    Please feel free to post release dates for upcoming releases here, pics, whatever.

    Yesterday, 6/18/16, Aslin beer co sold out of master of karate in roughly 4 hrs with a 64oz per person limit. Roughly 80-100 people happened to be there as they opened. Just want to shout out and say congrats to the crew at Aslin, we love to complain but we appreciate all the hard work you guys do to get everyone in and out as fast as you can.

    6/23/16 -- Astro zombie & double orange starfish will be released

    Tried a couple Aslin crowlers(Astro Zombie and Mind The Hop) a month and a half ago and loved them. I've been checking this forum day to day looking for a topic about them. Didn't want to create one because I thought maybe they would stay lowkey a little bit longer and I'd have a shot at acquiring more of their stuff before it starts trading at a ridiculous price. After last weekends release, I think my chances are very slim of finding it easily anymore or at least until they can increase production significantly.

    How crazy was it there last weekend? I'm visiting a friend in DC in August and was hoping to swing by Aslin on Sunday for some crowlers before heading home. Is the hype train at the point that that might not be possible?

    Probably, unless they double in capacity by August.

    It's totally possible and not too difficult. The next question is what is your time worth? Do you have kids and in-laws that you're juggling? Or are you single and bored? Its getting to the point that if you're time is too valuable to wait 1.5-2 hrs, you might have better luck just going in and drinking at the bar. Not having a wife and kids does wonders for my capacity to wait for beer.

    someone told me the double orange starfish releasing thursday will be in-brewery only, nothing to go. no crowlers, no growlers. i don't know how credible that information is. right now that is just a rumor. i want to confirm/ deny this because i am thinking of driving out there after work thursday to pick up crowlers.

    the hype train has pulled into the station. they have been closed the past two sundays (unplanned) because they have run out of beer entirely by saturday night.

    I hope they manage to up production and maintain quality. Their beer is so damn good.

    He said Sunday, I don't think they'll have crowlers on a sunday for a while.

    So who's going to be in the DC area August 12-14 and wants to trade me Aslin crowlers for Tired Hands/Trillium? Ha.

    Any idea if this would be just for the Double Orange Starfish or also the Astro Zombie? I too am trying to figure out if it's worth my time to head out there on Thursday after work, but I'm not about to sit in traffic for an hour just to drink a couple of beers.

    FYI, looks like there will be crowlers of Double Starfish but very limited, 1pp and only 60 total:

    What time do you think you'll have to get there for a growler of Double OS? I'll be up in the area for work but probably can't get out before 4-430.

    How much are the crowlers of beer at Aslin? Assume there is a difference depending on beer - right? Thx!

    Any reports that? Wondering if the chaos is the new norm, or an anomaly b/c of the beers that had been released the last few weeks.

    Out of towner here. With just the one crowler released tomorrow should I expect it to sell out quickly? Or if I showed up mid to end of the day would they have some crowlers remaining? Thanks in advance!

    i am planning to go tomorrow and i plan to get there before they open at 11am. that being said, they've never released laser raptors before and it is an unknown quantity. there were no lines on thurs for the release of the stout and berliner and in fact they are still pouring crowlers to go for those today. i am hoping they make it to tomorrow as well. a lot of locals are out of town already, so there is a shot. i can post an update on the line tomorrow when i get there. Aslin just posted a pic of laser raptors on FB and it looks murky AF.

    Thanks, and yes it does. Crazy hazy! Yeah do they normally not disclose limits? I'm not sure what the advantage to doing that would be. Thank god they pre fill now, that has to make the lines fly
