    Should be closing on a house in about a month and a half that's only 20 minutes away, so that's a plus.
    Ive been to HVB and had a really bad time getting service. Their only 1 star review on Facebook is from my wife haha. Ended up leaving without getting to drink anything, which is a shame because a lot of my beer friends say lots of good stuff. I'm not trying to discourage you from going because I hear they're great, it just sucks we didn't have that experience.

    Also grats on your house! We definitely have no shortage of good breweries in our area. Check out equilibrium if it's not too far for you. Also district 96 finally opened. You should stop by since iirc your parents live in that area.

    I've been there two or three times. Service was slow the first time, but I never thought it was too terrible. The first time we went it was pouring rain with everyone inside hanging around the bar so it was crowded there, rather than people spreading out inside.

    After that it was just like any other bar I've been to where I wasn't a regular. They did their best to keep track of who approached first.

    EDIT: They have some good sounding barrels still fermenting in their warehouse/tap room. A lot of their stuff is sours I feel, which is the new trend after all, but they had a good saison a couple weeks ago and their Pillow Hat is a nice pale.

    Six year anniversary today. Just got back from a dinner of excellent sushi. Decided to treat myself and get a 4 pack of Founders DKML. So good and a sleeper at 14.2% but is super easy going.

    worth a buy? i've seen it around but the malt liquor label gave me flashbacks to young days full of steel reserve, and that is a terrifying memory, lol.

    DKML is extremely smooth. Dark Horse German Hobo Malt Liquor has a slight bite, but it's much cheaper. I enjoy both.

    DKML is smooth and easy when it's cold but the second it warms even a bit it becomes flash backs of OE 40s and shots of cheap whiskey, I just can't. German Hobo Malt Liquor makes fantastic brass monkeys though fyi.

    Speaking of Founders, it looks like CBS will be back this year as part of their BA series.

    Just speaking frankly, once I got to the third DKML I didn't notice any bite or any change. Pretty obvious why...

    Side note, my best friend loves the rapper E-40 and he has many side ventures including Sluricane, 40 Water, and the ever so obvious E-40 Malt Liquor. The last one isn't bad really, for a 10% 40 at only $5. But I suppose that's if it's a cheap night trying to get hammered.

    Got there about 45 mins early and the line went around the parking lot and to the road. I was standing on line at one of the drive ways. Took about an hour after they opened up to get to the register, but it went fine and I got what I originally wanted to get (only half the allotment). Hyperlight (the DDH IPA) is tasty. I'm going to have another tonight. Ultasphere is also good, similar to their other sour IPAs, with the added fruit and vanilla. Incandenza I've had multiple times before, but I still really like it.

    Was directly in line behind a guy that was from the town my wife and I are (hopefully) moving to. He knew the owner and told me the owner was possibly going to use the second and third floors of the building to open a small restaurant and a catering hall. Said he went for the first can release, got there when they opened the door, and was standing at the corner of the building next to the door. Last month he couldn't make it because he just closed on a house, but the owner saved him some. This time the owner came out to check out the line and saw him so he came over. The owner looked nervous, like he wasn't ready for so many people, and the guy I was talking to kept saying it was a good thing and to calm down. It'll be interesting to see how long the hype lasts. I wouldn't mind going for another release after we move up there.

    @Xerlic - I completely missed the last part of the post before. Thanks, hopefully it works out. The owner has to clean up an old oil tank before anything is final so fingers crossed. I went to District 96 about a month ago and picked up a couple crowlers. Got the Three Headed Monster, Father of All Bombs, and the Ten Four. They were all pretty good.
