    What is Surly doing about the infected bottles? I pulled a bottle from my cellar(real cellar not closet) tonight and it was tart, infected no doubt. Has Surly addressed this yet?

    Have not heard this from anyone I know who got bottles either. Obligatory, "I'll take them off your hands" comment.

    I had one last year and it was totally fine. I wonder how many bottles were infected then? It obviously wasn't every bottle.

    That sucks though to hear. I thought the '14 bottle was the best of any year I've had.
