I haven't seen any of those hit out here at all. We've been in a JP slump out here for a bit too, and they came back way more pricy, but they're still worth it.

That's an interesting point...JP and another brand's prices went up substantially (seemingly more than everyone else) recently. Of the two, I really haven't bought the other brand's beer since but I still see JP's funk as worth it too.

I'm confused...? or maybe drunk? I think you might be talking about jolly pumpkin. Anyways Bam and Bam Noir are incredible. Haven't ducked up the dollars for too many other of their brews yet, but they're very easy to find around here....

There is a second brewery that is doing only barrel aged beers, limited distribution that Ron J of Jolly Pumpkin is brewing for/consulting...someone from the brewery posted here 1 time....found it:

Leelanau Brewing Company - Each of our beers is a work of art. - Beer for wine glasses.

I've had one of Leelanau Brewing's beers , but at that point (maybe still--the website still says it, but it doesn't look like they update very often) their beer was all being contract brewed at Jolly Pumpkin. Contract brewing is a good way to start getting cash flowing in the correct direction, but for sour beers in particular I feel that using the same brewing and aging location makes it hard to differentiate your beers from your partner's.

After tasting La Roja and Oro De Calabeza at a local homebrew event I am completely hooked. I think I will try to brew a sour or two but cannot believe that they will compare.

You are confused. Jolly Pumpkin or, Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales, is a craft brewery in Michigan. They age all of their beer's in wooden wine barrels. This gives them a natural/organic "funk". As far as I know, they do not make a "pumpkin beer" per-say. Common misconception.
