    Drinking a Rued Attitude, silky mouthfeel, tart cherries definitely there up front with coffee after taste. Was expecting a stronger coffee taste like SHIT Coffee, which I love, since previous members mentioned. Drink fresh for sure, glad I bought another one.

    I got my name printed on a few bottles and recognition from some of the Brue crew, but nothing I can pawn

    Yep, sorry, I read you as meaning going from individual 750 to 375.

    I'm with you on the 6 count. But, I do think from a cost standpoint the price per bottle would go up. Printing the custom box for two sixes is certainly more than one twelve. Labor to pack probably goes up slightly. Pricier to ship for folks outside the area. It's death by a thousand cuts for Bruery in terms of being able to offer at an acceptable price point. My hunch is that they don't actually make any money on the Hoarder boxes. They're a loss leader to create an HS perk (and testing ground for potential releases like Pie Happy)... Which is also why even though I also would be happy for spares to find a home with loving RS people, I don't think that will happen because their main function is as an HS exclusive perk.

    I’m passing in this month’s Hoarders box... but only because it was such an expensive month. I love the Hoarders boxes as-is, but the FOMO on this one isn’t strong enough to top $1000 on monthly purchases (including renewal). I hope I’ll get a second chance later, but I’m holding future $ for Black Tuesday!!!!

    I always get a laugh when the reserve plebs come asking for the trickle down.

    I always laugh when HS gets their panties in a bunch when HS beers trickledown. Those tears are the nectar of the gods.

    If it goes to RS and HS I'd expect HS to be allowed multiple while RS prays to their god that we don't buy it all in the first 24 hours.

    I have most of them but I didn't pay a lot extra for any since they all came from The Bruery. A rebrew will be the same, but different since the originals will have a lot of time in the bottles. I haven't had a BA six geese in awhile but the last one I had was getting fairly sour.

    Split a Gin BA Imperial Cabinet with friends tonight. That thing is BOMB. Perfectly herbal and they nailed the creaminess of a gin fizz. Will be stocking up next time that one’s available. My favorite Terreux release this year by a mile.

    Actually I heard the Bruery is collecting the tears from HS and adding them to a 2020 release...which will be a RS exclusive...because then they'll be able to collect more HS tears for the 2021 release...

    Hahaha... same!!! I want my PB&J but not in a weekday set (I already have multiples of those others at the moment.)

    I need to save my $$$ for the upcoming BT10 box and the Black Tuesday Release events. The Bruery has really caused a dent in the ole' pocketbook this month!!

    Agreed, one saving grace is that '18 BT and '19 GM are some of the better versions of those beers we've seen in a while.

    I probably would have gotten one (I still have one remaining).
    But my real struggle is with the cuvees. I finally opened the Bruery cuvees I got from the archiversary sale and loved them and was hoping to get more of them. Not enough to pay for a bundle thats half terreux cuvees though in these times of beer$$ need

    Interesting. Having not have had either Reserve or Grand Reserve, is one significantly better than the other?

    General consensus at the share I brought each too was that Reserve was a better beer than base BT, but not that noticeably better: in fact, some members of the share preferred base BT. On the other hand, Grand Reserve blew people away.

    I should note that these tastings were done blind, but it's super, super obvious which one is which.

    Going to echo the above. Reserve is good, but you can just grab regular ol BT and be satisfied. GR is noticeably better and worth seeking out over BT.

    I am a little surprised by a few of the recent offerings that haven’t got much mention here. Yes, Chocolate Reign was amazing but I have really enjoyed Island time, the new s.h.i.t., and all the cows. As much as I try to avoid extreme abv beers the Bruery does them so well. I am looking forward to being a hoarder in 2020, my bank account... not so much.
