    With two taprooms and bi-weekly can releases, it's probably time for Southern Grist to have a thread.

    Discuss can releases and their beers in general.

    I thought Appreciate You was fantastic and hope it comes back during warmer weather.

    Was in the Nations taproom last night. Agreed Appreciate You is great, dead on for an Arnold Palmer. The guava lactose IPA is stellar as well.

    Really enjoying Electric Ditty Bag. Think it's SGB's best DIPA since [Insert Juicy Pun].

    I agree, not that suntan lotion tasting coconut either. Really good, glad to have them in the fridge.

    Agree. Sipping on one right now.

    Love that SG is canning now, and the Nations taproom is awesome, and far more convenient for me!

    Any word on when they’ll have another bottle release? Been a couple months since the anniversary. Itching for a good line share

    Black Currant Boysenberry Hill is quite good and looks absolutely amazing in their stemmed anniversary glasses.

    They just keep getting better. The Push 88 that came out a couple weeks ago rocked my world.

    I would guess it would be maybe a coffee variant or maybe some kinda fruit ??

    Stopped by last Friday night, I must say their beers are fantastic! I didn’t think I’d like the chocolate or sour IPA but I was really pleased.

    Was a good release on Saturday morning. In line at ~10am and had my bottles by 11:15am. Smooth as eggs...

    The beer was very good and loved the coffee variant in the taproom. Only minor complaint was the random system for giving the tickets out for cellar beers. I'm glad they saved me the money I would've spent had I been selected, but on the flip side, kind of confused re: why they wouldn't just give tickets out in order of arrival. Essentially not rewarding on a first-come, first-serve basis. Perhaps, though, this is considered an effective means for weeding out mules.

    Yeah it said on the post that it would be a random number generator done at 1030. Ive seen this done a few times , i know they do this at side project as well for certain releases . Its a way of avoiding everyone showing up at 8 am or earlier in line .

    Any thoughts on Freezies & Hoverboards? The description made it sound like one of the Bruery's new Bruesicle beers, which are epic but impossible to obtain except at the brewery itself. I was cautiously optimistic going in and I think Southern Grist hit it out of the park with this. I hope they keep playing with this beer and different fruit/flavor profiles.

    I unfortunately didn't make it to the bottle release a couple weeks back, but had the Moves Like Jaggery on Friday night and it is a coconut bomb. Loved it.
