    Growler Filling Policy: "Please feel free to fill as many growlers as you would like. In Pennsylvania, each transaction must be limited to 192 fluid ounces. This means that upon receipt, if you would like to purchase more than 192 fluid ounces of our beer, you must leave the premises and then return to pick up additional beer (and then repeat the cycle if you’d like any more beer!).

    We will also be opening up for 64 oz growler fills on MOST ALL BEERS. There will, of course, continue to be a few beers that we will not do any growler fills of (one-off kegs, anniversary beers, etc.), but this should be a rare occurrence.

    We will continue to fill our branded glassware only, as we are STILL exceedingly proud to put our name on our Strange & Beautiful beer. If this is a very big issue for you, we will be happy to let you “trade-in” any growler for one of ours. Sound good?"

    Growler fill Prices
    64 oz:
    $20.00
    32 oz: $10.50
    Glass: $5.00

    @DrinkAnchorSteam didn't put up an April thread yet, so I did it. If it's a no-no for me to do it we can let this one fall off the page.

    I assume there was no Sunday release this weekend, I was away but I didn't see anything for sure.

    Nope anyone can make it. I actually only did it the one month because I hadn't seen one made at that time. Then just went with it from there.

    I really hope that Tired Hands doesn't start announcing all can sales on the day of the sale like last week. That would really screw up someone like myself who drives from some 80 miles away and needs time to plan my work schedule to get away.

    And that good friends is the straight talk express. this whole thing does seem to be getting worse? i don't know if i'm finally over the novelty of can releases now that it's been over a year? what was once an exciting "I wonder what's next!" is now just ...

    Or, maybe by pushing back can announcements they want to cater to the locals who continually stop by after work instead of planning 5 hours trips to the Ferm? Or by doing so they want to cut down on the ridiculous line? I know some people continually think differently of the brewery, but I don't think either of those explanations are ridiculous to consider...

    This could also have to with the fact that the construction on Cricket has pushed the line into other parts of the neighborhood. Perhaps the locals on these streets are not happy.

    Odd how they announced HopHands before the other two.

    Those Hazey Jane labels look awfully Other Halfy.

    I never said Tired Hands gave a shit about me. If I can't make it to a release, some other beer nerd will be ready and willing to buy the beer. So I don't need you to clue me in to a fucking thing.

    Permit me to suggest that the part of "nor anybody elses schedule" is the bigger part of the message.

    Really wish the beer with added sugar thing would end. It's already got natural sugars it doesn't need to be turned into soda.

    Some of my favorite breweries, Tired Hands included, are also some of the worst offenders in a trend that I hate, which is catering to child-like taste preferences. All this added sugar, fruit, and dessert is ridiculous at this point. It was kind of fun as a novelty but now its the biggest draw.

    "brewed with spelt and lactose sugar"

    "Brewed with malted oats, raw white wheat, and lactose sugar"

    This may sound stupid but does this mean neither of these beers are using any barley?

    They need something with diastatic power to convert the starch to sugar so it's safe to assume it's 50% barley or much more.

    ok, thanks. I guess it's just a "given" and that's why they don't list it in the ingredient call-out. Then again they don't mention any specific yeast but not many do.

    Because the "child-like" customers are willing to pay BIG BUCKS for those beers? Over 20 bucks a 4-pack for Milkshake series beers.

    Are they really supposed to care about our schedules? They're a business they're there to make money. basically if you can't make it to can releases its too bad but its not like you can't get beer at all just grab a growler or a pint. The moaning and crying is tiring.

    The complaints are getting comical. "They charge too much!" "They cater to child-like tastes!" "They don't care about my schedule!"

    You realize they sell out most can releases instantly and have other beers inside their establishments, most of which are not made with lactose, right? Does it really warrant a complaint if a brewery isn't canning the exact beer you want, when you want it, at the price you want? Jesus people, have a little perspective and stop hating all the time.

    That would be great, putting something to hold you place in line is BS anyway. If you get there, you stay there. I havent been to a TH release but if I did, I would stand behind the last PERSON I see, not a chair.

    Seeing this in the groups I'm in. Wouldn't be surprised if it's:
    1) True
    2) Tired Hands won't comment about it until after this release.

    Can't wait to see what this shitshow is going to look like at 4 when I get there. Maybe I'll be bumped up to the front of the line!! :slight_smile:

    Well if the chairs are done the only good thing to come out of it is we won't hear from the internet tough guys anymore that would throw the chairs out of the way and move to the front

    The chairs have created a weird dynamic. Hopefully people will be less inclined to get to releases 5 hours early and it can be a little less of a mess. It worked fine at the cafe for years, but then people started dropping chairs and leaving. It looks bad to locals and local businesses, I am surprised they allowed it this long. It does bring some business to the area, but more likely it scares people away.
