    Limit one on everything, as I understand it... Going to be extremely tough to score growlers.

    They still had plenty (30 or so) czar jack and twisted trace tickets around 4 so maybe call tomorrow and see if they still have any.

    They still have growlers of Twisted and Czar jack if anyone is interested. They are charging $33 dollars now. I thought it was $30 on release day?

    I'm headed to town hall now from bloomington. DoctorRock is claiming the Czar Jack. If anyone wants the Twisted Trace BM me. Hopefully you do so before i get there as i don't plan on making two trips.

    Cheers

    I don't care what the BA abraxas guys say, Mista is a stand up dude! He took a BM from me (a guy he doesn't really know) over friends calls because I sent the BM first! What a great BA!

    Geoff is a solid dude to say the least.

    Geoff- Jason is a solid dude, so good job hooking him up.

  16. Who is stopping by for some Double Barrel Wale Status Aged Jack Frost?

    I'll be on my way soon!

    EDIT: Oops. Thanks, Doug!
     
  17. Soon as in one week from today?

  18. Yeah, that soon! Just getting a little excited ;)
     
  19. should anyone have interest in a manhattan barrel grand cru, I have one I would be willing to part with.

    Read this. Read the Edit. And yet it still didn't click. Headed over last night - for some reason I had it in my head that it was this week, without bothering to consult those pesky "dates". I was shocked to find it so uncrowded;)
    The wonderful silver lining - the Andy's Ale was a-mazing. Similar to Zeelander by TG, and so much better than (the highly vaunted) Nelson by Alpine. Wowza!
    See y'all NEXT WEEK!:)

    What's funny is every day was uncrowded last year (accept Fri & Sat). I'm interested to see if this year will be the same or crazier.

    Anybody know how the growlers are distributed? I have a czar jack waiting for me, but can I only pick it up on Saturday?
     
  23. Mista

    Mista Aficionado (215) Minnesota Nov 10, 2011

    Make sure not to lose that ticket! Yes you can only pick up Czar Jack after 5pm on Saturday. I'm sure you can pick it up the following week as well if you do not have time on Saturday.

    Conviently Doc "forgot" to give his wife the ticket to give to me. We will see if ever shows up.

    I don't know. Mista (Geoff) and I were sitting at the bar when they were pouring 1414 and he broke a bottle of Corona (not even his, he took it from the girl next to him!) and he used the broken glass to slash the tendon in my right leg, just so he could get the first glass. I had to be rushed to the ER. He said he would stop by with a bottle of beer to say sorry... He sent one of his mules with a Sam Adams Triple Bock....

    I don't think the 'after 5' part applies to growlers, I picked up my Twisted Trace around noon on Monday.
     
  27. Mista (Geoff) is a great BA! My car died right before Darkness Day and I thought I wasn't going to be able to make it and out of the blue he offers me a ride! I had never even met him before! I have to mention BigLobo (Brandon) offered me a ride also! You guys are fucking awesome!!!

    Are you sure he didnt' just think you were a homeless mule he could add to his packed van?;)

    Plus hard to overlook the slashing of mbrausen's tendon.

    :eek:

    All right back to Town Hall Discussions - Anyone going for Manhattan Barrel? I look forward to reading the reviews tonight as I am stuck at home.

    MBrausen Savant (275) Minnesota May 24, 2011

    I'll be there tonight. Double Barrel was a bit of a let down. It was good but not great. I switched back to Twisted Trace after one DB.

    Was going to go Thursday, but apparently there's a snow storm coming. Which sounds like a fine excuse to go tonight instead.

    Not "a bit of a letdown". It flat out sucked.

    Double Jack was really tasty I thought. Just way hyped up due to the scarcity, expectations and how incredible it sounded. Expectation: could possibly be the best beer ever. Reality: a tasty and unique brew, but not Town Hall's very best. (IMO)

  34. I found it to be quite enjoyable, imagine an imperial tart of darkness. though I wouldn't sit on mine.

    also had twisted trace and manhattan barrel, both amazing! cheers to MnMoose for hooking up the twisted trace pour! good to see some BA's and hang out a bit!

    Any other reviews of the Manhattan Barrel? Looking forward to trying that one. May try to stop and grab a glass today before heading to get the kids.

    Has anything kicked yet?
     
  37. Much to the consternation of others, I found the double barrel amazing. Lots of wine, obviously infected with souring bacteria, bi whiskey and sour cherry flavor, cocoa undertones- it was amazingly complex and wonderfully delicious.

  40. Bourbon nose, balanced sweet body with a firm malic acid cherry tartness, faint hops, clean boozy bourbon finish, lingering cherry. Fucking fantastic.
