Nice to try a new Texas brew here in San Antonio. Not a bad Imperial IPA
Tasty beer. Nice moves Team San Antonio
Drink it up! The brewer told me they lose money making it, so I dont know that it will be back again "as is"
Hmmm, I only need one more beer to lock up my third plate. Great timing!
Well. I just so happens that my buddy brought me a bottle of this stuff today as well. It was $18 for a bomber in Dallas. Kind of pricey - not sure how they are losing money on that. Now that I got to try it on tap, I'm probably gonna trade it or save it for a bottle share.
When you think about how they lost money, you have to consider the fact that it was double dry-hopped. Its a big beer with a lot of hops and it occupies a tank for a long time. For a small brewery, in particular, that holds up a schedule and adds to the cost by reducing output.
Most Dream Crusher was kegged. Only a few bottles were filled. I think they only bottled 300 bottles - all by hand with a Blichmann beer gun. So those are going to be expensive.
I understand that they have purchased a bottling line, but I it has not been delivered yet.
Plus, factoring in the cost of all those hops, it really is an expensive beer to make. Yes, they mentioned having a bottling line that would be going in, and were hoping to start having output by the Fall.
