HOW MUCH OF (INSERT BEER NAME) DO YOU HAVE LEFT? / WILL IT BE THERE IN (INSERT VALUE) OF TIME?
We do not have a constant monitoring system for our inventory and are not able to give you up to the minute information on the current inventory. Hopefully, when we grow a little more we can add a monitoring system and give access on our website to watch as it develops. Lastly, we do not know how quickly the beer will sell. Some days it’s gone faster than expected and others it last longer than previous releases. The best way to know is to follow us on Instagram for morning tap information and any updates as beer sells out.
HOW LONG ARE THE LINES? / WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE FOR (INSERT BEER) RELEASE?
We do not really know the best way to answer this. It varies every week and with the beers being released. Sometimes weather impacts even the most hardened line devotees. Again, our suggestion is to watch social media as our guests do a good job of keeping people informed.
For bottle releases at our Alexandria location, we now use a ticketing system that allows you to relax and have a pint and a meal while you're waiting to purchase bottles.
DO YOU HAVE GLUTEN FREE BEER?
No, we do not have gluten free products. We have some beers that are made with corn and use a clarifying agent that reduces gluten, but none of them are tested, certified or sanctioned by us or any agency as gluten free. We wouldn’t even feel comfortable saying they are gluten-reduced products. Best to be safe and treat all of our beers as you would any other product containing gluten.
COULD I STOP BY WHEN YOU'RE CLOSED?
For the purposes of fairness, we prefer that you don’t. We have a constant fluctuating schedule and there is no telling whether we will be too busy to entertain you or chat. We have suppliers, brewer visits, employee meetings, and interviews to conduct throughout our non-operating hours and cannot always make time for shenanigans, because we are busy masquerading as adults fulfilling expectations created by the man.
DO YOU USE ADDITIVES? JUICE, FLOUR?
No, we do not! The only exception would be our Gose or Berliner Weisse series. We use fresh fruit and fruit puree.
