    I'm jealous, wish I could be there. I'm hoping alot of you are able to come out to the Boston event whenever it takes place. Hell, I'm hoping I'm able to make that one too.

    Thank you to Jack's Abby, Marshall Wharf, The Tavern in Framingham, Left Hand, CBC, Tree House, Brash, Clown Shoes, John Harvard's, Stone, Oxbow, Wormtown, Battle Road, Sixpoint, Tuckerman's, Enlightenment, Allagash, Night Shift, Idle Hands, Maine Beer Co., and Cape Ann.

    Tonight was awesome.

    Special thanks to anyone that donated bottles, gift certificates, or tickets. 26 (.2) packages raffled off, and I think at least half of them had a Cantillon bottle in there?

    Sounds like it was an awesome event for an awesome cause, I wish I could've attended. Huge respect to all the breweries that attended and of course to Jack's Abby for coordinating it and making it happen. You guys never cease to amaze me. I'll see you guys on Friday!

    Marshall Wharf Cant Dog IPA was great, my girlfriend loved the CBC Cherry Wood Smoked Amber Ale, Tree House Impy Stout, Oxbow Farmhouse Pale, Jack's Abby had a few things pouring. The bottle donations for raffles were awesome: a bunch of Cantillon, Russian River sours, Heady Topper, KBS, Night Shift Berlinner Weisse's, etc.

    (In the first picture above, you can see people looking in the window. By the time they started the raffle, there was a pretty big crowd outside. Many of the people outside bought raffle tickets, even though they couldn't even get in to the event. #GoodVibes)

    What an awesome night. Marshall wharf IPA was fantastic. I wish the Lunch and Mo lasted longer but at $5/ea, it doesn't shock me they were out before 7pm.

    Sounds like people weren't all able to get in. What time was it at capacity?

    I wanted to be there but couldn't get out of plans to to see my sister to celebrate my engagement to my lady over the weekend.

  26. jmichiel

    jmichiel Initiate (0) Mar 1, 2006 Massachusetts

    I think everyone was eventually able to get in. Capacity was 150. With 20+ brewers, that's about 7.5 drinkers for every brewery. My kinda math...

    Echoing what has already been said, it was an excellent event. The Tavern was jammed showing tremendous support for the cause. Didn't try too many beers, but thoroughly enjoyed the Tree House Imp Stout and the Marshall Wharf pale ale.

    Sorry didn't give any details last night, I was exhausted by the time I got home. So they split all the bottles and gift cards up into I think what was 26 separate prizes (for 26 miles of the marathon), am I correct?

    Dean from Tree House was the highlight for me. I want him to be my drinking buddy. I also met some BA folks and Norm for the first time.

    The whole bar observed the moment of silence with the Bruins and then we all sang the Star Spangled Banner with the crowd there, really nice.

    I agree great event, especially considering how quickly it came together. Beer highlights for me were Treehouse Space and Time (Imp Stout) and Marshall Wharf Cant Dog. Also catching up with Dean from Treehouse (who was raving about their new Curiosity #2) and meeting Dave from Marshall Wharf. I also had the Mahr's, which was a bit sweet for my taste.

    For anyone looking to get some Marshall Wharf, they only distribute to a select list of stores Maine. They have a list of the stores they distribute to at It also looks like you can visit their brewery, however I couldn't find any info regarding when they are open to the public.

    Thanks to everyone who came out last night, to all the brewers that donated beer and to The Framingham Tavern and Jack's Abby for putting the whole thing together. It's really inspiring to see so many people who were ready to give whatever they could and do whatever they could to help and I think it reflects the great spirit of community within the craft beer world. Thanks again to everyone!

    Three Tides is the bar that features Marshall Wharf beers, David owns both the bar and Marshall Wharf. I hear it is a great place to visit, I'll be up there in August, can't wait.

    What an awesome event. Kudos to every brewery who participated and to Marshall Wharf and Jacks Abby for leading the charge. I cannot wait to hear how much money was raised for the victims. I was happy to contribute some of the cellar for this and hopefully someone is able to enjoy the hopslam, worldwide stout, black xantus, bells third coast ale, and stone epic 2009

    I ended up winning a Cantillon St. Lamvicus, Mystic Entropy, Nightshift Wild Queens, and $25 gift card to Bermans.

    I still cannot believe the outpouring of support we received for this event. The event was thrown together in less than 24 hours and we managed to get 25 breweries to donate beer and received enough donations from businesses and you guys to put together a truly impressive raffle. I think it is safe to say that last night was also the first time there was ever a line outside The Tavern, I hope no one had to wait too long. We will be putting together a more formal thank you soon, as so many people stepped up last night.

    After all was said and done we raised over $8,800 last night.
