    Well I travel to St Pete around once a month and I think this could benefit everyone in the area. This is just talking about releases and such in the area. Does anyone know when cigar city is doing a release, last time I was there they had the year rounds and cider. Usually the cooler has 2-3 bottles in it.

    It's worth noting that we are into the last few days of September and neither Cubano Espresso nor Caffe Americano have appeared. Also, did I miss it or did they never release 6packs of Oktoberfest last month?

    I've noticed they release stuff when they feel like it. That schedule isn't a leash accurate

    Oktoberfest came and went. They decided not can it this year. Not sure what the reason was, but it was draught only.

    They had a number of releases over the summer and it's gone quiet since then.

    I know the bottling line at CCB was taken apart to do some construction, this could be the cause for some delays.

    I just found this out today, as well. Apparently the canning line was down for a moment too.

    They just released details for the October Eggs & Kegs (10/18) and Caffe Americano is going to be on draft for the event so I guess that is a good sign that they at least have brewed some more for the Fall

    Kind of annoying they are charging $5 more for what is essentially just Rare DOS.

    It is Rare Dos that is "extra barrel aged" in "lot barrels"

    Why? Goose Island is charging $60 for a 16.9oz bottle of bourbon county because it aged for longer in a more rare barrel. Longer barrel aging results in more lose due to evaporation and therefore less product per barrel

    You're really trying to defend the price of that Rare bottle? I think that's some BS too.

    I love Rare Dos (especially the batch that came out Christmas time last year). I think it is beer than Rarer. And this is the best Rare Dos I have ever had. Compared to the batch released in June...this has more barrel characteristics and chocolate and less heat when drinking it fresh. Can't wait to try it from the bottle in a few months

    I'll be in town tomorrow, what does this sub think the chances are that Cycle will still have Lost Dos bottles for sale?

    I always trade bottles like this at $4$...as long as I get beer I want, thats all I care about. That said, its almost impossible for me to get Cycle bottles most of the time because I live an hour away...by the time I find out via social media, its too late to make the drive through Tampa traffic to get to St Pete.

    Truthfully I think a lot of Cycles get traded for other Cycles $4$ because they're so hard to get. To take a chance on trading for something other than a well known whale or desired beer and pay shipping just doesn't make sense in most cases. Unless you live across the street and don't have a job it's tough to get every single release, but often you'll end up with 2 of this, 4 of that and trade for the ones you can't get. (IE Pallet 2 for Pallet 4, etc)

    Rare Dos was $20 and these were aged twice as long (12-14 months)...I don't think $5 is a reach. I'm not for the rising prices trend but I don't think Cycle falls into that category, at least yet.

    Ignore Rare and just look at other breweries stout releases, with many not being aged 1 year+: BA Cakes were around $35 (ignoring on-site $), Assassin $30+, Mornin Delight $40 and no barrels, BVDL $50, regular Huna is $20, BA Biscotti & BASS around $30.
    Aside from the best value beers like Parabola and Central Waters, Cycle is right in line or often times cheaper.

    *Doug, please don't read this and realize most are happy to pay even more!
