    Other Half has started distributing here to MN and landed last week with over 10 different beer varieties.

    Can someone do some OH to English translation for me? The dollar slice description today contains Vermont yeast. Does that mean more or less melon?

    I’m kinda surprised, but I really shouldn’t, that it’s going for $20 a 4-pack.

    I'm pretty sure the state of Vermont kicks you out if a brewery makes melon beer.

    Wasn't this melon thing originally in Green Power, which I think has VT yeast?

    so this is for training purposes? cause it doesn't seem like they're short on brewing capacity with the amount of beer piling up slowly at their BK location despite all the distribution/delivery that is happening

    don't let the simple truth get in the way of a good conspiracy theory!!

    I recently bought some citra and galaxy , stacks on stacks southern hemisphere and cream. one of them was brewed at young lion . they all were good!!

    I hope this info is helpful in furthering someone's agenda...

    per email not for training but to expand capacity until they open new facility.

    My hope is if they have beer "piling up "they lower their prices!!

    New beer alert!

    11 Pounders IPA (5.8%) Big things come in small mylar packages. This regular IPA version of Mylar Bags is still stuffed with enormous amounts of Citra, Mosaic, Galaxy, El Dorado and Amaillo. $16 per 4 pack.

    if they start distributing using a middleman that's essentially what they're doing. safe to assume they will sell to a distributor at a lower cost than retail. of course the customer will not necessarily see those savings when they buy from a store unless they compare it to the cost of buying from a mule and getting beer shipped or driving a long distance to pick it up from the brewery directly.

    Well, it’s come to this. I now just look for the finger lakes brews in Brooklyn. Quonset Hut is one of the better beers I’ve had from OH in a while. Maybe there is something to this conspiracy theory thing after all (pentagon logo, blue tab.... hmmmmm.....)

    This is a great question. I was just recently up in the Adirondacks and experienced my first taste of indoor - well - anything. Today Pizza Moto sent out an email saying they are waiting until they can have 50% capacity before reopening. I walked by Za-Ya Ramen and they appear to be moving ahead based on signage indicating 8 people max. I hardly realized tomorrow is "the day" until just now.

    I would imagine the issue OH has is their entire space is full of stock but I do wonder what they are planning.

    Also, they would need to serve food by law now so they would need to really up that supply of doritos.

    A friend of mine told me that double fantasy was really hot when the box arrived, so I saved my 1 can for last. I thought it was one of the best of the box. It had a lot of that good shit Simcoe pineapple.

    Man I'm a commuter that only started going to OH in 2018 when they started doing midweek drops. I'm not OG enough to know what B1 Green Power tasted like.

    Is there a way to know which beers on the Brooklyn list were brewed at FLX (other than asking in person)?

    Check the fingerlakes IG. They post them there when released, and they eventually make it down here.

    I can’t speak to the accuracy (and don’t remember seeing this on the handful of FLX beers I bought, but it’s been a while), but via the CT thread:

    I'm wrong. Plenty of FLX tabs hiding underneath the holders? Blue.

    This Columbo moment brought to you by my wife, who complained that there wasn't enough room for veggies in the beer fridge. (She thinks it's the "veggie fridge").

    OH FLX makes better beer than OH BK? Needing to go to the What's on the shelves in CT (???????) thread to solve the mystery of beer provenance? How long has it been since #OHhateslocals?

    Next year someone needs to take a can of Broccoli from FLX, DC, Williamsburg and Young Lion, combine them all together and compare them to a can of Broccoli from Gowanus. Unless the combo tastes exactly like the Gowanus can, we need mass protests at all locations.

    I can be your guinea pig, I do love me some broccoli!
    Yeah I remember Andrew saying on some Instagram Live (a handful of months ago now) that he doesn't think the tap room will be open for a long time, even if things started to get a bit better. I know he and others have said how they really had to completely rework everything to do what they are doing right now, and opening the tap room at a reduced capacity for what would likely be only the local-ish people like ourselves, with no guarantee, just doesn't make sense. Seems like they would want to run with this type of set up until they can have a larger crowd in the taproom while they figure out what to do with the delivery/pick up/shipping options

    Is it still a cuvée if it’s 4 versions of the same beer? Seems like a pretty badass, craftivore thing to do.

    Up on curbside:

    G is for Green Imperial IPA (8.5%) With Citra, Simcoe + Vic Secret. An OG never-canned-before IPA makes a comeback. A slightly updated recipe now with Vic Secret hops to play alongside our hand selected Citra and Simcoe. $18 per 4 pack

    whoa! bringing it back old school. I don't think I ever had this one before, but I do remember the inversely named Green is for G's which was a crazy high abv IPA that was super boozy. Pretty sure they only served it in those little 4oz tasters which was by far enough.

    So it's looking like there's no clear pattern. FLX folks, we're going to have to use a blue sharpie on the ones that are silver.

    Feel like I’ve had 20+ different OH IPAs since C+S (including all the green city’s and latest Citra exp/hop showers releases) and they have all been...meh? It’s not that any have been bad, they just all seem to blend together...oh and the melon :slight_frown:

    Probably more of a me thing at this point as I sort of felt the same about a recent batch of tree houses I had. Might be time to take a break to appreciate how good I have it around here.
