    We (The Beermongers) will be putting this beer on the shelf on January 16th. Due to the need for this beer to be consumed fresh, we will not be imposing any bottle limits so as to move the beer as green and dank as possible. We encourage you to drink now and not hoard. Cheers!

    I checked a couple places last night and they looked at me cross eyed. Stone said it would start hitting shevles yesterday, so I am guessing today or tomorrow hopefully.

    I'm leaving tomorrow night for the weekend in Washington DC, sure hope this doesn't show up and sell out while I'm gone.

    is this beer anywhere close to ruination 10th anniversary?
     
  24. bifrost17

    bifrost17 Dec 16, 2011 Washington

    Having had multiple bottles of both beers I'd have to say Ruination 10 is superior. Enjoy by is really awesome, but not as good as Ruination 10. I still don't understand how Stone hit it out of the park with Ruination 10 and Enjoy by, but failed miserably with that lemon pinesol booze IPA the tried to call 16th anniversary.

    Agree w/10 hope to snag an Enjoy By soon. A little harsh on the 16th though. I agree it didn't compare to the 10 but lemon pinesol? I didn't think it was that bad.

    Any word on how rare uncommon this is? So far I know Full Throttle has/had it; I checked a couple WFM yesterday to no avail.

    Just wondering if this is one of those beers I'll need to try to alter my schedule for, or if I can expect it to be available for at least a few days...

    Watching my twitter feed anxiously today, between meetings.

    If we have it at Whole Foods today then I think you should be fine man, I don't think we'll see cases flying out the doors. Between the three WFM metro stores you should be able to get your hands on some.
     
  28. bifrost17

    bifrost17 Dec 16, 2011 Washington

    Yeah, I dunno, I guess taste is subjective. I know a lot of people couldn't stand 16th, and you can count me among them. I just really didn't like the artificial lemon flavor in it, I found it disgusting.

    Well, for the record, it wasn't artificial lemon flavor. It was lemon verbena, a South American flowering shrub.
    Beyond that, to each his own. There have been better DIPAs and there have been worse.

    Hey man! Stop trying to make me look dumb on the internet!!! Remember what I said about you getting some Enjoy By at Whole Foods?!?! I'm gonna make sure that doesn't happen now!!!! ;)

    You've gotta learn to compartmentalize these things.*

    * The only reason I knew it was lemon verbena was because when I drank mine I saw that on the bottle and said to myself, what the fuck is that? and looked it up.

    Just picked one up right now at my closest beer spot (2 blocks away) and drinking it tonight. Although, i have to rant a little bit because i intended to buy a 2, and this place had "a strict 1 bottle limit". WTF?! isnt the intent to drink these sooner rather than later? Why a bottle limit? ( Dude said it was because they only had a couple cases) Im not hoarding them nor was i asking for a crazy amount of bottles. Now I have to drive out of my way to go grab another bottle for the weekend.

    Thanks for listening, haha :)

    I'm hearing that distro for this version is/was pretty limited, at least to the NW. It's just hearsay at this point, but that could explain the bottle limits.

    My wife is up in PDX today, so I've got her on the lookout for a bottle or 2.

    Stopped at 99 Bottles during my lunch break. $6.99, didn't see anything about a limit, but I only got one. Also snagged Logsdon's Cerasus.

    WFM Westlake has four cases on the floor, $6.99/bottle. No apparent limits.

    They have a bottle limit. They alway have limits on stuff, half the time it's not even hard to get & they have a limit.

    I was over there last night looking for it and don't recall seeing anything by Stone. Thought that was odd.

    They had lots of 6-packs, but no bombers.
