Yes, not really, no

These are great resources to keep current with what they are doing.
To answer your questions in a general sense, the do not do just limited releases, they do sell bottles from time to time at the brewery outside of these limited releases, and there is not a regular year round brew at this time. Some day, if all those damn people would stop showing up, there might be a regular year round brew.
Since the last reply was brief, let me be of additional help.
SP beers are all barrel aged and thus limited in production. Many of their sought after beers (Tete, Derivation, etc) are released and to go bottles sell out that day, although on site bottles may be available for consumption at the brewery or Cellar some time after. There are often (but not always) bottles of some SP need to go either at the brewery or the Cellar. They do not have year round beers, but some of the beers that spend less time I'm wood (Foedre, Grisette, Bier de Pays) are frequently available. Although you didn't ask, they are not distributed although the Wine and Cheese Place does sell some limited edition releases.
Hope this helps
Technically they're all limited edition since they're not constantly produced. At least IMO.
Thanks C. I decided not to ask distro since I kinda figured there wouldn't be or be very limited.
Great info. Hopefully I can trade for a few bottles in the future.
La Fosse going on site Saturday
My teeth and gut always regret that one.
Sure hope there's a to-go release of it soon
Gonna be at side project at 307pm (according to gps) if any locals want to split a bottle or two! Like langst or jammy or something else fun!
La Fosse blend 2, release 2/26 at noon
What's the limit?
Some people got to go through twice but it's all gone now
Love these Sunday releases. Makes it so much easier to figure out logistics of getting there.
Question to anyone out there that may know...are there not going to be any more Derivation releases at the brewery? Cory hasn't done that in a really long time to my knowledge. Seems like the only way to get those is thru the Wine and Cheese Place anymore?
Drink Derivation at the cellar when it is released?
In all seriousness, I don't think Cory is going to release a Derivation in a mass fashion any time soon. He wants people to enjoy his beer, not turn it for massive profit, and too many people see the beer with dollar signs in their eyes, and not as a hella good beer.
Yes, I drink it at the Cellar. But I also have family in Kansas City that I'd love to be able to share a special bottle with over the holidays. I've never once sold any beer I've bought for a profit. And there are tons of people out there like me that aren't trying to swap it for a profit.
If I remember correctly, there was a tweet or something in late Summer last year saying he just filled more Derivation barrels than 1-6 had total.
If there is ever a pre-announced Derivation release I suspect the level of muling, butthurt, and general douchebaggery that will occur would rival anything the world has ever seen. Not saying I wouldn't love some bottles though...
I doubt it will ever see a public release again. Perhaps TWCP again but never public. I know Paul procures barrels from their store picks for Cory on occasion and that's why he releases some of it there.
@coryking Any plans for the Coffee Crawl this year?
Anabasis on site starting today...
Good lord... so much want, bucket list beer for sure. Obviously a long shot, but I hope this pops back up when I come out there in May.
"This Saturday, at noon at the Brewery, we release our barrel-fermented Flanders Red Ale, Open Spaces..."
I'm more excited for this than any beer SP has ever done.
Flanders Red Ale? Good for you.
Not at all.
I am also excited for this one. The intrigue was peaked, and my wallet cringed at the words "46 months".
Ah I wasn't sure. I love the style and am eager to try SP's interpretation of it. You don't see a ton of new Flanders type offerings out there (or at least good ones that is)
Kinda sad I'll miss this release.
Did I hear right that Pulling Nails 6 is going for $35 out of the Cellar to go?
Man, I love Cory's beers and he's a heck of a nice guy, but the fact that he's starting to charge crazy prices and at the same time he shows such contempt for secondary sellers is really too much. PN5 was $33 and that was just a few months ago. I can't believe that the cost went up that much. I guess that's why it's still sitting there.
Wrong. Pulling Nails blend 5 was $35. I personally believe it's still sitting there like many of the other releases lately because he has been able to increase production (which has been awesome), not so much the price. Hundreds of people gladly bought 4 at the release.
Yeah, the line for PN6 was quite long, the limit was 4pp, and most people I saw walking away bought 4 bottles. They made a lot of PN6. Keep in mind that Cory has no flagship beer that is 50% of production that pays the bills for his experimentation. He doesn't get paid for months or years on all those barrels he fills.
Well I guess I got a deal then since I paid $33 at the cellar, to go.
IIRC, PN5 was $30, and PN6 was $35. Don't think anyone cares about that as it doesn't add anything to the conversation, so I will say this...
$30 for a bottle of beer that someone has been working on for 4 years is a pretty damn good deal in my opinion.
Pulling Nails blend 5 and 6 were both $35. You can check the Cellar's twitter for a picture of the board when PN5 went on sale for reference.
Price Point announced for Saturday yet? Debating hiking down from Chicago.
The instagram posts always seem to contain more information. $30 for Open Spaces.
