Any word on what kind of BA Mexican Cake? I know Tequila's one of them, right?
There's a very limited amount of tequila (I saw a couple of barrels last time I was at Westbrook, and I think that may be it) and a lot of different bourbon barrels (mostly Four Roses, from what I've been told). No idea if they are planning to release barrel type-specific variants or just blend to taste and call that variant "Bourbon". Haven't heard or seen any other types. I can already feel the butt-hurt if there's no Apple Brandy this time.Any word on what kind of BA Mexican Cake? I know Tequila's one of them, right?
Here's what happened last year, no guarantees it stays the same:How was the BAMC release last year? Is it a be-there-the-day-it's-released-or-you're-fucked kinda thing? Or does it hang around? Also, do they announce the specific date well in advance?
The reason I ask is that I'm thinking about visiting my sister and her fiance who just moved to Charlotte in late July (to line up with the Phish show there 7/25) and if I could combine it with getting some BA Mexican Cake, I'd probably have to grow a neckbeard.
unless they held some back for whatever reason it was all gone that day. a friend was able to grab a 3rd bottle of RW about 4 spots in front of me (on a 2nd time through) and the person directly in front of me got the last 1-It was, not shockingly, all gone that day.
-They handed out 200 tickets for full allotments of 6, then tickets for the Red Wine variant which there was more of. There was no difference in the actual tickets themselves...only the first 200 were 'guaranteed' a full allotment (2 of each variant); however, IIRC, a couple people didn't purchase the full amount and #203/4 ended up with the last full allotment.
Thanks for the rundown. This happened on a Saturday? Actually, last year's release was Friday, July 12th. Westbrook usually does special releases on weekdays as opposed to weekends.
a friend was able to grab a 3rd bottle of RW about 4 spots in front of me (on a 2nd time through) and the person directly in front of me got the last 1. IIRC, everyone in line as the bottles were dispensed ended up with at least one bottle of RWMC as the allocation was adjusted to 1/person for everyone in line without a ticket (those that arrived after ticket handouts ceased).
Was that really on a Friday? Huh, I guess that's what happens when you are an academic on summer term and not teaching at the time, all days feel like the weekend.I'm not sure Mike@Westbrook is on this site, so I'm going to clarify a couple of details mentioned above...
For reference, I am NOT affiliated with Westbrook but did assist with the release last year (along with a couple other locals) and just wanted to clarify a couple of items above. As for this year's upcoming release...I don't know any details at this point but would assume Westbrook is planning ahead giving the popularity of the beer and other recent trends in beer releases.
Most places I see it for $10-12.What is the average pricing for Gose six packs at stores and/or the brewery? Thanks.
