    Anyone have any idea or insider information as to what the members' hoodies will/are going to look like?

    I haven't seen a hoodie for sale at the brewery so I have no idea. Hoping to stop in tomorrow and I'll ask.

    Do you know the style (zip/draw-string) or color? Any information would be appreciated.

    Sorry, I don't, we are still back and forth on a few different styles, don't want to put out bad info

    Not trying to be a d*ck but it's kind of odd to ask people to buy something (with a Friday deadline) with no knowledge of how it will look...

    Does anyone have any information or leads, as to when this first release is supposed to be for the Reserve Society? Or the Initial Party? It seems like it has been a while since we have had an update and its Mid-April.

    Last Friday when I asked I was told we would be getting an email shortly. Was also told the release of WWBV was moved into May. Not very helpful but those were the answers I got.

    I am going to stop in there in the next hour or so to try the new beer. I'll ask again and see if I get a better answer.

    Just got back. Damn kids are really interfering with my drinking. Updates are: The St Bretta is great as I expected. Bottling tomorrow so should be for sale by Thursday but said definitely Friday. Chad was brewing today so no one to update on when the members party is going to be.

    do members get a crack at st. bretta bottles or will we just have to find them @ retail?

    I'm guessing it's going retail but I didn't ask. Taproom purchases you get 15% discount being a member.

    Yea, you don't need to buy them online, St. Bretta is not a limited release, IIRC it's one of the four large foeders so I think it'll be on the shelves with the likes of Vieille and Surette, there should be plenty of it. (someone correct me if I'm wrong)... same reason why Vieille & Surette aren't online for purchase. But you should still be able to get 15% off at the tap room like DBD mentioned.

    When you click on each beer it will say the bottle limit in the description.

    That's some on-top-of-it detective work. Hoping these don't 86 before the email goes out...that would be bad.

    Hmmm. While I don't want to miss out on anything, I'm not so sure about ordering anything right this instant...

    [LOL - edit, and the e-mail shows up 30 seconds later.]

    Bummer, the release is on the weekend of a friend's wedding.

    Im assuming these allocations are in addition to the 2 bottles included in the membership (Nightmare, Origins Grand Cru, Petite Sour Peach/Apple Whiskey, and Surette Reserva Leopold)? That's not explicitly stated in the email or storefront.

    Is the Surette bottles that are for sale the same ones you can buy currently? Not talking about the Surette Reserva.

    Yes, they say members only because only members can order online.

    I actually thought it was good news...wait a little longer for more bottles of two different Persica versions? Suffice it to say those large foeders aren't the only wood around...

    Totally agree, but wouldn't mind some for the summer.

    Ha! I agree. I wouldn't mind some Persica today, tomorrow, next week...:cool:

    Either way, the beers on the list sound great and, even though we'll have to wait a little longer, Persica speaks for itself.

    Anyone have any details on how the release parties usually go? When have they started previously and do they have all of the beers on tap that they will be releasing? Trying to plan my trip from Chicago.

    Just talked to Chad. All of the four that went online today are allocation also, so you get two bottles of each with your membership.

    If anyone isn't going to limit out please bm me.

    With the members party does anyone know if you can bring a guest? Curious since I'll have family in that weekend.
