    Maybe some Derivation on draft as well? :wink: For science...? :stuck_out_tongue:

    That's because it's got that Side Project name / hype train attached to it.

    BA Oro was 550 cases I think with a 12 per person limit and that lasted for a couple weeks, even with a bottle release the same weekend. If I'm wrong on that count, please correct me. It will be interesting to see how long this lasts. I'm just hoping to get a taste. Anything else is gravy.

    No one is sleeping on this release, I know folks planning to drive from St Louis and Chicago for this. I wouldn't wait until the weekend if I didn't want to get shut out. Also just so all of you out of towners know there's construction on Stimson so they're releasing this down at their farm in Shade. Don't even bother trying to get to the taproom or uptown, too much construction. :wink:

    I'm assuming appervation will see no distro and the only avenue for it will be release day or a day or 2 after?

    @beace Will this be run just through the taproom as usual or lining up inside in the back like January? I also thought after the January release having bottle sales in the extended part of the taproom was great, made getting in the door and getting bottles or draft a lot easier. Or could do Side Project style sales from the loading door, should be nice enough out.

    We will be in full production mode so going through the brewery is not an option. We will do our best to handle the crowd in a controlled, efficient, and calm manner.

    Loving Chiron's Flame right now. This is the new Lanthrone / Noble Sorrel. Amazing side release beers that people slept on it for not being stouts.

    I'm always surprised at the people that skip Jackie O's barrel-aged beers that aren't Stouts! EVERYTHING they barrel age (minus Rum BA Oil, but let's not talk about that) is awesome. Noble Sorrel is still an all-time favorite!

    I used to drink a lot of Belgian styles and don't as much anymore, but Skipping Stone is outstanding.

    I am a big fan of belgian styles and especially trappists, but I have not been on board with a lot of the BA belgians, and so I ended up avoiding skipping stones due to the price. I hate dropping $12+ on a beer that will literally be hit or miss. I like JO, but I hate the price tag :slight_frown::slight_frown::slight_frown::flushed::flushed::flushed:

    If you love belgians, this one is worth dropping the money on. Even if you're on the fence about BA. Super sleeper beer.

    is the Stimson exit coming from 50 West what's under construction? Should one get off on State street and come in that way?

    So, my wife and I are planning to make the 3.5 hour drive down to Athens next Thursday, to pick up a couple of those Appervations, then haul ass to Columbus to see the Windhand/Satan's Satyrs show at the Ace of Cups. My question is how is Jackie O's involved in that show? The flyer states "Jackie O's Brewery and Starwood Presents...." What are you guys specifically doing to present that show? Special beers on tap? Free admission if wearing Jackie O's shirt? Just curious, doesn't matter really. My wife was very much opposed to going to see that band, until she saw the release of Appervation, then she completely changed her attitude. I'm stoked, she's gonna hate it.

    I can't say for certain, but I doubt there would be distro. It just depends how long it lasts at the brewery. Vanilla maple was the quickest at barely 3 days (might as well be 2) and about 250 cases. Add the collaboration aspect and raised limits to 12 and it might be gone within same amount of time. The raised cost might help it stick around a bit longer. I don't know. Take it for what it's worth. Good luck!

    There will be a selection Jackie O's on draft, no special beers just for the show. We like to cross promote/"sponsor" stoner metal shows.

    I work until 330 on release day and it's a 3 hour drive after that. But from the sounds of it there's very, very little chance of it selling out the first day or two, right?

    Based on past releases you'd be safe, throwing the side project wild card into the mix this time who knows.

    My wife and I are thinking of driving in from Saskatchewan. My question is how many people are planning on buying 12 bottles? Is Jackie O's open to breastfeeding our dogs (we're bringing 8 of them)? Will these bottles last until 3:52 on Friday? Is there anything special available to people from another country?

    I just wanna make sure we have a good time and all my trade partners are happy.

    My absolute favorite posts ever are when people ask (either on here or FB), "Will this last until (insert day)?" Jackie O's makes amazing beer, but to my knowledge, they cannot predict the future.

    Marty we have to go back. It's your parents. They got to Jackie O's at 3 p.m. and all the bottles were gone.

    In my experience, breweries tend to say "we really don't know" when I have called and asked for a "window" or "gauge" of any kind. I've even asked for something as broad as lasting the rest of the day vs. not. They hate to answer these questions. That's why I asked the community their thoughts based on previous releases, taking into account all the known factors now and from previous releases.

    I get that these questions suck, and I get that specific questions can get inevitably stupid. Still.

    I've always had REALLY awesome service at the Jackie O's Taproom. I only live about 45-50 minutes from the brewery and I've called before just to make sure a beer was still there before I made the trek (given, I'm not asking them if they will have X amount left at some undetermined date), and they always told me if they did and usually how many cases are left.

    Yea, I've always had great luck with that too. -Just no one seems to like to answer the "Any idea how long it will last" question. Totally get where you are coming from, though.

    All I was asking for was a few people's personal opinions on how long it may last. If I'm making a 7hr round trip after work its easier to justify if I get some "probably still be lots" opinions and likewise I'd probably sit it out if I got a few "might be close" opinions.

    It's a lose-lose situation for the brewery to answer that, though. I do not see how, in the current craft beer climate, any brewery can predict when something will run out. If they tell you it will likely be gone and you don't go and it lasts, then you'll be mad. If they tell you they should have it and you do go and it's gone, then you'll be mad. To be clear, I am not saying that you specifically will be mad. I am just saying that plenty of people get super mad about beer-related things that are well outside of a brewery's control nowadays.

    Calling the taproom for an answer of how much they have left is a different discussion. That has a concrete answer. The answer of how long something will last is not concrete.

    Didn't they both just say they would be asking the community, not the brewery?

    I was further elaborating on my point above regarding how it is comical to me when people ask the brewery. Whether it's the brewery or the community, no one knows the answer anyway.

    We've had semi-live update reports from attendees in the past saying they could visually see X number of cases, at least behind the counter, or directly asking the cashiers how things are looking so far.

    There's no getting away from these questions, we see them about 1/100th as often as people in FL and MA, but when this actually hits it's likely going to be attendees who are the primary source of information for most folks here minute by minute, accuracy be damned.

    Any of the JO locations dog friendly? Was thinking of driving down for the release Weds but I would like to bring my girlfriend and the dogs along so we can make an overnight stop a Hocking afterwards. Just depends on what I can do with them while making our Athens pit stop.
