“Consolation pours” is the best...”world-class saisons” is pretty good too.
Surprised to see Damon popping up again so soon. Not that I’m complaining or anything...
So I never really tried any HF beers outside of an Amarillo IPA I got randomly in a trade. I started trading with a guy who can get HF pretty regularly and he offered to get me anything they have whenever he goes. He's going this week for the Damon release and I'm planning on asking him to get me S&S4 and Double Nelson. I've never really gotten into Saisons/Farmhouse Ale's but I'd like to go through all that HF has to offer. I'm planning on asking for 2-3 bottles from the retail shop. What do you guys think is a good starting point?
Anna, Arthur, and Florence are musts IMO. BroSo, Convivial and Nordic are all great as well. But if you're limiting yourself to 3 bottles, I'd suggest Anna, Arthur, and Florence.
I agree with the above suggestion.
I know there's no way to know but guessing at 3pp Damon is expected to last more than a day?
Yes, it should absolutely last more than 1 day. Most 3pp limit beers last into the next week, although sometimes limits get reduced based on larger than anticipated turnout on the first day of sales.
My own personal preference, I'd tag on Nordic Saison to that lineup. It's def one of the more underrated/complex beers they make for $12 a 750ml.
If you’re to pick one it would be Arthur, all day every day.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, even if it's wrong.
Florence is the correct answer.
I agree, Dave. Anna is the correct answer.
Unsurprisingly Anna is my highest rated HF saison as well.
Does HF close their doors at 5pm if there is a line? I am just curious, as I am debating making a trip up tomorrow, but wouldn't likely get there until about 5pm. More specifically, if I get there at 4:50 and there is a line, will I be out of luck, or is it be there by 5pm and you will be able to buy beer. Thanks
I actually came here to post the same exact question! Anyone?
As long as you’re in the doors by 5pm then you’re good to go. As far as a line that may push one outside of that timeslot upon arriving, then would give them a call ahead of time
Thanks-I saw their FAQ online which basically states what you have written, I just am not sure if they will turn away people. My only real experience with lines and closing time is at Tree House which serves people as long as they are inline by closing time.
Don’t think you should run into any issues near closing, as the line formation tends to prefer the opening hours; nonetheless, certainly don’t want to be at fault for providing poor info, so a call might be more suitable
If you don’t make it into the line before it closes, there’s the consolation line that you can wait in.
Is that the line where if I stand on my tip toes I might see barrels of beer that I will never be able to try because they will sell out before I can get them?
Thanks- and I appreciate the advice.
Cask-conditioned Earl via “Worka Sakaro coffee from George Howell and vanilla beans” reads lovely
Based on today’s crowd, I’m really looking forward to the latest entry from the “bait and switch” guy.
Thank you to everyone who came out for Wednesday's release. The turnout was amazing. In the interest of ensuring that these bottles are available for as many people as possible, we are going to adjust the limit to 2 bottles per person. Thanks for everyone's patience and good natures today, and we hope to see more of you tomorrow and beyond.
I skipped today's Damon release. I had a case of FoBS (Fear of Bait and Switch).
I am currently enjoying a consolation pour of Damon: FBV.
Hi everyone, finally going to get up to HF tomorrow!
I'm a bit confused about what is offered for on site consumption. Their website seems to indicate that they have more options for growler fills than they do for drinking there. Is that the case? What about what is listed as "currently on tap"?
Thanks for any and all clarifications!
Wow, they got hit harder than they may have expected this week...
The drinking there link in your post above is what you can get 25cl pours of at the brewery. They don't do pours of everything available for growlers. They don't do pours of the double IPA's typically.
Thanks - that's really good to know.
climate, crowd and rate of crowd movement during yesterdays release has me second guessing a return for a big release again (more for y'all). great time, don't get me wrong, but for those that got there after 12 pm yesterday......that must have been a cold long wait. especially for those in shorts.
I know we're talking about craft beer here (the sole reason shorts still come equipped with cargo pockets), but that's on you if you wear shorts to northern VT in late October.
Literally 10 people here now, Thursday at 4. Limit down to 2, but zero hassle.
Sometimes they add a few options to what is posted on website.
This is today
They made ~20 CD15 mags available to go yesterday. At $150 a piece too...sold out just in front of me.
Fun fact. The guy that got the last 2 CD15 magnums paid his mom 100 bucks to go with him for Damon. They also got there at 930 lined up behind us then jumped the line way to the front.
Yep, and maybe less than 5 people passed on them.
I thought they were CD18 mags? Must of heard wrong. Aaron b2 on draft was so good. I had batch 3 pretty fresh and thought is was way too sweet and boozy. Age really transforms that beer.
noted. tough for me to have known they’ll carry over....yep fomo
Totally understandable, I was surprised it was this mellow today.
