    I've heard this batch of CRU55 is very good, would like to get a few to squirrel away. Uberkind is a perennial favorite of mine as well

    Atrial seems to be the only beer that sells out within the first 1-2 days no matter how much they make anymore.

    I don't think my cardboard box with a neck groove cut-out will make it to the finals for DIY lambic baskets :(

    I'm going to try and go as well. Probably after the ABGB Sweet Barks event though.

    Hey, so what happened to the Dichotomous series? They use to put it out once a quarter, but I can't even remember when I saw it last.

    Gawd I wish they would make that first one just one more time (the watermelon).

    That might just be my favorite Jester King beer of all time.

    No I'm not kidding.

    It was @ElkSherpa’s recipe wasn’t it? I always remember him bringing his watermelon saisons to Freetail all those years ago.

    We're bringing back the Dichotomous series starting with 2019 Hibernal. The difference will be that all of the adjunct ingredients will be grown at Jester King.

    We're also making 2014 Hibernal Dichotomous (rosemary, mint, lavender, watermelon) again as a stand-alone beer (outside of the Dichotomous series).

    That beer served as a resume of sorts! That culture and composure opened some doors for me.

    lol. It's not in the middle-of-nowhere. It's like 20 minutes from downtown Austin with low traffic.

    So I guess Jester King is going to be distributing to Nebraska now? I'm surprised but I'll gladly take it! So long as I can hoard Petit Prince!
