          Still looking.

           

          Some come in 6 packs, some in 4 packs and some in single 24 oz bottles.  I got the pack size, or 2 large bottles when that was the choice.

                    A WELL regarded beer. Big grin Big grin

                      I was very fortunate to have a couple friends share some of their NG R&D beers on Friday.

                       

                      Bourbon Barrel Kriek

                       

                      Gueuze

                       

                      Two Women Lager

                       

                      All very tasty. Apparently the Kriek sold out within hours and they were limiting people to 3 bottles ea. I really regret not making the trip with them.

                       

                      FYI: I'm told that when you go to NG for the tour you want to go on a Friday and make a reservation for the hard hat tour. It's the only tour that goes through both breweries.

                        Holy WTF Batman, I have not seen mention of these AT ALL.  Got any you can send me?!??!??

                         

                        More importantly, how does one get R&D beers?


                        Former runner

                          I'm not real sure what the deal is with the R&D beers. I thought I read somewhere that Dan only brews them at the original brewery and they are usually a 1 time deal. The BB Kriek and Gueuze were released the weekend of Great Taste of the Midwest. My friends happened to get tickets and were there that weekend. I was fortunate they shared a bottle of each with a group of about 12 people. So I only got a sample of each. NG mentioned the release on their FB page a few days before and they were only available at the Hilltop brewery.

                            I am on their FB page, but must have missed this.  Sheesh.  Not that I could have done anything about it, but alas.

                              You mid westerners are killing me talking about all of this beer that I have no chance of getting.
