Why wouldn't beer at 15% last 8 yrs?
Buy it and trade it to me
Really people? 8 years ago founders knew that they were going to expand by 800% so they brewed a beer able to reach all the markets they are in now? Morons
They must have a really good business plan.
No need to be so pejorative in your language.
If the 8 years in a barrel had any truth to it, it would only make sense to me if it was part of a blending of old and new barleywines for a final product. That's the only way I could see that being true. The 8 year old component would have to be a small percentage. Wasn't there a 5 year old component for one of the FW blends?
I heard evertually the beer stops soaking up the barrel and a tar residue forms at the bottom...
Even if it was true (put my odds on a negatory), like ajfa531 said, it would probably be a blend in order to make the probable (guessing) 15,000 bottles. Do you even think blending would affect the flavor that much, considering they wouldn't have been able to age that much of it?
EDIT: Everybody loves a good conspiracy theory.
I have this beer right now, afraid to drink because I think it'll be valuable...3mos. before it's released...any interest?
How do you have?
Also, I heard it was in barrels for 80 years. HYPE TRAIN BABY, CHOO CHOO!!!
Something about watching the world burn.
Rumor is that the barrels they used were made from reclaimed wood from Noah's Ark.
well that's only partially true.
the wood used to create the barrels was first soaked in black tuesday that had been aging in barrels that previously held chocolate rain and then transported via rocket launch into the outer atmosphere of the earth (where the wood was then placed into pappy barrels) before returning to earth via reentry into a remote diamond mine on the desolated coast of Namibia where the wood was allowed to dry amongst a colony of seals. those are just the basic details as I understand there was a lot more that went into the beer and I don't want to ramble on. cheers.
I believed you until the colony of seals part. That is just ridiculous.
Did you add it to your renter/homeowner's insurance policy as a valuable item. With value like it's going to have your current policy isn't going to cut it.
Have they announced the date of the Anniversary Party?
I would assume, it's around their anniversary.
According to that, it is Saturday, November 17th.
Quoted for truth.
Founders parking lot the night of the 16th (with barrel of BCBS)...wake up, stand in line, get bottles, drink a few beers, get into car, have Mike drive to Chicago for the evening session of FoBAB...who's with us!?
Of Course it would be the same day as the FoBAB in Chicago
You may have just made my weekend plans for me!
How did I read over that post? Holy crap!
I know...had original plans to ditch the Anny party and join my Chicago crew at FoBAB at the afternoon session...but may have to rethink things. Thanks alot Marc!
Almost true - its actually the wood from the cross and that individual did create the beer from water!
Story of your life.
The "get into car" and "drive to chicago" part is genius, especially since it follows " barrel of BCBS" and "few beers".
LOL, well played.
Isn't this suppost to be a ticketed only event ? If you get a ticket you really wouldn't have to wait in line that long.
Waiting outside the brewery is a event in itself. Just like at other beer releases/ parties.. Ahh.. makes me think back to CBS and the nice bottle share we had going at the front of the line. Then the crazy hobo in his wheelchair... who came up and somehow managed to grab a DL from among the bottles and leave.. lolz
No official word yet, but it will probably be a ticketed event.
Well, Mike doesn't drink. I guess sometimes in my head I assume everyone knows that, but that is obviously not the case. So in some instances, I make sure to take full advantage...this being one. DD from Founders to Fobab, then about 10 free extra tokens because he can only had 3 samples of Gilgamesh then he wanders around taking hip shots of that girl with the amazing ass in the black spandex pants (I know I'm not the only one who remembers that thing!?)
Anniversary Party is on my 29th birthday. You can bet your ass I'm going to be there celebrating in style.
The anniversary party is not the same as the release of bolt cutter bottles. Bolt Cutter will be on tap at the party, but no bottles will be sold.
If this is the case, I wonder if Founders will even bother doing bottle releases on site anymore.
There wasn't anything on their website/blog. That's why I asked. Can you reference a Facebook post or something? This wouldn't surprise me, but it's always good to have a source of information other than the stereotypically vague "my buddy who works there" answer.
Breakfast Stout Breakfast appears to be on 11/10, with an anniversary party the week after? 2 Ticketed events a week apart, guess I've got to pick which one i'm going to attend this year.
Yep, I was driving, sorry for the vagueness.. just couldn't help replying, since this is something I was confused on a couple of months ago, and seems to still have a lot of people confused. Here is from Facebook, and I'm the "Andy" they are replying to. You can look it up on their facebook post from July 20th to see for yourself.
Founders Brewing Co. (Official) Justin: It's cool, we've been keeping it quiet. There's a story behind this beer that we'll be telling shortly.
All: This beer is expected to be available in late fall, likely November. As Andy said, we'll be releasing it at our taproom through a ticketed release system, but this will be separate from the anniversary party we'll be throwing, where we'll have Bolt Cutter on tap. We expect to also send this beer out to our markets (where the ABV is not an issue) in limited quantities, similar to our other Backstage Series beers.
