    How many people is that? Never been to Seattle so I'm unfamiliar with Holy Mountain and their neighbors, but I always enjoy reading about beer release shenanigans.

    That's pretty big. I think that's the largest HM line I've heard about.

    Just to be clear, it’s not a real giant dog. That would be awesome though

    Anyone coming down now should still be good. There’s a lot left.

    Did cans of Three Fates sell out? They are not listed on their website.

    I don't think there were cans yet?

    I had asked around for both the new pilsner mug (ISO) and cans, but was corrected that there cans have not been released. I've been checking their site and insta (their website sometimes has goodies when they don't announce on insta, e.g. Midnight Still to go in June), but haven't seen cans at all.

    Ah, thanks for the clarification, this makes more sense.

    I need to get over there tomorrow for some of that Water and the Well. Stopped in at Floodland to pick up bottles and totally forgot.

    I'm headed up today before the Pearl Jam show. The usual Un Bien pickup > HM for open @ 3 is obvious.

    EDIT: if anyone is around, let's split some bottles.

    Praise Hempfest. Easiest can release ever.

    I’m sure it’s nothing but a pain in the ass for the employees all weekend, though.

    For real. My wife and daughter chilled at Starbucks while I ran across the street and got a 4-pack of each beer. Then we went to Discovery Park and ate a metric ton of blackberries.

    According to their website, they don’t. It’s normally pretty up to date. Still got kings head though

    Barrel aged Kings Head is fantastic and just as good.
