    I'll be there! I've already put out a call to O'Betty's about a bottle share for Friday, March 1st @ 9pm. Let me know if you're interested so I can give them an idea of how many people to expect.

    The exciting part is the experience. Don't be a stick in the mud, join us for the bottle share and drink a bunch of great beer on tap!

    I've lived here in Athens since July and haven't even caught whiff of a Nano. I second that motion.

    I was a bit bummed to have missed out on the anniversary party, hopefully we can make a day of this release.

    I'm looking to set up some in person trades at Jackie O's on 3/2. I'd like to try to keep it close to $4$. BM if you have any interest. Cheers!

    One of his best, most certainly. I think only Dynamo Hum was better, fresh or otherwise.

    I was constantly reminded of Dynamo while drinking OGP. But I'd take OGP over Dynamo...barely (and would make that trade if anyone wanted to).

    I didn't get that same reminder. Honestly, OGP reminded me of the 6th Anniversary Blend, but with about 25% of the sourness. I want to see Dynamo again, it's soooo damned good.

    I gotta check that I can get free from work, but I'm planning on making this. That December Anniversary party made me a Jackie O's disciple for life. And always up for another epic tasting.

    I have some personal reasons why I probably can't go, but I'd be wary anyways concerning the announcement of why they're doing the sale in the first place. It sounds like the typical release plethora of tap options will be greatly diminished this time around. I'm sure the bottle share and event will be great regardless, but if your main reason is to try 40 JO's beers, I'd be hesitant until a taplist is announced.

    Cool to see Berliner in a bottle though, when that beer is on it's one of Brad's best imo.

    That Cuvée sounds fantastic! If anyone doesn't want one and is going let me know and I can work something out.

    Athens has two Pizza Huts - hard to beat. Go to this release and grab a CC7 for me.
    Hoping to track down one or two CC7 afterwards from all you lucky folks that make it.

    Wish I had the money for this one, but looks like it just isn't in the cards. Hope they get the money they need, I'm excited about the cans!

    Additional news (good and bad, from http://www.ohio.com/blogs/the-beer-...o-s-starts-production-in-new-brewery-1.374452):

    The taproom at the new brewery is expected to have a soft opening in March with four beers on draft. An official grand opening will likely be sometime in April with an additional four beers available.

    Some other positive news — again, push that bad news further down — is that Jackie O’s will have another bottle release event on March 2. There will be three beers available: Oil of Aphrodite, Berliner Weisse and a new Cellar Cuvee. Why only three? Read on.

    And now for the crappy news. The boiler at the brewpub failed and there’s been no new beer made there in six weeks. The number of beers on draft is slowly dwindling and now stands at eight. That’s mighty painful for a brewpub that prides itself on turning out one unusual, tasty beer after another.

    “For seven months or so, we were holding at 20 different beers on draft and we were hitting this great stride,” Clark said. “We got blind-sided and our boiler took a turn for the worse. Now everything is falling off.”
    He hopes to fire up a new boiler in three weeks or so. The brewing system has been shut down for lengthy periods before in 2007 and 2011 because of mechanical issues.

    Clark is warning folks who show up for the bottle release event that the Jackie O’s-made draft selection won’t be as substantial as in the past. For awhile at least, Jackie O’s will resemble a regular brewpub — picture an amber, India pale ale, etc. — with the new production brewery providing the beer.

    “Once we get all the engines going, it should be pretty awesome,” Clark said about the brewpub and the production brewery. “It’s all going to work out but we need to be patient.”

    Hopefully there are at least some cool kegs from the cellar that can be tapped for the release. :(

    Maybe I'm an optimist, but I don't think Brad will disappoint.

    Not as much on tap Friday night...all the more reason to join the bottle share at O'Betty's! Glad to hear that things are starting to move along.

    The bottles down in the cellar are pretty damn exciting! Anyone who comes is in for a treat.

    I'm there regardless. I'ma put some money back for the May/June one. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. Chunga and Dynamo= happy me and happy wife.

    Brad, this is a good one, the post on the website mentioned Evelyn, which I remember as a STAFF beer, is it still only a STAFF beer, or is it a new release for everyone this time around?

    If Evelyn is actually hitting a public tap I might try to rearrange some stuff to get some.

    Edit: Derp, I guess that's slated for the next release.
