yeah man. Extras are usually thrown in with trades as a little suprise bonus.
You mean most cost-efficient format.
And are you talking about Hottenroth? Hottenroth is a great value compared to many US Berliners.
Lots of people have had Mrs Stoutfire this year and this is the first report I've seen of infection.
Spoken like a homo sapien who has never driven an Audi...
(Plus, with what I paid for my well-used Audi, I could have bought three more & had enough money leftover to join the Reserve Society...or bought one brand new F-150...)
I know. It's amazing how popular IPAs are even though they turn into poisonous donkey urine after a month.
I once accidentally drank a two month old Heady Topper. Luckily, I live close to a hospital. They were able to pump my stomach before I began digesting that swill.
The freshness Nazis never cease to amaze. Thanks for the chuckle.
What makes it worse is when the brewery puts the canned on date on the bottom of the can and the trader still sends it out 8 weeks later!!!
So you disagree with the tastes of others. Fine. And they are Nazis. Cute.
I too would be pretty pissed if BT was infected...have 28 breaking my porch tomorrow.
I've had 3 of my bottles so far, it's rock solid awesomeness.
Well said. I like you a lot. This might be my favorite post of all time on BeerAdvocate. Seriously.
I'll add that I treat most Bruery bottles like an infection. I try to distance myself as far away as I can from any of their overpriced and overrated bottles. I've enjoyed a few Bruery bottles, but they have NEVER justified the cost.
Y'all should start a Bruery haters thread. Oh, wait, this thread has already turned into one. Whatever.
This thread proves that you can't spell advocate without the (h)ate.
I just read an article about the city of Placentia being infected. That probably explains things.
I find your post puzzling.
Your sarcasm and condescending tone lead me to believe this is not your first foray into Internet forums, but your inability to cope with hyperbole and dogma suggest otherwise.
On topic: Brett pedio lacto diacetyl walezbro!
Inability to cope? Perhaps, but the Berserker in my hand helps
To each their own. I don't have anything against folks who like super fresh IPAs/DIPAs. I am one. That said I have nothing against those who are more chill about it. Ultimately,I don't like anyone criticizing anyone else's personal taste. I likely read too deep and took my stand on a soapbox at the bottom of a mud puddle.
Those are not infected at all. Had them all and I'll add that Mash and M&G are probably some of the best brews that came out this year. Underrated if you ask me.
Man that's good to know.
I find it wierd that people still call WC infected. If an infection could live in an 18% ABV beer we would see sour beers to that ABV. The bruery would have that market cornered since most of the bugs die off around 10%. Ebony and Oak is the prime example of why many BA beers are brewed to higher ABV to kill off these bugs, because if you don't you get an infected stout.
Should of been more specific how do you do the test before purchasing?
i'm pretty sure those beers are so high in ABV that most infections wouldn't be able to take hold.
There's plenty of GOOD reasons to hate the Bruery, and sour beers that aren't supposed to be sour is a VERY GOOD reason. With how much they charge for pretty much all their beers, there's no excuse for how poor their quality control is. I will admit to liking Autumn Maple, but I also didn't buy it. I refuse to buy any of their beers until they bring their prices back in line with other good breweries such as Founders, Bells, The Alchemist, Sierra Nevada, New Holland, Great Lakes, Central Waters and many more. Every single brewery listed produces better beer at a cheaper price than the Bruery.
i don't know if white chocolate *is* infected, but it sure tasted like it was.
Maybe he's one of those people that has the ability to energy test their beers. If so, I think you do this:
Stand with your feet together. Grab a beer off the shelf and hold it against your abdomen with both hands. Keep your elbows tucked against your sides (Ignoring the snickering and pointing from other patrons) Take a deep breath in and then release it. Notice how your body will lean forward or lean backward. Depending on the reaction to the infected beer, you may need to take a step to catch yourself.
While everyone is here, what is the best varient of bois?
Rye in my opinion
I believe there were 5 Golden Rings
I think you don't understand the concept of the RS. The $300 you pay, you get $300+ in beer. You also get access to events, discounts on purchases and access to beers that only RS & HS have access to. So you get $300 in beer/merch for your $300.
I joined RS for 2014; on top of getting $300 worth of bee/merch, I don't have to go through the pain in the @ss it took to get 3 bottles of 2013 BT when it went on public sale on the website. Not only that, for 2014, only RS & HS get Rum Barrel BT - they're only making enough for 2 bottles for each member. No more for anyone else.
My $295 for 2014 RS gets me:
-- 1 bottle of Bois
-- 1 bottle of Sans Pagaie
-- 2 bottles of Chocolate Rain
-- 1 piece of high quality merchandise
-- 1 bottle of So Happens Its Tuesday
-- 2 bottles of Rum Barrel Aged Black Tuesday
-- 2 bottles Barrel Aged 6 Geese-A-Laying
Yup, I'm really being taken advantage of here. I feel bad for me!
That's almost worse. "Hey, we don't think you're gonna spend enough money to DESERVE to buy half of our beer lineup this year, so we're gonna need a $300 down payment to secure the total amount you plan on spending."
We're buying beer, not putting a security deposit on a condo.
I count nine bottles of beer for that $295. Go buy a homebrew kit.
Why do people just assume anyone can pick up a kit and make homebrew? I'm not talking about the technical side of it. Not everyone has time to homebrew. I have a very well paying job but, with commute, my day starts at 7:20am and ends at 7pm. I also have 2 year old twins and an 8 1/2 month old. I'd rather buy my beer and spend the time with my family. That time spent playing with my kids and seeing how happy they are to spend time with Daddy is worth WAY more than the $ I'd save by homebrewing.
The city of Placentia is not infected. The streets are simply lined with White Oak Sap trees.
I've been homebrewing for a few years.
I wouldn't attempt to make 90% of the beers Reserve Society gets.
I make some decent beers but homebrewing is far from a substitute for what The Bruery puts out.
My curiosity with Mrs. Stoutfire is peaked. I'm going to a buddy's bottleshare on Thursday night, so guess what I'm going to be bringing? I'll report back on my highly scientific findings.
Switching gears back to one of the themes in this thread, I'm always puzzled by the comments relating to cost. If something is too expensive for your comfort level, don't buy it. The argument of "do you know how much homebrew you can make? or do you know how much beer I can buy from (insert your favorite "reasonably" priced brewery here)?" is weak. Everyone makes their own cost/value assessment in their lives and clearly The Bruery has enough customers who think that the cost/value of their beers is fair. There are some breweries that I don't care for that have a big following, but I'm not going to bash them for their success. I'm going to recognize and accept that I'm simply in the minority.
@wyatt -- my favorite Bois is brandy, but they're all pretty great.
At least we know people will jump to conclusions and trash a brewery before anything's proven...
I've had 2013 Bois, White Oak, Melange #3, Cacaonut, and White Chocolate. I got zero infection out of any of them. If everything in this line is 'infected' then it's a slight interference and nothing more, and barely noticeable to most people. Even Ebony & Oak was only a mild tartness, and it went well with the beer. Now I haven't had multiple bottles of anything yet so it's possible there's something amiss, but to trash a brewery for "quality control" when it's very possible they're not fully aware of the extent of the problem, that's just shitty. I understand people hate the Bruery because of their high prices, and I have a speech about that I'll keep from citing since it'd make a lot of those people mad, but the benefit of the doubt should always be given. Some of you guys are acting like this was a planned attempt to extort your money and sell you bad beer, which is just absolutely stupid as hell. No one at the Bruery, or hell any brewery, is sitting around planning to put bad beer out just to mess with people. The assumptions are just ridiculous.
Carry on with the hating.
Me, too. +1. Like. Yeah.
Their Humulus Lager is definitely not tart, I've had two growlers over the past two weeks and both were excellent. The Black Tuesday is drinking just fine too...
I would assume he means "off" as in "off flavors" as in flawed.
I assume this is why my White Oak I had a couple months ago tasted like garbage juice? Or is that one always like that?
