    Time for a new updated thread I think as we hit the summer months. Per usual check the website for the usual updates, can releases and the ongoing expansion construction. No whining about neckbeards however ! Let's keep it beer, if that's possible.

    To kick things off. A brand new beer with a completely different hop bill combo, Citra, Simcoe and El Dorado. Great stuff.

    Cheers,

    Got another growler fill of Numbers yesterday. Eric was telling me it's their fastest selling pilsner by far. In fact, they may have a pilsner lack for a few weeks

    One of my faves for sure, I have gone through a few growlers of this so far.

    Damn, Numbers is still on!? ....I haven't had more growlers apart from the first two on release. Maybe it's time to grab more for the weekend.

    So are we not talking about the canned collab release with Sante?

    It’s on, go get some and tell us how it was, they brewed enough for 560 allotments, should last until 6. I’m stuck at my office.

    Cheers

    Got some. It's pretty good and easy to drink. A lot of people left after getting their allotment so the taproom wasn't too crazy

    Nope. But that doesn't mean it isn't a worthy beer. It's quite good

    I'm sure it is, two amazing brew teams. If I was anywhere near Monkish at the right time today I would have grabbed some too, but alas real life takes center stage.:rolling_eyes:

    40 cases no line. But I’m home on my couch already.

    OTB Devotee (402) Sep 2, 2011 California

    On my way home soon. I do like this current trend of larger case counts and that most releases now have several cases left with no lines for those who can't do the daily lot lizard thing and if near Monkish later in the day may have a chance at getting cans.

    Cheers,

    OTB Devotee (402) Sep 2, 2011 California

    Well goes to show I don't know what the F I'm talking about, still 20+ cases left AFTER 6PM !!!

    Cheers,

    185 cases usually means after 6 esp with a 2 pack limit... I always feel like sweet spot is either right at 4 because you can get your wristband and then get a couple pours inside then come back into line or a little after 5 cause the line has died down and the parking lot is open

    I'm seeing that Cans are lasting longer, maybe because the Limits have been 2pp for like the last 7 releases. I'm liking this because it gives others a chance to taste this liquid gold. got my 2 4pk yesterday. showed up around 5ish, took me about 30mins. loving their new system they got. in and out ez for the most part. Keep it up Henry!!!

    Monkish is throwing the perverbial Kershaw curve balls this week. Tossing out a second unannounced can release then offering the same beer the next day for growler fills, I ain’t complaining because I love GSPs and I can’t get to the can releases, I kinda like this new edgy stuff going on.

    Cheers

    Hmm, that might hurt the trade value on my cans, but I guess thats great for the people that cant get the cans.

    If Trillium and Treehouse can keep values fairly high, I'm sure Monkish can, so long as the hype lives on.

    Let me preface by saying that I do not trade, I send beer to a select group of friends when the urge hits. Monkish has dropped several beers that are canned then released for tap and growler fills, has been that way for quite some time and I'm quite sure it hasn't effected it's desirability/value one bit. Don't know why you suddenly think your cans will be devaluated.

    Cheers,

    because Monkish first releases cans then maybe a month later or so they offer fills of that beer that they released in cans, so the cans still hold value because you can't get that beer until Henry decides to release it for fills at the brewery

    Dude do ever listen to yourself. It’s just beer. Enjoy it. Don’t stress.

    That's not necessarily true grass hopper, the latest was Even More Props and Stunts which was released first on tap then for cans soon after, Monkish won't diminish in whatever trade value it holds until the market saturates which is not that far away.

    Stop treating beer like Pokemon cards. Lamest shit imaginable and bad for the craft beer community.

    I couldn't say it better. The saturation of world class beers that are easily accessible will be the death knell to this activity, I give it a year at best. I do think that if you took a look at the demographic's of heavy traders I would bet most are in their early to mid 20's who treat craft beer as I did with baseball cards when I was young, it's checking that card off the checklist, I honestly think for the most part it's not about the beer but the need for instant gratification/ affirmation that you drank said beer and can post a pic to prove it. Hey, it's not my jam and I abhor the insanity of it BUT......to each his own, AND.... as they say, this too shall pass. And all this from a confessed huge Monkish fan.

    Cheers

    lol I love the comparison to pokemon cards, but you know what!? I use to love pokemon cards, so to think I could trade beer like pokemon cards makes it fun for me. I don't see how it's bad for the community. Can I ask you why you think that?

    It’s bad that people recruit grandma, grandpa, parents, and the rest of the family in order to get huge hauls so they can resell the beer for $80/pack on line. This means less beer for the rest of us who have jobs and can’t sit in the parking lot waiting for the latest juice bombs. The trade/resell game is what has ruined it.
