    Wicked Weed is doing bottle service of this delightful beer at the Funkatorium right now.

    Awesome. According to their social media, there is a case limit too. I hope I can get some in a few weeks!

    If the cashier I talked to is to be believed, she said there is only 150 cases and they have sold 80 already. She said they might have leftovers tomorrow but were unsure.

    I was there today and there was still a ton of it. I am not too sure how long it will last, but it is available now.

    Was there last night, seemed to be plenty. I had a few glasses. It serves fairly tart for Wicked Weed, but that could be the Raspberries helping to push the tartness up. Like the Cherry Fram, this is fruit forward, which also brings me to the downer for me. The aroma was barn yard funk for sure, almost to the point of turning me off of the beer. I got over it by not sniffing as I drank it. My crazy nose. It tastes great, don't get me wrong. Just don't sniff it. For what that's worth.

    I purchased a case last night. Still looked to be plenty sitting on the shelves, but hey, Cerise Morte hung around on shelves a lot longer than it should have. It is still one of my top beers WW made this past year.

    Good to hear, I'll be in town Saturday, and was hoping to get a few.

    Hoping there will be some special stuff on tap for the Funkatoriums 2nd Birthday as well.

    Yes, there will be... I saw the beer list for the second anniversary yesterday, but between the beer consumed and my old mind I can't recall the list. Expect some old favorites to show.

    Still had it as of last night. Not sure how much. I only purchased two, not so much into hoarding anymore. But I had a glass on tap and it is fantastic. Pretty clearly the best WW sour I've had to date (probably had about a dozen).

    I think they 'sell out'...then re-stock the next day.

    Was there yesterday around opening till maybe 1:45-2pm, same time ??
     
  17. FATC1TY

    FATC1TY Champion (891) Feb 12, 2012 Georgia


    They had plenty that I assume.

    Bunch of loose bottles on the shelf. Maybe 4-6 cases unopened on the floor in the corner.

    They restock it periodically I think during the day or possibly put out x amount of bottles or cases a day.

    I had no issues getting any earlier in the day and people weren't buying much from the looks of it.

    I was at the bar. Front of it at the corner! Blur masters polo. Wife in some funky tights and a denim shirt!

    Shit- I hate missing other BAs.

    Nothing special, mostly NE-style IPAs that I can't get in SC, I even reached out to a couple of my regulars looking for shelf beers...no interest

    Ahh, yeah, I can understand that. WW makes distro in Boston (not the Morte stuff obviously), but at the price it demands, and WW only sending the 'less than stellar' beers up there, I can see it not trading so well. Also, MC made it to NY so, people wouldn't be thrilled to trade for that either.

    Best bet for a constant supply of NE style IPA's is to just get into homebrewing. It's far cheaper and you can get just as good if not a fresher product than any of those breweries anyways.

    Yup, was there talking with one of WW's Distro rep's. He had the GABF live feed up checking results on WW's offerings up there. Next time. Edit: WW grabbed a silver for their Lunatic Blonde.

    Anyone know if they still have Framboos Morte? Yes, yes, call them. They don't open until a couple hours from now and if they have it I'd like to be over there close to when they open, just to fit in the day's schedule better.

    I find their taplist online is usually a pretty good hint. If they put that it's available for bottle, it usually means they have it in the barrel room store.

    Not always, but generally I have noticed that, especially with these brewery only releases.

    To answer my own question, they had plenty! @FATC1TY didn't see it on tap, but also didn't look closely once I picked up bottles.
     
  28. FATC1TY

    FATC1TY Champion (891) Feb 12, 2012 Georgia


    Awesome! It's fantastic on draft. Lots of funk. Bottles had alot more fruit. It's better than Red Angel for sure.

    Had a previous batch on draft and I'd agree! Hope the bottles are just as good. Had the Omnipresence today before hitting up Bhramani and One World for the first time.

    FATC1TY Champion (891) Feb 12, 2012 Georgia


    The real winner of the "new" beers, is the Pomegranate Hibiscus wine barrel sour... Omnipresence wasn't bad, just plain.

    Agreed. I tried Pom Roselle later last night at my local store and thought it was quite good.

    I'll just jump in to reiterate what @treznor said, but the Funkatorium appeared to have plenty just sitting around in the gift shop for those interested. Not sure if they simply made more than the Angel series or the $20 price tag is scaring people away.

    Either way, great brew.

    FATC1TY Champion (891) Feb 12, 2012 Georgia

    I think it's the price. I also think that many ppl don't make it much past the main brew pub anyways so the mortes generally last longer due to that.

    Did a small raspberry tasting last night. Framboose Morte was everyone's fav over Bretta Rose and CS Raspberry Origins.

    Gonna put it up against Red Angel and Atrial Rubicite next.
