Its at the beer temple
So that Coffee Break that delayed an engagement...had some funky flavors too it. It was like licking metal tart. I was pretty bummed. It was batch 72, i still have a few more from that batch. Hope they aren't all that way :/.
I just drank a batch 72 a few days ago and it was fantastic.
Batch #112 was the titty sprinkles
Both of my 72s have been amazing. Looking forward to the titty sprinkles batch.
had a 72 and thought it had too much coffee. was otherwise tasty.
Too much coffee? Is that even possible? I honestly have not had a beer yet that made me think, "this has too much coffee." And yes....I am an addict.
This counts as an endorsement of the beer for me
Blood of the Unicorn is one of my favorite beers. Only had it once on a trip to Chicago. I think it was the first or second batch ever brewed. Fell in love with that beer. How do you get West Lakeview to ship out of the area? The website says they are still redesigning their website. Wish I had a Pipeworks here in DC, hehe. When I was at WLV the guys that work there were telling me how the Pipeworks dudes met each other at the store. Don't remember the full details.
Just FYI, i've been delayed in selling Cascade Ninja & Murderous...the store was hit by lightning last night and, aside from blowing a chunk off of the roof, it also took out our phones and internal servers. Internet just went back up, but i cant communicate with the home office computer to update the store's inventory/pricing...which means i cant sell'em yet.
once everything is updated will these be FwB or avail to the general public?
Does that mean there's going to be another vav wet box cellar sale?
Where's the fwb email about cascade ninja? Can we pick this up?
Did you canoe into work today vav?
Ok we're good to go here. FwB only 'til Monday.
That's just the universes way of saying "don't delay love for some beer bro"
I haven't seen a email yet either. Kind of sucks that I was downtown this morning and had no clue CN was even at Vav's yet! Hopefully I can get in by Monday.
Seems like a short window.
I'm guessing most FwB have got their allocation from WLV by now, since they got theirs in Tuesday and we've been unable to sell it.
Am i incorrect?
No FwB email went out. I pickup at the Binny's Marcie St. drop off, but haven't been over there to see if they have it.
Before your comment about not being able to sell it, I didn't even know that you had to (not) sell. Best I can tell, there's nothing via facebook/twitter/direct emails about either of their new beers coming out. Last time I asked someone about when Pipeworks stuff usually shows up at the Binny's - River North store, the answer was, "Who knows?" I tend to rely on their emails to know when something is new/available.
Check your inbox. It showed up in mine about 30 seconds ago.
FwB email just dropped...squeaky wheel gets the grease i guess. Thanks P-dubs!
Where is Lansman?!?!?!?
Already in line for DLD, disrepectin' up the place like mad!
anyone stop by binny's on grand and happen to see what was available by PW, specifically the latest releases?
You know where I rather spend my money.
From the email:
Pretty interesting...looks like PW is movin on up. Wonder where.

Gotcha, well cool then. I'll wait 'til Thursday to release'em to the world then.
Thanks Vav, you are a gentleman and a scholar.
Was finally able to try some Raspberry Truffle Abduction last night....wow! Wish the nearest store selling Pipeworks wasn't 40 minutes from my house. We also blended 1/3 RTA to 2/3 Coffee Abduction and it turned out quite tasty, give it a shot if you want to experiment a bit
Life's a Cabernet (off North Ave., just East of Damen) had both of the new releases as of yesterday afternoon. They also had just about the highest prices I've seen for a Pipeworks bomber outside of Andersonville Wine & Spirits. $13.65 after tax for the Cascade Ninja (I would have gone to Binnys if I had the time). It seems they're taking the 'suggested' part of MSRP quite literally!
Blood of the Unicorn is the best hoppy imperial red out there in my opinion. Ninja vs. Unicorn is also an amazing DIPA. The only thing stopping me from drinking Pipeworks all the time is that it is only in bombers and $10 bucks a bomber is a bit too pricey.
^def this^ love me some Pipeworks but gets to be a little to much for me at times. Especially at $10.99 for some of their IPA/DIPA and other higher abv offerings.
Rumor has it they are moving to expand and also "canning" at least that's what a bird is singing. Lets hope it's true.
we already know the moving to expand is true as they've talked numerous times about their new brewhouse, but i haven't heard anything about canning. would be really nice as i love lots of pipeworks brews but they're just not cheap enough for regular drinking. NvU out of a can would be so awesome.
I also heard they were going to be canning at the new facility.
new brewhouse does not equal new facility. new brewhouse is going to allow us to stop brewing 4 times a week double batching... it'll give us some breathing room to focus on all that other stuff we should be doing like answering e-mails. all we are doing with that is replacing our psychobrew 2-4 barrel system with a 10 bbl system.
so what you are saying is like... if we put beer in a can... you would buy the shit out of it? interesting idea ;-)
