    The 4th annual release of Hunahpu's Imperial Stout is scheduled for Saturday, March 9th, 2013.

    Limit 2 bottle per person, so drag along a friend who doesn't know anything about craft beer and snatch his 2 allocations. I'm flying all the way from Chicago for this, anyone else down for a trip?

    Do online liquor stores sell this? And when do the barrel aged versions come out.

    Who says there will be a two bottle limit this year? I have yet to see that.

    How much do bottles usually cost?

    I've made the four hour drive the last two years. I moved and will be flying down if at all possible. To answer the questions, in the past the beer has been available only at the brewery on the day of release (though it did last until the next morning in 2011). The way they've done it the last two years is you pick up a wristband that gets you your allotment. Two bottles in 2012, four in 2011. If there's any left after, then they sell it first come, first serve. I didn't stick around this year, but got four extras in 2011. Bottles were $20 the last two years.

    I'm hoping they brewed extra this year after last year's release was so popular. But even if they don't, it's a fun time and there is generally lots of interesting stuff to try. Even if you don't line up for the whale guest taps, they usually pull a lot of neat stuff from previous events out of their vault. In short, it's a good time.

    I don't think so. I've watched the Luekens Big Town Liquors site(Florida) and it's never been listed.

    This thread is speculation central... other than the date.

    Yea. the bottle limit HAS NOT been announced. In fact, as redblacks stated, the only info released has been the date.

    Yeah 2 limit was just my speculation based in previous years.

    My guess is that they haven't even BREWED next year's batch yet, let along have an idea of how many bottles they will end up with.

    They might have. Depends on how long they age it. Last year's batch was bottled in January. So, if it sits for three months, they'd be starting that around now. This, though, is total and complete speculation, whereas my previous post was a simple description of my experience the last two years.

    Last year, a bunch of us were able to get up to a case each after the initial allotment was given out to those with wrist bands. Needless to say, no idea if this year will be the same.

    bryanole27 Aspirant (227) Jun 24, 2011 North Carolina

    So based on the past: 2011: 4, 2012: 3, 2013: 2...meaning 2014: 1, 2015: 0?

    Please don't speculate. All you are going to do is panic people.

    I don't know you, you don't know me. Lets get in a car together and drive to Florida...I'm being serious. We would definitely know each other by the time we got back with a trunk full of CCB goodies, and a belly full of Peg's Cantina BA goodness...

    Wouldn't it be 2010: 6, 2011: 4, 2012: 2, so that would mean the next release would be zero? :wink:

    The event last year was a hell of a time. Got there around 5:30 am and didn't leave until about midnight. Although I don't live in Florida anymore I will be making the pilgrimage from Louisville Kentucky. Woudnt miss it for the world. Also hopping pegs does an event the night before like they did last year. A yard bird burrito with a whiskey barrel aged rare dos is a heavenly combination

    I'm glad the brewery is within walking distance from the airport. No need to rent a car.

    In the past they have brewed it in December. They have also increased their brew house recently so there may be a bigger batch made this year. Also the bottles have been $20 in the past.

    Ahh, good to know. I'm hoping they used some of that expanded space to brew more this year. I haven't seen it yet, but my wife took the tour right after it opened and said it was pretty big.
