    That's amazing. That really sounds like a beer judging scorecard if you were to create it based on the conversations at my homebrew shop these days. :grinning:

    Toppling Goliath posted on FB that they aren't brewing pseudoSue. Instead they will start making pseudoPenguin. They had pretty cool mock label art too.

    I've got a decent sense of humor but most of these are terrible sans the JK one which I laughed hard at.

    I'm surprised no one thought to announce their release of this year's pumpkin beers in the upcoming weeks.

    Other Half did a pretty funny one, though I think only about 10% of their customers realized it was a joke. the other 90% will be lining up for a limit of 1 $75 4-pack at 5pm tonight LMAO!!

    This one was pretty funny from CCB that showed up in my facebook news feed today!


    Cigar City Brewing



    Thank you to everyone who showed up yesterday for the release of Octodecuple Barrel-aged Hunahpu's Imperial Stout! We sold out quickly after everyone who showed up purchased the max allotment of 2 pallets per person.

    This beer was aged in 18 different barrels before being masterfully blended together by our brewmaster Wayne. The percentage breakdown for the blend is as follows:

    - 4.3% aged in bourbon barrels
    - 8.3% aged in apple brandy barrels
    - 2.5% aged in tequila barrels
    - 9.3% aged in vodka barrels
    - 4.4% aged in kaoliang barrels
    - 7.9% aged in sambuca barrels
    - 4.8% aged in drambuie barrels
    - 5.2% aged in whiskey barrels
    - 4.3% aged in Tabasco barrels
    - 7.2% aged in mezcal barrels
    - 5.9% aged in sloe gin barrels
    - 6.2% aged in țuică barrels
    - 2.2% aged in whisky barrels
    - 4.3% aged in California brandy barrels
    - 8.6% aged in eau de vie barrels
    - 7.5% aged in bourbon barrels
    - 4.0% aged in amaro barrels
    - 3.1% aged in pickle barrels

    We expected a bigger turnout to be honest, but maybe we should have been more vocal about it on social media. Those who did get the beer seem happy with their haul. And we imagine it'll be super easy to get bottles from these guys in a trade!

    Mmmmm pickle barrel!!

    Pickles and tabasco sounds interging, along with eau de vie

    From Alesmith's IG-

    In our efforts to constantly innovate and evolve our brews, we bring you the newest addition to our line-up—Crystal Speedway Stout. Made using a new proprietary technique we’ve engineered that removes Speedway’s dark color while leaving behind all of the malty goodness we all love, it provides a next-level #beer experience. Crystal Speedway Stout will be hitting shelves in April. You have to see it to believe it!

    A local bottle store posted a picture of a fresh stack of Heady and Sunshine, limited amount. They still haven't confirmed it is fake but there was an April Fools hashtag.
