    I don't understand why people wait in lines overnight for releases. Why not just come early the next morning. Sure you get beer first, but if you're able to grab them the following morning, why put yourself through that? I just don't get it.

    Its not about beer anymore, its all about dat teku colored glass life now. Hence the April fools joke changing their name to Monkish Glassware Company LLC, although I dont think it should be a joke and possibility consider this part of their expansion. Maybe Ill find their glassware in Target one day to replace all my plastic cups and paper plate dinnerware.

    Whether you come at 11 or start lining up overnight, you're still getting the same amount. Over 400 allotments so plenty to go around.

    I honestly don't understand it either. Unless someone is actually so destitute that they are literally making a living reselling these cans, like people often joke about on here. You honestly couldn't pay me money to stay in a parking lot all night. But maybe I would do it if I didn't know where my next meal was coming from and reselling Monkish cans was somehow the only form of employment I could get.

    I think for a lot of people it's become more about the scene and the collect-them-all pog aspect of it. I can appreciate that people are enthusiastic about beer but this is ridiculous

    Honestly, if you go around now, which is an hour and a half before release, you should be fine in getting it. There isn't any reason to wait overnight unless you simply want to mask the fact that you got nothing better going on for yourself on a Friday night and waiting in a parking lot with a lawn chair and a paper thin excuse to drink in public "rare" beers with others sounds like your jam.

    Arrived at 9:30am. HUGE line already, walked past the neckbeards already drunk in the front of the line. Should be good for full allotment at this point.

    For the most part these people don't care about beer. They're alcoholics and materialists who only care for high ABV & hard to acquire styles. They've found kinship in other idiots who think adults should be drinking BA stouts in parking lots at 2AM.

    I wasn't too impressed with the My People Come First. Dial Seven Digits was much better IMO. Also, today the line was so slow. Got in line at 9:30am with wristband #306 - out the door at 12:15pm.

    went last night and tried My People and some others. no lines, chill crowd. My People was good but it kind of cracked me up thinking about people sleeping in the parking lot to get cans of it

    Thx HT. Picking up my my brotha-in law Convict near Monks and dropping him off in the Anaheim area today. Haven't been by Monks in awhile. I'll hit it up and then check out this Offshoot thing to see if it's real.

    I saw this guy there. He had a case of Up Up, Canniversary, Mumford, and Modern times cans. Just selling for straight cash... what has this world come to.

    There's tremendous value in only having to wait in one line in order to snag multiple releases.

    So did Monkish do anything about him or are the hazebros in a snitches get stitches mentality?

    I think it was worth it stopping in for the 3 new IPAs. I had to drop off my brother in law near the area so I drove the extra miles to the Bruery. Pretty tasty. Looking forward to the can release. Plus I stopped in Mr Ks. Grabbed a bottle of Long Swim.

    I've been drinking a bit of that Long Swim lately, wish they would can it
     
  39. dcgunman

    dcgunman Crusader (774) Jul 1, 2009 California

    Agree. KRBC should can a DIPA, their Class V and a few more of their core beers. They've got a good start with JO as the IPA. Long Swim would be a good DIPA.

    is this what the place is actually called or are we witnessing a new nick name being created for a brewery?
