)
    11/12/11 - Conquistador de Muerte Porto ($25)
    11/12/11 - Owde Engwish Bahwey Whine ($25)
    3/18/12 - BA Behemoth (2012) (Release 1) ($30)
    3/18/12 - BA Alpha Klaus with Cherries (Release 1) ($25)
    3/18/12 - BA Alpha Klaus with Plums (Release 1) ($25)
    4/28/12 - BA Behemoth (2012) (Release 2) ($30)*
    4/28/12 - BA Alpha Klaus with Cherries (Release 2) ($25)*
    4/28/12 - BA Alpha Klaus with Plums (Release 2) ($25)*
    4/28/12 - Baller Stout (Release 2) ($30)
    7/17/12 - Battle Priest ($35)
    8/14/12 - Cabra (Release 1) ($35)
    8/21/12 - Cabra (Release 2) ($35)
    9/4/12 - Cognac Moloko ($35)
    9/11/12 - Conquistador de Muerte ($35)
    9/25/12 - Bully Guppy ($20)
    10/24/12 - Baller Stout (Release 3) ($30)
    11/6/12 - BA Alpha Klaus with Raspberries ($35)
    11/13/12 - Baller Stout (Release 4) ($30)
    12/11/12 - Murda'd Out Stout (Release 1) ($50)
    12/19/12 - Murda'd Out Stout (Release 2) ($50)
    1/15/13 - BA Black Sun with Cherries ($35)
    1/21/13 - BA Topless Wytch ($35)
    1/29/13 - BA Behemoth (2013) ($40)
    2/5/13 - BA Behemoth with Cherries ($40)

    *NOTE: On DLD 2012, there was a limited release as the day began of the leftover sales of bottles that were not sold at the 3/18/12 ticket on-sale. There were very few bottles released to the general public. I have marked this release as 'Release 2' in a similar style to the other multi-release bottles, as I do not have definitive information pertaining to whether these releases were a separate 'batch' from the original release.

    You forgot Conquistador de Muerte. Think that was a week after Cognac Moloko.

    Excellent. Thanks. Exactly the feedback I'm looking for. I have updated the list to include CdM and the additional releases at the 2011 Anniversary Party.

    Why not maintain a google doc? Easier to maintain and dontcounttoday still gets to ruin releases for the regulars. Win/win.

    Some companies block Google Docs at work. If someone would like to expand on the forum and create the Google Doc, I am all for it. In the meantime, the main point was to consolidate upcoming releases into this thread.

    And most companies block BeerAdvocate. What's your point?

    If someone would like to create a Google Doc, that is just fine with me! Cheers!

    Cant always make everyone happy. I like the idea of how this is set up like the pipeworks releases. Nice job OP

    other upside of making a google doc would be if this thread inevitably spirals out of control like so many other threads, the information won't get lost if it gets deleted.

    also, it would be really nice if (at a later point) the new releases could be edited into the OP but the forum edit timers unfortunately prevent that.

    Agree all around. If this is not completed by another BA before the end of the day, I will create the document later this evening. I also have a backup copy of the information saved locally so that if the thread is deleted for any reason, I can re-post the information and start again, with or without the Google Doc.

    Why can't the BA(Beer Advocate) Gods or brothers allow people to edit their original posts after 15 minutes? just include the 'edit insert' brackets with a time stamp or something. I don't frequent really any other message boards, is it common that you can't edit after 15 minutes?

    Any insight if FFF is releasing any goodies on this Fat Tuesday?

    After seeing that list in full, I couldn't be more happy that I haven't gone down for a single Tuesday release.

    Nope, no release today.

    This thread is a great idea, though Nate I'm afraid it will still "ruin the release for the locals." Hate that attitude.

    You'll have to settle for BA Bear Claw down the road at Flossmoor.

    Only took a few minutes. I did change the 11/6 Alpha Klaus to just BA. I got that one and it did not have raspberries, or if it did, there was another date where they just released BA Alpha Klaus.

    I recall SoBro costing less at the anniversary party than the others. $15? Maybe someone can confirm.

    BA thread, Google doc, hard copy - I really don't give a sh*t. All I need is for someone to confirm that what I'm looking at is the definitive source of information.

    Should be them paying us $15 to take it off their hands.

    The accuracy of information is quickly confirmed by our great BA Community making edits where they see fit. Some changes have been made thus far but for the most part I believe the list given above is fairly comprehensive and accurate. There may be a few more tweaks necessary based on the feedback thus far.

    Maybe I didn't emphasize enough that I need it to be DEFINITIVE. Don't want to have to use italics as well.

    Confirmed at Brewpub. No releases today, though Zombie Dust was bottled this morning and is available for sale. Carry on.

    he just meant he added to the spreadsheet above.

    a half page in and people are already avoiding reading the thread.

    Not sure if this is list-worthy but FFF did release a small batch of Behemoth the last week in October. Red Wax. Non-BA but it definitely wasn't left over from their Jan 2012 release.

    The past few years they have released a 2nd batch during said year (ie, 2011.5, 2012.5). Its annual, so doesn't fit into the special release list.
