They're on sale now! Who wants to gopickitupformebro and help out a fellow Michigander?
Just left JP after picking up my share. Sales are at the Ann Arbor Brew Pub, upstairs. I counted 26 cases next to the bar, which from what I was told is all they have left. Seemed to me like theyre going pretty fast, so Im not sure about the whole being around until later in the week. I would call before making any long trips to Ann Arbor. Good luck to everyone!
Work midnights & about to hit the hay, but swinging out to see if they have any left about 4ish. Hopefully they do.
They should have it at 4, still plenty left and no line at 11am.
Currently, there is no bottle limit and several cases left.
Got my three this morning. Didn't realize they were only 330 ml. Not paying quite enough attention I guess.
on the off chance anyone has any for trade, I'd love to try this, regular version is a favorite. worth a shot.
Sold out! Pissed off! I'd like a bottle or two. Have the shorts beers that were brewery only and some zombie dust and other fff offerings to trade. Someone hook me up!
Wow, that was quick.Hopefully Johnnie Nepal has my back!
got my bottles and had some on tap this morning. phenomenal beer.
Would have lasted quite a while if they wouldn't have lifted the 3 bottle limit. People must have bought cases. Wish I would have slept in instead of getting there early and leaving! To the slackers....go the spoils! Damn!
To the people who got cases. Lets work this trade. I'd love even one!
I have 2 bottles for trade BM me and we will work something out.
Lifted the limit? WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That was a bitch move JP. Seriously. I show up at 1pm and can only get 3, then they say, "ah well, let's just let everyone else buy as much as they want?" That sucks balls for me and anyone who showed up earlier. Lame as hell. End of rant.
I agree and sucks for the people who were going to drive 2 hours for only three bottles. But I'd be pissed if they told me three and I got three and others got a case.... Really a weird move by them
Glad I got there when I did then, got my bottles and had a glass on tap, I have to say, it is a phenomenal brew, found a few bottles of the regular stuff as well, going to have to see how they compare (funny the regular bottles were $12.99 and are 750mL).
I honestly will not be purchasing any JP beers ever again after this. Was planning on going back for dinner and beers on Tuesday, but that isn't happening anymore. There is too much other good stuff available for me to support a place that screws customers like this. Go ahead and say I'm overreacting...I'm ok with that.
You are overreacting.
Eh it's bs plain and simple. Bush league move by them. Easily Avoidable.
Well, this post was at 11:48 so in theory if you were there at one it should have been no limit. So, I don't know what to believe. Can anyone else confirm that they lifted the limit? I was really just commenting based on Benny3000's post, I have no first hand knowledge if it was lifted.
We got there at about 11:00 or so and the first floor was maybe 50% full and the bar was empty. A little while later we were told by the relief bartender that the limit had been lifted because there wasn't the demand they were expecting. At that time I didn't see people buying cases at a time. It was a very relaxed atmosphere in which I enjoyed company while having some fantastic Biere and snacks.
I asked what makes it the Grand Reserve from the regular... after reading the bottles, going through some three ring binders of notes, not sure who bartender finally talked to, but she came back with the regular Biere de Mars is aged in oak barrels for three months, GR is then aged for another 21-24 months.
I figured it was true. I am used to random wackiness at beer releases so I am not all pissed off. It just sucks that I got there right at ten had a draft(amazing beer) and left at 10:30. Then they make it unlimited only a half hour after I leave. Life sucks....have a beer.
All I can say is I know what time I was there and what I was told by the bartender. "Strict limit of 3 bottles."
So it sounds like it was lifted from like 11 to 1....even weirder. Somebody or a few somebodies must have bought a shit ton during that time and then they dropped it back down or just terrible communication between the workers at JP.
Weird. Was there from 11:15 to 12:30. I was told 3 bottle limit by the waitress when we got there. Gf decided to buy bottles when we were about to leave and was also told 3 bottle limit. Were the case sales only happening at the bar, or at tables as well? I'm fine with the 3 bottle limit. Just seems to be some inconsistency.
I picked up five bottles and had a glass on tap. So delicious. However, the highlight of my visit was the JP Burger with trouffle fries. So fucking good. I would probably trade a bottle or two if one anyone has some of the Shorts release from the weekend.
Lots of complaining for someone that got three bottles. Enjoy them and relax.
I don't know, I left around 11:15-11:30 and I did see someone with a case, however it was a group of four people together, so that makes sense. They probably only had 2-3 cases left at that time. Maybe they sold cases to people, but I don't think they did at least not by the time I left.
312$ for a case. i thought i had a problem...
Their cases were twelve of the 330ml bottles, but I agree this was a pricey beer to hoard if that's what happened.
oh a 12er eh. ya thats still insane but eh, america land of big timers..
I got there around 2 and there was a 3 bottle limit..I purchased my bottles..My mule got there 5 mins after and they were sold out...sucks, but glad I got the 3
And by the way, the beer was phenomenal..!!!! One of the best sours ive had...Was happy as I got last glass before the keg blew,,
I was happy with two bottles and one draft.
I got there around 11 and I only saw a few people who had bought bottles so I ate first and enjoyed one on tap. Left around 1230-1 and was told 3 bottle limit. Didn't see anyone with more than 3 while I was there but who knows. Was hapoy with what I got. Especially at $12 a bottle.
I was there from 10:30-10:40. Three bottle limit was being enforced by all the bartenders upstairs. Didnt really see anybody with more than that. Like I said, bottles seemed to be going fast and, by my estimates, it certainly looked like they would run out by the end of the day, but I wasnt sure if that was just the early rush. If they did in fact lift the limit, then thats a weak move by JP. Weird to think that they would though. Regardless of the pace they wouldve eventually sold out, even if a couple of days later. Just my $0.02.
I agree la roja was there for like 3-4 days AND at the TC location.really a crazy move by jp. Come on man!
I'm bummed this didn't make it to the TC location. If supply was that low, I'm even more blown away by the reports of them lifting allotments at the AA location. Thanks to a friend doing me a HUGE favor, I have a couple bottles waiting for me at his house. All in all, this feels like a bad roll out by JP. I hope they can clarify things on their FB page or something. Regardless, they will continue to get my money as I'm rather addicted to the amazing beers they produce.
My buddy got there at 10 am and the bartender selling bottles told his wife that they were lifting the limit. They left with 4 each.
I was there at 11:15 and there was no limit upstairs.
