    Anyone know if the Beer Temple sold out tonight? Saw around 7pm that they were waiting for the delivery but I couldn't make it this evening.

    Why would you cellar a fruited beer to begin with?

    no OTA at WLV yet... Kristina is traveling again =p hopefully hear back from them soon.

    the orange is subtle... we added A LOT.... we'll add more next time and keep figuring out what works. It was very ORANGY before we bottled but it seemed to drop out immediately.

    Citra Ninja and RTA are on the schedule... as well as Chai Dog and we found a source for Galaxy hops so Galaxy is back in play!!!! We are having to ship them directly ourselves from Australia but whatever it takes... since we got ZERO on our contract for the next two years...

    D&D's should have plenty left. I was there earlier today (noonish) and they had only sold a handful of each. Also, they have FFF sixers.

    Does anyone know of a place that still has MariLime or OTA in the city or around Darien? Taking off for cottage in Indiana tomorrow and wanted to try and bring those to open with some people who don't normally have access.

    Is Everett's getting any OTA or Marilime? They seem to get things a little later than most so hoping I didn't miss out.

    Willowbrook Binny's will usually say when something comes in and just checked and it doesn't look like it has. I may have freaked out a bit premature once I saw it was being released and didn't want to miss out.

    I stopped in last night around 8 pm and seemed to have a fair amount of both. I know it wasn't sold out as of last night as I tweeted before I arrived asking, and got a reply after they closed saying to come back when they opened at 11am today. Obviously things could have changed in 2+ hours since they opened, but you have a fighter's chance. . .

    Thanks for the tip, ended up with some free time at lunch and went and grabbed two. Still a handful of OTA, and a bunch of Marilime and Centennial sitting there.

    It usually lasts a week. So probably next Monday or Tuesday. Unless Vav has changed how long they hold them back. I know I probably can't get there until Friday so I'm hoping it's still a week...

    Yes sir - also distributed bottles to a couple locals around Vermont, including the owner/operator of a nanobrewery (Grateful Hands) working out of his garage. Reviews overwhelmingly positive, of course.

    June 26, 2013 Update

    This week brings three releases. One new and two old favorites:

    Orange Truffle Abduction is our new member of the Abduction family. OTA is a 10.5% imperial stout brewed with orange zest, juice, cacao nibs and vanilla beans. $10.99 per 22oz bottle.

    MariLime Law, our collaboration with Tired Hands Brewing Company out of Ardmore, PA, makes it's triumphant return. This 8% imperial IPA was brewed with fresh lime zest and juice as well as Simcoe and Amarillo hops. A great beer for all things summer. $9.99 per 22oz bottle.

    Poivre Rose returns for the first time this summer and with new packaging! This time around we packaged this saison brewed with pink peppercorns in 750ml bottles. Poivre Rose one is definitely one of our favorites! $9.99 per 750ml bottles.

    All three are available now for FWB pick up at Binny's Lincoln Park and tomorrow at West Lakeview Liquors. (We suggest you call ahead to confirm stock if you are making long trip.)

    Pipeworks News:

    We are also happy to announce that we are on track to open bottle shop in November.

    We will be able to share our summer event schedule with you very soon.

    On brewing Horizon:

    Saison du Soleil (French style Saison brewed with grapefruit zest and juice), Sam vs Unicorn Imperial Red Ale, Coffee Break Abduction, Ninja vs Unicorn, Citra Ninja, Raspberry Truffle Abduction, Imperial Chai Dog Milk Stout and 18th Street Galaxy Slayer.

    From my hunting, a lot of stores still hadnt received it yet as of yesterday, and I don't think vav's stash is public use yet, so I think you should be able to land some. I hope so because I've struck out so far.

    loyal faithful... if the cup is making it's rounds can you have some pipeworks beer on your person to possible give to the hawks and/or maybe drink it out of the cup... totally reasonable request.

    OTA is now sold out at Vas Foremost. I gave up the last bottle to some grateful dude. Hopefully I get beer karma for a month or something...

    Great news on the galaxy hops, guys! I assume this means more Galaxy Unicorn, which should make my girlfriend's night.

    Carcillo brought it onstage at the Rush concert, but for some reason they wouldn't let me up there to get near it.

    Just a heads up, one of the LP Binnys guys said OTA will be general availability on Tuesday.
