    I'm very happy about it being at 4pm. I always miss out on 2pm releases since I work til 6, with 4pm I have a chance to make it.

    Also really surprised at the people who don't like Bonkers.

    It is the simcoe, one of my least favorite hops.

    They started a little early. Hardly any line at all I already have my beers and it's not even 4 o'clock

    Beer Spaceship is almost gone, Bonkers will definitely make it through the night.

    the monkish release didn't help sales.

    The Monkish release was at noon though, right? I was able to get three 4-packs of each before Beer Spaceship sold out.

    I need to stop buying beer.

    I say as LA Beer Week starts.

    monkish was at 2 and HPB at 4 there was a solid line at the start of HPB, so i'm sure there was plenty of overlapping.

    Looks like last night there were still Bonkers cans at 8pm . . . does anyone know whether they sold out after that? Or if there will be some to purchase at opening today?

    I thought about it but think I'm hitting up sour night tomorrow instead. Hopefully they'll still have some haze around.

    Men at Murk was stellar, I'm thinking due to the Alvarado influence.

    The crowd was kind of insane. Didn't make it in time before West Ashley kicked but the rest of the tap list was/is still awesome. Surprisingly think the Cellador Cherry Saison and Homage Peche et Lavande were my favorites.

    I actually think the crowd was tamer than a couple years ago when they were selling bottles out back every day of the week, and selling Cantillon and other bottles at the bar in addition to the Sour Night list. From 7:30-10 last night I didn't have a problem grabbing drinks or food. All I missed out on was West Ashley. Always one of my favorite LABW events.

    Don't laugh -- I was with someone who has that cilantro-tastes-like-soap issue so I wasn't allowed to order it.

    If they plug their nose, it won't taste like soap.
