    Since Shaun's no longer with RAM as of tomorrow, I figured I'd start the new thread. Super excited for Shaun, and even more excited for the beer he'll be pumping out of this new brewery!

    Extends my drive from 20 minutes to 30 minutes... not even. Not bad.

    And I'll take it any day if it means Shaun's stuff is going to be on draft ALL the time.

    It wouldn't et me correct it after I typed it. My apologies to Shaun for butchering the spelling...

    God, if they distro....Imagine having to chase down juicy all summer long....

    Potentially good news as Villa Park is probably 20 minutes closer for me. Maybe I'll have a chance to try one of this much hyped beers.

    Wonder if he has an ownership stake in this brewery.

    That's the first thing I thought also. If you are brewing at his level I would expect you get some ownership stake and not just a salary

    You wont see distro out of Villa Park until they make more than the brewery and Ardmore can sell.

    I just thought about that. I haven't visited Ardmore in a while but would have to if they got Shaun's stuff. Make it members only please! :slight_smile:

    Noon Whistle and Shaun 3 miles apart? Now that's a nice 1-2 punch for your Saturday afternoon. More Co needs to grab a crowler machine too!

    Is there an ownership connection to Ardmore Station?

    To be clear, I meant Ardmore for distributing a theoretical supply. That half-serious post had nothing to do with the Ardmore card in my wallet of course.

    Yes, owners of Ardmore also own More Brewing.

    By the way, More is like 2 blocks from my house, if you took the longest line at a RAM release and stretched it out, it'd pass my front door!

    Anyone try any of More's beer before?

    If there isn't an equity stake with creative control, this is going to be like Mike from Mikerphone where he bounces around a couple more times in the next few years...

    So what you're saying is that all of us can come camp out on your lawn for releases - right?

    I like the old school pizza place right across the street - Michael Anthony's. It's a small old school pizza parlor that makes a good dish. Could see me hitting those up consecutively...

    I interpreted that as he can hold places in line for us since he has no excuse not to be first in line that early given the distance to the place.

    One other thing is I really hope More doesn't require their own growlers for fills (if and when that becomes an option). Too many places already require their own, and I certainly don't need another one.

    They should at least let me use my 2 RAM growlers since those are pointless now :stuck_out_tongue:

    I just bought the flip top one with NE Slapper, thinking I'll be going there regularly for refills! I'm hoping Justin the brewer can pump out some solid offerings so I can still get some use out of it.

    My 8 csentes (2 cents + 6 sense) is this: if RAM can easily replicate Sean's recipes,which given the lines for cans prove to be every measure of success, how come these aren't being produced at every other location?
