I plan to be in Portland on a Sunday, are cans of Substance typically available then?
Sometimes, but not this Sunday with the last swish release happening on Saturday.
Bissell banned dogs permenantly. May 1
Even better are the posts from people saying ban the kids and the dogs.
Fuck the people posting about the kids. None would have the hangers to ever say something to their face.
Keep the poochies home though.
I'm sure another certain big MA brewery is next
Suarez just announced a ban on dogs as well.
The hits keep a comin
Where all the anti-dogs people at? Figured there would be a party up in here by now
Go to their page and see comments.
is there a buttered popcorn beer, because i'd love to drink that while reading all the comments...or maybe i'll just make some regular popcorn
How's a typical Friday at BB when only Substance is available? Is it craziness or can I just show up in the afternoon and pick up some beer easily?
Does anyone know if the expansion is in the warehouse across the driveway or in their current location?
Looks like they ripped out the bar in their taproom but I'm hoping they bought the building next to the dirt parking lot and have plans for that building too
Bissell pouring at Row 34 Sunday morning. Enjoy the lines
Almost certainly a case of a few people spoiling for the rest of us.
I go to Row 34 often, including events, and have never waited in a line. I can't imagine waiting in line for anything short of a Cantillon event since world class beer can be bought 30 feet away at Trillium with no wait.
Other half event was a shit show. Lines and all the beer kicked in 45 minutes.
Might be a bit better for this event according to the article...
'While reservations are filling up fast since the restaurant announced the event last week, “I don’t anticipate running out of beer quite as quickly as we have for other events since Bissell was generous,” Hays says. “However, I do believe the turnout will be pretty epic!”'
Any idea how late one can show up today and still get cans?
Hard to say with the MBC Dinner release. I'd err on the early side.
Anyone head into Boston? How is it?
It was a good event. I gotta few pours of the maple angel with filthy souls. Swish and industry vs inferiority kicked at 12.
I strolled in there around 1:45 and Substance, Lux, BA Umbra, and Angel was left. My brother and roommate got a Substance, and I got a Lux. After we finished those, only the two dark beers were left, so I tried the Angel.
If I had had my crap together and got there earlier I could have tried more of their beers, so basically, not really a shit show. It was packed, but there was no line. They even opened up the back area to hang out in (no one was there though because there were no TVs and the Celtics were on).
That was good enough for me though. I had Swish/Inferiority on draft a few weeks ago at Bissell, Substance last week on draft in Portland, and I have Swish in my fridge. Never tried Lux, solid beer!
According to row's site angels and ba umbra are still both on. Maple angels is really sweet, but it's very good.
heard good things about the BA
Damn, have a trip to the area in earlyish June. I'm really hoping that I'll be able to grab something
If you'll be in the area for a few days you'll definitely be able to grab cans of Substance at the very least.
That would be nice. Only been once before. Little did I know at the time it was the initial nothing gold release. Just missed out on substance. I managed to grab a pint and loved it.
What is everyone's thoughts on Nothing Gold? With Swish season behind us do these releases sell out in a similar fashion?
I would imagine, especially the first. I don't think they do double batches either.. could be wrong on that part though..
Last year it was slightly less hyped than Swish, although I think it's better! Either way, it's definitely their most popular release of the summer season
Hey guys, Ill be there on Memorial Day Friday and Saturday. What are the odds theyll be open?
Their facebook says TBD. Im scared ill be in town and wont get to try the one brewery Im most excited about.
Yes, there is. Shipyard.
Bissell is available in many Portland bars and restaurants. Even if the BB taproom is closed you'll be able to drink some of their beer.
Amazing how many people did not give a poo about having dogs in the brewery yesterday. Considering many of them knew exactly what they were there for, what to do, and speaking about other releases there is no way they didn't know. People can literally suck.
The lines were in waves at open which was fun to watch from up top. You could time when you wanted to grab a pour.
The maple porter is some damn good stuff. Anyone know when subby finally ran out on Saturday? They still had plenty when we left.
What are you taking about?
People "knew what to do" in regards to what?
From looking on their website I wasn't able to tell, what type of limits do they usually have? And do they tweet when they sell out or anything? I've got to drive to northern Maine for work and I'm thinking about hitting Bissell on the way home.
Usually 3 4-packs of each variety that is available. If you are talking about going today, my guess since its reciprocal it will sell out by early to mid afternoon
Exactly what I said. They knew they were getting into line(before open) to get cans of Lux and Substance. Don't shit me that the guy I overheard talking about living locally, who had his mutt with him at opening, did not know he couldn't bring it.
They sold out of reciprocal at 1330 don't know about substance. Quick sellout on a Wednesday IMO. you could have walked out with a full case.. 3-4pk of each.
Yea i was pretty disappointed there wasn't anything left when i passed through Portland late afternoon.
Anyone know around what time I should get Nothing Gold cans on 6/10 if I show up around 9 AM? Almost right at 10 or shortly thereafter within the realm of possibility? Gotta get to an event later that morning.
