    Just the excuse I needed to leave this graveyard of an office early. I don't think "no one" will miss me.

    I'm not really a fan of Meat Wave either. Maybe just not my style. If I had to choose I'd take 3F Black Heart over it any day.

    i was there a month ago, they had ginger twin on growler fills. right when it was released. Never had sanguis, hopefully they have it.

    SimonesRules Apr 18, 2012 Illinois

    No Ginger Twin. They do have a new Irish Red that I can't remember the name of. It looked like they had a great deal of Sangus. The gentleman behind the counter said that he expected GDDC to last through tomorrow.

    Well I wont be able to get there till opening on Sunday Hoping for GDDC available still. If anyone in the area can grab a pack for me I will meet on Sunday by brewery and bring some special extras for it.
     
  29. Slayer32

    Slayer32 Jan 26, 2012 Indiana

    I think the Irish Red was called Kelly Red, but I may be wrong. Also most of their shirts were 25 percent off. I had a taste of the DGDC for the first time at the brewery and it really delivered. Huge tropical aroma and flavor. Had Meatwave too. I didn't care for it but it didn't stand a chance after the galactic sample.

    Edit: I also asked them if they planned to can more special releases and they said that they are not sure yet and this was just an experiment.
