Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Russian River and Lost Abbey
I'm interested in trying some of the beers from these two brewries but I can't seem to find any. I live in Northwest Florida (near Pensacola) and didn't expect to find any close by but this past weekend I visited family in the Cincinnati area and couldn't find any there either (although I did find a fine selections of beer). Anyone know where I might find either of these in my neck of the woods or will I have to wait until the fall when the weather cools and have them shipped to me?

I don't think you are going to find either of those anywhere near where you are. There are plenty of people online that are willing to trade those. I know someone (brother-in-law)who lives on base and can get those beers cheaper than anywhere else. He trades a lot of beer. I can put you in touch with him when you are ready to trade if you'd like.

They do distribute their normal, non barrel aged beers, but I don't know the extent. If you want the funky ones, you're pretty much only going to find them local to the breweries (or by trade, as was mentioned)

I'd be willing to trade or purchase, since there isn't a lot of "trade" quality beer in my area, unless he likes homebrew.

Bill, you need to ask these questions over on the BBB. This board is specifically reserved for homebrewing discussion.

Re: Russian River and Lost Abbey
To bring this in line with a homebrewing discussion, I gotta say I'm not only interested in drinking the beer but also with culturing the dregs from the bottles and using them in batches of homebrew. Anyone try this with either of these breweries beers?

Re: Russian River and Lost Abbey
Hey Hannah, I have cultured the dregs from Russian River's sour beers and am having good results so far. None of the beers are done yet, but they are coming along and the final starter tasted pretty much in line with the rest of the RR sours.

I have 1 possibly 2 brett isolates from the recent Beatification dregs, but haven't used them yet.

I have a Flanders Red and a Mega Oud Bruin fermenting with a starter made from the dregs of a bottle of Red Poppy (plus some US-05). I also have a couple beer aging with dregs from Russian River bottles (Beatification, Depuration), although in each case they were just added for complexity to already buggy beers.

Re: Russian River and Lost Abbey
FWIW, the mixed culture that I have going now was started with the dregs for one of each, Beatification, Supplication, and Temptation. All from the '08 release. The wild character of each was similar enough to where I didn't think it was worth maintaining seperate cultures.
