    How about a 4th anni re-brew?

    Hoping to pick up AIE. It'll be fun to see if it lives up to the post sleeper hype. I do remember it really standing out at the time.

    I know someone will try to justify this, but lining up at 4am in 20 degree weather (420!) for collabs that are being re-released is one of the weirder human phenomenons I could imagine. Does anyone other than traders/label collectors/resellers really care that much about tasting these beers again to do that? They aren’t even going to be made the same as when they were originally released let’s be honest.

    But I guess OH is pandering to the real fans with this release

    Yes, I was never a line guy myself - more like a collective “we.”

    Anyone who says they can compare these to the original releases is lying. No way you can remember how they tasted from that long back after so many different beers in between anyway.

    I hope so, I’d love to roll up late morning and grab a 4 of each

    I’m gonna take a chance and probably show up around 10:30-11:00. I loved Like Whoa, would be awesome to get some more.

    Wait so I’m confused - is there no 5th anniversary beer? If not, definitely not going

    Final collab:

    All Lactose Everything DIPA (8.6%) with @Bordendairy When our buddies at Borden Dairy hit us up with some fresh lactose, our minds started going crazy figuring out ways to make a beer out of it. We have sweetness from South American lactose balanced out by the piney Northwest lactose then finished it with some grass and oats. We added a touch of Galaxy and Motueka to smooth out the sweetness so it resembles beer. $20 per 4 pack, 1 case per person.

    Cookie Kooks is a complete mess of a beer and one of the worst OH stouts I’ve had in a while. Getting through a 4oz taster is arduous at best.

    That being said, Tribulations is great!

    That’s why I hate relying on Untappd to determine if I’d like something. Kookie krap or whatever it’s called has almost a perfect rating on there. I took a taste from a friend last night and actually felt bad for him for having to finish the bottle. Just a frankenstein mess of a beer.

    Agreed, cracked my bottle open yesterday. Sounds like a mess but all the flavors come together surprisingly well. Sweet as all hell, though.

    Like Whoa instagram announcement with the hashtags, @'s and emojis removed:

    Like Whoa. This is that special coming straight outta This has that glowing pour (into that proper glass ), that dank dank aromatic and that legendary combination of tropical juicy hop varieties, smooth smooth full body feels , and a dangerously well masked finish to round out the Big Big the from and for linking on this exceptional B2 of (honestly better than B1 IMO) For a fact (and will confirm) that pink can is hands down the best - tell your traders what’s up That last Like Whoa drop was one of OH’s most historic, and saw 700 cases vanish in 2 hours on an epic day that was actually captured in a documentary Without a doubt has been instrumental in bringing the NY beer community We can’t wait to get out there Saturday to celebrate their milestone 5th Anniversary

    Same! I just finished one and it was fantastic (noticeably better than the Hyperfocus Mosaic I enjoyed earlier at As Is). Fuck the collabs. Let's get more of that, All Citra, and Space Diamonds every month.

    I might get booed out the room for this but I thought Like Whoa was nothing special. *ducks and runs out

    It's hard to imagine that ~150 people are going to max out on five different repeat beers today so the others behind them on line should have a chance. I just wanted some Swedes in Heat and was hoping I could roll up tomorrow before the Superbowl to pick some up

    I doubt everyone in line is maxing out on all 5. But I don’t doubt a lot near the front are bc they are muling beer for people. I hope something makes it past the line and I can get some later. If now I’ll just get some pours/fills

    They’ve just opened. Once the line bunched up it was half way to Court. Line isn’t that crazy by historical standards but sounds like there’s not huge amounts of each.

    Swedes In Heat was the lowest yield. Everything else is about 190 cases. Folks joining the line now will still get beer but maybe not absolutely everything according to Cam.
