***Smiles sipping my Expedition Stout*** Cracked bottles and mold you say?
there are two different abvs 14 and 13 one was bottled in sept 14 the other oct 13
Three different this year
From the reports of my friends in MA who went hunting today - it sounds like the majority of the MA bcbs outside of Boston all had their cases recalled due to "packaging issues".
No issues with any of my bottles, we got the 13.8 abv here in NC, got trashed drinking two on tap though.
man that sucks, all I got today were 6 of these untainted bottles after 1minute of waiting. Is glass the new variant this year?
Glad that AB is keeping up with Goose Island quality traditions.
Best Buy should start selling beer, then they can sell crappy TVs and moldy beer simultaneously on Black Friday.
I totally called this, AB Inbev ruining Goose Island to piss you guys off, so they can use the room taken up by the bourbon barrels to install new fermenters to make more 312 to sell to the non-BA peoples.
I bought 2 4 packs from 2 different stores ... One set was 13.8% and the other 14.4%.. I wondered the same.
I have both ... didnt notice anything though
law doesnt require abv on the label, but if it is, it is allowed to have a .5% leeway higher or lower than stated. 14.4% could mean 14.9% or 13.9%, but if one batch is measured at 13.8%, new labels must be submitted.
Yeah, where are the pics? I need to see what this screw-up looks like, for science.
Friend that works in distro confirmed. Lots of bottles sent back and they haven't been given any info on future shipments.
He was trying to be informative as well, as he usually is. Your information was wrong, and he was merely correcting you. You can learn a lot on this forum, and you should be grateful for the knowledge that exists within it.
I picked up a four pack of BCBS and a bottle of Vanilla Rye, and I didn't look closely at the necks of the bottle to notice anything. I will check when I get home.
mine are dated 8/28. no mold or anything. 13.8% abv. they didn't have any variants so I'm talking about the regular one only.
I got 8 bottles of BCBS. One 4 pack looked like this. The other 4 were from two different cases, but no mold. ABV on these 14.4%.
Mold and no mold to compare, both 2014 14.4% from two different cases.
Pretty sure this is just shitty storage conditions, the beer should taste fine. Haven't cleaned them off yet because I figured someone else would have noticed this.
Hate to be a trolly bitch here, but you were off by 1/5th of a percent.
I have one bottle and the neck is a little sticky like maybe it was partially cleaned off. The abv is 13.8%. I have seen mold before on the neck of one of the Yeti variants, underneath the foil, but it drank fine so no foul.
It's most likely the exteriors not being fully cleaned after bottling, and the sugars left after the alcohol evaporates are perfect for mould growth if there's any moisture in the air.
The bottle is a health hazard for sure, but if you clean it off thoroughly—and if the cap seal is fine—the beer should be OK.
edit: do check the cap when you open it, though. I ran into a pack of Matilda a year or so ago with faulty seals, and the beer was disgusting.
its Brett Porters limited release of a Brett stout porter
Hey guys check it this totally unrelated and completely inferior and inequivalent stout I picked up today that's not suffering from this issue that's only affecting BCBS due some minor leakage somewhere, not a humblebrag or anything brah!
Basically what @cookiequiz said. The mold is most likely due to a bottle busting and leaking down into other cases on the pallet. I've worked for a distributor for several years and that was one of the most common issues we see with damaged beer. It happens all the time, and the beer is perfectly fine to drink.
Wipe the exterior off with a warm cloth and clean the mouth when you open the bottle. The contents inside should be perfect.
And people complain about KBS? At least I can drink it. Just kidding. I'm just jealous because I live in Ohio and can't get BCBS at all.
In other words, don't talk back to @jesskidden ! It won't end well for you
Seriously though, he can be quite the devil's advocate, nitpicky about details and determined to prove others wrong but, when it comes to the laws, objective information and history of beer, he's like a frickin human Wikipedia only more reliable. He's like the dude at the party where, when someone states what they claim to be fact, he goes "Actually..." And proceeds to contradict them. Except he's always right somehow. It can be annoying, but he means well and is usually quite respectful.
Wow that's some nasty looking stuff
No it was down the road @ 4 seasons
Checked my bcbs and the bottles look good, they are 13.8%. One of my Bcbbw looks to have an extremely small deformity in the neck but honestly would have never seen it if I hadn't inspected very closely. Vanilla and bcbcs looks fine as well.
I'm in western mass .. Went to 3 stores before I found a four pk of reg bcbs.. All the strokes told me that a second shipment was coming and only 2 stores recorded a case of vanilla because of a carbonation defect leading to mold in some bottles.. I was told 8 pallets shipped to western Ma were returned?? Sad to hear.. Happy bcbs hunting everyone!!
Maybe its BCBS Baudoinia going undercover!
So just send all defective or suspicious bottles to me and I guess I can probably take a look at them for you.
definite quality control has went down I just notice my bottles are not filled near as high as past years
About half of my bottles are filled to my finger looks like about 10oz fills
This is all so crappy to read. And here in california everyone got half as much bcbs due to cutting the allocation in half.
And then I go on the haul forums and people are posting pictures of cases they picked up. Wtf
Saw two cases at two different stores with what appeared to be mold. Id say its time for us to send messages to them to let them know that the quality control took a dive. And that we are noticing.
I'd say my two bottles were slightly under-filled but fine other than that. (Central Coast of CA)
All good in CA. Rancho Mirage TW.
BCBS = Bourbon County Biodegradation Stout
