Why is it that Other Half charges $16 for a pint of non-barrel aged pastry stout whereas Aslin only charges $8 (back when they were still putting stouts in a can?)

Picked up Other Half's "Small Citra Everything" at the Maryland Other Half Depot this weekend. That's the way an IPA should taste.

Light, flavorful, and in the mid 6% range. Would drink all day.

The Maryland Other Half Depot received a large Equilibrium can drop yesterday...

Maybe my favorite hops/haze brewery.

I'm not a big fan of the value ratio of growler fills, but H Street Whole Foods currently has a Burley Oak JREAM beer on draft for growler fills. (Do they ship those cans to anywhere in the DMV?)  I'm not sure how much the cans go for at the brewery, but $20 for a 64 oz fill ($14 for 32) was enough to make me dust off a couple of growlers. I hope my wife likes blueberry.

Just making reference to the many beer loving neckbeards who must be making that store their second home...

Picked up some of the Equilibrium MC2.  It's excellent.

Question-How come the offerings these days are mostly 16 ounce cans?  I much prefer twelve ouncers.
