    Throwing the word "ale" in there was out of early paranoia. It originated as a barleywine style ale so as not to confuse consumers between beer and wine, and also avoid unnecessary regulation or taxation. Nowadays it's sometimes used out of nostalgia, but it's neither a different style nor a sub-style from barleywine.

    None, its is just an over explanation of the what style beer it is.

    17D. English Barleywine
    Overall Impression

    A showcase of malty richness and complex, intense flavors. Chewy and rich in body, with warming alcohol and a pleasant fruity or hoppy interest. When aged, it can take on port-like flavors. A wintertime sipper.

    22C. American Barleywine
    Overall Impression

    A well-hopped American interpretation of the richest and strongest of the English ales. The hop character should be evident throughout, but does not have to be unbalanced. The alcohol strength and hop bitterness often combine to leave a very long finish.

    They sure has hell are not selling at the brewery. Thats why.
    If Cycle was at any fest in CA they can distro the state for a certain period of time.

    Thats why during March you see beers from all over hit shelves or bars, they sing a 30 distro with a beer house and they can bring in what they want.

    I picked up some bottles a few weeks back at Cycle. I was in there on a Thursday night around 7PM and there were only 3 people in there & 2 were bartenders

    Right I get slow sales.... But distribution across the USA to Cali? Haha

    Why not other areas in FL beyond St Pete and Tampa? Why not another East coast state?

    So yeah I'd like to know why SD?

    I've heard nothing as of yet. I believe the last 2 years they sold tickets on MLK day weekend. After last years debacle with infected bottles on TBBW, I would think cycle wants to pull out all the stops this year so couldn't imagine why they'd cancel.

    That's true!! Their crew does always seem to have a good time during and after BA day, but Doug is Doug and might just say the hell with it. At least if they do weekday bottles, we don't have to line up early to get them any more.

    Does their crew ever seem to have a good time? I get the exact opposite vibe from their employees every single time i'm there.

    You might be right on the bartenders most of the time, but having been at cycle ba day 2 of the past 3 years and also hanging out at cycle after ba day each of the last three years, Doug and crew definitely were having a good time, albeit just a wee bit drunk, but a good time nonetheless!

    Overheard someone ask this a few weekends ago. Bartender said something about having trouble finding a host? Not sure if issue with shuffle board club or some other host duty.

    But could be a game of telephone here. If someone asks the bartender they may be able to give you the direct answer.

    I asked a bartender this weekend and was told it will be at the shuffleboard courts for sure, and that they are just sorting out details before announcing. Not saying this is true, just reporting what I was told.

    The events in St Pete that Friday are enough to make a liver hurt with out the other days. Wakefield event, foeder for thought, BA Day, and Magnanimous event.

    So I guess that does raise the question of who is going for the grand slam of beer week events.

    Thursday- AC Rad Party
    Friday - Cycle BA Day (and/or those other St pete events)
    Saturday - CCB Hunahpus
    Sunday - 7th Sun Hang over day

    It's an impressive few days of beer events.

    Answer: Only those guys who believe doing so will give them some sort of "legendary" status among other bottle-release overnight line-sitters.

    It won't take any sleuthing to figure out who's done it because -- like every good CrossFitter, vegan and/or atheist -- you can be sure that those who do won't shut the fuck up about it.

    Ha, sadly I won't be able to do anything on Thursday or Friday so no Legendary status for me. Might be able to make it to Foeder for Thought on Friday night but doubt it. Hunahpu's Day and Hangover Day are always awesome so I will just be another commoner among legends. Which works for me as IPAs and sours are more what I go to events for but enjoy trying some stouts.

    Technically you can have a cycle ba day anytime you want just by visiting the brewery Anytime you want, given all the ba stuff that is usually on tap and sitting there.

    When I was in there 3 weeks ago, they didn't have 1 BA beer on tap. I've heard they've been having a bunch on but not the last few times I've been in there.

    I've had the same experience visiting Cycle. Been there quite a few times where there wasn't a single BA offering on tap. But maybe that's changed over the last year since I haven't been for that long.

    Really? Did you see the chalk board on the right where the BA beers are listed? Sometimes people don't see them over there. I have been in 3-4 times since last summer and they have had at least 6 BA Stouts/BWs on tap every time.

    Of course, this isn't my first rodeo. They had hundreds of bottles in that corner but no BA beers on tap.

    I would think they have a lot of beers for BA bay since they continue to produce more and more and it seems the demand / hype had died down substantially over the last year.

    Yeah the secondary market is dead for them besides remake of scoop. So people are more casual about showing up there.

    Probably not telling anything you don't know.

    Hopefully more will follow suit with greater production
