    I know nothing of this thread but how it is not titled "Ohio Players" makes me feel like someone really dropped the ball.

    I am looking at you Envelopes

    How'd we miss this? The resemblance of us Ohio folks at releases around these parts is uncanny

    If you're talking ab WR bottle release, that shouldn't be a concern. Last time, I went at 2:30 after work and easily got a full allotment. I expect this to be the same. Unless they're releasing a super limited beer, I.E. that "lambic", there's no reason to rush. Releases are something they've really excelled at

    How were the Dire Wolf variants this weekend? Didn't make it due to battling a vicious cold but curious as people on untappd didn't look too impressed..

    Rum Line was fantastic. Perhaps a little less coffee-forward than the bottles from last year, but that might make it more appealing for some.

    Port Barrel was decent from a change-of-pace perspective. Much more subdued flavor than the Sherry Barrel, which was very polarizing. I dug it, but I was the outlier amongst the folks I was with.

    Didn't actually try the straight Bourbon barrel version, as between the timed taps and traveling from the Tap Room to the "Other Side" there were too many other things I wanted to taste first.

    Too lazy to search and see if this has been covered already...

    Hitting Fat Heads (taphouse, not pub) in a few days. Want somewhere in that area to get a cocktail and decent dinner as well. Any suggestions would be great.

    If you're looking for really good cocktails, Velvet Tango Room is supposed to have some of the absolute best. I don't drink liquor so I can't speak to the quality, but all I hear is that they're amazing. Some great restaurants close to there too (Bar Cento, Fahrenheit, Parallax)

    hello not very active thread--i'm heading back up from columbus to ann arbor sunday and decided to grab a ticket for the hoof hearted release as i'll be driving right by. how do these releases go? is there a line, or can i just cruise in at any point in the time block? i don't necessarily feel like sticking around.

    Seems like the later you go, the odds of a line go down. Even if there is a line, it's been moving quick the last few times I've gone.

    At Konkey they had a can only line, not sure if that will continue or not.

    The roller Blabe release is at thebrewery in Marengo which is about 30 minutes north of Columbus. The brewpub in downtown Columbus has random cans but it's usually stuff that is brewed at the pub.

    Word - my point was the brewery is 30 mins closer so I'd much rather just get cans from there instead
