How much were the cans of Haze and Lights on?
Haze $4.30 and Lights On $3.30
Bright w/Citra canned today for tomorrow! I really enjoyed that variation, and I'm not a huge fan of regular Bright. Might check them out Thursday and grab a growler of Bright w/Citra along with whatever can they drop that day.
$4.05/can. Thought they usually charged $4.30 for a "double". Admittedly, 7.8% is borderline but they do categorize it as such.
Local business journal had a nice article on Tree House this morning which shares some insight into the Charlton move.
About how often is Green released?
At least every other week. Here's a spreadsheet of all of their releases: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zWyBt7I2feobTsX5GcZvm91pn3fxuxEu-cI8oodXBi8/edit
Hey guys, sorry if this is a repeat of a previous question or on a different thread. I'm flying in to Boston in June, is there any way to get to Tree House from Boston other than renting a car and making the 2 hour drive?
Wow, thank you!
Not unless u line up some kind of trading partner.
You could take the commuter rail as far west as it goes and uber from there? Not really feasible but if for some reason you couldn't rent a car it's theoretically possible.
TBC this is very unlikely to be practical in any sense; you are talking about a 40-45 minute drive from Worcester to Monson and then having your driver wait at Tree House for you. Depending on the day and time you could be in and out or end up in a long line and you'll have very little advance warning as to which one it is. Then you get to drive back to Worcester and wait until the late inbound commuter rail schedule aligns and you have a ride back to the city.
In summary--rent a car, set up a trade, or find someone who's planning on driving out that day and is willing to let a fellow BA tag along; please don't try this.
Haze cans today, to go along with the Bright w/Citra from yesterday...very solid can offering! At the very least I know I'll be able to get both in growlers tomorrow, but I'm still going to hold out hope that they don't completely sell out today.
Well there's the answer to a commonly asked question
“By Saturday, there is no beer left to put on a truck and bring somewhere. We brew 340 barrels of beer a week, and we sell every single drop of it every single week.”
17,680 barrels a year assuming they take no weeks off, or don't brew any extra some weeks.
What time have they been opening doors on Wednesday lately?
I'm assuming by barrel, they mean 15.5 gallon barrels? That would equate to roughly 1,600 cases per week of 16oz cans, allowing for some spillage. Does that make sense in terms of quantity? Or, are they full barrels and they are selling >3,000/ cases week?
EDIT: Just answered my own question, they tap out at 13,000 barrels...capacity-wise.
1 bbl is approximately 31 gallons
ha, my car is in the the picture of the line.
Just a heads up, but last Thursday's release is wrong. It says 3 cans of Green...should be 7.
It's his awesome spreadsheet.
Haven't been in a while, planning a trip up on Friday. What's the story with growlers these days? From what I can tell it's basically two per person, depending upon what they have. Is this the case? Any reason to bring more?
I drove out yesterday and was shocked to not be directed to park across the street and then to see no line at all around 1:45. I was in and out with my cans in under a minute and when I was leaving a small line had formed. Thank god because it was cold and windy out at the time. Also stopped in BT' Smokehouse and had a Bright w Citra and possibly the best pulled pork sandwich I've ever had. A must stop.
Not really, especially on Friday. I guess it couldn't hurt to toss a 3rd in the car just in case, but it's been a little while since you were able to get 3 per person.
haven't gone for fills in a while, but i had no idea it was down to 2pp. Didn't it used to be 5+? I have so many TH 750s at this point...hope i'll get to use them all at once sometime in the future.
Yeah, things have gotten a little wild over the past year... I'm sure when Charlton opens you'll be able to fill more
Yep, it was 5 a while back, then it dipped to 3, and then it dropped again to 2 semi-recently. As of late, I can't remember seeing more than 2 beers on tap all that many times. I love going on Thursdays because I can get growlers of what I missed on Wednesdays, plus the newly canned stuff from that day...
I actually went for the first time in over a year last friday with three growlers in hand...got there around 6 and they only had green on for fills, 1pp! By the time my number came up it was kicked. At the same time, I got a full can allotment. I was expecting the exact opposite.
Seems like they're canning a lot more beer than kegging to get it out the door faster.
I think the low growler limit is encouraging more people to get them, since it's so much quicker to get people through the line when they can only get 2 per person. I remember times of getting there not all that long after doors opened, and still waiting an hour or more to get my growlers. The way it is now, I barely have time to run the cans to the car before I'm waiting to hear my name called. I love it.
Unfortunately no. Gotta hitch a ride with someone or rent a car.
First off, thanks everybody for your input. I've already talked myself into renting a car for a day and making the trek. One last question. Are the lines at open shorter on Friday vs Saturday? Trying to make this as easy as possible, but who am I kidding? I'm gonna wait regardless.
Question for the regulars. What are the lines typically like on Thursdays? How long would they be say at 3:00 or 3:30? Or more specifically, if you arrived at 3:30 how long before you'd be cashed out with your growlers/cans on a typical Thursday?
Trying to figure out how likely it is to cash out at TH and still make it to Canton before Trillium closes at 7:30...
(not really possible to arrive much before 3:00)
Edit: in case it matters, I should say that I will be there on Thursday April 6)
Canton is what, 90 minutes away? Closer than that? You'd be totally fine getting there at 3-3:30. Probably would be in and out in well under an hour, although I haven't been on a Thursday in a while.
I guess the unknown is how long I would be waiting in line if I arrive at 3:00...
Edit: and yes it is 90 minutes away although likely dealing with some Boston traffic at that time too.
It would depend if you were going for cans only or growlers as well, but either way I think you'd be fine. Even if you allot 2 hours from Monson to Canton during rush hour, there's no way if you get there at 3 that you wouldn't be leaving by 5:30.
Very Hazy 2pp today according to the line update facebook page....
Cans of Very Hazy!!!
If you can, I would recommend going Friday. While they have been making an effort to have cans available on Saturday it is by no means a guarantee. 1-2 beers are generally canned Friday, whereas there is no canning on Saturdays.
Will very hazy last until tomorrow? Very green lasted until the next day last week
Thank you very much!!!!!!!
More than likely if 2pp is the limit
