    Didn't see this mentioned, and hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I picked up my beer on Saturday afternoon and Ryeway to Heaven was sold out.

    Should be plenty of 2021 still available, but yes 2022 is gone at the brewery.

    Weird take of the day: I drink most stouts a little under room temperature, but this year’s cafe Deth is surprisingly good cold, too.

    I've been keeping an eye out for this year's Café after hearing all the praise in here, and heard a buddy say it hit locally, only to find it gone. Today another buddy of mine sent a pic and it was 2021. I couldn't believe it because I thought last year's was solid too, so it was weird it was still around, unless distro or that shop held some back for some reason. Did 2022 Café only just starting shipping out?

    in my area (Central IL) my personal thoughts are that since regular deth 2021 and cafe 2021 were still lingering on shelves, the distributors were holding back the 2022 cans. but be reminded that 1) this is just a working theory and 2) i think distributors are a racket almost as bad as insurance (basically a legalized form of mafia-type activity).

    if you need some, feel free to holler. binny’s had a decent amount when i went late this morning.

    Noticed this as well. Was spoiled the last few years with Ohio getting deep woods the Tuesday after the brewery release. This year was over three weeks for DT and cafe delivered with it was 2021. Some 2021 vanilla as well. Not sure why. Im betting that the liquor czars in Ohio held it up since the label changed. The guy at the local shop said the UPC didn’t change from last year, so probably not a cause. Still waiting for SJ to show up.

    I think we asked the same question earlier in the thread regarding Cafe Deth 2021 still being available while 22 was sold out and BeerCruncher replied.

    Quick update so I don’t disappoint anyone. They trimmed back these takeovers for very understandable reasons. I’m told it will be 8 beers, 2 deep wood.

    Taproom had some great live music with a chill 4 piece folk band today.
    That cranberry-orange Pursuit of Freedom is tasty and refreshing.

    No more Deep Wood variants left due to Crowler demand...you bastards.

    I don't recall seeing Mean Gene available since you put on a Keg after Mean Gene Okerlund passed away. Is this keg from the OG 2014 batch or a new batch brewed recently?

    I never have had Bean Gene before, so definitely tempted to ignore the possible rain this evening for a shot!

    Really great lineup all around!

    Just here to sing the praises of VSO Dark Mode. Wonderful big barrel yet super balanced. [​IMG]

    I happened to grab the same beer tonight, and I couldn't agree more. It's such an improvement over the non-VSO version, which in its own right was not a bad beer by any measure.

    For anyone coming to the Gene Jacket party, we're going to have an in-person holiday deal going with 2021 vintages that we still have in stock. Deth's Tar, Ryeway, Dark Mode, Maple Jacket, Deth's Tar 19.2 for $90 pre-tax (normally add up to $137).

    I really enjoyed that beer last Spring. Tonight I enjoyed Bean Gene or the first time ever, and the new batch of Mean Gene which has always been one of my favorite Revolution prior releases.

    I really enjoyed the dark roast coffee flavor in the BG, didn't get much of the base and the bourbon sat back and let the coffee run with the lead.

    The Mean Gene was incredible, really loved the play between the excellent base Eugene and the bourbon / barrel. For some reason, this beer felt much stronger ABV wise, despite the fact it shares the same abv (10.3%). Would really love to see Mean Gene rolled out in a future DW release.

    Nice crowd tonight, may return next week to try a few more. Grabbed the 2021 beer package as well, I've always had good experiences with refrigerated Rev DW cans even after a 3-4 years on them.

    Finally got around to picking up my VSODM, Ryeway, and SJ cans yesterday on my way to the Metro. That VSODM is great after it warms up (had a slight green apple tartness when cold, but that gave way to a nice barrel quality). Not a great idea to drink it on an empty stomach, feeling every bit of that 14.4%. It was too smooth and too balanced, it went down too quickly!

    No online release? Didn’t see anything mentioned on the Facebook post on it so I wondered.

    Edit-disregard I see a separate post on it now.
