Sore Eye Sudsmas happened last Saturday night at Societe Brewing. I’m blown away by the generosity of the craft beer community! We helped push Societe over 15,000 lbs for their month long effort (it’s not over yet, get your donations over there).
There’s only one thing I have to say after collecting 3,573 pounds of donated food for the SD Food Bank: “Thank you #SDBeer , you are amazing!”
It’s been a long time since I invented a new type of serial post, so now there’s the Sore Eye Files for you! Here’s the premise, I dig into my phone and find a bunch of pictures to reminisce with you about the awesome and charmed life I get to live. Member January? Oooh, I member. Let’s dig into my phone and see what happened:
First off, if you want to see the Channel 10 piece, click here. Did you like this post, should I continue marching through the months of this year? These are questions for you, the greatest humans on earth, let me know your thoughts, I’m a man on the people.
First off, thank you to the Brewers Association for sending me a copy of this great publication to review; I truly appreciate it! Secondly, breaking news, I do read actual books! I know in this day and age people think that publications are obsolete, however, I still completely enjoy the advantages of having a physical book, namely, you don’t have to worry about a battery running out, the flight attendant can’t make you turn it off, you can bend the corner of pages you want to review in the future, and you can add notes in the margins if you want. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, here’s the official info for this book:
What? Super rare you say? That’s all us beer geeks need to get ourselves worked into an “I’m entitled to this” frenzy of epic proportions. Everything is relative, right? So Brian, what do you mean by super rare? Cellar 3 will be releasing only 600 bottles of this unique beer, Ochre Frumento, that has spent just over 6 years in its oaky home (first brandy barrels and then bourbon barrels). To put that into perspective, this beer is older than more than 100 San Diego breweries, think about that for a minute, ok, don’t, it’ll hurt your head. For a brewery like Green Flash, this amount of bottles is like me offering a one bottle release of my home brew.
No Brown Paper Tickets, no Eventbrite, no proxies, and no reservations for this two bottle per person beer. You can send your friends though, well, I’m assuming they are humans. To get this fine product, the second release in the Cellar 3 Barrelmaster’s Reserve Series, you must (gasp) actually go to Cellar 3 on Saturday, September 17th! See how I expertly conveyed all the information in this (^) graphic!? With an ABV of 17.5% do you really need 2? Uhh, hell yes you do!
