    I've drank two 4-packs already.

    I was gonna pick up some Hello LA from the Herm tonight but there was only one 4-pack of World Champ left, so I grabbed that instead. I guess I'll have to head to HPB again this weekend, what a shame.

    Excited for peach but cherry is really where it's at. Please satiate my Cherry Spazz withdrawals!

    Went by yesterday to pick up a my allocations and was able to try the cold box and variants. Now I'm not sure if the horrible heat n muggyiness yest had anything to do with my tasting.. I think in order I preferred the base beer still and then peach n then cherry. Peaches were subtle but brought a nice light flavor to the base, but cherry tasted more like pie filling but I'm just not into cherry pie in general. This new batch had a little smokiness that surprised me and did enjoy very much.

    DDH achiever is tasting great right now and decided on a 4 pack.

    Chinatown taplist was incredibly threadbare today.

    Not even any of the Cold Boxes on tap.

    It's been like that for the past couple of weeks from my own experiences. Apparently they have a lot of stuff in the fermenters but the only new thing I've seen is Fill Pils.

    Oh I know, I was there two weeks ago but it seemed like it was a lot more dire now than it was before.

    The amount of cans making it to the Herm on release day seems pretty slacking lately. Been trying to give myself an excuse to hit up my fav OG spot to grab cans and switch things up from the normal Chinatown venture and the last three times I’ve attempted this plan they got so few cans that they were already gone before I could get here.

    Send more cans to the Herm please!

    Also 2015 GJG kicked before I got here. It all hurts so much.

    Not sure if this has been covered already here but per Eater: "Celebrated chef Shawn Pham from Fiona (and prior to that Simbal in Little Tokyo) has a new gig running the kitchen at Highland Park Brewery. He and the team are taking things slow, with plans to roll out new menu items over time at the Chinatown craft beer location."

    After seeing what the menu was like at Fiona, I'm still expecting snacks but maybe more Vietnamese. :confused:

    Cross your fingers for the fried chicken sandwich from Fiona. Shit was BOMB.

    This is a game-changing hire for HPB-Chinatown, if they play their cards right. Fiona's food was delicious, delicious, delicious.

    The pretzel is a big boi and is definitely meant to be consumed by more than one person.

    10/10 would shovel into my mouth again provided they provide a more substantial amount of mustard and/or queso for dipping.

    Reminds me of the one at Easy Tiger in Austin. They make you pay $0.50 for cheese/mustard/butter but totally worth it.

    Can't wait to see what Shawn has planned for the new menu at HPBC.
