Jesus christ even when you guys agree you argue.
I thought we agreed. I think we still do, but I'm glad Sammy set the record straight that he knows stouts should be consumed at a warmer temperature. People were starting to doubt what he knows about beer.
Whats your position at Magnify again?
I believe he has a dual role as Chief Apologist and Head Cheerleader.
Global Head of Secondary Internet Communications
I don't work specifically at Magnify. I'm an industry consultant.
stumbled on cans of Low Vis retail at Wegman's and bottle king recently, hadn't seen it in the wild in some time...
Anyone try their porter yesterday? I think the coffee porter is one of their best beers and just wondering if this is similar quality.
Agreed on the Coffee Porter - esp the last batch - the double coffee. Excellent beer.
This one while also being a Porter is a very different beer. Lighter in color. You immediately taste vanilla and orange. It is a little on the sweet side for me but still tasty.
Cans of Low Vis were at Bottle King in Ramsey today.
Stop following me. Picked up a 4-pack from there today. Also noticed another local brewery's cans were 6 months old right below it.
Yep. Those Reds Rye cans are a permanent fixture on that shelf. I bought plenty when it was fresh. Every couple of weeks I check the dates. All of the other Carton moves though.
You definitely have to check dates there. They have a shit-ton of old Pipeworks AZ well.
Cans of Peak Oil in VA
is magnify self-distributed?
yes, but they had stopped distributing for a while. They may be starting to again now.
i'm surprised they got it all the way down to VA then.
Not when they distribute out of state, like with the Pitt can drop. They do tiny distro to MA (draft only) through Nightshift's distro arm. No choice but to work with a distributor out of state. In state, they are self. IA is the same way.
Peak Oil was canned a month ago.
This is why they need to date their cans! Especially for being a hop factory of a brewery.
Me too! I live in Norfolk and moved from eastern PA over the summer so popped into this thread to see what the deal is with distro. I won’t hold my breath for another drop though
Funny thing about that shop (Exceptionale), month old undated Magnify cans are the least of your concerns there. They still have bottles of Founders Pale Joe and Lagunitas Tuberfest
I had my last Peak Oil on Thursday. Was still drinking great. Dates would be ideal, but it's not like it's that big of a deal to check on IG. They barely distro their cans. I don't know for sure (haven't been into work this week), but I would imagine it was connected to the Pitt can drop since they went through a distributor and had the same cans.
saw today some low vis cans available at wegmans manalapan if anyone is looking around there
distro (limited I'm sure) to NYC now it seems... Bread & Honey has Speak Kindly per beer menus...
B&h also carries some carton iirc. They're close to my office, perhaps I'll check them out to see what they have (and the pricing) .
Speak Kindly also on at The Rochard on the east side.
What kind of anti consumer BS is this?
"If the plebs wanna know if their beer is fresh they should try to figure it out by scrolling through Instagram"
this is similar to the " you should have checked Facebook"..I am still thankful for those people who post facebook taplists on here for the guys like me
I said it was ideal to do so, but not that big of a deal to check it on IG. I know that's a hard opinion to wrap your head around.
Idk, considering they have 4-6 post per release, trying to find something that's more than 3 weeks old is like 3+ thumb scrolls up. I mean, obviously magnify hates people with artritis.
You mean now I need to look at Untappd & BA ratings along with Facebook and IG posts for beer release dates while beer shopping in the store? Mmkay
Not the big of a deal to slap a dated sticker on the top of each 4-pack either.
And before you interject the whole money cost issue.
Im sure they are more then financially stable enough at this point to carry this out.
I mean if they can do Triple can releases on a weekly basis then...... Whats the excuse?
And the whole lack of distribution argument conflicts with with the whole principal of the matter.
So French Toast is a very unique beer and really hits exactly what it is trying to be. Think the flavors would be perfect with a cream ale or stout.
One thing I did notice is I'm not picking up any of the hops which were definitely prevalent in the other breakfast IPAs.
Surprised to see the Magnify / Carton collab... With their style and Augie's knack and palate for making unusual adjuncts / flavor cominations work it could be interesting...
Well if anyone knows how a brewery's finances affects the beer, it's you. Lol.
Very reasonably priced and varied options!
