    Better than paying $100 per bottle... so probably worth it...

    Just as long as you don't buy 24 bottles, because that would be ridiculous.

    That is the limit being placed. I would probably buy the limit if I was there. I know tons of people in Indy who would love to have a bottle.. I would certainly spread the love.

    I really hate how craft beer has gotten. People selling spots on Facebook for beer. I'm sure this will be on there. It's absolutely ridiculous.

    Curious, did JO's take away the 6 bottle limit/day on other barrel aged beers?

    Can anyone confirm the 24 bottle limit? Seems like an odd time to allow such a high limit

    If you could make it to both locations, yes, it's 24. Thing is, the lines were so long at both, you were very unlikely to score that. It was always implied, even explicitly stated, 12 bottle limit at 2 locations.

    Looks like they'll be all out within an hour, and that's only because the line slowed down.

    *Secondhand social media information, doesn't seem like trolling at this point.

    Yes, paying Mulz is expensive. Glad you could be helpful.

    This is why I laugh when people ask, "How long do you think it'll last?" No one knows!

    Wife: "let's take a little vacation with the kids."

    Husband: "we can't! I have to save my vacation days in case Jackie O's brews another stout."

    I will admit to being dead wrong. Thought the price would keep some from purchasing full allotments. Wow!

    I certainly think it was worth the hype.

    I do not have kids yet, so I am not going to lie, I do factor Jackie O's releases into my vacation time. The Friday/Saturday releases, that is.

    Not to bash Jackie O's but this isn't the first time the hype train made a stop in Athens.

    Anniversary parties have been absolutely wild for years now, primarily for the limited sour bottle releases. The most sought after never survived to the next day.

    The amount that turned over in one day may be unprecedented here, but Jackie O's is definitely no stranger to the hype train. Hell even BB Oro and Black Maple Vanilla were pretty intense.

    Every release used to be bonkers back in the days when they were all in bombers.

    I missed out by around 15 people. Sour grapes, yada yada. I'll be back next year and be sure to make it there early.

    Brad- Pockets of Sunlight is delicious! I can't wait to taste OTBPs.

    Is there a guarantee they'll ever make this again? Seemed like a one-off to me but didn't hear yay or nay as to future plans. I'd dip into those IOUs you might have stocked up with any friends that attended just in case :wink:

    This kinda throws a monkeywrench in my plans for tomorrow. No motivation for my wife to go to Columbus now to see that band I wanted to see. I guess I save money, but I don't get to see Windhand. But I can stay home and watch game 7, Pens and Sens. But I don't get to see some rock. etc, etc,...

    Well it sucks that you were missing this and there are people on FB selling it for upwards of $100 already.

    I give permission to anyone if I'm ever caught going to releases only to resale at a 600% markup (or any markup really) to kick me in the nuts.

    Big shutout to the bartender who poured me a small sample of derivation. That seriously made my whole trip. I will say, despite derivation and appervation being available today...the best beer I had was dynamo fuzz.

    Lots of beer raffle pages on facebook when 15 or 26 spots will be solid and a winner will be choosen based on what number hits in the power or megaball. at some point the term razzle took over.

    I arrived around 1:20-1:30pm. I still got some solid bottles, so I'm not too salty. It's only beer.

    Yea. Some of the groups that are cost + shipping are fun because you can gamble a small amount of a spot for a chance at a great bottle but the other end of the spectrum also exists where people charge 50+$ for a chance too.

    You should still go, they will have a lot of amazing beer on draft and bottle. I'm not sure but Appervation might still be on draft.
