    Seems only natural to start a thread since the OC/LA release thread is turning into the HPB thread. So, where can I get more Pushin Carts and why is @the_trystero always sitting in the corner at Hermosillo yelling at people?

    I think Pushin Carts might still be available to go.

    I saw it at Sunset Beer Company about a week ago. May be gone now though.

    If you're near Melrose and Highland, check out the wine shop Domaine LA. They stock a small selection of beer, and last I checked (this past weekend), they had quite a bit of Pushin' Carts in stock, along with bottles of All The Yeast.

    Stop stalking me bro.

    And like @EB1 said, Pushing Carts is still available for takeaway. Oh, you'll want to grab some Cart Fetish if it's still available at Monkish, a 69.4% Pushing Carts/30.6% Cart Fetish blend is pretty damned amazing. The hip kids are calling it Pushing Fetishes.

    See you tomorrow evening? I won't yell at you.

    I guess I should post in here. Yeah, Pushing Carts only sold about a little more than half of it's 1,000 or so bottles through Eventbrite presale, you can still walk in and take TO GO bottles. Believe it's 6 per person. Some shops like Sunset Beer company and Vendome Beverly Hills get a couple of cases as well.

    New Griffith J Griffith is on the horizon.

    I drank one on Saturday hoping I could enjoy a fine brew and a fine baseball game (go Mets) but while one was exemplary (the beer) the other faltered (the Mets). Very low carbonation, but the taste and aroma were impeccable. I have one more bottle I will probably wait 6-12 months on but it's definitely drinking well right now.

    As long as Bob doesn't starts canning his IPAs in 16oz containers maybe we can avoid the inevitable shitstorm of beer nerd hype a few months longer?

    No way. Can those IPAs so I can trade them for the brewery-only-BA-stout-with-adjunct of the week.

    I'm dying for some cans. Those growlers get me, I get worried about it holding up another day and inevitably finish them in one night. I'm too far from HPB to hang out often...time to move to HP.

    Aroma is phenomenal right now, but it's uber young. But, yeah, much more coffee but no overextraction.

    Nope, Trystero likes to brag about trying things early because he "roasts" "the" "coffee" for "it". Should be on early/mid next week if all goes according to plan.

    If you get a bottle down the line with a screwed up label, blame Trystero, is all I'm saying. Fella never fully took advantage of learning how to color between the lines.

    Do yourself a favor, get some of that Achiever DIPA. A ton of nelson hops in it. It's so good.

    Damn it dude. I was going to get some, got a Beer Spaceship first, then got distracted hanging out with some BAs out back tonight. And then I had to head on to my next destination. Hopefully I'll get some soon.

    I'll definitely mention that to my brother, who loves IPAs. I've tried a ton of highly rated IPAs and I just don't prefer them. The only IPA I somewhat enjoyed was Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin.

    Crowlers for them would be awesome. If they wanted wider/local distribution, it was also be great if they got in touch with somebody like Beer Monks or another mobile canning operation so they wouldn't have to buy their own equipment and perpetually take up space with packaging equipment. 4 or 6 packs of their IPAs and some of the other beers would be perfect.
