    Great, looks like I'll be getting extra packs for myself and trade.

    Do they usually have stuff in the tasting room that doesn't make it to distro? I love that IIPA, but it's kind of out of the way if it's just going to end up on a shelf.

    This is what is going to be available on Saturday. My personal opinion? Yonder Cities Farmhouse or Colliding Hemispheres growler fill might be worth it. Also, Oak Penn Quarter Porter is really good. If not, you can always get a freakin' case of OTWOA! It will be worth the drive.

    This batch is still brewery-only. We assume that it will eventually hit retail, but for now, you're gonna have to make the trip.

    If anybody wants to trade some out West let me know. I'm in Oregon, looking for 2 cans and maybe some other DC brews or other locals. Thanks.

    I always take 295 down to NY Ave, and then cut back around behind the new Costco. Then South Dakota Ave back to 295 to 395 to head home..

    Why the price hike on OTWOA since last release?

    They said that Falconers Flight Hops are harder and more expensive to come by... I don't know if that is a lame excuse for a hype tax or an valid excuse. I don't homebrew so I can't comment of the availability of FF Hops

    I suspected FF was the culprit. The last release was growler only. Premium growler fills are $13. I understand canning is more expensive than draft, but I doubt it adds 25%

    I would gladly pay $5 more for 8 more ounces if I don't have to drink all of the beer in one sitting as I would with a growler. Can we quit bitching about the prices people!? Cans of OTWOA!!!

    Im at a crossroads. I really wish they could tell me the abv of Yonder Cities so I know if I should get Colliding Hemispheres, Yonder Cities, or Corruption.

    Either way it's 12 cans of OTWOA, and a growler fill of something.

    That beer is really good. I picked up 6 last weekend, a couple for me and a handful for trades, and plan on scooping up a couple more on Sat.

    What are you talking about? Last time it was $10 for a bomber and growler fills were $25 (prior to that they were $13 though).

    If my math is correct, $10 bomber = $0.45/oz. $18 6 pack = $0.25/oz. Yes please.

    My plans got all sorts of messed up. If there is anyone who can pick me up 2 x sixpacks of OTWOA and a bomber of Oaked PQP I can either paypal you before hand, or bring money to an exchange.

    Live in VA, work in MD (Greenbelt/College Park area) so will come to you if you can help me out.

    Beyond pissed at this spanner in the works

    I also would like to say a massive thanks to MattNelson, I had planned on going in but due to a last minute unforseen spanner in the works I couldn't make it.

    Came up big for me. As was said in A streetcar named desire, I have always relied on the kindness of strangers.

    Fantastic

    Still cans available? My buddy can't get there until this coming Saturday. Still looking for just a 4-pack if anyone would like to work something out.
