    I also struck out on the Jutuex sale. It was surprising to see it go immediately to Sold Out, instead of unavailable.
    Luckily, I was able to try it on tap on Saturday. I was also able to purchase onsite bottles of Mas Jutuex b2 and Mas Fruit Cart. Mas Jutuex batch 2 wasn't as much as apricot bomb as batch 1, but it was still solid. Mas Fruit Cart is still tasting amazing, and probably one of my favorite fruited saisons that Henry has put out. Definitely my favorite from the Mas series. (patiently waiting for Same Tree)

    Looks like Monkish sold out of Atomically cans in little over an hour. That’s not usually normal right?

    That’s highly unusual especially considering that their twitter feed kept noting that there was no line. Did they suddenly become hyper efficient with managing the line and processing payments?

    i'm sure most people realized there was a release today because they said they were having 3 this week and have only had 1 so far this week, so do the math and Sunday has only been done for their anniversary. So I'm sure lots of people were there at opening and with 3 per person and only 130 cases it will go fast.

    As long as you’re at monkish within an hour of a release you should be fine.

    I highly recommend that you follow both of their Instagram and Twitter accounts and turn on post notifications, if you don’t already follow them. Their can releases are usually announced via IG and Twitter around 2:30 pm PT on the day of release and sale usually starts at 4 pm. Their Twitter feed provides release info and periodic updates of available allotments and the number of people in line. As previously mentioned, if you get to the brewery within the hour of a release announcement, you’re pretty much guaranteed a full allotment.

    Except Friday and Saturday releases. Friday releases are typically announced between noon and opening (1pm). Saturday’s have been the day before but could also get announced at opening.

    I’m sure this is asked over and over, but... would I have any shot at a can release if I arrived after 5pm? Will be in town in 2 weeks

    Thanks in advance!

    Depends on the can, but following their social media (especially Twitter on release day) is your best bet.

    on a monday-thursday release, more than likely. id just check their release page for the number of releases for the week you're in town (usually updated monday afternoon) and follow them on twitter/instagram for the notifications and line/count updates like Izzy mentioned. gl!

    For the 2 people coming this week, set up an IP trade. Monkish as had a ton of high volume (for them) releases recently. I have no doubt you could trade for it.

    So with you on this one, some of Monkish's best beers never see the inside of a can and their glass is cheap, my God, Moves In Silence is one of the best beers they have brewed this year IMHO. The majority of my Monkish consumption is from the tap.

    Cheers,

    Yeah, I'm curious too. When did they change that? I'm trying to recall if last time I went and ordered for myself if it was two half pours or two fulls.

    My last visit roughly a month or 2 ago I was able to get 2 half pours (tasters?). That'd be a real bummer if it was only 1 pour at a time.

    hophead v. who?

    I kid. That does make sense though, regarding when it was implemented. Though, I'm rarely at anywhere but the little bar corner, and always in tow with my girl, so I guess...I haven't had a reason to do more than 1 pour at a time in a long while...?

    I'll help appease you. It was me. I told someone I didn't like Shadowboxing (which I don't). The fight was quick, our neckbeards got entangled and we kind of swung right into each other and knocked each other out.

    There may have been kissing.

    As you can see, it was an old head, possibly OTB, since everyone knows new money doesn't Belgian.

    I think the two full pours also depends on if you're with anybody. When I go with my wife, I'm able to get two full pours (without her being in line)

    Has any chicanery been going on with latest Monkish releases? They sold 168 cases in an hour today?

    I remember a week or two ago one of their releases had 20 cases left and no one in line and sold out 5 minutes later...

    I think Modern Time makes better hazies and have stopped bothering with them; is the hype really still that high here?

    I'm also really surprised with how quickly this one sold out. Saw the release and planned to leave after my last work call at 1:30pm. Sold out already.

    Felt abnormally fast but I guess everyone was anticipating the drop with 2 releases pending on a Friday. I enjoy MT but hadn't had Monkish in a while, ah well maybe next time but not tomorrow which I'm assuming is another bananas release.

    Monkish sold 130 cases of Atomically on a Friday release about 3 weeks ago and it also went in a hour or so. I think that Friday releases go very quickly as opposed to the mid-week ones.
