    I was aware of the release, just not the price. I hope this is for 750s, not 375s...

    I think this was actually batch 2 on draft. XII.1, as in first revision. I asked the guy serving draft and he said it was the one from last July. Regardless, damn good.

    Sorry for the snark. I think I owed you one :slight_smile:
    Yup. 750's. Seems like a bargain to me.

    Ran in super fast for a bottle and a little taste around 4:15. Really small crowd. Good stuff.

    Tons of bottles too, it will be around a few days I bet.

    But you know BW is storing many of those cases away to see if they can sell them for $100 a bottle in 2020, right?

    There was enough beer on the floor at 4pm when I left to seemingly last weeks. I thought it was just pretty good - tequila barrel aged beers are not a trend that needs to go much further beyond this. Without being super savvy as to the difference in ingredients, barrel cost and length in the barrel, I am a bit curious why the price-point is so low compared to other high-end barrel beers from Lost Abbey.

    Place was absolutely dead from 3-4. Fine by me, but a far contrast from last year.

    I'm just glad that's what passes for snark in the PNW. And yes, quite a few people owe me one.
    I stopped in around 5:30, grabbed two bottles. It was actually pretty crowded, relatively speaking. This was a Seattle beer event, after all.

    Has anyone opened one of their bottles yet?

    Good question. Can't wait to find out if the bottles are as well carbonated as draft. Don't look to me to find out though. Popping one of mine isn't in the cards anytime soon.

    I might have to make a trip up. From what I've heard this beer sounds good. Though I am wondering how the bottle does vs the tap version.

    Hey, beer is more than bubbles.

    According to Matt V, this was the re-release, not batch 1.

    I don't know how you guys can call yourselves beer nerds after messing up this one.

    I'm turning in my nerd license tomorrow. I was told at the event that it was batch 1...also it was WAY different from a b2 bottle I opened about a week before...so weird. Draft was really funky with a good amount of fruit while my bottle was quite a bit less funky with even more fruit...almost juicy.

    A former coworker flaked on me .... He was going to drive in from Renton yesterday but was bitching so much, I told him to forget it.

    Any chance somebody would like to work something that would be mutually beneficial?

    Ideally, I would like to score 1-3 bottles.

    There are TONS left as of this afternoon. Evidently it's a blend of several LA beers, aged in tequila barrels. Sweet, heavy and boozy.
