    I dont expect anyone to have a crystal ball, but judging from past releases do you think if I were to get there around 6:30 tomorrow I would be okay / there would be a massive line?

    Being that it's a Thursday and AGE was just released I would think you're fine by 6:30. There will definitely be a line just not a crazy one is my guess.

    With that said you just never know. The fact that they sold out AGE last time in barely over an hour shows that there is high demand for these cans. Especially for the large amount of people that got shut out last time.

    I'll be there at 5 on the dot to grab cans and might stick around for beers.

    Particularly with the limits this time around, should last longer.

    Good point. 2 4-pack limit on AGE and 4 4-pack on HS, I'd be surprised if both didn't last until Friday.

    Been here since 9:45am and I'm ~30th. It's about 100 deep now

    Seriously - I think I am going to go this evening, as I'm meeting a beer geek mate from LI who is up for getting some cans.

    I will be there since I sat out the last release thinking it would be crazy, plus I've been waiting for the Hop Showers cans. Thinking about getting there around 4:45, hopefully there won't be a crazy stupid line.

    Not going to be able to make it out there so my offer of 2 Heady cans for 2 Hop Shower cans stands for anyone who can meet me in Long Beach or midtown. :slight_smile:

    I hope Mother Nature is unkind to those who line up for this. Super low limits and a Thursday. Chill out with the hype insanity people? Good talk see you out there.

    Maybe these "releases" need a new name, "release" unleashes the inner hysteria of beer geeks near and far. Maybe "release" should be "selling some cans".

    Thursday night, cans were sold two weeks ago, low limits, OH can saturation, I have to figure if they have as many cases as they have in the past this beer could last into the weekend. But underestimating the veracity of people near and far to get these cans is a dangerous prediction game to play.

    No, been sick all week, have to sit this one out. But with all the time each one of us have spent there, we were surely have bumped into each other without knowing it :slight_smile:! Sometime in the next couple of months lets have a couple of beers together.

    And how about "discharging" cans. Sounds kind of like some nasty medical procedure

    Wow, I stand corrected. Crazy. My next prediction is once that initial line clears out it should be clear sailing tonight.

    Completely serious, line is all the way to end of the street as of right now. I thought there'd definitely be people
    lined up, but nowhere near this number. My guess is your best bet is to show up around 6 once this initial line gets through and then there won't be anyone. With the lowered limits I imagine it'll last all night.

    Down the block and around the corner just like the last AGE release. No one works anymore it seems.

    I'm in the brewery section and looked outside and the line is still down the block.

    I just walked around the corner and the line is pretty much to the corner. Wasn't expecting this.

    I just got out and the line is only to the taproom now. Looked like 3/4 pallet of Hop Showers left and they just wheeled out a new pallet of AGE

    Surprised by the initial turnout considering it was a Thursday at 5, but the line did move pretty fast and I'm glad I've got a bunch of fresh OH cans for the holiday weekend. Also, good job OH bringing the limits down to one full case total. I didn't see anywhere near as many people loading up cars/trucks with 4+ cases of beer and hopefully it'll last till tomorrow and this batch will get spread out more.
