Brew Hub, say it ain't so!
Have these guys posted a draft list in a while? I’m heading down to Tampa tomorrow and don’t want to waste my time going to to St. Pete unless Cycle has some BA on draft.
I'm cautiously optimistic. I would hope Doug wouldn't be doing this if the quality wasn't up to par. I wonder if they are moving draft production as well? We will know soon enough.
I couldn't be any less excited for those Cycle cans... hard, hard pass for me!
Just saw a picture on untapped and it doesn't look like any BA beers on tap. Do they ever have BA beers on tap other than days of a release?
Cycle has consistently had BA on tap since their anniversary this year. They currently have six BA beers both on tap and in bottles. Rare 1, Hazelnut, C+C, Rye Wheat, Stay Fancy, and Oh My Goodness. They're trying to always have BA available in bottles and draft, and the move to have their core distributed beers brewed at Brew Hub is another move towards that.
Thanks. I figured they had to have something.
DrinksAlone, they always have their BA taps on the other wall. I messed up my first time there by not paying attention to it. Very regrettable first experience.
They have tons of BA beers on tap, always do, especially lately.. BUT... They have the worst fucking format on earth for them and ONLY allow full pours. Full pours make it pretty much impossible to try more than 2 of the beers at a time when you go in, which is shitty.
Agree. And they don’t let you taste before you buy and it’s 10-12 bucks a pour.
They usually don’t put them on the draft list, but on the chalk wall near the front bar...
Let’s not get crazy, they don’t always have them on draft. I’d say half the time. But I’m guessing that will get more frequent as they move the non ba production to brew hub.
Never been there when at least one BA wasn't available. Maybe I am just lucky.
Funny I've never been there when they are on. Feel like it's only really been the past year they've made them more available...
They have a separate board with the BA beers, so you probably just saw the board with the other stuff. Tried uploading a pic from untappd with the BA taplist but don’t know if it worked
I stand corrected but I have never been in there when they had more than one BA beer on draft and that is usually one they released earlier that week in bottles.
I will admit though, that I rarely go in there to drink, usually just to buy bottles. I guess I may need to roll in there for a few pours moving forward.
The "Rocky Road DOS" they had on tap for a few weeks after the anniversary was a fun way to see what people think about Scooop when it's detached from the hype
Thought Scoooop was Neapolitan flavor not rocky road?
There wasn't much Rocky Road flavor in this so-called "Rocky Road". Was a lot of chocolate, vanilla, and raspberry though.
How does flavor factory compare to previous cycle releases utilizing coconut?
In my opinion greatest hits coconut was better. That’s the only other Cycle coconut I’ve had though. I wasn’t very impressed by C+C. It was good, but not what you’d hope it could be.
thanks for the info.....my benchmark for them is the trademark dispute coconut bottle that was fantastic....was hoping for something along those lines.
Cocodamia (5th yr anniversary beer) was excellent, with coconut floaters galore. Wish I had a couple more bottles
Not Cycle related but am I the only one who is not a fan of the new Marshal Zhukov labels? The older labels were always very distinctive, and these blend in on the shelf.
It's okay... This is CCB/cycle thread :-)
I don't mind the label.
Edit: is that a 750ml?
It looks big next to the 12oz FB, but the shelf tag says 22oz. That's what CCB says it is putting out. It's in the cooler at CCB for 14.99. (11.99 El Cat price). 4 years ago, I stood in line at CCB for two hours to buy MZ, and was lucky to get some, as it ran out soon behind me. It's still a great beer, but it needs to join its cousin, Ten Fidy, in 12oz cans.
My preference would be tall boys if they decided on cans
Stovepipe of BA Zhukov would be incredible but definitely won’t happen. One can dream I guess
CCB's site shows BA Big Sound available for carry out. Can anyone confirm that this is a new batch.
It is not,it’s the 2016 version. They have done sensory and feel it’s still drinking great.
Aside from that go pickup some cans of in bed by nine, be NE style IPA... good stuff on par with Nightmare confetti at a lower abv
Are they still selling them with the glasses no one wanted or have they gotten the message an overpriced BA Big Sound gift box was a bad f'in idea?
I am trying to find this glass, or just more information regarding the glass. How available was it when it released and where should I even start to look for it? I tried mbc/ebay with no luck.
Would this be considered to be a MSRP trade or are these glasses pretty sought after?
Thank you very much!
I don’t think it’s very sought after. I bought mine at the brewery months after beer week. They might even still have them.
They were for sale as recently as 3 weeks ago when I was last in there.
Thank you everyone, I appreciate this information!
Can't believe the quality of beer you can get from Cycle right now walking into the taproom. BBA Baltic Porter, Hazelnut, Stay Fancy, Rare 1, and Caribbean Rum BA w/ Coconut are some of the best beers Cycle's ever released IMO, and they're so easy to get. The other beers available are all great too, 10 in stock right now.
They are great beers. They only sit because there’s no trade value anymore. If all you’re looking for is to enjoy a nice BA stout they are always a safe and excellent option.
Hazelnut is the best IMO but most are definitely not worth the price
