    The Stout celebration looks amazing! When are they going to start bottling their beers?

    They have already bottled their 365 anniversary beer and the Kane Malus but when I asked last weekend about bottling the Head High or Overhead, they told me 1-2 years....

    I was there. Had an awesome time. Wasn't even all that packed. The mosaic dry hopped overhead was ridiculous. As was the regular overhead. I swear overhead keeps getting better each time I try it. Galaxy head high was outstanding. Morning bell, I have ranked higher than this years breakfast stout. Port omna creamsicle was interesting, did'nt pick up much of the orange. And lastly night to end dawns was a solid barrel aged stout but bourbon was waaaayy to strong and overpowering.

    I was there for a couple hours last night and had a great time. Highlights were definitely Mosaic Overhead, Galaxy Head High, and A Night to End All Dawns. Driftwood was decent, but the barrel character is always a bit overpowering in a relatively low ABV -bal beer. Sorachi Single Fin wasn't bad, but while I normally enjoy Sorachi Ace hops, I got a bit of the "lemon pledge" character that other refer to sometimes. The Creamsicle Port Omna was a letdown because it was all vanilla and no orange. The beer itself was tasty, but not what I was expecting.

    This must have turned out differently than when they did it last year - straight up orange creamsicle last time. Galaxy Head High is awesome as well, I wish they would do that more often.
