Astute readers will notice that two of these releases were carried over from the 2011 schedule. Due to increased demand for our core brands, we lost the ability to have more than one Big Beer in process at a time. This capacity reduction caused two significant delays in 2011's series and a few small ones as well.
These changes won't affect the Big Beer Series Subscription, as each subscription is good for nine releases, regardless of when you sign-up or how many beers come out during the calendar year. It's not too late to reserve a subscription for the beer lover on your shopping list. You'll be giving them a great gift that keeps giving all year long.
