    I'd do one pack of each. I bet, with how Ramos should be received, that we'll see it again or maybe with a twist once the weather gets warmer.

    It's super unclear... There's a word missing. A different version of processing the Citra hop?

    I know it's not the case, but it would be some epic level trolling if the experimental version turned out to be ACE with lactose added.

    Insta says 250+ people with 500 total allotments, I don't think I'm going to make it because I really would have to be able to go in and out.

    Its one of the newer replys on the most recent post. Instagram on mobile is really annoying since it doesn't order by recency so I usually jump on desktop to check to see if people have a line updates.

    Nice. I just got here. Looks about 30 people or so. In my mind I’m saying this isn’t a line and that I don’t line up for beer

    Andrew came by saying that the “hazelnut” (presumably v2) stout dropping to 2pp because they made slightly less, but everything else fine. So presumably people that roll round later should be good

    I think Andrew was saying the new form of Citra is a liquid form, like a hop shot but cleaner.

    Right out of the gate, this might be the smoothest All Citra I've ever had.

    The commute in and out was a pain in the ass, but so far the juice has been worth the squeeze.

    Foam collab is good, but I've lost my taste for Nelson over the years so it's a little more dank/pungent than what I was hoping for. Nevertheless, I'm enjoying it well enough.

    Experimental All Citra is great. As @RobNewton stated, it's exceptionally smooth right out of the gate. Curious to see how this develops over the next few weeks.

    Banana Croissant porter is decent. Heavy on the banana and vanilla, but the almond is virtually nonexistent on the flavor. It's good enough, but I kind of regret getting two 4-packs of this. Will save a few more cans for myself, but I'll be giving away some cans to friends and coworkers.

    As for the actual event, I feel like I'm getting cold feet on it. I put out some feelers to see if anyone would purchase my ticket without the bottles/cans and I have a few people interested, but not committed. The idea of devoting a day to getting (what would most likely be) sloppy drunk before dinnertime isn't all that appealing to me, especially when you factor in that I have to be at work on Sunday morning. I'm still on the fence, but if someone bites I'll probably just give my ticket up in order to have a normal Saturday.

    Ig story last night said they have 20 cases each of lala, mouthful, and the pretzel stout. Plenty of ACE and the porter. Everything else sold out.

    I’m actually developing a very slight soft spot for some of these pastry stouts. But the idea of getting fucked up on them all afternoon - makes me shudder. Like imagine being 15-20 deep......

    People with solid self control are one thing, but I know I’d overdo it and the thought of what that high abv / high sugar hangover would feel like gives me an adrenaline spike.

    However I’m still excited to read about it, and to suffer vicariously through others.

    @RobNewton has the drone been tested and confirmed to be in good working order?

    Was the taproom relevantly empty during Green City? Planning on going Saturday and hoping it'll be barren with all the diehards at Pastry Town, but I doubt it'll matter in reality.

    Planning on pissing off my other half (see what I did there?) and grabbing some of that porter and ACE if there’s any left around 1:30 today if anyone wants to do an impromptu pre meetup meetup on a Friday afternoon.
