    I just posted an ISO for tickets in the breweriana forum, not sure if it's even allowed but check it out if you have extras for either day.

    Sounds like a bad bottle/closure, and you have my sincere apologies. I'm happy to either replace it from our archive, or with equal value from what we have available next time you're out. Sorry man.
    I suppose it's worth saying that truly wild beer is always unpredictable and unique, even on a bottle to bottle selection. So, not necessarily blaming the glass or cap, just that it seems like the likely culprit.

    Just popping in to say hello. No eloquent ramblings, but a big thanks for you all supporting us. We do always try to take care of everyone that that we can whether it be events or just a random beer. We fail sometimes, but we try.

    Pelican Pub & Brewery makes great beer and serves good food.

    All I've ever seen from Trevor and Linsey is an ever ending desire to make their customers happy. Over the past three years that has become increasingly hard as their popularity skyrocketed. From their tiny tasting room in town, to one bay of the warehouse, to two, the three. Now they're working on moving back to town. All this too do all they can to keep their customers happy. I think this method of ticket sales is great. It gives you a chance to pick up some beer when you get your tickets, then you get more at the part. Win-win. I applaud de Garde for thinking of the locals.

    i often tell people the story of when Linsey opened up the tasting room just for me and the girlfriend. tillamook was flooding and you guys were closed. you left a number on the door for the out-of-state beer crazies to call just incase they don't check weather forecasts and were stupid enough to drive through the storm. i called, and you guys were open within 15 minutes. super cool of you, and a testament to how you genuinely care more than you should about your customers.

    Wow that's awesome that you they opened up the tasting room for a couple of crazies :stuck_out_tongue:

    I was super impressed last time I was down there, even during the craze of tickets we got a nice comfortable spot, chatted with a ton of people who had made the trip out, and got to try some fantastic beer (The Peach, The Purple, The Lily, Apricot Bu, Passion Pom Bu... I would have been happy with any one of those bottles being on the list)

    Only thing I need to remember next time is to bring some antacid :stuck_out_tongue:

    Props to you, de Garde.

    Hoping to make it out one more time before the release party!

    On a related note, how often are magnums released? I lust after finally getting my hands on one of 'em :slight_smile:

    I think they should give you free Tums with every beer consumed on site. I was there a few weeks ago, great beers, but I was feeling it for the rest of the day. This is coming from a guy with a 41 month old "Lambic" on tap.

    Anyone hit the Petit celebration on Saturday? Thoughts on The Truffle? My clamgun was in the shop, and I didn't want to go out there unprepared.

    Yeah, this. I wasn't able to make it out for it either, but am driving down this weekend to hopefully snag any Petit leftovers (hopefully?). The Truffle sure sounds interesting.

    It is very Broken Trucky. Very subtle Truffle flavor, I would assume because they didn't want to pay $35,000 for the amount that would be needed to really stand out (which I am totally cool with, the subtle hint of it made the beer just...funky. loved it)

    I 100% agree and think this is a method prefered by many of their regulars. I was abke to get tickets fir a few of my long time trade partners who have been to multiple parties already. It really shouldn't have been to hard for out of towners to get tix if they had any kind of relationship with someone who frequents degarde, and my buddy couldnt be more stoked to have gotten tickets. I cant wait for this party, and believe the owners truly go out of tgere way to support their customers! Cheers to you guys!

    I'll second this - had some friends in Washington call some friends in Portland (who, as far as I know, had never been to the brewery), who were able to run out and grab us tickets for the Sunday event. I've never been, but am beyond excited!

    Unfortunately for us loners and worker bees that couldn't drive down to the land of cow poo and cheese we're struggling for tickies. If anyone has one for reelzies hit me up! I've been to almost every party and don't want to miss all of your beautiful faces. I'll snag you some Holy Mountain ;-)

    I'm getting excited about the de Garde anniversary party! I think I remember reading in here there are a couple local cab companies. Is it generally hard getting one after the party? We are staying at the Western Inn, I'm fine walking back but with a case of heavy beer I don't think its possible.

    I served grand blanc, saison melange, and saison melange no 3 at my wedding last weekend in NC and everybody loved the beer which I guess shouldnt be too big a surprise.

    pretty sure the western inn to degarde is a solid 5 mile walk, so with or without beer it may be a struggle lol.

    I would not recommend walking back. In fact, I would strongly recommend against it. I would rather fall asleep in the muddy grass outside the brewery and drive back to the hotel several hours later after sobering up.

    Hello @deGardebrewing,

    Back in July, you said that new batches of Bu Weisse were "minimum six months out".

    I've been keeping an eye on your chalkboard... Did I miss it? If not, do you have an estimate of when it might be available again?

  33. MorningDew72

    MorningDew72 Initiate (33) Aug 15, 2014 North Carolina

    haha. I really don't mind walking long distances unless it's pouring down rain. Although that big, flat open land would make it seem like you aren't covering any ground :grimacing:

    I just called up Pacific Taxi and sounds they said they normally just hang out at de Garde shuttling back and forth those days so it sounds like it should be pretty easy getting a ride. The guy sounded extremely nice (owner, not sure of the name).

    Definitely am not planning on driving. I want to enjoy as many fine beers as I wish without getting hammered and without having to worry about driving buzzed/drunk.

    See some of you there!

    Until Trevor shows up, how about some baseless speculation?

    The last time Petit Desay was bottled, both it and Bu Weisse were advertised as being the first batch out of some foeders/puncheons/other large vessels. Assuming those vessels were refilled around the same time, perhaps the recent release of Petit Desay bottles is a good omen and the Bu just took a little longer to be "ready" this time?
