despite my general distaste for mikkeller as of late i did end up enjoying the koppi coffee ipa i had on-tap. hops were present, subtle coffee was present, surprisingly balanced and the first brewery to really to think of the combination, so props for that. definitely on the more sessionable side, too, which is not the typical mikkeller M.O.



huh thats interesting.. i really didnt like the koppi (had it in bottle and on tap when it was first introduced last year), one of the only mikkellers thats really disappointed me

certainly respect the ambition though

Drinking this "Harviestoun Ola Dubh Special 12" which has been matured in Highland Park 12 casks. It's delicious.

Ola Dubh just made me decide to head over to the beer store.

blue blood seems so pointless to me. i do not understand the target market. there are plenty of other breweries making that kind of beer

i love green flash rayon vert so much. poor man's orval.

rabid rabbit was v disappointing

the rock candy added a cloying flavor that didn't play at all well with the spice, didn't work at all as a saison

Had a 3 floyds hell's black intelligencer last night, an oatmeal stout with intelligentsia coffee. I love coffee beers and this is isn't one that disappoints. It's lighter in alcohol and body than most coffee beers, which are usually big imperial stouts. Reminds me of a more sessionable version of founder's breakfast or alesmith speedway, really intense coffee flavor. I'm feeling inspired to brew something similar.

I just drank a small bottle of Cantillon Rose. First time I have ever had this one. It was good, but unlike other fruit cantillons I prefer classic gueuze to this one.

best label though,

got suckered into buying this because of the name/packaging

its a pretty decent beer, although it seriously is a bit oniony, but 14 bucks for 4 tallboys is quite steep

that spot is fuckin' huge, how much product do they expect to produce out of it? Are they just going to do just their regular batches or are they going to do some small batches exclusively out of this brewery??

Can you ask if they have plans for a Chicago brewpub to go along with their production brewery? their Petaluma happy hour and weekly firkin tapping is pretty awesome, and I'd love to see something like that in Chicago. Also, are they planning to expand their barrel aging program?

love 4 packs because 3 usually suit me well on the weekday. Otherwise I buy 2 bombers and if it's a weeknight I get a little too drunk for a weeknight.

So I didn't want to stray too far from chicago/the new brewery so I did't ask him about bombers/4 packs. He didn't outright say the new brewery doesn't mean they won't move into LA but he did say it's more about keeping up with demanding and reducing transportation costs/emissions than expanding.

Kuboaa, 140,000 barrels initially.they're not occupying the entire space, just half of it, which is still 150k sqft. As far small batches, they're essentially building a midwest outpost, so they'll do everything here that they do in Petaluma, and Petaluma will continue to to produce everything it already does. Everything east of the rockies will come from here. He sounded excited about doing small batch, chicago-exclusive stuff like Zephyr but there aren't any plans for anything like that right now.

Potential Boarder, it sounds like nothing's concrete but he was very excited about doing certainly a tasting center if not a full on brewpub. I think he wants to, it just depends on how the location works, permits, etc. Which I imagine won't be a problem. Did not ask why he thinks anyone likes their shitty IPA.

Also did a nice little #shotsfired. In talking about how quickly this came about, he talked about how awful it is when companies take a year to scout locations, about how it's really about getting states/towns to offer kickbacks. Said "that's how you end up in Asheville, and not somewhere cool like Chicago." 8-)

that's pretty funny.

but...asheville seemed pretty logical for NB/SN to me. It's a very leisure-friendly town in the same vein as ft. collins and chico
