    It's hard to judge because the crowd was light, but I think the new room is going to be a massive improvement. I was dreading a really slow line because of the # of beers on offer today and it moved pretty briskly. Kudos OH team!

    Drinking the Hazelnut one now. Pretty impressed. Definitely one of their best stouts. The bourbon is pretty prevalent but I like that.

    I think New York is the only place I ever hear "on line" instead of "in line." I would love to know how this started. When I first moved to NYC I was convinced it was a confusion born out of the internet era and going online, but it is possible New Yorkers have been saying it for much longer than the past 20 years.

    Being "on line" definitely predates going "online".

    I'd like to say that most long time NYers think waiting in line (never waiting on line) is only for tourists and newcomers. It probably started with magnolia bakery in the sex and the city days. So waiting in line for beer I guess is the new equivalent, we'll see how much longer that lasts.

    I was pretty hyped about Like Woah, but my feeling is that OH's best beers aren't collabs (see: anniversary beers, ACE, DMD). I'm sure I'll grab cans if they last past the line, or a pour in the taproom, but not going nuts if I miss these.

    Factor in also that with all of the IPAs they pump out, it's absurd to suggest there's a great difference in taste, feel, etc. from what they regularly pump out.

    I am happy that because of it's regular release schedule, DDH DMD appears to be passe to the nutcases that line up, by tekus and otherwise overwhelm OH and thus is easy to pick up hours or even days after release.

    So because some
    Can you count or just mezmorised a cat sitting next to a stack of beer ? When ever have you seen that account show more beer than what is personally allocated? Fact of the matter is when you get in line for hours after hours and week after week and spend the money on beer trades, they do not need to be called out on some BA forum by someone who cannot wake up and get in a line or open his wallet.
