    It may be old news but I noticed yesterday W6 revived their $10 pint and a crowler deal on sundays. Can’t really beat that locally.

    Same Baba variants as last year? Is Ethereal getting lazy?

    They always do different/new tap variants, and they dropped Breakfast Baba bottles on Black Friday, but until people stop buying the 4-pack as it stands, they aren't planning on changing up.

    I for one love all the variants as is. I would be very disappointed if they changed it up. That being said, a rotating 5th variant would be a dope addition

    Anything interesting going on in Louisville this month? I thought I heard tell of one or two Lexington breweries opening tasting rooms in town? Any good seasonal stuff at the local breweries? Thanks

    There's usually special releases at Akasha once a week, so I'd just drop in on a Friday. Mile Wide is doing Buku in cans in the next couple weeks, so they might do some special tappings for that one. I'd just run around a bit and see what's what!

    It’s their big non-adjunct stout, yep. Coming out next Friday.

    Hey, Fletch, is regular canned W6 Snake Eyes out up there yet? Haven't seen it in Louisville and missed out altogether last year.

    Someone will surely tell me if I'm wrong, but the annual cans release around the Super Bowl, so new ones should be coming soon.

    I bought W6 Snake Eyes earlier this week at Cox in J-town.

    West Sixth is opening a barrel aged facility/nanobrewery in NuLu. In Lexington, Ethereal is opening up a second location. It's expected to be more of a brewpub type establishment.

    Any thoughts or feels about falls city? I'm staying right by their taproom but I didn't realize they were any more than a label. Probably stop by since its walking distance and they were advertising 3.50 pints of dunkel but I'd love any warnings

    They bottled a super-awful beer called Horse Piss once. I used them as extras in trade boxes.

    Ya my only experience was bottles of what I think was just labeled "falls city beer" that was not best. The 3.50 pints of dunkel might draw me in but with akasha and atg just a few steps further I'll probably pass

    I found one 4-pack along my regular routes in Louisville, one more than I got last year. I don't get out to the big Total Wine type places that much, but remember a shelf full a month after it came out two years back, and cases at Kroger. Seems to come and go much quicker now, at least around here.

    Horse Piss was actually Bluegrass, not Falls City.

    I don't think I've ever had their stuff... but I've heard good things about Hipster Repellent. One of those beers I keep meaning to get around to trying.

    AtG has a bba stout with amburana wood on right now that tastes like straight toasted coconut. Not my.jam really but for folks who are into that it really tastes like some kind of chocolate/coconut macaroon.

    Oh, I've been tasked with delivering a 3L Fiftyfifty magnum to Baba Day this year. Bring a long straw.
