    I'm in Lafayette. We might need to grab a beer sometime.

    Can anyone here say how PB achromatic holds up with about 6 months of age in it? I just got 2 bottles from this release in June... I want to save one for my pregnant wife. Will it be good in 6 months? Or do the flavors tend to fade fast?
    TIA

    Absolutely. That was the first thing I thought of when I heard you were in Lafayette. #412. I actually grew up much closer to Central PA, but I bleed Black & Gold.

    I live an hour south of Greeley and it doesn't make it to my town, good luck!

    You should be fine. If you are concerned, stick it in the fridge, it'll age slower.

    It's about time for another round of Fruity Bits - Pina, right? I need to replenish my WW hops and that's about as good as it gets.

    I would check the date on it too. The bottles we got at the June release were from 12/17.

    I think they mentioned on Facebook that they accidentally used the bottle date from last time and didn’t print new labels. I believe the bottle date should be from June.

    Man, I get waiting for an occasion to open something special, but I'm not sure I would be aging these beers.

    @Tarheel4985 or anyone else in the know, is there any brett in the stone fruit berlinner? Is it strictly lacto? Anyone know?

    Soooo, WW just released Imperial Brut, a collab beer they did with Boulevard as a draft only release exclusively. Our brewmaster, Steven Pauwels was out here for the festival and brewed it then. Excited to hear what you guys think. And, the guys from WW will be at Boulevard next week to brew a special collab beer that we will be getting limited kegs of in CO and distributing to the fine bars in early September. Keep a look out for it.

    I am 95% certain there is no Brett in the Stone Fruit Berliner. Why do you ask? I thought that beer was fantastic, BTW.

    I'm not sure WW has done... any... brett beers. Maybe Peach Climacteric.

    It’s a Kettle sour, correct? No Brett, just lactic acid, I’d guess.

    When I saw "Boulevard" and then "Br" my brain almost finished their new release as Brett not Imperial Brut and I got so hyped at the idea of WW first brett beer being a collab with the makers of Saison Brett. Still need to try a brut, but now I already kinda want a brett brut beer.

    Saw another triple of Medianoche crowlers hit this afternoon - what was the “People’s Choice” one about?

    I’m scheduled for another important business trip - coincidentally the week of GABF. Hoping (expecting, to be honest) for some good stuff to hit WeldWerks Thurs/Fri and I’m looking forward to finally picking up my Vanilla/Mexican Medianoche replacements.

    I need Fruity Bits - Pina! Anyone have feedback on the milkshake version? Thought about trading for a stash but like everyone, I spend too much on beer and need(ed) to reel it in.

    Peoples Choice Noche was the blend for the Invitational Festival. 17 month single barrel bourbon with cacao, marshmallow, and medianoche barrel aged coffee beans.

    I am surprised no one has mentioned the Sweet Disposition release yet.

    Sounds amazing of course, and ticks all the right boxes for an insane crowd/line. Middle of August and noon release though? Gonna be hot as balls... Any chance of moving the release time a bit earlier (like two years ago for Vanilla/Coconut Medianoche) @Tarheel4985 ?

    Just moved to Denver and planning on going for this release. How crazy are weldwerks bottle releases usually? Can I get to weldwerks at 12 and still get bottles or does it sell out before opening?

    I don't doubt it. But will it sell out that fast? There are always people willing to wait in line that early but where I'm from that only leads to an instant sell out 50% of the time.

    WW posted that they have 1000+ bottles but that it still wouldn’t be enough so take that how you will.

    I tried the imperial Brut IPA on draft. WW version was OK, but I'm not a big fan of the style in general. I kind of wonder if some of the rise of this style is breweries trying to get ahead of the hype curve of what they perceive to be the next big thing. I remember hearing about this "new style" last year and shaking my head.

    But in other news, Not so Hawaii(an) Punch was amazing. Wow.

    At 1000+ bottles with a 2 per limit, you'd think there's no reason to show up super early. That's 500+ allotments. But beer is so fucked nowadays. So who knows.

    For secondary/hype reference, someone on DBT offered up $250 for 2 bottles and the deal is done. I would also think 500+ allotments would be plenty where you wouldn’t have to show up super early but I think a lot of people may want to get in the taproom early as they will have “limited” bottles for on site consumption.

    Whoever did that needs to step up their game. You gotta set the bar high!
    I think the ceiling on this one is closer to $400 for both bottles - throw in a 4-pack of juicy bits. :stuck_out_tongue:
