Same day releases July 9th. 3 bottle max for FO3, 2 bottle max for Number Crunch

I've had zero success on Eventbrite so hopefully I can score. Also, I can't save a credit card without first making a purchase. So I think I'll find something for a few dollars just so I can get my cc saved for future events.

This year's batch tastes way different than last year's. I'm not too impressed with it this time around.

Spent part of the day at Finback yeterday, really enjoyed their new releases. Was most surprised by the Spill the Tea, which take the IPL descriptor however you want, is very easy to drink. Not much for Green Tea usually but the Melon dominates the flavor.

Both of the new Jester King SPON variants are excellent.

not really, when you consider is was previously 22oz bottles. you get 4oz more. want to say previous was $100 for the two bombers, one glass, and one pour.

will maybe make it easier to trade/trade for given the 12oz format.

Yeah, the latter is definitetly worse. Compared to a $25-30 4 pack of kbs, just seems high. Not saying I wouldn't purchase it if I had a chance though.

compared to others, yes, its ridiculous. given the hype, known quality and demand, i dont think its too bad. limited glassware is often $10-$15 each, and you get a pour, kind of looking at $60 for the 4pack.

luckily, different times for each. wish they would have done FO bottles before the glassware. probably going to go for all three but not worth it just to travel out for the glassware, if thats my luck. wouldnt go for the glassware if i goose egg on the bottles.

Morning Delight Batch 2 was the tits. Morning Delight Batch 3 was bitter AF. It will be a distro beer within a few years...

Sip your KBS Codeblue, I'll stick with Side Project and Hill Farmstead.
