    lol I'm doing a glitter beer soon. Only 1 keg for an event though but I'm very curious to see it in action.

    This will definitely explode (SO MANY NUCLEATION POINTS), and I want the videos, because they will be hilarious.

    I mean, it's perfectly fun for a random keg treatment at the taproom or whatever, or even just having it available to add some into a draft pour. A harmless gimmick that can be entertaining. But bottling it? No fucking way.

    Hah good point, I didn't even think of that.

    Kegs can sustain much higher pressures than glass bottles.

    The glitter would cause nucleation points which could make the CO2 break out of solution. A keg could handle the extra pressure where a bottle might not.

    I'm sure it's been mentioned already, but damn I love SN Celebration season. One of my first favorite go-to beers and will always get a case or two worth of it every season.

    In my experience, these hold up really well for the better part of a year or more after release

    Not a big fan of Almanac, but if they can push this notion of affordable Barrel Aged sour in a tin I will get behind it.

    $5 a pop. Hits the basic requirements. If they start pumping out varities at this price pont I will support.

    Is this beer specifically targeting the stripper market segment?

    I mentioned this in another thread but the blueberries in that beer are from my parents' farm outside of Chico. Pretty neat, and glad it turned out well. Third or fourth time they've used them, first canned though.

    Just opened this several year old home brew stout that had become an absolute fridge turd...


    Its fuckn incredible... just shy of 3 years old ish and its a whole other beast than when I tried it last- over a year ago, figured it was already past its prime then honestly.

    It really tasted all oxidized and falling off hard a year ago- anyone know why that would go away or improve in this manner?

    Came across a cellar spreadsheet that included secondary values for the bottles.
