    Is it me, or is the latest batch of head high tasting a bit more juicy neipa/ less dank?

    Hoping that means it is available through a couple more business days :slight_smile:

    Party Wave is Kane's best sticker can, probably.

    The bros don’t like repeat cans, more for the average person. A beautiful thing.

    Yeah, I was hoping no one would post it. I like Party Wave way too much to share it with the masses.

    I wouldn't say it's Kane's best sticker can, fringe top 5 for me, but a great beer nonetheless. I walked in to a half-empty Kane half hour before close and there was plenty left

    Glenn said they liked it and we should see it again. Party Wave is one of my favs since they first released it on tap. The Punches were great sticker cans

    I peaked out some empty barrels that had labels for Driftwood in Apple Brandy barrels, sounds interesting

    driftwood hasn't been around in awhile has it??? Name doesn't ring a bell at all recently. that would be a perfect tap room only beer i would guess.

    I think its been a while, Drift Line was on recently but not Driftwood. I saw the apple brandy barrels of it my cousin had seen Rye ones filled with it too. We guesstimated how many bottles you could get out of the 4 barrels and it was a good limited run but could be draft only too

    The IG comments are great. I’d rather see sneakbox...people are such whiners. Head high is personally one of my favorite ipas. Can’t wait to pick up locally and have it not have to be a growler fill. Between this news and being able to regularly find boat these days were in a good place beerwise in this state. Not to mention the small local places around.

    I don’t drink head high offen at the brewery (taplist is so great and so many options) and I barely buy cans but knowing I can run to my local wegmans is amazing. And I will likely buy them when I am there in the summer. Complainers gonna complain. F em

    Swung by Canals in Lawrenceville after work today to grab some Head High. $13.99 per 4pk canned on 4/16/18. They also had single cans for $3.99ea.

    I don't mind the hour drive to the brewery, but it's pretty damn nice to have this fresh and readily available less than 10 from home. Thanks @glennl and the rest of the Kane crew for making this happen.

    There’s still cans of Party Wave available, just got here and see about 15 4-packs in the fridge

    That's so awesome! Not so much for a beer like Head High but I will all places sold single cans of fresh beer, even at a small markup. So many beers I'd like to try but don't want a 4pk of sitting in my fridge.

    Again, I realize that's slightly off topic as Head High does not fall into that category. A 4pk of that is always welcomed, just cool to see a place doing singles of fresh beer and not just waiting until they're 9+ months old and don't sell before putting them up for individual sale

    Completely agree with selling singles. I would try so many more local beers but being tied down to a 4-pack of each at $16 a 4-pack sucks. Lots of places in Manhattan let you buy singles which is nice. I've asked at Bottle King and Buy Rite but they don't seem to see a benefit.

    Speaking from experience selling singles is way more of a courtesy to the customer than it is a profitable venture. It's a nightmare for inventory and just more a headache than it's worth. Go into any store that sells all bottles by the single from any 4 pack and you'll see a huge mess.

    Not complaining (Kane should do whatever benefits them the most), but man would I much rather see Sneakbox in distro. I don't doubt Head High is the better seller but I'm curious how close it is. Although I wonder if it has more to do with volume.

    Be patient. Head High is the flagship. There will be a day when Head High, Overhead and Sneakbox will all be in distribution

    If Sneak Box is ever available locally I will go broke. So they should take their time on that one so I have some more time before I'm destitute.

    Exactly and if a beer is $16/4pk I'd happily pay the extra $1 at like $5/can just to be able to try one and not be committed to all 4. It's a fridge space issue as well :grinning:

    not a huge lager fan, but I wouldn't mind it. I think from a business perspective they know some type of IPA or IIPA would likely sell more in a regular can. But we can designate Night Swimming to Purple and make Party Wave a Blue to Green style can like they label on the sticker one!
