    Sand City is the only thing that brings me to the annoyingly difficult to get to Northport, NY. I've definitely spread my spending to other local businesses. I can't wait for Sand City to move. Peace out Northport - I won't be back.

    What’s it looking like up there? Was thinking about going after I get out of work at 2 but don’t want to waste my time if everything is gone.

    Check Instagram, but Even Mo Money is gone, 15 cases of Oops as of 12pm.

    I got out of work a little early. Think I can make it there before they’re gone??

    Surprised it sold out so quickly, but happy for them to generate some cash while tap room is closed. Hopefully everyone's fridges are full and they skip the next SC release:wink: !

    So yeah the town no like sand city. There were 3 police vehicles circling the brewery in the hour or so before the release. Handed out tickets to any car that was even parked crooked. My friends and I were also fairly sure that we spotted 2 plain clothes officers walking up and down the line presumably to bust people drinking. Thankfully the crowd was mellow and there was no blatant bottle sharing going on.

    Think the rumors are right about wanting to preserve the 50s vibe. And as far as us saying if sand city leaves we won't be back to the northport...that's exactly what the folks pushing them out would love to hear.

    Very surprised it sold out so quickly. Must've neen a mad rush of people at open since there weren't really long lines leading up to open.

    Now that I've had both collabs, my (very early) verdict is Even Mo Money > That Ish Cray. I'll tell you though, it's by a hair. These two breweries really know what they're doing.

    That Ish Cray is just about perfect right out the gate. Tons of citrus, tons of dank, really good feel for a single IPA. I will happily drink the other 5 I have and begrudgingly give the other 2 away I plan on giving away.

    I give the edge to Even Mo Money though because of one thing. I'm not going to get into descriptors, but if you've had both of these beers separately, this is the perfect blend. Smells like dank ass Money, which is saying something. Starts off like Money, but then melds beautifully into that mosaic beast we all know as Even Mo. Same as Ish, begrudgingly giving away what I'm giving away. Always happy to hook friends up, though.

    TL/DR: they're both amazing. Couldn't be happier the best two LI breweries collabed, and that I was able to get both.

    Bam for Saturday. Double batch, this is good news, although I don't think it will be as easy as strolling into Centre Street when OH has double batches.

    I fully expect this to be an unfortunate shit show which will put their strained relationship with the Village over the top. No OH release Saturday means the masses will flock.

    Definitely has the potential to be. But Sand City knows this, so either they don't care or the lines are not the source of their problems with town.

    Aside from a potential wait, with double batch and SC reducing limits as needed, pretty sure everyone who is in line will get beer.

    2nd anni release wasn't a complete shit show, right? I didn't go but expected it to be. The optimistic side of my hopes this release won't be, the realistic part knows it will be.

    I'll add one thing, since I can't edit my last post, if any of these line lyfe/haze boiz think they can come to Northport village and just bust out bombers, whalez and glassware on the sidewalk, they're gonna find out real quick they ain't in Brooklyn anymore.

    No firsthand knowledge as I never go to releases but from what I heard the town always had an issue with the releases due to the lines and public drinking on them. The final nail in the coffin was whatever release they pushed back because of some town event. Think they moved the can release until 2 pm and this event ended at 2 pm so obviously people lined up early and it caused a problem. Shortly thereafter is when they began having the serious issues (fire marshal, walkway, etc). Again this is just what I heard so no idea how much is true but it seems to line up with what's going on.

    That was the day of the Cow Harbor 10k which is a big deal around there. I wasn't there that day but your theory actually makes sense because that does seem to be around the time the ball breaking started, at least on the surface.

    Good grief. I’m looking at buying a house in that area. If they move Sand City to a remote location I may have to reconsider (semi srs).

    It's only a matter of time before they relocate. Aside from the problems that the town is giving them, they outgrew that spot a while ago.

    Is the other half collab the same beer as all infinity everything?

    Other half release was infinity plus one mixed with AGE

    According to SC instagram this release looks to be the same beer but at different at a different abv.

    I had them both tonight but I favored the OH collab. They're both great so don't get that twisted. Have fun, I'm sitting this release out. These are some decent motherfuckers, I'm glad they're killing it.

    Double batch of OH collab, they adjust limits based on people on line, I can't see why anyone would get there hours in advance. But based on the line "arms race", people will line-up very early. And they incented people to line-up early by saying glasses available for first 150 people on line.

    Has there ever been a time with Sand City release where people in line before open don't get beer? I don't think so.

    This is why we can't have good things. And my guess is people will pass all those hours by drinking in the street. SC was pretty explicit this time in IG post telling people not to drink. Tap room closed, problem with town, collab with super hyped brewery, holiday weekend, hundreds of people descending on Northport, what could go wrong??!!

    I went to The Villager for their event last night, and I asked them if they were trying to break the town.

    And, yes, the Cow Harbor theory has legs...I'll just leave it at that.

    Oh yea, I agree completely. Those that haven't been to Sand City before will realize very quickly that the village of Northport is not industrial Brooklyn.

    There hasn’t. As you say, they will adjust limits based on the line at opening. That’s why I’ll arrive just before opening. :slight_smile:
