    Clearing up the crowler question. So yes the cans came in. They are currently using Hardesty's machine from Narrow Gauge at the brewery. Plan is to run through some of the draft they have at the brewery as they don't know when inside tasting room will reopen. Eventually they are looking at purchasing a crowler machine for the Webster brewpub.

    Hoping to have some crowler selections this weekend for the holiday.

    I can also tell you they have the patio set up for social distance drinking. Right now cans only outside served from a bar Chuck built out of recycled and stained pallets. Setup is at the garage door where releases happen sometime.

    looks like crowlers make their debut today. nice selection of meriwether, hommel, resilience and romanesco. very cool of NG to loan them their crowler machine.

    Nice twist on the typical BA Vermillion! Excited to try it just hope it's not overly sweet, but Perennial knows what they're doing so not too worried.

    "Maple Barrel Aged Vermilion is a first time variation on our barrel aged, English style Barleywine. The result is a ruby hued beer bursting with raisin and caramel notes upfront, and a rich maple finish. Aged for 14 months in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels used for maple syrup, we hope you enjoy this special version of Vermilion as much as we do."

    Perennial released BA Vermilion to the public this morning via their website. I was surprised how long it lasted since it is the first time being in maple barrels. I'm excited to try it.

    Anyone hear if BAA will be next on release for Perennial? Seems like it would be coming soon, though I know that means nothing.

    BA Vermillion was pretty good. Now I am looking forward to the BAA release and the possibility of a BA Ambiente release around the same time since the non-BA versions were released at the same time. Hoping to do a side-by-side.

    really looking forward to trying BA Vermilion 2020. the maple barrels sound like a nice twist.

    i noticed a new crowler option on their square sit today... In Droves Schwarzbier

    Is this the chance to buy just one beer or is it basically a lottery release for Maman? Where they are donating their entries to a good cause.

    raffle pick to give the winner a chance to buy the bottle i think.

    Raffle to win a Maman bottle outright (not purchase), I'm pretty sure. Money to great causes! Do it if you can!

    Also In Droves is really good. Really tasty and a nice low ABV. I'm a big fan.

    Just to clarify on In Droves. It's technically a Bluejacket beer (brewed up there) that Perennial collaborated on.

    you get a chance to try it yet? they had onsite bottle pours last weekend, had a plastic cup pour. I got a ton of maple and not much barrel. thick too, almost chewy. Good but I'm letting my bottle chill for a bit before I open it.

    opened a bottle last weekend at a share, but it was a little later in the share. was a bit sweeter than usual but good mouthfeel. i think i’m with you though - will be waiting a while before opening my other bottle.

    Me and three friends in Michigan registered, two received emails this morning and two did not... Super small sample size obviously but thought I'd share.

    I received an email this morning, but I also purchased Perennial beer to increase my chances with 10 extra entries. One other person in my group received an email (they didn't have extra entries) while three other people in my drinking group didn't receive emails.

    Just picked up a bottle of the new CBC Maman and it says "contains lactose" on the side. I've never had Maman before. Do the other years all say that/have lactose added?

    I'm sure it will be great either way. Just curious.

    I’ve only had 2019 Maman and the bottle has “contains lactose” on the side of the label.

    Both 2018 and 2019 say it contains lactose, not sure about earlier years.

    2018 & 2019 for sure. i don’t think 2017 or 2016 said that.

    It has always had it as far as I know, but they stopped using lactose towards the end of 2018 so the 2020 non CBC release might be the first time without it.

    As a PSA: you have to use craftcellr to get your bottles now. If you have someone proxy for you, you have to assign them as a proxy for each bottle now, and they have to show an email for each bottle they’re picking up.

    So I don’t have to use my normally assigned proxy? Wonder if they are still enforcing the “proxy limit”?

    can anyone shed any light on the Perennial Lockwood location? mainly what i am wondering is: was the location already an existing Olive + Oak location and Perennial moved in or is the whole thing (space & partnership) new?

    O

    Olive + Oak moves down the block into an old Auto Body Repair building. A gut rehab was done. Front of the building is Olive + Oak. In thesthe back is Perennial on Lockwood. They all access each other. There is also an event space and a shared Atrium. The brewpub space is huge and cool as hell as is the atrium and event space. They are starting patio only lunch service tomorrow.

    thank you as always @Ericstl6 ! originally i got the idea that it was only a taproom with kegs and cans provided by the original Perennial but it looks like not only are they brewing there but releasing new beers. cheers & thanks again.

    Just want to say, I had a chance to try the coffee stout and fantastic voyage in the last few weeks and Perennial is doing some absolutely amazing things with stouts. Beautiful work!
