    There was a fb post on Feb. 4 that announced, "New batch of our 18th Street Collabo Brotherhood Patersbier & Well Read Temptress in bottles today, and making their way out in the world tomorrow."

    Who knows what this week has in store!

    Things are almost back to normal at the brewery. We have the replacement chiller and FV 7 online. We'll have FV 8 filled this week. We are looking into a new bottling system to improve quality and shelf stability.

    Fresh NvU and Quintessential with Amarillo should be going out tomorrow. WRT & BH are at both WLV & Binny's Lincoln Park.

    Drinking a Froggy Style right now - I'm a porter fan in general, this one definitely delivers for me. Thanks again PW.

    NvU, and Quintessential with Amarillo hops (not batch 28) should be available at Binny's LP for pickup in the morning. WLV hasn't ordered yet, Kristina has been traveling doing awesome stuff as usual... brewing, picking whiskey barrels, etc.

    Revenge will be out in 2 weeks as will Chipotle Smoked Porter, Raspberry Truffle Abduction will be in 3 weeks.

    I finally got around to grabbing a bottle of the second batch of Froggy Style from LP Binnys. This beer is fantastic. I enjoyed the first batch way back when as well. I am surprised that it still sits on shelves. A hoppy wheat porter may sound a bit odd I guess but I cannot say enough good things about this beer.

    Truffle as in chocolate = awesome sounding beer
    Truffle as in, well actual truffle = not as sure

    I hope it's the former, but then again I'd almost have to buy a bottle just to see. I'll admit I did enjoy me a few bottles of the Forager when Mikkeller did a truffle stout/porter(?). That was some tasty stuff, but very little truffle influence. The fruit and truffle combo scares me... who am I kidding either way it's Pipeworks!

    Standard Abduction was one of my favorite beers last year. I am so spoiled by Coffee Vanilla and Raspberry Truffle coming hot on the heels. You guys rock.

    I thought about this, and while I'm sure it's chocolate, I'm totally on board either way.

    Try West Lakeview Liquors, I'd call first though. They got some extra cases for Friends with Benefits.

    February 13, 2013 (aka, the date ISO:FT BA Pipeworks (pre) Listings started on BA) Update

    Our old friend Ninja vs Unicorn returns this week and is available at Binny's Linocln Park for FwB pick up now, and will be available at West Lakeview Liquors for FwB tomorrow morning! Also out this week is a new batch of Quintessential American Wheat Ale. This time we brewed it with Amarillo hops!

    Our barrel program expansion continued this week as we received 13 freshly emptied Bourbon barrels from the fine folks at Binny's Beverage Depot. Both Binny's and West Lakeview make their own single barrel selections for sale at their stores. We filled Evan Williams, Buffalo Trace and Four Roses barrels with Last Kiss, Abduction and End of Days. We had an Angels Envy barrel, however it was leaking too much so we were unable to fill it.

    A second batch of Ninja vs Unicorn will hit stores on Monday as reinforcements. Revenge of the Unicorn, Chipotle Smoked Porter, regular Smoked Porter, and Close Encounters should drop the following Tuesday.

    Cheers!

    Would this have been the barrel the bourbon was aged in, or the port wine barrel that it would've been finished in?

    They tweeted a picture yesterday and the barrel said 'Angels Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey - Finished in Port Barrels.' (Picture below)

    iirc, pipeworks batch 1 was barrel aged smoked porter. i actually didn't much care for it. but pretty much everything else i've had has been solid.

    Interesting. I assume they ordinarily take the bourbon from the port barrels and blend the port-finished product before bottling. Guess when you're selling it off as a "hand-picked barrel," it finds its way to another barrel.

    How's the latest NvU drinking? Gonna either pick this or Galaxy Unicorn on the way home.

    Also pick up the new Quintessential with Amarillo hops. Great brew.

    Are the BA offerings going to be available for non-FwB members? Because after drinking my final Last Kiss two nights ago, missing out on a BA version of this beer would be utterly devastating.
