    Just wanted to put the word out they've had BCBS on tap for a few days now, along with a keg of FBS that was tapped yesterday.

    Too bad it's snowing out now, otherwise I'd drop by after work. :slight_frown: I've been meaning to check out Barley Vine since hearing about their opening.

    Certainly worth it. Great place. Setup reminds me a lot of the Armsby Abbey in Worcester.

    Ate there last night too. One-person pizza was quite good. GFs mac and cheese was so-so.

    Yeah,I saw this earlier.
    Cracks me up as I have been told that southern CT. has received "some"logs,(no bottles yet)and will not be releasing them until the entire shipment comes in.I saw Plan B in Glastonbury put a log on about a month ago.......:astonished:

    I wish they would atleast give us the logs to nibble on here in S.CT. while we wait.

    Cheers All........

    Was it a distributor who said that? They're probably afraid of bars gouging the price if they're the only one(s) in town with FBS or BCBS on tap.

    (only $24.99 per 5 oz. glass)

    There's some BCBS on tap in West Hartford as well in case anyone is looking to get their fix.

    Visited Barley Vine last night with the significant other and a few friends, and I gotta say, it's definitely a place worth checking out. Atmosphere and food are great.
