    No, but I'd advise people against getting their hopes up that bottles will be "released" and sold to-go (aka, showing up on trade boards). From what I've gathered it will be a ticketed on-premise event which includes a tasting. But this is based only on casual chats with staff, nothing has been said officially yet so who knows, we just have to keep waiting...

    Paid $20 like a sucker here in CT (freaking Amity). Knew it was $5 too much, but didn't feel like finding it somewhere else.

    I saw it at Amity for that price and while I didn't know what the cost should actually be, it seemed a pretty safe bet that it was overpriced. I still considered picking it up due to also not wanting to try tracking it down elsewhere, but since I'm moving in a week or so I figured it was a pretty bad idea to add another bottle of beer to the cellar and then have to relocate it shortly while simultaneously overpaying for it.

    Farm to Face being released at the brewery on 11/3. Well would you look at that, I just happened to have that day off.

    Apparently it's also hitting distro.

    I just bought a Nancy (12.99 in Chicago). Do I drink it fresh or lay it down for a while?

    I'd drink it now. My experience with Allagash cherry sours is that they have not aged fantastically well, and Nancy is drinking great at the moment.

    Was 12.50 down this way, I snagged a few. It's worth it.
