Drain poured mine. No sours for me.
That gives me a sad
I haven't.. and I have thought about trying it/opening it... but I'd hate to crack it and not like it at 15 bucks for the bottle...
LOL @ icetrauma. You need to stop buying sours, man.
Anyone had the Commercial Suicide(im assuming its a new bottle as ive not seen it at specs arbor walk in a long ass time til tonight)?
Loved the first bottling i ever had of it, on tap even better, but somethings definitely amiss with this bottle. I was very dissapointed in the taste of it.
I said that but Funk Metal, being a stout as it's base beer, peaked my curiosity. Needless to say, no mas senor!
Farmhouse yeast instead of English yeast?
Now that you mention it, could be that. It just seemed sour at first, but i had a port before finishing the first glass and it seemed to get better.
then again, i also didnt give it the 24 hour chill they reccommend, so maybe it sitting in the fridge longer after i poured it helped as well. I was just so intent on trying it tonight i HAD to open it.
Am I gathering correctly that Oi Oi is sour CS? Is this the same as the kegs of sour CS you were pouring at JK about a year ago?
Lookin over the Ingredients... (and highlighting the similarities)
The OGs are different = different beers. More so an imperial mild
Imperial mild? Hmmmmmmmmmmm
Saw a guy post on Reddit r/beerporn a bottle of RU-55. It's up for sale? Any idea when it'll make it's way down to Houston?
sometimes bottles come out before they are for sale.
I heard of an Uberkind about 2 months before they went on sale.
Bangers apparently had a case of RU-55 about 3 weeks ago, so it's possible.
Its all about who you know
Well he claimed he bought it at that farmhouse pizza place next door. So I guess so. I mean I see their label was approved Dec 27th or so.
JK self distributes some, so sometimes certain places get stuff early. Stanley's is one of those places.
How much RU-55 are we looking at? 200 cases?
We're hoping RU-55 will be picked up Friday by Virtuoso, but we don't have confirmation yet. We're selling Virtuoso 210 cases, which is most of our first batch. In the meantime, we will self-distribute some Friday to on-premise accounts such as Black Star Co-op, Bangers, Hop Fields and Stanley's Farmhouse Pizza.
Hope you guys are planning to have a bunch of bottles available at Stanley's on the 26th.
I just put this blog post up on RU-55:
Did RU-55 go out to distributors? Any idea when it might hit the shelves?
Yeah I want to snag a bottle of this as soon as it is out
According to the article Jeff posted on-site accounts in Austin will be receiving it Friday. The rest of Texas will get it in a couple of weeks.
Come on by WFM Kirby. I've got some in the back, along with plenty of Uberkind that FINALLY showed up.
I went by about a week ago around 7 in search of a bottle of Funk Metal, I asked three different people, two said they didn't have any, one had no idea what i was talking about.
Virtuoso didn't pickup last week. They're now scheduled to pick RU-55 up from us tomorrow (Tuesday).
Sorry about that. If I'm not here there's a good chance no one who is working will know what you're talking about. I still have about a case of Funk Metal and several cases of Uberkind.
You still have some left? WFM Kirby?
Apparently there's a whole lot of Uberkind hitting shelves. I saw tons of it @ Spec's Smith in Houston last week.
There's a stack of it at CM in Austin that's been there for weeks. For some reason it's moving waaay slower than Funk Metal.
Label. Perceived trade value.
Probably what jbeez said and people may think it is a new version of Das Wunderkind if they don't look it up.
Will there be some available at Stanley's this weekend?
Pretty sure it's the price tag... I kinda winced when I saw it lol
Isn't it the same as Funk Metal?
We're still spoiled when you think about good sours from other states. Most sours run closer to $20 for a large format bottle and 13-15 for smaller bottles. I do feel that you get more bang for your buck with boxers though. Slightly lower pricepoint and more abv, so I'm a bit partial to boxers. Really hoping the carbonation is coming along nicely with the 3rd batch that's coming.
I drank my second to last bottle of Beer Geek this weekend, its still drinking very well. I still get chipotle peppers and a lot of coffee so no worries on those fading. I probably wont drink my last bottle for another 18-24 months.
