    Maybe it was in the 16th Anniversary thread. Paul (one of the co-owners) outlined where and when the bottle sharing could happen. I don't recall his ID here...the search continues.

    Speculation is so much fun!!!

    I guess my 2 biggest questions are:

    1.) What is it? (yes, its a blend of barrel aged stouts, but what exactly are those stouts? 1414, Fifteen, 16, BB Stout, BB Cherry Stout, other previously unreleased stouts?)

    2.) Roughly how much was made? (mostly for folks who are considering the drive to CW in hopes of purchasing some at the party if they don't have an allotment ticket. If it was as much as 16 or close, there should be no issues. If the amount corresponds with the brown paper tickets that were sold, then I think folks that were considering coming only if they could buy bottles may back out.)

    Just found out I am going to be back at home on leave and would like to try and grab a ticket if anyone can't go. I have beer or cash for trade

    I would post that in the IP trade specific forum. I don't think there is a location elsewhere for it.

    A few times in this thread it was referenced - here's one:

    To recap, purchasing a ticket here for $5, which we will donate to a local community center, reserves your allocation for up to 8 bottles of Seventeen at $15 each. You may pick these bottles up and pay for them at the designated Seventeen sale site at the brewery on January 24, 2015, anytime between the hours of 3pm and 7pm, CASH ONLY.

    Damn! We haven't even gotten the regular bbs down here yet!
    Hopefully some cherry still up there in 2 weeks.
    Also happy that CW didn't go the way of GI/inbev and jack up their prices:)

    How long was BB cherry around last year? Still available in early February you think?

    At most places it was gone in days. At a few "odd spots" it was around for a few months. Last years was also pretty limited.

    Well, doesn't sound good for early February but will make a trip to the brewery. If they don't have it there, probably screwed.

    So do you want to give any hints of how much 17 there is compared to 16? Or are you having too much fun watching all the stupid posts?

    Any further or more definitive word about bottle sharing during the party? I know people did it last year but most of what I saw was in the tent outside standing in line which can't be done this year due to the much welcomed new setup.

    Yes sir. Last year we had an entire barrel full of 17 taps by 3:00. Needless to say we were all good for the remainder of the evening.

    Looking for a ticket for a non-BA buddy.
    If you have one and can't make the party I'll proxy for you in exchange for 3 bottles from your allotment. Plus I'll toss you a 2013 BCBS 4pk and a Revolution Deths Tar
