    BA Battle Axe wasn't on tap. Super Juicy was more than a great substitute though.

    I'll be in line at Voodoo as well earlier than I'd prefer.

    You have to wait in line for cupcakes coming from your own home? Your wife is a harsh task master.

    True, true. I'm sure they're amazing, but I can't even be bothered to drive to the south hills from the north hills... Let alone to Meadville. I'm not Magellan.

    Never said it sucked. Look at the reviews on ba. Most under 4, and all say it's thin with little barrel characteristics.

    I thought the opposite on the barrel. To me it was super barrel heavy. Tons of Wild Turkey.

    Stopped by on Wednesday to try it and grab a bottle of bourbon maple syrup and honey which I had been meaning to pick up for a while now. Figure spending that money mid-week will keep the Saturday tab just a little bit lower.

    Thought Jive was a very nice beer. Plenty of bourbon without being overpowering. Plenty of malt support. Never abrasive from alcohol heat. Body was on the lighter side to me, but not quite thin. Never came across as watered down bourbon which is what I usually associate with barrel aged beers that are too thin in body.

    I never had it during the last release though so not too much to compare.

    Never understood why, instead of just eating the warm soup, she didn't mix the too hot and too cold soups, so she could like, have a bunch of warm soup.

    Planning on checking out our BRC IV Release Party tomorrow? Here's what were tapping and in what quantity tomorrow when we open at 11AM. It is impossible for us to say how long things will last, so please don't ask. Good rule of thumb- if it's smaller than a 50L, it won't last long. Last release 50s lasted most of the day, if not the whole day.

    Gran Met aged in Apple Brandy Barrels- 50L
    Chocolate Covered Cherry Big Black Voodoo Daddy aged in Bourbon Barrels- 50L
    Quadfather aged in Cabernet Sauvignon Barrels- 1/6bbl
    Black Magick aged in Rye Whiskey Barrels- 1/6bbl

    Gran Met aged in Apple Brandy Barrels and aged on Madagascar Vanilla Beans and Cinnamon (cask)- 5gal

    Off topic slightly but I have a seven 12 bottle shippers I need to get rid of. If anyone is interested I could bring them to the Voodoo Homestead release tomorrow as I will be there at opening. BM me if interested. They are free.

    Really wish the Pittsburgh location would replicate Cleveland's version of the beer menu online. Date (which PGH used to do) and growler prices shown

    Haven't sat down at that location in a bit, does Cleveland still have the multiple page and color beer menu? Shit's gotta be expensive to print. Too busy for me; prefer the simple Pittsburgh version, but agree that growler pricing would be a nice addition.
