    3 Floyds just released their collaboration with Surly at the brewery for $15 a bottle (750 ml). Limit two per person. See description below.

    "This collaboration beer between Surly and Three Floyds can best be described as an Imperial Brett IPA fermented with the unique strain of yeast Brettanomyces Lambicus. This yeast creates earthy barnyard notes along with pineapple-cherry pie aromas and flavors. Of course with the "IPA" style it's hopped heavily. Simcoe and Chinook are the culprits for the "Cat peed on the Christmas tree" aroma."

    Love the description, I'm defiantly going to get a pair, but that price. Maybe I can see it because its imperial and utilizes brett but I'm becoming a poor man and at some point am going to have to stop or start driving a taxi on weekends.

    Welp, I'm out-priced on this one, fellas. Sounds good, but not for $15.

    It was on draft only before (I know it was at the Northdown Lions, Tiger, and Bears event last month). This is the first time for bottles.

    Odds that it will still be there Friday morning?

    I'll grab one next time I'm there. If it's gone by then, oh well. Doesn't sound like one to rush out for.

    This exactly. For all we know, they could have secretly peed (not so secretly since it's in the name) in the bottles and are laughing in the background as we pay our $15 per...

    It's not a sour, it's an IPA with Brett.

    Just had it last night on tap at the Surly Taproom in B.P. MN. Damn tasty stuff!

    Totally agree. Had the 2023m2 today for the first time and was very disappointed. No hint of sour at all. Glad I only had a small sample size.

    Off thread topic but besides it not even being mildly or soft sour, it's simply not very good. What kind of beer is that and what the hell were they going for? Grassy hops in a zero flavored germanish malt?

    I didn't even bother trying it because New Belgium was involved. I know they're popular, but I think they suck.
