    Anyone know HH's schedule over the holiday week? I can't find their hours on their website.

    Any info would be on their FB page. There schedule is kinda everywhere right now. I don't believe they would be open since it's in one of the owner's home/barn.

    They are canning Musk of the Minotaur 11/29, so that's the only day they will be open this week. 12-5 I believe.

    Thanks for the info, didn't realize it was in a barn on someone's property. Doesn't look like I'll be able to make it, all well next time I'm home!

    Another Ohio brewer I hope to see better distro from in NE Ohio in the future. How's their retail distro in Cbus?

    I'm an HH virgin and I'm considering attending the Musk canning Sunday. What can I expect in terms of prices? Anything else I should know?

    Pricing (as far as I've noticed) for 4-packs seems to be $12.99. Pints are usually $5-6 and growler fills are usually $14+, but you need to bring your own growler as they do not sell them. Also bring some lawn chairs if you plan on hanging out, food if you want it (sometimes they have a foodtruck though) and/or beer too as there are usually plenty of bottle shares. It's a great time!

    Two questions:
    Is it only Sunday they open/release cans?
    Does anyone else think of that damn Extreme song when they see Hoof Hearted?

    So far it seems to just be Sundays, although they were open for draft only on a Saturday a few weeks back.

    How was the turnout yesterday? I assume pretty light, but just wondering.

    Yeah, more calm and relaxed than the last haha. Me and a friend got there at 11:50 and there was a decent line, but it moved pretty quickly and nothing sold out on tap or in cans. Was another fun event, but I'm glad they had the fire barrels going because I was freezing!

    My apologies if this was already answered, but is HH only open on days that they have canning releases? Also, do they JUST have that one beer available? I'd really like to score some Konkey Dong, Roller Blabe and So11, but don't want to waste my time if its not even going to be there.

    Yes and yes. They have other stuff on tap at the release, though.

    Another HH virgin hoping to stop by Sunday. Will they fill 32oz growlers or only 64oz?

    Just follow them on facebook if you have it and they'll usually post if there going to be open on a non-canning release and what they'll have on tap.
     
  17. JohnnyMc

    JohnnyMc Initiate (0) Feb 14, 2012 Ohio

    Yes, as of now, they are only open on canning days (which have all been Sundays). They usually have just one canned release (but there has been one time there were two different cans released and one time with another 750ml). You'll have to keep up with them on FB to see what they're canning next, but Roller Blabe and South of 11 maybe not be available again for awhile. Heard Konkey Dong was coming soon again.

    They also usually have 4-5 other beers available on tap and most you can get growler fills of too.

    They will fill both sizes, but you'll need to bring your own as they do not sell growlers.

    So Everybody Wants Some canning release today... Great beer, reminded me a lot of a more bitter Blabe (which is a good thing). Nice turnout, not as hectic as Dragon Saddle, that's for sure. They didn't run out of anything as far as I am aware. The movie they played from 3-5 was a nice touch!

    Konkey Dong is next Sunday.

    BaronRVH Initiate (186) Jan 18, 2010 Ohio

    They always have other beers available for growler fills (bring your own, clean growler) but they vary. They are canning Konkey Dong this coming Sunday, I believe.

    Remember, their new production brewery opens sometime in January, maybe early February just north of downtown Columbus on Fourth Street.

    We did make it and had a great time. Everybody Wants Some was fantastic and the bottle share was an added bonus. My only small complaint would be that I may have been charged full price to have my 32oz growlers filled. That is the only way I can figure out that 5 pints, 2 4 packs, and 2 growlers would total over $100.

    Food truck was also pretty legit!

    I'm a decent drive from HH so if I was to come this Sunday for Konkey Dong when should I be there by?

    xugrad13 Initiate (0) Jun 20, 2015 Massachusetts

    Get there around 11, stand in line with some cool guys and bring a bottle or two to share. If it's a long drive I wouldn't risk getting shutout. I was there at 12:30 (waited in line for 2 hours) for Dragon saddle and got one of the last cases (drove from Cincy).

    ...Sorry! I think they've only been opened one other day that wasn't an actual canning day. Don't quote me but they do not have normal hours in Marengo. They will in Columbus starting next month!!!

    looking at some pictures of various HH IPA's I notice the substantial amount of haze. Looking at Want Some it looks like straight pulpy grapefruit juice. Does anyone know if they use the same yeast as Heady Topper? (Conan)
     
  33. trevord13

    trevord13 Initiate (0) Sep 30, 2010 Virginia

    My guess would be Conan or an English strain - possible Wyeast 1318? Either way, delicious straight hop juice.

    I am almost positive it is the Conan strain... I kind of wish they would do an IPA with chico or something, just to see what they can pull it off without relying on that yeast (Conan) for it's particular flavor. All their IPA's basically taste the same with varying bitterness levels (IMO at least).

    I'm from Portland and had two cans of Musk of the Minotaur in Columbus this past weekend. I really like IIPAs if they aren't overly sweet or unbalanced (we can get sweet in Oregon but our breweries are masters of hopping so they aren't unbalanced if you like that style). That was a delicious beer, one of the better new IIPAs I've tried in a while for sure. I also managed to try the Jackie O's Bourbon Barrel Barleywine at the MLS Cup tailgate. Those were clearly the two best Ohio beers I had over the weekend.

    If you're wondering what a chico strain would be like then look no further then Musk, SoE and Dragonsaddle! Haze comes from yeast but it also comes from protein bonds, dry hopping with lots of pellets and other more detailed factors. I like how hoofy uses different yeasts to define their beer brands since the hops will always be rotating.

    Thanks for the info! I only heard they used Conan prior, so that is what I assumed. My mistake!

    I'm imagining from the pictures, they didn't filter Everybody Wants Some? I wonder if I can harvest the Conan yeast from it, if that is indeed the yeast that they used.

    trevord13 Initiate (0) Sep 30, 2010 Virginia

    You could certainly harvest yeast from a few cans and grow a multi-step starter, but you may want someone to confirm the strain before assuming it's Conan.
