Hi friends!

I know this we have teased it for a while, but the time has come to hit you with the concrete details for ABRAXAS DAY 2013.

On November 9, we are celebrating the bottle and draught release of this year’s batch of Abraxas and the debut of the brand-new Coffee Abraxas with Sump Coffee. The release will happen at noon in the tasting room. At this time, we have not determined a bottle limit for Abraxas, but Coffee Abraxas will carry a one bottle per person limit. If you are familiar with our previous releases, this one will be very similar.

Another component that we are adding this year is a VIP draught event. This portion of the day will be a ticketed event with limited availability. Included in the event is an official Abraxas snifter and 4 ounce pours of the following beers: Cigar City Apple Brandy Barrel Hunahpu, Voodoo Big Black Voodoo Daddy, Crooked Stave Vielle Dry-Hopped with Galaxy, Half Acre Big Hugs, Revolution Deth’s Tar, Sun King Lonesome Dove, Central Waters Exodus and 2012 Abraxas. A ticket to the VIP event will also guarantee the ability to purchase one bottle of Coffee Abraxas without having to wait in line.

There will be two sessions for the VIP event. The first session will run from 1-3p and the second from 4-6p. Tickets will go on sale in the tasting room on Wednesday, October 23 at 4pm for $40, cash only. We want to take care of our local supporters by ensuring that you get the first opportunity for tickets. All that are unsold on Wednesday will go up on Brown Paper Tickets on Friday, October 25 at noon.

We’re really looking forward to making the Abraxas release something special and can’t wait to see everyone on November 9th!

-Andy

One ticket per person on Wednesday.

I'm pushing really hard for velvet ropes, but can't make any guarantees. The only fanciness I can guarantee is Jonathan Moxey in a top hat.

Not to sound too greedy, but if we purchase a VIP tix and wait in line, we could theoretically get 2 Coffee Abraxas, right?

Geri's gonna be pissed when I disappear in back without her. Shhhh! Don't tell her and she'll never know.
I am truly looking forward to this, especially after the epic Anniversary Party.

I at least give him credit for bein brave enough to askif it was allowed before just doing it, at the risk of being flamed here.

How many tickets will there be? I can't get there at 4 let alone 5 and would like to know if I even will have a chance to make it before they are gone.

Excellent. Seeing that logo reminds me: if you have new Abraxas shirts at the party, I have a feeling they'd move. I got at least as many compliments on the shirt as I did on the beard (both are pretty fantastic) at the anniversary party.

Speaking of which, damn good job on the anniversary party. So glad I was there!

Any idea if bottles of Abraxas will be hitting retail shops or be available after the release day, for those who can't make it to the party?

My fiancee has offered to "mule"* for me since I will be out of town. She has no interest in the VIP :mrgreen: , so can she just get in line and have a chance at a bottle of Coffee and Regular? Obviously she'll have to get there early enough, first come first serve and all... I just don't want her to waste her time if only VIP's will be grabbing them.

*Obviously I'm joking, and I assume it's not a Faux Pas to have ones significant other pick up a couple bottles of beer for them...

Any chance you will add a commemorative ladies deep-v Abraxas shirt with the VIP ticket?

So, the $40 for the VIP ticket doesn't include any bottles, correct? Just the Abraxas snifter, special draft pours, and the option to purchase 1 bottle of Coffee Abraxas (without waiting in line), correct? Will VIP ticket holders also have the option to purchase regular Abraxas without standing in line?

Final question, has the pricing of the bottles been determined yet?

A question for my own understanding: The VIP ticket guarantee's you an (1) An Abraxas glass (2)Various insanely awesome pours, (3) an opportunity to by Coffee Abraxas without having to wait in lines. However, it does NOT include the cost of one bottle of Abraxas...correct?

We are not going to stop anyone from buying a VIP ticket and waiting in line to get two bottles of Coffee Abraxas. However, you will have to incur the wrath of fellow STLHoppers and people who end up getting shut out on that beer. You want to be that guy, then be that guy. Just remember, that reputation sticks for future releases.

Abraxas will hit distribution later on in the month of November. I don't have specifics on when and where the beer will hit, but I promise we will keep every market in the loop.

There will be Abraxas t-shirts this year and possibly some other fun Abraxas branded goodies. I have already ordered a deep V extra-smedium for you, Joe. Consider that a given moving forward.

You are correct.

Included: snifter, special draught pours, ability to purchase a bottle of Coffee Abraxas.

Not included: the purchase price of Coffee Abraxas, the purchase price of regular Abraxas, other draught options you might be interested in, Abraxas shirts.

VIP ticket holders will be able to purchase Abraxas like everyone else. The quantity will not be as limited as the Coffee Abraxas, so there should be more of that to go around. We will update everyone with final pricing and bottle limit info as we get a little closer to November 9.
