    I'll be flying back in on the 29th. Land at 6:39, I might be able to stop by if they don't close at 7.. No checked bags. I saw they open their tasting room early, maybe they stay open later sometimes? Would like to see what all the mexi cake hubbub is about.

    The taproom staff does not like to stay late. Odds of them being open later are pretty close to zero, in my experience

    Has anyone had this yet? Saw the Charleston Beer Exchange tweet a couple days ago they got it, but that it was pretty limited. Last one I had was the Lemon Coconut version, and it was awesome.

    If you come across extras, I'd be more than happy to trade you for one. :)

    Doing these WWB variants is a really nice move by Westbrook. The base beer is damn good and it's very amenable to the treatments they've been doing. Lemon Coconut is one of my favorite beers they've released.

    Agreed. I need more of these in my life. Especially love their low cost.

    A friend was at CBX yesterday and said no more whiskey WWB.

    Yeah given the tweet I saw I figured those would go quick. Wondering what the availability is like at the brewery.

    I had no idea the Westbrook 5th Anniversary beer was out... but apparently Green's in Greenville has it at their growler bar. Looking at their release calendar and it does show they release it in December. Guess I'm just use to Atlanta getting it a few months later usually, and associate their anniversary with February.

    Either way, this beer doesn't sound all that great to me... but I'll snag one if I can. Anyone around here give it a try yet?

    "thin to medium body" isn't what I like to hear for this kind of beer and makes me think "Pipeworks Raspberry Truffle Abduction", but I'll certainly give it a try in a couple of weeks when I get home. I liked the Raspberry Mexican Cake more than most who I talked with about it at the BA Cake release so I wouldn't be shocked if I enjoy this one.

    Exactly what I was thinking. A raspberry stout that's pushing 11%... and it's thin? No thanks. I did enjoy the raspberry Cake as well, though. I'm sure I'll give this one a try at some point too, but doesn't sound great to me like the last 2 did.


    Big Lushious was what came to mind for me, minus the chocolate I guess. I wasn't a fan of that beer at all.

    Normally don't like raspberries in anything but something sour, but as mentioned it's WB so I'll give it a shot. Anny 4 was the tits

    Margarita Gose as well this week, all sorts of cool stuff dropping while I'm out of the state! Just as well, blowing a ton of money on travels right now. ;)

    Another new one, from the looks of the label is Siberian Black Magic Panther but without any barrel-aging (maybe that's coming later?). To the best of my knowledge (which means I'm probably completely wrong) this is the first time the base beer as been released on its own.
