    There's always conjecture about a new day of the week beer, always. I believe the HS BT variant was announced with our welcome package, but I am too lazy to check my email.

    HS-only BT variant was announced in the welcome package since we get included bottles :wink:

    Well, too bad I misunderstood, though from a wallet perspective, that leaves me quite relieved...

    I'm pretty sure they were advertising the debut of a new "imperial stout" for weeks before releasing what turned out to be Share This, which is where I got the same impression that a new Weekday was coming. Understandable confusion.

    In theory there could be both a new weekday beer and a Hoarders BT variant

    Did GM and MW start their lives at BT variants and then get "promoted," or did they launch off the bat as their own weekday?

    I heard it's going to be Bloody Sunday. Made with real Hoarder blood, so you know it's good.

    But seriously, I'd love to see them mimic MW GM and CR with SHIT as the base. In theory, that'd bring the price down and make it something that's easier to open with a fewer people [not ~20%abv].

    Just got the email about Blue BBLs release in the Terreux tasting room. I may be jaded, but I'd rather have seen more allotment of the beer than for it to trickle down to everyone for purchase. Kind of irritated about that.

    Rue Sans sounds awesome.

    Plus, I just got a response to my question if we will know what's the Hoarders BT variant, before the renewals this year and the answer is "not likely". Well, that would certainly make my decision about renewing go one way.

    The whole out of state members discussion form a couple pages ago reminded me, I need a new trustee. Anyone interested in Indiana/Midwest beers and/or cut of RS beers for some trustee duties? Message me if interested.

    Frucht: BeRazzled and Gremlin(Hoppy Belgian) got tapped while I was in the tasting room. Shegoat kicked, but I'm glad they are still opening archive kegs.

    Berazzled! I haven't heard that name in a long time. That was the beer that got me into tart beers. That and Bemangoed.

    Its pretty obvious whats happening. Terreux is basically dead all of the time while the OG tasting room is still packed. They've been releasing stuff like this to try and force people to go over there and see it. They did in person bottle releases of TOD w/cherry and vanilla a couple weeks ago.

    I get it would have been nice for more member bottles, but at the end of the day they are trying to make their new tasting room successful so they are doing some new stuff to try and get people to go over there.

    If I lived closer, I would be super happy actually with the fact that new tasting room is not packed. Only managed to go there once so far, but it was an awesome experience and 100 times better than the always crowded OG location. But yeah, I totally get it, that they don't want it this way of course.

    Last Friday the Terreux tasting room had bottles of Ruebarb, Sourrento, TOD w C&V, Frambulous, and I heard they added Blue bbls to that list.

    Mocha Wednesday started out as Hoarders only, and the first release of Grey Monday was one per RS member back before HS existed (so probably would have been HS if it had existed back then), so it is not surprising that a new "day of the week" BT variant would start out as a Hoarders exclusive, then open up to RS next year.

    I had a great time at the Terreux event yesterday - tons of great stuff to try. I especially enjoyed the Frucht variants, which I hadn't tried before yesterday - aside from the normal line-up, the one-offs, cucumber and watermelon, were both great. The Oude Tart w/ Black Currants was the best looking beer of the day (and was incredibly juicy). Plenty of food and mellow crowds. Just wish there were some cold brew coffee options (although, from past experience, I know that the coffee/sour beer combo can be a little rough on the stomach). Well done, Bruery!

    Same price at Eureka Costco last week, I got 6 of them. Way cheaper than Bruery store especially when you count shipping cost. Great find for sure!

    You should have a Bruery and a Costco membership, they're both great.

    Cheaper than a HS member would get it too. Maybe more of their beers would move if they marked them at their lowest selling price.
