    Yes, the manager at Stubs (Jon) used to promote the place very well, & it became a gathering point for us geeks when the scene was a lot smaller years ago. There were people who vowed never to go again after Jon was let go, so that's likely part of it. Another bit might be the newer folks don't even realize it's a good beer bar. It would certainly be easy to be fooled, being a U of M bar & all. And the parking does suck; I've been parked-in in that postage-stamp sized lot before.

    Pretty sure that I met him once, if I am thinking of the right guy. On a slow afternoon, I was in there and a pretty heavily tatted guy was talking to me about the event that he was getting ready for and he bought me a beer and tatter tots (he couldn't believe that I had never had them before). Was he the guy with the sleeve tattoos? Where is he now?

    He moved on to Goose Island from Stubs & now is the Summit rep. I can't remember the ins-and-outs of his tattoos, but he certainly has plenty. He used to show up at events once in a while, but I haven't seen him in over a year...maybe he's busy working (which would be a shame).

    30-odd taps simply isn't an adequate number to pass muster, these days.

  5. Pretty nice list going at Mackenzie Pub
    http://mackenziepub.com/drink/beer/

    Just called and they said it was up to date as of yesterday.
    Don't know if all are still on, but of the 3 that I specifically asked about:

    Cacao Bender - on
    Hopothermia - on
    Fresh Squeezed - ran out (went through 5 kegs this week, but will be getting more soon)

    I love Mackenzies. One of the first craft centered bars I found when I moved here. Haven't been since, maybe, November or December. I love Hercules and want to try some Laughing Panda. Thanks for the heads up.

    Stopped by Town Hall Tap yesterday afternoon and as part of a "Winter in July" theme, they have TH Grand Cru and 2012 Elves Elixir. Bigfoot, as well.

    I will up the ante here a bit and go so far as to say that it is very good.

    Muddy Pig had Stone's Ruinten on tap Sunday, delicious double IPA goodness.

    I was at Haute Dish on Friday and they had a nice little list of Odell since they have a pairing dinner coming up.

    The Tree Shaker was great off the tap, and the Friek was pretty good.

    I'd also recommend checking out Buffalo Tap down in Savage NOW, i was delightfully surprised with their tap selection. They do a few special kegs until they run out, then get new ones. Have had some great selections over the last few months. http://www.buffalotap.com/

    Last night I had Deschutes Fresh Squeezed, Two Brothers 16th Anny, and was surprised at the North Coast Rasputin Nitro-Tap, it was fan-freaking-tastic.

    Not a tap event, but the Ale Jail busted out a serious collection of beers today. They've probably been ransacked already, but I thought it was worth posting.

  25. i saw them post that on twitter and decided it wasn't worth it to try. would have been sweet if you were there and had first go at it, however.
  26. Agreed. It was pretty obvious that everything I really wanted was going to the first 2 people to get there but I still got a BA Bigfoot (which they brought out later) when I arrived at 4:40. The worst is having nothing to do at work and still not being able to leave.

    I feel like they should regulate how many cellar release bottles can be purchased in total when its such a thin release. Maybe I'm just jealous though.
  27. ba bigfoot? nice score! i wouldn't be complaining. I still haven't tracked one of them down. cellar releases are pretty cool. just wished i could actually hit more of them up!

    Just a thought, but when the August version of this thread is made we should incorporate good finds in stores.

    I do like that idea. Is there any way to get info on when cellar releases might occur? That one really seemed out of the blue. Found out about it like 40 minutes later and nearly everything was gone.
  30. i wouldn't mind if they are super good.... like cellar sales or cantillon. but i like this thread too much to have it clustered with posts such as "I just found ruinten on the shelves at so and so".

  32. There will be some more out there soon. We usually post the tappings on the Original Gravity Facebook page or tweet on the Orig_Grav twitter feed. I can throw a comment up on this thread too.

    Any updated word on this? How limited was the supply? In other words; is there any left?

    Still on as of 4 pm.
