I'd have to imagine that the line wouldn't be bad at midday, midweek. I could be wrong though. You'd probably know better than I.

Since you're a local, I'd say it's definitely worth the trip, even by yourself.

I could be persuaded
Let me know your plans.
I went again yesterday and got there about 1:15 and it was a tad over 2 hrs. Sure was worth it.

The table of 4 next to us actually got cut off at 4 glasses.

We were there Sun night and Mon morning. It was great. PTY was an awesome beer, but for me, RR's sours are the standout. What a great lineup of extreme experimental brews.
Supplication
Sanctification
Consecration.

Consecration is an 1.078 beer dried all the way out to 10% ABV. Amazing.

Our waitress was really nice. She said 3max initially, but as long as you weren't slamming them, eating some food, drinking some water, and taking your time, she would work with us.

I have nothing but great things to say about their entire staff while we were there.

Yah, last week when I went there were def some folks out on the front patio that were totally smashed.. I was surprised they were still serving what with legal responsibilities. When I pour at events, I have to cut people off.. I DON'T want to be in a lawsuit of any kind..

This stuff is 10.8% almost wine ABV's and when you consider 10 oz pours.. sheesh.. smash time.

I was there opening day (3rd in line), and can say the staff is top notch, Anthony behind the bar for sure. I had as many Youngers as they would serve me, which at last count was over 12... I think. We got in at 10:30, and poured ourselves into a cab around 10:00pm. An unbelievable time, planning on making the trip out again next year.

I was able to talk to Vinnie in line, as we'll as in the pub. He told me they brewed about 100 bbl, but didn't yield anywhere close to that, and that certain distributors wouldn't be getting what they've gotten in the past.

Please update your clone thread when you do, very interested in giving this one a try.

Here's the general gist. I'll be cutting the C40 down to 2 or 3%. 0.5oz less Amarillo @ flameout, and here's the dry hop schedule:

DH1: .5oz ea: Simcoe/Amarillo
DH2: 1oz ea: CTZ/Centennial
DH3: .5oz ea Simcoe/Chinook
DH4: 1oz ea Simcoe/Amarillo

My clone last year was dangerously close, I just didn't have any reference at the time. Just a little too much Amarillo/Centennial character. Also a pinch too much C40. There's definitely some C40 in that beer, just not quite 4%.

I'm really looking forward to it.

It's a good thing I only have about a 100ft crawl back to my house.
