On a related note, I’ll be bringing in Garden Path this month so keep an eye out and then buy it, and a big load of Afterthought just hit the market as well.
I will officially endorse this plug. I also approve of Doug keeping us informed of all things Rev, including hopefully eventually telling me that I can get Ghost Ride cases year round 😁

What's the most can't miss bottle of the ones that just dropped? I'll pick one up tomorrow.
In that "Time Crunch" video, I asked Schallau for his favorite Chicago-made saison ever and I finished his sentence choosing your Key Lime and Yuzu one.

As far as Rev, tons of cool stuff coming but unfortunately Ghost Ride isn't likely to go year-round anytime soon. We announced two Summer Deep Wood beers coming in June and July respectively on our zoom tasting last Friday that i'm pretty jazzed about.

Biere de Pieces #23 is the correct answer.

Rafters: Black Raspberry if you really like fruit more than the blends.

Thank you, sir! I’m not sure which stores ordered it, but Biere de Pieces #23 is a new favorite of mine. It’s a blend of Saison Meer: Buckwheat and Rafters, the latter of which is an oak-fermented saison brewed with ages hops. For those who like mead, Secondary Extraction is the second beer we aged in a Pips raspberry mead barrel.

Capone's inexplicably still had the Key Lime Yuzu Wine Barrel fobab winner on the shelf, so I grabbed that and the cherry Rafters before seeing your recommendations. Looks like I have some more shopping left to do.

This is true. But this is crazy. I'm just mostly curious if this is a bad sign for a damn good bar. $10 Eclipse bottles...
I sure hope not. Local Option was the bar that got me into beer about 10 years ago...still try to visit 1-2x’s a year. Their creole wings are so damn good.

Can anyone tell me my a can of beer feels normal at room temperature but then gets squishy when it’s cold? Is it safe to drink?

Edit - it’s a can of NvU, so I posted here.

Thoughts or rumors on the demise of 3 Floyds brewpub? Didn't even burn down. SMDH.
Saw they let a bunch of brewpub and distillery employees go and they announced I large sale of vintage and barrel aged Dark Lord's. Are the Floyd's finally selling? Are these the end times?

My favorite part of 3 Floyds was always the brewpub. Honestly a true destination experience. Hopefully this is not permanent. I am not worried about the future of the brewery in general.
