Someone posted a comment on Friday, March 31 at 12:52 p.m. indicating that “if you try to go to the [Wild Hop Lager] website now, you’ll find it’s down.” I checked it again a few hours later and it was still down, which is a little strange. Websites don’t usually go down for maintenance in the middle of the day and if they do, it’s usually for a short period of time. I tried to visit the website again this morning but it’s still down. All you see there now is a blank white screen with “This page is temporarily down. Please check back later.” It’s written in small black text which makes it a pretty sparse placeholder. In internet time, being down almost forty-eight hours is a very long time, indeed. I wonder what it will be like when it’s finally back up? It should be interesting to see what changes they’ve made.
UPDATE (Apr. 3, Noon): The website was still down as of Noon.
UPDATE (Apr. 4): Still down today. That’s four days now it’s been “temporarily” down.
UPDATE (Apr. 5): Day five of the website being “temporarily” down.
UPDATE (Apr. 7): Okay, it’s been seven days now. I’d say a week of being “temporarily” down strains the definition of “temporarily” quite a bit.
UPDATE (Apr. 9): Day nine of the website being “temporarily” down.
UPDATE (Apr. 17): Day seventeen and the website is still amazingly “temporarily” down.
UPDATE (Apr. 20): Day twenty of the website being “temporarily” down.
