    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

    (prices vary occasionally for higher gravity / limited quantity beers)

    The Cafe is now selling 32oz crowlers.

    Added the little bit about crowlers to the end there.
    Also Prayer Group Batch 3 and Freedom from the Known both released today.

    Sorry if this breaks protocol looks like multiple people had started this thread in the past.

    Is the general store subject to the 192 oz limit too? I've had a hard time keeping up with the changing PA laws the last few years.

    Almost the best part of the shake releases, especially since I don’t have the patience to stand in line in the cold.

    I've never had a milkshake before, and I'm almost tempted to go so I'm not drinking all morning and blitzed before the game. What time should I get in line if I decide to do this?

    So tomorrow will probably be a little less or more intense than normal, but typically you’re fine if your there by 7-9. You can sometimes show up at opening and get it but I wouldn’t risk it.

    Looks like the hazebros got their wish with a Superbowl milkshake release. In a way I'm disappointed. Some of the people commenting on the Schwarzbier release were such scumbags I would have paid good money just to see their little hearts broken.

    Remember when pumpkin lasted forever cause of low allotments. I bet the same thing happens today. I can’t agree more with the above the same scum who were complaining like babies are there happy in all their glory. They’ll be able to post their haul pics after all I guess. Hopefully they get a lot of likes.

    I shouldn't be expressing surprise at Shake lines anymore, but here I am...

    Oh well, Tang is one of my favorite Tired Hands beers and the timing of this release is absolutely perfect to get out of here relatively early and take them straight to tailgate. Go Eagles!

    This is going to be one of the longest Tired Hands lines ever. If it lasts for a while it's going to be because they made a ton and have low allotments, both of which are possible.

    Ah man that sucks. 8 x 10% beers isn’t close to enough beer for the Super Bowl.

    Pouring out a little beer for the hazeboiz (or lactose lads as you guys call them) in line who are facing real problems right now

    Saw on Instagram that they were warning people they were almost out around the time I was going to head over so didn't make it. Forget volume of beer in a couple hours I find it impressive they are still pulling that many allotments in a couple hours.

    My third Milkshake release and definitely the longest line I've seen yet. I'd say there was about 700 people maybe more for the initial line. I was toward the back end of the line and my brother and I got our beer around 12:15.

    Cracked one last night and it was really good...hoppy orange creamsicle and not boozy for the abv. Maybe my favorite one I've had yet. Cheers

    How quickly do the shakes fall off? Still drink well 45-60 days later?

    You think the complaining is bad in the Instagram feeds, you should hear the whining at the 8am chair drop when there is too many people to fit and they realize people are already lined up down alongside the apartments, and wrapping back almost to Rittenhouse.

    Or when the volunteers don’t kick linecutters to the back of the line....

    Shakes last for a month or more. I was drinking double extra vanilla shakes last night and they’re fine. They’ve lost some vanilla but not much.

    i personally find a lot of them taste better after 45-60 days... they are gimmick beers.. once the hops subside some... in a round about way... they taste more like the gimmick... 45-60 days may be the sweet spot..i've had some taste sublime over 6 months old.. while not advised it's fun to see when the sweet spot may be... after all.. they are gimmick beers

    Got in line at 11:30 sharp. Was in line for roughly an hour and 15 minutes. When I left, there was roughly a little more than a half pallet left from what I could see.

    Went for schwarzbier and hop hands at about 12:45. Walked by ferm line wasn’t long at all so I snagged a four pack. Took me all of 15 minutes. Granted that wasn’t my goal to get it so I wouldn’t suggest this if your goal is to get the haze. I was one of the last 10 people before it sold out I’d say.

    Gotta say these shakes are a cool idea but they are so heavy that half a can is plenty. 16 oz is overkill for my beer preference at least.

    Boy, the line moved quickly. I dropped chairs at about 8:45 and went to breakfast at Nudys. Got back to the line about 11:35 or so. I was right about St. Paul road. I was through the line by 12:05 with beer in hand and they had not started the final pallet yet. Went to the Cafe for a pour and thought maybe it would make it to the bar since they had 900 allotments so we returned to the Ferm to check it out. It sold out just as we were getting back about 1:00. Very, very easy release and everyone was in a great mood with the impending Eagles game. Very nice day overall....except for the few snow flurries and the slight rain...but otherwise.

    PS: The shake is freaking awesome, I just wish it was a 3-4pack limit, but hey lots to go around for everyone.
