    Pretty sure you're supposed to store them horizontally.

    Any Pennsylvania folks know anything about the drama surrounding Sole Brewing? Seems to be blowing up all over Facebook today with accusations of people feeling ripped off for the $500 membership, the owner being an arrogant jackass who deletes bad reviews/bans people from their social media/ignores legitimate phone and email inquiries from members, and generally feels like the Wakefield OGs Society part 2, only playing out in warp speed.

    My only exposure to local PA chatter is from what is written by the folks on beeradvocate and there isn't a peep.

    EDIT: Although I see what you mean about their comments on their Facebook page.

    Uniquely odd, yet semi-traditional, Puddin’ Wine is a collaboration with our ‘brothers from another mother,’ Todd and Jason Alstöm of BeerAdvocate.

    Looking to Jason’s legendary Christmas pudding recipe as inspiration, this English-style Barleywine delivers an infusion of flavors through the addition of sultanas, cherries, black currants, plums, dark brown sugar and hazelnuts.

    Brewed with a blend of Maris Otter, Pils and dark crystal malts alongside a bit of toasted wheat, Puddin’ Wine is then rounded out by aging on Terra d’Oro Zinfandel Port barrels for a full 6 months. The result is a full-bodied beer brimming with notes of dark pit fruit, smooth caramel and toffee.

    I'm conflicted.

    On one hand Dogfish Head and Barleywine

    On the other hand Tweedledee and Tweedledum.

    Only thing I know about Sole is that their beers are meh and neck beards used to line up before 7am on Sundays to buy their contract-brewed hazy cans. I guess they have their own space now? Gotta make the paper for that mortgage somehow. Why anyone would drop $500 on a membership for a brewery like that is beyond my understanding.

    Can't wait til they start banning anyone who rates it below a 5/5.

    Bros Score will be the first 6/5.

    I have no shame admitting I will cop a bottle. Sounds like it might be pretty tasty.

    Yeah I don't want to want to try this beer or like it because of the associations, but it actually sounds like it could be pretty good. I kept waiting for the stupid Dogfish Head ingredient reveal, but it never came. I was sure that at some point my interest would be killed by "conditioned in whole fruitcakes" or some other such nonsense.

    I had to write a description of this beer for work that will populate to our mobile app:

    "Don't worry. You can enjoy this BeerAdvocate collab without catching the BanHammer or getting your car towed in a hurricane."

    Too much? Too little?

    I think it's draft only. At least for now. On the their Fishfinder it's primarily giving me draft accounts.

    The big deal so many beer drinkers make over the appearance aspect of hazy IPAs, which is well exemplified by articles like this one, is one of the most obvious signs as to the utter cluelessness most of these people have with regards to the brewing process. I'd love to subject idiots like this to blind taste test conditions, with blindfolds or opaque glassware.
