Boneyard question

Discussion in 'US - Northwest' started by Alieniloquium, Jan 20, 2013.

  1. I missed Boneyard on my Oregon trip and I wanted to put up an ISO for some growlers. I figured I should find out if they even fill growlers first. Do they fill growlers? What sizes? And do they post what's currently available anywhere?
    Thanks for any info anyone has.

    It's been a few months so this may be a bit out of date but yes they fill 32 and 64 oz, priced from 8-15 for 64 oz fills. They post availability infrequently via twitter @BoneyardBeer but most of their beers, aside from Notorious and Suge Knight, are generally available all the time.

    Yeah they do and most bars in portland will do growlers of their stuff which is all over the place right now.
  4. I'm not sure when you'll be trying to get a growler fill, but I was there yesterday and was told they are putting Bourbon Barrel Suge Knight on in the next few days. Give them a call and I'm sure they'll let you know what five beers they have on tap.

    Boneyard will definitely fill growlers and sells a lot of beer to locals that way. The problem - most of those growlers never make it through the evening. Boneyard is so damn good, it's hard to imagine packing their beer into a box instead of sitting down and drinking it yourself.

  6. They tend to update their Facebook page fairly often with what's brewing/on tap.

    Suge!!?? Dang..missed it by one week. If you can get a growler of Suge(I can't believe they would) GET TWO!
  8. The last picture on Boneyard's FB feed had Suge as tasters only, no growler fills.
  9. Had that BB Suge Knight at the Burgundian Imperial fest 2 weeks ago, a monster of a beer. Really damn good, though.

  10. I stopped by and had it as well. It was a bit hot and unbalanced, I'd love to see how it ages.

    I haven't had the BA Suge Knite, but I don't see how it could top regular Suge Knite. That beer is about perfect as far as non-BA imperial stouts go.

  12. Completely agree. Regular Suge is amazing, I can't imagine what some time in a barrel would do to that lovely beast. I'd be happy to try it though!
  13. Boneyard taps a BA Suge Knite every year during Bend's "Little Woody" festival. Great Beer.

  14. I had this at Back in Black and also found it too hot and unbalanced. For me, anything over 12% is just overkill and the alcohol taste distracts from the overall enjoyment of the beer. That's just me.

    Lucked into the Barrel-Aged Suge on our trip to Bend this weekend. They don't do growlers of it, but as part of the incredibly cheap tasting flight, it was worth the price of admission alone. Vanillin goodness.

    BA Suge Nite is hontestly one of the best beers that comes out of Oregon. Its just incredible, up there with all the rare BA stouts.

  17. The first thing I noticed when I tasted regular Suge was how it didn't taste as strong as the high ABV suggests.

    I think that the experience of drinking wine should make it clear that "booziness" or "hotness" or "strong-tasting" are only loosely related to ABV. No one has ever complained that a 12% wine was too boozy.

  19. Very true. Only a very few wines have come off to me as being "hot".
