    They said juicy will probably last until Saturday morning but maybe not the whole day.

    If anyone could be a pal that's going today and could update on juicy I'd appreciate it. On a work trip in Killington and looking to make the drive but not getting there til after 1...don't want to waste a day in the car if it's a 3 hour wait and good stuffs gone

    If you call HF when they open they are usually pretty good at estimating if it will last.

    Definitely wouldn't be a 3 hour wait either.

    They dropped the limit to 3 to ensure everyone in line @ open got some. So, good luck, but chances are slim

    ...Great move by HF btw

    Bottle Releases For The Week Of Jan. 13, 2016
    [​IMG]SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 2016 AT 4:00PM
    On Weds., January 13, 2016, we're excited to release two new beers during normal retail hours:

    Works of Love: Anchorage Brewing

    A farmstead ale fermented in oak tanks, this beer was brewed in collaboration with our friend Gabe Fletcher of Anchorage Brewing Co. using barley, organic Vermont wheat, organic Vermont oats, fresh apples from Fletcher Orchard, hops, yeast and our well water.

    $15 per bottle. 2 bottles per person. 375ml.

    Madness & Civilization #5

    Madness & Civilization is a panorama of our barrel aging program—oak-aged beers that emerge from their individual silences to find structure and voice as a unified composition. This is the result of an unpredictable state of permanent happenstance—a dialogue with our evolving approach to blending that challenges convention and circumstance. Each release will include multiple threads and is likely to approximate the style of an imperial stout.

    Release #5: A blend of Aaron, Everett, and Works of Love: De Molen, all aged in bourbon barrels for more than 2 years.

    $20 per bottles, 2 bottles per person. 500ml.

    I was hoping to get some Satrurday so this made me sad too (yeah I know first world problems) so I reached out and asked the brewer. He says this is going to be one of their core beers and will be brewed again. I still would have liked to try it this time even to giving up one of the pomuelo which I enjoyed a lot. but it seems this will be around again and hopefully soon.

    Debating just moving up there. Would save so much time, effort, and the decision of going up week after week.

    Had a WoL Anchorage while up there yesterday. Absolutely fantastic. So light and delicate, with a great crisp apple that comes through.

    Any indication whether WOL and M&C will lay through the week.

    My guess would be yes. It was quiet up there yesterday, and they said it was really quiet Wednesday and Thursday also.

    Do they still do tastings? Is it easy or do you feel like its inconveniencing the staff? With the insane growler fill line, I just assume its a hassle for them, but I won't have time for growler fills.

    They have staff dedicated to bottle pours/draft pours, that said "James" and "Of First and Last Things" added to the draft list

    James: Black Ale brewed with American hops, German and American malted Barley. 6.4% abv

    Of first and Last Things: American IPA. 6.5% abv

    The new setup is amazing and super efficient. The wait for both tastings/onsite bottles and growlers is the fastest it's been.

    Someone asked about the hops on Twitter and Shaun mentioned it had Simcoe, Amarillo, Mosaic, Nelson, and Citra.

    Was given a full 2L growler of Of First and Last things that went untouched at my brothers wedding (too much amazing beer to drink it all) and it is quite tastey. Nectarine, peach, must on the nose with grapefruit on the backend. Quite creamy!

    Quiet in here lately.

    Anyone care to wildly speculate as to what might be coming next week? They've been releasing monster beers over the last two months (Flora, two different LoG, Elaborative 3, Juicy, M&C5, WoL, Flo, CD16) so a week without one (or two) just builds anticipation.

    Ann should be sometime soon, based on recent comments from Shaun, iirc. Anything else people are waiting on?

    Shaun posted several months ago that he had Fear & Trembling in barrels. Not sure if or when that is going to be released.

    Did you hear that from the team up at HF? That would be the first time it wasn't released for retail... but then again, the first time they released it with the tasting room on site.

    Fear & Trembling was available in November. Is this a follow-up batch to the one that was just out?

    That was the regular version. He said he had some in barrels, i.e. barrel-aged version(s). Don't know if he's using various types of barrels similar to the original BA F&T release.

    Assuming this is the case, I wonder if the decision was made in direct response to the muling / reselling that has spiked in occurrence recently. Certainly one way to keep highly sought after beer in the hands of people who will actually enjoy it rather than just look to turn a profit!
