    I would love to have a tour or see the packaging phase of a lot of our brands. It’s honestly SUCH a crucial part of sales/brand power, and am very interested in seeing the process.

    Man, so my friends buddy who brews at bells made five beers for this party on Saturday and they were all killer. He did not make the final one on the list (made an 8% NEIPA with THC in it that he gave as a gift to everyone that came).

    Y’all, that Ecto Cooler wheat beer was amazing. If that was released commercially that would crush!

    soooo didn't know this thread existed tbh

    Grimm is hands down my favorite brewery right now. stopped by for their 1 year anniversary of the taproom and picked up the special edition teku glass they had on sale. patiently waiting for Evil Twin to finish their taproom.

    Picked up a 4-pack of their "painkiller" cocktail inspired berliner last weekend. Way too adjunct heavy from them. But that Bissell collab looks great.

    Grimm's "Door" series - Butterfly, Canopy, Suicide, Lambo is pretty damn good. I would probably say its in their top 3 IPAs with Splish and Tesseract. Went to 0 Anniversary when they opened. I will still get Grimm's stuff, but don't get over to the taproom as much as I would like. I live on the Other Half side of Brooklyn, and Grimm is a pain in the ass to get to by subway.

    I really love the Magnetic IPAs too, recently had Magnetic Compass and it was amazing. I have yet to have Splish. I'd like to get to Other Half more than I do so I feel you on that. I was extremely happy when Threes opened up their outpost in Greenpoint so I don't have to trek to far. Just moved out to Bushwick and down the street from KCBC, things could be worse.

    I have the benefit of being a 5 min walk from Threes - Gowanus. I get most of the Grimm stuff (sans bottles) from their shop.

    Going out to Indiana this weekend. Gonna go to Upland, which I'm super stoked about, but now I'll have to keep an eye out for 3 Floyds stuff.

    Any of the NYC-area crew going to be at Other Half tomorrow morning for the can drop?

    Maybe. Was gonna go to Suarez and my fiancé now doesn’t wanna go.

    @Anthony_ would you consider meeting up if you go?

    Suarez is also a solid move tomorrow, they're putting out some crazy good-sounding stuff today.

    Yeah for sure! I'm probably just going for the can drop but having a line buddy is always a good thing.

    Hudson Valley also has four crazy awesome releases tomorrow. There's too much great beer and not enough money or time.

    Yea, that’s why I really wanted to go up to Suarez tomorrow. Crispy Little is fantastic and it’s nice to see them finally can a non-Pilsner. That and I’ve always wanted to get a bottle of their fruit beers.

    For HVB, this batch of silhouettes did not sound as good as previous ones. And to make matters worse, Folksbier (5 min from Other Half) is canning their raspberry sour again.

    Re: Hudson Valley, I really like the way that Coffee Cream Silhouette sounds, and also that farmhouse sour bottle sounds sick too.

    I had a 2016 vintage of Suarez's Summer Whoa peach beer at the brewery and it was one of the best beers I've ever had in my life. I also brought home a bottle of the Leifer, the rhubarb one, that I haven't opened yet. They're doing insanely good work up there at Suarez.

    I haven't been to Folksbier yet! I should try and get over there at some point.

    I have gotten my fair share of bottles when I have gone up: Call to Mind, Domain 2, Backroads.

    In all honesty, if you go to Other Half tomorrow, its worth the 5-10 min walk to Folksbier. You won't be disappointed.
