Perennial Sump is hitting the store Monday January 8. It’s an unbelievable Imperial Coffee Stout with Sump Coffee. The crowning combination of St. Louis craft, all in one bottle. As you are sure to understand, this beer is becoming as desirable as Abraxas and gets more and more followers yearly. With that said, we have have a plan for our release to ensure the most fair and efficient spread as possible. So before you hop in your car and rush down here on Monday, we kindly request that you read the information below.


We’ll be officially releasing Perennial Sump¬† on Monday January 8 as a standard bottle release with a limit based on attendance. We understand that many people work so we’ll hold off on the release until 7:00 PM. Our release will be from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM.


We got a good amount this year. The limit will be based on turn out. HOWEVER, if you come to the shop between 7:00 PM and 10:00 PM, you WILL get at least a bottle of Sump!


As a courtesy to those who are unable to attend on Monday AND depending on availability of Sump bottles remaining after our release, we will be taking holds. We’ll be taking holds via text and also via our blog. In order to put in a hold, you must be in our standard Beer Geek club. This is our free club and has ABSOLUTELY no requirements to join. Holds are limited to 1 bottle per person and they are only good for 24 hours. PLEASE don’t text in a hold request until you see our Tweet! If you text beforehand, we may not even receive the message and will not reply.
