Potential midweek Cheddar Broccoli and Kolsch drops? Oooohhhhh looks like my Saturday just freed up.
What kind of beer was Bud’s Life (tm life) and what was in it?
Whenever I see this month’s thread title I think of Sepultura
Thanks! Thought it was non-IPA. Guess I was mistaken.
Really only excited for SGE again.
it's such a good beer for the summer. it's unfortunate that i made plans and can't get to the brewery for it.
OG SGE > DDH SGE
I am going to be at the Brooklyn Aquarium on Saturday with the family. Since it is my birthday on Sunday, I've been given the go-ahead for a diversion on the way home to go to Other Half. Generally speaking (I can tell from looking through the thread this depends on what's available on a given Saturday):
- When does the line normally die down and make visiting with kids manageable?
- Am I likely to end up with some cans well into the afternoon? If not, how late is typical (I know this is hard to answer)?
Looking at the line up for Saturday I’d say medium sized line. Should be clear to walk in and grab cans by late morning kind of time. Definitely some stuff will stick around all day.
Re: kids, what age? I have a kid (2) - OH not a great place to bring them, especially on a Saturday where there’s generally a solid crowd all day
i'd say between 11:30am-2pm may be a good time. Depending on if the cans are behind the bar or at the warehouse. My experience says that if you have kids - visiting on a Saturday may just be a "grab cans and go" experience, as opposed to sitting down and enjoying a few pours - given how fucking crammed packed it can get. past 2PM it'll only get more crowded.
Thanks guys. Yes, "family" is kids and not just adults. Thanks for the heads up on it being a little packed most Saturdays.
Yeah man. OH just not really a kid friendly place unfortunately (and I’ve always been a proponent of bringing kids to breweries both before and after having my own). The old space was an absolute no go. The new space is ok on off hours if you have a small baby who’s just going to sleep/chill. My wife and I took our son there when he was a few months old at opening on a Friday and was fine. But from when they can walk to when they can legally drink it’s not great. No food. Nothing for them to do. And usually rammed at weekends.
Yeah, I bring my kids all the time to breweries as long as there is something for them to do (including me bringing a game or stuff to entertain them), but knowing that crowded space on a Saturday can be an issue is really helpful thanks. Sounds like I may have to just leave my wife and kids in the car and run in and out for whatever cans there are when we get there.
Cans are sold at the corner so you won't need to run into the brewery
Depends on when they go to the brewery, they move can sales to the taproom in the afternoon.
i think there is mini-golf or something like that a few blocks away. Let them get a few holes in while you have a pint or 3.
Yeah, and/or (depending on the kids age) that redeveloped playground a couple blocks north, or Court Street Grocers or any of the good restaurants round there. It's your birthday @EDNOSE - you deserve to get away for 30 mins for a pint
Yeah thank you for this news! I can't believe I didn't know, so close to home and OH.
Damn I really should have bought more DDH Citra+Galaxy. This beer is insanely good. It’s like a blend of what I love about ACE and Space Diamonds.
Anyone hear of Harlem Hops? I haven't been yet but it sounds like a cool place. However, just saw on their Instagram that they are selling Broccoli Cheddar cans. Checked out their can list and they are also selling Grimm's debut cans. That's illegal, yeah? Should I reach out to Harlem Hops?
I could be wrong, but I’d say that’s illegal.
Don't all bars sell cans/bottles to drink on-site?
You shouldn't reach out to shit cuz cans are lasting and someone in the locale might need easy access to those cans!
Seems extremely unlikely (near 0%) to be illegal. Looks like a well-funded operation, cans are on-site only, and they tagged the brewery in the Instagram post.
I have seen OH cans for on site consumption in the past as well. This isn’t some shady bottle shop.
Haymaker gets brewery only cans sometimes too.
Legal? Who cares, in the beer industry, legal means violating a government granted monopoly of connected beer distributors wetting their beaks before you can wet yours. As craft beer drinkers you shouldn't care about macro beer and their rent seeking ways. This is why we have mules, cronies get greedy and levy an unjust cost on a product and we get a grey market, just like a black market follows prohibition. /Rant
I didn't know Harlem Hops was a bar, I was under the impression it was a bottle shop. Should have done my research but that changes things. Most likely legit.
Harlem Hops looks like a great place! Nice selection and some food...
Anyone know how quick the line has been going these days? I was going to roll into OH in the late morning but I found out I have to be back at my apartment by 11:30 which probably means being done by 10:30?
I don’t understand all the hype around City Slickers. Got a single can and drank it last night. It was a middle of the pack beer for me.
I agree. Bracing myself for some prickly pear, I thought it was interesting but not great. If I were to have tried it blind, I'd have spit it out all over myself.
Depends what time you get there but they open pretty early most days now. There are times I've gotten cans, had a couple in the tap room, and back on the road by 10:30.
Now if they drop crazy glassware or bottles or something, that could slow the line down. More decisions = slower line.
No post in over 24 hours?! WTF
How's the Cheddar Broccoli? Saw some comments on FB that implied it wasn't amazing
I grabbed a 4 pack Tuesday, drank one out of plastic cup in prospect park, it felt like an on par OH beer. But like someone said earlier I kinda felt I had to get some bc a Cheddar Broccoli teku is my main beer glass (and broccoli with cheese was my mom's go to trick to have me eat vegetables as a kid).
Cheddar Broccoli tastes pretty thin imo
When’d you get the cheddar broccoli teku? Any idea if they have them now with the can release?
They made them last September, I have one as well. I don't think they've ever made more of any of the tekus beyond the logo ones with the exception of DDH Broccoli when the new taproom opened.
