    Just had a pour at Town Hall. Didn't expect much but I was blown away. Thought it kicked Jim's twisted ass!

    Wow, that's one that I was going to skip since I didn't like the sound of it. Damn. I wonder if they will have it on tomorrow.

    Very close between this one and Buffalo Bock...

    My order:
    1 - Buffalo Bock
    1.5 - Tumaltuous Rare
    2 - Twisted Jim
    3 - Wee Jack

    All have been great, imo.

    Really interested in the barrelled DIPA tonight.

    Yeah, it was phenomenal. ISO: Tumultuous Rare

    To anyone that was down last night - do they have anything left on tap? Or has everything kicked the night they released it?

    It was pretty quiet when i was there at 10pm and I got a glass around 1030pm after going through Wee Jack and Twisted Jim. I would imagine that it would still be on tap tonight.

    Cheers

    Cool. I'm not heading down tonight but thought maybe I'd try to shoot over tomorrow morning. Beat the crowds. Would really like to try the Tumaltuous & the IPA they are releasing tonight.

    I have been there twice this week, and both nights still had the previous nights beer on tap.

    I am hoping to try it today. Especially since I traded my bottle away before the release! (I did get a major want for it, though)

    Sorry to rain on the parade, but I thought it was just OK, especially for a wheatwine, one of my favorite styles. But the base-beer was just OK for me too. Not bad, just not up to the standards of the previous three contenders.

    tewaris Advocate (595) Minnesota Jul 14, 2009

    I had a pour at midnight... so it was still there. I'd imagine it would last.

    I'll be there tonight, looking forward to trying the T-Rare again! Interested to see how this BA DIPA turns out.

    I had a Wee Jack and a Twisted Jim at lunchtime today (Thursday).

    I'll trade Tumaltuous Rare for Buffalo Bock or Twisted Jim if anyone is interested

    I have been really impressed by all so far, but I agree with DoctorRocks order so far. Buffalo, Temultuous, Jim, Wee. I am also intrigued for the barrel aged DIPA tonight. Going to hit Steel Toe before heading down.

    Just had some Tumaltuous and Twisted Jim this afternoon. Is this http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1177/75229 the correct profile to review it on? I'm not sure because none of the previous reviews talk about the bourbon which was pretty noticeable to me.
  19. tewaris

    tewaris Advocate (595) Minnesota Jul 14, 2009

    The Tumaltuous Rare is the beer that you have linked aged in Eagle Rare barrel.

    Any of you bitches going to be there tonight? I need me some monkey.

    Siting at the bar now. They still have every thing but buffalo Bock.

    The barrel monkey is my favorite so far. Prominent hops AND smooth bourbon. Yes they go together! Second favorite has been the buffalo bock. Then tumaltuous rare then wee jack. Thank you Town Hall!

    Knew it would be the best, since it has rare in the name

    Anybody know what time they're releaseing Czar jack for pick up? I hope its earlier than what they've been doing during the week
  25. Mista

    Mista Aficionado (205) Minnesota Nov 10, 2011

    I just called them. 5pm for bottles, tapping the keg at 6pm

    I'm shooting for a 5pm arrival or a 9pm arrival to avoid the madness!

    Btw - I'll trade a Tumaltuous Rare or Wee Jack for a Twisted Jim, Buffalo Bock or Barrel Monkey if anyone is interested

    I could have sworn I saw Tumaltuous rare on here yesterday when I tried to add a picture. I wonder if someone got overzealous and combined the two beers, or if no one ever added it to begin with (and I got overzealous with adding the pic).

    Tumaltuous. Very good. Much better than the regular.

    Barrel Monkey. Amazing. Wish they growlered these beers again this year...
  31. younger, did you aquire the size 11 you were hoping to get? also, cannot agree more about how good barrel monkey was, I figured it would be good, but completely blew away my expectations.
  32. Ungertaker

    Ungertaker Savant (460) Minnesota Apr 30, 2010

    Tough call as to which was best. My favorite was probably the Buffalo Bock. The others were all great, though!

    Barrel monkey was tasty. Chatted a bit with younger35. Always nice to meet another BA.

    I gotta agree and say, everything was great -- favorites were Tumaltuous, Buffalo, and Monkey... also, the whole week was run extremely well by the TH crew. Cheers to their hard work, it is much appreciated!

    Apparently their keg got shook up so they were not pouring Czar Jack when we got there at 9. Really disappointed I didn't get to try it. Anyone have it?
  36. MattyG85

    MattyG85 Champion (800) Minnesota Aug 31, 2010

    Shook up? Does that mean there will still be some left tomorrow?
  37. Steasy66

    Steasy66 Savant (345) Minnesota Feb 23, 2012

    Yeah, that is what they said when I called back at 11.

    As of noon Sunday Wee Jack, Twisted Jim, Tumaltuous Rare, and Czar Jack are still on. The Czar Jack is fantastic, as always.
  39. Ungertaker

    Ungertaker Savant (460) Minnesota Apr 30, 2010

    From the ticketing to the tapping of Czar Jack, the staff of Town Hall ran things as well as I could have expected. Cheers to them!
  40. I unfortunately was not able to get tastes of the Monkey or the Czar Jack, I am hoping to go there for lunch on Monday if any one wants to meet for a beer or two. I agree with other people's sentiments, I am kicking myself for only buyin one Bock. Great weekly event, was nice seeing most of the same faces there every day.
