Yeah sure I'm interested in what was there. I just seen they had some new releases in the states, be interested to know if they'll be getting them here as quick.

Also one of the bars outside had special variants, e.g. i had the Bourbon Barrel aged Imperial Irish stout, and tried their Chai spiced Imperial Russian stout. From the new Berlin brews i had the Imperial Coconut Hazelnut Porter (lovely).
Also had the red wine barrel aged Old Guardian, and the 2016 w00tstout.

All solid.

Well opulent :lol:
So i bought a t-shirt.

Savage selection. Its those anniversary ones I was wondering about, think that Porter 6 is just out. Berlins been on my list of potential Euro weekends away for a while. This could tip the balance.

Have always thought Koch was a bit of a fraud and complaining about being undercut is weak from him considering way, way smaller breweries are dealing with that shit all the time.

In related news ABinbev bought up the biggest homebrew supply store in the US. The purchase was made by a department that acquires business to basically ruin them. The macros ar coming for everyone.

It's a well regarded complex one.
Didn't in the end. 12e (<- ffs i hate macs) for a 330. Gotta draw the line somewhere.
So had Stone's bourbon imperial irish stout.
It tastes better when it's free.
