We fuckin did it.... For the win. Always a good time at Fling, best beer week event btw.
Fucking CALLED IT
Three team playoff! Tyrsis crushed a drive and Smaltz nailz a putt. Both threw straight steel to seal it. Congrats. Flags fly forever. You will always be champions. Great day.
Finally, a Lost Cause membership!
...oof, is it just me or does that price seem a little steep?
I value the bottles around 190-200 (25/bottle). The 2 parties will hopefully be either no payment for the meads either unlimited or like 5-6 pours, again, hopefully.
Aside from that, I think you would need to be able to take advantage of the discount to make up for it. I do think it is a tad much for what they are offering, but I can easily get back $60 in just discount usage.
So yes to being steep if you don't visit all that often.
Chasing Shadows might be the best IPA I've had all year.
Agreed. Also, Alvarado Street Fins & Faultlines is insanely good.
Who makes it? Not seeing any good info on Untappd or Googles.
I guess if they're going to start making meads north of $25, it's a little more reasonable, but it's a hard bargain for me - especially when some of their less expensive, more widely available meads are just as good. I killed a bottle of Lemon's Cello last week while marathoning through Mindhunter. No ragrets.
you can't fucking name the beer and not give any more damn info about it
I assume he meant Casting Shadows, a Burgeon/Societe collab (brewed at Burgeon).
It sounds like they are going to experiment more with the small batch meads and use pricier ingredients.
I agree, Lemon's Cello is stupidly crushable, just like the Heavy Meadows.
Oops! Yes, casting.
pretty much sums up craft beer right now.
I really like Burgeon. Their IPA is consistent and usually good to very good, though never reaching great. I had a taster of Casting Shadows at Bottlecraft and didn't think it was as good as Treevana or most of the other WC IPA they've done. I'll have to try it again, perhaps a pint this time.
I think I've had 6 or so pints in the last two weeks. And a boot at Obriens...
Hit up Societe to get those Pupil cans. Man I forget how much I take that brewery for granted - had a half pint of Coachman and it was legit one of the best IPAs I can remember drinking in a while.
Curious to get reports on the Pupil cans. That beer used to be awesome but I've been disappointed when I've ordered it the last couple years.
Just popped one.
That sounds like Pupil for the last five years. I wonder what happened to that beer. At this point it's been mediocre far longer than it was good.
The Pupil has relied on Nelson hops and Nelson hops have not been good until last year. I would assume they have been using the new crop by though.
