Looks a bit like 395
6 to me but either way, that's a decent amount.
Looks like I was right, bottle of Motley Cru 2015 says 3956 bottles.
I arrived around 10:15 and the line was maybe 30-40 people deep. By the time I left with my Motley it was around the corner, maybe 80 people. It seemed on par with last year. Given that they have 3x as many bottles as last year, I'd expect it to last a bit longer (last year it sold out in 5 hours).
They left a comment on an Instagram picture saying they have 2500 bottles left at 1pm. At this rate, it may sell just as fast as last year.
Selling 1000 bottles in 120 minutes is 8 bottles every minute. Perhaps everyone is buying the max allotment?
Gotta also remember this year they are serving bottles at the brewpub, rather than draft. That means some of those 3956 are likely put away for pubsale and, hopefully, future Cru Days in the future. I suspect from what I've seen that this one will age nicer than last years (which I loved to death when it was super fresh).
I think they could actually sell out quicker in the future if they had either a faster POS terminal or, maybe, just did cash only today. Though I suspect getting (3956 * $12) something like $45K in cash is a little odd.
