    Sweet... way to line up calendar! No work on Monday for me. I will also throw my hat in the ring to try and purchase all 14,000 bottles.

    Please don't tell my wife!

    It might be harder to get all 14000 bottles than I anticipated.

    I just wanted to apologize for being douchey earlier in this thread. Had a rough few days dealing with wisdom teeth removal. Again super sorry. I like everyone here and don't want to be the douchebag with the Morrissey avatar. Super stoked to try Pentagram though I can tell ya that much....Cheers!!!

    How does 14,000 bottles compare to darkness production (I'm trying to understand what availability will be like). Also, sorry if I missed it, but what is the price point on this one?

    Darkness '12 was closer 20k iirc. But a lot of that goes at the event. My fingers are crossed that I can get it some evening next week.

    Hopefully there will be a different stamp each run to distinguish the years from each other.

    Todd does describe the stamp as "PENTAGRAM 2013 wax stamp". Sounds like there will be a different one for each year.

    I was told the other night by the owner of a local liquor store that they'll start rolling out next week and some will have it on Monday, others won't get it until later in the week. He said he expects it by Thursday.

    I'm not naming the store because I'm trying to protect my supply, but because I don't want to put words in anyone's mouth without their permission.

    And let's try to spread the Pentagram love around as much as possible, not just into the hands of the few.

    Revenant Initiate (0) Aug 8, 2012 Minnesota

    Sorry but I had to laugh at this, especially the part about "Protect my Supply" which you haven't even bought yet. Don't worry BA peeps I will be reporting every sighting of Pentagram next week. Everyone who wants a bottle will get one, even after the hoarders are through "Protecting their supply!"

    A-ha...wisdom teeth removal. I guess that's not so bad. When I came back from the dentist, I was all like "I...Is this real life?...Four fingers...I can't see anything...*ROAR*...Is this gonna be forever?".

    Haha. Since I'm pretty new around these parts, I didn't want to come across like "I know when and where it's gonna be but I'm not telling!"

    It's 14,000 bottles. It will be everywhere. It will be on tap at many places. No need to panic and leave work at the first moment you see it posted on twitter, no need to run over old ladies or knock over pregnant women just to be the third person to buy at trendy store x because Podunk Liquor will have it. Let's just all take a breath and relax.

    So assuming complete distribution of the 14,000 bottles, 233 stores could be each given 5 cases. On that note, does anyone know the number of stores that carry Surly (that would get stuff like Smoke, Anniversary beers, etc? I would be willing to bet its under 233, but really have no idea. At any rate, the moral is that I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    For the folks who volunteer for tours, I believe they get a 4pack as they leave. I ass|u|me that dippers are offered the same-and only year rounds four packs, no seasonals.

    It depends. I got 2 four packs and a shirt when I dipped.
