    DDH Oh....Forever is another one of those underrated Other Half gems.

    Anyone been to the Rochester location yet? Thinking about hitting it up on my way back home from Thanksgiving. Mainly want to enjoy the mindf*ck of being at Other Half in an uncrowded (hopefully) farm environment.

    Contains daydream is one of the less good beers I’ve had from OH in a while

    I couldn't even finish my pour at the tap room which is the first in a while, I can't quite put my finger on why it was not good though.

    I got my buddy a 4 pack, he left me a can, maybe I will just give it back lol. Is it Daydream Layers-esque?

    I have the Bristol Mountain High last night, at first I wasn't feeling it but when it got a bit warmer I really liked it

    Was going to make the trip in today, but this veil release is making me think twice. Any chance it's not a shitshow? Was going to get there right around noon. Thanks

    I'm surprised there hasn't been like an Instagram story about The Veil cans, I'm assuming everything is sold out?

    They just updated it. Sold out of everything and only $6 tasters. Get the fuck out of here with that shit Veil

    Also noticed some total pricing nonsense on the 4pks. Selling some of their beers that sell for $14-$16 per 4pk at their brewery for $20 or more at OH. Then again, from their business perspective it makes sense to align their beers with the OH pricing when they're here, people will happilay pay it.

    Ya, they voluntarily chose to bring their beer to OH to sell, to be honest seeing as how these were all released 2+ weeks ago they probably needed to get rid of it. And they likely have their own truck, they're not paying a distributor. And they're probably coming up here to collab it up as Papas mentioned above, so it's all just a cash grab!

    I agree but it's the market we shop in. It's all a cash grab. The fact that other half and veil expanded and raise prices are a damn shame. Beer should be getting cheaper not more expensive

    It's also easier on OH if Veil is charging the same price.

    I kept thinking I was just getting bad cans from the Veil, but after like the 6th or 7th one I finally had to accept they aren’t as good as their reputation indicates. Still don’t get how they were the longest line at green city. They weren’t even in the top 10 of IPA brewers imo.

    The Hop Showers Index (HSI) drooped 230 points today, taking it to a low not seen since the Triangle Test release, as multiple members were docked points for caring too much about a veil pop up.

    for anyone who doesn’t have Bloomberg ^

    Fine. Back to scheduled programming...

    Has anyone noticed they will have Mosaic/Motueka and Mylar as part of the Binnys Chicago release this weekend? So while they “sold out” of it before last weekend, they really just didn’t want to give it to us Uber important locals. I mean it’s nonsense we had to choose between 8 other IPAs on Saturday, they clearly hate us.

    Veil... yawn. Personally surprised I'm enjoying the Double Sunset Worka more than I did Sleeping Forever. Am I #pastryboi now? Fack.

    Plus one for Oh... Forever. So good.

    I too am having this dilemma. I keep telling myself that they’ve really dialed in some of these high ABV stouts over the past year, but then the Suarez half of my brain points out that that’s total nonsense

    I was forced into a Sophie’s Choice type scenario between Space and Short Dark due to a horrific credit card balance. Christ it was hard but went with Short Dark just because it’s been so long.

    Reminder meetup in a week!

    I was able to swing by Bitters and Esters for some things and snagged a little bit of 'tose to bring for anybody looking to try it on it's own. In the mean time I'll just be adding that and some oatmeal to all my standard IPAs for a little DIY dream treatment.

    I swung by around ten and there was only about fifteen people in line but then there was about eight-ten people doing a full on bottle share off to the side.

    also, first time stopping by on Saturday in a long time (SD and SDH brought me back...) and I could live with this new OH with like fifteen beers for sale and no lines. Tough to decide with so many choices. Finally.

    although all us idiots will be back at the wee hours of the morning for the 6th anniversary in sub 30 degree temps in February, like moths to a flame
