I think Ephraim was $20+ for a fill.
You have a better chance of seeing inbev buying out HF than boston getting a regular distrobution of Hf.
Read through this thread just today and when I see this post about the shirt and then about the reasoning behind the no growler fills, I can't help but think "diva", and that's not in a good way.
Isn't the brewer being judgemental about anyone who might buy a growler of his beer?
Aren't you being judgemental in your post?
You are making the world a less joyful place to live.
We already do get a regular distribution of HF, it just comes in one carload at a time. Why ship it when we do the work for them...
I don't think covering the glass is unreasonable. I've had a glass of Edward skunk slightly at their festival once. I moved out of the sunlight after. It happens very quickly.
Heh. Sure. We'll just agree to disagree on that.
I don't understand how you can't agree when it's fact that sunlight skunks beer. Do you think the world has only been around for 10,000 years too?
So why ever drink it in the sunlight? Why allow it out of the brewery? It's overly dramatic. Its divaish
Like I said we'll just agree to disagree. It's definitely nothing to get in a RSF about.
Why create a brewery? Just brew everything in your basement and drink it by yourself in the dark.
Luxury car companies cover their cars in wraps or clay during transport. Just another bunch of divas protecting their product I suppose.
Edit: i do agree Shaun can be overprotectant of his product and how it is served. But I'd rather deal with the frustration of that and get a premium product than bad bottles from breweries that don't seem to care. It happens much too often.
Over dramatic is a theme in this thread. It is a fitting post.
I really need to step up my game if you guys are drinking pours in 13 seconds....
You are being just as dramatic. Somehow it's difficult to understand a basic concept on a different scale? It's very obvious what I'm saying you just want the chance to jump down my throat about it. And paint chips arent permanent like you are making it out to be.
no, i'm not being judgmental.
in the rest of the thread, though, you're acting butthurt about actions of a brewer that have nothing to do with you. ...then amusingly throwing around words like "diva."
"guys, i DO NOT like those things that guy in VT said to the people who buy his beer. it is NOT right! why is he SO SERIOUS ABOUT IT? i would NOT do that if I were in charge! listen to me, everyone!"
maybe you should have lurked and read posts a bit longer before joining in yourself.
Hah. Butthurt? Not even close.
I shouldn't have posted anything, you are correct there. Too many beers at the Rainiers game though and I suffered from poor judgement.
Did anyone check out HF's website lately?
haha, fantastic. Limit of 1 750 per person at the Harvest fest. What will be interesting is if Ephraim is available with a similar restriction once the Harvest Fest has come and gone... Or, is it only going to be available in growlers at the Harvest Fest?
Kinda settles it for ba's who think 6 month old ipa's are no big deal. Here's a great brewer saying otherwise , and Ephraim is phenomenal. I don't see beer on eBay.
There's several ipa's I've tried and thought they sucked, fresh these brews were great . Ephraim is a big beer with age I'd guess it to taste like old Maharaja which isn't a good thing. I can see why HF is doing this, hopefully they will bottle this one.
He does let you get growlers of Ephraim now. Last fall it was limit 1 750 now I believe it's 750 only but however many. Just don't do something dumb like save it.
This man is correct +1000
