    It was released this evening - 2 per person limit. Was able to get my two tonight and try a glass.....super, super tasty!

    Never was able to get anyone to hook me up with BA Abraxas, anyone willing to trade for that and BA Sump Coffee? Have Pentagram if anyone is interested??

    If anything I think these may be harder to trade for than the BA Abraxas due to the 2 bottle limit. On the other hand, this hasn't commanded the hype BA Abraxas did...

    I think the BA Abraxas release would have looked quite similar to this had it not been announced ahead of time. The hype train doesn't have much time to get rolling if the brewery announces the release 4 hours before the bottles go on sale.

    Just got back, bought only one bottle instead of two, but for those who've not yet gotten there, they appeared to be close to out (though I don't know how much, if any, was kept out of sight in a back room). Also tried it on tap in a 5oz pour, and it is the first Perennial beer I can honestly say I really enjoyed. Having missed out on BA Abraxas, I am much more pleased with this format.

    Any idea when the BA Mint stout is going to be available? I may have to try and trade for one of those.

    My Chocolate Rain would make a pretty tasty trade for some Perennial beers, I think...

    I was at the Sump release. The beer is great. I did miss BAA, and would do a trade here in STL if anyone is willing to do a one-for one with me?

    The Sump is really good and I don't drink coffee whatsoever. The BA Abraxas is the most unique beer I've ever had.

    Anybody know if the keg has kicked? Whenever I call the taproom, it sends me to voicemail. And I don't want to drive out there otherwise.

    They never said it said it kicked but I would imagine it did

    I'm sure Perennial will mention it on twitter today. I'm thinking there is still some on tap this week.

    This beer is excellent! Fun to have some in my cellar, after getting a generous sampling from our new friends in St. Louis.

    I'd recommend grabbing a glass on the tap. A full pour will run you 10 bucks but its a really good beer.
