    I assume you're being facetious, but my wife works in an ER in Boston and was actually concerned about being overwhelmed by an influx of withdrawing alcoholics if liquor stores were closed.

    That appears to be the going theory. Liquor stores are closed in PA; anybody from around there notice if we're seeing this knock-on effect?

    How many people are out there that this is a legitimate concern? I drink a fair amount, probably more than most people, but I routinely go a week without a drink. Notwithstanding the concern over acute alcoholism, I personally would be displeased if I couldn't pick up some beer. We all need to cope. But I am curious, what percent of Americans would actually have detox symptoms that would require medical care?

    There will still be cans when we are on Covid-20.

    It's only state liquor. You can still go to a lot of places to buy booze.

    That's right; I forgot PA has some of the zaniest liquor laws out there.

    Does it matter how many? If we're truly so hard up for hospital beds, even one single alcoholic occupying one of those beds is a problem. Seems like the best way to avoid that problem altogether is letting packies stay open. It's a calculated risk based on what we know about the virus so far.

    It also keeps the people from rioting in the streets or expressing their "displeasure". You have to be reasonable and mindful of how much people are willing to take. With this particular virus, quarantine must be a balance that's not too restrictive because it's not all that deadly. If we were dealing with something like MERS that kills half of all infected people, then holy fucking shit we need to shut down everything, regardless of how the people feel about it. Riots and detoxing alcoholics would totally be justified in that case.

    No, I’m just happy I can still buy beer. But yeah, they had a doctor on the news around here justifying the same point about keeping them open.

    And please give your wife a big hug from us all. Seriously, thank her.

    Much more of an issue than at first blush. This is/was a consideration for CT too. Not to mention potential looting.

    I agree it was super easy. Probably 7 or 8 cars in front of me today and could not have taken more than 5 minutes. I missed out on the easy charm as the guy replied to my Yankees sweatshirt with the always entertaining "Yankees suck". It was all in good humor, though, as it wasn't exactly the first time I had heard that one and we had a little banter about it (hey, I wear it out for a reason!). Gotta say, as someone who is almost 2 hours away, I would not mind seeing the online ordering thing continue after this is all over. Nice to know that you will be getting what you want after making the drive..

    you see... this is exactly the behavior that we need to avoid.. I mean the fact that they are serving Yankees fans is unconscionable....

    At least next time you order they know where to "accidentally" swap those Old Man cans for delicious juice.

    Think it's mostly breweries trying to stay away from poor taste.

    Although there are some that are doing this.

    Tree House has been making beer with "poor taste" since they moved to Charlton.

    Came to say two things.
    Firstly, Tree House is way ahead of their time in every aspect ranging from beer to business.

    Secondly, Perfect Storm is their best beer after Green and Green's siblings. I'm shocked it doesn't garner more hype.

    Tree House started out hot with this virus. Social distancing to barriers to closing. Now two weeks later, Hill Farmstead is closed indefinitely and TH is over here releasing a Very Hazy/Very Green hybrid new beer. I’m confused. And I also want On the Fly :slight_smile:.

    On The Fly

    “*On The Fly is a Double IPA by Tree House Brewing Company. It is an amalgamation of Tree House IPA design, drawing heavily from Very Hazy in hopping construct and Very Green in malt grist design. Pouring a gorgeous opaque yellow color in the glass, On The Fly presents with notes of orange juice, ripe mango, dank peach, and blended tropical fruit cocktail. It’s a banger.”

    I really appreciate Shaun Hill's message, that staying open is risky to his community as it almost exclusively draws from far and wide. I know many of us travel for Tree House, but they can stay open ostensibly to service the locals.

    I preferred Super Typhoon to Perfect Storm for whatever reason, but I concur in general. Their weather line is my favorite of their core stuff.

    I don't know why I thought Tree House On the Fly would allow me to mix my own case but they won't and now I am sad.
