Anyone get in? Wondering if they announced yet?
If you got in Congrats!
The silence tells me notifications not out yet, I hope!
Still nothing for me, I'm just gonna assume I didn't get it.
Check Spam folders maybe?
They said e-mail's are being sent out later today.
this sounds awesome, any details on what the event is, for us poor non-hoarder peons?
Your name was pulled in our random drawing for our first ever Hoarders Society Blending Session!
This exciting (and free!) event will take place at our Barrel Warehouse on November 17th. Due to space and logistics, we are only offering you 1 ticket to this event. If you are unable to attend the event, please email us ASAP so that we can draw another name to attend in your place.
Below are some details on the event. Don't forget to bring some additional fruits or spices if you want to play around with those flavor infusions.
Can't wait to see you there!
Upon arrival, members will be split into small teams. Each team will receive an array of barrel-aged and non-barrel-aged beers to blend as they see fit.
We will provide general guidelines regarding what ratio of certain beers may be used in the final blend. A panel of judges will select the best blend, and that will be released to the the 2014 Hoarders Society!
We will provide the blending beers, palate cleansing snacks, water, note-taking supplies, a few coffee presses (in case you'd like to cold press additional ingredients such as coffee, fruit or spices), and some tasty snacks for afterwards. We will not be providing any of the extra ingredients for the press infusions, so if you're feeling adventurous, you're welcome to put your creativity to the test and bring your own ingredients to the event. Please keep in mind that the ingredients you supply must be available for us to order in large quantities if chose for the winning blend.
Date: Sunday, November 17th
Time: 2pm - 5pm
Location: 1174 N. Grove Street, Anaheim, CA, 92806
Tickets are not transferable and may not be shared.
I just got my invite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This sounds so awesome - hopefully it is a success so they do it again next year.
I got in as well! I can't wait for this weekend. Saturday I'll be going to Barrel release party. Then on Sunday I will be blending beer with The Bruery, what a great weekend it's going to be!
Cool. I wonder if this will count as Pilot beer #1 that they added instead of Bruery merch, and if so, I am going to need someone to blend Black Tuesday w/ Cherry OT and Windowsill.
I'm in!!!!! Wooooo
It will be the First Pilot series beer.
Members who don't get an invite, should post their blending ingredient ideas / formulas here so that those of us that will be there can try some of them.
Or those of us like me that will have no clue what the fuck they are doing
Not in, but I hope everyone has a great time. I also know who to blame if the pilot beer sucks.
Blame me for sure
Something sour, if possible, would be nice, since next year the line up is not nearly as stocked as this year. : )
Guys guys guys. Did we already forget about our plan to create the worst beer possible? I'll bring the Asparagus and Durian.
...Or just add some White Oak to anything that is otherwise good.
Shit, I forgot. Go nuts ya'll!
The hate of Durian actually varies from person to person. For example, I would love some Durian BT because to me it has something of a creme brule flavor.
I'd be looking to utilize the aromatics.
I should be there as well. Need to figure out what kind of ingredients to bring.
And? That varies from person to person as well, I tend to smell honey and vanilla from Durian, that said, I do understand what you are trying to say about it.
You guys better make some good blends ya hear?!
ISO: tart asparagus creme brûlée!
You forgot smoked
Smoked Salmon Black Tuesday?
I am in also. Going to be awesome.
No invite for me, swigs a black tuesday*
Nice - I'll look for you there!
Sounds like you guys are going to have the best time ever!
Oh shit, I already did BT and Cherry OT last night, I should have had a bottle of Windowsill open, too.
Next time... for science. How was the OT+C/BT? It is on my list of things to try; I am really liking Melange 1 again.
After hearing a recommendation for BT + Hottenroth on here a while back I tried that this weekend while sharing a bottle with friends. It turned out pretty solid. The low abv of the berlinnerwiesse really helped lighten the BT.
Does anyone know the ratios for Melange 1? At the BT release party I didn't care for the Melange 1 mixed in with the BT variants, but I had a bottle last week by itself and dig the current one.
I was just doing splashes of OT+C with the BT last night and loving it. Next time I'm definitely adding in some Windowsill.
You can run the numbers based on the %abv. Rounding the numbers if BT was 20%abv, and OT was 10% and you know M1 is 15% then it would make the ratio 50:50. I think previously it was closer to 2/3OT:1/3 BT and this batch is closer to 60%OT and 40%BT. Don't have any old bottles around so don't hold me to those numbers, just the method of figuring it out.
I spoke with one of the guys from The Bruery about this earlier today, and it sounds like it's going to be a really cool experience. I'll be there, and I'm really looking forward to it. Really cool for them to embrace the interactive side of things with infusions and a fan-created DIY-blending sort of thing.
I'm guessing there will be a decent list to include many of their blending staples/standards like Black Tuesday, White Oak Sap, Bois/Anniversary... Maybe some sour stuff like Oude Tart, Sour in the Rye... Hopefully some interesting one-offs or limited barrels of different expressions of some of the above. It didn't sound like they had completely locked down a list, but it sounded like they're looking to have a good variety, and that they'll be announcing a list of some of the specific things we can expect to see later this week-- with at least a little bit of time to get our creative juices flowing and plan out some infusions/concoctions in advance of the actual event.
Anyone got any preliminary thoughts of interesting adjuncts/infusions you'd like to try? Or some kind of dream combination of beers you're considering putting together?
I'll probably bring some Guatemalan Acatenango Gesha coffee, and maybe work an infusion with some kind of dried tropical fruit (dried mango slices?) to go along with the tropical fruitiness (and general awesomeness) of the coffee... I'm thinking equal parts BT and Bois... Maybe a kiss of Oude Tart or SitR (or White Oak Sap, depending on how "tart" it is) to brighten things up a tad... Also kinda hoping they have something lower ABV but malty to bring it down a bit in sweetness and intensity (cue Bruery strong/sweet jokes here)...
I don't know. We'll see... And this is obviously all subject to change based on whatever beers they actually offer, and what those specific kegs/barrels/vintages taste like.
I'll probably also bring some unsweetened, shaved coconut and also some toasted coconut, just because that shit is awesome to use for infusions. Really curious to see how crazy things get with the beers we'll be able to play with and the combinations people come up with. Should be really interesting.
I will be very disappointed if nobody makes Taco Tuesday. Whether that's through french pressed al pastor and roasted tomatillos or just an infusion of taco seasonings i'll leave up to those attending...
I expect nothing but the best from those of you going. My wife votes durian, but she doesn't even drink beer so her opinion doesn't count.
