Default Growlers, Logs, Kegs, Casks & Funnels: A Beer Thread

Eff it I dont think we have one of these yet and now that I am completely intrenched I figured we should start something up. I am not going to post exclusively about my brewery because thats an asshole'ish and they aren't sponsoring the forum. If we have something new I'll post it up give tasting notes etc. but thats it. Im not gushing about anything.

The cool thing is I love all beer and go out of my way to find it.

First off anyone wanna ride up to Treehouse with me Saturday morning? Everyone loves Julius and rightly so but man I love Haze and Green I missed a lot of the newer stuff.

I got kicked out of Armsby Abbey in Worcester after 5.5 hours of drinking all of the Hill Farmsteads they had on draft. Unbelievable destination Sav literally is the luckiest dude alive I really hope he likes beer.

I just had Hill Farmsteads Arthur that I traded for a can of Haze not too long ago. Shit was so flipping good. Their stuff is so effervescent and light.. I love it.

I am getting into sours a lot more since BHB has a funk tank that makes some pretty wild stuff.

Anyone going to Eli's Cannon's Brewfest on August 3rd?


Ok thats how I'll start it off so you go!

If you're getting in to sours I recommend White Birch Berliner Weisse it's become one of my go to sours.

My brother was just at Hill Farmstead this past weekend and brought me back some Society and Solitude #1 such a good IPA.

We now own a decent size liquor store with a very large craft beer section and we are always trying different things. The styles and amount available in this day and age is incredible.

I'm no beer snob, but am totally down for weekend day-drinking trips.

It's crazy the amount of craft brewers. There's a huge bubble coming when it bursts and the IPA craze dies down it'll be interesting to see who is left! For now I just love the fact that there is soo much crazy stuff out there!

I wish treehouse was like that. Instead you show up wait for 1 to 3 hours more sometimes and leave.

Just looked on yelp, those wait times at treehouse sound horrible. They don't even have beers for you to drink when you are in line. I can't see the beer being good enough for the wait.

I was waiting for this question from someone. The store we purchased is Yankee Wine and Spirits next to Big Y in Newtown. My brother has managed it for many years and now my family is finalizing the purchase. As soon as the liquor commission signs off on the liquor license the store ownership will transfer and it will officially be ours. Once everything is done I will be working on getting the word out there as we are updating as well.

Have you tried Cuvée Des Jacobins Rouge? My favorite all around.
