    If you bring caps they will re-use unless the cap is gross, but you are not expected.

    So, are they doing another can run today? Also, what is the ideal time to get there for the 5pm open? I can be there really at any time after 4.

    As there's been no announcement of today's beer by 2 PM, the ideal time to get in line is an hour ago.

    They open at 5pm today, no? I have a feeling that the release today is going to be something big because they delayed the announcement for so long. Heading out right after class ends.

    Yeah, the problem with this new "silent release" idea is that everyone's on to them now...

    Does the update this morning count? They changed the can limits for green and alter ego.

    They confirmed on Twitter earlier that another canned beer is being released today.

    I always find that going on a Thursday night will be the best bet for stocking up. Went last Thursday night no can line and walked out in five minutes.

    "Not a chance"? King Julius was only made once like years ago, it's come out twice since the first week of December. I'm guessing many of these runs will a couple times year now... how else do you think regular beers like Alter Ego (my fave after Julius) will sell out?

    berto714 Initiate (0) Oct 16, 2014 New York

    Wait, are you suggesting that if they only canned regular offerings, they wouldn't sell out? That seems far-fetched, at least in the current environment.
     
  22. Abbbp

    Abbbp Initiate (0) Mar 9, 2013 Texas

    Now obviously I could be wrong, but yes at the limits they were at, I don't see Alter Ego or Green selling out this week- but then again, everyone knows that Thursday is the secret drop day, so why go Wednesday when you can go Thursday

    Could be, but they could always move up limits to sell out. They also went through more than half of the available beer released yesterday with 3 days left this week.

    Abbbp Initiate (0) Mar 9, 2013 Texas

    yup I saw that exact same quote... probably the same place you did. :wink:
    That is true I didn't think about them increasing the limits- but at the original limits, the amount of people that went yesterday doesn't mean that they were gonna sell out of the beer. More than half the people that wanted to go this week could've gone yesterday.

    I'm not hating on TreeHouse, I dig their band man, but, my initial point was that no beer of theirs until they state themselves, is only "twice a year".

    Oh yea for sure, I agree with this. If I had to guess we'll see these amped-up versions a bit more frequently.

    I knew it had to be something good since they waited forever to post something to their twitter account. Too bad I won't get to try it. :slight_frown:

    If there are any Very Hazy cans left by the end of tonight, I'd be shocked if there were more than 10 cases. Entirely possible they could sell all of them tonight, along with what's left of Alter Ego and Green. At least there's a new canning run tomorrow.

    So I just saw some doucher come down the side driveway and throw a cigarette butt down right in front of the sign that says "please don't use this driveway and go around".

    Real nice.

    Growlers will probably last until early saturday based on my guess that it was a 30bbl batch (and they may reduce limits to 1 750pp tomorrow?) 75 cases of cans remain as of ~ 1 hour ago. Limits on cans will probably be reduced to 2pp tomorrow, so I could see them lasting a while, but saturday might be a stretch. Just my opinion, good luck.

    I'm actually going to be up in Albany already so I'll be coming from there. 10 hours drive for beer is a bit much but I can justify 2 :stuck_out_tongue:
