All of the bottles and cans listed above will release at Hidden Springs Ale Works (1631 N. Franklin St. | Tampa, Florida) at 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 21. Any limits will be announced 15 minutes prior to the start of the release. Cash is preferred (it keeps the line moving), but cards will be accepted.

A few more things to keep in mind if you plan to attend this Mega Drop:

  • Parking is available up and down Franklin St., on Henderson just west of Tampa, and on 7th Ave. There are also paid lots located across the street from the brewery
  • Once you are in line, make sure that you hug the wall near the door on Henderson so that foot traffic will not be affected on the sidewalks
  • Above all, please be respectful of the brewery’s neighbors. Pick up after yourself and do not leave empty bottles and cans behind on the sidewalk, street, etc.

Do not sleep on Mega Drop 3.4 because the majority of these releases will undoubtedly sell out on September 21.  If you want/need these beers in your life (and who doesn’t?), make sure that you are in line no later than the final head count on Saturday morning.  Good luck out there and happy Mega Drop Day to you all.  Prost!
