    Anyone know if CBC is cool w/filling other brewery branded growlers at the release?

    Is Creeper slated for distro next week? I saw CBC brewed the Yakima Fresh yesterday, can expect to see that in 3-4 weeks.

    Supposed to be extremely limited distribution. I'd expect a few finer bottle shops around town to get it, but it'll be hard to find.

    According to the email I received, they will fill other growlers. 64 oz only, though.

    So unlike Bodhi, it's not based on CBC sale volume of their other beers?

    Sunday Mole Stout, Deschutes Sagefight IPA (brewed with sage and juniper berries - yes please) and Four String Rectifier DIPA in tall boys (delicious double) all arrived at GE Market District Grandview today. My lunches are getting expensive.

    'Champion Ground' hitting distro at the end of the month... Sometimes I'm critical of Jackie O's, but that beer is just straight ridiculous.

    Creeper distro will be similar to Bodhi, except a one time bottling versus Bodhi's "every few weeks" bottling. Don't take this as an exact distro list, but I'd suggest looking at the same places that receive Bodhi.

    And yes, we'll fill other growlers. Plus we will have growlers for sale at the brewery. 64oz only.

    Curious as to why It's 64oz only for a 10% beer?

    ^ funny that's the one thing you caught from his post. Is the extra 2% abv really going to deter you from getting a growler fill?

    I see Creeper kegs have already hit at least two places I frequent (Ray's Place Fairlawn and Lizardville)--that's a crazy fast turn around.

    honestly, yes. I love Creeper, but a 64oz growler would may way too much for one sitting for me personally. and 64oz of 8% bodhi would be too much as well. I understand it's probably to make things simpler for the event and I'm okay with that, just curious why it wouldn't be 32oz only is all.

    Keep in mind we do not have a taproom. This is all set up in the middle of our warehouse. In order to handle the transactions, we're selling one color token for regular pours and another color token for growler fills. So it's one price point for all growlers. Tokens will be purchased at one location, and then u get your growler filled at the growler station, etc.

    That and 32oz growlers are a pain in the ass

    Wow, sure is a fitting name for this beer :stuck_out_tongue: I don't think I've ever seen Creeper around here ever although I'm sure it has been around, I just wasn't fast enough to see it.

    I drank a 64oz growler of Creeper at my clambake last year. I probably could've pissed my pants and people would've thought, "Yeah, that's appropriate."

    One time I polished off a 64 oz Bodhi by myself in one sitting and woke up on the floor with beer barf on my couch. I no longer buy full-size growlers of dipas.

    Seriously?!? You do know that they make 32 oz growlers with the EXACT same mouth opening and growler shape as the most commonly used 64 oz versions? Most places that fill the 32 oz version tell me they are no different and are easier than the 64 oz due to less liquid loss.

    Just messing around, but joking aside, if the growler is filled properly, drink half in one sitting, screw the cap back on real tight and have the other half another time. I did that with a 64oz growler of Bodhi that was filled very poorly and didn't notice much of a decline in the second sitting. Its still worth it for Creeper.

    I took down a 32oz growler of Creeper a couple months ago while watching Mr. Robot. I thought I was going crazy but turns out Mr. Robot was the crazy one. Phew.

    Sooooo I heard we will be seeing 4pks and 750ml bottles of Founders CBS at the end of next year. Founders is dropping the Backstage Series and going with the Barrel Aged Series. Next year should one hell of a year for Founders!

    My best friend works at lizardville. Everytime we get together I know he is gonna rant about 3 floyds for 15 minutes. How someone came in asking if they had any and he says no but check out these other examples of the style and the person says naw and walks out he gets so annoyed.

    Three floyds was amazing in 2010. But everyone seems to have caught up. That trend will just continue with all the new breweries popping up which is great for the consumer.

    I do this on purpose. That way, when they say they don't have any it gives me an out from buying anything. And I leave.

    I pass on zombie dust anymore. Not because I don't like it. It's an amazing beer and I actually love it. But I've had it plenty and in my mind the guy driving around town in search of it can have the bottle I would have bought rather than me lucking into it having no searched it out. I'll grab the head hunter or mystic mama and be just fine.

    The Sunday mole stout is pretty awsome. I like it a lot I mean it taste very similar to the regular stuff.

    I drank a Colombia festbier or whatever it's called and it caught me off guard how good it was I really liked it a lot.

    Also did anyone try the fatheads Jameson thing? I loved it and thought it was awsome.

    Had a fairly fresh Land Grant Glory last night as well as a CBC Festbier. Both were good. The Glory was better than the last time I had it. More Citra than I remember it having previously.

    The rain delay at the OSU game was the first time I had a Glory, paid some absurd amount for a single can but it hit the freaking spot.

    Outside of Glory I haven't been overly impressed with Land-Grant offerings. I tried their new DIPA Neutron over the weekend, and it was a very pleasant surprise. Cans are hitting around town today.

    Central OH folks; do yourself a favor and go get a growler of 3MCs at Homestead. This stuff is amazing and flying under the radar

    Having a Sunday Mole Stout now, and have to agree, it's very similar to the original, as in it's very coffee forward, and very light on the chili peppers, but has less body and complexity. The most recent SMS was one of the biggest beneficiaries of barrel treatment I've seen in a stout in a while, and to name Mole pretty much the same, but subtract the barrel part is a bit odd. This is thinner, has no head and little carbonation. Still loving the ridiculous amount of coffee though.

    YES! 1 of the the few benefits of moving from Columbus to Newark is closer Homestead access! They just did a smoked wee heavy ale that was hitting the spot on a breezier day. Can't think of too many smoked/wee heavy hybrids out there outside of Millersburg Doc's Scotch but I like em!

    Yep! I went there with two growlers thinking 3MCs and a lower ABV option but had to go with the Smokum for the 2nd one. I love smoked beers and I love Scotch ales so it was a no brainer. Looking forward to crack that one tomorrow.
