    I agree. OH makes fantastic beer but imo boat beer blows superfun out of the water.

    Are the cans produced all sold out of the taproom, or do some get distributed? Anyone know if they have a canning line, or do they use a mobile company. I dig the 80's style artwork.

    so far all cans except for the first run of cans (superfun I believe) were all sold directly from the brewery and lasted at most into the second day. some of their bottles were distributed locally to NYC.

    They use a mobile canning company.

    I think the bigger news in that Instagram post is they installed a new air conditioner!!!

    Personally, don't love either glass - love the artwork on the cans with the color schemes, but not feeling the same designs on those glasses. Loved how the Green Diamonds branding transferred, but these don't play for me. Perhaps I just want the Hop Showers to be in full technicolor as well.

    The ac was glorious yesterday.Tried the Boogie Board Stuntz, Styrian, Equinox, and BA Brett Saison. Favorite of the night was the Styrian. The Equinox just came on so that may have impacted my decision. If anyone tries the Brett Saison, please post your thoughts. To me, something tasted off. Might just be overoaked and came across as a buttery Chardonnay.

    Cani'baal *first ever foudre batch* is pouring. I'm really excited about these results as I wasn't super into the original brew of this one. Look forward to more stuff fermenting on oak.

    Equinox fresh batch was even better than the first time around if I remember correctly. Watch out for a packaged version next week...

    They were cycling some Rum BA Kerstperiode last night, too. Love that one.

    All Green Everything just hit the Top 250. All aboard the hype train. Mules, costume changes, unreasonable trade expectations, lets go!

    grounds for a new thread? 63 pages of posts is so unmanageable if you want to try and find any previously posted info

    Maybe we can do monthly threads, it seems to work for other breweries.

    I would be on board with this. The New England forum does it (HF, Tree House, Trillium and NEBCO) and the threads are much easier to search through if needed.

  24. Crookdrain

    Crookdrain Initiate (0) Jan 13, 2010 New York

    cans sold out last week. Next weekend might be another can release, according to the schedule they seem to be on. You can get growlers of the same beers at the taproom though.

    Random question. I haven't been by OH for anything other than quick growler fills since the winter - do they always open up the brewery room now to handle large crowds, or is that still ad hoc?

    Usually just on Saturdays and large crowds.

    Nothing yet, unless a local BA has inside info from visiting them this weekend. I would think a release is possible this week or next. Seems like they are on a every other week schedule.

    I would love some more Hop Showers in Cans! Man, that was just a fantastic beer!

    Agreed. I've been totally satisfied with a 4-pack of all their other releases, but this was the first beer where I'd easily take a full allotment for myself.

    Sounds like @Hirshi mentioned earlier that it could be Equinox which would make sense with all the single hop beers being released in cans.
     
  33. Hirshi

    Hirshi Initiate (0) May 1, 2012 New York

    Correcto mundo. They are canning up a fresh batch of Green Diamonds as well. Should be on sale this weekend.

    As far as OH IPAs go...Equinox is good but not great. Same goes for Green Diamonds. I'll sit this one out...

    New batch is pouring in the tasting room this past weekend and I thought it was a lot more impressive this time around. I think it will only taste better out of the can.

    I agree, Equinox was good, not great, although I had after a AGE so that may have impacted my perception of it. Will respectfully disagree on GD, GD is better than good, maybe not quite great.

    Hopefully a bunch of other people sit out this next release :wink: !

    Yeah Green Diamonds was good, don't think its wait in line good. I'd be there in a heartbeat for the Mosaic or Nelson.

    GD was a little too malty for me. And this is splitting hairs of course as OH IPAs are all solid--Mosaic and Hop Showers are my 2 favorites though without question
