    Flavorama. As would be depicted by my avatar. Sea of Green was also very good.

    Weedeater was the hoppy beer I liked the least from them so far. I've had them all I think.

    They have bottled a couple beers but they have been super limited. They do growler fills of all their beers though. You must have an unlabeled growler or buy one from them. They have 1 and 2 liter growlers. The 1 liters are flip top and the 2 liter are screw tops. Both have their labels and I believe cost 5 dollars for the glass and the price of the beer that fills up the glass depends on what it is.

    they have only released 1 official bottle so far (at their halloween beer dinner), if you don't count the 4 bottles of R5 that they gave away in a contest.
    the other bottles are coming. don't ask when.
    and to add to what was already said, they will also fill NON-brewery growlers, too (ie, a bottle shop's growler or something along those lines)

    Hard to choose. So many good ones. FlavorAroma, Earthbound, and WeedEater have been my favorites. Honorable mentions to Good Good Things, Brothers, and Sea of Green.

    TH certainly does a ton saisons and what not, but to me, their IPA's are just ridiculous. I certainly gravitate towards their hoppier offerings.

    Shared a growler of the Slava Oner with some local BA's not too long back. Was as much berliner weiss as kvass, but very good whatever you want to call it.

    Looking forward to trying more of the saisons and hoppy offerings in the future.

    Cheers!

    WeedEater (maybe because its most recent in my memory), FlavorAroma, amazingly fresh HopHands drank 15 minutes after tapping, Lil' Lady and Mysterious Mood.

    Vampire and Delicado have been their two best beers in my opinion.

    That one was extremely creative and interesting. Enjoyed it thoroughly, although my fav is still Good Good Things.

    I thought Good Good Things was stellar. Zombie, the Uber Helles, and Trois Enfants: Lazy Feet were also exceptional. I've yet to have a beer from them that I haven't found to be, at worst, very good.

    Good good things and the recent falcos nerd flight have been my favorites. So lucky to have this amazing brewpub in the neighborhood.

    They've made some real nice sourish stuff. Good Good Things, Slava Oner (the kvass), and Brothers were all fantastic. Thouroughly enjoyed them all.

    The memory of drinking Delicado in the scorching VT will always remain in my mind. What a refreshing beer.

    Every time I go, I find a new favorite. Deep Sleep is on now & it's fantastic. Domo is also great - unique barrel aged goodness.

    Went there yesterday. Liked Nerd flight a lot. Deep sleep and uber helles were excellent. single hop saison and hop hands were very drinkable. Only beer I didn't care for was the black rye saison.

    Domo is really good too if it's still on tap.

    Only was able to try five whilst in town over the holidays: falco's nerd flight, Hops hands, single hop motueka, Farm hands, in that order. The fifth was The barrel aged domo, but it was only about 2 oz, so I dont really recall where it would have landed amongst the others.

    Any thoughts on their current tap offerings? They all sound really good. I'm going later today. My lady has a job interview in Bryn Mawr and I offered to drive her there out of the kindness of my heart and definitely not so I can go to Tired Hands while I wait.

    Nigel and the Uber Helles are awesome. I really enjoyed Domo too.

    I will definitely get some Uber Helles. It's so hard to find a decent American-made Helles.
