    Going to Tree House for my first time tomorrow. When they say two pours per person, does that mean you can’t get back in line for more pours?

    Correct. Two pours for the day.

    It means that each individual can have two pints.

    Advice: get there early and get your case of cans.

    Never heard of anything like that before. Weird. I kinda wish they had more available, but Alter Ego is one of my fav’s, so I shouldn’t complain. I’m super stoked to finally check them out. It’s possible I may be able to make it back next Friday. What time do people start lining up in a normal Friday?

    joeneugs Initiate (107) Aug 28, 2008 California

    I probably won’t me able to get there tomorrow until 10:30.

    Don't worry about Fridays, pay attention to allotments on their website's "On Tap" page. If something is very low that you want, show up early. If not, show up later for a chance of cans + pours. I stress "a chance". Check into the thread here next week if you want advice.

    10:30 should be fine.

    There's a facebook line update group where people are constantly posting on the days they're open. Looks like people started showing up in decent numbers starting at 11 and they opened just after 1. Guessing it was a bit busier than usual because of Pride and Purpose which they hadn't released in several months.

    Next Friday will be crazy no matter what between EBF and the Super Bowl.

    Yeah but tbf Green lasted through 3 full days at a case pp so people are running out of reasons to line up before opening.

    Going to Tree House for first time this coming Thursday. Will make sure to report back to this thread with heavy criticisms of Nate's procedure based off one visit.

    Also going to be in the area Friday for my first TH visit. Couple questions if someone wouldn't mind answering. Website says the doors open 2pm on Friday but reading around it sounds like that is flexible. Do they open before their advertised time if the lines are long enough? Also do you think a target time of 1pm is good enough to find myself in the first 200-300 people in line with all that's going on that weekend? Thanks in advance, I'm going to a concert in Worcester Thursday night and staying over. So I can adjust my arrival time fairly easy. Willing to wait in line for awhile if needs be. Just wondering if someone could give me what they think is a good arrival time for this Friday to try to score max amount of cans. Thanks again

    I don't think they open early unless the weather is bad (like the snow storm we had a few weeks ago) or when they post updated hours on the on tap page (like a couple of Fridays ago).

    You should be fine. Might not get a spot in the upper lot, but that'll be the worst of it. You might even luck out since Extreme Beer Fest is this weekend and a bunch of people will probably be preoccupied.

    I would usually get there around 12-12:30 on a Friday, but, like I said, 1 should be fine.

    Stocking up this week for the SuperBowl will keep the place pretty busy this week, if I had to guess

    They’ve opened early every Friday this month, and I’d be surprised if that streak didn’t go back quite awhile. They were open at 1 this past Friday fwiw. Would be shocked if they aren’t open by 1 this Friday.

    Advising people that it might be lighter crowds because of EBF, especially when it’s the Friday before the Super Bowl, seems like a terrible idea.

    There's a FB group (TreeHouseBrewCoLineUpdates) where you can see past posts of how early people get there and when they open. So last Friday (busier than usual since they dropped P&P) they opened at 1:02pm, but even around 10:39am there were about 15 people already waiting in the lower lot. If you have time to kill and want to definitely be in the upper lot, I'd recommend getting there before 11:45am. But then you'd end up waiting about 2 or so hours...

    But of course if you wait until like 3pm you'd probably be able to walk in and out.

    I got to Treehouse this past Friday at 12:25, and there was still plenty of parking in the upper lot. Like someone posted, they opened just after 1:00, and I had cans in-hand less than 30 minutes later.

    This is why I'm surprised it was so mellow last week. Great selection of rotational beers and no lines - why wait until this week? Is it the whole shelf turd preoccupation?

    Kinda wish I had gone last week. Unfortunately the lineup was every beer I've already had. And I've only had 5 different tree house beers total. Basically impossible for that to happen again. I'll endure the Hazebros and profiteers this week for some sexy suds.

    Thanks for the answers I guess I should plan on waiting in line for a bit Friday with the Super Bowl and EBF going on. Just hope to be able to get a full allotment as I don't make it down that way often.

    At this point if you show up 1/2 hr before close on a Wed or Thur what are the chances of getting shut out?
