    Are you letting them warm up a bunch before opening? Pretty much any AWA will gush if you do that. Haven’t had a RB gush otherwise but haven’t had this one.

    Weird.

    I guess other than inconvenience/mess, is there an inherent qualitative issue with gushers? I've had plenty of legit great beer (Tilquin for example) that happened to gush on opening.

    I was able to attend their Black Project event, and it was pretty good. The glass that was given was super thick, not thin; I like it.

    Yes. When I got home I’ll put some beer in it.

    Wasn't sure if I should create a new thread for this or post here.

    But big favor to ask if anyone is going to the rare barrel before the end of the month? If you could pm me and help me out I would appreciate it.

    A little late with this, but all the recent Ambassadors bottles have been great IMO (The Kind You Find, Kerfuffle, and Mellifluent).

    I’ve been telling everybody about these beers, making my membership absolutely worth it.
