I know people that still have last year's BA Framinghammer in growlers.
Glad you liked that Hoponius!
I think BA Saxonator was only like $14 or something for the fill, so I'm guessing it will be along those lines.
I would also tend to agree that people should not be going in the hopes of acquiring sweet trade bait, or they may be disappointed.
I'm sure there will be others on tap for growlers and bottles as well. I think they're just highlighting some treats.
I would love to try some Sour time, but I'll be up north in Vermont during the release. If anybody would be interested in an in-person trade I'll happily give some Heady Topper for a couple bottles. Please BM me if interested, I'm in Waltham.
Anybody headed out there Thursday or Friday that would be willing to let me ride along? I will probably only want four bottles, so if you want the other two I'd be happy to accommodate.
Hey guys, does anyone know if the tasting room is cash only? Hoping there is some left after I get out of work!
They take plastic
do they take only jacks' abby growlers, or can I bring others?
MA law, only JA growlers.
JA growlers only, because it's a deposit rather than a purchase.
And only $3, if I remember right!
is it any good? lol
Shoot! Looks like I won't be able to make it. If anybody going from Watertown/Newton/Waltham/Belmont/Allston/Brighton/Arlington/Lexington area and is not planning to buy full allocation, I would really appreciate getting some for me. I will either buy you something of equivalent or simply pay you. Thanks in advance.
P.S. What's the traffic like around 6:00 PM on Mass Pike West?
Unless they were counter pressure filled, there's absolutely no way they are still good. A well poured and CO2 purged growler might give you a month, and that is really pushing it. A less than perfectly filled one won't give you more than a week or two.
Counter pressure filled is theoretically no different than bottling, and can last forever. But it's more time consuming, so not often done.
Sour Time is pretty good. Wish it had pedio in it
$8 for 500ml
I didn't get an itemized receipt, but my 6 bottles, cooler bag, new growler, and a fill of Hoponius came to $61.
It was $8 per bottle
Thanks--about what I was expecting for JA prices adjusted for storing/funking a beer for a year.
Anyone going to BBC Framingham tonight for the Anniversary party?
Don't know, still in the growler
Haha good point, but what is his thinking behind saving it? Any experiences with similar attempts?
He said he doesn't have a good answer
Where there big crowds at the brewery today? I'm wondering if any will survive until Saturday morning.
Good crowd when I was there this afternoon, 3ish. There were plenty of cases on the floor, at least 10+. I believe they made 40 cases of it, 20 for sale at the brewery and 20 for somewhere else that I can't recall. With the 6 bottle limit I think you'll be good. Reach out to JA to gauge how much is left before you head there.
Thanks. I'm headed that direction on Saturday, so I'll probably aim to get there right when it opens. I'll just get some growler fills if the sours are sold out.
You're welcome. Can't go wrong there either. Great stuff on tap now: 2nd anni, coffee S & D, to name a couple. I went with a growler of my favorite beer from them, Hoponius Union.
Jack's Abby is so absurd. That costs you 100 bucks most places.
A growler of MBC Lunch might set you back $100...
Grabbed 6 bottles today. 1 already gone. Nice bretty aroma. Restrained tart level. Nice wine notes. Very crisp and refreshing. Could easily polish off a couples bottles on a hot evening like this.
I wonder if this will get a little more funk with some cellar time.
For those that don't like sours, I would definitely check this one out because it is a very approachable sour. Really nice sour up front, then falls off but lemon citrus takes over so the sourness is not over powering, lets the other flavors come through, really nice.
They don't know if the supply will last till Saturday because Friday is a busy day for them so if you really really want it, make sure to get there on Friday, no promises on Saturday.
The price points basically make no sense.
I like what I am hearing so far. Can't wait to grab some.
How would you judge it for the style, as a sour beer, not just "sour intro"? I'm not sure where to put it style-wise though... "sorta Berliner Weisse"? Basically, if you were to recommend it to someone who is looking for a sour beer/Berliner Weisse?
I was probably the last person there yesterday, and there was still 2+ cases on the floor. If Friday ends up being busier I can't imagine much if any will be left for Saturday.
They said 20 cases at the brewery Thursday and the other 20 available at the brewery Friday.
I stand corrected. Thanks for the updates, jomobono and lucas. Based on that latest info and probability of a busy Friday, it doesn't sound like there will be any remaining Saturday. One never knows though so good luck to those holding out hope for bottles on Saturday.
Thanks for the info everyone. If anyone goes today (especially past 6pm), can you post an update?
Yeah, it is close to a berliner weisse in that it has the "acidic, with a lemony-citric fruit sharpness" but this particular beer is not very tart. The Blue Lobster Hamptonweisse- now that was all tart.
I consider myself a novice sour drinker and yes very approachable but still has the classic characteristics. Drank it with some buddies who are big time sour drinkers and they loved it. JA hit it outta the park again. Wish they made more! After tasting had no problem dropping $8 very solid beer
I'm heading up there this afternoon, getting there around 530, anyone know what the crowd was like yesterday around that time?
