    My Full Malted Jackets arrived yesterday. :slight_smile:

    Even with shipping, probably saved on gas, haha.

    Got around to trying the Cosmic Lottery, and it's a winner for sure. I hope they brew this somewhat regularly. Fresh batch of Street 3 is on, as well. One bummer was they had the Slice collab on tap, but it blew before I got to try any

    Gonna head over to the Blendery reopening later today. Looking forward to it

    I’m gonna try and make it over to the Blendery as well. 4 is the latest for me. I like my afternoon pours with lunch. Maybe I’ll see you there? Cheers.

    Megahop 3000 I believe. I'll also be there later in the evening... Guess I'll be missing you Gunz

    All depends on what time my brisket will be done smoking in my T grill. I was hoping for around 1. But it looks like it may be longer. I want to stop by and hang with Harrison. Good guy. Going back to Beach City Brewery days. Great person. Great brewer.

    Edit: Looks like they canned Megahops 3000. Too bad we can’t get any down here.

    Cosmic Lottery is excellent.

    I had it today and excellent is probably too strong a word. It would be a nice addition to year round shit like Amalgamator and Citraholic , but all i could think of as i drank it was that i wish i would've taken an Amalgamator single instead of Cosmic.
    Now if only Mega Melrose was year round...

    Also, new Funk Yeah blend with 4-year old lambic blended in. Can't wait to try that one. Really stoked for it and Greenshift

    Greenshift is fantastic, but let's talk about the new food options. Mac and Cheese and Deviled eggs have returned, but the deviled eggs have been gussied up. Ordered a plate of them yesterday and really liked em. Also ordered the crab fritters which were fantastic

    There's also a fried pork chop and a mushroom farro risotto on the menu I want to try

    Thx for the menu update. I need to get my a$$ over there. In the meantime I’ll grab some Greenshift cans on my beer run today. And some RiiP Detroit pizza to go. Had some delicious Sicilian pizza in Manhattan last weekend. Missing it already.

    Drinking both right now. Interestingly, Lost Time is slightly more mellow... Likely because of the 4year blended in. Both are fantastic but the regular has a little bit more zip to it if that's what you're interested in

    Both sound good. Thank you for the brief review.

    Hoping the draft pours last awhile.

    Update:
    Taking my empty cans to the recycling center this morning, which happens to be right next to the new Beachwood BBQ HB location (in the Meadowlark Plaza-Meadowlark airport back in the days). There’s a lot of activity going on inside. Looks like maybe this year for sure? Maybe end of summer or first part of fall? Signs up on the glass saying coming soon.

    his location is okay. There are some homeless activities going on next to the building. Not a lot. But noticeable on some days. Good luck Gabe and company. I’ll definitely make the mile walk from my house.

    New food update: Had the fried pork chop last night. Fantastic. If you're a fan of chicken fried steak, this will be right up your alley

    New anniversary ipa on the way. Electrohop. Sounds like a Kraftwerk song. 11 years. Is this right? 11 years for Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach? Congratulations to Gabe, Lena and Julian.

    Long Beach Post posted a video on IG today touring the new Bixbeachwood. Looks like it's opening on Friday. Food trucks for now, for those wondering about food options

    Yeah. Obviously the booze won't be ready for a while. The video showed quite a few tap handles, though, and some barrels already sitting in the brewhouse

    Reporting live from Bixbeachwood: it's packed. 24 beers on tap. Still should arrive in a few months. They're going to focus on vodka, gin and rum as whiskey is too time/space intensive

    Beachwood shows their soon to be Beachwood Beer & Pizza in HB coming Summer 2022. Well summers coming to a end soon. New west coast, Party Crusher ipa on September 8. Picked up their newest Sole Magic cans today at Windsor. This should be interesting. Only a 5.5%. What happen to 7.1?

    edit Zwanze Days coming on 9/24.

    Since it was a collaboration with HOKA, I think they were going for a post-run kind of beer so session IPA fit the bill.

    Then it should go well with a DDH timbo pils & death coast on a hot day. I’m still waiting for that 2022 dog day afternoon.
