    I have no idea how Veruca made its way to Boston but in no way am I upset about it. Looks like I'm going to work with 4 beers in me Wednesday night.

    Pay as you go ... they are doing 12oz and 16oz pours depending on the beer.

    Can't wait. I've never had the opportunity to have more than a few ounces of Funky Buddha at a time.

    Same here ... I can't sample much at our own fests so tomorrow is much needed.

    I got to move many of these extra kegs to the keg area cleaning up after EBF. I'll gladly contribute some stomach space for this. And some charity $$ ;)

    They posted on facebook they have multiple kegs of most of them. Hopefully helps it not be a shitshow.

    hopefully this means that people don't feel they have to be there right at 4:30 drinking like there is no tomorrow.

    Curious what others think of straight jacket...particularly those who have had before.

    Well that was the shit! Schnozzberries was awesome, and old fashioned was fantastic. Paid off being first in line, never had the option before to sit my beer ass anywhere I wanted ha

    Got to Hobo around 6:30, it was packed but the bartenders kept right up with the crowd. No Crusts, Last Snow & Veruca Snozzberry were unreal. Thanks for a great event to break up the week, Lord Hobo!!

    Heh. Maybe it's just me. I've always loved it but thought it really sucked yesterday. Weird tart/fruity tastevand aroma. I wasn't even certain it was straight jacket. I think I had one of, if not the, first pours and wondered if it was a dirty line but I think they do their stuff right there. Either way, I was really bummed by it.
