    tasty tasty tasty.

    Just grabbed a 4pk of their Birds of a Feather NEIPA. Lovely juicy hazy, everything you could ask for.
    Had their double last night. Don't recall the name but it was excellent too. More a traditional double IPA, less hazy but still a bit of the juice and a nice hop bite.

    anyone tried theirs? Anything else I should look out for?

    I haven't had all their offerings but Jackalope has been my favorite. juicy with fruity melon, cantaloupe, and bubblegum flavor. I wasn't that high in their sours and Brett beers, but I'm sure they will improve.

    Cheers. They had a sour in the store but I wasn't in the mood.

    I think I had Stardust before also. Was a decent IPA.

    Just had a Singlecut Are You Ready Steve after the Birds.

    Birds wins. Hands down

    The double is So Much For Subtlety.

    We stomped all over Jackalope Brewing Co.'s trademark with ... Jackalope - some bonehead (me) responsible for googling potential names forgot to do his job - so it is being re-released under the name Rabbit Rabbit a week from Monday.

    Really glad you're enjoying and thanks for the kind words !

    Really like the beers I have had from this brewery as well. Has gone on my "will try a 4 pack of any of them" brewery list along with Exhibit A

    I'm looking forward to the next batch of Pressure Drop. Probably my favorite ~5%'er pale ale of the last year.

    Look forward to heading that way myself in the next few weeks.

    Love the distribution map on the website. Helped me find a wee liquor store near me with a decent selection. Of course, I grabbed another couple of 4pks of Birds so as i can share the love

    These guys are really dialed in right now. Their beer is really fantastic. I've enjoyed everything that I've had from them over the past couple of months.

    had the porter this week, (werewolves of cambridge - great name & label), and had a fruity IPA a few months back.

    I really like them & Exhibit A. good availability, reasonable price, and creative brewing. seems like even the 'standards' have some unique flavor or ingredient in them.

    Visited for the 1st time last week and was impressed. Lively, well-run place with friendly servers (a big plus for Camberville). Liked the local jerky maker and chocolatier selling/handing out samples on site. I'd go more often, but area is a real pain to park in as a non-resident of the area.

    Would grab a 4-pack of any of their hoppy beers if/when I come across. Good luck to this place.

    I'm loving yesterday's batch of Rabbit Rabbit (née Jackalope).

    If you told me I was drinking HF Society & Solitude #10 I wouldn't doubt you for a second.

    At $15/4-pack it's a steal.

    You'll be hearing from the attorneys for Rabbit Rabbit in the morning.

    Songs are OK - different categories. Lots of our beers are named after songs :slight_smile:

    Just grabbed a 4 of Rabbit Rabbit. Really quite good. Little hot on the alcohol which leaves a bit of an aftertaste. . Reminds me of jigsaw jazz of which you get more for less. But still, very impressed with what they're doing

    Mosaic hopped so much for subtlety. Man this is a good beer. Rides that perfect line between juicy, tropical and hoppy.
