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

    Really small line inside. Took me 5 min to get in and out. Also have their next collaboration beer brewed with oranges and beets.

    18 bucks 4 pack. Lots in fridge.

    No growler fills. Samples only. They withheld having kegs at the brewery to distribute more to bars in the area.

    Just left. Still a small line. They also have bombers of Sanguis (Next collab) for $8.99. Grabbed 2 of those:

    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.

    tons of DGDC-18/4 PACK Limit 1
    MEATWAVE-16/4 Limit 2
    ALL Growler fills were 16/12 (DC, OA, Gossamer, and a new irish red ale)
    bombers of Sanguin (brewed with beets) for 8.99
    and some new badass beer steins.

    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.

    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.
