    YES. I'm gonna be fairly heartbroken if this one gets retired when Ryan leaves, one of my absolute favorite beers of all time.

    The beer was first done before he started at HF, so I don't see why it would end once he's gone.
    I guess ya never know.

    Also, it's a personal favorite of mine too.

    Has anyone heard anything about Mary being bottle conditioned this summer? I thought Shaun was considering selling it by the case in the future?

    @AutumnBeerLove registering for FOFA, this year there is $17.00 of service fees and $3 of delivery. Previous years there was no service fee or delivery charge, so there has been a change of policy? I am not complaining happy to pay these fees if I can.

    For anyone lucky enough to land tickets to FOFA this year and struggling to find a DD, I'd recommend looking into renting a shuttle or school bus. A 53-passenger bus is around $70/hr from the vendors I've researched for my wedding in VT this fall, which would work out to be roughly $500 round trip, 10:30am pickup in Montpelier, 5:30pm drop off. Assuming full capacity, $10 per head is a bargain.

    They also have 28-passenger bus options, but I'm not sure if the price would change.

    Will there be any official anniversary celebration going on this year? It has become one of my favorite annual traditions, and I'm heading up with some friends for the weekend (26-27th) regardless. I just talked up all the previous anniversaries to them and they keep asking me if I've heard what's going on this year! haha! No matter what I know it will be a wonderful weekend! =)

    My wife and I will be at Hill for our first time this Saturday the 20th for my birthday. What are the chances that Flora will still be available and GoM as well? Thank you.

    @SadMachine Planning a mellow week of celebration with special vintage draft offerings and a vintage on-site bottle selection. No tickets required, all pours will be priced la carte. Should be a wonderful time!

    @remainincognito Good chance that GoM will be available, and Flora may make it through open on Saturday as well...

    Hi, thanks for the info! Will the a la carte pours be served like the daily 25cl pours with a 2 limit? Or smaller pours like the flights offered last year (allowing for sampling of multiple options)?
    I'll be happy either way!
     
  30. mike_v_sardina

    mike_v_sardina Initiate (50) Apr 12, 2012 Vermont

    @jhavs We will definitely be offering smaller pour sizes so that you can taste more than just two beers, we just won't be offering the beers together as a flight. You can individually select the beers of the menu that you'd like to enjoy...

    It's killer, they were offering a glass of it today as people were walking in. Wish it was on for growlers.

    @mike_v_sardina or @AutumnBeerLove any idea if S&S 9 will last until next Friday? It's one of the two in the series that I haven't had, so I'm hoping it will make it, but if not I may try to trade for a growler. Thanks!

    Unfortunately doubtful, as Society & Solitude #9 will likely kick tomorrow or early next week.

    Okay- this is a longshot, I know, so feel free to tell me to shut up and wait. I will be coming to Mecca in July and I can't hardly contain my excitement. I'm an HF fanboy (because it's the best).

    With that said, I know on-site offerings are random, but as far as releases and upcoming beers go, is there any info as to what might be making appearances in July? I'm not sure if there is a seasonal aspect as to what is released when and understand the spontaneous nature of the process...

    Either way, any info is appreciated. Thanks and cheers!

    Great to hear that you will be visiting Greensboro! Won't have a good idea as to releases for July until, honestly, July. I can tell you that there will be plenty of great beers to choose from, regardless of what exactly those might be.

    Thanks Mike! Totally understand! I wanted to get there for VT Brewers Fest, but I will be there the week prior. Sounded like the week of, things shift focus at HF towards that a bit, so I'll be going before that event takes place- fingers crossed there will be some goodies to take home :slight_smile:

    Thanks again for the response and cheers!

    Anything to the new batch of Dot being labeled as "Aged in Oak Barrels" instead of "Aged in Wine Barrels"?

    Regardless, heading up sometime in the next couple weeks so hoping it lasts! Definitely a favorite from last year.
