    Can anyone confirm that Party Wave cans made it through the day? Website is updated for 1/6, but under the cans section is lists Party Wave and “growlers”.

    I see what you mean, they listed Party Wave under cans and also Kegs but it says Growlers under both of them, but then doesn't list it under the growlers section.... pretty odd.

    Just finished my last bottle from 2017 over Christmas. If Im lucky enough to get this again will drink it much quicker. It was still very good but enjoyed it more fresh (imagine that).

    The fact that they are allowing up to 2 allocations per person indicates there is a TON... but thinking that it will help my cause if I only go for 1 allocation (which is plenty for me and I am not looking to trade or anything...). Here's hoping! Got shut out last time they did Mexican Brunch via online lottery, but got it when they did the 'quiet release' the year before.

    I got Sunday last time with no issue (2 sets). And i feel like it was up longer then releases prior (mexican in 2017, BA Sunday and so on) so who knows. Either way I will try and if I get it cool, if not, ill crack an old bottle (drank something else last night)

    SB sold out in 15 minutes - like officially sold out, not just "unavailable." So still a super small window.

    Amazed that you still have to jump through hoops for this. It's a great beer, but it's not THAT great.

    I agree. Kane releases so many different things, and in such large quantities, that you would think that it would be just a matter of showing up some time during the day or next after a release and be able to get something. That’s true of some of their releases but not all. The Brunches and Bells aren’t even barrel-aged!:wink: (Well except for the BA versions)

    Even if the beer isn't "THAT great", the demand has to be such that to have a regular announcement and release would create crowds at the brewery that they aren't able to manage to their standards (creating other complaints). By no means am I an expert on Kane releases but, a few of the beers they only release annually seem to draw much more interest than others like Malus or Vengeful Heart. I suspect that Mexican Brunch is one of them for whatever reason (it's a great beer).

    You’re totally right here, it is a tasty beer. I would argue that Vengeful Heart is also a great beer yet because of the style it luckily sits a few weeks. People lose their shit over the big stouts/porters. Demand for beers like Mexican Brunch is still higher than supply and that’s a shame for everyone but Kane. As mentioned in another thread, NJ still has too few breweries, much less great ones, to accommodate demand.

    Back to back party wave releases, granted this one is $2 more and "DDH"

    Perhaps it'll slowly become part of the HH/OH/SB "always around" lineup.

    Don't worry, it's verrrrry similar to Sunday Brunch, which isn't a bad thing. One of the most delicious dark beers of any kind ever made, barrel aged or not. Frankly I like the regular versions more than the barrel aged versions.

    Second the nonbarrel statements. Barrel aged Sunday brunch was half of its non barrel self. Just my opinion and preference though I guess.

    Funny thing. They posted that they had a little Party Wave left but it seemed like no one was buying it with DDH Party Wave available the same day because it was still there when I stopped by about an hour ago. Did an Icarus/Kane run for some good stuff.

    I was one of those jerks, mostly because I’ve had (and thoroughly enjoyed) party wave a bunch of times and I figured might as well splurge on the DDH while I could still get it. Kinda kicking myself now though, love me some party wave. Hope the DDH version turned out well.

    I was there briefly. I had two tasters and bolted after buying some cans and a bottle to head to kane before heading home for playoffs. It was crowded but not a shit-show and no line for pours or to-go sales which was nice.

    I didn’t the same. Almost bought some for science but since I also got stuff at Icarus I limited myself to a four pack of each of today’s release.

    So I’ll also say that the best beer I had from Icarus today was Valjean, a saison. This beer is an indictment of the craft beer drinker. It’s the oldest beer available from the brewery but it’s not DDH DIPA or big stout so it sits. But this is a Kane thread so I’ll add that both canned options were very good (natch).

    That’s a surprise. (Proves your point).

    Looks like that’s out there in cans too. I’ll pick it up if I see it.

    Didn’t get the chance to try either of these new Kane beers, but I will say I’m digging the “new” designs.

    If you like saisons it’s a good one. Drinking it now while watching/hoping the Cowboys lose.

    Full disclosure I didn’t get Yacht Juice and haven’t opened Bourbon Legend.

    Similar story. I stopped by Brix City. They had a black Lager on tap that was spot on. Everybody buying the haze was missing out.

    Ok back to Kane

    Hows DDH party wave compared to the reg?

    I was thinking the same thing but I don’t feel like starting one and having to put all the info in.

    As I stated, I didn’t buy the reg along with the DDH but it seems very similar to what I remember.
