    I think he was looking for WB Cake, not the collab with ET.

    Anyone been to Gravely at all? Haven't had a chance to go myself and was looking for some reviews.

    Haven't been, but everything on the Louisville beer groups has been highly complimentary.

    Was looking for actual Cake, not Biscotti Cake. And a guy did hook me up. :slight_smile:

    Ethereal Fad-Tastic Vol. 1 drops in bottles at the brewery on Friday at 3. West Sixth drops their 2nd batch of Flanders Red on Friday as well. Plus, Fest of Ales is Friday. I'll be pouring somewhere, if you see me, say hi.

    And there's a new batch of Sail to the Moon on at Ethereal, and it's the silly good hazy citra pale ale you have been seeking. No joke.

    Looks like cantillon has came and went throughout KY. Hopefully some of you guys throughout the state were able to snag one.

    Mirror Twin is expected to release their collab with Mile Wide next week. It's really, really good.

    The BA version with coffee and vanilla is at Arcadium. Worth the trip.

    In other kentucky news........... Looks like Ethereal is pumping out the bottles these days. From my count, in just a short time they've released: Peach better have my money, tropical gose, NEIPA, Lambda Oatmeal Stout, and Dog Days guava sour. Good to see out of them!

    Anyone remember the cost of bo and luke 4 pack last year or know what they are going for this year? Was it 80?
     
  14. Sturgeon83

    I want to say it was slightly more than that, something like 90. But I don't recall precisely. They haven't announced this year's price AFAIK.

    Pre-sale tickets for 2017 Bo & Luke Bottle Release will be available for purchase this Saturday, Sept. 16 at 10 a.m.! These'll give you the secured opportunity to get your hands on a Bo & Luke four pack.

    We’re also adding a VIP experience that will blow the daisy dukes right off yer behind! In addition to a secured opportunity to buy a Bo & Luke 4-pack, VIP guests will have access to a private indoor party and exclusive option to purchase Bo & Luke Brewskey, a barrel aged spirit distilled by Copper & Kings from Bo & Luke beer and Cr&ftwerk, a matured brandy aged in Bo & Luke barrels.

    https://www.eventbrite.com/e/boluke-turns-5-tickets-37064842943

    As stated above, no word on pricing this year.

    I was among the first 5 in line for Years 2 & 3 for B&L, and I'll not go back until they learn how to run a release. I skipped last year because they insisted on doing it in the middle of the week before Shelton Bros.

    I was out of town last year and had to have somebody pick up my allotment, but from all reports, it was extremely smooth. This year's event sounds pretty interesting, although the variants sound like the opposite.

    Did you read the actual variant stuff somewhere else or are you commenting on the portion of the Eventbrite page: "The 2017 variants reflect the five-year anniversary gift, wood. The three variants will include Bo & Luke aged on white oak, sassafras wood, and white ash"?

    I'll be picking up a VIP ticket and spending a decent bit of the day there. My wife should be on-board to DD as it's so close to my birthday. :grinning:

    I was going by what they stated on the event page and in the Facebook event. I'm hoping that, if they were aged on wood, they added something else to it, because that doesn't get me real excited.

    Is that not "actual variant stuff" when they post it on the event page?

    I went to last year's, which was the day before shelton and a terrible idea, but the release went alright. I think I waited in line for an hour to pick up the pre-sale 4pk. Inside wasn't super busy. It went much smoother than the year before.

    Sorry, when I hear variant I assume <insert X adjunct/additive/other liquor barrel type> here, rather than barrel material itself. I am interested in seeing how the kind of barrel material affects the beer, though.

    I wonder if it's double-barreled again this year, or they just put staves in a bourbon barrel. If anyone wants a pre-pre-sale access code for the release, PM me. I'm not attending this year.

    Someone did ask about the variants in the event thread, and they responded with what was in the event info:

    "The 2017 variants reflect the five-year anniversary gift, wood. The three variants will include Bo & Luke aged on white oak, sassafras wood, and white ash."

    So I'm assuming just aged on different kind of wood and no adjuncts? Regardless, I'm curious and will be there.

    I too will have an access code and won't be attending, so if anyone else wants it, you can have mine

    Went to mirror twin while I was home and didnt have a great experience. Hazy but lazy was ok, def not a NE IPA, too bitter. It was later on saturday and everyone in there was hammered (I assume from the UK game at noon). CBB was great as always.

    The Mirror Twin-Mile Wide collab IPA is amazeballs. Goes on this Saturday for a Mile Wide takeover at MT. There should be keg(s) of it at MW soon. But no cans, probably no fills.

    West Sixth dropped bottles of Snakes in a Barrel today ($19, limits unknown), and Ethereal is dropping 3 Wheats to the Wind ($8, no limit).

    I noticed W6 switched from corks and cages to caps for this batch of Snakes in a Barrel. Does that mean no more champagne yeast?

    Correct! Sours will still be C&C, the BA stuff will be capped from now on.

    I sat on a bottle of this for about 8 months. When I opened it it was totally flat, lost all carbonation. I wonder if this was a common problem that caused this change.

    Common problem is my guess. I opened mine last month and it was pretty much still. But it tasted fantastic.

    Dang it, Snakes in a Barrel is probably my favorite KY beer. Won't be in Lex til the 30th for the football game, any chance it holds out?

    Iffy. Really depends on the bottle count, which is unknown. People are buying, but no mad rush yet.

    I won't go into details, but the odds of the Snakes bottles surviving this weekend are low, so if you need a few, hurry.

    I stand corrected. It looks like it's came and went in Louisville and Lexington. NKY got some today, per the interwebs.
