    Just wanted to put a PSA out for all of you Casey fans. Cooper Wine and Spirits in Gleenwood Springs has bottles of Casey B&B Fruit Stand Release and B3 still available for sale at the store. I am seeing a ton of ISO for this and can pull some loons, hommage, bruery (BT, BW, etc).

    Prost!

    Flights from DIA to Aspen are available for the low, low price of $1167. Only a 45 min flight too. You'll need a limo ride to Glenwood though.

    Come on whale hunting high rollers, make it rain!

    Is that an offer? :grinning:

    I calculated $42 in gas alone... I'll pass. I'm cheap.

    Any idea how much they have? Might make the trip if they have a good amount this weekend.

    Not sure on quantity but I know they still had the two peaches, cherry, plum, and Batch 3 left this morning.

    4 Dogs got all 5 variants but only one case of some, will be interesting to see how long they last. Had one of the plums tonight at a locals beer tasting.. must.. resist.. urge.. to.. hoard...

    If you guys front me all of the $$ I'll just buy everything and drive over to Denver for a weekend of wild beering where we tape a 750 of Casey to each limb and end up passed out in a walmart parking lot.

    The plans for a weekend drive to Glenwood may be history... but I'd definitely be IN for this mega Casey tasting.

    I half-drunken-GABF-fueled-beer-hunter-mode-impulse-bought a Blend 2 Saison last week from Small Batch. I then tasted it at WTF and am pretty set. I should part ways with this bottle from some sucker...

    If a Casey tasting is actually organized, I'd be very interested. I can bring beer, lots of it. I had the opportunity to try Sweet Cherry and Sour Cherry at Zwanze, and I was very impressed.

    Did anyone call to see if they had a limit? Would suck to drive up there for 5 bottles. I'm tapped out from the last 3 releases and will sit it out until December.

    *Tapped out from the past month of ridiculousness. December will be my next release attendance as well though (at Casey that is). I'll have to bring some Sahalie for you to try after trying your Arthur last time.

    Word is 4 Dogs is already out of the cherry & blackberry for you weekend shoppers. Both plums and the peach still available, but so much for our planned beer orgy.

    Figures. The slow but steep hype building around Casey is really astounding and exciting. Most of us missed out this time around but the reality is that the future is blindingly bright for Troy and this is just the beginning. And we haven't even gotten to his sours yet!



    Oh right, that's coming in a few months...

    Last beer that wowed me was HF Edward. That was three years ago. I haven't been wowed since. My first sip of B1 and B2 blew me away. Even more than HF. I cannot wait to get more.

    I need assistance from someone located near Glenwood Springs CO. Yes it involves Casey. Please message me for details if you are near Glenwood Springs. Cheers.

    Will be in Glenwwod Springs this weekend (October 25th). Making the trek from S. Dakota. Is there Casey still available anywhere in Glenwood? Bummer the tap room won't be open...but would love to get my hands on a bottle or two. Thanks in advance.

    They posted about some bottle shops nearby that had some, but that was last week. Not sure if the stuff is still around?

    He's releasing new batches of the Fruit Stand beers (just not all at once again) over the next few months, so there will be more Plum, Cherry and Blackberry coming before the year is out.

    I would guess you could find some Saison around at the two stores he listed but doubt any Fruit Stands. Can't hurt to call ahead. Good luck!

    That's because you need to stay at one Friday night to have a chance at his bottles.

    Want to lock down two bottles of Batch 4 of Casey's Saison to keep the vert alive, but dont want to spend the dough as I have too much beer. If anyone wants to buy a couple and set up a trade with me for Avery barrel stuff, Crooked Stave reserve, or others let me know. Would do something like 3-4 reserve beers for the two, depending on which ones. Have plenty of other stuff, as well.

    If any of you that received an invitation for Casey is on the fence about joining, I'd love to split a membership. No invitation for me.
