    Another month, another thread. It's worked well in the past so here we go again. Let's try and make this one stop shopping for all things Tree House. Please use this thread to post the bottles/cans available along with costs, sizes, limits, and so forth.

    Wow, four different beers, available in growlers and cans? Awesome! Definitely am not going to miss driving an hour and 45 minutes for a couple bottles!

    Yeah, this is 100% true here, too. It was awesome to head out, grab a few growlers, hit up BT's. But with cans an option, it's so much better. I've yet to go, but shit, think about BT's. I always debate on the ten minute drive to BT's what growler will be "sacrificed." Now I can just bust out a can.

    Seems to me like they filled up their tanks with new beers that people didn't have expectations of to test out the new system. This could lead to their "classic" beer (Julius anybody?) making an appearance in the next 1-2 weeks.


    Or I could be completely wrong since I have no idea what I am talking about.

    They have released SAP and Julius in cans already.

    Does this mean you can now buy a case of cans at treehouse? (12PM, 12 C13)

    That is true, but those cans were from their old 5bbl system. Now the have transitioned to their new 30bbl system so we were just hypothesizing when we might see the bigger batches of beers like Sap/Haze/Julius/Green from the new system.

    So I'm thinking of making my first trip out to TH from Boston tonight, and wondering what to expect. It looks like an hour and 15 min drive, so what's a reasonable time to arrive at if they open at 5? If I got there 30 mins early, are people lined up or just sitting in cars? Also can line is cash only? Then I get in the growler line and submit an order?

    If you get there 30 minutes before there will be people in line, especially with two different cans for sale but you should be fine for both. The can line is cash or credit. They pass out a slip when you are standing in line as to what you want to order for growlers so they can stay ahead. By the time I made it through the can line Saturday they were two away from my growler fills so they keep it moving quickly.

    Get there by 4 or a little before you should be ok.....usually! Could be 10-20 people in line by then

    Can anyone guess how long it will take tonight to sell out on cans tonight? I want to make the trip, but I wouldn't arrive until around 6:30.

    pjs234 Devotee (456) Jun 29, 2008 Connecticut

    FWIW, I believe all canned releases have made it through the initial release day. At about 75 cases each, 150 people would need to show up and buy their full allotment of both PM and C13. My guess is that 6:30 will be safe (but nobody knows for sure). It seems like the pattern has been an initial rush at opening, resulting in a line for cans, once that line clears there really isn't much of a can line the rest of the night. The consolation prize is that both beers are available for growler fills and should last a few days.

    VAGABOND (Imperial IPA - 7.9% ABV) - Last month we invited our very good friend and talented brewer from Iowa, Mike Saboe, into Tree House to create a beer with Tree House with assistant brewer Brendan Prindiville who took the leading role on his second commercial beer…! The result is Vagabond - a highly collaborative, pungent Imperial IPA brewed exclusively with Nelson Sauvin and Mosaic hops. Vagabond pours a brilliant hazy yellow in the glass with a frothy bright white head. We smell and taste super bright notes of papaya, kiwi, blended tropical fruit juice, and a plethora of citrus. She finishes cleanly, with just the right amount of bitterness to balance things out. A beautiful beer to welcome spring - and to celebrate lasting friendship! (750 ML - $10) *** Limit 2 750 ML PP ***

    pjs234 Devotee (456) Jun 29, 2008 Connecticut

    To get cans, yeah probably. I was #16, and got through the can line in 10 min or so. I think someone mentioned that, at its peak, the can line is 30-60 min to get through it. Now with Vagabond on too, all bets are off... though I would still imagine that the can line will move at a good pace.

    Today was definitely close to Yahhhrrgg!! day. The line was zig zagging through the retail shop with at least another 75 people outside waiting to get inside. I saw a bunch of people taking pictures so hopefully someone can post one here

    Yikes, I'm glad I used my better judgement and decided against going. I was about to hit the road at 3:30 when I saw Jmr85's update. I think a lot of people (myself included) were holding off making the trip until the limits were increased. Oh well, I went KBS hunting and came up with a 4 pack and some Not Your Father's root beer so it wasn't a total loss.

    I was about 80th in line (according to the fill sheets they were passing out, obviously there were folks just getting cans) and I was in line from 355-550. Cans kicked at about 605 (75 cases of each, enough for 150 people to each get the max allotment). Crazy.
