    Spring is around the corner so I figured I'd crank this up.

    Gotta say the labels on fresher than fresh look sexy.

    As usual no line, went smoothly. Only tried seeing green but thought it was great

    Wisconsinite here. I'm having dinner with my sister in Jupiter later today. Was hoping to swing by Civil Society, as I've never had, and also heard there was a release there today. Looked it up on Google Maps and it says it's not open until 3. Post above says they got cans with no wait. Can someone chime in and shine some light on their release/brewery hours? Any info would be helpful. Thanks!

    Shmegma is fantastic! Had 4 oz pours of that, seeing green and fresher than fresh. Fresher than fresh is soooo good. Area was packed for baseball. Brewery had all bar stools taken, but still got 3 small pours, 13 4-packs and dropped $250 within 5 minutes. Parking was a hassle due to baseball

    Already regretting only grabbing 1 pack but between grabbing all 4 of the brews and stocking up on Surly, my fridge is stuffed with hops that need to be drank!

    They are releasing cans of Fresh and Subject 12 this weekend. Last time I was there, I had subject 10 and 11 but don't recall seeing a 12 and it's not on Untappd. Honestly, their subject series is hit or miss with my taste buds. This one is a triple IPA. Just find it odd they are releasing a subject can that hasn't been released yet, unless I just missed it

    Heading up now from Boca as I have stuff going on later in day. The tap list right now doesn't look exciting with almost nothing available on crowler. Hoping they pop a new keg or two this morning. Also need me a baseball t

    Sorry for multiple posts but I can't edit after 15 minutes. This batch of Fresh is different from 2 weeks ago. They took out the Amarillo hips. Still just as juicy

    Gonna swing by after work to check out that 12. Friends are telling me it's great.
    They are killing hops and the labels lately have been awesome.

    Had Social Lube at the Barrel of Monks party. Pretty good but wasn't blown away by it.

    I was not a fan of the last Aslin collab, Ballina, hope this one is better. Also Marlins last spring training game starts at 12:05pm on Saturday so parking will be a mess if you plan on getting there when they open, but at least there's no special Abacoa events.

    What are the lines like for this place. I remember seeing some posts with pretty long lines. But i think that may have been the first or second can release. Thinking about driving down from Orlando.

    I've been to 3/4 can releases. The only time I remember a line was for Dank star. Only reason I think there was a line was first time canning and they had special glasses. It may have also been the first or second time they canned Pulp. I don't think any of their cans sell out same day.

    It seems like there is always a few people lined up at opening, I'm usually there so I can get in and out early. And usually there is people opening/sharing bottles if there is a line.

    There was a longish line for the bottle release, but that was a bit of an anomaly

    Agreed, Pulp is on point. Gator Farm is good, but need to try it again out of the can for a better analysis.

    I'm such a schmool. I only got 1 4-pack of Pulp bc grabbed Gator farm, fresh and social lube as well so didn't want to overload fridge with hops that need to be drank. Should've gotten more Pulp. Fantastic batch. Seems less bitter than past iterations, could be due to freshness or just they keep dialing it in. Gator farm was very very good, much better than balina.
