stopped by after the cubs game, cans are long gone but I snagged two crowlers.
Any insight as to if I can stop by on lunch to pick up some Squeezit crowlers, or has the keg tapped?
I was there last night around 6pm and it was still flowing. Some other nice options on tap, too.
Thanks for the replies. Got my cans, pretty great stuff.
Hey Everyone, we’ll be releasing Color of Life our DDH Double IPA that took silver at this years GABF tomorrow evening. That makes five hazy beers on draft!
I have never been prouder of where my wife chose to eat on her birthday.
Also, Cosmic Juice Box cans next Friday (10/20)!
As yummy as it is, I'm still holding out for Cosmic Juice Box to actually be put into juice box format...
The original tap version I had was great. Will this be available to go in crowler as well?
Friday, 10/19 or Saturday, 10/20?
Everybody trying to be copy-editors here
No, just hoping it was Saturday so I could actually buy some for once!
So clever to leave off the period in that sentence.
Hmmm...lunch plans may have changed for 10/19. Someone help my brain, what time are can releases again?
They have varied...sometimes right at open, and sometimes mid-afternoon. I think they have mostly been at open (or maybe Noon), though.
Color of Life isn't my favorite of their beers (Squeezit, probably), but it's damn good. One of their best for sure.
5 DDHs! I need to make a Corridor run.
@dubo09 got a release time on cans for us?
Their website is showing 10/19 11am for the release.
General question - how kid friendly would corridor be around 4:30 Saturday? Have friends in town, we both have 2 kids. Considering Southport for early dinner options
I don't see why it would be a problem; Corridor is usually a pretty mixed crowd anyway, and it doesn't get too rowdy.
I think you're fine. I generally try to go there more for brunch/lunch on the weekends if I go with kids, but it shouldn't be too bad at that time. I took my kids there at 6-ish on a Friday when they put a bunch of their BA beers on tap, and that was fine. So, I think 4:30 on a Saturday should be fine as well.
While not crowded, will it be crowded at that time?
I haven’t been in Corridor in a long time where I’ve thought “I’d sure like to have one or more kids here to try to navigate this crowd and maybe grab this bartender‘s attention”
LOL, It sounds like you're picturing 4 adults standing behind people at the bar, waiting to get our beer while kids maze through the fermenters and other patrons, maybe grabbing a french fry when someone isn't looking. That's not the case; we'd either be able to get a table and eat there, or, if that's not a possibility, go to D'agostino's for some pizza instead.
I'm assuming it won't be crowded like an hour before first pitch at Wrigley, but mostly trying to confirm that. Sounds like it's worth a shot, but you never know kind of thing.
Lol "first pitch at Wrigley"
(as an aside--I'll be at Corridor around 6, most likely; I won't be staying, probably won't even have a drink, but if you see a guy in a black FFF cap w/gray hooded jacket, say hey)
If there is a wait, we usually head across the street to the Amazon bookstore and the kids love looking at stuff there. It kills 20-30 minutes pretty easily.
Guys, there are like 8 spots in the beer league left, what are you doing here?
Damn. Couldn’t make it today after work. If they last through the night @dubo09 wanna put one aside for a BA’er?
Are people seriously excited to spend $30 to get a growler fill and and the ability to access a buy 9 get one free card? Or am I bad at reading sarcasm on the internet?
In fairness, if you don't go to Corridor that often, no, it's not that useful. But a growler alone justifies about half the cost, and that's before whatever free beers you amass, the 20% off merchandise, free birthday beer, etc. And if you're a Dryhop person (I'm not, since it's not convenient) it's an even easier sell.
For me it's just fun because I'm local, love the place, and love the staff. A free 64 oz. growler of their silver medal NE DIPA ain't nothing to scoff at, though!
11am on Friday.
Cans gone about 12:30pm. Color of Life is delicious. That is all.
Well executed release today for CJB cans. The crowlers and growlers we’re flying out the door as well. CJB is tasting great and good to run into both @eppie82 and @flat_lander while I was there.
The best/worst/funniest part was overhearing two people having a discussion at the bar that touched on topics such as:
Having to get 6 family members to More tomorrow to pick up BA Karma
Having their Mom come wait in line with them in line at Rev today, but having her wait in the car if the weather is bad
Talking about another city/state beer scene and how they don’t like Chicago people, but not sure why
I will now never doubt any level or beer shitlord-ness.
Maybe I'll check out the Chicago wine scene...do we have a good wine scene here?
My mom usually makes me stand in line for her second allotment, I never get to wait in the car.
Color of Life is excellent but I actually preferred Triform. A little more bite.
