    New brewery location is now open.

    OUR MONSON BREWERY IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED. PLEASE VISIT US AT 129 STURBRIDGE ROAD, CHARLTON.


    Important links:

    FOLLOW @treehousebrewco on Twitter for real time updates

    @DigitalNate has been known to make occasional comments when speculation is not correct on this monthly thread.



    Cans:


    This week's canning schedule, not guaranteed:

    + Tuesday

    + Wednesday

    + Thursday

    + Friday

    We are packaging into cans on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week. Cans become available the day they are packaged, with the exception of the Tuesday canning run, which is available on Wednesday when we are open. Thanks!


    Pints:


    As we settle into our new brewery, the availability of pints will be sporadic (except for Tuesday and Saturday) and dependent on the crowd. If we are too busy it is not possible to maintain an enjoyable and efficient experience for takeaway beer and serve pints at the same time. Stay tuned to Twitter to learn if and when pours are available.


    Growlers:


    While we transition to the new brewery, growler fills are temporary on hold. Fear not - they will be back. They are a huge part of what makes us Tree House.

    New Glass 750 ML - $5 | 2L - $6


    Parking:


    REGARDING PARKING ON VERY BUSY DAYS, PLEASE HEED THE GUIDANCE OF OUR PARKING STAFF. ALSO, USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN ENTERING AND EXITING THE PROPERTY. THANK YOU!


    Line:


    There is just one line, the can line! You may order growlers (not available at this time) from the can line, when they become available at the new brewery. Our staff will assist you by handing out and collecting order cards for growlers while you wait for cans.

    ABSOLUTELY no drinking in the line or on the outside grounds!


    If you have to smoke, please step out far enough from the line so other people don't have to inhale your smoke. Thank you.

    We make every effort to keep limits the same, and this is indeed the case 95% of the time. On rare occasions when we believe it will be beneficial to visitors, we will lower limits to spread the love around a bit.

    ALL LIMITS POSTED ARE PER PERSON, PER DAY. No SECOND TRIPS THROUGH THE LINE during the same day even if they add new cans later in the day.

    ALL WHO PURCHASE BEER AT TREE HOUSE MUST PRESENT A VALID AND CURRENT PHOTO ID, NO EXCEPTIONS.


    BYOB:

    The beer you purchase at Tree House can be enjoyed at Westview Creamery on East Hill Road, and at BT's Smokehouse in Sturbridge.


    Nearby Bottle Shop:

    Yankee Spirits in Sturbridge, is the closest. It's close to BT's Smokehouse.

    Historical information on can/bottle releases:

    Awesome Tree House can release spreadsheet done by @BeerTraveler33.

    In his own words:

    Feel free to remind me, @BeerTraveler33, to update this as I usually only update the file on my work PC and I forget to update the google doc.

    He asks if anybody has any suggestions for his spreadsheet to write to him.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zWyBt7I2feobTsX5GcZvm91pn3fxuxEu-cI8oodXBi8/edit?usp=sharing

    This is the spreadsheet that you seen cropped, cut, and pasted on posts. Full credit should be given to @BeerTraveler33 for creating and maintaining it.


    Another spreadsheet link is below and was created (and maintained) by @BEEPOP. Great job too.

    Family history
    (thanks to @jomobono)

    Julius, IPA
    • JJJuliusss, IPA. Additional hops in the kettle and dry hopping
    • King Julius, DIPA. The Imperial Version of Julius
    • King JJJuliusss DIPA. The Imperial Version of JJJuliusss
    Alter Ego, IPA The same base beer as Julius but dry hopped with mosaic and amarillo
    • Doppelganger, DIPA. The Imperial version of Alter Ego
    • Doubleganger, DIPA. Additional hops in the kettle and dry hopping of Doppelganger
    Sap, IPA
    • Sssappp, IPA. Version of Sap that utilizes larger kettle and dry hop additions
    • Super Sap, DIPA. The Imperial version of Sap

    Dogs / Kids:


    Children, dogs and families are always welcome at Tree House


    Good Morning:

    This has come up several times in past months. According to @DigitalNate, Good Morning has not been retired.

    However all beers, including Good Morning, on this BA site that are listed as "limited" or in this case "rotating" and have not been released again eventually gets moved to the "archived" list, if not re-released over a period of time (forgot how long). It has nothing to do with whether or not it will actually be brewed again despite the red "This beer is retired; no longer brewed." which is added automatically by the site. This line sometimes confuses people but disappears when the beer is moved back to the "current" list.


    Shuttle bus:


    If you find yourself parked in the lower lot, we now provide shuttle service that runs thru every 5 minutes or so...now you don't have to exercise to get up that hill (although some of us could use the workout). :stuck_out_tongue:

    Besides, it's way too cold and hard to carry your boxes down the hill in the winter. A welcome addition to the brewery. :slight_smile:


    Finally:

    Please do not take the glasses home that the brewery uses for its pint pours. The price you pay does NOT include the glass purchase! @DigitalNate wrote the following online:

    So last Friday was 12 P&P, 24 AE, 24 Green, and 12 Julius. This Friday will be 24 LO, 4-6ish Bbbrighttt, and whatever drops tomorrow. It's kind of hilarious.

    I'd like to try this BBBright. I'm becoming a mosaic convert after really not liking it for a while. I've had good luck with it recently with Born Yesterday, Dinner, and Birds of a Feather.

    This would be my 2nd week in a row. I can feel the stubble coming in.

    So begins the speculation of what “a lot” of new beer tomorrow means. I wonder what the most amount of different beers they’ve produced for one day has been.

    There will most likely be 2 varietals, it would be awesome to walk away with 5 different types of cans tomorrow

    Also can we PLEASE get a stout tomorrow, that would be great.

    Total agreement here. Remember a year ago when you went to Tree House, walked out with 10 cans total split between three different beers and were thrilled?

    Man people are sensitive. I'm not a hater at all, I just feel like 2 cans is the least we've had recently on a Thursday. I like Lights On just fine....

    I think he was complaining about the variety, not the individual beers but who knows.

    I’ve never had Lights On before. How does it compare to Tornado? Which for me was one of the weaker TH beers I’ve had. It wasn’t bad at all just a little more bitter and chewy than I expected.

    That's the reason Tornado rules.

    It's been a long time since I've had LO, but my recollection is it's more "treehouse-y" than tornado. Low bitterness, soft, solid mouthfeel though a little lighter due to the lower abv.

    Lights On is great. I hope Nate has more pale ales up his sleeve.

    The TH yeast with a light hop profile is absurdly drinkable. That's the perfect beer for a busy SB weekend. But you know, whalez.

    Also, Bbbrighttt is one of the best mosaic IPA's I've ever had. OG Bright is great, but the nose and flavor are very "restrained", for lack of a better term.

    Bbbrighttt takes the kid gloves off and smacks you in the face with its big, mosaic dong.
