    I want to follow up and say that I am a hoarder and have had all the bruery sours and many with some age on them. I guess I personally enjoy more balanced / less aggressive sours.

    With age bruery sours become lacto sour bombs. To each their own though.

    Anyone care to speculate (maybe even confirm…) what the 2 beers that make up Juggling Walruses are? BT or Anniversary and….sour blonde?

    As far as aging Bruery beers goes - I'm curious to hear how other people do it too. Personally I only (intentionally) age Rueuze and BT and it's variants. Beyond those, the only reason I hold onto a Bruery beer is because it was so damn good I'm afraid to drink my last one and not have any more (I'm looking at you Melange 9 and Blue BBLs).

    Beauregard has developed a nice touch of funk imo. Wish they would bring that bad boy back.

    Drank a Beauregard two days ago, super funky and sour, subtle blueberry taste, very good stuff still.

    I'm guessing Sour in the Rye or Oude Tart blended with Anniversary. The ABV math roughly works out with the ratios they stated (ABV would be 10 - 10.5% depending on the strength of the Anniversary barrels they pulled) and the flavor combination seems like it would work better with black currants than a blend involving Black Tuesday. Also, an OT/BT blend would basically be fruited Melange #1.

    Not super excited about it considering how underwhelming Flanders Giant was, but maybe going heavier on the sour component will yield better results.

    For anyone that's interested, the Black Tuesday hoodie is back up. Now lemme get one of those glasses!

    I had my last Batch 300 about six months ago, if it's held up anything like mine I wouldn't be too bummed you missed it. I figured a big tripel would hold up well but mine was pretty dead. Flat, chalky, not much barrel character anymore. I enjoyed it, but it was nothing like it was a few years ago.

    Emails for next year just went out. You have to choose if you want the howler or bag. Luckily we can buy the other one in early 2016. The bag actually looks pretty cool. I especially like the inside of it!

    i have a feeling the other item will be somewhere around 30 if i had to guess and when they originally announced it i thought for sure id get the growler but i agree the bag is nice and i really like the inside

    I really want them both, the howler seems like a better design for beer than the hydroflask ( which I use a lot for non carbed beverages, but not so much for beer ) and the bag will get lots of use . I originally thought I wouldn't want a bag at all, but now I'm pretty stoked on it.

    I was thinking the same thing. I thought, no chance on a bag, buts it's pretty sweet.

    Very torn here!

    Bag. Hands down. If I lived in CA or ever filled growlers it'd be different, but even having 18 taps at work I never buy growlers of anything.

    The howler looks like a winner for carbonated drinks for 2016 (hydro flask was a fail IMO)and, I really didn't get too many fills in 2015. I'm going for the bag. Always need a travel bag.

    JohnCassillo Initiate (0) Mar 29, 2013 California

    Went with the bag. Not close enough to the Bruery to get down there more than once or twice per quarter, and if I want a fill, already have a blank 2L growler. If CA's growler fill laws were different, I'd probably have considered the howler more.

    Still choosing the bag and am not trying to gripe about my membership, but when they said it would be "big enough for an overnight excursion or a weekend adventure in beer," I was hoping it would have some design feature that took into account transporting bottles. That would really be awesome.

    Shit, I seldom ever get a growler fill at Bruery and it seems like they've knocked us over the head with vessels to do that in the years past already that I don't need another one that I can only use at Bruery.

    Any feedback on fourthmeal yet? I dug through the last couple of pages and couldn't find any tasting notes.

    That bag looks awesome! I will get the bag and debate the howler awhile.

    What the fuck ever happened with the Bruery's sell of Oh Fudge, It's Tuesday? Stuff got pushed back from sales at the Black Tuesday party and here we are a month later and a few weeks since Monstra sold some at their anniversary.

    Given that it was one of the bigger motivating forces behind going to the black tuesday party, not hearing anything more about it is a little odd.

    Any news on White Chocolate? Will this be a public release? I'd love to get my hands on a bottle. The only one I've ever purchased was a 2013 and it was infected.

    It was on the initial list of possibilities for the Hoarders Blending on 11/21 but was deemed "not ready" when the day rolled around. All the pours that day were from bottles so I don't know if it was a bottling issue or something else. Will let you know if it pops up at the blending on 12/5.

    Its absolutely amazing. For sure the best hop forward beer they have ever done.

    It's also on the list for beers for this weekends hoarders blending tourney...but Elise already confirmed they won't really know if its ready until Friday-ish. That being said, I think its a safe bet will be seeing SHIT soon.

    Ah, yes, the Bruery's vaunted history of hop forward beers. Humulus Lager and...well, a bunch of slightly above mediocre not-IPAs.

    @Earlycsquid was asking about Mostra's Oh Fudge It's Tuesday, not SHIT. It is interesting news that they're doing SHIT again, not surprising, but I'm curious to see if we get it before the end of the year.

    they will both retail for the same price so you don't have to worry about choosing the more expensive one for your free merch

    I can carry all my other growlers/howlers in the bag...i can't carry my bags in a growler.

    makes perfect sense to me

    I went with the bag. That liner is awesome and I can always use a weekend-type bag. Who am I kidding though, I'll probably end up buying the growler at some point as well!

    I'm going to go with the growler... Living in a beer wasteland requires me to drive at least an hour to any good breweries (2 hours if I want Boneyard) and when I use my RS growler I get all kinds of comments and sometimes they fill the growler for free.

    I'm surprised nobody has commented on how much better the RS and HS logos look.

    I went bag, but want the growler too! Might have to bite the bullet and buy it. If anyone doesn't want either, hit me up, maybe we can work something out.

    Went growler hoping we get better fill options next year than almost a year of smoking wood and melange 11...
