    Really? As soon as he said the parts I knew where it was going. It might help to know that this is the valve:

    So when you have carbonated Lost Abbey beers you pour them into a growler and use this device to carbonate them?

    Anyone know if they still have any Keane Idea available for fills?

    I actually have a 500ml food grade plastic Nalgene bottle with the valve stem setup that I have used for this purpose in the past.

    That's it. Standard valve stems for a car. Send me a message if you want one or two. I bought a 50 pack and have many left over.

    Only available in the pub as of yesterday @ 1:00pm. No growler fills.

    Thanks. I tried calling the pub last night but I couldn't get through. Not happy about it, but this saves me the 3 hour drive from LA.

    Hahaha no worries, the shipping cost wouldn't be worth it, I think when I bought them for a pneumatic cannon they were like $2. Plus I have a deficit of lids compared to glass right now, can't really justify destroying one for this purpose, especially when most of my growlers that I actually use are flip-tops.

    Thanks for the offer though, and that's a neat idea.

    Anyone know if they have Nelson bottles available? Ill be close enough to make the run today, but missed out on Nelson the last couple times.

    Thx

    That's correct, both the pub and brewery are closed.

    If you dig a little you can find Nelson around town. I spotted it at a spot yesterday & they had a bunch.

    alright, almost left work today to get my allocation, but thought it would be better to bring a few beer brethren for the 1 hour drive and the 4 bottle limit... here's to hoping

    The last "silent" release sold out in a day I believe.

    Hell it'll probably be gone tomorrow. Unannounced on a Tuesday, this the way to release it; even though it means I'm never going to get another bottle.

    One of the ladies behind the bar (don't know her name, but she's the super-bubbly, friendly, dark-haired one) said that they bottled more than last time. So, there's that.

    And, yeah. I was the only one in there at 5PM. Hope everybody gets their fair share!

    I am going to be making the trip down from the Bay Area to the SD area / Alpine (for the first time) on Thursday and was wondering if they sell bottles in the Pub or if I will have to get there before 6pm when the brewery closes to get bottles. Hopefully the Exponential Hoppiness lasts till then!

    Was he referring to Keene Idea? Silent release and I think was their last silent one. Think it lasted 6 hours though and it was growler fills. Totally different but he might have been talking about that.

    Now that I think about it I might have been referring to Keene Idea. Regardless, I like the silent releases.
