    New thread for February . . .

    Lines! Chairs! Bad parents! Telling Henry how to run his business!

    And maybe . . . beer?

    IIRC, it was Deep Concentrations on Thursday, 1/5. Think it was 2 days after the Foggy Window release.

    Beats is Infinite before that on 12/22.

    You sire are correct. The last Friday release was Bomb Atomically.

    Who knows... I hope it's today though. Running low on beer for once.

    If the can release is on Saturday alongside Noble, Mumford and Casa, it may very well be the Super Bowl for the haze bros

    O.P should have a little more info so we don't repeat the same 4 pages of questions about how the weekly can releases work.


    Basic info: The Website has updates by midday Monday about how many releases per week will happen. They generally release the info via Instagram around 1:30-2:15 on the day of release. General production is anywhere between 70-160 cases. Limits also vary between 3x 4pks to as little as 4-6 cans. The line generally starts even before the announcements by the Haze Laborers who stand there for some reason daily hoping for a release. Generally speaking, they "sell out" within about 1 1/2 to 2 hours after release. So getting there are opening at 4pm may not be enough to secure beer. Wrist bands are given out and IDs are scanned to prevent double dipping and line cutting. No parking in the lot prior to 5:30 on weekdays to not piss off the neighbors and Stroller parking to the left next to the 2nd dumpster

    People need to learn that info the hard way - through battling LA traffic and standing in line next to kids and stoners (the horror!).

    Yes, good idea. These NE forums have good first pages:

    I'll try to work up something similar for next month.

    And don't forget: If anyone criticizes you for bringing your kid to a release just say that it's just like taking them to the hardware store and you're having quality bonding time.

    I don't think Henry knows the harm he's causing, making these Haze Bros wait this long for cans. I'm hearing horror stories of Haze Bros having to look for actual work, can't buy food or replacement stroller wheels due to Credit Card being maxed out from past can releases.

    Since he used the word "guessing" of course there is a chance.

    Some might say his prognostication virtually guaranteed a Thursday release.
