    Which is sad because it was probably the best wet hop beer I came across last year.

    They shot themselves in the foot by charging the same for a 4pk instead of the 6pk for what used to be Born Yesterday.

    You think? I'm not a fan of price increases (obviously) but it was still probably the cheapest wet hop beer one the market.

    I did get a 4-pack of Castle Danger Mosaic today for $11. Pretty sure that was mispriced though. I avoided Contents Under Fresher on principle last year.

    Of a name change? You missed a killer beer.

    It was the move from a 6 to 4-pack and the price hike for me.

    2022 bottles starting hitting area stores in the Chicagoland area in the last day or so. Should be hitting other areas soon I would think. Binny's site has it listed for 13.99. Saw another store has it at 14.99 fwiw.

    $11.99 a four pack in my area. I miss the six packs for the same price but is still a pretty good deal. When they first switched to six packs, it was the same upc as the bomber. I think I got six packs for $6.99. I stopped at three different places it was the same price. I called the store to ask if that was correct and they mentioned it was still the bomber price in the system.

    Was that a Roundy's by chance? Same thing happened to me down here at a Mariano's (Bob Mariano's chain down here). $7 or $8 (bomber price) for a sixer. Helluva deal! Cheers.

    $10.99 a four-pack here, I bought the last three they had in the shelves. I miss the sixers for the same price but even the four-pack at this pricing is fantastic. Also picked up a four of the Founders French Toast Bastard and two cases of Celebration. Lets get after it.

    Lagunitas is only shipping out kegs of Contents Under Fresher this year. What a complete joke. They took their best seasonal (Born Yesterday) then changed the name last year and put it into 4 packs instead of 6 packs, and now they aren't even sending it out for distribution this year. Lagunitas is dead to me now.

    I'll give them $3 for 12oz of BA beer. And if it's good, which it probably is, I'll do it again and again.

    That's odd!

    Barrel-aged, then aged in bottles for 9 months.

    Hopefully it doesn't taste like green bell peppers.

    Says brewed in Chicago too so sat in a Chicago warehouse through the summer. Hot!

    Tastes good though. Thicker, sweeter and more barrel than normal. I’d say pick some up when you see it.

    You know, COVID brain fog is everywhere. Maybe the warehouse people forgot they had all that beer or mislabeled it or forgot to call the delivery trucks. Tech is always getting hacked, so maybe a hacker hit the system and made it look like all the beer was shipped. So many plausible explanations. :wink:

    Still drinking 2020s, no coffee to speak of but no pepper either. Just a great BA stout attractively priced.

    One would think they know when “stout season” is and just left it in barrels longer. :laughing:

    Please let me know when/where you find it.

    My last purchase was at my local Retail Beer Distributor and it was the last pack. It seems to me in our area we get a limited amount and they sell out super fast.

    Cheers!

    Definitely looking forward to grabbing some of this, but their handling of this release doesn't make me confident this beer is long for this world

    It’s on the neck of the bottle. They usually stamp it right at the fill line but this was higher up on the neck.

    My daughter is bringing me some from North Carolina since it's a rare sight in my neck of the woods. Paid the same price(13.49) as I did in April of 2021.

    This one is usually easy to find around here. Have not seen it anywhere in the Twin Cities area yet. Has it just not made it out here yet or is ot going to be a very limited release?
