    So how much of a disaster is this going to be? Kinda tempted to head over during my lunch break.

    I'm also curious if Friday can be a typical in and out. I'd rather not deal with a shitshow on a Friday afternoon when I can just pop in tomorrow and grab some Space Daydream.

    hopefully they release the tap takeover list soon. I wouldn't be able to get there until later at night so cans are prob gone by then anyway.

    Yeah same. Totally forgot about veil thing and was hoping to drop by Friday (only chance this week) to do a ninja grab of some space. Especially important since my smoke show wife going on a bachelorette party so I’m solo parenting for two nights. Was aiming for a case instead of the usual 2 x 4s

    Has OH hosted a "mobile can release" before? I imagine that feature alone would have Friday dwarfing any other takeover they've done.

    They've done bottle releases for J Wakefield twice if I recall correctly and they have sold some of their EQ collabs that were at EQ.

    No I didn't start Brooklyn Kura. When I left OH, I was helping out at Sake Brooklyn.

    But now I am starting a brand new sake brewery in Bushwick which should be opened by Winter.

    I haven't been to Other Half in over a year. I'm considering going on my birthday in a few weeks. It's on a Sunday. They generally have multiple to-go can options at all times now, right?

    Going to be in NYC getting ink done next Thursday. Plan on stopping by Other Half after my appointment

    Are they able to package beer to go using dry ice by any chance? Would like to bring back some cans but I'll be taking the train so I'd like to keep them somewhat cold

    Sort of depends on how much you bench and how hot your wife/gf is. But @Tallerboy right - likely not happening

    I have shipped beer cross country, and it was fine... You could always grab ice at a corner store put it in zip locks along with the insulated tote and you'll be more than fine.

    How long is your train ride? There is a huge misconception that you have to keep your beer cold throughout delivery process. As long as the packaged beer does not go through an extreme temperature swing (i.e 40 degrees to 90 degrees) or stays warm for a prolongued period, a change in temperature for a short period of time will not impact the quality of the beer.

    Triple Space Diamonds definitely needs another week or two. Very peppery/grassy in its current state. Hoping these flavors mellow out.

    Buyer beware...if you don’t keep the beers between 36.5 and 39.5 F it will be a waste of money.

    I kid of course! No need to worry about ice...I leave out OH cans for 1-2 weeks in room temp after I purchase them until I’m ready to drink...then I refrigerate. Guarantee you wouldn’t be able to taste the difference if you kept them refrigerated the whole time. Facts...

    My brother in law (best dude ever) once brought me a mixed case from Trillium which was kept at room temperature for 24 hrs before it got to my fridge. Not a bad can in the bunch.

    Yeah, the temperature control beer nazis are a bit outa control. I've had a friend give me OH IPAs that were at room temp for weeks that were fine.

    As someone that has been to some of the most hyped noon releases, including BA Snowbirds, I can say it hasn't been bad at all. In fact, after 20 minutes or so, there was no line for BA Snowbirds and people were starting to get 2nd and 3rd allotments.

    The thing is, The Veil released these cans at their own brewery too, and I could be wrong but I assume they aren't pumping out as much beer as OH, so I can't imagine there's anything close to a usual OH batch amount.

    Tap Takeover list updated on Other Half's IG page. Looks like a really solid line up with a brand new stout dropping. Hollow Place: Coconut. Can't wait for the reviews, the Vanilla version is dropping in bottles in July. Highly recommend any debating on whether or not to go, to bite the bullet and go. Some really good beers gonna be pouring and if you can score bottles of Eternal Slumber, the headache will be worth it.
