So Happens It's Tuesday but on Thursday

I have been searching far and wide for a yearly release beer that gets harder for me to track down every year.  I asked David @NorCalR1 if he has access to it, he told me he would look around and how many I wanted.  I told him at least two and let me know cost and I will gladly cover shipping too.  Not only did David go way out of his way in California traffic to pick me up a couple, he sent way more than I was expecting!  On top of that extreme generosity he blows my nonexistent ass up with a crazy good selection of smokes.  Thank you very much!  Wowzers!  Love you like a brother.  Thank you again!

    That was a Disneyland trip for the little but I did have to go to San Francisco to grab them. Scored myself a few Founders bombers for myself. Enjoy @Patrickbrick glad they survived the trip

    Damn that stuff is “Stout” at 14%ABV!

    This one is the same as the 18 edition 15%.  It's big brother Black Tuesday rings in at 20+%.  If it's not at least 10% why bother drinking it, at least that's my motto.

    @Patrickbrick Looks like their 2016 release was 14%, 2017 was 14.6%, the release you have is indeed 15%. Had to crank the brightness up and zoom in to see it is not 14%.

    Yeah I'm with you on the alcohol content minimum, unfortunately I'm allergic to wheat so can only drink GF beer, strongest I've found thats gluten free is Green's Quest Triple Blonde Ale it's 8.5% and damn good beer, only draw back is a case of 12 16.9oz bottles is about $65, its imported from Belgium.

    Strange, two 2016 releases with different alcohol contents.

    They have to keep it at 14% on their website for legal reasons, just like the muscle car manufacturers in the late 60's and early 70's had to understate their HP for insurance purposes.  :smile:

    Different states have different regulations as well. I know the Bourbon County has brewed it with two ABVs in the past for this reason. Some states don't consider it beer anymore above a certain percent. Then they're getting into a whole mess with distribution.
