    Man, I hope there is an octagon at the RS/HS initiation party so all this can be worked out. At least an arm wrestling tournament can be organized so we can see whose arguments are correct. Winner gets one of the losers taster tickets!!

    Anybody else notice the vintage date on Sour in the rye with Peaches. I'm stoked for this.

    The current one is nice, makes me imagine Griffon Brux is a Stone collaboration:
    Though this one is a favorite of mine too:

    Knowing The Bruery, they will end up making good on this. Before everyone starts bitching and moaning, (well, too late for that now), remember last year a piece of merch didn't work out so everyone got a bottle of Grey Monday.

    And besides that... It's just one beer. An undercarbed sour brown one. How many of you can honestly say that this is the beer that made you join RS?! Most of the people crying are the types that will order it the minute allocations start anyway. And, I can almost guarantee this years RS sour releases will be amazing. You can find other things to cry about.

    I hope the bruery gives you a discount on your membership for the reach around services you provide them. You could be the guy who answers their customer service line and exclaims "Give us your money and shut the hell up!"

    No, I paid the $695 plus tax. Sorry you're butt hurt about not getting more trade bait and sorry for trying to stay positive about a "situation" like this.

    Give the hoarders another chance to buy up any remaining bottles, the commoners can buy Old Richland.

    Oddly enough though: email says it will be $15.99 and it is $16.99 in the store :(

    Edit: the $16.99 should be the correct discount, but they should make sure to get it correct in their communication.

    So these two are in addition to the two we were allowed to buy last week?

    Their email a bit ago was awesome. To me, they take their customer service shit seriously and recognize, probably based on the debacle this thread has become, that the GB 'mess' was just that...unintentional, but something they are trying to remedy. I'm happy they made the bottles available to RS.

    I dont think so, I think it is 2 total, and those that didnt buy it last week still have time.

    I'm guessing a typo. My math may be fuzzy, but 15% of 19.99 = 2.9985. It SHOULD be $16.99.

    -Awesome, more for me ;)

    No, sorry if that wasn't clear. HS had a week where they could purchase their max of 2 bottles. Now RS is able to purchase their max of 1 bottle.

    Like usual, we'll have to screen the purchases to make sure there are no duplicate purchases. There's not going to be more than a few cases left over, so we are keeping a close eye on this one.

    Cheers,
    Matt

    "The Southern California craft brewery "The Bruery" brewed a flat sour brown ale called Griffon Bruxellois. This was accomplished using techniques also employed by The Flat Abbey, a craft brewery in San Diego."

    I have no interest in this beer, I didn't join the RS in hopes of getting a GB, but I might buy one and send it as an extra just because it caused such an uproar.

    So would anyone that has had it at a festival chime in here? I'm pretty curious, especially given all of the hullabaloo surrounding it as of late.

    It's been served multiple times in the Bruery Tasting room. It's a good beer, a lot of cherry and oak. I found it similar to The Wanderer, but slightly lighter. The bottles apparently are not carbonated well, as opposed to when it has been served on draft.
     
  38. mattolesh

    It's currently on tap at the tasting room for RS members only.

    There are a few ratings on RB for it.
