    I really didn't think it was as awful as everyone makes it out to be

    Not sure if trolling... but having Tired Hands, Troegs, Weyerbacher, Pizza Boy, and distro for Russian River, Cigar City, etc isn't too bad

    Nah, no trolling... just trying to use IL vs PA distro as humor.
    In my opinion, FFF Floyd D'Rue was that bad and turned me away from wanting to try their Rue D'Floyd.

    The Floyd D'Rue was pretty unimpressive, but if the FFF version of RdF is anywhere near as good as the Bruery version, you should put it back on your want list.

    The FFF version of Rue D'Floyd was definitely worth the money. Haven't tried the Floyd D'Rue yet

    I bought a bottle of Floyd D'Rue on Thursday 7/24 from FFF. This isn't the infected stuff, is it?

    Nope, supposedly only the Bruery versions.

    I'm kind of surprised it hasn't hit distro since it seems they can't get rid of it.

    Since they bottled Cimmerian Sabertooth Berzerker, does this mean it'll likely hit distro? Al, any insider knowledge on this?

    I've had both Floyd d'Rue and Rue d'Floyd from FFF. Floyd was okay, but not worth the price. Rue, on the other hand was phenomenal and almost actually worth the price.

    Anyone know if they are going to distro Deesko this time around? Kinda like they did for Live a Rich Life this year. I saw a couple of stores way out just post it to Beermenus...

    They did not have it.

    Having said that, it is hitting Chicago distro today. All of the normal players should have it.

    I haven't tried 3 Floyds' Floyd D'Rue yet, but their Rue D'Floyd is spectacular. A little too fizzy to start, but after about ten minutes, it's really great. I recently traded one of mine to someone for a BT and a Huna (I threw in a local extra to help even out the $4$ a little), so I'd say it was definitely worth the price.

    I bet it tastes like the brewery burned down and the flavor faded after an hour and you won't be able to find it unless you live in Indiana where it's everywhere and where can I find it I'm going to be in town for Christmas the 24th-26th can I just call and ask if they have it how long is the wait for it and everyone who works there is an asshole except that one time that one guy went and they were super nice.

    Does that cover everything?

    Pretty epic run on sentence. Somebody post if this thing is any good. I thought the last sour was so - so. Not worth the drive

    @Scalawags No. As in he didn't bother to read 5 posts above his where it was already posted that this was released today.

    I think it's important to mention this is a sour porter. Probably a mistake they're trying to salvage.. :slight_smile:

    Yup. Sour Porter with sour cherries. That's how it's listed on the board.

    Per the FB

    Black Flame is now available in bomber bottles. $14 per bottle with a limit of 4 per person.

    The Black Flame- (La Flama Negro) It burns brights for those who care to notice. It takes a true beer lover to stray from the norm and experience real flavor. If you can’t handle the black flame, you can’t handle adventure. Made in conjunction with Mikkeller.

    Someone might say the price is reflective of being a Mikkeller collab :wink:
