    Listen I’m on here often and nothing I’ve read from you seemed offensive or directed at any one individual. It’s unfortunate that you have lost some friendships, but you need to reflect if they were truly friends at all. Think of all the good you did for the Bruery societies (really just HS and future HS members), but whose keeping track. We no longer have to hear complaints that Hoarders don’t have enough time to buy beer before RS. In all seriousness you truly spearheaded a lot of changes across the societies for the better. Keep your head up and keep championing for us all. As you said it’s just beer and those friends need to remember that too.

    Random question, was Cordial BBLs Terreux only, or did I just miss it somehow last year (I was Bruery/Terreux mix)?

    Was a Hoarder’s exclusive Terreux beer - all Hoarders got two bottles in their membership.

    Yes, and if anyone wants one let me know. It was definitely a swing and a miss for me.

    Drinking All the Chocolate Cows right now. Fantastic! Reminds me of the crust of an ice cream sandwich.

    Opened my last Apfel. Very glad they are re-brewing that one! Such a nice balance of bright apple flavor up top and the brandy/wheatwine underneath.

    Cracked my Brycescotti tonight with not super high expectations after Rue’d Attitude. It’s excellent, though! Coffee is the dominant adjunct that comes through, but the chocolate and almonds are there too. Debating stocking up on this one!

    FWIW I was at Mr K's today and they had some Mash (2015-2016?, didn't check the bottle, just assuming) on the shelves still if you're local

    It's been a surprisingly long time since I've opened a bottle of straight up Black Tuesday. Had all of the variants. Anniversary box, Red Wine barrel, etc.

    Just opened a 2019 for the game and the base still as good or better than anything I've had since. Granted, I have to admit that the 2019 is way less hot than I've had in previous years. Great job Bruery.

    Opened a Terreusco and a batch 50 G.F.A.R. last night for the game. batch 50, first time in about 7 years since i had it, still tasted solid but felt like it was a few years past its peak.

    Terreusco to me was amazing. wish i had bought more than one of those.

    My friend & I devoured it . What a treat!

    Had a Churriosity can Friday night and the Cinnamon Whisky barrel mellowed out. Less of the candied cinnamon taste and more balanced and creamy with the dulce de leche/lactose.

    Had a Muffin Stuffin can yesterday and the nose was great, fresh baked blueberry muffins. Too much cinnamon though takes some away from the blueberry. IMO, the cinnamon wasn't necessary in this.

    How long are you aging it for? To me that beer gets better and better the longer you let it sit.

    I thought it was good. It tastes like a Queen Anne Cordial Cherry. If you don't like liquid candy then I can understand the displeasure.

    I would agree. I bought three bottles in 2017 and drank one fresh, at one year, and at two years. I did note the chocolate was nicer after two years, and definitely flavorful (just less intense in my opinion than Cows). It's a very fine beer, but with the price point there are just many other ways I'd rather spend my Bruery dollars.

    I have one more Churriosity, will compare it. Hoping they'll release it again.

    I've yet to open a can of muffin stuffin that has too much cinnamon. Cinnamon ruins some beers for sure, but imo was spot on. Blueberry forward and chocolate.

    The way you describe it sounds delicious (and that's how I assumed it would taste) but I've now opened two and they taste the same. The sour stout gives it that "old port that I opened 3 weeks ago" taste.

    I loved Smore Bbls, that one worked for me. Maybe it was the cherries that turned me off.

    The last email I got on Friday mentions February new beers and society social on Tuesday next week. Which should be today. I got used to the 10am sharp email and allocation update, but they may not be doing it the same anymore.

    Per their IG story it looks like Terreux is no longer closed to the public for the entire Society Social Tuesday now? They're opening earlier (2 PM) but it states that Terreux will be open to the public at 8 PM. In the past I've noticed the 7-8 o'clock hour is one of the busiest times of the day on SMM or SST, so that's kind of disappointing.

    Thanks for the feedback. We've tried to get these communications into the "Tasting Room Events" section of your members emails - also have had a few stories. Cleary, though, communication wasn't as clear as we'd like so we'll work on improving for next month. First Tuesday of each month we'll have the Society Social at The Bruery - Terreux Tasting Room (unless otherwise noted). Members will get the chance to preview all the new beers for the month. Always feel free to reach out our team at society@thebruery.com with any clarifying questions. Hope you enjoy the beers tonight!

    - Daniel

    Finally got my bottles of Aloha from my trustee. Drinking now and...holy fuck is this hot. Great heavy toasted coconut and macadamia flavors, but damn, this one needs to sit for a while.

    Solid weekday offering, no doubt. Can't wait to have it in a year or two.

    Whoa. They actually lowered the price point on regular White Chocolate. Fascinating.

    I'm confused by the price point on Love Bites. $13 a can for non-BA? I guess strawberries are just that expensive? They had an Instagram pic that showed barrels, but nowhere on the description does it mention being BA.

    Also interested to see if the small allocations for Raspberry WC and the Wee Heavy are to make sure a little goes around or if they're actually super limited...

    They had the bottles in the fridge last night at the Society Social, I didn't see anyone purchase any, but they were there at Terreux.

    Agreed, the hours are everywhere and pretty inconsistent right now. All the signs on the door said it was Closed to the public yesterday, members only, despite on IG saying they opened at 8 PM for the public. The only days I make it up there are typically the end of the week unless it's Society Social Tuesday so it's not a big deal for me, but that would be annoying if you're local.

    They replied to my comment on instagram that love bites is partially ba, weird that can doesn’t mention, and I bet at least 2 more bottles will be in allocations when they reset bottles

    Wonder if they lowered it because, now that it is distributed all over, it tends to sit on shelves and sell at really cheap prices, compared to what we can buy them at even with our discount (at least they seem to here in MN).
