    @AutumnBeerLove - Are the balloon glasses coming back any time soon? The one I have has a raised / sharp edge along the length of the stem. I've actually cut myself on it. Really want to replace it.

    No. And what you just described is why they were discontinued in the first place. They changed manufacturers and the quality went down the pooper.

    Onsite list is ridiculous. Also, didn't realize Double Nelson was added

    Quite possibly one of the most chill days ever. Zero lines, amazing beers, and grabbed everything I was hoping for. Art plum and DBD were killer. Also, shoutout to the guy that shared his magnum of CD15 with the room, thanks again for the hospitality!

    At about 4 yesterday it looked like a little over a pallet and a half.

    Arrived just after 3 on Thursday. Grabbed our bottles quick and then went into the taproom where ZERO line greeted us. Grabbed a DB Damon and decided on our growlers. Art Plum as the encore, plus some sharing with others in between. An outstanding time. Anyone crack a tequila Soigne yet?

    Yeah, it's killer, barrel is noticeable and pushes it to another level.

    I have a rather random question about Hill Farmtead beer. Anna, Arthur, Florence etc are labeled as ales. Then they have their counterparts that are barrel aged. Do the core beers sit in foeders before they are bottled? And then the "evolved" versions sit in more specialty barrels? Or do the core beers go from steel vat to bottle?

    As I sit here drinking an Anna it dawned on me that arthur/anna are my favorite beers in the world and I have no idea what goes behind their creation, or what they'd even be classified as.

    I'd classify them as awesome, but to your more technical question I'll defer to those with more knowledge.
    I had a Florence on tap last night at the Three Penny Taproom BA Throw Down and had forgotten how delicious it was. Near perfection of flavor, mouthfeel and complexity.

    Well Anna sits in Foeder and goes in wine barrels to become Ann, that much I know... As for Arthur I think it's stainless but I would quote me on that and goes in wine barrels to become Art

    @AutumnBeerLove ?

    I'm almost positive that all the core saisons see time in a Foeder.

    Believe this is correct - there was a batch of Florence done in stainless in July '15 if I recall correctly. Also, don't quote me, but one/both of the dry-hopped Arthurs were stainless as well I think?

    Other than that, I don't think any of them are 100% stainless. They're all 100% delicious though.

    The first dry hopped Arthur was stainless (and with Styrian Goldings), for sure. I was under the impression that the Cascade dry-hopped version did see time in a Foeder. It at least was not labeled or described as stainless. (The Styrian Goldings version was labeled as stainless.)
