==MORNING WOOD BOTTLE LIST==

Important! Bottle releases will be very limited. For this reason, and in the interest of fairness, bottles will not be available for sale through our servers or the main bar at the time of release. Instead, we will form a separate line at the time of release at the upstairs Huma Room bar. Each beer will be limited to 1 per a person initially. After you purchase your first round of bottles, if you wish, you may get back in line and purchase an unlimited amount of what is left. This will ensure that every person in the initial line will get at least 1 bottle until the supply runs out. All bottles left over will be sold through our servers & at the bar starting 1 hour after the initial release. Our apologies for the complication, but this is the fairest way we can distribute these limited releases.
