    Hop Asylum employee (previously, Imperiale's main boy here), we still have that Bottle Logic barleywine, along with some of the new Arrow Lodge stouts if anyone is interested in those. Also a stock pile of 3F. Everything is pretty much the same. We're getting more SARA stuff on draft, which has been awesome. The new owner has been open to letting me help out with the list more.
    To those that are not local, we sold the business, yet kept our name (Imperiale) for the brewery we're opening in downtown Brentwood. I'll be around at hop, until the new spot is open. Then probably do a day or two at hop, helping with buying, bartending, and checking in on things, and the rest of the week at the brewery.

    Trappist Provisions changing again, this time to Fort Point. Somehow that's even less interesting than when it became a Mikkeller bar.

    Fort Point is what every beer spot in the Bay Area defaults to when in trouble.

    Ugh. They tried again and I guess it wasn't working. I'm not going to beer bars as often as before and didn't make it after it went back to TP. Oh well.

    I think we're going to do a collab together before you guys open, according to my boss. he made it seem like Vito wanted to do a bunch of pre-opening collabs with various other local breweries. no idea how far along you guys are though so it could be a while I'm thinking.

    Anyone see odd13 cans (or draft) in the Bay Area yet? I feel like they’ve been promoting Bay Area distro for 3 months now and I haven’t seen or heard of any still.

    South Bay has gotten at least two drops of cans that I’ve noticed. Haven’t seen anything on draft yet

    How much of a shitshow is the RR Zwanze event usually? How far in advance do people line up?

    Yeah, new owner, but it’s far from going away. Just going to be a new name. I hear employees are even keeping their jobs.

    For any hop heads suffering from haze-fatigue, my buddy Nick - now a GABF winner (silver) - over at Bartlett Hall just a put on a fresh west coast IPA with Simcoe, Nelson, and Mosaic called "Neat-oh." Heading over now to have a couple...

    Actually, skip it. After walking a mile and half in the rain, my wife and I were greeted by a sign explaining that Bartlett Hall is closed for a private event.
