    Growler Fills: Beer prices vary depending on style but range from $7-$20+. The cost of the growler is an additional $10 for one-liter, and $12 for two-liter. Yes, Kane fills growlers from other breweries as long as it has a government warning, labeled volume, and a Kane Brewing Co. sticker can be applied for regulatory compliance.

Solitude, our 9.2% Belgian-style dark strong ale, will now be available at the brewery in 750ml bottles on an (almost) year-round basis.

    They offer a few varieties of their beer to be purchased in sixtel (5.2 gallon kegs). In addition to the cost of the beer, there is a $30 cash deposit required for the keg that will be refunded upon its return.

    i heard there was about 90 cases left before opening. there was a significant line at opening, cans were behind the bar so its hard to tell.

    Blue Hotel is a pretty cool name. Judging by Untapped all the lager hating people from last week are probably basking in glory for these. Anyone try it?

    Haven’t tried it yet. Will in a bit and will report back. Ratings thus far seems great. They were wheeling about 8 cases out as I left about 35 mins ago. No line

    their post earlier said they had a couple of cases of both blue hotel and coastal plain left for today for opening.

    Blue hotel is good I liked it a lot. Think it will get better in like a week

    @glennl - do you know if one is able to put in an entry for each of the options (one for the 3-set and one for the 2-set)?

    Ugh, literally the one weekend this month I'm unavailable to pick up bottles, I've been waiting on this since I missed out last year :confused:
     
  14. glennl

    glennl Initiate (131) Aug 22, 2009 New Jersey

    It's not an "entry" so no. It just a sale. You have to try for one or the other - the Set that includes both bourbon and rye, - OR - the set that is just bourbon

    Yield was low so doing variants would've brought the total number of available sets down to a number we thought was insufficient.

    glennl Initiate (131) Aug 22, 2009 New Jersey

    probably just recycling an old photo. I have no idea if anything would be on tap for pickup. That's not my department

    I'll stir the pot, even though I'm sure there its unlikely anything would be on tap. The photo has a '17 and '16 ANTEAD in it :slight_smile:

    Hoping I am able to score something!

    Then they would be out $50+

    It states in the information on the post either the BA and Rye OR BA only AND all sales are final. So if those people can't read then they will be donating money without getting anything and be complaining online after because they can't comprehend how to read

    I'm sure if there are left over bottles from people who can't read or who don't show up they will drop them silently, thats how I got mine last year!

    Also, its nice that OH is making so much beer now, I am in Brooklyn multiple times a week and there are always cans! now bring back some more of the oldies!

    Hmmmm I think I see the plan here.

    1) Release ANTEAD
    2) Wait for the inevitable saltiness from the folks that miss out
    3) Release massive amounts of Sunday Brunch so everybody gets as much as they want
    4) ??????
    5) Profit.

    I was at OH last night, if I didnt have an excess of cans right now I would have gotten some Double Mosaic Dream and some Citra Daydream. I still can't stand going there b4 5pm on a Sat but during the week i dont mind OH at all. If its something I HAVE to get I'll go earlier on a Sat but its almost not even necessary anymore

    also, i love ANTEAD its great, but I am more excited for 2 other things.

    1) the Horus collabs... Kane makes great Stouts/Porters and anything Kyle has made or had a hand in that I have tried is outrageously good, that stuff is going to be great.
    2) mixed ferm site beers... just gimme em now!

    There's a lot going on the mixed ferm side. It's not my area of expertise but we have some people who really know/appreciate/ understand the process and they tell me it takes time to do right. I just tell them to hurry up and release something. I get to be involved on the equipment and construction side and we have some more new equipment getting added this month that's exciting.

    But yeah, I want to actually drink the beers.

    Any ideas on # of cases or what it looks like? Was going to drive there but got stuck in while my wife ran errands. Thinking a 2pm arrival could be around sellout...and dont want to drive 40 min for nothing...

    I was there around 1 and there was only a short line. I didn’t see any pallets but the fridge was full so I’d be surprised if it was gone by 2.

    Went around 12:30. Steady stream of people but slow overall. Hope I earned some good antead karma as I bought and paid for a few 4 packs but they handed me a whole case and left me to go on my way... Honesty is the proper policy though (plus my kid was there.. lessons and all..).

    Looks like feedback on untappd so far is the galaxy punch is a bit green. Hoping to crack one tonight to try too!

    Vanilla Morning Bell is mighty tasty. Coffee definitely faded a LOT!
