Looks like green moss is on deck to be canned tomorrow July 9!!
Saw it on Square Roots Fest’s specialty tap list and got excited. Such a great one first time around.
This one i missed as I was out of town so super stoked to grab this rounds
Also saw Chillin Out Maxin and Relaxin All Cool cans on a pallet when I passed by Miskatonic last week. Those were great the last time they were released.
For me that was where the Hop Butcher hot streak started. They had their 7.5% NEIPA formula perfected at that point when those came out last September and every successive 7.5% NEIPA was a home run.
Nah, they were cranking out fire before that. Remember they dropped Tavern Cut sometime around end of June last summer.
I feel like 7-8% abv is the sweet spot for mass appeal; you get some of the session qualities of a lower abv beer, but there's also enough substance there for those of us who like the huge DIPAs.
I disagree. They were still pretty hit or miss. That is why Tavern Cut was so good. It wouldn't have stood out so much if the prior and subsequent releases weren't so iffy.
Any word on if deliveries will be happening today? For some reason I seem to recall Thursday being their drop day. I'll actually be up in the south burbs and wouldn't mind grabbing a 4 pack of this one.
whaddya know, i recall those being noticeably sweeter and thus my love affair for HB started to wane around the same time
what about Unwind your Mind, Reply Hazy, and Weirdsmobile? I'm sure theres a couple others
Thursday it is.
The fresh prince releases were the worst HB's I've had to date. Undrinkably sweet.
Edit: forgot about lemony fresh that was godawful
Starting the Make Galaxy Bowl Great Again campaign.
(take the god damn vanilla, peaches, and passionfruit out of it)
(also hop it exclusively with Galaxy, no Citra this time around)
That's right breweries for just $99 an hour you can work with Jangoon Consulting. Remember when BeerAdvocates loved your beer? Now they still buy it...but they complain about it. Get back on the right side of BeerAdvocates call Jangoon Consulting TODAY!
A bit cheap for something I put so much effort into.
I could just pitch them ideas for a year just to have them tell me they're going in a different direction, then steal my idea months later - Brewdog style
Will there be taxidermy involved in any of your ideas?
I really enjoyed the milkshake version, but I'm on board with this. If they want to do a sour NE IPA, there are a bunch of other things they can try, just not my precious Galaxy Bowl.
What's the hype level on Green Moss? Is this a rush-to-Grand-within-30-minutes-of-drop day or a meander-over-any-time-before-4:30pm day?
I would assume the latter since it's not a first-time release but who knows?
It's a mix because it's been released before, but it's probably one of their top 3 highest rated beers
Every time I assume these will sit around longer, I'm unpleasantly surprised.
In the last month or so just about every HB and P3 release has been sittign on shelves the next day at the shop right by my house. Prior to that people were lining up. I think the Phase Three initial releases brought in a lot of people who would never wait in line for beer and now they realize that so much shit is released every week that they can't afford it.
If they're just releasing one beer this week, does that mean it's a double batch so that there should be more available and sit around longer? Or, maybe I'm wrong to assume it's a larger batch than when they usually do 2 beers at a time.
This is one I haven't had, and see how well it was received before, so I plan on grabbing 2-4 cans to drink in a couple weeks on vacation.
Eh not sure if that means anything. Could mean a triple release in an upcoming week, or a double batch of a future release. I don't think it's as simple as one beer equals twice the volume.
I don’t know either but it felt like that Normalize the Signal single release was a bigger batch
From the pattern of when a single can is released for the week, I have def noticed that one beer is available longer into the distro day or even day after pending on which store.
Yeah, this is what I was trying to get at. I know Normalize The Signal lasted until at least the following day at some spots I go to.
But, as others have said, once we expect things to go one way, we usually get surprised.
Phase 3 and Normalize both lasted parts of 3 days (at least) at the Beer Cellar. It was a holiday week but also the 1st or 2nd biggest home consumption holiday of the year. I’m theorizing that it was bigger batches of the single releases combines with some full fridges/wallet restraint.
There's a little more than 2.5 cases left on the floor at Grand. I did not ask if they had more in the back.
As of about 1:35 Open Bottle had a pretty good sized beeramid. No limit at 15.99 per. Probably 15 cases or so
About a case and a half on the floor as of 4:30. Looking forward to trying this one
No limit at Crafted. I'd say as of 5:30 they had about 6 or 8 cases. Incidentally I saw Normalize at the Mokena Binny's.
Apparently HB will have Green Moss and Normalize the Signals at Square Roots Fest today only...
Saw this and I’m going tomorrow. Oh well...looks like some other solid options in the brew lounge.
Dovetail Kriek will be on there as well...
Considering you pointed it out, I assume it’s good?
2018 was excellent. Haven’t had the new release yet though
The collab with Perennial, Thoroughly New, was thoroughly awesome
3 releases next week....including a Pilsner!
