    If the line update page is to be believed there’s an accident in the treehouse parking lot due to someone not putting their car in park and leaving.

    3rd pole was and always has been 45 minute wait when canning is in front. My god, they have conditioned us to the point like 45 minute lines are a good thing.

    Its in the back today and was well beyond 3rd pole. I'd have left to (but gone to armsby to not waste the trip) Everyone knew or should have know this would be the case Friday. Unfortunately no matter how fast those guys move its very hard to make up a Friday morning wrap around line before open when people are constantly flowing in.

    Thats what the #MTC silents the last 6 weeks on Friday have wrought us. Its a zoo before open. We need a few more lights out Fridays to have any normalcy this summer.

    If I was gonna invest 5 hours for a Treehouse run, i'm adding one hour and making it a Hill Farmstead run, or i'm going to Suarez. But i'm a Saison guy, who appreciates a good IPA.

    Sorry but this is 100% not true. The rule of thumb was ALWAYS 20 min per pole and walkway another ~15 min. I know this because I used to burn money weekly up there last summer.

    I will concede, only because from experience, when the line is that long, I leave.

    I know TH is constantly changing thier operation. On Saturday do you still buy your drink tickets at the end of the canning line when you pay for your cans?

    Line to bathroom gents, gonna head that way. pours 1pp.

    No, you can do either or. You can wait in the can line get both, or go to the draft line, get pours, then go get cans later if need be.

    I think it's fair to not want your small allotments to be treated like a scarlet letter.

    At the end of the day, we're all a bunch of assholes traveling and waiting exorbitant amounts of time to purchase alcohol. Whether you're going to dome a few in the name of a "hobby" or flip a couple cuz a man's gotta eat, it's all a big whateverburger to me.

    KJJJ dropped to one pp while people were waiting in line tonight and now expected to last the full day tomorrow at 1pp per twitter? That’s kinda messed up TH. Give the people that were waiting the allotment and drop for tomorrow. Yikes.

    • Aaalter Ego!, IPA. Additional hops in the kettle and dry hopping
    Change Doubleganger line to:
    • Doubleganger, DIPA. The Imperial version of Aaalter
    Add the windy family:

    Needs similar descriptions for the storms as the other families.

    And maybe also add the Greens?

    I was about 10 people from the registers when that happened. Nice little surprise. At least it didn't happen earlier in the day when people had been waiting 2 hours.

    Alright boyzzz. Cracked my first KJJJ now. Its as good as advertised/hyped. Reminds me a lot of JM but not as thick and less of that galaxy pineapple flavor from the VG hop profile (they state this in the description of JM). I like it better than KJ and much better than Jjjuliusss. For 8.4% it’s a crusher and could take you by surprise if you’re a lightweight like I am. Very Hazy is the only mega whale IPA from them that I have not tried and it may be the only one that could top this for me personally as Haze is my favorite core offering.

    Hope you all can get a can of this to enjoy, it’s really amazing that they can make beer taste like this. Hype train rolling on and deserved.

    Not saying "it's cool." Just saying don't be surprised is all.

    If someone really wanted it, they either should have gone earlier or the day before.

    I understand people have jobs and responsibilities and might not have been able to go. That is not Tree House's problem nor should it be

    Well it’s not made in Berlin and technically Berliner Weisse wouldn’t be conditioned on fruit and or herbs, it would be served with a shot of syrup to add to the beer. While most American breweries would call this a Berliner it doesn’t need mean they’re correct.
