    The worst part about being there would be how long that line is gonna take to clear. Good luck to those there or going.

    Yeah f that, furtherest I parked ever was all the way down the block but not blocks away. That was during 1825/Fifth I think and maybe MB in the rain 2 years ago. Since this post went up Wed, I figured I wouldn't get DB Evening, maybe I can get one elsewhere, but I hope Morning Bean lasts and theres no line when i get out of work. If not i had it on tap.

    I liked it, it didnt have the normal bite of an IPA, but I assume thats b/c the addition of the cider to the beer itself. I liked it, but i liked Cider (non alcoholic) a lot, so it makes sense. But I'd prob only drink 1 in a sitting, maybe a second a while later. I think it was better as it got a little warmer as well

    I’m hoping that all of these releases end up saturating the market to the point you can walk in anytime after release day without much hassle. Seems like it’s getting there with the past few. I looked at my notes on Vanilla MB and seemed to like it but preferred reg MB. I should do some blind tastings vs shelf comparables for science.

    Sunday Brunch was on tap at my local bar last night, a Thanksgiving Miracle

    Tomorrow when we open we will be releasing... :slight_smile:

    I can’t believe how many beers were released over the last month. Hopefully some more coming without crazy lines to deal with.

    Well, Greyvtrayn and I missed out on all but bean (missed evening bell by 40 minutes), but we didn’t have to wait in line and got to hang out so ok by me.

    Only mildly disappointed to miss on the BA beers but there was no way I was going to stand in a line outside today! Cheers, thedirtystayout!

    Totally with you. BA evening bell is good, but not standing in 30 degree weather for 3 hours good. Would have gone up for morning bean if that was the only release anyways and was happy to get a 4 pack of evening bell too. Was really surprised to see people buying cans of evening bell by the case...

    Maybe they were trying to justify to themselves having had waited so long only to miss out on BA options. Just a guess. Still surprising though lol.

    cracked a Morning Bean last night. Very good beer, but personally I think I like Morning Bell better. The vanilla was the front flavor with the dark roast coffee in the background, I am just a slave to that dark coffee taste..overall an awesome beer though.

    Any updates about the 10/22 batch of Sneakbox? Have they canned a new batch yet - if so, is it back to normal? I messaged Kane a week ago, no response.

  35. glennl

    glennl Initiate (133) Aug 22, 2009 New Jersey

    I can tell you the recipe hasn't changed. I did read back through and see some comments here, bready, grassy, etc. Other than those comments we're not aware of anything odd about that batch. Sorry no one replied to your email, we're usually pretty good about that if it's a quality issue.

    Your post makes me wonder how many people have shelled out for many if not all of Kane’s recent releases, including the online sales. Me- I’ve missed every one in the last couple months, which sucks but I guess I’ve saved money. Anyone here buy the brunches, bells, bean, whatever the Russian cake was called, plus the cans? How much did it run you guys?

    Yeah, I’m wondering the same. I “only” went to the Dirtwood and Medovik (Russian cake) releases and it set me back “only” about $80-90 for “only” 2 bottles each time and 2 or 3 four packs of DDH Sneak/Yellow Buttercup/Blue Hotel.

    Another issue is that I stopped by Trillium when I was in MA for Thanksgiving in between those releases and dropped around $120 for a case plus a couple 4 packs. Yeah, that’s right I said it! I went to the T-word place. Go ahead, and throw your tomatoes

    haha for some reason all i can picture is the scene in half baked when Dave CHappelee talks about being addicted to weed and the old guy yells boo this man! then everyone boos and throws stuff at Dave Chappelle.

    Personally never had Trillium and don't really see a reason to after all that hoopla plus all the griping I;ve been reading about their quality varying a bit. TH is a 2-2.5 hours from my inlaws so if I'm spending some time in a car I'm going there. Plus we have all this delicious Kane here...

    You do know that you are not required to buy everything they release, don't you?
