$126 for 5 bottles of mystery BA beers, one of them will be a BA Hunahpu, a t-shirt and a10% discount at the tasting room, plus first shot at some other unnamed limited run beers. I can't remember what I paid for a t-shirt ($20?), the BA Hunahpu was $25, if you are lucky enough to get one. IF you lived close enough to the brewery to go once a month and spent $50 each time, that would be $5x12=$60. So the final 4 BA beers would be about $5 each. If I lived closer, I surely would have done it. I believe the kicker is that the 5 beers will all be barrel aged and one of them will be a Hunahpu.

Edit* Brandy BA Hunahpu is selling on a beer auction site for $150-177 a single bottle. There is one bottle currently up for auction that is sitting at $86 with 2 days left. .

I won a chance to buy a barrel aged 2013 Hunahpu this year in their youtube drawings. They were $25 and were dipped in wax. I still have three regular 2013's from March 9th and know that if you stuck around at the brewery once the crowds thinned out at 6:30 pm, you could've bought as much of the regular hunahpu as you could carry once they opened it up to case sales.

It's really not a mystery what they'll be serving up this year in their barrel series if you follow them on facebook. One is guaranteed to be a barrel aged hunahpu. One is going to be a Marshall Zukov. The first one up should be a barrel aged good gourd and another is something they're aging in tequila barrels (I hope it's horchata). I'm betting the last will be a barrel aged sweet stout.

Living near Jacksonville, it's not such a bad drive to go and pick them up. Considering you do get five barrel aged 750 ml beers, the t-shirt and 10% off in the tap room plus an early crack at other specialty beers and the ability to designate a beer mule if you can't make the trip..... not a bad idea!

It sure looked like they had plenty of BA beers going when I was there last month!
I didn't get a good shot of that back wall, it was stacked to the ceiling with barrels, you can see the white painted lids in the background.

Those were the only barrel pics I took, the entire back wall (the ones with the painted lids) was unlabeled. There was also 6 or 8 barrels labeled for Knightly Spirits (a small chain of liquor stores in Orlando). I'm sure they will be rolling different beers through barrels all year. Barrel aged Horchata sounds amazing, Horchata was the most impressive beer in the tap room when I went. I was so impressed with it, I emailed Wayne about it, he responded 10 minutes later.

Yep. I talked to the red bearded guy that's opening up Angry Chair brewing last time I was there. He was bar backing, and he let me know it was basically just two row, a little lactose sugar and the horchata spices (almond, cinnamon, vanilla). I didn't ask him what hops were in play but i'd suspect something very light and noble .
