I think you can tag a mod to edit it?
As a co-HS member from 2015, I got the email about SHIT and the '15 hold-overs.
I see that it's on the site now for HS members...is that hold-over from 2015 HS members or is this 2016 HS allocation and as of 1/11 SHIT is open to the public?
@mattolesh can you please help clarify?
Poterie might be too hot for me:
"Best-stored and served around 55o F (13o C) in a tulip, wine or hand-sculpted pottery glass."
If the beer is hitting distribution, then it will likely go back up in the online store after the allocation period. They give us allocations on beers that will be publicly released just to ensure we get bottles. Hopefully they made enough so we can order additional.
Is batch 1731 worth getting?
Sure thing. Here's the timeline:
Today, 1/4 - 2016 members can purchase
Next Monday, 1/11 - 2015 members can purchase their allocation (with the 15% or 20% discount)
Next Tuesday, 1/12 - Public release
Yeah, but that guy is crazy!
Hopefully I can convince her to let me live until I drink all the beer I bought. That may be the only thing that saves my life! I must have more of this clearly life-giving elixir!
But most importantly here! How are these new allocations tasting?
I have no complaint with public release if they've made enough but I would have preferred a 4-6 bottle allocation rather than a 3-bottle one. If they made enough for public distro they should have made enough to do an initial 4-6 bottle allocation first.
Any idea what kind of distribution SHIT will receive?
I see that The Bruery has it listed as a national offering. I'm guessing that distro will be similar to the anniversary beers, then.
If its going into distribution, I would expect to see it offered for sale to the public in the online store at some point. You will be able to buy more than. Your RS discount will still apply.
Seeing as how this year's anniversary is pottery themed, I can only imagine the possibilities for the special anniversary glassware (ceramicware?). Never to early to discuss the Anniversary party. Per the email it looks to be May 14th.
Its going full distro. You'll even be able to buy them at your local Flea Market.
A little bit too early, but if you wanted to complain about the date.... then its never too early!
I'm just glad their anniversary is in May, the party falls close to my birthday and the wife can't say shit about me going!
Have had to miss it the past two years. Don't plan on missing it this year!
Take that glassware talk to Glassadvocate, brah.
What are the out-of-staters who get regular Bruery offerings thinking about SHiT? Since it's seeing distro, I'm debating passing if only to avoid shipping across the country for no reason.
I think if it is a beer you really want, I would grab the 3 bottles and possibly more if it hits locally. If it isn't, maybe get 1 or 2 and then you try it before you buy more if it hits the shelf?
Seeing distribution and actually finding bottles in stores is not the same thing.
I thought I answered this already... #friendshipover
Bout time you plan on showing up!
Posting here since the 2015 thread is closed. @mattolesh Will the 2015 "carryover" beers being released this month and next need to be picked up by March 31st?
I'll do whatever you do since I'm wondering the same thing.
Maybe I'll buy one online now just to avoid the hassle of having to leave the house and look for it.
Since moving to IN, I have noticed that the tougher to find Bruery beers that hit distro (i.e., Mash) never see the light of day here. That said, whenever I go to Chicago, they are relatively easy to find. Just depends on what market you're in...
I used to live in Orange County, and now I live in BFE Oregon... I feel your pain. It's a good hour drive to find any beer that isn't super basic beer.
I need to buy my flight down for the anniversary party... it's about 3 weeks before finals so it works out great.
That's my thought. Mash is currently sitting on shelves, as are the last anniversary(ies), so I don't think I'd have a problem getting a bottle or two.
If I lived anywhere near De Garde I would have a real control problem.
That's a good question. We're still working out the details. But, I can say that we will do our best to make sure it's as fair of a timeline as possible. I'd speculate to say it'll be something like an slightly extended pickup window for these purchases with added flexibility after the pickup window closes for 2015 members. We'll likely end up holding orders until next year for 2016 members.
@mattolesh Are you guys still experiencing the big delays in shipping? I just put an order through for a 12 bottle shipper, with instructions to include my Welcome pack and another 3-bottle order.
I understand that it might not get packed until after this week has passed, given the focus on the welcome packs. But, do you expect that it will take a long time after that before it gets sent out?
Thanks for the help
I think so, I made my last '15 order in middle of December and it still hasn't shipped.
Sure, we can edit as, it's been done before by @F2brewers in last years thread.
Indeed. Best for all who are paying attention to tag us since we usually have more pressing matters at hand.
allocations i tried at SMM yesterday and my thoughts --
SHIT 2016 - Def higher in ABV but you cant really taste it. Very rich and decadent with a nice chocolatey undertone. Almost reminded me of chocolate cake. draft pour.
Batch 1731 - Hoppy, Bretty, Grassy. Not overly funky and very very refreshing. it seems they did exactly what they set out to on this beer. Solid offering and I always tell myself I wont be a fan of the hoppy bretted ones but end up enjoying them a lot. bottle pour.
Les Ronces - My fav from the bunch. in true bruery fashion when it comes to their sour blonde, very very acidic. Nice tartness, very juicy, and a nice balanced funk. As it warmed up i got some red kool aid flavors/fruit punch. nice effervescence. Really enjoyed this beer but was hurting me later when the acid reflux kicked in. draft pour.
Chupacabara - VERY CLEAN. this beer is super good. The belgian blonde yest shines really well and the brett finishes really nicely. not my fav style of beer but it is really tasty. bottle pour.
Scotch anniversary - kicked on sunday, really bummed i wasnt able to try this one (or was it the chron 6 scotch that was on? people werent very clear in this thread and I think may be mixing those two up)
Mocha Wednesday 2016- tasting better than ever. Coffee Chocolate bomb. Booziness is there but doesnt make it imbalanced. draft pour.
Hope that helps for out of towners looking to buy allocations.
Yeah I was there at 2pm and it had already kicked. It was poterie, I remember seeing it on the flight list before they changed them out
@F2brewers I believe the first post needs to be updated with Poterie as an allocation for Hoarders but please someone correct me if I am wrong.
