    But they brewed the beer 1-2 weeks ago =) Not saying I see that trend at all though.

    Couldn’t wait any longer and finally cracked my first triple space diamonds. I think it’s great. Super pungent aroma right off the bat. A tad too sweet at first but after 10 minutes warmed up, sweetness dies off and just tastes like a more intense space diamonds. Happy to nurse this one for a while.

    Went (twice) this weekend for the first time since Summer '16. New taproom is awesome. I tried a bunch of different stuff on tap on Friday in 4oz pours because of the Veil event. Triple Mylar Daydream is an elite TIPA.

    Pretty crazy (1) how small the brewery appears, and (2) the amount of stuff they are putting out on a regular basis. I know someone has said on here that they brew 24/7, but it's still remarkable to me. Between the draft list and can/bottle options, it is a ticker's paradise.

    As icing on the cake, I was able to get a parking spot right out front on Friday night and Sunday at open.

    What day do they release on a holiday weekend,? I assume it won’t be on a Saturday.

    It's larger than you think. I believe it's been mentioned before that they occupy a lot of property on that block and they brew 24/7.

    You guys don't enjoy sitting in your backyards in 85+ heat drinking a thick 10.5% milkshake IPA or a 15% pastry stout brewed with maple and peanut butter, buncha cowards here

    Got back from a long run in the 80+ degree heat yesterday. Overdid it big time. Too fast, too far and zero hydration:

    Me[crawling into apartment]: aarggnnn (pointing at snifter)
    Wife: what's the matter? you look awful. you want water?
    Me: (pointing at fridge) AARRRGGNNNN
    Wife: cold water?
    Me: (summoning final ounce of strength) I SAID GET ME THE FUCKING GAME IS THICCC. THE PEANUT BUTTER ONE

    I was about to make a post about cracking open a nice big pastry stout after mowing my lawn in 80 degree weather, but @rozzom seems to have all bases covered.

    Was hoping for Broccoli, Mylar, or Experimental/All Citra for this weekend. I'm quite pleased with the Broccoli and will try 'Roos.

    Anyone know when traffic gets really bad leaving Brooklyn on holiday weekends like this one? I’ve hit some leaving before and wondering if it’s even worth running in and out on Friday.
     
  36. BoardwalkBock

    BoardwalkBock Zealot (539) Aug 18, 2012 New York

    If the release is 12 on Friday I would not worry about traffic. It it’s any later than 3pm, you won’t be so lucky.

    I remember the pre-Thanksgiving DMD drop a few years back at 3pm and the shitshow of a commute to get back home after. Took me almost 3 hrs. I live 22 miles away.

    I think the rule of thumb is to assume that it could be horrific. Sort of depends on your route in and out. If the morning is doable maybe that wouldn’t be too bad. But I’ve done afternoon departures (like a rookie) and been in horrendous traffic.

    Left Williamsburg (friend lived there) at 2pm on a Friday once. Took almost three hours to get to other side of holland tunnel

    A friend of mine is thinking the same from Monmouth County and cutting through SI.

    Told him, my opinion it all really will depend. I leave north jersey to head down everyday and Fridays on a holiday weekend for me working turn a 90 minute commute to nearly double at times

    Hopefully no one hates the (dumb rookie) type question but is it safe to assume most of the better cans are typically gone by Sunday?
    Will be visiting this weekend but sadly can only get to OH on Sunday afternoon. Shouts to OH for the day earlier release so it's probably more picked over than a usual weekend? haha.
