    Hey folks. Looking for someone who can help me. I received a bottle of Big Poppa in a trade and the question is how do you know which batch it is. I was supposed to receive b3. There appears to (possibly) be a Julian date at the top and I believe it reads 242 17. Which would be Oct 2017. This was after the b2 release but would they have bottles b3 that early? Thanks for any help with this question. Cheers guys and gals.

    Really simple way to tell:

    B2 had a yellow colored backdrop on the label.

    If your label is white, you have either B3 or B1.

    There is little to no chance they had B3 bottled all the way back in October so I don't think then numbers you found represent the bottled date.

    Also glad to see I wasn't the only one finding this batch so good. Wish I kept my B1s for a vertical.

    B1 and B3 were white label (B1 was a collab with abnormal, B3 collab with moksa and both labels should say so) B2 was yellow label

    Fairly easy to compare labels to pictures on Wakefield social media

    Hoping somebody can help me out here. Thinking about going to Wakefest this next year, and was wondering how easy/difficult it was to obtain the VIP tickets. Was it an online sale, lottery type sale? Pricing? And how fast they sold out? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    tough to get.

    50 are sold at brewery. this past year people waited just about 24hrs to get a chance.

    online sold out VERY quick and you really had to be lucky to get VIP online.

    GA was able to grab leftover bottles that didn't sell from VIP. Many saved the money and got near full bottle allotments

    Pro tip: skip VIP, buy GA, use the saved $ at all the other rad beer events going on that week.

    Anyone try the new cans yet? Will be in area and plan on scooping some of the lager. Curious on the stout but sounds similar to Hey Brother

    For me, Panther like a panther > hey brother. So much flavor for a lighter beer. The lager is decent but still grabbing a few packs as it’s great summer drinking. Boneyard, which is Slammin bones infused with terpenes, is amazing

    TTB, not FBI. It sounds like none of these breweries submitted their formulas for these beers is what the issue is, not TTB taking an active stance against terpene infused beer.

    Are the beers for the May 4th (Star Wars) celebrations just beers they've already produced with Star Wars names? Examples: Tatooine Sunrise Fruit Punch Sour aka Haterade?

    $22 for a 4 pack of haterade. Brutal

    Also, for SW day, you’re correct. Almost all of them are beers they’ve done previously but just rebranded

    That is what Orange Dreamsicle was priced at.

    It sold out in literally 40 minutes at noon on a random Thursday (I was there).

    It also had 1/10th the hype either Troll So Hard or Haterade have.

    I personally thought the cans might be $24.

    No limits that day. Luckily they are limiting to 3 4 packs of each per person.

    Funny story, Friend of mine opened a Unicorn Joose Crowler with the Lady head brewer at Jwake during DFPF release. She said "this isn't beer" and "i would never make something like this". LMAO

    You guys have been very helpful in the past with a question... hoping someone can help me again (I generally avoid social media so I’m a bit more limited in finding my answer and google has failed me).

    I believe Miami Madness has been bottled three times (15, 16 and 17)... maybe there was a limited run earlier but those are the three I’m seeing. Is there a way to tell the difference between each year? I saw a post on un tappd with three slightly different bottles but I didn’t know which was which... I’m looking for a 16 or 17 but not looking for 15 and was curious on labels.

    Thanks folks!

    that's '15, '16, and '17 in order.

    Friend of mine who make most the big JW releases. They were 1-4 in line for DFPF. That's when that happened.

    I’m not going to throw out peoples names on
    A beer message board. Not sure what you want here. If you were at the release you saw who the first 4 were. And that one of them poured the DFPF magnum through the line.

    You are worked up.. Dunno why.

    Read that answer about friend your friend again... You don't see even a little humor there?

    Not worked up in the least. Just answering your questions. No, I don’t see any humor there. Sarcasm fails often in these mediums though.
