    An SBA loan for a company partially owned by Heineken.. err Lagunitas? I think these are the things that Our President is trying to expose with this extended shutdown. No pity for Shorts here.

    Oh boy, I'm listening. Freedom of 78 is one of my favorite IPAs. Maybe I'll grab a sixer of unofficial when I can buy beer again in February!

    Not Unofficial is pretty close to tasting like it has fruit added without having any fruit actually added. I asked when it came around on tap last year what was in it, and
    they use Sorachi Ace, Citra, Mosaic, and Idaho 7 hops in Not Unofficial. If that gives an idea of what to expect.

    It says on the bottle brewed with mango and guava.

    Sipping a not unofficial noe and i have to say it is very simular to freedom of 78' . a little lighter in the body but still a solid beer

    I’d recommend it if ‘78 is a favorite. My bottles are dated 1/10 so come Feb. 1st I don’t feel like the hops will lose much of their edge.

    Looks like Short's Mart has bombers of Stache Bender in stock. I wonder if we will see it quietly hit distribution like Biurbon huma did last month.

    Here’s hoping Go Juice will be at Winter Beer Fest, sounds really good.

    Well, here it is folks: the end of an Era. Much like we bid farewell to Pandemonium to make room for Space Rock, we now say goodbye to the 'Rock to make way for a new flagship: Juicy Brut.

    I'm genuinely on the fence here, and I'm hoping for the best. I had Hibiscus Brut up at the pub a few months ago and it was fantastic. Ten Tickles I'm in the fence about (it was the lemon).

    At least according to the Beer Fest app, this will be there! Short's has always been my first stop at the WBF.

    NEW BEER UP!

    This is one sour I actually enjoy having more than one of. Tastes like a nice, tart raspberry covered in dark chocolate and finishes with a little kick in the tonsils.

    Had this on Saturday. Best sour I've had from shorts. I had the wine barrel aged version.

    Haven't had the wine barrel version, but I agree. Maybe it's because, for me, it's the least sourish sour they make.

    So for limited releases we've got two IPAs (both originally made for HopCat oddly enough), a DIPA, a Shandy, a sour, a Gose, and a golden fruit ale. Would've liked to trade out an IPA for maybe a Kolsch or pilsner but otherwise a pretty good mix. Very interested to try Internet Dating.

    Pretty pumped about Chief Hopper returning. Also Treefer Madness first time in bottles is great!

    Here's something interesting: if you look at the release schedule, Cat Grass is listed as being available in cans and kegs, but not bottles. Maybe we'll be seeing the pint cans only this year.

    So with the new additions to the release schedule, I emailed Short's to see if there was any word coming on new variety packs. This year they're supposed to shake them up and do some souped-up ones.

    They'll be announcing them on the website but they won't be coming regularly:

    Hopefully some old favorites make the variety packs. I'd love some Aorta Ale, Bludgeon yer Eye, Peaches and Cream, I could go on and on!

    Peaches would be great, I could see that one making it. The two I heard that were possible Evil Urges and Ectoplasmo.

    I am a big fan of the variety packs, but I noticed a lot of grocery stores have a hard time moving them, so I can understand why they'll be doing less this year.

    I wouldn't mind if they go back to 3 seasonal packs plus Hoppy Holidays for the foreseeable future

    Here's Batch 10000!

    [​IMG]

    Another High-octane milestone release, clocking in at 14.20%. Short's is going in for the Brut IPAs.

    Got this info from the Short's Report which did not include a specific release date.

    Did they mention the format? I'm assuming bombers but the release schedule only says bottles and kegs.

    My store had it today too...... 6-packs of bottles. I went looking for Woodmaster but didn't find it, so being disappointed, walked out with nothing. I'll have to check the date again for its release.

    Edit: The post #15 above says Woodmaster was to be released late January and early February. Has anyone seen it yet?

    Six pack Batch makes me happy. Also, Woodmaster is in Livonia. If it's out my way usually you should have it already.

    I should have asked at my store while I was there; it must be gone already. I have a couple other places to look.
