Indeed it is! My bad
Enjoying a Unicorn's Revenge right now (Batch #92). Very buttery and creamy. Well done, as usual!
Buttery? I hope not
Better than blu cheesy I guess.
Just meant that it's very smooth. Hops are there on the back of the tongue, but are much more subtle than Ninja vs. Unicorn.
for future beer reference, treat the word "butter" as a German would "nazi."

- Unicorns Revenge, Imperial IPA, Centennial, Amarillo, Pacifica & Nelson Sauvin, no bittering hops, is now available at both West Lakeview & Binny's Lincoln Park for FwB pickup! $10.99/22oz
- As is Chipotle Smoked Porter, this is similar to the Froggy Style, but with Cherrywood Smoked Malts and a healthy dose of Peppers, isn't super spicy but has a really nice smoked chipotle flavor, $7.99/22oz
damn I really wanna try that unicorns revenge. Any chance u guys are gonna distro to western burbs?
Unicorns Revenge didn't even last a day at the two Binny's locations I tried to get some at!
Went a little Pipeworks crazy at Fischmans yesterday. Picked up some Unicorns Revenge which i'm about to open. An End of Days and a N vs. U for an eastcoast friend in exchange for some Heady and Nugget Nectar.
So I bought 2 bottles of NvU, a favorite of mine. Both batch 91 and from the same store. First bottle is the same delicious unicorn nectar I've come to know. Second bottle tastes like battery acid. Well, this is not something I've imbibed certainly but what I think it might taste like. Anyway, the second bottle was undrinkable. Wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. Just a bad bottle I guess but disappointing nonetheless.
I have noticed some bottle variation in some of the PW brews as well. Nothing to the extreme of battery acid, but certainly bottles that were lacking certain flavors or didn't really taste like the previous brew I had.
Thanks for your feedback. Maybe I was a bit harsh in comparing it to battery acid, apologies for that, but it was very off-putting in flavor. Undrinkable to me anyway. Was just curious as to others' experience with bottle variation. Thanks again.
Interesting. I haven't experienced it, and I hope any bottles I have sent out as extras don't have that same off putting flavor. Trying to spread the PW love around the country....
Don't think I've personally come across this issue.
I sure haven't! which brews have you found this with? i've tried all their offerings aside from the smoked porters(just not something i like) and havent run into any problems
I'm with you regarding spreading PW love and this wouldn't prevent me in any way from grabbing NvU when I see it again, nor any of the other great offerings. It was probably a .01% type of variance thing.
This bottle of Unicorn's Revenge I picked up today is mighty tasty. I suggest anyone seek it out who likes a big DIPA.
I'm a FwB, I've bought every new beer but not every batch. I've had some brews recently that taste like an art project solvent. Pastrami on Rye and that Puerto Rican beer both had that solvent smell and taste. The last batch of End of Days did too, but less so. I talked to Scotty at the Beer Temple opening and tried a Pastrami beer with him, and it tasted fine. Maybe it's the spices in those beers? Anyway, Revenge was great and Chipotle porter is amazing, grabbed another bottle of it today to share. I didn't refridgerate the bad tasting beers, but now all Pipeworks go in the beer fridge, just in case.
Sorry for the noob question, but what is an fwb?
The only time I've ever used fwb was for friends with benefits, I'm assuming that's not the case here, lol.
That's correct. It was for the people that invested $100 or more into the brewery during their Kickstarter. Special access to some beers. Initial runs of beers held specifically for us so we don't have to worry about them selling. More perks as well.
Gotcha. That makes sense now.
Unless you stopped by the Lincoln Park Binnys today looking for Unicorns Revenge. Sold out! Even for FwB!
I had to console myself with a few glasses if Olive Branch across the street (it's not often I speak highly of a Goose Island Clybourn beer but that one was really, really good).
Sigh....this is why I cant wait until PW has their store up and running. I was lucky to get some at WLV today (my FWB pick up). It seems like this problem happens at both locations.
Is it really sold out at LP Binnys? I planned on getting my bottle tomorrow.
battery acid? this stuff tastes likes dreams in liquid form. hopped double stout? yes plz.
Indeed, i am sold out right now, but they are bottling the second run this morning, so i'll be getting the rest of the FWB allocation today.
And there you go, it's back in.
Just for FWB?
For the moment.

Follow up to Vav's info, above:
Figured we should alert you now before the blizzard! The 2nd batch of Unicorns Revenge is now at West Lakeview and Binny's Lincoln Park. It'll be held for a week like normal. There was a mix up and some people didn't get their Revenge this weekend, but it'll be there now for you. Should be available right now for pick up if you wanted to snag it before the storm.
Raspberry Truffle Abduction still planned for this week?
I have found FwB beers are sometimes not available at castle Vav ( at least twice in the past 2 months). When I asked for the last batch of NvU a couple days after its available the lady at customer service had no idea what I was talking about and looked on the floor and just said I have WRT.
Just picked up my Unicorn's Revenge. Super excited.
If anyone in the Western Burbs is looking for Unicorns revenge, I just found some today (by rare chance) @ bolingbrook binnys. Was talking to one of the beer guys and they said they literally just got it in.
Also surprisingly they still have peruvian morning left. Just picked up another 4 pk for myself. Good shit.
man, everything I keep trying from these guys ends up being amazing.
just wait til you try their next take on abduction
Its going to take a lot to trump Coffee Break IMO, but I can't wait for the challenge.
They're brewing Citra Ninja today.
