    yeah, but like how many different hats, t-shirts, and glasses will they be releasing?

    this line up looks insane. hopefully OH's triangle and taters releases have properly prepared them for managing this shit show.

    4th must be the double/triple batch. Limits look good to me.

    How much of a shitshow is this release going to be? I'm assuming that there will be enough beer to go around that its not going to be like Taters but I'd like to be able to get out of there at a reasonable time.

    Can't wait to hear about how this batch of 2nd Anni isn't as good as the first.

    this forum has been pretty quiet lately. i think a lot of the hype has moved up the palisades to EQ and HVB. I only waited in line twice last year (for third anniversary and to pick up wedding beers.) Going to wait in line this weekend but probably after hockey and get there at 8:45am.

    the release will be a shitshow but i expect the beer to last. 3 4pack limit with 180-220 cases is 360-440 allotments. I think the fourth anni. is probably a double batch.

    Think there may be some secret drop of something on Wednesday given that's their anniversary date?

    Taters had 651 allotments and sold out by 12:15 according to their Instagram, for what it's worth.

    The IG announcement for this batch of 2nd Anny wasn't as good as the first IG announcement. Already bummed.

    Never say never but I'd guess its unlikely given that these are probably all big batches so they might not have tank space for anything else.

    Last week's Keg email had Green City on it and it was never released in cans, my money is on that mid week. Hopefully, 4th anniversary is 750 cases and 2nd and 3rd are 250+ cases!!

    Green City is the new replacement for Other Half IPA, it'll be on the the keg list every week.

    I'm more excited for 3rd Anni than 4th, top 5 beer for me from 2017.

    We have to assume each of the 3 cans is at least a double batch, and presumably 4th Anny is a triple batch right?

    Also betting on 1st Anny cans on Wednesday as a surprise.

    What's OH's current weekly canning capacity? It was at 800 cans I believe before expansion

    There are going to be idiots who wait overnight for this release, and from the early forecast it looks like they will be popsicles come sunrise. Low of 16 degrees Friday night ----> Saturday morning.

    the sad thing is, a giant chunk of those people waiting overnight - are not doing it for the beer, they're doing it so they can "brag" about waiting in line overnight, in the dead of winter, to all of the people in their facebook groups.

    Rumor is they're going to be selling 4th Anniversary branded sleeping bags, tents, blankets and space heaters. Who's the idiot now?
