Futures for the 2013 installment of 5050’s Eclipse barrel-aged imperial stout went up for sale yesterday, allowing people the opportunity to reserve their share of bottles long before the expected release in December. While two of the more coveted treatments are already sold out, four are still available for purchase here. Of course there’s a variety of rules and whatnot to go along with this, but check out the info form below and read through all the technical jargon before placing your order. Futures do allow for a discount on the regular price (don’t celebrate, they’re still $20+ each), and there is shipping available within California. Enjoy!
