    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee.

    Did he say when it would come out? Will it be seasonal or "occasional"?

    He said it would be an Occasional. He didn't give me a date though.

    An article in today's Hot Dish said an early April release.

  16. For some reason I feel the can will be the unicorn version once it is unveiled. Can anyone confirm that Surly is for sure using the can with fighter jets, fireworks, etc.? I thought I had seen a recent pic of Omar hiding behind a pallet of cans holding the unicorn can with a shit grin on his face. Possibly on twitter. Could the story of the Fed's declining that art work be BS if April 1st is release date?

    Edit: No pic on Omar's twitter.
  17. I always thought the unicorn version was a joke. The fireworks logo was submitted for label approval.

    The unicorn pic was Surly's joke on us, well, the people who actually thought they would release a can like that, anyway.

  22. I understand that Surly will be following Overrated with their next beer, /thread.
  23. Bringing this one to the top. I'm thinking now that abrasive is done for the year we will be seeing this in the next 6 weeks or so. Anyone else heard any news?

    So I'd assume late May, early April then.

    Sounds like a great addition to my summer grilling lineup. Anyone know the hop-profile?
  27. Not sure what the turnaround on an ipa is in a commercial brewery, hoping it doesn't take more than a month to be packaged and distroed, but who knows!

    Would canned on the same day you get it, be fresh enough Overrated?
