    The church, man. The church. I parked there last night, was in and out in less than five minutes.

    You shouldn't need anyone to tell you that Guy Fieri is extremely offensive in nearly all social situations.

    That's a good over/under. I'll take over...but just slightly.

    I saw that too. He then commented how upset he was that he missed a full allotment and no one even offered him an apology. Haha entitled much?

    geez.. sorrry you missed one bottle.. here are 11 others.. happy now you know? people are crazy sometimes. They could have made the partial allotments truly half if they wanted to i'm sure they would have sold that out too

    Unless that dude left Buffalo at 4PM yesterday, drove reeeeeeeeeeeeeeealy slowly and avoided all social media on his trip down here, it should not have been a surprise that the fulls were gone.

    I have an idea for a new Roundabout beer (yes they still exist)...Gui Fieri, their Gui barrel aged with local peppers. Also the barrel has flames painted on it.

    Hold on. Idea. Single barrel batches. ISO: voodoo black Magick in "you don't mess with the Devils" barrels

    Or the "Ovaltine" barrels weren't as gold as the "Round-tine" barrels.

    Can the beer be called "Risk Management"?

    Guy Fieri is the pinnacle of awesomeness. Did you not see the ep of Triple D where he visited Kid Rock's "Microbrewery"? Heard they make a killer light american lager. Super micro and Super clarity bruh.

    The cupcake list is ready. I will post it at some point....they are top notch this time around, though I am a little biased. I think though instead of giving away the cupcakes I am going to set up a little table and trade them for beers......

    ISO: Don Q? NE Hops? Something on that level?

    I might as well, he never wants to meet up with me to get his bottles, thinks that means I should use them

    Guy Fieri and Kid Rock are both things to which I'm highly allergic. Add county music or Paula Deen and someone better have an EpiPen handy. If they made a beer is probably tasted like Bald Eagle tears.

    To be honest I was there and Meadville had no more than a few people in line at a time. You got your number, sat down, had a beer, and they called your number to sign up. But I think maybe 50-60 sold in Meadville? Pure guess. Definitely crazier in Homestead.

    30 more pages in this thread since I last opened it. I anticipated seeing the last 5 pages be about the voodoo release but instead its Guy Fieri and @tommyguz pimping dem delicious cupcakes. I see he also learned to multi-quote posts. Amazing.


    This will be the first barrel room collection release partay that I will miss out on and im pretty tore up about it. Cant really pick which im more upset about missing out on: the folks I look forward to seeing at these releases, the drafts that will be pouring, the beer cupcakes or that damn breakfast pizza that was MIA last release.

    Italian Village Pizza usually has a good craft selection in a pinch and seem to always have the latest DFH releases. Maybe that has something to do with it? Wish I could have made it down there to meet him.

    Really? The only locations I know of are in Brentwood, Baldwin, and Century III Mall, and all are pretty dirty grungy places with no alcohol whatsoever. That's why I was surprised, but I guess there are nicer locations in Pittsburgh.

    That said, I probably enjoy their pizza more than any other chain in this city.

    Not much love for Apples and Pears but I enjoyed it. Hazy as hell and in the right snifter it actually passes as a pear

    Yeah, Mineo's is awesome, but I don't lump it into the chain category like I do with Italian Village, which seem to be on every block.

    Was at Italian Village earlier. It was awesome. Very cheap pints, ordered 3 rounds of Romantic Chemsitry and Beer to Drink Music To and it was $6.56 each time.

    And yes, they are the 2nd best Dogfish account in the city, which is why all the hubbub. Again proof that us beer goofs don't know anything.

    But their pizza is no better or worse than any other pizza place in the city, Mineo's included. All pretty shitty.

    Wow. Only 30 minutes to go and 3 left....do the final 3 last until tomorrow!?!?!?!! Dun Dun Dun.

    Not bad though how many total allotments sold out in 10 hours (Meadville) / 12 hours (Homestead)

    Yup. Loyalty pays. Little "tertiary" places like this don't get Alpine, Alesmith, or Jack's Abby so much when they roll into town, but then their years of consistently buying Dogfish Head come under consideration when promotional events like this come around. Good for them! Having Sam show up at a strip mall pizza joint is a sign of craft beer's viability & longevity, if you ask me.
