Lagunitas is building a second brewery in Chicago. Hot damn

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-)
I never realize Tim Allen have book. But I know that he is a comedian, and a really good one. Nice to read the post, Ive got an idea.

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

my new neighborhood brewery just got their first beer advocate review:

Image
I was wearing a Far Side t-shirt when he came over. "I bet you didn't think I was the sort of person who wore t-shirts," I told him. (Our school had a dress code.) "I have three."

I could see how e-mailing the wrong person about sexy bathtime could be embarrassing.

drank the hemel and aarde bruichladdich barrel last night, liked it much better than the original
the peat plays really well with the malts, just a great stout

also the carbonation issues that plagued the original were totally nonexistent- excellent and appropriate level of carbonation in this version and none of this:

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

didnt get the oniony thing

not sure i can fuck with it too often at that price though
get the fuck out of my office
