    I know this probably gets asked every single week, so let me get this out of the way early -- guesses from veterans on how early one needs to show up to grab DDH DMD and DDH FS? i found some estimates from last release or two, but i'd guess DDH DMD might encourage more people to come out, no?
    Thanks!

    hmm, not sure it will encourage more people than usual. Its the 3rd time its being released normally new beers bring out bigger crowds. I would say to 100% absolutely gurantee it be there by 9-930. Most likely you will not have to show up that early but to assure you get it that's a good time to shoot for.

    How's the parking situation? It says street parking but are they metered, free?

    Almost as repetitive as people posting their disdain for hazy, NE-style IPA's at nearly every opportunity.

    They're not metered. You just have to find a spot.

    I was at Other Half today grabbing growlers and pretty sure overheard an employee say OH is opening a production facility in addition to the current brewery expansion. I could be completely wrong and they might have been talking about another brewery, but does anyone know anything about this?

    I don't know if you listen to already but Andrew was on the Steal This Beer podcast talking about future plans and I believe he mentioned the production facility. I could be wrong (kinda groggy right now) but I think he said they needed more space to store barrels and whatnot.

    Just wanted to point out that Other Half does accept Amex credit cards. Should fix that in the original post.

    It's been a long time since I've posted here. It looks like the can sales on Saturdays has slowed down a bit? I noticed OH's FB & IG pages have been posting what cans are leftover the following day > Sundays. Is this the case? Or are they just making more these days. I'm asking because I am thinking of flying out for some more cans. Is there still a huge line....3+ hour wait on Saturdays? Or can I take a chance on Sunday for cans these days? Would like to bring back some Green Diamonds. Its been a while I had GD. Thanks in advance.

    We do currently have a separate warehouse to store all our barrels. That might become a new production facility. Nothing concrete just yet.

    Dream In Green is real nice. Big time juice and I love the ABV. Would buy a lot of this if it ends up in cans.
