    I went on Monday and it was packed. Showed up at 8:30 but thankfully had a friend who showed up at 7:30 and still had not gotten his 1st round of pours so we were able to have him get us pours. Took him over an hour to get a pour.

    We need Elon Musk to finish his hyperloop. I always wanted to ride in that tube that they used to use at the bank drive through.

    He actually just started working on the prototype! It will be interesting to see how this goes.

    If I can truly get from the Bay Area to LA in 30 minutes, you'll have another regular for SMM.

    It'll get you to LA in 30. Then there's the 2-3 hours of traffic you gotta sit through.

    HAHAHAHA. So true. Even if he takes the train, which there is a stop a short walk from Terreux, it would be another hour at least.

    By the time he get's the hyperloop built, I can use my personal teleportation device to get me the last 30 miles from down town LA to Placentia.:astonished:

    Anyone wanna share their "wants" from the Terreux "blasts from the past" and Feb. 14ths "new and archive society merch?"

    Beer-wise, I'd like to try Filmishmish and The Wanderer. Merch-wise, I'm crossing my fingers for a leisure bag! (which is probably a long shot)

    Also, I'm in Houston and found Frucht:Boysenberry at a local shop. Like the other Fruchts I've had, it's delicious! But the best part was that I happened to find a 2012 Rueuze on a shelf full of 2016 Rueuze! Idk if the bruery snuck it in, or if they shipped it on accident, but either way, jackpot!

    There's a place nearby that still has 2014 Rueuze and Oude Tart on the shelf. I go grab one every once in a while to keep from depleting my stash.

    Blast from the past? Ichigo Highway, Otiose, Oui Oui, Pinotlambicus, and Windowsill.

    I was asked by some peeps about what they should redo earlier this year and I was all over Ichigo Highway and got shut down real quick. Everyone agrees that beer is great but it's a bit difficult to do. Strawberries in general, are a pain to work with.

    Windowsill would be a great option and I would think with Jeremy driving Terreux any of those wine mixes would be easy enough to do.

    What do you think of the beers so far?

    The turnout for Society Member Monday at our Bruery Terreux Tasting Room on Monday was incredible! Thanks to all who came out (and waited patiently) to taste our latest releases. See what members are saying about them on Untappd - Pommereux, Mocha Wednesday (2017), Frucht: Boysenberry, White Chocolate (2017), Mélange #3 (2017) and Tart of Darkness (2017). In fact, when Mocha Wednesday (2017) gets a couple more ratings under its belt, it could find itself in the Top Rated list on Untappd, joining Black Tuesday Reserve and Chocolate Rain. Don't miss out on getting your hands on bottles during this current allocations period, which ends this Sunday, February 12.

    Our next Society Member Monday event is Monday, March 6 at our Bruery Terreux Tasting Room. We'll open at noon that day to help make your Monday more comfortable and enjoyable.

    Exactly two months after that is our 9th Anniversary Festival on Saturday, May 6. Learn more about this cornerstone Society event below!

    Now in its ninth year, our Anniversary Festival has become one of the most highly anticipated beer festivals each year. It’s a celebration of world class beer with friends of ours from some of the most highly regarded and award-winning breweries. In addition to the beer, the festival invites local coffee, craft soda, food and gift vendors to feature their crafts as well.

    All of the net proceeds made from ticket sales as well as sponsorship funds benefit The Boys & Girls Club of Central Orange Coast. Their mission is to promote the positive and healthy development of youth by providing services that build the skills, civility and self-confidence necessary to succeed in a competitive world. The organization serves youth ages 6-18 in the cities of Costa Mesa, Irvine, Newport Beach and Orange, and is laser focused on providing a first-class mentoring experience and the support system they need to succeed in the 21st Century.

    We share in their belief that every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential and are proud to support this organization through our 9th Anniversary Festival.

    Will be fun times again. Slight pre-game on the train ride up. Walk over to the venue. Give the Ducks the finger as I pass on by. Drink/Eat/Be Merry. Walk back to train station while giving the Ducks the finger again. Train back down.

    Hopefully this time the train ride will not include us stopping in Oceanside for an additional 30minutes while police are called to remove 2 unruly individuals.

    Valentine's Day is a Tuesday, so perhaps we'll see a range of beers that incorporate Black Tuesday. With their humor, I could also see the BBLS series pop up. Or possibly a bunch of beers with chocolate (do they make any with flowers?) - OR, maybe they just put up stuff that's burning a hole on the warehouse shelves :wink:

    They need to expand on what the choices for lunch will be. Previous years have been quite disappointing, especially since you can't even bring snacks in.

    Reserve Society Trustees & Taproom Privileges?
    Can I have my trustee fill my 32oz growler? I am always asked for my ID to find my account, even though I am handing them the 32oz RS growler. Being that my trustee drives down the 57 on a regular basis, I would love it if he could fill my growler on his way where we live.

    The answer is no. I had an at length discussion with @BruerJoel who told me that while that was ok in the past, the feature was rolled back I think last year. Only the member can fill a growler and they must verify it per your ID.

    (of course you may always get lucky)

    On a side note, is it just me or did ticket prices go up again? $70 for tickets! We're getting a bit crazy now.

    Saxmusik45 Initiate (0) Nov 18, 2011 California

    Pretty sure it's been $60 for at least the last 4 years. So yeah, looks like a $10 price hike. I wonder if they'll provide the "taxable value" on the tickets like Firestone does for FWIBF. That way, you can not have any qualms over deducting the rest on your taxes, for those of us who qualify for itemized deductions. Every little bit helps, right?

    I'm not a tax attorney but from my understanding you cannot deduct something that you get a gain from (like a charity dinner, or beer).

    Edit: It is tax season right? - I guess a portion of it could be deductible, like you said if they said what that value was.

    Gifts that benefit you
    The time factor of gift eligibility isn't the only misconception taxpayers have, according to Parquette. "We see a lot of disallowed claims because the donor received value." By IRS definition, charitable contributions represent gifts given without reciprocity. Supporting a charitable organization by buying merchandise or attending an event puts you into the got-something-in-return category. The price you pay for food, wrapping paper or magazines sold in fundraisers cannot be fully deducted; only the difference between your purchase price and fair market value qualifies. For example, paying $10 for a roll of wrapping paper from a school group that carries an $8 price tag in retail outlets gives you a $2 deduction. Likewise, buying a $50 ticket to a charitable event that includes a meal translates into a $20 deduction after subtracting the $30 you would have paid for that meal in a restaurant.

  31. Saxmusik45

    Saxmusik45 Initiate (0) Nov 18, 2011 California

    Yeah, I mean two Firestone tickets cost $180, only $20 of which they state is taxable on the ticket. That's $160 worth of cash charitable contributions. Why wouldn't you claim that if you could?

    Does anyone know the vintage of the White Chocolate available for Growler fills?

    The Tasting room site doesn't list the vintage and the 16.6% ABV doesn't align with 2017's 13.8%

    For me, 100% MW. I just had one the other night and it reminded me how good and balanced it really was. For my tastes CR was way too sweet. I didn't even buy any for 2016 due to how it tasted on tap in the Tasting room. This year I maxed out on the MW, plus the reviews coming in have been very strong.


    Barrel-aged releases (very limited supply): White Chocolate, Mélange No. 3, Saule anniversary ale 100% aged in bourbon barrels (Saule is French for “willow”), Mash with a special ingredient, So Happens It’s Tuesday, Tart of Darkness, Sans Pagaie, Oude Tart, Sour in the Rye
