    (Hopefully) dumb question : the Door Kriek bottles I picked up at this weekend's release are labeled 2015. Were these bottled late in the year and released in January, or did I somehow get bottles from the January 2015 release?

    I don't believe there was a Door Kriek release in 2015. Most likely, bottled and labeled in 2015, sold in 2016. Enjoy.

    I believe the original release was November of 2014 at the O'so anniversary party, those bottles are not dated. Batch 2, which was released this past weekend is labeled 2015.

    Hmm.. Door Kriek was definitely one of the bottles released at the coolship party in January of 2015; that's why I'm wondering..

    If there is a date on the label, then that's most likely the bottling date, not the release date.

    Yep, I get that. It's conceivable though that these were bottled in January of 2015 for the January 2015 release, *or* later in 2015 for the January 2016 release

    I could be wrong on the November vs January release, but the original release 100% does not say 2015 on the front of the label like the bottles that were released this past weekend do. The 2015 bottles are the second batch.

    No date = batch 1, bottled in 2014 and released January of 2015.

    2015 date on label = batch 2, bottled in 2015 and released this past weekend in January of 2016

    They both contain delicious beer type product.

    First batch is undated, and was bottled in 2014
    Recent batch is dated 2015 which is the bottling date.
