    perhaps the wrong attitude to take
    but for these locations' sake
    ill leave some of the mystery
    Kanger's map and ye shall see

    Corner of 5th Ave & 9th St, NYC 11215 (Owl Farm, Brooklyn)
    Corner of Broadway & W 101st St, NYC 10025 (Broadway Dive)
    Corner of Bowery & Delancy St, NYC 10002 (Guessing One Mile House)

    That'd be a tough walk.

    I would also assume that all of these Wednesday events are keg tappings rather than bottle sales, especially given the locations, but I'm assuming more info will come out as the date nears.

    I was thinking the same thing. Most likely that, with Top Hops doing the exclusive bottle sales on Friday morning like last year.

    Yep. And hopefully they'll at least have everything in stock this year so that I don't have to shlep back down to pick up my Vanilla Rye bomber!

    Exactly! Although it wasn't so much the shlepping as it was the impatient wait for them to arrive.

    Its showing on the Goose island website that Vanilla Rye will be in 4 packs.

    I got there at 8 and was about 20-25th in line. Once the doors opened it was pretty much in and out since they had the allotments already bagged up for you. No draft was tapped until noon IIRC, but I had to head out of town anyway.

    I would assume that's a misprint based on the label:

    I got there at 7:30. That said, I think everyone who was there by 9 got an allotment, if not more. For sure everyone got the regular, coffee, and barleywine, just not sure if latecomers got the Cherry Rye. Given the absurd time of day and year, though, I would assume that if you're there by 9 you'll be fine.

    believe it was 4xBCBS, 2xBCBCS, 2xBCBBW and a voucher for one of the bombers

    But that was an actual goose island event. I bet we don't see that this year.

    Yea, last years top hops event was on the goose island website.

    I think you underestimate Ted. I'd be willing to bet there is a similar event this year.

    taestee Initiate (132) Dec 12, 2012 New York

    the black friday event is on at top hops... it's on the goose island website i believe.
     
  21. Moopband

    Moopband Initiate (0) Jul 20, 2010 New York

    Yeah didn't Ted use to work for InBev who owns Goose Island? I think that why he always gets Goose Island events.

    Your right it is. I didn't scroll down far enough. See you all there.

    We at One Mile House will be doing at least 10 taps of Goose featuring vintage and variations of Bourbon County. There will also be bottles but only for on premise consumption. Our awesome neighbors at Top Hops are the official off premise event on Black Friday. Look forward to seeing you guys there!

    Awesome, figured this would be the case.

    Are you going to be announcing a tap list before the event, or should we just anticipate a killer line up? (As if it'd be possible to have anything but...)
     
  26. OneMileHouse

    OneMileHouse Initiate (69) Dec 14, 2011 New York

    Full Tap List will come soon but I can tell you that at the least expect these on draft.
    2014 BCS
    2014 BCS Barleywine
    2014 BCS Coffee
    2014 BCS Vanilla
    2013 BCS
    2013 BCS Barleywine

    There is more, and more coming.

    If I'm still in the city that day I'll be there. Glad One Mile House got an event like this. Great bar.

    Has there been any confirmation that Top Hops is going to be doing a Black Friday release? They aren't showing up on GI's events page, and they haven't yet posted anything about an event.

    It was up there a weeks ago, thats not a good sign.
     
  31. MisterBisco

    MisterBisco Initiate (0) Feb 18, 2009 New York

    Yeah, that's what I thought I remembered as well. It'd be bizarre if they skipped NYC, though.

    That said, there are two Boston entries with the exact same entry, so I wonder if somehow the NYC info got copied over with Boston info.
     
  32. taestee

    taestee Initiate (132) Dec 12, 2012 New York

    the second boston entry points to a NYC map so that is what mustve happened

    Top Hops just confirmed with me via twitter as well, so we're on. They say details to come in the next day or so.

    Honestly, it was a really well-run event last year. Get there early, hang out in line, shmooze with the GI rep and the other nerds, then head home with a bag full of tasty beer. Just cold.

    Went to the Top Hops event last year. Very well run and organized. Grabbed my beer, ate some breakfast at a restaurant up the street and then came back for beers. Great stuff.

    kjrod20 Disciple (380) Jul 16, 2005 New York

    I completely agree. They also handed out glassware and the coffee they used in the BCBCS prior to the doors opening. Very well run release.
