    I don't know much about Floodland, but read half this thread. Chill y'all.
    Something new and something closed. Floodland gives me fruited Flora vibes.

    Any info on the May public sale? I’m getting sick of checking my phone every 10 mins.

    It won't be today or tomorrow, I'm still doing math because I'm trying to add a few cellar sale boxes so it doesn't sell out as fast.

    Bottleworks Anniversary beer was the highlight of Brouwers Sourfest for me this year. A stunningly beautiful and delicious beer Adam.

    Sorry for causing anxiety. I'll take that into account when I do the next one.

    Thanks, dude, you are too kind. Getting to make that beer for them was a legitimate honor, it still seems surreal.

    I will say, it is nice to have a bit of forewarning. I’m grateful for the public sales. Makes waiting out the Oakworks list a little less painful.

    Sorry :(

    I'm working on getting larger runs for the public sales. I know that's not much of a consolation when the beer sells out in such a stupid amount of time.

    All good. Win some, lose some. It’s just a testament to how wonderful your beers are . . .

    Any reason why you don't do a lottery? Seems thats what a lot of breweries do with a super small supply with super high demand. At least that way people feel they had a chance instead of it being a race to the carts.

    Sounds like a PITA/much less straightforward than a simple online sale. With the current system, I’ve been able to get about half of the bottles, and that’s enough for me. It does help that it’s easy to try the rest at various local events. Are folks consistently missing out?

    That is a solid point. To answer your second question I am unsure, it seems that a lot of people complain about missing out. I guess there is no real way to make everyone happy other than steady growth and capacity increase.
