    Four pack of 16 ounce cans, interesting format and curious to see what the price point will be. This format will work a little better for me than the four 12 ounce bottles and the cans look cool.

    I mean I guess the trendy thing is 16 oz cans - but there's not much reason you need that for a 9% abv beer.

    That's the alcohol of 12 oz at 12%. That's the popular format now, but not for my body.

    I see what you mean but for me one 16 oz is the sweet spot for a higher ABV beer, as one rarely seems like enough but two can sometimes feel like too much.

    60 Minute is too bland for me

    90 minute is too malty for my taste even though i like the beer

    120 minute is not something i want a bunch of

    put 75 minute in a 16oz 4 pack! besides Indian Brown ale, 75 Minute is my favoritre DFH beer

    The math isn't that simple, but I see your idea

    Unless the price is the same, I'll stick with the 12oz bottles.

    The world is a better place with Prospect in 16oz cans. Perfect size to split in two tulips at the end of the day. Bring on the 90 Min

    My 4 pack was 9.99 which i thought was a reasonable price. It's a beast of a beer for 16 oz cans though.

    Bottle 4 packs are $8.99 so cans are a nice price.I really like 90 with a bunch of years on it. Might grab cans and see how they age.

    I bought a 4-pack on 10/13 at the brewery. If I remember correctly, it was $9.75. And most impressively, it was canned on 10/11. It was, of course, the best 90 min I have ever had. The maltiness was very subdued and the hops were the show.

    Now you got me wanting to get a super fresh 4 pack. I always get the 90 and its never that fresh, would be cool to drink then age some and taste later, cheers.

    Best glass of 90 min I ever had was when a bar had a DFH event and was pouring it through a Randall packed with whole leaf hops.

    Last i saw they were 12-14 a four pack in my area. Im on the shore so things cost more. It sucks because im not a tourist. I contribute to the area being a destination
