    I just hope it's on in the taproom for awhile. Even if I can't make it to snag a bottle, I'd head down there just to have a beer or two.

    Clark - you guys continue to do an amazing job. Here's to hoping I can make it back for a release or 2!

    By the way, the Xhop series was terrific.

    Not that history always repeats itself but I don't believe they have kegged off any of their BA beers before.

    Doesn't this simply create multipule smaller shit-shows?

    Interesting, so they haven't had them on tap at the release parties? They have plenty of other good beer, so I wouldn't be too disappointed, but...

    KBBS was on tap for the release. They also had MD on tap and Assassin bottles for sale for on-site consumption! I had all 3. It was a good weekend!! :D

    I knew they had tapped MD which of course isn't BA. Didn't realize they had kegged any KBBS.

    I know they used to, but I think I have heard that they don't anymore.

    They're tapping a keg of Assassin at Hunahpu Day this year.

    I thought I read that they will be pouring samples of Assassin from bottles, but everything else would be kegged.

    Not sure if Iowa laws would allow it. But I can only hope some CCB shows up at AD.

    I'm sure I missed that. Assassin shows up on the Hunahpu Day master taplist so I assumed it was a keg. Sorry for the misunderstanding, especially if what you say is true.

    No keg of Assassin. There will be Mornin Delight there though and Mornin Delight on at the taproom in Decorah as well.

    Yes. I wish we had more teku's as I doubt they'll last until then.

    SR71 on tap as well. All this was spent by 8 AM!!!

    The SR71 was very good. I had it at the Assassin release. I passed on it at the KBBS release and had 2 MD instead.

    Well, we said why not have an extra fun day at the taproom.

    -Sosus bottles
    -King Sue
    -Mornin Delight

    There will still be a MD keg tapped at the taproom in Decorah on March 8 (as well as at Hunahpu's Day), this keg is just extra.

    What are the chances of Teku's lasting until Monday? No way for me to get there until then. :(

    Is anyone there right now? I'd love to see the teku and know how busy it is. I'm contemplating driving down tonight from Minneapolis

    I went to the tap room today and had a nice chat with Clark and Mike. I picked up a couple tekus and a pile of Sue and Sosus. To top off the day, Mornin' Delight was on tap and dammit if that isn't a world class brew. Incredible.

    Doubtful MD will still be on tap on Sunday but I'm beyond excited for King Sue! Any new TG beer is a must try, and the Assassin teku's are icing on the cake. Heard case limits were upped to 2 per person as well, just in time to spend all my money on Sosus :D

    I did not get to try KS. The keg wasn't there yet when I was and I couldn't stay long.

    Another 1/6 bbl of MD will be back at the taproom March 8th according to TG's twitter
