    Just throwin this out there but I was at the Roundhouse about 2 wks ago and they had cans of Cane and Ebel. I don't know why but I passed on buying any as Cane and Ebel is one of my fav two bros beers. Has anyone had this out of the can yet?

    Any Incinerator sightings? That is the only one i can't find.
  3. CnE is the only year round beer worth buying from Two Brothers and I will have to stop over and check this out.

    Found mine at Ardmore Station Liquors. They had a case of it (still in the box on the floor) when I was there 2 weeks ago.

    im looking for it in lake county or north cook
  6. I think best bet is the odd location bottle shop. Last week in Champaign at Friar Tucks, I picked up the one version I was missing, Take Two. They (FT) had a couple of other 15-15 releases but can't recall which ones. (Other than Redeye, which seems to be the most common.)
  7. I found Bonfire to be the best.
    But I feel like this big 15 Beers thing is killing their other beers.

    The Taphouse has Atom Smasher cans.
  9. Just saw that.
  10. What happended to 15 f/ 15? Did anyone every see #10) Pahoehoe in bottles at stores? And it's 9/6 and haven't seen a word from two Bros in a month...

    Pahoehoe came out, not sure if anything after, still trying to find incinerator lol.

    They posted on twitter yesterday that Lemon Tree Grocery in Downers still had
    some Pahoehoe. They're busy brewing up Heavy Handed right now.

    I tried it at the brewery and 4 out of 4 of us didn't care for it. 2 wouldn't even finish their glass. I have at least 1 of every bottle so that I can host a tasting of all 15 when they are all released...but I just have an empty of Take Two and Pahoehoe as place holders to do everyone a favor.

    Incinerator got tapped at the Taphouse the other day if you're just looking to try it. Not sure where to find bottles, though.
  17. Orchids

    Orchids Aficionado (210) Illinois Feb 7, 2010

    Release party for the first two batches is Monday!

    Also, Lemon Tree had 5 bottles of Pahoehoe left after I picked one up around 1pm today.
  18. The place that used to be Armanetti's on Lincoln (Evolution Wine & Spirits now, 773-281-9463) I believe had Incinerator the last time I was there. Call ahead to be sure though.

    i actually found this to be quite interesting glad i tried it, very much tasted like toasted coconuts!

    I haven't pulled the trigger on this yet but like the idea of it, what didn't you like about it?

    gpawned Initiate (0) Illinois Jun 5, 2012

    That doesn't remind me of what I tried. I'm kinda jealous. I thought it tasted like a very basic lager that had been brewed with Vitacoco instead of water.

    crossovert Champion (765) Illinois Mar 29, 2009

    Pahoehoe was okay, it was coconutty but not over the top.
  23. Not close by, but Friar Tucks in Champaign may still have Incinerator...but call frist.

    Heavy Handed or Heavier Handed?
  32. spookytwo

    spookytwo Zealot (90) Illinois Jun 6, 2009

    Heavy Handed came out Monday but the oak aged version should be released early Oct I believe
  33. Oak aged version?

    From their website. 9/10/12 I hope everyone enjoyed their summer. The weather is finally cooling down and felt like fall to me last night, as I sat outside by a fire pit and shared a new beer we brewed with several of my friends.

    Speaking of new beer, Heavy Handed IPA releases today. Again this year, we will be producing 5 different batches using different wet hops in each batch. Check the lot number on the back label to find out which hop is in that bottle. Lot#2551 is Willamette.

    We will also be producing Heavier Handed IPA with the hops from the last day of harvest. The beer should be available around the first week of October. It will be available in 22oz bottles and on tap.

    Cheers!

    They released it in '09 in 22 oz bombers then in'10 but in those massive 3L Jerobaums. Looks like it's back to 22oz bottle thankfully

    Is this the new one in the series, or just a special release?
  38. Orchids

    Orchids Aficionado (210) Illinois Feb 7, 2010

    I have an extra Pahoehoe (possibly 2) and am in need of:
    #6 - Old 1713
    #8 - Incinerator
    #9 - Philosopher's Stone

    Any chance anyone would be willing to trade/ sell any of the above?
