    That changes things. Come first snow fall I will be the happiest man alive if I can follow up my Everett with some cans of Double Shot. Oh man oh man.

    Hell give me a few cans of good morning in the winter while I'm splitting wood/ice fishing!

    maybe I just can't relate, but why does the idea of having it cans make you think it'll be a better experience for you?

    I could care less but some people just don't like growlers

    I wouldn't say it's a better experience, It's just an easier experience. Sometimes 16 ounces of Double Shot would be just so perfect where as the 22 would get too much.

    Maybe I'm a polar bear and like to bring my beer in cans to the frozen lakes?
    It's definitely more the first part. Not that I wouldn't suck it up and drink the 22.

    I think one of the biggest appeals of getting cans at Treehouse is the limited wait time.

    You're in...you're out...you're back home drinking great beer. Not to mention they take up less room (height-wise) in my cramped fridge.

    I'll take TH any way I can, I just really appreciate the can experience all around.

    So your telling me if your going out on a hike that you would rather carry a growler or 750 around instead of a few cans?!?!

    Looks like that's all of the cans for this week. There's no "more to come" listed.

    Regarding cans vs growlers - I love both, but give the nod to cans. They are quicker to purchase, a better value, obviously last longer, and are more portable. I also like to finish the night with a stout, so pouring a 16oz can is better than cracking a 750ml for me.

    I have no problem buying both though. I've been getting cans of the hoppy stuff and growlers of the darker options lately...love it! Keep it up TH!

    Just celebrated my anniversary with my wife. Bummed to miss out on in perpetuity. I got plenty of C21, Julius, and lights on so I can't be too bummed but my romantic side has me feeling like I missed out. Haha. I'm a sap.

    Re: In Perpetuity:
    I know it's Tree House, and I should never doubt them, but I thought the label was so amazing that the beer might have a hard time living up to it.

    I was wrong. Very, very wrong.

    I agree with both statements. Before i read your post i was going to say treehouse's label art is on point lately! My expectations of the beer were high from what i remember of beneficiaries of chance, and they were met! i believe BOC was brewed almost exactly a year ago.

    Yep, BOC was pouring on 9/17 last year. I think it was the "wedding" beer. Happy Anniversary to the Lauren & Nate! Wishing you more "In Perpetuity"

    I think cans will still be available on Saturday. There are a lot of variables. It rained all night tonight and it's supposed to rain tomorrow and there's the Brimfield Antique fair which may deter people from going.

    In Perpetuity is definitely one of the best brews I've ever had from Tree House. Congrats on the anniversary, and the awesome brew, @DigitalNate

    I'm planning on stopping at treehouse on next Saturday afternoon around 4 pm. What chances do I have of getting a sixer? Also can I buy a six pack of each beer they have canned or just one six pack.

    Generally speaking, late in the day on saturdays are probably the worst chance you have of buying a decent amount of cans. Keep an eye on the on tap page next week before you go. http://treehousebrew.com/on-tap/ treehouse sets specific limits on cans each day, and it changes frequently. On the other hand late in the day on saturday is a great time to fill growlers because the wait will be minimal.

    My first thursday going. Got there at 4:55, was out at 5:15 with my cans. Growlers were flying out, got to into the 70s or 80s by the time I left I think. Seriously, a lot of the more "popular" breweries could learn a think or two from Tree House.

    The Brimfield fair thing was very quiet today due to the rain I am guessing. Traffic moved through fine with no stopping both on my way in and out. If it's raining tomorrow I'm assuming it will be similar. Or does it not officially start until tomorrow?

    It's all about timing. This morning at 730am, I heard it was impassable. Rainy afternoons clear out early, but mornings are usually bad, no matter what the weather, in my experience...

    Going to try to make it up their for my first time and grab those cans. Growlers are up in the air depending on the line. Really excited about that new can addition for today, too. Gonna hang onto those for the cooler fall days that are coming up.

    Oh glorious day to be back and going to the brewery for me. So much deliciousness to bring to Texas with me and such sad feels to not be able to go to Tree House so often after today

    I can't believe how good that In Perpetuity is. Possibly my favorite hoppy Tree House beer of all. I hope it enters the rotation as a regular.

    I'm not the Tree House completionist that some of you are, but I've had my fair share, and Perpetuity is probably my favorite IPA after C13.
