    It is second use rum and bourbon plus Sherry and port (stuff that held Dire Wolf prior to the January release). The barrels will slowly become neutral with time and we may add or replace various types over time so I left the description vague.

    I get the sherry - port. Definitely some darker fruit. Very nice.

    @Spider889 Slow clap for "All the Breakfast" I think it may be the best cream ale variant you made yet.

    Easily. The flavors just pop. I recall you saying that you might bottle this after having tasted it yourself. To not do that now would be the biggest disappointment known to man since my parents had me. Bravo to you on this delicious creation!

    Any chance of a sneak preview of the draft list? Should I get my hopes up for Bourbon Coffee Joy?

    Looking forward to Saturday regardless!

    That looks great! But is this maybe the list for 7/1? I was asking about the quarterly Wolf Pack party on 6/24. Though I imagine there will be a lot of crossover between the two events.

    Just want to echo the sentiments on All the breakfast. That brew is insane. Lots of stuff going on, almost like every sip is a different flavor.

    Was out of town all weekend--are any bottles from the release available in the taproom and/or going into distro?

    Yeah we still have a little Legacy and CTB.

    Lemon Meringue and Night Method we have lots of and will be going into distro as well.

    Taproom closed for private event....again :slight_frown:
     
  15. CannedWaggoneer

    CannedWaggoneer Initiate (99) May 1, 2017 Ohio

    That does suck. I've been burned by it before. Supposedly they got the commercial space adjacent and their expansion plans include using some of that area for a dedicated event space to end tap room closures.

    Yes this is the plan. Sadly we do not have dates or anything but long term the taproom closure will begin to go away. I hate it too

    Fwiw July is likely our busiest month of closures so far and next busiest will likely be December. Watch social for announcements if worried.

    Lots of worthy competition in Columbus, but WR is definitely my tops as well. Congrats!

    On a side note, any word on limits for the 7/29 release?

    Nothing finalized but likely relatively high like most releases. Like 6 or more each.

    Edit: never mind I found it. Coco joy.

    Anniversary Party looks stellar, as usual.

    BB Yub Nub
    BB Coffee Joy
    BB Pi
    BB Dave Doesn't Know
    Canis Mexicanus Double Espresso
    All the Breakfast (!!!)

    I've looked around--what is Dave Doesn't Know?

    Dave Doesn't Know has been a draft only beer so far (we've done maybe 3 kegs ever). It's former name was #DAVEDOESNTKNOW and it is Pi with coffee.

    Excited to see how this next batch of ATB turns out. To get even more breakfast-y I'm adding rice and a boatload of maple syrup, plus increasing the alcohol a bit.

    Yeah sorry it's not on the website yet for some reason but all the details are on Facebook. (sorry for those who hate/don't use FB, but it is typically the best source for all info and most up-to-date)

    Correct.

    I'll try to get this added to BA as well though it won't really be editable once posted. It'll at least have the times and bottles.

    You are awesome. Hoping to make it up. Cincy has a home game that day. If it's at night, I'll be there bright eyed and bushy tailed. Hopefully for the Early Bird.

    Can't wait for the anniversary release!

    @Spider889 have you ever made a NE IPA? I usually think of Wolf's Ridge for traditional German styles, BBA, and sours. Curious to hear if you have any thoughts or aversions... I'm not pushing for anything; I just like hearing brewer perspectives on the style (e.g. Jackie O's staying away from it all together).

    Breweries that do world class Doppelbocks and Rauchbier usually don't do NEIPAs.

    The Florida moon at the last party wasn't NE but it was awesome

    I am heavily considering it. Usually Saturdays are no good for me because I'm always training for something. This is the week after my marathon so the timing could not be better. Definitely going to pay close attention. Do you remember how much early bird was last time? I know it's tough to get but that's probably the only way I'd go. I can't do lines anymore. If I can convince my wife to drive, though, I could come down for just the taplist.

    I think they were $50 before? But it got you breakfast and a 12oz bottle, and the most important part, it got you in early so you had a place to sit down.

    But the way they are doing the early bird tickets is still being toyed with I think.
