    I don't have facebook or twitter and I don't want to rely on BA for information on this release.

    If ya hear somethin', say somethin'!

    This is great news! I just traded away my last BdM GR. Looks like a trip to A2 is in order soon!

    Meet up at Zingerman's for Reubens before and after?

    I would suggest you grab a Blimpy Burger in between the reubens, but I've heard that ship has sailed :(

    Aw shit! Sitting on the sidewalk munching one of those the night before the BdM release was a total highlight of the trip.

    I could probably take care of you. Just BM me when the release details come out to remind me

    Still no release date set. A Twitter user asked Ron about Los Vivos Los Muertos being for sale at the brewery to which he replied that it will BUT "Govt shutdown stalled the label approval. Shooting for March now." The user asked if the same was true for Sobre GR and Ron simply replied "Oooooh, yeaaaaah."

    This tells me NOTHING. The picture above shows Sombre GR with labels. I'll be in A2 tonight, I'll ask around.

    I think those labels might have just been temporary for when they went to GABF and did some events where they served it/blended it with something from New Belgium, etc. Someone on Instagram said they called about it and were told there wasn't much and they were going to save it for "special events".

    I would certainly appreciate you passing along any information they give you.

    I'm a failure. But I will pass the blame onto the bartenders who have no idea what's going on around them. No word on the status of it. The guy looked at me like I was talking crazy and then had to ask another guy if it was on tap. After all of this turned up dry, he told me to get in touch with my local craft beer store and they should be able to get a few bottles...

    That's funny. I called last night and they told me there were 7,000 bottles. That was the answer I wanted to hear, so it must be legit.

    What's the difference between the "regular" Sobrehumano Palena'ole and the Grand Reserve?

    JP Grand Reserve = extra time in barrel, usually 12mo+

    Thanks broseph, I was a bit confused because the original was already barrel aged. JP Grand Reserve is MOAR .rar Check.
