    On the six pack holder itself we are working on getting a can code dater. Baby steps! We are growing way faster than expected. But that's a good thing.

    @flyone what's the Melvin bus doing in my hometown of Silverthorne Colorado right now?!?!? I almost stopped to talk to them. Let them know they just got gas as the most expensive gas station in Summit County haha.

    4-pack of Lamda^3 made for great backpacking beer this weekend. When you're carrying all of your shit into the backcountry, cans are a must. High abv. hops FTW (plus a stovepipe of BATF for good measure ;) )

    Hey we were students at one time. You should see Jackson it's nuts and not even July yet. My guess is Agust will be the craziest with the eclipse and all. We are doing a black IPA and I'm working with the chef now on a black curry haha. As for mor beer down your way I'll let Travis know.

    Skipped the lambada in favor of killer bees. After waldos I just can't pull the trigger on that one, glad I got killer bees though. That's my new nongerman summer beer.

    I am not a triple IPA guy in the least, and Lambda sadly did not change that.

    We would do a Wutang glass but RZA has a little more money and a lot of pull. Don't mess with the Wutang.
