    You can hit the F5 key to refresh a website. It's a joke. Tickets go on sale at noon on the 28th. I'm cautiously optimistic people will be able to get bottles. This is the largest release we've done with 5 different beers at once, and we dropped bottle limit down to 2 per person.

    Are the bottle counts of each type similar to your previous releases? ~900 if I remember correctly.

    I'm actually kinda surprised I wasn't one of the top 100 I purchased something from every release except Cassis which was intentional due to lack of funds. I also never had an opportunity to get the OG Scarlet Letter and I never bought any Fox & The Grapes due to my own ignorance (I never realized wine grapes and Lambic went together so well until I tried Vigneronne) and if I remember right the release was postponed.

    I assume it has something to do with the amounts purchased because my friend was one of those top hundred customers (its also possible we split an allotment or two in the past through his BPT account I don't exactly recall).

    If I do get shut out I will firstly, lay all blame on @FFGeuzeria and their terrible system they've put in place. I will secondly be demanding satisfaction from Levi for besmirching my good name, I will not tolerate such treachery!

    Seriously though I'm stoked for the chance at some blueberry lambic from you guys not to mention all the trade ships whatever I'm able to buy tomorrow, It would be hard to be too disappointed.

    Good luck bros!

    I know 1 guy in the top 100 and he has maxed out every single online purchase possible, and when more bottles became available he has maxed those out as well. So I am not at all surprised I didn't make the top 100.

    I'll take that into cooperation. Now how about we go toe-to-toe in bird law.

    Yeah some people just have way more disposable income for stuff like this, I'll only be able to get 4 bottles this time for example. I dig the concept anyways even if I fall short nice to reward the die hards.

    Try refreshing the page frequently. Sometimes bottles get released from stagnant shopping carts and become available again.

    Buddy just snagged 2 Bosbes a couple minutes ago. Some people letting them go apparently.

    900+ bottles of Bosbes. Same batch size as all our other beers. Looks like if you didn't get it in the first 20 seconds, you might have missed out. Over 40,000 page views in that hour.

    Don't give up. I just kept refreshing and got 2 Bosbes, 2 Blended Sours, a Rakau and a Blood Orange about 3-4 minutes ago.

    If it's not fruited, people don't seem to want it. I absolutely loved White Lodge!! Top 5 new beers I've have in 2016...beat out fresh LPG in my opinion

    I was one of the fortunate ones again, thankfully my boss is really cool and helped me get my allotment while we were working lol. @FFGeuzeria it appears as though going toe to toe on bird law won't be necessary........for now.

  32. FFGeuzeria

    FFGeuzeria Initiate (0) Dec 8, 2014 Wisconsin

    Yea, but they are expensive. Not sure how many people would pay ~$80 for a wooden cradle.

    Probably the same people that pay hundreds of dollars on plane tickets, hotel rooms, shipping, ect just to get your beer. May want to give it a go with a few baskets just to see.

    Yeah I guarantee you they would sell. Corey has the side project boxes for $50 and they sell out pretty quick.

    The pick up was pretty brutal. I got in line at 4 and got my bottles at 5:30.

    What was the difference between this time and the past times? Were there just more non-proxies? Or were there a lot of proxies that didn't put down the name of the eventual trustee so FFG had to go scramble and put everything together? Or did the credit card machine break down? We must know.
