    We just accepted an invitation to attend the 2nd annual Lupulin Carnival by 4 Hands Brewery! This will be our first trip to our great neighbors to the south and we are so excited!!

    Use this thread help Mike and I decide what to bring on down for you.

    See you March 2nd!

    I don't recall if that was a completely hop-centric fest last year (lupulin, after all...), but how about something that might be available from this list?

    Twisted Galaxy
    Norseman's Wrath
    Mornin' Delight
    Golden Nugget
    Kentucky Brunch

    Assassin and Golden Nugget will both make the journey. Possibly some Naughty Temple as we are getting ready to free her from the barrels and bottle as soon as our label is approved.

    Any hoppy creation we have ready when we head south will be sure to come along too. I hate to venture out too far without ZeeLander or pseudoSue.

    I'd say bringing the some of the core lineup like you mentioned with Sue, & GNug would be the best bet. Then some of your Hop Patrol series stuff such as Zee and Pompeii. I'm not sure how many different stuff you'd bring down, but it seems like 6-7 different types is what you see breweries bring to an event.

    I always like when a brewery at such an event showcases a little of each in their portfolio. That way you can satisfy us beer geeks, and still have the more core stuff to bring new craft drinkers in as well.

    Good chance I will be making it down for this. A great excuse to visit friends, and drink great beers.

    You guys should participate in Brrrvana at Monk's in Sioux Falls, SD (Feb. 9).

    It's a long ways, but they're good people there.

    Are you guys also coming for Schlafly's Repeal of Prohibition Festival in April? I ask because this year's state is Iowa, and a really want to try your stuff, but this particular event doesn't seem up my alley.

    We have not been invited but would come to support any thing they did. They have been so solid that it would be an honor if we did!

    Can't wait for this. Loved everything TG had at Great Taste and the tap takeover the night before.

    We have been streaming a small amount of hugely hopped beer to Madison since mid summer if you know where to look! Hope you enjoy it. If you don't, let me know!

    Is some actually being distributed for bottle sales? I've heard of tappings at various bars but haven't heard anything about bottles for sale at any liquor stores.

    Go to Dexter's, Alchemy or Brasserie V. All three of those places to seem to have one on tap more often than not. They had two varieties on tap at Brasserie a few weekends back.

    That's a bummer! We send them as much as we can! They where in our taproom brewery last week....they rock!

    We are sending more every week. Thanks for being patient.

    Let's get this thread back on track. 4 Hands officially announced Lupulin. Saturday March 2nd from 2-6pm. 15+ local breweries, out of state breweries (duh!), lots of carnival type stuff, and a tasting glass. Tickets are on sale at the brewery now for $35. I'll be buying mine very soon.

    I'm drinking a bottle of Home by 4 Hands now. They are a great STL brewery and am looking forward to their net festival. Looking forward to tasting and learning about TG!

    Just bought my tickets...I've been remotely watching (with envy) the growth of TG from here in STL. Can't wait for you to start bottling so that my Des Moines relatives can bring me goodies!
