    What's the cost on hipster stout? They are 12 oz bottles right?

    I was not able to attend the BBIMM release but a buddy picked it some for me. i know for a fact that some of the guys that were taking 6-10 cases were from the East side that bought for like 10 people. does it look bad, yes. not saying its right either but it isnt one person drinking that much mayan..... at least i would hope not!

    Essentially the same issue/shitshow that people complained about with Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock release last year

    that i would have no insight on. from what i have heard Kuhnhenn's releases are a little crazy anyway.

    don't listen to beershits, he is as much in the know about Bell's stuff as playaplaya. people are starting that rumor thinking it will make their oddside/bcbs experience less crowded. bell's doesn't plan shit out like that, ever.

    Eh I was pretty much following up the comment that I'd made right before it with more grade A Bullshit. I thought it seemed obvious. I guess not as much as it needed to ha-ha.

    very true. i have my ears and had hopes just so i could drink some... but making it next year will also be easier for me! too much goodness to buy!! cheers and maybe i will see you around the state at the releases

    I'm so back and forth on this. 1:45 each way for me. Don't know if I can swing it since I don't want to bring the little guy

    not sure of you distro but try and make the most of it and stop at some random bottle shops or a brewery you can get a growler to go..... i understand the little one issues.

    Ok, best chance of shortest or no line? Showing up at 9? Do I need to show up early? Or let it cool of, and swing by later? Thanks

    If you want a chance at Hazel's nuts with a small line, show up about 10:30-11. If you don't care about that beer, show up about 1-3pm and I would expect you'll be golden.

    I'll be there around 9pm. We'll see what happens. Worst case scenario, I drink a lot of good beer.

    I don't think biting into a hazelnut would even have as much flavor as Hazels Nuts. That was a freaking nutty beer.

    Saw Mokka Munt will be released Friday, too. Any insight on quantity, bottle limits, or price? @joshflashgordon

    Where did you see that? Odd Side released a schedule and Mokka Munt isn't until December

    I was under the impression that I wasn't working Black Friday, but it appears that I was wrong... Fortunately, I'll be able to avoid the Friday shift by working 6am-4pm (earlier today), going back in at 3am (Tues. morning) - 3pm, and then working 10 hours Wednesday. I plan on being there around 9, regardless of the shit show I'm going to have to endure.

    After learning about 30 minutes ago that the local store (about 1.5 miles away) will be getting BCBS, I'd really like to make sure I can get back in time to get some of that goodness as I've never tried it.

    Just had 2015 Hipster-a lot smokier than 2014 for sure. Still really good but I do hope the smokiness dies down a little.

    Hazels nuts was amazeballs.

    Total opposite for me. I had em both earlier too. Loved Hipster and thought Hazel's was meh (as compared to Hipster). Both are great beers.

    Booooo. Smoke can easily ruin beers for me. That's too bad as the smoke is what I'd want to be the least of flavors to taste in Hipster Brunch.

    If its any consultation, I do not enjoy smoky beers either. Yet, I still really enjoyed Hipster.

    If it's smoky like bacon I could probably find a way to be OK with it. Smoky like smoked malts I may have a problem with it.

    We have a small amount of Mokka Munt that will be at the Black Friday release. It's the same pricing as the others, $5 a bottle, $17.50 4pk, and $100 a case. It will have a 1 case limit. We will also be releasing more later in the year. I hope to meet a lot of you guys there Friday. Say hi, I will be the one dressed as "Hazel"...

    I'm all set lol. I've learned to kiss the ass of those selling me beer, and so I should be more than good on this front :wink:.

    Anything for you Sir :wink:. I definitely had that coming though hahaha. More than anything I meant to say "This means if my local store has it, I'm guessing MANY stores will get at least some". Apparently in my half awake/half sober stupor, I left that line out lol.
