Yeah I haven't but seemed like everyone at GABF last year was losing their shit over Bierstadt's. One of my local brewers goes there when he goes (sometimes multiple times a trip).

Someone I know gave me a box of beer mail filled with Trillium and Lawson's because they dumped the guy that sent it.

Best thing about St. Louis tbh.

For IPAs 2nd shift Little Big Hop is the best I’ve had here.

In NC for a few days this week. Tried a bunch of wicked weed sours. Not the best I’ve ever had but solid contributions.

I had some great beer at cellador back in 2017. I haven’t experienced the kind of fruit variety they offer anywhere else, even on site at ale apothecary, de garde, sante adarius, etc.

A lot of brewers seem to mainly stick to stone fruit and berries which while fine can be a bit predictable. Hard to get excited about a single berry sour.

It’s $9/12 oz bottle at my local dispensaries. Not certain if it’s worth it.

Is anybody hitting up any of the LA Beer Week events next week? I'm probably skipping the kickoff but I'll be hitting up the Herm tomorrow for their Cellarmaker tap takeover and I'll be at Sour Friends Fest next weekend. Not sure what else to check out.

The tap list for Sour Friends Fest looks fantastic and I have a feeling it'll be overlooked this year due to people avoiding it after some of Cellador's issues from the first fest.

Nice! How was the event? Love that spot.

Nelson, Baby is so good. For anyone who gets Alvarado Street distro, if you see it around you should grab a 4-pack. That and Double Mt. Nelson are easily my two favorite nelson hopped IPAs of the past few years.

it's no secret that Monkish makes a ton of very good hazies that all taste similar, but their recent "What Would Dion Do" TIPA was best-in-class outstanding

Did anyone go to omnipolloscope? It was almost an hour and a half wait for the first 150ml pour here. Ridiculous.

I remember when they opened they were supposed to be a spot where home brewers or people wanting to start their own brewery would be given a 'platform' to create their beers.

https://www.cleveland.com/drinks/2014/0 ... pen_d.html
The business plan

Platform is very much "home-brew inspired," said Benner, who has home-brewed for four years. It is a small-business incubator as much as it aims to be an anchor business in the neighborhood.

"Every 12 weeks, one individual goes through an application process and works as a brewer's apprentice, brewing with Shaun," said Benner, a 31-year-old Baldwin Wallace University graduate who studied business administration. "They work for minimum wage while shadowing Shaun. Many of the people are home brewers who never got a chance to brew commercially.


I'm not sure when thye pivoted but it was probably 2016 or so when they ramped up production and dropped that idea to focus on just churning as much shit out as possible. the head brewer who they hired on was really good and it all went downhill after he was fired. sucks though cause it was a good reason for me to head over to my old neighorhood in cleveland, guess i'll just go to great lakes.
