    I got there at 425 and I was the fourth to last person to get a 4 pack. Only 15 cases were made available not 20.

    Didn't even try for cans but as my first time having some of RAR's big guns, I liked Hyde (awesome and by far my #1 of the group) and Pulp more than Imperial Pulp.

    Yeah pretty shitty that RAR posted they made 20 cases for the event and then Max's keeps 5 cases for their personal stash. Although not entirely surprised, im generally not a huge fan of maxs. Some rude employees and poor business practices, not that my opinion matters considering theyre one of the most well known beer bars on the east coast.

    Probably didnt make the top 5 beers from them for my tastes

    I really like RAR, but every single one of their beers that I've gotten to try both on tap and in the can have been like tasting completely different beers. Do they use a mobile canning line? I'm not sure what the issue is, but Nanticoke Nectar, Marylan, and others were all miles better from the tap than what I've had in cans.

    Not sure if anyone else has noticed this, or I'm just an idiot.

    I know RAR posts here, and I'm not trying to diss them. They are allowed to choose the "just an idiot" option from above.

    A couple new beers that will probably be making an appearance at Union's anniversary party (posted on Churchkey's facebook for their upcoming Union event):

    Pink Flamingo (sour blonde with grapefruit and ginger)
    The Chubbler (imperial IPA)

    Also mentioned on Union's facebook that their Max's anniversary beer - Diamonds and Pearls, a dry-hopped gose - will be on tap at the anniversary party.

    They said a brand new ipa... we were also assured it would NOT be a black ipa

    I thought the Over the Counter was an "exclusive" release only at Max's Taphouse??

    I was wondering if you guys can help me out I'll be staying in ocean city from the 23-30 and was wondering what are some good spots I can get my hands on beers from burley, rar, and manor hill. I know burley is close so I plan on visiting that.

    Thanks

    The fellas at Max's were gracious enough to let us brew/release another batch since a lot of folks couldn't get their hands on it. Cheers guys!

    Right up the road from Burley is a store called Cheers. Last time I was there, they had a good selection of Maryland beers.

    We're staying at a house outside Cambridge and will be headed to RAR tomorrow for some beers, food and to fill the growlers. Can we fill other breweries' growlers or should we bring the RAR ones that are chillin in this house?

    Part of your question is a trick. You bring ALL the growlers because there is no such thing as too much RaR.

    Hyde? Good sir, obviously you have great taste. That is definitely my favorite from them.

    Burley just announced they are canning a small run of their Summer Eclipse. "4.4% Sessionable Dark Sour. Overwhelming notes of cranberries, dark fruit and baking chocolate gives this beer a super complex flavor profiles"

    Cans on sale this Saturday @ 11am. 1 case PP limit.

    Never been to a Burley release, but will be in Chincoteague for the weekend and plan on hitting Burley. Any chance I'll get a 4 pack or two if I'm there early evening?

    Last release they had was their LOST Release and Cans were SOLD OUT in about 2 hrs.

    If you aren't able to grab a 4pk, they have it on tap and I think they'll do a growler or crowler fill.

    Getting excited for Burley Oak's next can release. LOST's bigger brother, FOUND, will be released at 11am this Saturday. 1 case pp. 8.2% IPA loaded with 4 lbs per bbl of Mosaic, Amarillo, and Simcoe. I tried it last night at the brewery and it is a total Hop BOMB.

    who do we have to collectively blow or murder to get Union to brew 3rd Stone again? I love the stuff RAR is doing, but 3rd Stone is still my #1 MD beer of the past several years

    I'm headed to The OC on Friday by way of route 50/Bay Bridge and was planning to stop by RaR. What is their can situation typically? Do they always have some on hand or am I looking at growler fills only? And I don't mean the regular distro stuff like Nanticoke and the Hefeweizen.

    Their cans rarely make it to the next day.

    They always announce their can releases ahead of time, and thus far they have only been on Saturdays. Typically they sell out the same day of release. You can probably pick up growlers or crowlers of whatever they have on tap tho
