    i'm hoping bottle shop too but guessing it's probably the new brewhouse based on one of PW's more recent posts. although i fear the bottle shop could end my marriage.

  2. Pipeworks already said the new brewhouse should be up and running by 4/22, so that leads me to believe it's more about meeting with their new alderman about the bottle shop (and other things I would guess).

    Well, there's only one Pipeworks and as the old saying goes, "There's plenty of fish in the sea." Better get a good divorce lawyer.

    Saw a nice big truck outside Pipeworks today. Didn't walk down to see what was on it, but only good things could have arrived.

    So that Coffee Break that delayed an engagement...had some funky flavors too it. It was like licking metal tart. I was pretty bummed. It was batch 72, i still have a few more from that batch. Hope they aren't all that way :/.

    I just drank a batch 72 a few days ago and it was fantastic.

    Both of my 72s have been amazing. Looking forward to the titty sprinkles batch.

    had a 72 and thought it had too much coffee. was otherwise tasty.

    Too much coffee? Is that even possible? I honestly have not had a beer yet that made me think, "this has too much coffee." And yes....I am an addict.

  23. Blood of the Unicorn is one of my favorite beers. Only had it once on a trip to Chicago. I think it was the first or second batch ever brewed. Fell in love with that beer. How do you get West Lakeview to ship out of the area? The website says they are still redesigning their website. Wish I had a Pipeworks here in DC, hehe. When I was at WLV the guys that work there were telling me how the Pipeworks dudes met each other at the store. Don't remember the full details.

    Just FYI, i've been delayed in selling Cascade Ninja & Murderous...the store was hit by lightning last night and, aside from blowing a chunk off of the roof, it also took out our phones and internal servers. Internet just went back up, but i cant communicate with the home office computer to update the store's inventory/pricing...which means i cant sell'em yet.

    once everything is updated will these be FwB or avail to the general public?

    Does that mean there's going to be another vav wet box cellar sale?

    Ok we're good to go here. FwB only 'til Monday.
  30. That's just the universes way of saying "don't delay love for some beer bro" ;)

  31. I haven't seen a email yet either. Kind of sucks that I was downtown this morning and had no clue CN was even at Vav's yet! Hopefully I can get in by Monday.
  32. Seems like a short window.

    I'm guessing most FwB have got their allocation from WLV by now, since they got theirs in Tuesday and we've been unable to sell it.

    Am i incorrect?
  34. spicoli00

    spicoli00 Champion (760) Indiana Jul 6, 2005

    No FwB email went out. I pickup at the Binny's Marcie St. drop off, but haven't been over there to see if they have it.
  35. Before your comment about not being able to sell it, I didn't even know that you had to (not) sell. Best I can tell, there's nothing via facebook/twitter/direct emails about either of their new beers coming out. Last time I asked someone about when Pipeworks stuff usually shows up at the Binny's - River North store, the answer was, "Who knows?" I tend to rely on their emails to know when something is new/available.
