The other 4pk is in the fridge.

( 4pk of heady 2 JA ABCs and 2 JA Hoptonious Unions ) x 2 One headed to Chiland for a pipeworks package and 1 to Cali for an alpine package.

Ignore that its upside down....idk why it does this.

How is the JA - ABCs? I was back in Boston a few weeks ago and stocked up on Hoponius Union, Jabby Brau, Smoke & Dagger, Private Rye, and also grabbed the Framinghammer to bring back with me to NY. The HU is probably my favorite everyday beer.

I didn't love the ABCs, not bad but prefer Hoponius.  Kiwi Rising was really good thougfh/

I had a bottle of Kiwi Rising a few months ago that was bought at retail. I think it was a few months old when purchased and as a result was "off."

Kiwi was amazing...my palate is off as I have a cold now so I cant speak of ABCs quite yet.

@bdeuce22 I just picked up my bottles of Doom, I would get at least a bottle of it. IMO it's very good

Apparently brewery still has some

queens is such a cesspool for good beer frown.gif i unfortunately don't have the time to make the trek to manhattan that often, and it's a pain in the ass to carry it back on the lirr.

Bottled my second batch of beer today.
I am new to this so I can't tell...but I think it tastes a little funny frown.gif

Here's hoping its just green and will taste great when it is done carbonating!

Brooklyn is far better than Manhattan

I guess it depends on what you are looking for taste-wise and whether you want to go to a bar or retail for bottle or growler fills. There are a ton of options in Brooklyn where I am. Occasionally I will bring back bottles from Whole Foods in Tribeca or Houston. Both have a great selection of bottles and growler fills. Take a look at beermenus.com as it is a good jumping off point.

Here's a link with Queens as the location then you can sort places nearby.

Kyle- Did you ever eat at Pizza Rustica (across the street from TAC Quick) when you lived in that area? They've moved across the street into a much larger space and gotten a liquor license. No taps but they often have an interesting bottle selection.

Never a long beer list, but usually has some hard to find picks (had a KBS there last weekend).
