So a few weeks ago Don Sullivan (President of Southampton Publick House) was on a local morning radio show (WEHM) and I called in to ask about the annual Imperial Russian Stout release party. It actually lead into a pretty lengthy conversation about Phil and more importantly their new brewer Evan, but the basic answer was there would be no 2013 release party. He did say that the farmhouse series (c&c) will be back up in production for 2013 after having over a year of out of stock issues. He hinted at some soft releases of bottles over the course of the year and a giant party for 2014. I tried to contact the radio host for the audio from the interview but they did not have it backed up. I then sent a follow up e-mail to Don to confirm. I have to say im pretty let down that this wont be happening this year, it always turns out to be one of the best releases of the year. But all that being said I guess it is better off to give this new brew team time to come into their own and really fine tune their vision of the future Southampton Publick House beers.
