    For the reasons I cited I am glad to remain in the minority on this subject.

    If anyone's going to be at this and doesn't want that 2nd bottle at $28/375, let me know. I'd be there, but I'm going to be busy getting married.

    So that means possibly up to $30 on distro bottles. Of which there will be.

    Seems like the perfect day to go drink at Holy Mountain while the rest of the neckbeards in town are waiting in line.

    I don't see $28 confirmed anywhere yet. Certainly could be, but I'll wait to freak out.

    Yes, let me clarify that I've only heard that through the grapevine. It could be wrong, or just subject to change.

    I am very far out of the loop, can anyone explain this ancient one to me? Is this Bourbon Abominable aged in an old Heaven Hill Barrel? And they're doing 2 treatments of it? Sounds amazing if so.

    I was off by a little bit:

    $30/375, limit 1pp.

    If, somehow, any of you end up with an extra, I'll cover your expenses for it/send you De Garde or whatever for one.

    Well, that is only the info for Dark Star. Bbomb could be cheaper and perhaps limit 2? Not sure why they are staggering the release info. :confused:

    Skipping this one, as I am waiting on a TV delivery that was delayed by two days. Oh well.

    Having drank a lot of beer, I am just not convinced that there is a worthwhile difference between the 95th percentile of beer and the 99th. Like I am sure these ancient beers offer something a little different from say, Parabola, but I am not convinced I need to spent 4x more on it and have to wait in line for hours to do so.

    I just got pours, no bottles. Good beers but I clearly cannot discern between 95th and 99th percentile walez.

    Any Cowiche fans here? Had a pour and bought a six pack yesterday at Fremont. It's as great as I remember, but $7 for a pour felt steep. The six pack at $13 felt more reasonable, and if I remember correctly, the same as last year.
