    I heard the ballet school lady was whippin it even harder than usual, she's still the #1 suspect for the fire marshall calling as well, no doubt.

    Glad to hear it's going smoother than before. I'm personally still waiting for 2 or 3 successful releases with 'the DIPAS' being on the list before I return, but this sounds like a step in the right direction!

    Got on line at 3:03, like Goobawl said, maybe 60 in line. I was back in my car at 3:28. Very well run.

    Why don't they offer ballet school lady some free beer? One taste of Orange Starfish and she'll stfu forever.

    Leave it to NOVA to punish success. A brewery comes along and blows everyone away and this is how they get treated. Lots of lessons can be learned from this case.

    How long is the typical wait for a growler line on a Saturday?

    How long is a typical growler wait on a Sunday? I was hoping to arrive at 1 and leave by 3.
    Is it reasonable to expect a 2 hour total process time?

    I'm also bringing in RAR's strawberry milkshake imitation they're releasing this weekend if anyone wants to trade for it.

    Why must you insist on trading? How about some sharing? Or is that not how we do it anymore?

    You can't drink on aslin' property is that not correct?

    Just depends. I went at closing last Saturday and had no wait and all beers still available.

    Its also great for skiing, I guarantee your normal growlers can't keep your hot beer hot all day in those conditions.

    I usually open the lid (so the pressure doesn't build up) then actually set it right on the burner. Once you see steam coming out of the top, immediately take it off the burner and get the cap right back on. Nice, hot DIPA all day. Yum!

    I've never been to Aslin before, and I saw on a Yelp photo that 32oz IPA fills are Crowlers only. Is this still the case? Thanks for any information.

    They haven't done crowlers in a while, not sure if they plan to do them again in the future. Recently they have just been filling growlers with a limit of 128oz per person, 64oz per beer. They will post details for each day (typically Thu-Sun) they are open for growlers fills on social media, usually day of. Also, they won't fill long skinny neck growlers but anything else is fine.

    She's actually not the #1 suspect for the fire marshal caller...it's another business on that block though that has been the biggest culprit for calling...I don't think she's called at all honestly.

    They actually had a bunch of crowlers pre-filled, including their sick new art work slapped on 'em.

    $9 Astro Zombie crowlers? i mean come on

    Anyone try a can of Astro Zombie? Had a gristy character I didn't recall from earlier batches. Good, but not great.

    It has a noticeable malt presence on the back end. I think it works well. First time I've had this beer though.

    Visiting DC next weekend, and not completely sure about whether I'd be able to get to Aslin this time (in the area about once every month or two). Checked their FAQ and wanted clarification on some things.

    -What do they mean by longneck growlers? Do they mean the HF/TH style 750s? I saw a tweet that they don't fill 750s. May be I haven't seen enough growlers to have seen a long neck 32/64 oz.
    -What's the deposit on a crowler?

    Thanks for the feedback,
    -Shep

    The 32 oz longneck growler is the one Tired Hands uses. Do a google image search for Tired Hands 32 oz growler and you will see.

    There is no "deposit" for a crowler, but they also don't fill crowlers any more. As far as I know, nowhere does deposits for crowlers, but some places charge a $1 fee (a deposit is refundable).

    Any expectations on how early you'll need to be there to get cans? should be a lot more hype this week.
    How early did you have to be there last week to grab cans?

    You didn't have to be early last week, went at 4 and had almost no line and full allotment available.

    thanks. that's surprising. maybe because of combination of no DIPA, low can allotment, and no on-site booze? I expected a line for the first can release.

    There was a line at opening, saw a post saying there were 60 or so at one point but by 4 there wasn't a long line, nobody was waiting outside anyway.

    I bought crowlers of DDH Neutrino and Astro Zombie last Friday.

    Oh really? My bad, I thought they had retired the crowler machine.

    hoppytobehere Champion (818) Aug 10, 2012 District of Columbia

    Me too, it was a surprise. Maybe they have some stock of empty crowlers they're trying to get rid of? Felt like they prefilled some so the line would move quicker at open.

    Please don't bring that up. They are in a suburb of Washington D.C., it works much better this way.

    Stop trying to move this thread. We put it here for a reason. The 'DMV' as it happens to be referred to is a mixture of two states (MD, VA) and the district or Columbia. Don't be an officous fascist.

    VA is considered a midAtlantic state by almost everyone. The real question should be why is their so much discussion of VA beers and breweries in the South Atlantic forum..... Of course the real question is who cares, it is not that hard to bounce between two forums...
