    Got there at 12:20 and there were 100+ in line. They opened at 1:50 and I was in my car at 2:15. Line went through parking lot, up driveway and down the street. Cars down both sides of road for quite a ways. First people in line said they got there at 8:30! Very happy with my 30 cans, but would not want to be there now with that line and quantities rapidly dropping.

    Thanks for the answers on aging Green. That's what I have found as well, but I was a little confused by wording.

    Hey yall, going to Treehouse for the first time Friday. I saw the wait was an hour and a half today, is that the norm at open?

    I don't know, looks as though between 7 and 8 you could just walk in and grab a case and growlers with no wait. Kind of wish I had waited.

    all bets are off this week.

    typically, Fridays are mellower than Thursdays but with so many people having this Friday off, it's anyone's guess. There will still be Julius, both in cans and for fills, and it's always nutty when that dude's around. The leftovers of Green and Haze in cans, as well as a pretty deep line-up for growlers, will make this Friday a wild card.

    I'd still go! Defintely go! If you went after 6, you could be out in a matter of 10 minutes or so with cans (though you'd risk some cans running out. check the site for qtys on hand). A bit longer if you want fills. If you show up at 4, then get out by 5:30, it'll probably be 90 minutes...but it's an easy 90 minutes. (ymmv)

    I usually try to show up towards the end, but had to be at a Thanksgiving thang. I now have Julius, Green, and Haze in my belly with my first Single Shot on deck. Plus, I just had to slam the fridge door closed to cram everything in :slight_smile:

    Anyone else think this batch of Green is just off the charts? I mean I know this is just perpetually an amazing beer, and people are always on about "this batch is better" and the like, but DAMN, I'm really feeling it. I guess to try and put a finger on what I'm liking better, I would say that I'm getting way less bitterness than I remember, and just an extra layer of this overripe stone fruit and pineapple thing.

    Yes. The latest two batches have been off the charts.

    Drove by at 1:30 last Wednesday - so nuts. All lots filled, cars lining the road diagonally past Tree House, some parking in the farm way behind Koran's Farm Gift Shop. Lady friend wasn't interested in waiting.

    Came back at 4:30, slightly less crazy. Line no longer in the road. Took 70 minutes, just like they said on Twitter. I think they had three people w/ iPads? Worked well I thought! Bang up job by Tree House.

    Hit up Armsby later that night for some Madness & Solitude.

    For the record, my experience of Thanksgiving weekend finds that now Tuesday is the bigger travel day. My commute on Tuesday PM at 4PM from Auburn to Worcester was over an hour. My commute on the dreaded Wednesday PM, again at 4PM, was 35 minutes. Seems like maybe we have a new normal for traffic T-day week.

    Last batch of haze is tasting more incredible than usual imo.

    Hoping to swing by on Wednesday for cans. How has the wait been on Wednesdays? Also hoping there's more than 1 option for cans.

    The pattern recently is if TH posts available cans by tomorrow afternoon, you should be good for another packaging by Wednesday at open. It has never taken me more than 10 minutes to get my cans, but have only been Wednesdays on 2 different occasions and there may be a longer "normal" wait time with the holiday season here.

    2 weeks ago there was about a 25 minute wait at open.
