    He moved on to Goose Island from Stubs & now is the Summit rep. I can't remember the ins-and-outs of his tattoos, but he certainly has plenty. He used to show up at events once in a while, but I haven't seen him in over a year...maybe he's busy working (which would be a shame).

    30-odd taps simply isn't an adequate number to pass muster, these days.

    Pretty nice list going at Mackenzie Pub
    http://mackenziepub.com/drink/beer/

    Just called and they said it was up to date as of yesterday.
    Don't know if all are still on, but of the 3 that I specifically asked about:

    Cacao Bender - on
    Hopothermia - on
    Fresh Squeezed - ran out (went through 5 kegs this week, but will be getting more soon)

    I love Mackenzies. One of the first craft centered bars I found when I moved here. Haven't been since, maybe, November or December. I love Hercules and want to try some Laughing Panda. Thanks for the heads up.

    3 Squares is tapping SeVIIn tomorrow night @ 6:00 pm.

    Or if it's going to be like when they tapped Diminished - it'll be 2 hours later.

    I will up the ante here a bit and go so far as to say that it is very good.

    I was at Haute Dish on Friday and they had a nice little list of Odell since they have a pairing dinner coming up.

    The Tree Shaker was great off the tap, and the Friek was pretty good.

    I'd also recommend checking out Buffalo Tap down in Savage NOW, i was delightfully surprised with their tap selection. They do a few special kegs until they run out, then get new ones. Have had some great selections over the last few months. http://www.buffalotap.com/

    Last night I had Deschutes Fresh Squeezed, Two Brothers 16th Anny, and was surprised at the North Coast Rasputin Nitro-Tap, it was fan-freaking-tastic.

    Not a tap event, but the Ale Jail busted out a serious collection of beers today. They've probably been ransacked already, but I thought it was worth posting.

    i saw them post that on twitter and decided it wasn't worth it to try. would have been sweet if you were there and had first go at it, however.

    Agreed. It was pretty obvious that everything I really wanted was going to the first 2 people to get there but I still got a BA Bigfoot (which they brought out later) when I arrived at 4:40. The worst is having nothing to do at work and still not being able to leave.

    I feel like they should regulate how many cellar release bottles can be purchased in total when its such a thin release. Maybe I'm just jealous though.

    ba bigfoot? nice score! i wouldn't be complaining. I still haven't tracked one of them down. cellar releases are pretty cool. just wished i could actually hit more of them up!

    Just a thought, but when the August version of this thread is made we should incorporate good finds in stores.

    I do like that idea. Is there any way to get info on when cellar releases might occur? That one really seemed out of the blue. Found out about it like 40 minutes later and nearly everything was gone.

    i wouldn't mind if they are super good.... like cellar sales or cantillon. but i like this thread too much to have it clustered with posts such as "I just found ruinten on the shelves at so and so".

    There will be some more out there soon. We usually post the tappings on the Original Gravity Facebook page or tweet on the Orig_Grav twitter feed. I can throw a comment up on this thread too.

    Agreed, I was mighty impressed by this beer. On another note, what does everyone think of Town Hall Lanes exclusive THB Super Strike Lager? It reminds me a lot of Grain Belt with its nice sweetness and mild breadiness. I could certainly down a number of them while throwing some rocks.
