    Got a friend near Compton who said she would go get cans for me. Where can I see if they are sold out or not?

    Only once (I think) have cans lasted until the next day. Cans typically sell out within 3 hours from the release.

    No reason to follow any other social media other than Twitter for releases. Case and line counts every 20 minutes or so. IG and FB don't give those counts.

    Perfection when it comes to Galaxy & Nelson Sauvin. Very low carbonation but it works here.

    Haven't been to Monkish in a minute, but I'm hoping that pilsner stays on fills for about a week. That will be awesome for camping. I will be taking multiple growlers of it with me.

    Riri Waka is great. Curious if anyone else has tried it? Never heard of Riwaka hops before, but I am a fan.

    It tastes just as you would expect a Southern Hemisphere hop to taste like, strongly resembling a mesh between Galaxy and Nelson. It is quite good imo, with flavors of lemon, green grapes, white wine, black pepper, and bubble gum being detectible. Also has an underlying earthiness to it, contrasting with some of the fruit flavor. I consider Nelson and Galaxy to be some of my favorite hops, and I am really enjoying the flavor Riwaka brings. Hope that helps.

    Decided to try the first can of Tinkerbell Beats

    Very tropical and pineapple-forward with an underlying sweetness throughout. Grassy hoppy profile at the finish which rounds out the flavor. Booze well hidden. Overall yet another enjoyable Monkish double. I think even a couple more days in the can will benefit this beer.

    Taking one for the team. This is really approachable even on day one. I love this new recipe and I love that Henry is using El Dorado in it. Floral and juicy AF. This is going to get very special soon.

    Cheers,

    it might, but that line at opening would be pretty rough if it does, lol.

    i wonder if this might be more frequent in the future. it would definitely help people from out of town with their chances at being able to stumble upon cans. :thinking_face:

    Don’t think it counts as the release this week. Just got here and they’re already sold out sadly. Apparently it was a 15 barrel batch.

    ^^^So, SOOOO this...that would be me...and let me be honest here, when I rolled up to the tasting room, I was extremely excited solely about tasting the 7 hazies on the board...which is a lot. I was totally shocked and surprised to the point that I almost shed a tear that they had a secret, surprise can release!!! What!?!?!?!? HAHA! I was so excited that the young lady tending bar asked me why. I told her I was from the Sac Area and just in town for a business trip. She was very excited for me!!! I still can't believe it...and a 100% Nelson DIPA?!?!?!?!?!?! it feel like I hit the lottery or something! LOLOLOLOL!!!

    It was indeed a small test run that Henry did today that was initially going to be a tap growler fill release only. They did a very small 15 barrel batch and decided at the last minute to can a bit. 90-100 allotments that sold out at 6pm. Stoked for all those that don't get the cans on a regular basis and just happened to be at the right place at the right time for IMHO the best beer Monkish has ever made and were able to get cans. I dropped in around 8:15 tonight and was stoked to get this little bundle of joy ! Filled a couple of jugs too because this won't stick around long.

    Cheers,
