    How did you find it amongst the million Cycle weekday stout offers?

    since I brought up the flavor of the week.. I have a serious question (and I really hope it doesn't melt the thread down..)

    First let me say flat out, I'm looking for suggestions, we all have different flavors we like..

    I'm trying to get several special awesome beers for a special occasion later in the year (probably to be drunk over a couple of nights, so as to not ruin the flavor of each). I've traded for a Rare 15, some eclipses, a couple years of BBPt5, a white chocolate (but it might be bad based on the year) and some smaller stuff. I'll have the voodoo ones from saturday, if I get to try them on tap and they don't hit right, I *might* consider letting one of the doubles I get go, but it'll have to be for something worth it.

    Without having a huge cellar, what would you recommend I take a run at getting? (nothing that tastes like grapefruit, or is a sour). Scarcity doesn't concern me, (like if I get something, I should save it as it will increase in "value"), whatever I get will be opened and drank, so I'm going all for flavor / awesomeness.

    This isn't really news per se, but I'm super stoked for Saturday. Like hecka. And I have a DD and three mules so I might eat my weight in cupcakes.

    I'm so looking forward to be moving copious amounts of boxes instead of drinking Voodoo beers on draft on Saturday afternoon. :slight_frown:

    JO's does a white apparition. IMHO might be better than dark apparition.

    Yeah? Going to have to seek that bad boy out then. Had the Vanilla and Coffee Bean Bourbon Barrel version yesterday and it was damn tasty (thanks, @Dogleg!). Vanilla kept the bourbon in check, but would've like a touch more coffee.

    I had Oro Blanco on tap at the Anniversary and it was awesome. They have a handful of "white stouts" and all that I have tried have been very very good

    Absolutely. I've had multiple shipments that have been reported delivered, only to show up at my neighbors' across the street (who were sensible/nice enough not to open it), or not for days later (which happened with a box from France). You gotta let the senders know. And for god's sake, just say thank you.

    Also you aren't allowed to have cupcakes and go to 100 item buffet after. That's the rules

    I heard if you listen to 2 Live Crew's Sport's Weekend synched up with Wet Hot American Summer, you'll here the secret instructions to get the 2016 bottling of BTBM. (It's in the trough of frog's legs at the 100 item Chinese Buffet)

    People are so dumb. Why would it be a secret bottling but the other older beers are pictured. Those people probably have brain damage from eating at 100 buffet

    So what's the deal with Short's brewing? I had soft parade which was OK, then I opened a huma lupa and it was literally the worst beer I've ever tasted. I got heavy notes of cardboard and public bathroom floor. I seriously cannot remember the last time I drained a beer. If one of my buddies throws me a natty light during a game that would be preferential to the experience I just had with that beer, and my threshold for "eh it's OK" is pretty damn low. I'm drinking a controversiALE from them now and I'm assuming it's some sort of spiced IPA? It's not great.

    I would say I got an oxidized bottle but it was bottled a few weeks ago, and I would assume quality control would take care of that. All purchased from GEMDSHY or whatever

    I wouldn't be able to pull the trigger on that, but my original post was a joke. It seems like the entire trade forum involves Ground State.

    Yeah, I saw someone post a screencap of their fb page and it looks like it will last in to tomorrow. My post was kind of in jest though in regards to how sought after this is right now.

    Not that I have any interest in going for it but I'm very curious to see if the trade value stays the course like FO or goes the way of Dragontrax.
