    I guess I am saying the merch/merch value was essentially worthless IMO. Do you place a $50 value on yet another growler? I sure as hell don't. And I still haven't used my merch value for this year. I guess I'll order an overpriced T-shirt or something that will include shipping in the cost.

    Yes, we were getting something for that extra money, but it wasn't something we wanted, nor even close to a good value.

    Oh no I for sure agree 100%. I wish all memberships would be just beer. I don't need a 15th brewery member shirt or a 20th growler to put in a cupboard and never see again. However, I do use the klean kanteen growlers they gave us, I definitely would have 0 use for the $50 merch credit if I was a member this year as I am a giant human and their hipster sized stuff doesn't fit me.

    You don't have to use the $50 credit only on merch. You can use it just like a regular gift card during aos presales for beer.

    I don't know if it changed recently but I used my credit on my first two orders back in Jan and Mar on bottles of Moxie and Fields Forever and didn't run into any issues. First aos sale I got a bottle of Moxie and entered the code. System saved the remaining credit and applied the balance the next time I bought Fields Forever.

    If you're not canning an IPA you are leaving money on the table.

    I am pretty underwhelmed by this.

    Didn’t gush for me. I thought the nectarine flavors were nicely prominent if a bit sweet for my taste.

    This is actually pretty good. They let me try the base beer IPA and I was not a fan, but it does well with the mild sour.

    this makes a lot of sense because it’s not a style they know well.

    i also hear that the ipa isn’t even theirs, is that true?

    saw this on google when looking them up that made me chuckle

    Not sure if they brewed it or not. They make it seem like they did on the menu. I think they brewed a Resilience IPA iirc. Either way, I hope they don’t start canning them.

    And another
    Gusher

    So 2/3 of the bottles I picked up 10 days ago have been gushers. This is reassuring.

    Both bottles have also been Meh

    You’re making me happier and happier that I didn’t renew.
