    Figured I'd start a new thread to start the new year. Always around to answer questions. Some fun releases coming up in the next few months, including a few classics that haven't been released in awhile...

    I love your stuff!

    Are you guys officially distributing in Massachusetts or is it just random creep that I am occasionally seeing? If not, are there plans to do so?

    Just floating a tiny bit up to MA now and then. Hopefully in the future we will have additional volume to send more.

    Likely will see some events in MA around EBF.

    Are you guys going to keep brewing supernaut for distribution? My local packy (in Cheshire) hasn't had any since around thanksgiving after having it constantly since you started distributing.

    We are. Sent out 90bbl worth last week In cans and draft. More next week. Keeping up with Sea Hag demand sometimes means the Supernaut batches end up a little further apart. It's our goal to up the Supernaut distro in the future.

    Hopefully “classics” include Three Judges, Attempted Redrum and most importantly, Fancy Pants!

    New Kewl Beans coffee stout = delicious
    Brand New Tickle Party IPA = pretty damn delicious. Tropical juicy fruit, without crossing into that coconut suntan lotion territory. Goes down easy at only 5.8%. Cans available too.

    I'm really thrilled with Kewl Beans this year. Tickle Party, IMO, does a good job of showing hints of a NEIPA, but still with good supporting bitterness. Excited to have a new IPA in the lineup that showcases Motueka. I was surprised by the strong pineapple aroma of the beer - almost like freeze dried pineapple.

    Attempted RedRum (rum barrel-aged Barleywine) bottles this weekend (on draft as well). The barrels that we sourced are from Antigua and have much less spice than the barrels that were used in the past (likely Jamaican, as 9 out of 10 times that's what is available). The final product leans towards Molasses, Brown Sugar, Dark Fruit, Rum Cake, and isn't as hot as past releases, again, IMO. Spent over a year in the barrels, and it really softened the bitterness of the American Barleywine base as well.

    Feb Supernaut cans are delicious; so nice to slug down a hoppy beer rather than choke on the haze.

    Quoted for the truth. Spin Cycle 24 has been drinking like a champ as well. I hope they give that one a name.

    The latest batch of Super Supernaut is amazing! Probably my favorite DIPA you guys put out. I also really liked Tickle Party, Hoppy Pilsner, and Mrs. Cooke's Kolsch.

    I finally cracked a bottle of Malice, it's tasty. Nice job by @Gmr75 & the crew. I hope that you & everyone else at NEBCO are doing as best as possible during a difficult time for small breweries.

    (and a lot of other industries of course)

    you know what... I never did, I will have to go back into the cellar and do that soon, I will be glad t share notes with you once its open...May as well do it tonight actually. I probably post in the cellar reviews thread and can share it back to this thread too.

    My notes when fresher review say the beer was kind of hot and boozy, hopefully all this time has mellowed it a bit.

    Doing my best to support through these times. I usually have a Sea Hag on tap, but with allocation to bars lifted, I put on a Fuzzy three weeks ago and clobbered it. So good. Now I have Supernaut on one side and Hoppy Pilsner on the other. Great tag team. That’s actually a photo of Sea Hag in my avatar.

    Sea Hag handle because that's what is usually here, the Elm City is a relic that I need to get some new line card stickers for.

    Thanks! Just a pilot batch, but always good to hear positive feedback. Certainly potential for it to be scaled up (we'd prob have to change the name...).

    Even with a 1 case limit, sell outs basically on pre-order for Super Super (realize first time canned) and BFD? Baffling. All of their cans have been lasting several days for a while. Walk up, multiple case allotments, no wait, chuck in car, go back in for a few pours and maybe fills. What gives? FOMO? Sure to get brews? Boredom? Hardly bitching; I have had WAY more that my fair share of each in the past but honestly puzzled.
     
  32. EDNOSE

    EDNOSE Aspirant (226) Oct 27, 2007 Connecticut

    I could be wrong but I thought this was the first Super Supernaut canning (if not, it's rare) so that didn't surprise me, as much as Double Fuzz going quickly which took days last time.

    In any event, good for NEBCO!

    Wait, there was a stealth Super Supernaut can release? I didn't see anything on their Instagram. Oh well there's always next time.

    What does the can art look like?

    The release is this weekend and it doesn't go up on the website until day of...unless there is some type of secret preorder system I am unaware of.

    Looks like Coriolis is being sent out into the wild. As a self-proclaimed Nelson hunter, I'm pretty stoked.

    I was happy to hear that my local distributor has Sea Hag kegs back in stock, hoping it is fresh new production and not older stuff coming back. Picking it up tomorrow, so time will tell. So far in quarantine we have done Fuzzy, Supernaut, Hoppy Pils and we are coming back to our standard house beer Sea Hag. Also have a Counterweight Headway on right now.

    I have not done a keg in forever. Probably should with being home so much. Hap the tap handles on my fridge and CO2 tank filled collecting dust...

    Initially the only positive of the pandemic was that kegs on allocation to bars and restaurants were released to general distribution, but then quickly after that breweries stopped filling kegs all together and started to focus all their efforts on cans and bottles. I'm hoping tomorrow's keg is the first of starting to fill kegs again.
