Was this useful to anybody?

  1. Yes - but you're still a tool

    84.1%
  2. No - I don't budget for beer, nor do I care what's to come.

    For those that know what a douchenozzel Freddie is at Beverages-4-Less, I was unfortunately in there b/c I had to buy a bomber for a thing at a place...while checking out Chief Douchenozzel flashes a Black Tuesday at me.

    Knowing his upsell and knowning what the beer cost at the release and not interested in buying, I asked "How much?"

    "$85/ea...all being sold east coast, plus shipping! Two cases!"

    Struck me as an attempt to get PMR to recognize what was happening in his own 'backyard'.

    Correct. I was looking forward to Griffon Bruxellois, but considering how many special releases have come out recently, I can't say I'm disappointed to spend the money elsewhere this month.

    Is there one of these threads for the 2013 RS membership?

    A "what's left in the year" thread would seem rather useless considering we haven't received a single beer yet.

    ... seems like a good place to start it, no?

    Sure, it will complement the "What's on tap at Alpine" thread nicely. Throw in a half dozen threads asking what bars/breweries to visit in San Diego, a couple posts asking if anyone has seen bottles of a two month old limited release on shelves, a couple bitchfests about how Market Y didn't get enough of Beer X, a thread hyping the newest $13-for-22oz bomber to hit the market, and we'll be all set!

    They are going to have to rename these.

    I think Patrick already said they would be named the preservation series now after the newest tier of the Society's.

    So every RS Member has the option of buying 2 and 2 free?

    Correct.
    They later opened it up to no limit on the number purchased.

    Sorry to bring back and old thread. A friend just gave me my allotment (switched him to my trustee at last minute to pick it up) ... And besides a 6 bottle tote, I didn't really are any swag.

    I picked up my 2011 beer in March of 2012, so I might have picked up my swag then. What was the swag for 2012?

    Thanks!
