    Both Content Moderator & Fuzzy are gone now. Looking forward to Fuzzy b5 in 2022, hopefully more Content Moderator comes back a lot more quickly!

    i think this most recent blend of fuzzy is just great. more funky and stone fruit forward as opposed to sour and juicy.

    Shocked CM sold out in less than 24 hours. Really thought maybe they just packaged some yesterday and were putting up more today.

    Totally agree with this. It’s a great batch and really showcases the fruit more than the SP culture which can be really aggressive in the 375 fruited sours. I wish they didn’t overprice the magnums so much. I really wanted a Fuzzy mag, but I just couldn’t justify it. I might break down and buy a Raspe magnum if they have them available though.

    Fuzzy is the first beer I had on my bucket list. I’m cracking it tomorrow for my birthday. I got 3 - 375s and 750 when it initially released. I gave one away to my twin brother. Was contemplating if I should buy more after they dropped the limits, but was waiting until I drank one. Guess I’ll have to wait longer now.

    Hopefully the next batch of Fuzzy doesn’t gush like this one.

    Probably my favorite batch fresh but losing 1/3rd of the bottle upon opening was kind of lame.

    That's rough especially given that's it's a 375. Not many ounces to go around, be lost.

    Don’t get to drink as much SP as you guys or as much as I’d like, but from my experience the acidity has always ebbed and flowed. Had some “tough” solo 750s, but then 375 format has been a saving grace. From recent stuff I’ve had, regardless of format, it’s definitely been more tame and an enjoyable drinking experience.

    Yep, same here. All three of my 375s have sacrificed 1/4 of themselves. Fingers crossed for the 750.

    I also had several of my Fuzzy 375s gush upon opening. I thought it must have been me handling them a little rough on the drive home or something, but interesting to hear that others have experienced the same.

    Any word on when Side Project, or other St. Louis breweries for that matter, are opening to the public for indoor service?

    Based on what Cory was saying during his instagram live interview it could be a while for Side Project, especially since their brewery spaces is completely taken over right now by pickups.

    That being said, Perennial, Rockwell, 2nd Shift (this weekend), Brew Hub, Earthbound, Bluewood, and Narrow Gauge all have at least patios open now. Some are just serving cans and some haven't opened food back up yet but it's a start

    Edit: Forgot Schlafly and UCBC too

    As luck would have it, I'm driving through St Louis this weekend, so I grabbed that and a bottle of Montmorency.

    (From casually following this thread, it's easy to get the impression that getting SP beer is effectively impossible.) :-)

    Thoughts on Montmorency from those who have opened bottles?

    How long are you guys refrigerating them for?
    24 hours+ in the fridge and haven't had any issues with fuzzy gushing.

    We also had this issue of Fuzzy b4 gushing with the one we've opened. Figured our buddy just shook it up too much bringing it over.

    I’ve opened four Fuzzy b4 bottles so far, all gushed. One was opened basically at room temp after I got back from the long drive (figured it was all the bumps and shaking from the drive), but the other 3 were all from stored upright at 45F, 50% RH in dark storage. I only lost a bit of the first beer, but I was ready for the other 3!

    i’m pretty sure the first 375 i opened was fine and my brother opened a 750 back in May and it was fine. not sure if it’s certain bottles or what.
