    I find it interesting they're open about the hop bill for their most coveted beer, but won't confirm much for some of the cores.

    First, I'm glad there is someone less focused than I am in shooting video. Second, the line, at least in this situation, isn't even to the shed. I've definitely seen much worse since opening...even when it was freezing.

    First day of can sales was 7/19/17, but they were open to the public the Saturday before.

    Anyone know what the line is like? Trying to figure out what’s true and what is just our favorite twitter users being trolls.

    I thought a bit more about this. I'm certainly not saying that anyone should get angry or upset about someone's beer choice. I'm just saying that the NE Milk IPA is Duran Duran. I like Duran Duran as I find the tunes catchy and marvel at how much soul, if there was any to begin with, the production stripped out of the music during the recording and the mix. The point is the statement you are making while blasting it in your convertible while sipping on a NE Milk IPA (in places where open containers are legal).

    That is interesting. Just list the malt and hops like Trillium.

    so is it a forgone conclusion that whenever TH releases a "slow mover" like Old Man or Trail Magic, chances are a "whale" will be released shortly after to help clear the old(er) stock?

    I also find it interesting. I enjoy Trillium's beer descriptions, noting the hops and malt.
    http://www.trilliumbrewing.com/trillium-double-dry-hopped-melcher-street-ipa

    They're pretty descriptive about Alter/Dopp (Mosaic and Amarillo) but say little about Julius and Haze.

    They've confirmed Galaxy for Green, but not the American hops in it. At least not that I'm aware of.

    Still can’t understand why TH doesn’t consistently give out a line update.
    Seems rude on a day like today.

    I planted the seed for this five months ago! That's gotta be worth an invite for Saturday, right @DigitalNate? :wink:

    [And while we're throwing around inane suggestions, @DigitalNate, how about a Willy Wonka themed 1yr anniversary celebration? Find a golden ticket in your can and get a tour plus a case of Juice Machine!]

    It is. They know it’s a shit show on their property, at least throw out a Tweet about the 2 hr wait. People are probably traveling from Ohio.

    Today Juice Machine was released . . . there is a long line

    Tomorrow there will be another big drop with JM leftover at 2pp or 1pp . . .
    another big line

    There will be long lines for the rest of the month because of the party releases. The week following will have lines for leftover party pours.

    Expect lines till July, then expect lines throughout summer vacation.

    Hope this help with expectations

    I get it. Doesn’t affect me. It’s just not good customer service.

    The silents and secrecy is getting old. It’s lame and juvenile. Grow up and be a respectable brewery. Post what’s for sale and quantities.

    Lines and secrecy build hype. Hype sells beer. The day you can walk in and get a case of Juice Machine and a case of Very Hazy at the same time is the day people stop caring about TH. Don't believe me? Try trading away your VG after they dropped a case last Saturday.

    Couldn't resist. Rolled the dice and made the trip. Line was a full horseshoe of the parking lot. 90min start to finish (reminds me of Monson days). Started out fast then slowed down some near the end--this given a 1:30pm arrival time. Easy parking despite the crowds... they seemed to have nailed that down.

    Almost equally stoked for Bbbrighttt w/ Galaxy as I am for JM. Haven't had either so this is a super treat.

    Starting w/ Sap from the haul. Great beer. Drinking cold straight outta the fridge brings more of the pine resin + grapefruit notes and goes more juicy as it warms. This beer really does cover the full gambit of delicious IPA flavors.
     
  30. TPIR

    TPIR Initiate (100) Jan 29, 2017 Connecticut

    Yeah, because I know on a day where I got Juice Machine, BBBrighttt with Citra, BBBrighttt with Galaxy and Very Green that the first beer I'd have is Sap. Are you ok?

    Is this guy for real? Bad customer service because they don’t tweet line updates? First off, what brewery other than TH actually does that? Second, they actually did tweet line updates, it was just as replies to other tweets. You just have to click on “tweets and replies” to see that. But really their solicitude on Twitter is crazy- they even reply to ppl tweeting at them asking questions about the line and whether they think they’ll run out of cans by 5:30 or whatever. I can’t believe they bother to do that even.

    You can hate on the crazy hype the brewery commands and the insufferable hazebros who cause traffic jams on whatever road that is there on days like today but fuck don’t knock them for their customer service, especially when it comes to their twitter account I mean c’mon man.

    Thankfully the line ripped today- thought it would be 2 hours but ended up being 90 mins- had some good conversations with people around me and was stoked to get some new beers- Bbbright with Citra was underwhelming compared to the original, but still delicious , Bbbright with Galaxy was noticeably different and doper than the OG, Hurricane is a full flavored batch and the best in show of the beers I tried today. Haven't cracked a JM. Didn't buy the rest..

    Ok we are all officially brainwashed if we go in expecting a two hour wait and are happy that we only had to wait 90 minutes. I don't know about you, but I think I'm going to start re-examining my priorities in life. After tomorrow, when I'll be there early to try to score leftover Juice Machine. :slight_smile:

    Not sure and purely speculating. But never had JM so it's worth a try.

    As for what time I'm getting there...I'm in the lower lot now. Kidding.

    That's insane. That should close for FOB, MXY, FF and probably a few others in about half a second. People have lost their minds.
