    hmmmm well thats gross. I used their cans as extras for a couple months before I had one and I was actually shocked at how good it was! I had Marathon and thought it could become my #2 local after Hag. I haven't seen any cans since the summer though. They tout their new space on social media quite often though, showing the construction progress.

    I had the coffee cake porter at the two roads fest recently and enjoyed it, but other friends and I have run into infected bottles from them a few times and have been generally avoiding them as a result since.

    Yea it sounds pretty shitty on the landlords part, but glad the news covered the follow-up. Could have been detrimental to TS's future at their new place, which sounds like a great move. Is he pissed at them moving and him losing the revenue? Was he really just honestly concerned it was mold? I don't know what his original basis was for reporting his concern, so that's just my 2 cents. Glad to see them persevering though! I wish a new brewery would move into the old John Harvards, loved that place when it was open.

    I went about 1.5-2 years ago and sampled everything they had on tap that day. It was by far the worst beer I had ever tasted. I wish I was exaggerating. Hopefully they've improved since then; judging by a couple of the comments above, it seems like they may have.

    That's how I feel about Stoney brook.

    Agree about how they were tasting 2 years ago or so but yeah they definitely have improved. Marathon is a solid IPA and the saison is nice too. Apparently they've made some pretty good brewery only bottles too.
