    Anyone in line for the Harbinger bottle release? Nothing like a release at 2 PM on a Wednesday in the middle of Miami!

    Any shot this lasts until next week? iirc, Master Blaster was available in the taproom for a bit.

    I'll be in Miami at the end of next week and am just trying to gauge if I should bring some AGE and other NYC brews for an IP trade. TIA.

    About 40ish people in line. It's raining and it's Art Basel week which made traffic a shit-show. Plenty of time left to get here but since there's only 555 bottles there is a very slim chance any are left till next week.

    I got to JWB around 2:20 and there were about 100 bottles gone already. I doubt this will last through the week

    Is this the same beer released earlier in the year (and available in growlers?)

    Went with the wifey on a late lunch around 2:45 and was number 125. Traffic sucked and parking was worst but it was worth it. J Wakefield is a standup dude and so was the guy responsible for doing the artwork on the bottles cool dudes. Harbinger was freaking delicious which will be available at the MBCP fest this year on limited tap.

    Yes, but these bottles have limited edition artwork. In all seriousness, I haven't had this batch but the last one was outstanding.

    Is this an OG bottle? I didn't get an email or anything?

    You have to be fucking joking right? If not, I don't think you know what a standup dude is because he is the exact opposite of a standup dude. Search for JWB on this forum if you think he is a standup dude and see how he has treated the folks who funded his brewery.

    Any word when Street Fruit is to be released? Rumor from Other Half NYC thread is that collab is to be canned and sold in Florida only (or at least first)

    That's what the bartender said when I inquired about Street Fruit since the IG post indicated that it was being canned. It wasn't Matt or David and I've never spoken to this guy before. He said they were going to utilize a mobile canner.

    Update email today for OG's.

    Your next bottle is ready for pickup starting today. Either you or your proxy can come in and pickup your 1 allotted bottle of It's a Trappe - Bourbon barrel aged Quad. The next bottle release will be in two weeks, there may be a second bottle released that week as well. After that final bottle everyone will have two weeks to pickup all of their bottles.

    Funny to me the original crowdbrewed listing was all friendly about them holding bottles with no real time limit, but after it taking them over two years to get the bottles out we only have two weeks to pick them up.
    • *All bottles must be picked up from the taproom. Proxies can be used. We will hold your bottles until you or a proxy can pick them up.
    I'm ISO a trustee, BM if you willing to assist.

    Can't believe how awful the Wakefield thing has become. Took 10 grand + from folks, limited minimal updates for almost 2 years. Then shitty barely capped bottles start dropping with barely so much as a "whoops" from Wakefield. Then this bullshit.

    I for one will be actively avoiding purchasing a single drop of liquid from this guy for the rest of my life.
    Such a shame cause it often tastes so good... But no tasty beer is worth the crappy "business" practices and poor treatment of good paying customers/supporters.

    $300 per donor x 290 donors = $87,000.

    His cost for what was promised, if we're being extremely generous, was $15 a bottle, so $90 per member or $27,000 total.

    We literally GAVE him SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS and gave him an interest-free loan of 27k by paying for product up-front.

    I don't know about y'all, but I would be extremely thankful if someone gave me that to start a business.

    Has it been officially announced the club is ending?

    I emailed Wakefield and he said he was still considering OG Club Round 2.

    No but he hasn't officially announced anything really since opening. I noticed his 1 year anniversary party is coming up and not so much as a casual mention has gone out to his OG members.

    I sincerely hope that no one renews and people don't continue to throw money at him...

    Really, he should have hired a person to give full attention and run OG things and turn it into a Bruery Reserve Society like club with good communication, etc. He could have made a mint cranking out and selling bottles. Maybe he's not that all interested in money? (half joking/half serious).

    "East Bound and Down will be packaged in 750ml bottles and will “probably” be released “early next year” in Miami..."

    Knowing Wakefield, this keeps getting delayed just long enough for HBO to file lawsuit for copyright infringement, causing it never to be released unless we fund a kickstarter to help pay for his lawyer.
