It’s your funeral! Just trying to give you a pro tip to help your success in the biz!
Yeah you’re a regular Jean Van Roy I’m sure! Don’t take his ridiculous advice at your own peril!
In case the above didn’t make sense:
Keep doing what you’re doing Root & Branch! You’ll have all the success you can handle if you do.
Didn't The Rolling Stones name their band after a Muddy Waters track?
I don’t know about that but I do know The Beatles are another example that prove puns lead to commercial success.
Puns lead to brewers spending more time thinking of clever names for their beers than time figuring out how to make really good beers (Bolero Snort).
Anyone know approximately when in the day they have been selling out?
Our last release was on a Thursday: we started selling at 4pm and we’re sold out by 7:30ish.
Not sure if this has been addressed in previously releases... but what’s with the tax on top of the 20.00 4/pk?! Only other brewery I can think of that does it is Sterling Equities Brewing @ citi field.
Twelve Percent sets the pricing on the beer, not us. Until our facility opens, it’s out of our control.
12% always trying to nickel and dime the little guy. Poor form, not cool.
Manning the register, updating the story on IG and answering questions on BA (as well as brewing the beer), this man is busy.
When do you see your facility opening? Also where?
Our lease is signed. We estimate this time (or fall) of next year. Official announcement regarding the location is forthcoming.
@xenjoiii - ELATOSOH is amazing - one of the best new beers I have had in recent memory! Excited for your future plans.
Thanks! I’m glad you’re into it! I’m quite happy with the base compositions for Heaven & Hell.
Is this getting NYC distribution (cans/draft)?
Plenty of draft / 15 cases of cans. Getting picked up Tuesday. Hopefully they hit accounts in a cold & timely manner.
I'm burning through these cans way too fast. Strong contender for best IPA I've had so far this year.
Is ELATOSOH Everyone Levitates Above Their Own Sea of Hell or is it Everyone Levitates Above Their Own Sea of Heaven? Personally I’m excited to try Everyone Levitates Above Their Own Sea of Hell. I had Everyone Levitates Above Their Own Sea of Heaven and really liked it. I’ve been hearing good things about Everyone Levitates Above Their Own Sea of Hell! Really hope my bottleshop gets a couple cans of Everyone Levitates Above Their Own Sea of Hell!
Oops. Meant the Hell version released last Saturday.
You get my vote for the most mouth jumbling post of the year.
Everyone Stands Beneath Their Own Dome of Heaven.
Everyone Levitates Above Their Own Sea of Hell.
Heaven 4.5, hell 4.6. Will probably need to revise these figures when I die.
Going for this. Sounds great.
Looks like b2 of Dead Men on Holiday is in the works.
Please let this be a GSB release.
Brewing as we speak. It will be a GSB release.
Release wise, it’s looking like:
One-Dimensional Man - the week of 9/17
Dead Men on Holiday - the week of 9/24 or 10/1
Awesome & keep 'em coming. I'll bring copies of Marcuse and Koestler for you to sign.
When I was working at Threes, I named their Russian Imperial Stout “Everything Was Forever, Until It Was No More,” which I read in grad school. Alexei Yurchak found out about the beer and came by for a pint, while he was in town for a conference at NYU. He left us a few signed copies of the book. It was amazing.
Damn, one dimensional man is another banger. Anthony can do no wrong!
Hoping some of those cans see distro. Everyone Levitates was great as well!
They said on the instagram post for 1DM that cans are no longer being sent out for distro.
Correct. We will no longer be distributing cans - only draft moving forward. Demand is too high on Long Island, currently. Everything has been moving on release days. Prior to ODM, we were holding 15-20 cases back for distribution, but could have easily sold them all during the releases. For ODM, we sold everything, and some folks still missed out. Holding back cans had created a two-fold problem for us: 1) we had to shut down local customers that were taking the time to attend releases; and 2) it put Twelve Percent in a hard spot, as far as spreading the wealth went (ie, why did x account get cans and not me).
Wow, much respect here to @xenjoiii and his crew. This could not have been an easy decision but to show this kind of respect for your product and your customers is...refreshing. Cheers to you!
There is no crew. It’s just me handling production at GSB. If I have a beer fermenting, I’m there 5-7 days a week.
It was a difficult decision. The beer is totally drinkable. To be honest, it could have passed as a formidable interpretation of a West coast-style IPA (albeit a tad sweeter), but that was not it’s intented form. Passing off flawed product as something else is something that sincerely infuriates me, as a brewer.
Thanks for the transparency. Just had a can of ODM at Haymaker and it was fantastic.
Planning on doing the same after work. Very excited.
A Descartes beer but no Spinoza beer, outrageous!
