    Family, prior commitments? No such thing when rare beers are involved

    My wife and I came from the Bluegrass last year with a friend for the BBT. She's working this year, but I've got other friends.

    At least if you purchase BBT online, you can just pick it up. I hate chasing BCBS variants.

    I did a Jewel BCBS release last year then headed to St Louis. Wasn't that bad of a trip. Now I just need this not to sell out in 3 seconds and I'll do it all over again. Depending on WI's BCBS allocation I might be able to stay warm and sleep in. That'd be a miracle.

    BBT was thanksgiving weekend last year and they said it always will be.

    Not sure why it’s a surprise.

    Because lots and lots of people don't like to read or can't read. Either way...

    Any guess on if or what the silent release will be during the BBT weekend?

    Did they say there would be a silent release? Or just that there would be “surprises”? I assumed it was just on-site bottles that they were referencing?

    Anabasis bottles maybe? Considering the statement in the post saying 1 Imperial Stout/Barleywine per person.

    The statement was referring to onsite bottles. They are limiting 1 bottle pp for on site consumption due to the ABV. Not sure where people are getting a special/surprise bottle. Maybe BA CSV will be released like last year. I would be ecstatic with a bottle of BBT. Anything else is icing on the cake. I really enjoyed the release last year. Probably my favorite release I attended. Really chill, great onsite options and BA CSV was a pleasant surprise. GL everyone.
    Cheers!

    My phone was on vibrate, so my fault, but I was checking every so often, and obviously checked a couple minutes too late.

    Not trying to be an ass but why is that a joke? BBT is rated extremely high and everyone knew it wasn’t going to last 30+ minutes like last year. This is definitely what I anticipated.

    I’m betting this was a much smaller batch this year too.

    Thankfully wife and I both got a bottle. Pumped to come to STL Black Friday!

    They said it was their largest stout release on one of the twitter comments.

    At least I'll get to try some on-site. Congrats to everyone who got a bottle!

    Anyways, anyone want to share during BBT release weekend?

    Flying in from Cali with Mexican Medianoche, 18mo and Coconut and looking to try a Maman if someone wants to open one with me and the Medianoches. Maman is one of my personal whalez and it would be killer to drink one while in town.

    I appreciate it man! No worries if things don't work out. Still some delicious beers to be had that weekend on-site to be sure.

    I can reach out later when the time is closer to figure it out.

    Talked to @coryking today and he said bottle count was slightly lower due to the fact that the beer spent more time in the barrel so yield was less. They did less draft to try and offset some of this to keep bottle counts fairly similiar.

    thanks! i was going to say that if anything it would be equal bottle count to blend 1, but i get the logic behind more barrel time yielding less for this batch. cheers!

    Were you asking about Floue Floue or BBT? Floue Floue was definitely a smaller batch- would guess about 250 people went through before it sold out?

    Dusty & i had been talking about both beers actually so kind of confusing. earlier we were talking BBT batch size and then floue crowd / batch size.

    I had my Twitter notifications set to text me, so I was out running errands with the wife, and refused to drive in case it happened on the road. It did, and I got one.

    Will people be lining up at The Cellar prior to opening (at 1PM) for the BBT release (to ensure getting a table or a spot at the bar)? Never been to a Side Project release so wondering what to expect.

    Yes, there will most likely be a line, but should be reasonable unless there is a silent release like last year.

    And given how those lines went last year (Saturday in particular was crazy and took forever to clear) I really doubt they’ll do a surprise silent release again
