    Is there a document somewhere that lists what Bruery beers get into wider distribution? I almost traded for stuff that ended up getting released a couple times.

    No, but I nominate you to spearhead the effort of creating one.

    The only limited beers that got distributed, that I know of, are tart of darkness and oude tart. They were limited first and then released for distribution the next year.

    I know the Bruery has confirmed that Black Tuesday will not be distributed at least for the next few years.

    I buy allocations, but they don't usually get to stores until well after I've bought them.

    This isn't exactly what you're looking for, but it should help as someone else can go through and cut it down. Below is a list of RS releases and prices for 2011 and 2012.

    Note: This is a list of what I ordered, and for 2012 there was some stuff that I'd already tried in 2011 that I didn't re-order, so it isn't listed under the 2012 section (example: Tart of Darkness). In 2011 I ordered at least one of absolutely everything so it should be complete, and in 2012 I ordered at least one of everything I hadn't tried yet from 2011.

    2011 RS, full price listed (doesn't include CA tax or 15% discount)
    813 Provisions Series: Old Richland $10.00

    Yeah, I should have edited that. The data is a direct copy/paste from my RS account, and I create the .txt file with it so I'd have a list of prices for later as I won't have access to my RS account in 2013. I think the reason they but "RS ONLY" is so people who were buying 2013 memberships wouldn't try buying the beer that was showing as well...

    The more "limited release" beers we'll distribute are Smoking Wood (Rye barrel version, although Bourbon may be distributed in the future), Rueuze, Oude Tart, Sour in the Rye, White Oak, Anniversary and Tart of Darkness. This may change from time to time, and perhaps some markets will see very limited distribution of other beers, but generally this is what'll get distributed that is barrel aged.

    Cheers,
    Patrick

    they are both great but we see prices of $19.99 here in AZ
    Smoking Wood is super flavorful but you have to dig smoked beers. Rueuze is awesome too but it feels to me like a gueuzey saison. Personally, in my location i rank these among the best things on a shelf from any brewery right now.

    Don't you hate morons that make stupid posts like the one right after the post you started this thread with? Some people have nothing better to do than be an idiot I guess....ruins the site.

    Thanks to those that made informative efforts to answer the question....learned a lot about Brewery beers I did not even know were out there! Thanks!!!

    We get stuff like Smoking Wood, and White Oak and whatnot pretty easily here.. Autumn Maple and stuff like that.

    White Oak is pretty tasty I think, and I actually liked 5 Golden Rings this year, which was on the shelves at a couple of places.
