    December 18, 2012 Update

    A second batch of Unicorn Galaxy has dropped this week as well as a third batch of Abduction. Both are available now at West Lakeview Liquors and Binny's Lincoln Park.

    We've just got word from our hop supplier that domestic hops will be shipping in mid-January. With that being the case we'll be able to roll out fresh versions of Ninja vs Unicorn, Citra Ninja & Something Hoppy, as well as Unicorn's Revenge!

    Cheers and Happy Holidays!

    Ah, I assumed Willowbrook. No CN there, and they're waiting on Galaxy.

    ETA: Called there at noon today and got the above info.
  11. Has anyone else stopped by Binny's to get their FwB allocation? I was just told (@6pm-ish) they didn't get anything from them this week. The only FwB pick-ups were (last week's) Galaxy Unicorn and Santa vs. Unicorn. The dude at the customer service desk didn't know anything about this week's shipment.

    Yes I was there yesterday. They had Abduction and Galaxy on the shelf. It didn't appear that they kept them behind the counter as usual.
  13. I just assumed it was last week's batch of leftovers from unclaimed FwB allocations. D'oh! This is why I shouldn't bother buying beer when I've taken a ton of cold medicine.

    Gerritt emailed me back and said as much (that they're probably just on the shelf).

    hey,

    just a quick note. we have the Blue Lady glasses here... but haven't anytime with the holidays to start sending them out or do 2nd replies to those who requested one yet. We'll tackle it in January, but those who can pick up locally, swing by the brewery m-f 10am-6pm. or of course PM me and i'll eventually get back to you.

    Hopefully you will get your bottle shop open soon. It's disappointing that I can't get to Binny's to pick up my FWB releases. Just impossible as I live in Indiana. Still waiting for my FWB shirt, etc.

    Had a Galaxy unicorn batch 66 i think it was, had somethign off, I think I had a bottle form the same batch on NYE and it was utterly fantastic. Now I just need some of that Coffee Abduction.

    January 3, 2013 Update

    Hello Friends,

    This week brings us:

    - Coffee Break Abduction, Abduction brewed with ipsento Wildfire espresso and vanilla beans - $10.99/22oz bottle

    - Brotherhood, a Belgian single brewed with fresh citrus zest, this is our collaboration beer with Drew Fox of 18th Street Brewery set to open in Gary, IN, 4.5% ABV, very easy drinking - $6.99/22oz bottle

    Check out the awesome video shot right here at Pipeworks that explains a little more about 18th Street here:
    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects...rewery-giving-gary-in-the-brewery-it?ref=live
    We're not asking for your donations as you've already so generously helped us get off the ground. But the best thing you could do is share 18th Street's kickstarter project with others and help spread the word. We're excited for Drew as he is the hardest working brewer we know and he's been working here at Pipeworks for the past 7 months. He's always the first one here at 7am every morning mashing in.

    Also, fresh batches of Blood of the Unicorn & Froggy Style also dropped today. These beers are at Binny's Marcey St. and available for all FwB.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    So far the glassware has pretty much been for the kick starter backers and the Blue Lady incident. I believe they will have some for general public once they open thier bottle shop (this spring, hopefully?).

    Thanks man! I wish I had the money to help their kick starter. There beer's are awesome!
