Through this, you should be able to discern a shift in packaging strategies: a division of the "armada" into the 22-ounce bottle "Mutiny Fleet," and the "Pyrate" and "Clipper" fleets in 12-ounce bottles. Note also the plans to brew a formal batch of the GreatER Pumpkin, the spectacular experimental aged-in-bourbon-barrels Great Pumpkin, for consumer purchase (albeit limited supply). Note two new beers, the Letter of Marque hop rye porter in April, and Smoke on the Water smoked imperial porter for June.
