    They probably would not gather as much dust if ya know they did what every other Brewery in the World does and sell Half Pours of their Damn Stouts..Can't tell ya how many times I would have tried or sampled a few more if they actually did

    They have had be beers on tap for almost 2 months. They have had the road trip series on at minimum since December 12 and 3 of the 5 are still on.

    Let's see if we can fill a full page with this repetitiveness. OMG! They've had BA taps on for months!

    Yea, I stand corrected. :grimacing: Thanks for all the concerns everyone! I guess I'll need to go up to Cycle sometime soon to have several pours.

    Good luck! Several pours will mean $36-40, dealing with the asshole bartenders for a couple hours, and being barely able to walk out, since you can still only get full glasses of BA beers.

    I hate to harp on it, but the disconnect between my love for their beer, well organized events, customer service at the top of the organization, etc, and the absolutely horrific taproom experience is just something I've never seen before.

    Hire nice people who actually know something about the beer and want to be there and allow for half pours of your BA beers... that's not a lot to ask.

    That has always been my issue with Cycle and why I didn't feel bad for them when they had their mishap last year during TBBW. Karma!

    Is it odd that all of their bottles seemingly disappeared from the website overnight?

    Was going to drive to Tampa from our spot in Naples, but would have liked to grab at least a couple bottles for the Superb Owl.

    My experiences at Cycle have all been fine, and a few have been outstanding. Entirely possible I'm easy to please though because I can't think of a taproom in the area I've had an actual bad experience. Wait, there was a time at Calusa.

    Cycle’s taproom is fine. They just have dumb stances of not letting you sample or get a half pour of beer that costs a buck or more per ounce so it’s annoying. And the bar tenders aren’t gonna be your new best friend, but they’ve never been rude that I’ve seen besides perceived rudeness when they won’t let people sample a BA beer before buying.

    Does seem weird that the bottles have disappeared from the website. I was looking at them last night and considering ordering a few since my wife is due this week and I don’t have time to get down there. Went to pull the trigger today and all have vanished.

    I wonder the reason. Are they ditching the online bottle sale option already?

    I'm paraphrasing here, but "need to hold some merch back for a 'big event'".

    speculation, BA Day?

    Seems a bit ridiculous to hold bottles that old for an event in March. Especially since all the labels have the “drink fresh” phrase printed on them. I guess I’m assuming that they will do bottles for TBBW like they’ve always done as well.

    From what I was told from people that work at cycle is they will be releasing all the bottles that week on Sunday so they don’t have to do the one per day thing.

    Well that kinda sucks. Then again, less money I'd be spending. So ultimately a good thing.

    Well kinda. I would've just visited the day before I leave at the least. But I leave Sunday morning, so no bueno if I really wanted some bottles.

    He’s from out of town. He flys out Sunday the 10th. He was assuming the Sunday mentioned was the 10th so he can’t make it to Cycle before his flight. He was planning on going Saturday the 9th to grab whatever was leftover from the week day releases before he left town.

    It makes a lot more sense for the Sunday to be Sunday, March 3: the beginning (officially the second day) of TBBW vs. March 10 (the end of TBBW).

    If you're reading this (which I doubt you are)... Please put the previously available bottles back online, thanks Cycle.

    No employee in that taproom looks like they enjoy being there. I would not be surprised if Cycle closes the tap room and goes into Distro and pop ups for BA bottle sales.

    Or just work harder at hiring and/or adjusting the company culture. I love their beers, but it seems like they need to step it up as a company and brand, including their social media presence or lack thereof.

    That's been a pretty strong rumor for a while that they are going to close The Tap Room on Central and just do something out of the Warehouse on 5 Avenue South..the way all the old buildings on Central are being bought up for millions and torn down for new projects this would not surprise me at all

    I really don't get the feeling that they like big public events or even being busy in the taproom. They only seem to like to make beer and have a mellow atmosphere, and TBBW is all kinds of opposite of all that.

    Putting it into that perspective, everything makes a lot more sense. Not saying I'm right, just the vibe I get.

    This seems to be true, but not only is TBBW the opposite of that... but so is all of craft beer culture. That doesn't bode well.

    Does anyone know what the caps looked like on the first bottling of Hunahpu - 2010 Vintage? I'm thinking it was a plain gold cap and the later years had a gold cap with the CCB logo. Is this correct?
