    Who is this Glenn guy you speak of?

    In other news Jester King Anniversary Party + Foreign and Domestic + night cap tasting party for jerks × fermented bok choy nose vomit = $100 "incidentals" charge from the Omni.

    <3 Glen

    Names were changed to protect your identity. Maybe I should have done more than add an N to your name ;)

    I don't care. The amount of vomit was epic. The shower of shame didn't help. My name should never be pronounced Glenanuh.

    EDIT: I will not answer to Mike either.

    Wasn't that your name tag one of these times?

    If for some reason Frank Turner doesn't add a Dallas date ill probably head to the SA show as an excuse to go by Freetail

    I was there Wednesday and I didn't see any bottles of Four left. Just RealTail, Porto Gallito, OBR and Soul Doubt.

    Looks like they're resurrecting the Solera project. They got a few awesome batches out of the last one.

    I'm heading down to Austin/SA early March and planning to attack Freetail. A couple questions for anybody with answers:

    1. Will Freetail only fill their own growlers or will they fill any container of identifiable volume (e.g. another brewery's growler)? If they will fill other growlers, any idea if they will fill non-standard sizes like 750ml?

    2. How accurate is the website to the actual beers available on tap/in bottles?
     
  17. Lutter

    Lutter Jun 30, 2010 Texas

    1. Yes. I've had my Uncle Billy's growler filled there no problem.

    2. Yes. Very accurate. They actually project it in the brewpub to show what is on tap.

    They don't care about branding on the growler but I was unsuccessful on getting a liter/750 filled there about a year ago. The bartender tried straight from the tap but it didn't really work out well(no growler fill accesory at the time).
     
  20. jl28r1

    jl28r1 Jan 10, 2011 Texas

    Still the case, I tried to have a 750 filled last week and they were only able to get it about 60% full. They did take care of me on the price though.

    They actually just said probably the first week or two of March. Once again on their Instagram.

    Scott's attempt at making light of a printing booboo... my guess. Whatever the case, "uber rare misprints"... I want one too!

    My BIF ship deadline is Monday March 18th, so I'd like to get a glass by March 15th.

    I don't think it's a misprint so much as it's just bad kerning.
     
  36. FreetailBrewing

    FreetailBrewing Jun 23, 2007 Texas

    Yep, not misprinted, just the nature of the font I used. I don't think it looks quite as spaced out in person, but you can all be the judge! The flow of delicious fluids from the mouth of the goblet has been tested repeatedly by me, and I can assure you it is not affected by the dumb font I picked :)

    I think the way it puts the emphasis on "Wing" looks dope and helps with branding. I personally wouldn't change it and I'm stoked to see you guys have some quality glassware.

    I have absolutely no information regarding this subject, but I can say that with wild ales, they are ready when they are ready, there is no annual schedule for bacteria.
