Care to back up that statistic? Or were you just trolling?
Correct. Terra Incognita will be brewed by Sierra Nevada next year.
A BIG Thank You to Sierra Nevada Brewing. They just continue to do 'good things' over and over!
That would rule. So would an Imperial Pilsner or a fruit beer!
Unsuccessful Collaborations: Brux, Escoffier, Class of '88 Barleywine, and best of all Brett Beer, which was drainpour worthy.
Dayum! Please please please let Allagash and Russian River put bugs in it and let Victory do a pilsner.
I'm going to buy this no matter how.
I liked the BRUX along with the vast majority of raters. the other three are rated pretty high too. I guess your drain gets a lot of beer.
These arrangements can go a lot of different ways. In our experience, the brewery who is making the beer (in this case, us) will usually supply the raw materials/ingredients, glass, label graphics, art design and distribution which makes each beer, regardless of the fact that is a collaboration, a Sierra Nevada product. (the beer has to be "from" one brewery only for legal reasons.) By law, the proceeds will then be 100% ours.
What we do with the proceeds is what makes each of these different. In the past, for some collabs (30th anniversary beers) we've donated all or much of our collaborative proceeds to charities, or other good causes... The plan in this case, is to donate a portion of proceeds to brewers guilds for the support of the greater craft beer community, and also to hop and malt research.
Hope this helps,
And this is 99% of all collaborations? Looks like maybe 1%.
I actually took statistical analysis of every collaboration beer that I have ever consumed and determined my average score of those beers to be 2.87. One out of the 13 collaboration beers I tried I would consume again therefore the correct garbage percentage would actually be 92.3077%
Wrong. A better statement by you would have been, "of the collaborations I have tried, 92.3077% were garbage."
That's like owning 3 cars in your lifetime (a Kia, a Ford, and a Yugo), and having bad experiences with all, and stating "100% of automobiles are garbage".
P.S. So, what was the one beer that wasn't garbage?
I think what I have learned from this is that you haven't enjoyed most of collaboration beers you have tried.
That's about all you can learn from a "Had Ticker" Has ample time to thread crap and can't be bothered to write an actual review.
That looks like a pretty good top 10-11 breweries in the us
Wish they could have found a place for Founder's in there, guess they didn't want to do more than one from MI.
Either way I can't wait for this!
Why do you think it wasn't Founders that declined an offer?
That very well could have happened. Either way, I was just saying I thought that would have been a good one.
I am excited like a kid on Christmas Eve. This is honestly the best beer-related news I've read in a while. I am so pumped for this. I may have to buy multiple sampler packs which I've never done before.
Lets not over think or over hype this too much ok ?
Whoops way too late
Of course this is going to be killer
Sign me UP !!!
Out of that crew I tried Brux and definitely was no drain pour for me. It has been cellered for about 6-8 months and was amazing
beer supergroup, im excited!
Awesome! Except ninkasi. Ninkasi blows hard!
http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/14400/37966 Ya, nothing like a 90 point blow. LOL (at you)
Brux was solid, Escoffier was delicious (just opened another can and it is even better).
Some companies I really look forward trying something from. They are always doing cool stuff!
They should make it a case, 12 bottles are collaboration with Sierra and the other 12 are the best releases from each of the breweries. Pliny, Zombie Dust, Jai Alai, Sculpin, Moon Man, etc. Or maybe just their freshest IPA's!
Actually I don't think it is 50/50. As far as I know, usually the brewery hwo actually brews it, gets all the profits.
i enjoyed these all. most people did.
At 3.33, I wouldnt say many people enjoyed Brett Beer. I enjoy a beer at 3.75 and above. Anything below 3.75 I would never drink again.
So long as they don't do 12 IPA's, I might be on board with this.
See Bill's response above. You are correct.
Wonder how many stouts will be in the 12 packs. I don't want just Ipas and wheat beers. Hope the Oskar collab is atleast a stout. Some Tenfidy and Nawhal mix sounds good to me.
I hope they make a bomber per month and then a mixer 12 pack come the end of the year. Bottling this might be difficult, but I think this would allow the bomber collectors to get their fill and also do a mixer 12 pack would be awesome!
I wouldn't mind a 12-pack of say 4 varieties, 3 of each, 3x a year. Of course, I'd probably prefer all 12 be different. But, 4 different beers in a 12-pack isn't too shabby.
While I look forward to trying these brews, it seems that they're large (by craft beer standards) breweries, with already pretty decent availability. I would like to have them, since SN is celebrating their Eastward migration, to pick one small brewery from each of 12 states on the route from Chico to Asheville. Shine the light on the little guys.
I'll be down for this.
Just hope it's not overloaded with wheats and sours.
