    Not sure if there's ever been a continuing Narrow Gauge thread, but we'll see if this one can gain momentum throughout the year.

    Today they are releasing King OJ Run. This will be a first time release. OJ Run is one of their Flag ships and their first double IPA. This one is is a double dry-hopped triple IPA. 10%

    I get a run of Narrow Guage stuff delivered from family a few times a year, always solid. Loved OJ Run and the last DDH OJ Run I had.

    Hi guys. I'll be visiting Narrow Gauge next month for my first time, well I'm visiting STL for my first time actually. Was wondering if there is any public transportation around Florissant. I'm staying at Maplewood, and I'm concerned if I should return my car at the STL airport then visit Florissant, or visit the brewery, drink less take out more, then drive back to Florissant.

    Thanks!

    The airport is not far from Narrow Gauge. Short Uber ride.

    Agree on Uber. Public transportation sucks that far out but it's just a 15 minute ride from the airport. Uber will be like $20.

    Does Narrow Gauge generally follow a release schedule? I'll be in town in a couple weeks. hoping they do a release that weekend as well but guessing I'm out of luck since they are doing a few beers this weekend.

    It’s usually cans on Tuesdays. Almost nothing sells out quickly anymore.

    they hardly ever do weekend releases. Monday is canning day so it’s typically Tuesday for releases and you get whatever is left over on the weekend.

    except the PB stout!

    Heard there was a pretty good line today for the PB stout. Curious how quickly it sells out.

    Pretty impressive for a non BA stout to sell out that quickly at 8cans per person at 11am on a Tuesday in Florissant, MO!

    Agreed. I'd like to know who has the disposable income to drop 40 bucks on beer and also doesn't have to be at work on a Tuesday morning? I'd like their job please.

    exactly. as an out-of-towner i have zero shot at this but even if i was local Tuesday morning releases just seem odd.

    I'm coming out to St. Louis on the 17th or 18th (yet to be determined on actual date) - anyone interesting in picking me up a four pack of this (maybe even get you to grab a four pack of soemthing else too) FT of some Dancing Gnome or Grist House I can bring with me from Pittsburgh? Live fairly close to both, so check the release schedules over the next two weeks and let me know - happy to do a friendly trade - just messaqe me. I work in Creve Ceour (I probably butchered that spelling) on occasion. Just know this will be gone by time I get there.

    I have a friend headed across state tomorrow. If any is available, I may be able to get her to pick up an extra pack for you. We'd most likely have to ship though, as the beer will be back with me on the other side of the state the weekend of the 17th/18th.

    Glad it worked out. My friend ended up getting sick, so she wasn't able to make it anyway.
