    I couldn’t locate the current Civil thread so please merge if it still exists.

    Interesting cans this weekend. I wanted to go up regardless to grab some brews for super Sunday, and have yet to have fresh galaxies so I’m excited for that since I love galaxy hops.

    The porter is intriguing. I don’t think they brewed it once in 2017? Don’t think I’ve ever had a hoppy porter

    Back in CCB's Glory Days they used to brew a really good Hoppy Porter called Jose Marti..hard to make an interesting Porter and that one was

    I'm intrigued by the empty barrel post. Any speculation on the potential beer?

    Will be going to civil society in a couple of weeks. Do they do crowlers of all their beers or just certain ones like the website shows. Also do cans ever last until Tuesday?

    They’ll do a crowler of anything not being sold in cans and not super limited

    The restaurant right across the street, Jumbo Bay Island Grill has a ridiculously good Ahi Tuna steak. I ate it twice in 1 day.

    Visiting the inlaws in Delray and heading to Civil today around 12 for some cans and to have a few beers on draft. Didn't realize they have line shares, makes me wish I had brought some GA brews to share. I will be there in a creature comforts t-shirt, come say hello!

    Out of towner here - interested in hitting up the can release Saturday. Whats the scene like? Do you need to be in line to get cans or can you swing by around noon (or later) and still expect to get an allotment? Thanks in advance

    Depends on release...this one should last the day, maybe until Sunday but keep in mind they open at 11 am (not noon). They're also releasing a glass which is more likely to sell out quickly.

    Cans?...no. Draft? Usually something is available in Fort Lauderdale. Check out Riverside Market/Craft Beer Cartel, Quvo Tacos. They have done can releases at Boxelder in Miami

    Subject 16 is my favorite of the subjects so I will be heading down Saturday morning for cans. I’m excited. Gives me a good reason to skip DFPF!

    Just in case anyone was planning on getting crowlers, their machine is currently broken. Big bummer for me since I drove up to grab some and can't make the can release tomorrow.

    IMO Civil just continues to kill it time and time again with the cans they are putting out and stopping in is never anything but smooth. Went in Friday night on the way to Wakefield and had Cryo Crock, Cars In Space and Winter Camo all which were great. Sat in the couch/chair area with some friends and the bartenders came over to check on us when they saw glasses getting low for refills which I wasn’t expecting. Then came in Sunday around 3 on the way home and was in and out with all the cans I wanted and a draft pour in 15-20 minutes. Being in Tampa I wish I was closer cause I don’t have anything but praise to say about em

    Anybody have any recommendations on the cans being released 3/24? We're only in town that one day. The three options seem sort of weak by Civil Society standards (?)

    JerryIsAlive Initiate (151) May 30, 2012 Florida

    Try 4oz pours and then decide what you want cans of. The Fresh variant sounds great. Also think the Pilsner sounds great. Their first?

    I need to go right at 12? Is it better to wait until later in the day?
     
  28. JerryIsAlive

    JerryIsAlive Initiate (151) May 30, 2012 Florida

    My plan of attack is go at 12, sit at bar, order beer and wait for line to dwindle. As soon as line ends, they’ll sell you cans to your seat.

    I was there for the Pulp and Baby Giraffe release 2 weeks ago. Maybe 20-30 people there right at open, but that may depend on what they release. Pulp was excellent. Baby Giraffe was decent, thought it was falling off a little quick in the cans. Like Jerry said if you get there at opening and there isn’t a crazy line you have time to sit and try what they are offering and not have to worry about missing out on cans

    Might as well drink while waiting for cans!

    20-30 people isn't bad at all. I'm staying just 2-3min away so I dont need to be there right at opening. I was over there on Tuesday. Pulp was awesome but I opted for a crowler of Tracks. When I was down last September they originally released Tracks as Subject Sixteen and I brought a bunch home. Really great beer.

    Looks like Navy Camo is being pushed back to the next release, hope they do a 4/20 Friday release instead of Saturday next week.

    Why do I always miss the bottle releases?! King Gary loves coco @ 25 per, 2 pp, and the extra pulp and tracks too! And I’ll be in Miami :-(

    BA Gary was legit. Heard about 300 bottles produced.

    The Camo from last week was amazing, glad to see it available again today. Haven't tried the navy yet.

    I have not had too many of Civil Society's Porter and Stout offerings. Last time I was there I tried Fade Away which was good, and In the past I think I tried a variant of gary loves the coco (may have been blueberry?)

    How long do you guys expect this sour ipa to last today? I'm coming into town tomorrow and was hoping I'd still be able to score some cans..tuesday release has me a little more hopeful, but 3-4pks pp makes me think it was a small batch..any info is appreciated. Thanks!
