    Old thread locked, time for a new one.

    Another Stasis release going on sale this weekend. There's been a bottle sale every other week since Staff of Asir, they're really ramping up those releases! Summer is looking jam packed for BL.

    Looks like I'm going to start passing on future strong ale releases. Majority of these recent releases have been disappointing.

    This feels like a bonus release before they announce FO, and any "extra" releases are much appreciated.

    I really enjoy the strong ales I've tried from BL - would be really interesting to see how the same ingredients from these strong ale releases would do in a their stout...a side-by-side of strong ale and stout with exactly the same ingredients. Or a dual release with complementary pours (cookies & milk, cake & ice cream, black & tan, pb & jelly) would be fun.

    22 minutes?! So is this a case of large supply, low demand, or other? Fascinating. I figured just the word vanilla would incite a mob-like frenzy of beer nerds to swipe up every bottle in miliseconds.

    Can't imagine it will last too much longer, it was a realllly well balanced rum BA'er when I had it last week. Maybe people are sleeping on it because of the impending FO release?

    Maybe an eventbrite issue?

    How in the world could those strong ales sell so quickly 2 weeks ago and we're 40 minutes in now with bottles still available? Really strange.

    Twenty seven minutes, but who's counting? :wink:

    The Ice Cream Strong Ales were much smaller releases -- the smallest we've done in quite a while.

    It doesn't sell out in 30 seconds, it goes unavailable until they fall out of carts, it sells out usually in 15-20 mins. This one was 28 minutes.

    The time it takes to go unavailable is more meaningful than the time it takes to sell out.

    Not sure if it was brought up in the previous thread, but Draw Me Like One... is definitely one of the better new big beers in a while. I hope they bottle it

    Yeah, I realized after I posted that when you clicked on "Tickets" it still showed available and still let you drop down and select 3 tickets but would toggle to unavailable once you tried to check out. In previous sales when you clicked on "Tickets" the drop down would say unavailable as soon as the dialogue box came up. The way I was checking it could have been sold out in 10 seconds and i wouldn't have known the difference.

    I'm rather sad I missed this (had an 18 hour sleep day that was much needed) since I rated it pretty highly at WoL. Oh well, them's the shakes.

    "a sale site to build" - hopefully that means no more bottle fees!

    I doubt it. They have used that phrase a few times in the past and it really means just building out the EventBrite page(s)

    God I hope they release FOMO. Also hope Brewer's Reserve cooled off. Would be awesome to see that one bottled.

    I would LOVE FOMO to be bottled as well <fingers crossed>.

    IIRC Brewer's Reserve was a one off for Week of Logic, so that's unlikely to be bottled this time around.

    I did however see the next batch of FF was in the tanks a little while back, so looks like we'll likely have that to look forward to in 2019. That's not too helpful this sale, but something well aged and tasty to look forward to in the future.

    Speaking of FF, I saw someone ask about it on IG. BL said it doesn't exist. Then someone chimed in there was an instagram story about it. So then it was a "whoops, we forgot about that. Yes it's coming but not for a long time"

    I was hoping, but it was the combo that I couldn't read it and @Heisenbrew 's post.

    Saw something similiar where someone asked about FF and BL said, "FF was a one time brew. This could change".

    Yeah, I would guess probably a very late 2019 release considering b2 was in tanks only like 2 months ago, and b1 was aged for 16 months.
    FOMO bottled is probably unlikely since they already a coffee variant for sure hitting bottles, the Mikkeller collab Fundamental Beer Geek (which as I remember from tasting at WoL was basically FO with coffee). Wouldn't be surprised actually to see them announce that soon as a level 2 release happening alongside FOb4. But who knows, they could have 2 coffee variants down the pipeline. And as far as Reserve goes, they've said before that it was an extremely small batch and will not be hitting bottles, unfortunately.
