    For those of you who have already received calls: what date did you email them to get on the list?

    Thanks for the info. I was a little slower than you getting on the list. Hopefully there will be enough to make its way to me.

    Out of curiousity, are they limiting it to one case per person this year, given the larger waiting list? The past 2 years they have offered 2 cases per person over the phone, but I'd guess they're cutting it to one with 400+ people.

    They didn't mention it on the phone. I originally put down 1 case in the pre-order and they called me to confirm that I still wanted it and wanted my credit card #.

    Emailed on 9/26 around 5PM and got a call today around 4:20PM. Very excited for more MoaS; love this beer.

    On a side note, this is the third year I've spoken with them on the phone to reserve a case (including the craziness of last year) and everytime Ken and co. could not be nicer.

    Try not to worry. They had plenty last year, despite the massive sh*tshow. I would guess they will have enough for everyone again this year. I was 9/27 and am still waiting on my call as well, hopefully tomorrow!!

    Just got a call from Ken (9/27, 3pm-ish). One of the most gracious people I have ever dealt with in craft beer. He was upbeat, hospitable, and didnt sound at all like a guy who has been calling people for 10 hours straight. Exactly as I remember him during the insanity last year.

    Ken told me he thinks 2012 is one of the best vintages yet. Very excited! Sincerely hope I make it out to the brewery one day and shake the man's hand personally.

    Ken also has been making a lot of people very happy today. I know when I got the call, I was really excited and couldn't stop thanking him.

    Just placed my order for a case. Couldn't have been easier...took a total of 4 minutes :)

    Can't wait. I really enjoyed 2011 when I had it.

    This should have been titled, "Where The F is my MoaS?". No discussion here as to the beer, itself...just the long distance acquisition. Carry on.

    I was happy to get a call from Ken this morning. I did pause for a minute when he offered the last case of 2011 MoaS, but I can't afford to charge two cases right now.
