    Extreme Beer Fest had a 1/2 keg of 1996 at it...It was quite sublime. If I could get my f-ing old Iphone to power up, I would show you all the pic of the keg (I worked that fest so I took tons doing inventory)

    Had a bunch up here in the bay but at my local BevMo we just ran out. Surprised you didn't get in Long Beach. If I can find another 4 pack I'm heading down to LA in February if you want to do an IP trade

    Went on a tour last week. Apparently, it is still on for late Jan.

    FYI: during the tour, while you are in the mashing room, there is a bottle in the room (as of 12/29/12) with tinted glass that you can see. Not much but me and my lady excited.

    According to my beer guy he's getting some on Friday. Don't know how legit it is, but he said its being distributed in California at least in the next week.

    Are you talking about the fest 2 years ago? I thought that was a 94 bigfoot. I don't remember one last year.

    There was no vintage Bigfoot last year. Two years ago they brought a keg of 96 Bigfoot, and the year before SN sent their last keg from 1994.

    Hello I heard from a local store that it will hit the shelfs soon and be very limited. Just curious about the different barrels does that mean there will be different releases depending on which type of barrel it was aged in ?

    Johnnyramirez Initiate (0) Nov 17, 2012 California

    If I recall correctly, I heard it's all gonna be mixed into 1 final blend. So there should only be 1 release, but that could've changed

    No, it was released just without a dated crown (see previous page of this thread for pictures).

    However many 750s you can make with 100bbl.

    Just 4. I figure that will do me good for a while.
