    Ectogasm on tap anywhere?

    Cans are great. Has to be killer on tap, right?

    The Drekker tap room in Fargo has Ectogasm on tap, as does JL Beers in Grand Forks. I found no one in the Mpls/St Paul metro pouring Ectogasm at the moment. Ansari's in Eagan has in the past had Ectogasm on tap. Grizzly's in Plymouth has a Drekker sour beer on tap, so check with these two metro bars to find out if Ectogasm is on deck. Use Untappd to check around.

    If there are import beer nerds out there, Happy Gnome just tapped De Glazen Toren Saison D'Erpe Mere. It's transcendental.

    Cryo Citra and BA Abduction still on at Maple Tavern. Paid $5.25 for a 10oz pour of BA Abduction for lunch today, not sure if it was a happy hour or a mistake, but works for me.

    Visited Grizzly's in Plymouth for the first time tonight. Very impressed with the tap list. I had Ninja vs. Unicorn, TG Pompeii, and Lupulin Brunch Stout. Really enjoyed the N vs. U which I hadn't had before, and Pompeii is a long-time favorite. I thought Brunch Stout was excellent with nice coffee and maple notes, though maybe light on barrel if I'm really being picky. Dial that in and I think this is a beer to be reckoned with.

    My buddy who is less of a beer nerd had BT The Magic Man, Dreamyard, and Hooey. Liked Dreamyard the best, but thought all were tasty. I thought The Magic Man looked like pure orange juice - the others were hazy as well but that one took it to another level.

    There were also a few others on tap that looked interesting, but I have to work tomorrow. Pipeworks BA Abduction, CW BA Stout, a Crooked Stave BA sour, and a handful of other nice local offerings.

    Lots of BA stouts on at New Bohemia GV. Avery Tweak, CBS, BCBS ‘16 ‘17, silhouette 15-17 + vanilla bean ‘17, Cassian sunset and others. VB silhouette, CBS, and one other that I can’t remember were build your own $30 flight only. Full pours were around $9-$10. From what I heard last night full pours will be offered today of the flight only beers from yesterday.

    Thanks, my wife really wanted to try this and was hoping it would be pour around 4 when she passes by on her way home.

    Wild Mind's Hot Lips was very good. Reminds me of Pash Bash which I think this was a variation of that beer

    France 44 just tapped Hot Lips. That alongside Abraxas and Ectogasm make for a nice little tap list for the weekend.

    :rolling_eyes: I thought Surly, plus Summit too were against the haze craze.
    Can't beat them so join them?

    Quick question... Does Modist do growler/crowler fills?

    They have 750ml crowlers, and i think they will fill any clean 64oz growlers.

    If they do fills, I do believe it is limited as to what they will fill (basically core beers).

    Thanks for the tips @nograz & @gatornation . Heading to Minneapolis for the TMBG show at First Ave., tomorrow night. Planning on hitting up Wild Mind in the afternoon and Modist after dinner. Looking forward to bringing home a few growlers from each. Any other local deliciousness I should keep an eye out for? Mostly gonna be downtown.

    Edit: Lame, just just checked Wild Mind's to-go and they are out of Crowlers till Friday.:slight_frown:

    The Lift Bridge event as Ansari's last night was excellent. BA Silhouette & the Vanilla BA Silhouette were hard to tell apart, but who would ever complain about "just" BA Silhouette?

    But the Brandy Commander stole the show both us. Fantastic beer. Not sure if they're still flowing today, but if they are, highly recommend it.

    Just came from Ansari's and can confirm both Brandy Commander and BA Sil are flowing, and are tasting amazing. Vanilla has kicked. Also Operation CoHoperation was on and tasting mighty fine.

    Straight Hash Homie makes its return this year for a 4/20 release party at the Taproom only. This is going to be a party you don’t want to miss out on!

    We have two great bands from the Twin Cities performing with Wicked Garden headlining. Several food trucks will be available to choose from with inside Taproom seating, outside patio seating and the outside tent will be setup with beer being served both inside and outside.

    Sporty’s still has th Bell’s Consecrator Doppelbock on tap (and it sounds delicious). They also regularly have a craft tap beer on special for $3/pint. Currently, it’s Ale Asylum Velveteen Habbit IPA. It’s a decent beer, especially for that price.
