Splitting a dessert beer with my partner.
Well I’m assuming it was Untitled Art/Octopi. It says brewed in Waunakee, WI on the can (which is where Untitled Art is located). From what I understand, Octopi is a production facility that brews other brewery’s beers. Untitled Art are the same people that run Octopi as far as I know.
And yes, I agree. Untitled Art’s smoothies are really good. Pretty much everything they make is solid imho.
This is a pretty aggressive brew, but pretty tasty and very attractive.
903 Brewers -- Chupacabra Batch 3 (flavored American imperial stout)
4.69/5 rDev +10.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Ink black body; thin, wispy khaki head primarily forming a collar around the inside of the glass. Intense roasted and earthy grain aroma; wood char; peanut butter; vanilla. The taste amplifies the smell plus adds a bit a whiskey booziness to the mix; char bitterness; dark spice presence like cinnamon. Heavy body; sludgy; slow-burn alcohol warmth intensity; dark sweetness with an earthy dryness.
Man, compared to the original Chupacabra, this one has turned the taste up to '11'. And I loved the first batch! Rich and incredibly complex and deep in character. Woulda, coulda, shoulda grabbed a few more...
Poured at 60° F; no dating information noted on the can.
Interesting. That’s a lot of information to take in that I was completely out of the loop on.
Yes you will! Good luck on the job search, and Cheers!
Great lakes mexican lager
Founder's 4 Giants! Delicious IIPA!
I have no idea, wondered if maybe they thought its "Montana cachet" was worth that kind of markup.
Drinking Some Gaffel Kolsch
Congratulations to the entire family
You have been very generous to me, so do not hesitate to ask for a box if you see a beer here you’d like. We’re in this together and we’re pulling for you. Keep your stick on the ice.

If you’ve ever had Humble Forager (not sure if they distro to Michigan), they’re an example of what I was talking about. It’s a side project of Forager Brewing out of Minnesota, but Octopi/Untitled Art brews all of the Humble Forager beers. The beers are smoothie sours, hazy IPA’s, and pastry stouts and they’re all very good.
Godspeed on your job search and we will share a cheers to congratulate your return!
Some like their lager, but it’s my lowest rated beer (tasteless beyond salt). The Pilsner is decent to good however, if you come across it.
These are two incredible WCIPAs!!
Getting ready to watch a rare televised White Sox game on free TV. And they wonder why baseball fandom continues to dwindle.

Great XRT Saturday Morning Flashback today to 1980. Will start Saturday Night with two rockers:
I worked with an industrial mechanic (Tom) who’s father was a railroad engineer, and loved “flying through that tunnel” he would ramp it up a bit to get back home.
The Hoosac. Is also an civil engineering marvel.
I am now drinking a fresh Heady that I bought at the brewery 3 weeks ago yesterday. Thankfully a little rain has started, the heat index felt like about 105.....
The perfect combo: Levante Hydrodrip Dry Hopped Pilsner, Beer Nuts, and The Little Steven Sessions on SiriusXM Underground Garage!
I’m still trying to get over the snow job in Foxboro from ‘02
Needed a big ass burger, easily taken care of with a walk around the block.
Alice Blue is a great local spot I walk to all the time, ignore the Old Fashioned in the corner, or not
Next beer is Weihenstephaner Hefe. Yep, awesome. With MORE Joni with Court and Spark.
Was that the tuck rule shenanigans?
Went to a Hop Valley Brewpub probably about 5 years ago somewhere in WA and enjoyed myself, now I can get it here.
The rest of my Saugatuck Blueberry Maple Stout tonight, and celebrating Misty's birthday!
Hungry. Yes, I zoomed in in the burger. Now hungrier.
Grilling some pork tenderloin.
From XRT’s Saturday morning flashback, 1980. Blues Brothers was the first R rated movie I ever saw. My dad, who was never a movie theater guy, took the whole family to see it because it was made in Chicago.
I just wonder how that works as far as profit splits and marketing costs. Like could I come up with a cool brewery name and beer and pay them to brew it and distribute it for me? That’s the confusing part.

Great beer! That’s a big boy! Nice and boozy.
Not sure about the money end of it, but I do know that breweries that want to have a production facility such as Octopi or Twelve Percent Beer Project brew their beer send a brewer there initially to oversee the production of the beer and obviously provide the recipe to the brewers and all of that. I also believe the brewery provides the ingredients for the beer or at the very least pays for all of that. The purpose of this is to get your beer out to a wider distro footprint typically.
Moving on...Stone's Liquid Poem! Best thing out of Escondido in awhile (Enjoy By not withstanding)! Image posting isn't working 4 me...
Prime ribeye tempered and seasoned. Time for a beer before hitting the grill. The Jack’s Abby canned relatively recently - May 10th - and tasting damn good on a humid night. Cheers.
I'm gonna do my best to not toss a bunch of F'bombs, BS flags, and F'ing stupid quotes here. But......I just bought Heady at the brewery for $12.70 (20 cents for can deposit), Sip of Sunshine at Beverage warehouse for $14.99, Second Fiddle for the same, 4 packs of Frost for $15.99. Ten four packs at $34.99 is $60 more than my round trip ticket on Southwest from Orlando to Manchester NH. If the brewers costs are so high (not believable) that they have to charge $34.99 to turn a profit they need to repurpose their recipes. Jus sayin....Equilibrium is $22 at the brewery and that barely works for me.....Caveat emptor. Oh boy, could I tell you what $35 could get you in South Korea in the 80's.....ok, carry on, I'm back to my $3.13 Heady Topper.....

At Ozark Brewing, double fishing. The Mrs. is sticking with water. I have the Driftwood IPA and Beer de Jour. A hoppy PA
More wheat beer, cheers!
