    I hate to do the "My daughter is named Foam and her birthday is the bottling date of xcnsdghuoghoerg" thing, but...

    I love Pavement (the band). What sort of things would I need to trade for Pavement (the beer)?

    If I can get a growler tomorrow it's yours. They had a very limited selection today for fills...no hoppy beers.

    Do they brew it semi-regularly? If so, I might hold off for a little, as it's hot as balls (and I'm going out of town starting tomorrow). Definitely appreciate the offer though!

    If it makes you feel any better, I actually liked that beer the least of their beers I've had.

    Yes.

    They also have one called Built to Spill if that's also your jam. :)

    Awww yeah. Maybe if they have them available at the same time I'll try to snag both. But I don't mind worthless tries at finding something else...

    I can't promise you that I'll be at Foam next week, but I can keep you updated if I do end up there.

    Going to foam next week. What is the typical cost to get a 750 growler fill.

    It typically varies from $9 (lower ABV stuff) to $12 (Double IPAs). Plus $3 for new glass if you don't bring any with you.

    Just saw they only have three beers on draft. How often do they add more drafts or releases. Will be up there on Wednesday.

    They usually have at least 8, but the brewers fest wiped out their inventory

    Visited on Friday, about 10 minutes after open. They had 5 beers on draft when we got there. Built to Spill was also on to start but it kicked by the time we walked in. Everything was good, but nothing great. 3 hazy beers, 1 saison, and a foudre aged sour. Experimental Jet Set (DIPA) & Lupi Fresh (IPA). Should have gotten a meat/cheese plate. Looked good, and the price was hard to beat. The outdoor patio was an awesome space to hang in the shade before it got really hot out.
