    I just read the IG posting for this so called anniversary party.

    “ To show appreciation for those who supported us every day”

    I think I just threw up in my mouth.

    The fleecing of the lot lizard Haze Bros continues. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves, seriously.

    Cheers

    That's right up there with this cringe-worthy line from the Eventbrite page:
    "Due to the exclusivity of this event, we have some rules that are different than our usual Tasting Room regulations:"

    If you read the comments you'll be relieved to see a good amount of the bros rejecting the absurd price. About time they question their blind loyalty to their daddy.

    The only thing that relieves me about Monkish is their ability to still churn out quality Belgians/wilds like Black Kisses. Everything about the hazy IPA crowd and attitude over there turns me off, especially when there are plenty of other serviceable options in the LA area.

    Can't you be like the rest of the Monkish regulars and razzle your teku/hazy beer to pay for your crushing alcohol dependency/rent/ child support?

    Stop looking for hand outs, bro. Earn it like the rest of them by flipping beer swag.

    There are just as many "clear the calendar" and "f5 for the win" comments.
    All people need to do is sale or razzle a 4 pack they have sitting in their fridge and it's paid for.

    The second perk is exclusive access to the Otis and Bean bottle before general public. Chance to buy...not included. I wonder if they'll justify the $100 ticket price after they sell out tomorrow and in the coming weeks.

    As a child my parents taught me a golden rule, you never thank anyone and then ask for money. Plain and simple. I have to disagree a bit with @jnance post above, while I have read those posts I have also read many more from regular customers,the lot lizard haze bro's who are taking this hard, and I don't disagree with them, we have seen the can line demographic, trust me folks, many of these poor souls don't have an extra $105 bucks laying around and yet they are the one's responsible for lining Henry's pockets with hoppy cash, ironically they will be the ones that get priced out this event. Monkish, you want to thank everyone for their loyal support, why don't you invite them up to your place free of charge, have special pricing on beers, discounts on food, and really look like your grateful and loving of their support.

    Cheers,

    Isn't that what Monkish did last year? No tickets, special release, discount pours. etc. Except they still got tons of flak for it because the haze bros made it a shit show with long lines, overnight shares, etc. With their demand and size it just doesn't work both ways.

    For $45, that better be one helluva a meal and giveaways. Not sure if $45 to be sober is worth dealing with a bunch of drunk bros though

    No one thought it wasn't going to sell out in a second. Come on, that's not the criticism. The extremely high price point is what the discussion is about.

    Besides, we all are aware that any of these going can easily flip that teku to be way in the black while also being blackout drunk in a torrance industrial parking lot. So it's like the old days of line shares.

    OTB Devotee (419) Sep 2, 2011 California

    Oh I dont think anyone ever doubted that it would be an instant sell out, 500 tickets is nothing, hell I've seen 17,500 tickets go in minutes. No I think the chatter here was more focused on the cost. Good for Monkish, they are dealing baby !

    I didn't try for this sale because I think the pricing and venue are a joke, but I wanted to chime in on your comment. I've been experiencing that zero quantity bug since around August of last year. Click "tickets" the second a sale starts, and quantity is selectable but only shows 0, then you have to refresh for it to show as an actual selectable quantity. Was working just fine before August, now it's been busted for half a year at this point. It's incredibly annoying for quick sales, i.e. some BL Stasis releases. I've reported it to Eventbrite twice and haven't heard back either time. They don't give a shit.

    That'd be awesome - I'd love all saison with Casey, SARA, Holy Mountain, Side Project, Tired Hands and Suarez coming; that'd work really well in SoCal "spring."

    $45 DD plus paying for parking in a lot, I wonder if parking is going to be like Doyer Estadium and cost $20. At 500 tickets it is probably like 300 people bought tickets, with the limit 2.

    I actually emailed Lindsay at Bottle Logic to have her check with Eventbrite's tech team on the issue. She said she'd check but I haven't heard anything since October. Emailed her again today to see if she can have them look into it since they'll probably listen to her more than they will us.

    Monktiki is very interesting. The pineapple, coconut, orange, and nutmeg hits your palate in waves. Wasn't a huge fan of Space Cookie, but I enjoy this one. I'm skeptical of the milkshake IPA style, but this is a fun beer.

    By the way, that line was an absolute nightmare. Was the worst that I've seen personally there, but then again I haven't been to many of these releases. Staying away from any future releases with sub-100 case counts for now on. Walking away with just a single 4-pack after waiting in line for an hour was not worth it.

    I've done a few Monkish lines myself. Not too bad the times I've went but now I'm leaning towards Modern Times now since they've landed in LA. High quality haze but with a much easier experience all around.

    Designated driver tickets have always been the worst deals at any brewery party I've ever been to. $6 worth of food and maybe a craft soda or coffee. I've never understood this, it's always such a ripoff. At one (big) anniversary party our DD had to beg for glassware that was supposed to be included because no one had told the folks at check in. Even then, $6 worth of food, a soda, and a glass all for $40 at that one. Nah. That's just dumb.

    Would you guys mind sharing what time approximately you have typically arrived there prior to or after opening for some of the releases you've been to? I'm coming in next month and am toying with the idea of trying for cans if they do a release while I'm there. Just curious to know how bad the process really is. Based on some of the comments, I'm leaning towards just going in for some growlers, but the thought of cans is alluring.

    I seem to recall during the Modern Times 4th Anniversary Jamboree the DD ticket was much cheaper, maybe $10? Doesn't make any sense for it to be much higher than that. But the thing is - as everyone already knows - Monkish knows they can charge almost whatever they want for anything and it will sell out.
