(Truckee, CA) – Another online ordering event has gone awry.
Update: Hooray! From Tashbrew on Beer Advocate, “As of 7:36am PDT the inbox was up and accepting emails. Very, very sorry about the hickup.”
At 12am midnight PDT (this morning), Fifty Fifty Brewing‘s Eclipse Imperial Stout pre-order began. Beginning at that hour, beer drinkers could send an email for “futures” of the beer which is planned to be released in December in a variety of barrel-aged versions.
At around 1am, something had already gone wrong:
child status 100…The e-mail message could not be delivered because the user’s mailfolder is full.
It is still pretty early in California so the brewery hasn’t issued any new instructions for ordering yet…will be interesting to see how this mess gets cleared up.
Below are the beer details (if there are still futures to be had once the system comes back online). More details at the brewery’s website.
