Anyone know if a bottle release is gonna accompany the tasting?
From the FB event page
Imperial Stout aged in Bourbon barrels with Cassia, Ancho chilies, and Cacao Nibs.
Han Shot First:
Imperial Stout aged in Bourbon barrels with smoked Ghost Peppers, Vanilla, and Cacao Nibs.
Imperial Stout aged in Bourbon barrels with Mostra Coffee Kopi Luwak beans.
Our Berliner collaboration with Other Half Brewing Company.It is a Berliner brewed with a mix of citrus fruit.
Wow, never had any of these. Def gonna be there for Street Fruit and HSF
They are saying all 4 are being released on the 9th. More details to come on pricing/bottle limit.
I can't wait to see Miami again.
They updated the 4/9 event on FB today, limits still TBD.
Han Shot First $25
Moral Imperative $TBD
Fruit Street $20
do these releases typically sell out day of? i'm flying in on sunday, 4/10 and would love to get my hands on a couple bottles...
Depends on the bottle counts but my best guess is the stouts will be gone same day even within a hour like dfpf. Maybe a chance at fruit street because some people deciding to pass on it because they are already spending $75 plus on three bottles or the higher count may save it from selling out but I'm just being speculative.
What's the bottle count on these
The stouts will definitely not last until Sunday, the sours may as Bogart mentioned, and I assume the bottle count will be somewhere around 400 for each of the stouts as they were when they were sold at Wakestock.
Each stout,120 bottles.
Camp-out will be necessary
Wakestock bottle counts were around 150.
I wonder what time lines will start, I'd like to get some, but if lines start early and bottle counts are low I won't bother making the drive down there.
Line started forming for DFPF between 9-10am.
I don't understand why and how can anyone support this character.
Couldn't agree more
Many beer geeks value the .rar whalezbro and tradeability and posting Instagram whalez photos more so than caring about how certain breweries have treated customers and the craft beer community in the past. Breweries can get away with almost anything because many craft beer geeks don't care how they are treated as long as they get their whalez. That's why.
I just find it funny that someone with no moral imparative has the audacity to create a beer with that namesake.
Key board muscles, Troll So Hard, Haterade...... he has a knack for throwing up his middle finger at his supporters while naming his beers....
Though I sympathize with all the OGs who felt they were dealt a bad hand (some of them being personal friends of mine) and can honestly understand all the anger and frustration, I'm not into "boycotting" businesses based on other people's experiences. Sure, I see why some people feel like no one should ever drink one of his beers (ie AB InBev/Goose Island haters) and I'm sure if I had been personally "affected" my feelings would probably be different. The reality is that I'm not going to take some sort of moral stand when it comes to the consumption of beer. Again, if you feel like abstaining from supporting him that's fine. Additionally, being a local and having personal relationships with some of the people that work there who are not making decisions and are not at fault, it would be unfair for me to directly affect their ability to put food on the table
'Cause he makes good beers? I mean, I can only speak for myself here...but I'm willing to guess that's why most people are supporting him/the brewery
According to updated event page, Han Shot First, Desperado, and Moral Imperative are 1 pp (120 bottles for each) and Street Fruit is 4 pp (700 bottles)
DFPF release went extremely smoothly in my opinion, I'm hoping we see a similar event for this upcoming release.
they almost always have 1-3 upside down labels as a joke.. I actually try to get them.. I think it's cool to have them..
as far as the low fill goes.. that shit happens to everyone.. I got a low fill maple bacon .. shit happens .. you still have a beer you can trade for just about anything out there..
I am sure he said bottled.
JWB hasn't canned anything yet.. so I am not sure why this would be the first...
they also don't own a canning line .. so again.. not sure where "can" came from..
Ugh, why would I make that up? Hence why I said mobile canning line in my prior post back on page 1 (i.e. a company like Iron Heart). I realize they have never canned before but this came straight from the bartender's mouth
They have a pallet of cans and initially that was the plan. If they deviated from that then that's another story
Here's the IG post for reference:
We're making liquid art today during the madness of Art Basel with a killer brew day with our friends from @otherhalfnyc. Big shout out to Sam and Matt for coming down and brewing our collab Imperial Berliner Street Fruit. It will be hitting cans in a couple weeks so keep an eye out and follow our insta for further details. Cheers!
The plan likely deviated from cans when they did the math on price points and ounces. Assuming the cans would have been 4 packs of tallboys (a la Other Half), each 4 pack would have to be $50.39 to get the same revenue per ounce ($20 / 25.4 ounces = $.787 per ounce; x 64 ounces) as a 750ml bottle would. Or $12.59 per tallboy. Obviously no one would buy that, but they will almost certainly sell out of 750ml bottles. And they don't have to rent a canning line now. Can't really blame them for the switch.
Upside down labels and low fills for a brewery that is producing a couple hundred bottles vs fb who produced 10000 plus bottles of mbcp... That's the difference.
And the part about it trading for anything...
That's what's wrong with craft beer now.
Low-fills happen, regardless of bottle count or brewery. Not anything exclusive to JWB. I know that FB tries to filter out as many low-fills as possible to save for fests and store/bar events.
Now, does it suck that low-fills are sold? Absolutely. But no one's forcing you to buy that bottle. I'm sure the person that's 121st in line for a 120 bottle release won't mind buying a bottle that's an ounce short
On a related note, it seems that everyone puts their low-fills aside for trading. I guess it's understandable but still...
And you made my point again for me.
other breweries filter them out and most won't sell them. They are used as freebies.
I'm sure that number 121 won't mind buying that low fill, but again.... sigh... That's another thing wrong with craft beer now.
It's on both the consumer and seller.
I currently have 3 low-fills in my refrigerator, all from 3 different breweries and with varying batch sizes and I know for a fact that one of these beers was a low number around the same as DFPF. In fact, I had another bottle of a different beer from the same brewery that was also a low-fill, with bottle numbers similar to DFPF. Again, it's not exclusive to JWB.
Low-fills aren't the issue, though. It just seems like there's two camps with the JWB haters: those that have a legit issue due to the way the OG club was run and those that are just jumping on the bandwagon because...I dunno, everyone else is doing it? They keep missing out on bottles? Who knows? But honestly, I think it's time to put the big boy pants on, get over what happened with the OG and move on with life. From what I've read, everyone in the club received what they were entitled to, just not the bottles they wanted? I mean, I bought sea monkeys when I was 10 expecting magical, fantasical aqua-pets and what I got instead was krill shrimp that died after 3 days. Did I show up at Toys R Us every other week to talk shit? Nah, I got over it and never bought another sea monkey kit ever again.
Bottom line is it gets aggravating for those of us trying to get/post legit info about releases and we have to wade through pages of people complaining about how Wakefield ruined their lives or whatever. And I'm sure these people will be in line waiting for bottles on the 9th.
I don't have any issue with Wakefield or the brewery. I was an OG and dealt with the bullshit and I'm over it...
What I have an issue with is the way craft beer is going and the people that defend the utter stupidity several breweries are putting their customers though so they can get bottles that "trade for anything" or treat their customers like shit because they want good beer. Beer can be as great, but if I get treated like shit or have to go through too much of a hassle, I won't buy it.
And if you don't like beer nerds whining about shit, your on the wrong fucking site.
To get this thread back on track; I've never actually been to JWB, only enjoyed their beers at different events. I'm thinking about driving down from Boca next weekend. Any tips for how early to arrive or where to park? I'm expecting the worst since its Miami.
I can't tell if they're still going ahead with cans or not?
I hope cans, not just because of the price.
Best line in 2016 for me (thanks @gnartothecore ).

There's abundant street parking on 23rd and 24th, specially early in the morning. Keep in mind it's metered @ $1.50 per hour. Make it easy for yourself, download the PayByPhone app and use it. There's also some parking lots in the area that charge a flat rate or $1 per hour so it's up to you. I hang out in the area a bunch and have gotten away without paying a shitload of times, but I've also gotten multiple $18 tickets so I always suggest other people to pay. As far as how early you should be down here for the release, well the answer it's all up to you. If this is anything like DFPF release, and it will likely be so given low bottle counts, I would leave Boca no later than 8. Oh and bring a camping chair lol
wow what a hilarious joke!!!
when are people gonna stop defending this douche
