No. That's the old, discontinued version. The new one is called 17 Grande Réserve. I understand it will be brewed every year. The 2011 bottling is currently in stores.

Besides vintage, name and label what is the difference between the 2? I have the 17 Grande Reserve FWIW

They haven't announced what they will be serving yet but they are supposed to the day of.

had oso brewing's Lupulin Maximus last night for the first time.

tiny operation in the middle of nowhere wisconsin, but I've had others from their lineup and they are a real hidden gem and have been following them closely the past 2 years.

Most noticably, you pour the bottle and there is a hop cone in it. I've never seen anyone else do that but it was a fantastic touch. Very sweet for an IPA but I absolutely loved everything about it.

On a much lesser note, I was excited to see dogfish/victory/stone redoing Saison Du Buff. I was a huge fan last time around because it was such an interesting brewing choice for a collaboration between those breweries. I had it on tap. I'm pretty sure this keg came from dogfish but it was much less distinct who mixed it this time around.

It's not at the Dilboy VFW anymore? Shame. I still have a bunch of those Nerax pint glasses somewhere. Looking at the beer list I could definitely dig the Mayflower Spring Hop on cask.

If you get a chance to make to The Great Taste this year, you'll be amazed at what Oso will bring. Last year, their entire line-up was ridiculous and everything was barrel aged and blended in some kind of way. The Revenge of Goldilocks and Night Train were two from that day that I can actually remember considering I probably sampled, spit out, tossed and pissed out 100 beers at the event...
