    Yeah, wonder if the other collab is with Great Lakes, Fatheads, or another Hoppin' Frog collab.
    Hell, even Thirsty Dog collab would be awesome.

    In any case, I will be hunting hard for these OH collabs.

    Which means they'll make a Saison.

    Looking forward to this beer. Not looking forward to the pricetag on it. Hoppin Frog shit is always supre expensive. At my local bar they did a Hoppin Frong night (the old beer guy was from OH) The cheapest was like $11 a glass. F that shit!

    From what I understand the kegs are expensive. The bottles are normal price though, around 11 bucks for a bomber of their imperial stout.

    I really only like pumpkin beers with time on them so I thought it was drinking nice.

    Okay everyone....The much anticipated Dan'l Webster Imperial Porter was released today. I picked up a case for myself and some friends. I am enjoying a glass right now with a fine Padron anniversary cigar and I must say, it is simply sublime. Slight burnt tangerines and coffee to the nose, very silky mouth feel with light carbonation. The taste is definite coconut, woody maple, cocoa nibs, coffee and ever so slight citrus notes. This is an outstanding porter being very complex, thick and smooth with great nose and mouth feel and even better flavor than Gonzo porter. Great collab and looking forward to many more between these to great breweries.

    That's awesome...would you consider sending some south for some Funky Buddha or Tequesta growlers?

    i wasn't planning on having one tonight, but i was forced to as one of my bottles was leaking from the bottom, so by the time i got home my back seat had already drank half a bottle :confused:

    it was excellent. i was expecting to be a bit let down, but was pleasantly surprised.

    on a side note, nice cigar choice! those are one of my favorite NCs

    Coming in from NOLA and will be at the brewery on Saturday. Any chance this will still be around? (i.e how much did they make?) Anything else anyone would recommend grabbing at the brewery or in the area?
