Also, a caveat to the IPAs. I just tried them and they are not my best. I was pretty nervous to taste them cause it was the brew day from hell and I haven't had one of those in a while. Anyways, they are drinkable and have some good qualities but don't expect to be blown away. My mash was screwed and they are a bit under attenuated for and hazy for a west coast style IPA. Not to denture you all just some transparency. The other brews have some quality to them and I am proud of them.

Starting soon,

Here is the list:

@Scturo
1. Hibiscus Cider (backsweeten) - A sangria like drink, 7.2% abv, 2 months old
2. BDSA - Trappist style, 8.5% 6 months old.
3. Blueberry Sour/Farmhouse Ale - 6% abv 9 months old.
4. WC DIPA - Classic WC Hoppynesd, 8% abv
5. Choco Coco Grande - Dark Chocolate/Coconut Imperial Stout. Cocoa nibs, ancho Chile’s, toasted coconut. 9.2% abv.
(Maybe a couple more items, or repeats on request.)

@fourfarthing
1. Azacca Grisette with Saison yeast
2. Azacca Grisette with Farmhouse yeast
Based on what is left/still tasty and fits the pickers preference
3. BoPils
4. DDH Two Hearted Clone
5. Brett IPA
6. Robust Porter
(Maybe a surprise or two depending in if brewing weather reappears or my Pilsner finishes.)

@GaBrewZoo
1: Honey Saison. This one is from last year. A bit of funk to it, and the honey is really coming through now. Made with pilsner, wheat, sorachi ace hops and orange blossom honey.
2 & 3: American wheat beer. The wife wanted a lighter beer for the summer and likes Shock Top, so I made her this. Pilsner, wheat, a little Vienna, tiny bit of chocolate wheat, El Dorado hops, orange peel and coriander, US05. I made two kegs, one of them I added 1/2 gallon orange juice to the fermenter.
4 & 5: NEIPA. Made a batch of this last month, it only lasted two weeks (shhh, I have two bottles of it left, I may include one). This time I made 10 gallons, still dry hopping. Half the batch fermented with US05, other half S04. Pilsner, oat malt, oat milk, citra, Amarillo, Apollo, warrior.
6: Dark Saison. Just kegged. This is a dark Saison with 2# orange blossom honey and oak chips soaked in a dark red wine. Tastes fantastic. I will send two bottles, one to drink now, one to age a little to help the honey develop.
7 (maybe?) Hefeweizen. Just brewed this one Saturday. If it's done and turns out okay, I'll throw one in.

@PianoMan
(all 12oz bottles)
1) No boil Papaya Wheat. 5%. Added papaya chunks at day 2 fermentaion. About 5 weeks old.
2) Gin/Lime Gose. 4.5%. Added gin and lime extract. About 5 weeks old.
3) Imperial Stout. 8.5%. About 3 months old.
4) True Barrel Aged Quad. 12%. Aged in a Balcones Wiskey Barrel. About 3 months old. A bit flat and sweet.
5/6/7 (?) Hopefully a Peach Wheat, Hard Limeade, and Hard Lemonade all around 6%.

@imasickboy
One bottle of all the following:
1. English Brown Ale - ~4% - I make this all the time, because I love it. And it's not going to make me late for work.
2. German Pale Ale - 5.1% - I was fishing for a lawnmower beer, and thought I had it with German malts and German hops, with Chico yeast, but mashed too high for it to be exactly what I wanted. Seems sweet to me, but still a good beer.
Mutant beers:
3. 2 different versions of this: https://www.homebrewtalk.com/forum/threads/mutants-of-wort-competition-south-central-pa.649465/
4. --One as-is, with 4 pounds of orange blossom honey added to the carboy. I can't say for certain what the OG was on this, as I didn't check, but other club members said their wort was a good bit higher than the recipe called for. 10.2% minimum
5. --One barleywine style, re-boiled down to 1.101 with some additional finishing hops. 9.9% Oaked, because why not?
Coconut Dark Mild - 3.7% - Because summer. And because I don't make this beer often enough.
6. Justa Stout - 5.1% - It was going to be a foreign extra stout, but changed my mind when weighing grains, and dialed the base malt back a bit. I'll be putting this on nitro, so will have to bottle condition some for you before I keg the rest.

@Dade0
1. Nordic Farmhouse
2. Belgian Dark Strong
3. Cyser
4. Hefeweisen
5. Surprise

@Thorrak
1. Black & Blue Melomel (Melomel /w Blackberries, Blueberries, and Raspberries)
2. "It's What I Had" Lager - Yeah, no style specified. California Lager yeast /w an assortment of hops. Mostly Saaz, so I think it counts as pilsner-y. ;)
3. "Bourbon Chips are Magic" - Bourbon chip-infused Stout
Buckwheat Mead - Mead made from Buckwheat honey
NOTE: I expect a somewhat delayed shipping timeline (and haven't tasted 2 of the four offerings, so no idea on quality) so I'm also throwing in a little extra project for the adventurous homebrewer. No soldering required this time.

@jerbrew
1) IPA with C hops and brux trois
2) same IPA with US-05
3) Prickly Pear Cider
4) Saison
5)Belgiany pale beer
6) dark saison w/ sangria

@TwistedGray
1. Mexican Milk Stout (unintentionally soured)
2. Prop 215 Session IPA
3. Farmhouse Saison (it's a saison but comes out like a wheat to some)
4. Russian High Life Pale Ale - caffeine (tea beer)
5. Rooibos Biscuit Pale Ale (tea beer)
6. Cider Stout - V1
7. Cider Stout - V2
8. Hibiscus dry hopped Session IPA
9. Raspberry and Blackberry Session IPA

I do not know if we have any kind of protocol for when half the people do not show up. The remaining pick list in order is as follows:
@GaBrewZoo
@PianoMan
@jerbrew
@fourfarthing
@Thorrak

My thoughts are that it is a first come first serve. So whoever makes it to this thread can pick from the remaining offers until all offers are exhausted.

Wow. I had so much difficulty deciding which offer to choose first and still got my first choice after being so late. Thanks Twisted, great job.

I did have to give this up for a few minutes. Guess I'll head back down there.

I love labels, but I prefer good homebrew even more. It's kind of like when people say they are amazed at how much I like beer, and I tell them I probably like making it more than drinking it, and I REALLY like drinking it.
