post #10036 of 10835

I don't love beer (in the general sense), perhaps because I so rarely find beers that I enjoy, but I always have some in stock and am always trying new things - I tried this Flemish Red the other day and loved it! I will have to explore these sour beers more, because I just loved this stuff.

 

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01

 

I tend also to like English bitters (Wells' Bombardier on cask is a perennial favorite), some Saisons (Goose Island Mathilda), for instance, Belgians like Chimay, and only the occasional IPA (Sierra Nevada, and Dogfish 90).

 

Any other suggestions for me to try?

Seems like you enjoy a good variety of stuff!.. If you like Flemish Old Browns, try Rodenbach Vintage, or start with Grand Cru. Maybe try other (slightly) sour beers such as Oerbier, geuzes perhaps,..

As for saisons, why not try Orval, or Prairie Standard, Logsdon Seizoen Bretta, saison Dupont,... Depends where you're from, and what you have access to... If you're from Vermont, drink all the Hill Farmstead you can...

I want to say $12, but I never really looked at the price.

I was introduced to Karmeleit a couple years ago when the bar near my office managed to get it on tap for their Christmas party. Fantastic stuff.

Just discovered Tree House Brewing is 25 min from my house.

 

Will report when I make it out to buy some of their brews.

Be prepared for an hour plus wait. I went last week at 7pm on Thursday and got 6 cans and 3 growlers. No wait for cans, but 50 minutes for growlers. But if you go, check out Yankee Spirits in Sturbridge (another 20 minutes on Rt 20). They have Trillium and a great selection of Night Shift and a very good overall selection.

Did you call in to find out what is available? Their tap room page doesn't give me enough information.

They update their page daily Wed-Sat. You won't find out what they have that day until they do.

Their twitter sometimes has some info ahead of the site, and Nate posts on Beer Advocate, but with their popularity they have gotten more discreet with info on releases of things like Good Morning or King Julius.

They usually do two canning runs for Wednesday that are mostly gone an hour or so after they open on Thursday. There is usually a canning run on Thursday and occasionally one on Friday. They will keep at least two growler options on through Friday, but can run out on Saturday and won't tap new kegs.

All the beers are good, so it's worth it if you're willing to wait that long for a small amount of beer.

The Sturbridge pointer is appreciated, too. I'm sure I'll hit it up at some point. 

 

What was the growler and can price range? I wouldn't mind getting both, if that's the way to go. 

post #10049 of 10835
From memory, cans run $3.75-$4.25. Growlers are $8-$12 without the cost of the bottles.

I really miss th. I was one of their first patrons and had to get my car pushed out of the snow by dean the first winter they were open.
