    are the Filmishmish and GM short pours?

    One way to get deals on Bruery goods. :D

    I actually got those two from an employee, so they are just unlabeled, and in the case of GM, unwaxed (bummer, cause I wanted to smell the wax). The filmishmish is actually full all the way up the neck with like ~1 inch to the cap, and the GM is a normal pour. Haha, I wouldn't shy away from some short pours, though! :)

    It's cool to get rarities like that. I know the beer quality doesn't change, but it's kind of a cool story.

    Enjoy them. I've only had the Filmishish, but heard the WC is very very good. GM sounds wonderful as well.

    how does the white oak jai alai compare to the regular? I live in south florida so can get the normal with ease (and the maduro brown which really don't do it for me) but haven't seen the variations of jai alai out and about, at least not since I realized I wanted to look

    Between Seattle, Vancouver, and Victoria, I came away with a nice little haul of west coast goodies (plus a Cantillon as the cherry on top):

    Obviously would have loved to get more but this put my checked bag at exactly 50lbs (with a suit bag and some shoes inside as well).

    Really strong oak note to it, and very very good. If you are a Jai Alai fan, the white oak is a must try IMO.
