I don't think we get bottles of Bois with the membership, just the chance to buy allocations.
Are you Hoarders? If so then it's the French Oak. Otherwise nothing.
i wont be
i get the impression that most people will not be maxing out
For me, maxing out on the Bois allocations will depend how they taste on May 9.
I'm pretty excited about the allocations this time. I know I personally plan to buy at least half of the 863 bottles of Smoking Wood available!
I think their email was a little misleading. It's not actually "no limit". They have 100 cases left from 2012. They're offering those for sale until they're gone (... or they'll probably go back in the cellar if they don't sell out). I would seriously buy a few of these if it weren't for the fact that all the Bois variants are being offered as well.
I thought it was funny too, sort of last on the list with "if you're not broke enough after the above..."
I'm really excited about these although pricy, this series of beers may be the best from the bruery. One of the best ba stong ales that hits big distro for sure. Just wish it was 10-15 bucks cheaper haha
Will Preservation get the Bourbon version or one of the others not going into distro?
Yeah, I will either buy zero or one brandy barrel variant. I like the beer but it's darn expensive and I still have Coton and Cuir bottles to get through.
Thank you. I am Hoarders. I only wrote "Bois(2)" in my checklist of what membership price got us and being away from home can't get to my more detailed listing of what we receive.
The magic of a Google search:
Bourbon, the others are RS and HS exclusives.
You won't have to wait that long. Bottles of Bois go on sale tomorrow. From a hoarder's e-mail on Friday:
Important Note: The Bourbon Barrel Aged version of Bois will see nationwide distribution and we will release it locally on May 1st at our Tasting Room. You may purchase this beer online as a convenience for those who live out of town and would like their beer shipped, or for those who prefer ordering everything at once. However, on-line purchases will not be ready to pick up until sometime after 5/17. If you would like bottles of Bourbon Barrel Aged Bois before then, please visit our Tasting Room beginning 5/1 where you can purchase bottles in person - your Society discount will still apply.
The new allocation I'm drooling in advance over is the Melange 8 with the Geisha coffee blend. Ingrediients sound great and there's always the bonus of getting hit with a depressant and a stimulant at the same time...
Matt said that they'll be serving flights of all 4 variants at the tasting room on (tentatively) May 9.
From the Bruery's twitter today, that doesnt sound right...
Wow, that would really suck. The Reserve Society sign-up page still says Grey Monday* *= Exclusive (Hoarders, Reserve, and Preservation Society Members Only)
Subject to change of course, but I hope we don't get screwed again
I'm 99.9% certain GM will go to RS as well, probably 1 or 2 bottle limit with 2 or 4 to HS. Although I don't want to make excuses for them, I'm guessing not all the staff has laser-like focus on the in's and out's of all the differences between HS and RS. Sort of like going to the car dealership and the *salesperson* confusing the car he's pointing to (with hood open) having a V6 when the engine is an I4. He/They should know better but...
I would imagine that at least knowing the different tiers of their memberships societies should be the first thing they learn. Don't want to promise one something that wont be delivered on.
Disappointing if GM ends up being HS only, and disappointing that whoever is tweeting replies to questions like that is either misinformed about HS/RS, or is misinformed about tweeting statements like that without a more detailed, official explanation.
Grey Monday isn't just for Hoarders, it'll be an exclusive for Reserve Society and Hoarders Society. We have a new (and great) social media manager, but she's still learning all of the intricacies our madness around here.
*puts pitchfork away*
Lucky for her, everyone on BA tends to be exceedingly level-headed and rational about these sorts of things.
Seriously, were we not so benevolent, she could face the horrors of angry posts made about her on some website she doesn't care about.
Any speculation on what the next allocations will be?
Hoping for the blueberry sour.
It's bottled. I have no clue if it is ready.
i heard the english barleywine and the same beer with coffee added is part of the next allocation
I'm going to be broke and have diabetes by the end of the year! But it will be a great year
Here's to a sour next!
After sampling sour in the rye with peaches this past weekend, that blueberry sour is sounding awefully delicious
Possibly an 8% BA Stout called Ebony & Oak? Also, I'm guessing this is probably going to be of the Mystery Beers, right?
i have a feeling that will not be the mystery beer but i could be wrong
From this article (http://thefullpint.com/beer-news/help-the-bruery-design-ebony-oak-label/)
"The Bruery has a brand new beer being released in early July 2013.."
Hopefully june will be tart of darkness.
Is the new beer Beauregarde? The Blueberry Sour Blonde?
Not a mystery beer. Pretty sure it's going to be a Preservation Series release, and that Q2 for Preservation Society will be:
-- Saison Tonellerie
-- Bois (bourbon)
-- Ebony & Oak
I doubt it'd be a Preservation Series, since the label specifications doesn't say anything about that. I mostly just assumed it was a mystery beer because that's the only place it can really be slotted in their list of anticipated releases. But looking at last year's release list, it looks like there were quite a few that they hadn't mentioned. it's probably just a new beer that they didn't put down for one reason or another.
A TBD barrel-aged stout was mentioned earlier by a Bruery employee (maybe Matt) that it would be part of the Q2 package. I was just making a guess.
I was thinking the same thing, I doubt he was referring to a different unnamed BA stout.
Surprised no one had posted anything yet about the facebook post earlier. These are a few of the beers I was looking forward to the most this year.
The next RS Sale is June 4-28 with pickups available starting 7/1. That means get ready to order Sour in the Rye with Kumquats, ($20, 6 pp), Beaugarde, our blueberry sour ($20, 5pp), Mash & Grind, our barrel aged barleywine with Portola coffee ($20, 2pp) and Mash, our barrel aged barleywine ($20, 2pp).
Has the blueberry sour or either of the barleywines made an appearance at any of the events yet or are these completely new to everyone?
i think they are all completely new
It seems like just last month people were complaining about a lack of allocations...
