    Thought the yeast harshed the flavor of the beer out too much
    enjoyed it more after standing the cans up for a couple of days

    Is 3 way readily available? Didn’t see it on Belmont Stations list and going to be back in town tomorrow, hoping to pick some up.

    Saw some at John's and my local MofC a few days ago, so I think it's definitely available around town. I'm surprised to hear that Belmont Station was out of it. Maybe just a temporary outage there?

    I haven’t seen 3-Way on shelves in Seattle since early June. That juice thirst is still real.

    The first round came and went quickly here in Eugene, still hoping for a second shipment one of these days.

    It looks like they just canned a fresh run according to facebook. Looking forward to trying some when I am in the area this weekend.

    Don't know if it's still there, but one of the beer guys at the University Village QFC was pointing it out to me last week, saying he was surprised to see how it was not moving very fast. Since it was a hazy and not really my style, I did not help him out by buying more. Those of you in Seattle still looking may want to give them a call. They cut back their craft beer section (no more giant stacks in the aisle near the coolers), but still have a better than average selection.

    sigh - it's one of those beers I'll buy if I see it but I won't go out of my way to find it.

    Same here. I've got two cans left from the June 4th batch that my PCC had, but I'm not really itching go on a beer hunt for more.

    This afternoon I stumbled across 4-packs of the 6/22/18 batch at Trader Joe's, Safeway, and Whole Foods (all Tanasbourne).

    I bought a 4-pack because Mrs. vurt likes it. And I picked up some pFriem Golden IPA and Jammy Pale Ale for me.

    Mrs. vurt opened a few cans of the 6/22/18 batch last night. That stuff has the color and opacity of unfiltered apple cider.

    Unappealing.

    I didn't care for 3 way this year, liked the past 2 years much more. Really loved the Optimist from them this year though.

    OK had a can..completely average for the muddy/milky beer sector.
    3-Way should be a treat not just a pale copy of those that have gone before

    Testify, brother. And it should be available in prodigious quantities throughout the summer, not in sporadic, piddly 4-packs here and there.

    I was drinking Barley Brown's Hazer Beam tonight. Good, but not a patch on Pallet Jack or Ratchet Strap.

    I am now switching to Ecliptic's Starburst IPA, which has earned its place in the rotation at stately Vurt Manor.

    Exactly. I mean, it was $10 at a local mini-mart. That's value. And that's why it's in the Rotation.

    Have you had a chance to try the David Hazzelhoff yet? For my money, that's the best hazy IPA I've had so far from BB. Still no Pallet Jack, but it's a good, solid hazy IPA.

    Pretty much my take as well. Not a bad beer for sure, but your description pretty much nails it I think. I tried it when it was first released and haven't had any interest in ordering it again since. Too much other stuff out there that is better (IMHO).

    Not to stick the knife in deeper but now drnking MT Orderville another excellent hazy... that is much more "together" and focused.
    Ft George should stick to what they do best in the 3-Ways and not be playing to the fadsters.

    I recently had cans dated 6/15 and 6/22 back to back and the 6/22 was much better. I also noticed when I rinsed the cans out (as I'm in the habit of doing), the 6/15 can had a bunch of junk left in the can while the 6/22 can rinsed out clean.
