    I am not sure when or where the most recent comment by nate or someone credible was made regarding specifically late season maple syrup. If you are implying that theres no way I could know when good morning will be brewed, then you you are 100% right. I just like to speculate, and I think there is enough info out there to make an educated guess.

    Experiences vary, but I went to TH the last 2 Wednesdays between 3:30 - 4:30 and my wait was zero. Walked to table, bought cans, paid, walked out.

    What do these hundreds of people in line at Treehouse and Bissel today do for work? It eats up half a god damn day, and my work is pretty flexible. Shocked if people use vaca days just for beer. It just amazes me how many folks can get to a brewery and stand in line for hours mid day on a weekday. It's impressive to see that many folks out.

    I assume they have an Ebay store for Tree House beer where they just sell the cans online.

    I can attest to the ability of waiting in a line on a noon on a Wednesday. I'm a Nurse, so I have a handful of days off during the week. The stars aligned today, as my Wife was off as well and kept our 10 month old busy while I made the trek. Drinking my first Lights On now!
    However, I can't speak for the others, because as much as us Nurses love booze, it was definitely not all Nurses in line.

    Some people live nearby, some are from out of state on big overnight brewery visit trips, some take a vacation day. I did today. I left my house at 10:30 hit Treehouse, Wormtown, Julio's and did some house errands and got home by 2 and since then I've been on my porch its 60 degrees plus 2 days after a snowstorm. I've got nothing to do but drink beer, read and play on the internet.

    What could possibly be a better use of a vacation day? Go shopping for khakis?

    I work from 5:30 - 2:30, so yeah, some of us don't work 9 - 5 jobs. I have to get up at 4:30 every day and go to bed by 9. I'm lucky that my job makes this possible :slight_smile: even if I do wake up before the sun rises...

    The fact that he's successfully sold several auctions and has another up currently would seem to indicate so! Craziness.

    We also got a flyover from a C130 right before opening today, I'm sure orchestrated by the Tree House crew in honor of Lights On and not just a regularly scheduled flight

    No, pilots have to be lucid to fly so that's an obvious sign that Lucid with Peaches bottles are finally dropping tomorrow. I'll be lining up at 6 AM, and I advise everyone else in this thread to do so as well :wink:

    Wait, back up the truck, what do you mean shocked???!! I've been reading the TH threads for months, if you TH die hards had not been fawning all over the place about TH, I'm certain the lines would be much, much smaller. But once the word gets out…forget it. I was finally able to swing a day off, yes a vacation day, left home at 1:15 and arrived at 2:15. Got the full allotment and am patiently waiting for the weekend. What i can't get over is the contrast between the rural, bucolic area, then BANG! Behind the barn is a line of 100 people, patiently waiting in line. It's like turning a corner, walking into the kitchen and watching your grandmother biting the heads off snakes….

    After my first ever trip to TH, and trying my first two ever TH beers, this is my synopsis: Julius=Craveable, Lights On= Crushable, Both= Awesome!

    Looks like 1600+ through the doors yesterday. I was shocked when I rolled up at 3:15 and there was a pretty solid line. Still only took 15 minutes though. Surprised so many came out, but I forgot that this is a holiday weekend.

    Agreed, got there at 3:30p to the same solid line. Usually pretty quiet mid afternoon. Line still moved fast.

    I was a bit surprised that they had Lights On at 8pp (instead of 6pp) given only 3 canning runs this week and the holiday weekend. Not sure if they are trying to sell out of cans quickly in order to limit the crowds tomorrow, given that many people have the day off...

    Which is interesting to me, for two reasons: one, it's one of their most regularly-available beers; and two, Green is so damned good it puts Dr. J to (a slight bit of) shame.

    I live/work in northeastern Mass, but have a project in the Hartford area. I schedule my jobsite visits and meetings for Wednesdays as best I can. Leave jobsite around 1, get to TH around 2, send a few emails from line, back in the car by 2:30, back at the office by 4 to do paperwork for an hour. Repeat. It's a little bit of a bummer that I haven't had a TH growler fill in probably a year now, and that I've "only" had Eureka, Green, Julius, Lights On, AE, etc, but what can you do. I trade a little, and usually don't max out on Eureka or Lights On.

    It's a Quadruple Shot brewed with maple leaf ashes used to draw crosses on people's heads and filtered through the Shroud of Turin. Also fish, somehow.

    People are already lining up at the Charlton brewery* for it, in anticipation of the 2018 release. One guy was complaining it wasn't as good as the last release.


    * it's a medium sized oak tree right now, but some day..

    Tree House releases every limited release silently. It could be next week or next year. No way to predict what they will release.

    I believe all the limited releases (King Julius, Very Green, etc) are $4.50 per can

    Yeah we'll probably see it again this summer (not talking about cans) assuming they have another party but anything other than that would just be a complete guess.
