    Thanks in some part to the BA thread about Secret Barrel Society, Caleb confirmed that the 2013 batch of Persimmon is also unfit for release:

    I'm actually okay with opting for Sour Reserve b4 than hoping that third time's the charm for Persimmon. My only concern is that bit about picking up the bottle the week prior to the pickup window for the lottery:
    Does that mean if they decide the pickup window starts the week after Thanksgiving that I have to go to Indy Thanksgiving Weekend?

    How many people will hold for the spring batch of Persimmon in hopes they don't go 0 for 3?

    Thanks to Rempo, I can now confirm that there were carbonation issues with the first unreleased batch. It also smelled a little cheesy, but it tasted fine.

    I'm starting to think we'll never see another batch of Persimmon released by Upland.

    I can't wait to wake up tomorrow and see the thread posted in US - Great Lakes: "Upland announces newest beer brewed with baby tears and kitten blood, will be sold solely in Saskatchewan"

    Went searching for Upland Persimmon information. Found this.

    I suppose it's time to hunt solely for Kiwi

    New message from Upland:


    While it's not mentioned directly in this email, the last message from Upland on the issue stated that any Persimmon winners could redeem their reservation now, any upcoming release, or hold onto the reservation for when Persimmon is re-released:

    Yep just signed up for Sour Reserve. Now the question is, if I bought two tickets to FunkFest shouldn't I get two entries? Those lambics were allotted per ticket not ticket purchaser. Upland, Momfrompurdue really wants her bottle of Sour Reserve too.;)

    I'll probably do SR, but I'm tempted to hold out for a potential 2014 release of the Pawpaw Lambic. Caleb brought a few cases of it to a pre-FOBAB event and it was great. Like a funkier Persimmon. Wild stuff.

    When you open to Eventbrite, it adds:
    -----
    My free one is for choosing Persimmon a long time ago during a first-come-first-served online release.

    It's interesting Pawpaw isn't on the Secret Barrel Society link to their sour release schedule for next 16 months.....

    As much as I love Funky South Paw I need EVERYONE to win Pawpaw and send me those precious ID's. ;)


    Rempo, you in? We can corner the market and PROFIT!

    I am not an SBS member. And no, you may not have access to my rolodex of IDs.
