    IIRC, it was printed on the bottle order form, you just needed to order one. Sorry that you missed out, I hope you were able to get a pull or three on tap.

    I'm actually out in Boise for Christmas break but one of my classmates was nice enough to swing by and grab me a few bottles. I'm sure I'll get a chance to try it at some point since I live about 4 miles from Kuhnhenn but I might have to be patient...

    #18 in line Representing,

    I have to say that this event was handled real well. The customer service was great. They even misplaced my order and did everything they could to find it in a timely manner. In addition the BBBW on tap was so good. I also enjoyed some fresh DRIPA. This event was well worth making from Pittsburgh.

    I saw it being made, and it may be the most badass piece of glassware I've ever seen. It's lavender and pink swirl with a single horn on the side.

    I ended up getting some BA solar, BBBW and Brazilian Pepper Mead. BB4D on tap was great. Might go back there just to sample some more beers!

    Made my first visit yesterday -- my wife got a shillings and I had a BBBW on tap. Then I found myself with a mixed case of all kinds of wonderful things. As noted, only the 2 vintages of BB4D and the one of BBBW are gone.

    Sorry, yes. Overlooked it because BA Solar Eclipse is what I was excited about in that category...

    Thank you all who came out and enjoyed yourselves this year. As many have pointed out, we implemented some new methods for order handling, etc. this year, and we're extremely happy to get all the positive responses from all of you.
    Look for some more surprises in the coming months, including some awesome changes to St Patrick's Day and beyond.
    Cheers!

    Three full pours of that ended my Friday night in the best (or worst?) way possible :)

    Got the call on Saturday, and I went in Sunday. Grabbed my brews, and I enjoyed a BBBW and a pour of chocolate raspberry port pyment before heading out. Both were great. Again, nice customer service, guys.

    Can't wait to go back. I could get used to BBBW on tap.

    At the risk of sounding like a creeper, I have to admit I've had a crush on Samantha since I first went to Kuhnhenn. But yeah, all the staff at Kuhnhenn have provided awesome service everytime I've ever been there (even during their busy times)...

    Saturday was a first time visit to the Brewpub for me. Had a chance to visit the store before, but was in a rush, and was forced to roll back to Canada with out getting a Dripa or two. The BBBW is one of the best beers I've ever had, and I'm currently cracking my first bottle of Solar Eclipse. You guys have rifled into the high ranks in my books. The Dripa was soooo fresh tasting, and I enjoyed most of the selections from the Soliltice paddels a lot. Can't wait to head back for the second round release of BB4D, and fresh pints of DRIPA. Cheers from Windsor, ON!

    Random shot in the dark here, but my parents may have left a six pack behind at the Winter Solstice. My parents dropped off my box of goodies today, and I am short two BBBW and four American Imperial Stouts. They left Kuhnhenn around 4:30ish...

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    They were very likely out of both of those by 4:30....but check your receipt to see if you got charged. I know they ran out of a couple of meads I wanted and they had to reprint a receipt with a new total.

    Yeah, they were charged, and had their order placed by 11:30. I gave a call to Kuhnhenn, but just thought I'd throw it on here to see if somebody may have seen something. Thanks.

    Just to heap more praise onto the guys at Kuhnhenn and the release. I got #180 something on Friday and couldn't stay for my order. I told someone working there I needed to leave and he said they would call about it later. Long story short, I received a call the next day. Unfortunately I was about 300 miles away. I indicated the same and the person on the phone (Phil?) asked when I would be back. I told him Wednesday and he told me he would hold it for me. Just got to Kuhnhenn and picked it up (along with few others and two pulls of BBBW). My order was very small but they have a customer for life (though I probably would have continued to go anyway).

    Cheers to all those that stopped me and said hi, YES, I was the guy with the baby in tow. He did great for his first winter solstice! I am disappointed at no bb4d, but I knew they had a bottle supply issue going in and I am sure I will get some soon. BB Solar Eclipse was as good as advertised!

    F the guy that cut and Dan if I was there with you I would have pulled him out back with you. That kinda stuff is unacceptable and I wish you would post his handle on this thread.

    Kuhnhenn also held my order until Wednesday so I could come back and pick it up after being away for the holiday. They substituted a BB Eclipse for a BBBW and I was okay with that since its still on draft. Cheers to you Kuhnhenn!
