Slightly more interesting than previous packs. I'll pick up a few.

The press release for this pack went around this morning. It was rush released to capitalize on the increased beer sales expected for the Olympics (and I guess the Superbowl as well).

And yes, it's back to bottles for this one.

Did Old Credit go with the smaller bottle for this, or de we get to enjoy a big-ass bottle of Hoptical?

Glad to see that the OCB is getting bolder. Hopefully it pays off for them

Indeed.
I'm glad they're not doing one thing really, really well.

Not a bad release at all frankly. 4 out of the six I would buy in a six pack already, nice. :D

Always excellent for two reasons- to re-visit old faves, and to check how others are doing.

Think I'll take a pass on this and buy a six-pack of the nut brown instead.

I checked and while I know Hoptical is 355mL (we brew it), Old Credit is also 355mL though their bottle is listed as 341ml. That was sort of weird. I'm not quite sure that is what you are asking.

You're a tough nut to crack Bobsy. I promise to work harder to win you over to our side!

Yours in brewing,
