Quoted from pinballjj:

someone i know works at the genessee brewery and gave me a case of these. very rich, chocolate and toffee , not an every night type beer for me so it will take a while to finish these off[quoted image]

actually looks interesting!

This one is pretty good .... (think I posted it before)

want to try that one, love most bba's I have had . saw it at the beer cave last night but was in cheap bastard mode so ended up getting a six pack of founders porter for a few bucks less, I will probably pick that one up next time I am there

#2103 9 months ago

I just finished up the last one from the 2 fourpacks I was able to grab. I always drank it in a "set" with Gulden Draak 9000 quad, then the UMB, then a Boulevard Whiskey Barrel Stout. One hell of a 3 beer combo, and they really packed a punch!

I have become a super fan of barrel aged stouts over the last couple of years, and have been a recent convert to Belgium strong ales and quads, mainly thanks to HEP, haha. I'm really loving the Gulden Draak regular and 9000s, and particularly Rochefort #10.

I'm really enjoying the quality over the quantity aspect of these stronger beers as well; nothing beats sipping a couple quality beers on a New England Saturday night by the warmth of a wood stove. Well, pretty much every aspect of summer beats New England winters, but I'm sure you get what I mean, haha.

I am in the same boat with the BBS Stouts and Strong Ales. If you can pickup a Golden Draak Brewmasters .... it's done in whiskey barrels, which I am not usually a fan of, but it's a very good beer.

a " set" in one sitting ? you have a strong constitution!

usually one big beer while sitting out in the hot tub looking at the stars on a cold clear night and I am ready for bed!

If any of you guys like Sierra Nevada Torpedo, my Target was clearing it out for $4.48/6 pack. That's ~1/2 off. Check here first.

Have been drinking this for a week now. It's a great beer substitute when you want that hoppy flavor without any alcohol, carbs or calories

Interesting, in a novel type of way.

Since it is alcohol free, it should be significantly cheaper than beer (because of taxes, permitting, distribution channels, etc.), right?

I hope I'm wrong, but I'm guessing it isn't, though, and will be sold side by side with beer, for the same price as their cheaper, session brews.

Interestingly enough, I have taken a single homebrewer hop pellet, popped it through the wife's soda stream carbonator, then used it as the base for a lime-cilantro-chili marinade I make for carne asada and chicken in the summer time. Never occurred to me to drink it though, so maybe I can try my poor man's version.

On a side note, this kind of reminds me of branded limestone water that was meant to be paired with their various bourbon counterparts. Weller Water comes to mind, as well as a few others.

Cheers!

It's about $6 for a 4 pack.

So, apparently, KBS will be available year round now...

I never really had a problem finding it before, even later in the year I could usually find dusty four packs of it here and there in recent years, but this is awesome news.

As much as I used to enjoy "the hunt" for hard to find beers and whisky, I'd rather just relax and drink them, and not have to worry that I'll have to scramble to find whatever it is again.

Hopefully the quality isn't effected by this, and maybe the price...will come down?

Cheers all!

Here in Central CA I can go today and buy verticals of KBS and CBS. Little convenience store close to me has 17-19 CBS on his shelf.

Unfortunately, the only Bruery stuff I have ever really seen with any regularity my way have been the god-awful bakery releases, specifically cherry pie.

We cracked one open Saturday night, and we could barely finish the can amongst the six of us. Syrupy sweet, and super cherry forward. Not balanced at all. Literally a one sip and done beer.

I've had some of their other offerings, which were really good, but they are scarce here. One day I'll find a couple of those killer "weekday" stouts y'all love to tease me with on here

I made the mistake joining their Reserve Society. This opens members up to a lot of their limited beers and for me specifically I have it so I get their Barreled Beers. Every month you receive an email with limited released beers to buy and I seem to like then all so I buy them all. Gets expensive quick but a lot of great beers.

The can ones are hit or miss. I did have one of the meemaw's famous sticky bun stout and would recommend it.

#2132 8 months ago

We just made a run from The Bruery back to Texas with our Hoarders allotment from last year. There are some gems in there.

East Bound and Down Loaded up and Truckin.

LOL - I just picked my Jan-Mar 2020 allotment up and had 3 cases. It's not hard to accumulate a lot in a little time! I did the Reserve Society as I am big into the Bourbon Beers. Not sure if it be worth it to do Hoarders or not!

The 12 days beers I wasn't sold on. Not that they're bad, just that I was satisfied with just have flights of them.

EDIT: That Black Tuesday is AWESOME

#2134 8 months ago

Holy shit! It's...………………………………………………………….BEAUTIFUL!!!

I love me some bourbon barrel aged stouts, Belgian strongs, and browns.

Stay safe out there!

So are these available off the shelf, or are these brewery only?

They look ridiculously good!

The Bruery has three memberships one can join: Preservation, Reserve and Hoarders Society (link is for Reserve http://reserve.thebruery.com/). The great thing about this membership is the beer, of course, but also that The Bruery will store the beer for you. Being that I am almost 3 hours from them it's not as if I can drive down every month to pick beer up. So they give you the option of having it shipped (adds up quick) or they will store it and you just email them when you want to have it picked up.

Members get first crack at the beers. IF it doesn't sale out I believe the bottles will then go on sale to the public but only at the two locations. So the chances of seeing some of these at a local place is scarce.

We are at 17 cases and probably could have fit 12 more. We actually scaled it down from year before lol

an amazing beer for sure. i think i gave it a 4.75 or 5

#2142 8 months ago

Crazy...in an awesome way of course.

In a similar vein, I'm about 45 minutes from Treehouse, which people go gaga over. Alchemist offerings are only an hour away in VT. And Lawson's is distributed like Bud Light in CT. Strangely, I haven't had one of the three, in I'm guessing, over a year now.

Funny how the whole forbidden fruit thing works.
