    Greenpoint Beer & Ale there too (obviously). Nice spot to hangout.

    You might also want to check out Greenpoint brewing and Interboro. Plus doesn't Threes have another location in Greenpoint now?

    WHAT... I'm an idiot. I could have easily knocked out Interboro/Greenpoint/Three's THAT way.

    Good to know for my next trip.

    Just picked up a 6 of this yesterday. I haven't had a whole lot of Threes yet but this is by far my favorite I've tasted. Delicious single with great juicy aroma (mosaic maybe?) to match. Only $16 for a 6 pack at the bottle shop. The one can of Greenpoint Instant Cred that I got there was $8... I'd say this is the better buy. Go get some!

    Completely agree. I got a 6 pack also, and wish I got more. Super crushable.

    Stopped by for the first time today. Not only did I really enjoy the Threes beers I tried on tap, but I was able to pick up a nice selection of beers in the bottleshop not available to me in Jersey. Very pleased with my adventure today.

    My Brooklyn excursions are awesome, with the exception of the $29 bridge tolls. But hey, every 2-3 months is worth it.

    Especially when I could grab Double Daisy Cutter which would cost me close enough to that for shipping to trade with someone

    True. But I like to stock up on OH, Threes (plus their bottle shop stuff), Interboro and Greenpoint every few months. Otherwise Kane, Carton and other NJ beers do just fine.

    Hoping for attention span cans soon, might be one of my favorite pale ales.

    Thanks for the review. I picked up a single of this and regret not getting more - wow! Best hoppy beer I've had from Threes.

    I enjoyed Temporary Identity far more than I enjoyed Bad Wallpaper from a previous canning run.

    So for those who participate in pre-sales... is it worth getting it for the SFY? Last time they had pre-sales for Temporary Identity but I was able to Connor McGregor walk into Three's and just pick up a 6 pack.

    Hard to say. I can say that SFY was really good. I did the presale for that one the first time it was released because I knew I'd be combining my stop with other Brooklyn breweries that day.

    I'll be there for sure next weekend so I think I'll partake in the presale just to be sure. Thanks!

    Anyone have the recent unreliable and SFY? SFY is excellent, and a bit too easy to drink at 9.4%. I didnt love Unreliable Narrator on first pass, but there are 3 more in the fridge to help me change my mind

    SFY is waaaaaay too easy to drink at 9.4%. first time trying it last night and quite impressed. nice mouthfeel and great aroma. The only other beer i've sampled more than a few times for comparisons sake that's around the 9% mark is OH's green diamonds, and I can say I like SFY much much more.

    they definitely do for beers that are not their own. the actual threes beers are always either fours or sixes and i've never asked if i could just grab one or two. worth an inquiry though...

    The Summer Edition of Can Jam will take place on June 4th, at Threes. We've got some new additions, this time around, and some of old favorites.

    Any verdict on the No Panacea? Trying to figure out if it's worth the trek to grab a 4pck

    It's pretty unique - starts off as a heavy juice bomb then finishes with a strange almost astringent tartness, from the guava, I guess. After finishing one I can't quite tell if I love it or hate it.

    Hope they stock up better this time. It's fine that the hype stuff is gone fast, but it's crazy when even a local like LIC is gone with 1-2 hours.

    Never seen a limit on it. You may be able to find it in Whole Foods if you can't get enough at the brewery.

    Can you buy cans to go at the greenpoint location? It's looking so, but I want to confirm.

    We have about 30% more cans this time around and are doing the best we can to make this as egalitarian as possible. Still, we recommend arriving early to ensure maximum variety.
