I have a feeling this is what an addict feels like. I’m all itchy, nervous and my head is starting to swim with the idea that after I’ve gotten a taste, I’m not going to get another. How can you do this to me Schlafly? How can you finally give us an American IPA and then snatch it away again?
See that image to the right? I don’t know if I can live with the idea that I’ll never see that label up on the board at the Bottleworks again.
Ok, so maybe I’m being overly dramatic, but it’s a really good (insert profanity here) beer. I know that the hops for this year’s batch were a pain in the butt to come by, but it’s hop harvest time, right? Wouldn’t it be easier to obtain them now? I honestly don’t know the answer to that.
What I do know is that this was such a good beer that it would be a real waste if it was only brewed once in a blue moon. I also know that I can’t be the only one who feels the same way. We need to make our voices heard on this, we need to let Schlafly know how much we loved this beer.
One way of doing this is by, drinking the beer. Drew Huerter hopes that the kegs are drained in a month’s time. I’d like to see them drained faster than that. Let’s show them that this is a beer we crave. The second way of letting them know we want this beer full time is to keep (nicely) pestering them.
Let’s try and make this the next full time offering.
