New Maibrews

Post by Jake1605 » May 1st, 2019, 2:16 pm

3 week old Hopsmack is around, still King Sue. They changed their date label system around with a best by date. 4/1 Alpha Pale & 4/16 Hardway ipa are around

I suppose that’s one way to try and get stock to move faster. Those January Pseudo Sue’s appear to be here for the long haul. Are they dated six months out?

Yeah I just noticed that too. Yesterday I saw Hopsmack best before August?! So it would last, what, 4 months? I doubt it. I don't understand why they'd switch to this date format. Everybody uses bottled on/canned on dates.

People who buy their beer watch dates and this will get more people to buy the product

Yeah they've always had canned on/bottled on dates, which to me makes more sense because people can make their decisions based on that, but I guess. Do you think the canned on is 4 months before the "Best by" then?

This will trick many into buying the beer when otherwise they wouldn’t, leading to fresh product more frequently. I think they need to strategize better, stagger down. 2nd and 3rd waves won’t sell as high as the first wave, sprinkle it out more instead of saturating.

Tipsy's got Hold The Pancakes today, looks like they got three cases and I picked up the last one from their first opened case. It was a little over 23 dollars each. I really wish they had it on tap somewhere to try just a pour of it.

I bet those barrels were 400-600 bucks, I get the price point. You’re not just paying cost, labor & rent.
