Already drinking bros.
At Smog City that is.
Why does Monkish feel the need to specify the limits are per person/per day for releases that never last more than a few hours?
So people dont get back in line and try and buy more?
For anyone that's there, is that chick that sells cans in line already selling?
Wouldn't per person cover that? Per day makes it seem like you can come back tomorrow for more.
Why does it matter?
You're right. Are we moving on from the usual kids, online sales, etc.. to now criticizing the wording they use?
Mostly just sad I've never tried a Monkish IPA and probably never will...unless the per day part is applicable.
They could change the wording to"per hour" and you probably wouldn't get any anyway.
Just head over there after they sell out and try it on draft, and they usually have at least 1 or 2 IPAs on for growlers.
It's on draft. You don't have to collect every can.
If she is its her last time buying beer at Monkish, they told me they are on to her and are going to 86 her if they haven't already.
76 cases Under City Lights, 37 With No Chain. 225 in line. Limit still 2 and 2 until we run out of With No Chain.
You mean Dot?
More than likely, @tokimedo can confirm/deny though.
She came by and offered me $150/4pk... I bought 3 on the spot!
Pretty smooth today today minus one thing.... there were A LOT of line cutters... most I've ever seen anywhere..."chat and cut" is pretty lame
Yeah, never seen her, but it be hilarious to see her get denied.
Is there a separate growler and draft line? last time i was there (months) there was only one line for both. hard to wait for a second round
To this date - there is still only one line for pours and growlers. I think they are in the process of adding a growler-only station to make things more efficient. Protip: always order 2 pours so you don't have to wait in line again and close out everytime (sometimes line gets ridiculous)
Still one line unless its been changed recently.
Doesn't their numbered ticket system take care of that? I thought I remember people on here saying that Monkish now checks a number that goes with your wristband, and only sells in the order the wristbands were handed out in.
I think he's talking about before the wristbands were handed out.
When I got to the front, they were calling out the wristband numbers as they cut them off to make sure no one was cutting.
That too, but I got there after wristbands and ppl were coming out of nowhere and saying hi to their bro's and then staying in line... I was able to chase one person away but the other 2 stayed.
It's tough to monitor the whole line but I'd be pissed if I missed out on beer due to someone cutting me
In my experience, they merely use the wristbands to mainly keep count of their allocations and know when to switch to a lower quantity. Near the end of the line - they don't even bother looking at wristbands, so if you came after they stopped handing them out - line cutters are able to do what they want.
They actually enforce the per person purchase, scanning the ID basically means that you can't cut back in until the folks with the wristbands are done and even then I've seen them turn folks away double dipping.
One thing to factor in is that there's a lot of folks who do go and say hi to their friends, I do it all the time, but then go back to their place in line. The # on the wrist band prevents folks from just jumping in as they do keep the count as they cut off the wristband.
This is Lights Out good. Nice hanging out with Victor and Sean as we filled up today. Its been a couple weeks since I've had any of Henry's elixirs, this was worth the break.
Also got a growler today. For the record Deadful Melody is solid for you crazy kids who like blonde Belgians
Just curious, but why is it that the DDH beers usually have lower carb than others? I've noticed Foggier and Deep Concentration both had less than most of Monkish's other beers and it looks like Lights Are Out is similar.
Also, any thoughts on lupulin powder? More breweries seem to be using it lately.
Haha. Likewise. Always good times when you got good company and leave with some monkish. Enjoy.
I've also had this same observation. The DDH beers are far less carbed than the normal beers. Lupulin powder is a little funky for me, sometimes the taste comes in too strong.
I did have Lights Are Out this weekend and it was amazing. Probably one of the best growler fills Monkish has offered in awhile - pretty similar to Deep Concentration, but a tad less hoppy. I was very impressed.
Interesting read on line-bro culture, with some words from Henry...
Interesting that it leaves out the sub-group of traders who are reselling the beer illegally.
Driving from Richmond to Brooklyn sounds awful, these people need a new hobby. I can't wait for there to be 100's of breweries making these and then no one will really care about these "special releases." I like hazy IPA's, but I can drink plenty of west coast IPA's that are better and with no hype.
“You party in the morning, then dad in the afternoon,”
Just this statement alone is so douchey.
Would rather drink West Coast IPAs anyways ... Not saying Monkish beer isnt great, but damn is it really worth standing in line for 4 hours for a few cans? And even if its profit, standing in line all that time for a couple hundred?
Just curious, would you standing in line for 1.5 or 2 hours for 8-12 Monkish cans? In addition to that, about a 30 min drive each way?
Just trying to gauge everyone's beer thresholds. Haha.
Can release today, new batch of Really Real
No, I think the max I'd wait is 15 mins, and I would want to guarantee cans before I left.
Man, the threat of rain did not scare away the people with strollers. Man. At least bring an umbrella. I know we disagree on this issue, but even you pro "children in beer lines" people have to agree there is a limit to this.
1 line pic up.
