    For a barrel aged barley wine, it could be so much worse

    wow the membership this year has been absolutely awful. Ever since he started canning IPAs everything else has gone out the door it seems like.

    Really not one Berlinersfield this year and it's July.

    once they got their canning line, it seems they only want to focus on IPAs. Sadly they are just not as good as other breweries that are putting out solid offerings.

    They released Berlinersfield Black Currants and Peaches at the beginning of the year, but yeah it's been pretty slow. I think it's honestly a sign of the times and sours just aren't moving like they used to.

    FWIW they don't have a canning line. The canned beers are actually contract brewed by Lengthwise

    Eh, I have loved all the beers released this year. I personally split the membership and find that a perfect balance. I mean it's not like I am running out of beer to drink overall, just unfortunately drinking less Dionysus.
