    so the "Shop" page on the TH website says both 2L and 750 glass cost $6 apiece. As someone who has yet to darken the door at Tree House, is this the case?

    I've only ever been charged $5 for the 750's.

    As much as I'd love a growler or two of Julius, I'm hoping it kicks tonight so tomorrow's not a complete shit-show. What have the waits been like on non-Julius days at the new location?

    Anywhere from 5 min to 45 min.

    They're horrible... better stay safe at home and leave the Julius to those of us who can get there safely.

    Julius kicked tonight right at the end. Green, Percolation and Snowtober are on for tomorrow.

    Watch out for snow drifts on E. Hill rd. Current drifts caused the road to go down to one lane in certain spots. Should be plowed by tomorrow morning though.

    Julius tomorrow. I may venture out to Tree House tomorrow!

    Weird question: Can I pre-pay for my growlers today and then pay for the beer tomorrow? Is that even feasible?

    People do show up around 11, put in their order slip and if the wait is too long, they leave and come back later to pick up their growlers.

    I know it's not the right forum but if anyone wants to set up an IP trade for focal or petit I should be heading out tomorrow. Have daybreak/Arthur also. Just looking for out of distro stouts, etc.

    From a few minutes ago (Twitter, 3:35 pm):

    @TreeHouseBrewCo: Green well accounted for in the queue. Roughly 75% of the Julius accounted for ... May last until 6.

    Headed up to VT on Thursday night and am hoping to snag my first growler of Julius. Will I be able to get any around 7-7:30 and if so, what will the lines be like?

    It will be gone by then. Your'e going to want to be there at LEAST hour earlier. The Julius is whats left over from Saturday. The last time I was there on Thursday after a Saturday release, about 2 weeks ago, they were telling people "Julius would kick soon" at 1715.

    Id say the first 40 people are safe, and then the next 40 are playing a guessing game. There will be 30 there when they open.

    In other news, we'll be opening this Friday evening. 5-8 PM, just like Thursday. This will likely be permanent, assuming we can keep up!

    Imperial Stout Thing was brewed today too, destined for Oak for a good long while.

    Hey guys. . took an inventory on Dr. J before I left the brewery and I figure we have about enough to service 70-80 people buying the limit of 750 MLs. That's a busy Thursday, but definitely not unheard of. Hard to say if it will last. We'll have 5 BBLS of Sap and 10 BBLS of Tornado for Thurs-Sat. . .

    Hopefully. Will be interesting to see how much beer is left at closing on Saturdays.

    This will definitely help the locals who want to get THB but don't want to have to wait an hour-plus on Saturdays. I have noticed a lot of people from Monson checking out the brewery for the first time recently.

    Well oiled machine tonight at THBC. Made the cannonball run from Newton tonight (I know, I know, it's not 4 hours to HF, but well over an hour for a few 750s).
    Arrived at 4:30. It was frigid outside and those there would concur (or maybe not, I'm just a winter pussy). Dean was a trooper collecting the order sheets to the formed line of about 25. Back to my car until 5, then Dean shuttled us into the shop.
    Order was in and no sooner was my name called. Packed up, paid, and back on the road. Home before 7 and Julius in my glass and by 7:30 (Also picked up a Sap 2L with aforementioned Julius, 3x 750).
    Got to meet Nate, formally, the man behind all their beers. The rest of the crew, Dean, goes without saying, and then Damien and Lauren, busting ass to fill the overflow of growlers.
    Super easy visit. Then again I've never had a difficult time at ether location. Get there people. Cheers!

    I got a feeling I will miss out on Julius going tomorrow. Other two beers easily make up for it.

    From their recent Facebook post and the on-tap page on their website, it looks like Julius kicked tonight. Given there was only 5 gallons left, I'm sure it didn't even last for the people that arrived before 5pm.

    11am tomorrow folks. Rise and shine!

    Was there at 5, only about 10 people there at the time, so Julius was still available when I left.
