Super floral. I like the LSD. Bottles for sale at France 44 yesterday $9.99.
It's the second best LSD I've ever tried.
Haven't had it on tap but out of the bottle it was delicious!
Cool, thanks. I have two bottles. Fell sucker to the concept and design. Glad to hear it's good.
You know, this was once a beer review website...
And MTV was once a music channel. At least we're talking about beer and not pregnant teenagers and Jersey meatheads.
You can still review too!
Not the point I was making. Not willing to derail the thread. Carry on.
Must have just missed you.
Curious. Seems right on target to be asking opinions of locals then. Almost like a... review?
I was just in and out of there on the way home in the late afternoon. I had some grilling to do!
Anyone still got Seviin on tap?
Pig and Fiddle had it on last night.
It may still be cheaper on tap, but Chicago Lake and Liquor Boy are supposed to get bottles in today. Best chance at a lower price.
i, too, am curious where i can go get a seviin on tap this afternoon.
Aaaand I stand corrected. More expensive than I've seen it so far, but no bottle limit. Only more expensive by $1
I was gonna say, Pentagram was really spendy at Liquor Boy, they probably still have some left. They have a pretty average to mediocre beer selection, though their bourbon and scotch selection is impressive. Good prices on liquor, average and in some cases high for beer.
Yeah Liquor Boy isn't as good as Chi Lake. Which is strange since they are the same company. They are phenomenal for the booze that they carry. Their beer selection leaves one wanting, but what they do get in I find is typically a couple bucks (at least) cheaper than other places. Apparently not so with Surly.
Not to derail the thread here. I may seek out some Seviin tonight if any is left on tap anywhere. Otherwise the Cacao Bender at Surly has me intrigued.
That has been my experience over at Liquor Boy, as well. Their beer prices have been on par with Four Firkins, but with only a fraction of the selection and none of the expertise of the employees. The only exception was about a month ago, I was gassing up at the Costco on the way for a weekend with friends at a lake cabin. I needed to get something that many people would like. I walked into Liquor Boy and found a stack of Hofbrau maibock there for $3.99 a six pack. That was a deal and a no brainer as far as what I was bringing up.
On the other hand, their booze and wine are great deals, although all I have purchased there besides the maibock were bottles of wine.
Brooklyn beers also go on sale at both stores for absurdly low prices quite frequently. Not going to knock your socks off by any means, but they are usually more than passable (especially for the 3.99-4.99 price range).
Bryant Lake Bowl still has it on tap.
That beer was tasty. Recommend it to anyone that digs fruit in their beer.
Cacao Bender at Surly taproom. Even better than you expect it to be.
Cherry infused Wee Jack at Town Hall last night.
Stanley's NE had Diminished Seviin and Black Note on last night
I had a glass of the Deschutes version yesterday at the Pig. The smoke was way less intense than the bottle I had a few weeks ago. Wondering if it was just me, or if anyone else had a similar experience with bottle vs tap? I'm now thinking that I will probably enjoy what the bottles will become.
$5 for 10oz @ the taproom today. And Cacao Bender. Not busy between 12-2; @AZCanteen for food truck today.
Like many have said (here, or other threads?) SeVIIn is less expensive on tap than in the bottle.
Can't speak to the difference between bottles and taps, but the Great Lakes version was cartoonishly smokey. Quite terrible. If you like licking an ashtray that's the beer for you.
Couldn't disagree more. Found the Great Lakes version more enjoyable than the Deschutes version. Deschutes was bottle; Great Lakes tap.
Sorry, but while I love the term "cartoonishly smokey," I can't say that it applies here. I had both side by side, twice at two different places on two different nights. While I definitely agree that the GL version is smokier, it doesn't even come close to some of the standards most thought of in regards to smoked beers, such as Aecht Schlenkerla. Personally, I would say that he Deschutes version was slightly under what I had expected on the smoke element, even though they are not too far different from each other in regards to smokiness. I think that this beer did a better job of hitting their mark (each release) than say something like the class of 88 barleywine.
Seviin on anywhere today?
Fair enough. To me, as I also had them side by side, I found the Great Lakes to be over the top smokey. Smokey to the point of unpleasantness. Maybe the smoke in the Deschutes version was subdued, therefore enhancing the Great Lakes in my mind. I don't know. But I did not care for it.
Is Woden Weizen on anywhere?
Looking at it on the tap list at Blue Door Longfellow right now
Pat's Tap tapped a keg of Seviin when I was there for a late lunch yesterday. Had plenty left as of yesterday afternoon. They also have Southern Tier 2xIPA for $3.25 all month. A pretty solid IPA, but damn delicious at $3.25. Bonus: If you have a Chinook book you can get a buy one get one free lunch.
