Had a slow internet connection this morning? Well, you missed it.
Today was the release of Black Tuesday, The Bruery's infamous 19.2% ABV barrel-aged imperial stout, dubbed the holy grail of high-alcohol beers. At 10 a.m., 3,000 bottles were made available on the brewery's website, and at 10:10 a.m., all 3,000 bottles were sold. The limit was two bottles per person.
One commenter wrote, "I am in the dentists chair getting a tooth pulled and trying to buy it with my phone. Phone froze and it was sold out by the time I could get back in. Bummer. Now I have a hole in my mouth and no Black Tuesday."
Another added, "No worries, 2,700 of them will be on eBay in about 15 minutes."
