    I feel like society members have gotten an email for pick ups a week before the major releases. So maybe they can chime in...

    If anything, they are releasing Lascaux today, which sounds badass and has awesome label art. Yea, not a whale, but I'm looking forward to it.

    I will say this for those that might care/be interested. I've followed Perennial since I got into craft(first release was '14 Abraxas). First off, for the most part Perennial has stuck with Thursday releases since 2015. I am pretty sure this includes both the '16 and '17 BAA. So if you REALLY want to guess, watch their tweets. If they don't tweet out what is releasing on a Thursday before that day, there is a chance they will release it that day. Of course I could be dead wrong and this year isn't a Thursday release, but don't be shocked if they tweet out at 3:45 on a Thursday a picture of BAA.

    I’ve heard it’s not today. Hoping my info is correct because I can’t there today.

    Releases used to always be on Thursdays (as far as I know). This “year” they haven’t been. Maman was a Saturday, BA Sump a Friday.

    I believe 16 BA Abraxas was a Friday, I remember this as I usually work late Thursday evenings and was actually able to make that one

    This is correct, BA Abraxas '16 was on a Friday, with a post on Twitter like 20 minutes beforehand.

    Alright, I’m ready for my confirmation of release date/time now. Thanks.

    Maybe they are just excited to have people visit the brewery tomorrow and just chose to use that picture? As in no BA Abraxas available...

    All jokes aside, anyone who's been, when do you need to be there to get a bottle?

    For some reason it just takes a little while for everyone to get them. The guys I pick up for have all now gotten the email

    The last two public releases of BAA have had 15 minutes to no notice, so I doubt anyone can even begin to guess the answer to this

    If I were you, as early as possible. While I was not at BA Sump, I was told that at some point they handed out tickets. Seeing how BAA is a bit more sought after, I am guessing tickets will probably be handed out. They didn't ticket Maman, so that is only speculation.

    If you come early, bring some beer to share and a taster. Perennial shares get pretty epic.

    So, maybe a different Way to go about this is...any idea how many bottles might be sold? 200 vs an order or 2 of magnitude larger is quite a bit different. Hoping someone might have some idea based on past releases? Those should serve as lower bounds.

    You had to be in line by about 3:30 for BA Sump to get a ticket. Had a buddy who missed by about 5 people. Hard to say without knowing the bottle counts for both, but I’d be there earlier than 3:30 for sure.

    Does anyone know if they’re holding the extra bottles for members (meaning they’re guaranteed to be available until the pickup deadline)?

    The way it looks on Facebook, getting there at 7am will be too late lol. I’m debating a drive down but 1pm would be the earliest I could make it.

    I am driving there from Chicago and will be there about 1245. Hoping that tickets have not yet been handed out at that point.
