    Just got word that this beast is stateside and ready for pickup. Interesting note: my email says they ended up going with blueberry instead of strawberry as previously noted.

    Drive the goat, eh? I hope no one misinterprets what they mean by "drive". :wink:

    My inner 8-year-old is still fixated on the "fahrt" part

    Hmm. Fahrt is "journey" or "trip," not ride. Sounds like Bruery's "artistic license" is channeling an 8-year-old too.

    Yeah, but Bruery is trying to call it "ride," there's a German word for that -- but it doesn't sound juvenile in English, so why use it? :rolling_eyes:

    Usually not a huge fan of blueberries in beer , but since I ordered this in the initial collab I am stuck with it regardless and will give it a try! Love that it will force me (OH NOES!!) to head back down to Richmond for a weekend... and while I am there I may HAVE to go visit some of the other local spots :sunglasses:
