    Mortalis is local, so I know their beers are amazeballs. Once people get a taste, I think you’ll enjoy them. Their BA stouts are a favorite of mine, though an early bird line crawl is always in order.

    When do I get my “Society” banner and perks? I want to look super sweet to my BA buds!

    See the FAQ in the first post of this thread.

    I basically need to get all of the orders from Half Time, load them, adjust my Half Time order to BA account sync script, and then send instructions to everyone. I plan on applying it upon syncing.

    @Todd - somewhat unrelated, but how do we see when our Society membership ends? I'm trying to figure out the extension with the current box purchase.

    My wife got it for me last year as a gift and, even though I am primarily a dark beer drinker, I loved it and I just found out yesterday she bought it again. I can't wait!!! And I can't wait for the beer reveals!!!

    Past boxes have contained mostly 16oz cans, with some 12oz cans and bottles too. Lager had a 500mL bottle.

    pretty much lost me after basically [I was tracking through "I"] but that's ok, I'm really just in it for the beer. Living right now in a country where all consumption of alcohol is illegal so this is the only alcohol I have bought in 6 weeks! Better be good, but then it's a low bar. Looking forward to trying it when I get back in March.

    To clarify; there is no official online event for this correct?
    Trying to plan getting together with some people to try these beers and I wanted to see if there were any dates that might coincide with even a few things like an on-line video or somesuch.

    Correct. As per the FAQ, "While there will be online components, this isn't a virtual event. Enjoy the box of beers at your leisure!" As for other forms of online content and unofficial stuff, more to follow...

    @Todd When do you plan to make a first official reveal of a confirmed beer in the lineup?

    You should tease it out by releasing one name a week

    I believe that was a rye barrel from Lexington. And, after tasting and discussing, we've also decided to got a bit hybrid with the ingredients.

    Brewing at Brewjeria next week. I'll drop more updates then!

    I'm aiming for when 6 of the 12 beers are locked in. We're very close, but most of the beers are still being selected or brewed.

    Agreed. It's looking pretty damn solid with 5.5 more beers to go!
    Singlecut is sending a Fruited IPA. Maybe Modist will do another Pastry Lager? :thinking_face:
    I wouldn't mind a Barleywine.
