    How’s your reading comprehension? Not good fam, bet.

    The guy doesn’t want to wait in line and LeroyBrown based his advice off of that.

    I'm not sure if I'm recalling things incorrectly but I thought once upon a time one of the goals behind BBT was to have an unadulterate BA stout available on-site at all times. Obviously that's not been possible but am I remembering something wrong or confusing that with something else?

    That wine-style vintage dating makes shit so confusing since most brewers don't do that. Funny that one of my other favorite breweries, Kane, does that though.

    I’m going to disagree with my buddy @leroybrown10 slightly here.

    If you’re not wanting to stand in line for the Sara saison collab, then I would get there between 4pm & 5pm each day. By then those that got there early and got bottles will have had 3-4 hours to drink 15% stouts and be hitting a wall and ready to leave. You should be able to stroll in, get your to go bottles, and enjoy BBT3 and CoExpression Kriek on-site and it not be as packed and more chill.

    Could visit Cuginos/Narrow Gauge for lunch and a few pours. Hang at Perennial or 2nd shift where the crowd should be much more chill from noon until then. Good chance Perennial will have some great onsite bottles that Friday as well if you wanted to start there (last year had 2017 Maman I remember for sure).

    Just my .02

    Same here! @coryking got me super excited reading the blog post, lol. Hopefully the wife and I come home with a few bottles to enjoy.

    Also super excited for CoEx Kriek on-site. It’s going to be a hell of a weekend!

    After I placed my order for BBT I received an email stating this:

    Thank you for your order at Side Project Brewing. We will be in contact shortly regarding the services you have ordered. Your order confirmation is below.

    Should I be expecting a follow up email or something else? I haven’t heard from them since.

    No other emails/communications have been sent. I think that’s just part of the order confirmation emails that squarespace (or whoever they use) generates. Have the same exact same wording from other breweries/shops

    You’ll just have to show up at your assigned location on the day you purchased for with your ID and you’re all set. Your name will be on a list.

    "The lively, mature, Brettanomyces-forward hybrid was blended with one of our best barrel-aged Saisons - Oude Fermier...Sunsets is one of my favorite Saisons we have ever produced."
    What part of those 2 statements sounds like a cruel joke?

    I’m guessing coexpressionalism Kriek will be another “surprise” even though it’s in the blog post.

    We have no idea the size of the batch, how many are being allocated to go each day, etc.

    However, I would be shocked if you were there 15 mins before open and didn’t get a bottle to go.

    So the "extra" bottle to go won't be reserved for those that got a ticket for BBT then? For some reason I thought if you had a ticket you were guaranteed the option to buy the surprise bottle. I have to work on Friday and was going to the brewery after work to get my BBT and to try whatever is on draft, but I guess I won't be getting the extra at 4pm. Oh well!

    Correct, not reserved. Assumed they will allocate an amount for each day and when it’s gone then it’s gone.

    I’m curious to see if it sells out each day and if so, how quickly. The collab with De Garde lasted a couple weeks to go. With it not being a stout, I could see it not being an instant sellout kind of deal.

    Thanks for the input guys. I think we're going to show up later on Friday, slightly before open on Saturday and head straight to the bar, and get there early on Sunday for Sunset bottles if we can't grab any on Friday or Saturday.

    sounds like you’re thinking of TG’s Term-Oil...BBT was originally a draft-only base BA stout for the Maplewood coffee crawl. then it was used as the name for the 2017 to-go no adjunct BA stout release (Thanksgiving 2017). the only “goal” that was made clear at that time was that they were going to release a no adjunct BA stout every year during Thanksgiving weekend. i don’t recall any statements about having a BA stout available on-site at all times. i will say though that between various Vibes drafts, on-site Derivations and BA barleywines, and Längst they’ve done a pretty swell job of having a stronger option available at all times.

    Just FYI, they do have rights in the Cellar parking lot for consumption so it is illegal to have any open containers. I would also highly advise against bringing anything inside since they are a business trying to sell their own products and it will be packed already.

    they don't discourage sharing, but being busy they will probably charge you a corking fee. Call ahead and ask to get the details. i've definitely shared inside the cellar before.

    Out of towner so sorry for any mistakes.

    I wasn't sure how the lines outside worked, if sharing was allowed or not. I should have asked in a different way. (Was bringing stuff just in case)

    Wasn't going to bring or drink anything from outside inside the cellar.

    Was just trying to see if anyone wanted to go in in a bottle on site with me.

    Sorry for any confusion. I've only been to the cellar once for the anniversary week while I was in town.

    If they aren't licensed for BYOB, (that is, if required in MO), it would be unwise to turn around and charge corkage, especially since they invoice for taxes now.

    you can share in the brewery parking lot until open. you cannot share outside the cellar.
