    Totally saw that after I posted and am crossing my fingers it hangs around until Monday.

    It's not bad for a beer that's almost a decade old.


    Wife asked the guy in warren tap room what kind of beers the 9 and Heathen were and he hadn't the slightest clue. I had to tell her for him.

    Sad to see how slow it is in here. Granted I know the main party is at CT it's still weird.

    The DRIPA tastes awful. Almost medicinal. Jesus Christ. Did this beer ever have Belgian yeast? Regardless, if it did they dialed it up a lot on this batch.

    What they did to that beer is a god damned shame. When it was good, I'd take fresh DRIPA over any of these turbid IPAs that the kids love these days.

    Omg


    So I decided to buy bottles. They aren't even selling 2016 bbbw or 4D they're from 2014/2015 respectively.

    Everytime I think I've seen it all they continue to shock me.

    I guess looking at the eventbrite they didn't really specify but I'm pretty sure people were expecting new batches

    It seems reasonable to assume they're new batches unless otherwise stated.

    Weren't those 14/15 batches less than stellar to begin with?

    Probably just using old labels. A hallmark of a good brewery.

    No I asked the guy he said it's for sure vintage bottles. (At this point I'm not sure how reliable of a source that is)

    Additionally, the 4D is labeled as 2015 and we just cracked one and it's definitely not 4D. Whatever it is it isn't 4D.

    We even asked the bartender to taste it and he thought it was Sherry barrel 9 haha

    Does it still take over an hour to tab out even on a slow day? Another hallmark of a good brewery.

    Taplist at Warren was insane last night. Cool to try all of the drafts with none of the crowd.

    Kuhnhenn motto:

    Just when you thought we couldn't possibly fuck shit up worse than we already have. Oh, and DRIPA hasn't changed.

    You know Kuhnhenn is trying to hide something when they delete your post addressing legitimate concerns and then block you from their page.

    Seriously?

    Wouldn't mislabeling beer be a potential violation of some liquor law?

    It could if it was being sold at retail outlets perhaps. Laws for labeling beer sold through breweries and brewpubs is much more relaxed

    I'm gonna be passing through Warren next week. There seems to be some ire for these guys lately. Is it worth a stop with a car full of kids?
