    Can't wait for this beer again. Met one of my best friends at the very first ORF way back in 09. Can't wait to do it again!!!!!

    I guess they are no longer worried about Old Infected Rabbit Foot anymore? Is Duck Rabbit even brewing Rabid Duck still? I can't remember seeing that around in forever but then again, I quit looking for their beers after numerous infections and their lack of response.

    I joked with some friends that one way to get around the infection issues from Duck Rabbit is to have them brew their beer at Foothills for ORF, which is what's they're doing.

    So like 2 months? Is that standard procedure for orf? I've never had it.

    Do we actually know that they've bottled it? 3 months seems like a long time for a beer to wait around in a bottle before release. My assumption is that it'll be more like 5 months and get bottled early November.

    ETA: Just looked at an older ORF bottle that I have. No barrel aging length is listed on it.

    right, i didnt think about the possibility that it was an empty bottle in the photo post

    That's what I'm thinking. Share an old photo from the last release, but they'll do the actual bottling themselves last week of October/ early-November.

    Huh, would you look at that? It's fixed!

    FYI: If you need to change a thread title, hit report on the first post and in the comment say what you need it changed to and why. I've found it'll get handled by the friendly mods within a day or two. I only do this for stuff that really need to get changed (like... when the wrong year is in the title).

    I've seen the 11/11 date on OHB's and DR's social channels, but no event details yet.

    Olde Hickory posted on Facebook this morning with the date (11/11) and that all 3 breweries will be hosting their own release events. No detailed information on their release event yet though.

    Sounds like with all 3 places hosting bottles it will be quite the allotment. Sort of shocked they are doing all of the breweries.

    I'm sure they all brewed it up on 15bbl fermenter (or bigger). Even if they did it in the 5bbl pilot, thats still a big chunk of beer.

    Considering it was brewed at Foothills, I think if there were any question it would have been released at Foothills. I'm glad its releasing at OHB as well though.

    Who knows. I'm just happy there are options. Makes it more feasible for people like myself. Excited to try it for the first time.

    I'll be doing OHB then Fonta Flora. Hitting AHS means you're guaranteed to not get FF bottles/growlers since AHS is 4-6 and Fonta opens at 3. Good luck on hitting all three!

    Per Foothills:

    "North Carolina’s original collaboration beer has been resurrected after a 5-year hiatus! It will go on tap at our pub and tasting room Friday November 10th, and will be released in bottles Saturday November 11th simultaneously at Foothills (both locations), Olde Hickory Brewery locations and The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery. The beer is a blend of imperial stouts from all three breweries (yes, we used Sexual Chocolate for our part) and has been aging in Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels. There will be no bottle limit on purchases."

    If they've got such a crazy amount, I wonder if I could swap Fonta Flora and Olde Hickory and try to get Rhythm Rug bottles then pick up Olde Rabbit's Foot.

    Yea, but won't Olde Hickory do a morning release and then the Fonta release isn't until 3?

    OHB hasn't released any details on how they're doing their release. If they're doing it from the Station (like they did Maple Syruption) then it'll be after they open. But if they do it like they've done most of their other releases it'll be run out of the brewery and will probably be earlier than 11. My guess based on the volume is that they'll run it out of the brewery and it'll be earlier (9 or 10 probably, can't remember what time they've done other releases).

    Olde Hickory has a facebook event up now. Looks like fresh tastings will be at the Station Friday night while the bottles go on sale Saturday morning at the brewery.

    edit: $20 per bottle, no limits
