    I have zero facts to base this on, but I heard Willett Rye.

    Not sure what I'm more excited for:
    The beer,
    The possible ManBearPig glass,
    Or the lovely Misses Guzick's bombass cupcakes!

    Not sure when @tommyguz plans to release details about the cupcakes, but I've seen the list and they're ridiculous. I heard he might even make some floor edition again!

    Can I pickup my bottles in Meadville to try some of these legendary cupcakes if I signed up in Homestead?

    Also, my wife requested some MBP underwear. Can this happen as well?

    FWIW I like Southern Tier and think this is a very smart business move. They are going to make a killing there.

    Agreed I think it'll be cool. Should be a nice spot.

    Headline should read: "Southern Tier Brewing to Open Location in Pittsburgh, the Biggest Pumpkin Beer Market in the Country"

    Absolutely. I live 1/2 a mile away and only go to Burgatory ever because everything else down there is so underwhelming.

    This is crazy and weird to me. I've never minded ST as much as some others...stopped at their Lakewood location a few months ago on a trip to upstate NY and it was a nice place...their prices were really good...so hopefully that stays the same being on the North Shore.

    They sell an insane amount of beer here. This is an easy decision for them. And while I don't usually grab most of their beers, it'll be a good spot for the area.

    Looking at some of your trade posts, I'm sure you'll be trying to flip them even though they're going to be awesome. I mean if you were trying to trade Hop Juju for FO, Puga Black Maple, Nut Smasher for OG Rare, etc., you're probably going to be trying to get Blauw with these.

    So just saw GNVP and BBVD on sale for 250 for the pair. All hype is good hype though right?

    That being said really glad I live so close and get a 11 awesome voodoo brews for way less that that!

    Depends entirely on your perspective. To me, it's mostly irrelevant.

    Hey all

    Not sure if anybody would be down to split an allotment? Maybe somebody is low on $ right now but still would like some bottles but not all the bottles? I would be down to split a partial with somebody. Could always trade too. Located near Philly, have tired hands bottles and other beers if $'s don't float your boat.

    @RyanMcFly1985 do I sense sarcasm and/or saltiness? Lol. I see nothing wrong with trying to trade high and not undervalue beers. These beers should imo trade right up there with the kbbs, ba abraxas, etc of the world. Black Magick is more rare than both and man bear pig can be a one time thing from a place that makes insanely great stouts. So, yes, I'm not going to trade it away for parabola or other beers that get released by the caseload every year

    Where did you see this on sale? Wondering if it's this douchebag I know that's also on here that's selling every single local thing available to his grimy hands on Facebook.

    I'm sure Southern Tier's ubiquitous branding, chain feel, & gluttonous food quantities aren't going to cut it on the North Shore.

    I didn't get anything too crazy for the first one. I traded one set for Dbhuna and the other for nutulhu, but that was one of each. Now, after people had them and were very "meh" about it, I felt lIke I definitely made out on them. I knew I wouldn't be a huge fan of the style though, and that having on them draught would be more than enough. People made fun of me for trading all of them for those beers, but it seems now people just use them as extras, so it wasn't THAT bad

    As far as I know, it might take a phone call to change your preference if you havent signed up yet. They ask which location you'd like to pick your bottles up at. So I'd say yes as long as you say this when you sign up.

    I go up to Chautauqua every year around the 4th and try to always stop at Southern Tier. Pretty cool joint and there always seems to be events going on there. Very fair prices, especially on growlers, so I'm looking forward to the new location.

    Shrug. Agree that the place totes doesn't mesh with our local scene of which everyone is super gel; I'm so blase that I only drink standouts that no one bothers to rate, because we are literally up to our neckbeards in awesomest beerz. Drink my pee because it's full of beer that is better than your beer.

    Edit: Shrug. Shrug a billion times.

    Hey, I'm not saying they don't make good beer, just that it's a competitive market & when you've got stuff like the up-&-coming War Streets & the soon-to-be-open-sometime Allegheny City around, it'll be tough to stand out.

    Considering all you one-percenters are handing Voodoo about $70,000 within these few days, fingers crossed for no credit card scanner malfunctions.

    I think at the very least, southern tier will be 100x better than the rivertowne spot that's currently down there.

    I think he's just making the point that you seem all hyped up on what these beers are trading for, "highly" or "lowly" without ever having tried them.
