    Confirmed with the brewery that the New Glarus GTOM weekend release will be Peach.
    750 bottles each day Fri-Sun - 2/person. Let the hysteria begin!

    Edit to my post:
    Confirmed with the brewery that the New Glarus GTOM weekend release will be Peach.
    Enough for 750 people to get 2 bottles each day Fri-Sun - 2/person. Let the hysteria begin!

    Last year I heard it was an average of 600 bottles/day versus 1,500 per day this year (now that they have the new sour production space going). Can anyone else confirm? If so, that should reduce the panic and trade values accordingly!

    Here's last year's info:
    Friday- 720
    Saturday- 360
    Sunday- 350

    So just over 1400, or less than 1/3 of what they're brewing this year.

    Not to high-jack thread, but I have someone traveling to Milwaukee at end of Aug. told him to bring back as many bottles of NG sours/fruit beers as he can find. How much do the big bottles of their fruit/sour beers cost on average?

    $8.99-9.99 depending on where you shop. Right now, Raspberry Tart, Strawberry Rhubarb, and Serendipity are around, Belgian Red is quickly becoming hard to find. Oud Bruin 4-packs are $10.99-11.99. Don't miss out on Scream IIPA if a new batch hits while your around. You could probably talk someone out of the Peach Sour Brown as well, especially if you bring something like Mexican Cake to trade.

    Thanks.

    He's visiting family. He said there is a solid bottle shop near where hes going at this website: www.discountliquorinc.com

    Seems like a pretty solid store IMO.

    Discount is one of the best in the area. Woodmans grocery store is another great spot, their liquor department is bigger than some grocery stores. If not the Whole Foods on Milwaukee's eastside gets a nice allocation of NG product.

    Here’s the update on New Glarus R&D Wild Peach Limited Sour Release:

    - This is the 2nd release from their Wild Fruit Cave. It is a sour brown ale spontaneous fermentation with Michigan peaches with a blend of 1, 2, and 3 year old beer. You should pick up notes of oak, leather, horse, and a hint of bourbon.

    This is a limited brewery-only release, and only 20 barrels of this special beer was blended and bottled.

    The beer will be incrementally released on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the Great Taste of the Midwest weekend (Aug. 8th-10th):

    1) Each day, only 750 customers will be allowed to purchase 2 bottles each of R&D Wild Peach.
    2) Each bottle is 500mL of funky peachy deliciousness.
    3) Customers can line up early.
    --- Numbered tickets will be distributed to folks in line at ~8:30 am.
    --- People with tickets can leave (eg., to go get breakfast, etc.).
    --- Beer sales will begin at 10 am; ticket holders must be back onsite at 10 am or lose their "line spot¨ for the subsequent sales.

    New Glarus has standard pricing. 6 packs $7 to $8, 4 packs $10, 750's $8 to $9, Pint bottle R&D releases $9. Only exception is 20th anniversary which I believe was $8 in pint bottles. Any price increase would likely be across the board.

    Edit: This also belongs in the Great Lakes thread.

    I meant that NG has a price that is basically fixed for each format with the one exception. I think you knew what I meant even though I misused the term "standard pricing" thanks for pointing it out though. Hard to believe anyone could haved derived meaning from my comment without clearing that up.

    So now it seems I'm in the appropriate thread. The bottles are released at the brewpub/brewery or do they have their own bottle shop?

    A sour BROWN with peaches? That's...unique. I'm sure it will be fantastic and permanently out of my reach too, just like VSB.

    To help reduce pressure on staff and ensure everyone gets what they should, NG has asked WI residents to line up at the beer depot and out of state people to line up at the brew pub

    I will be traveling to Madison to see family and heard this great news. I have never been to New Glarus before and see that it has a riverside and hilltop brewery. Which one do I need to go to in order to get in line for the release?

    Would is be safe to assume that Friday would be less busy since it's a workday?

    If you weren't in Wisconsin, maybe. If the Packers are playing or New Glarus releases a beer it might as well be a holiday. :wink:

    Seriously though, I think if you get up early, arrive sometime before 8am, you stand a pretty good shot at landing your allotment. If not, then you'll have to get there earlier Saturday or Sunday.

    If there are 750 people there by 8 am on Friday, I don't even want to know what the road/driveway leading up to the brewery is going to look like.

    Everyone just needs to take a deep breath and relax. This is a three day release. No need to arrive before the sun rises. As long as you arrive by 10:00 am, you're going to be ok!

    Makes sense to me to get there by 8:30, based on NG's organization of the release. Get your #'s, head down to NG for a bite to eat, and be back by 10am when they call in the early numbers. Bottles will be in hand by 10:30, so 2 hours start to finish with breakfast in between. Now that sounds like a good morning.

    trading forums are already lit up pre trading is a bad sign. It means that much more is at stake and they will be exponentially more dickish to get what they want which isn't even wild peach in most cases. They just use it to get something else.
