Thanks for stepping-up, Adam.
Everyone should know that the problem originated with Fantome Brewery and you’re doing the ethical thing on the brewery’s behalf.
In the past, I’ve had dozens of bottles of Fantome and I adore their wild-yeastiness and funky mix of spices (hence why I’ve continued buying bottles) but the latest batch isn’t right. I hate to be calling anyone out in a forum-setting like this but I’m 5/5 on bad bottles (over the last 3-months from two reputable Victoria stores). Nobody should find themselves paying top dollar and tasting a product that is sub-par.
You’ve done the right thing by offering to take back unsatisfactory bottles.
If I may, I’d like to impose upon my fellow RB members:
Should your wallets permit the ‘splurge’ – please buy an extra one or two beers from Raincity Brand’s line-up to help them out. Seeing that they are actively looking to correct this situation and undertaking an expensive endeavour recalling Fantome - they also need our help so we can continue to see some of our other favourites: Cantillon, Upright, Pretty Things, Unknown Brewery.
Again, thank you Adam for rectifying the situation.
