This is confusing because Australia and New Zealand are not in South America.
Haha, yup.. Southern Hemisphere... I’m an idiot, a drunk idiot at that.
Australian hop harvest I believe starts end of February.
New Zealand looks to be around the same time
Ah, actually I should have been able to figure that out. Simple mistake. Sorry.
I was told they were working with a new batch of galaxy starting in January. No specific statements were made as to the inter workings of the cross hemisphere hop supply chain. I asked the same question to the probrewers forum and they confirmed that in January they were working with a new batch of galaxy.
There are a few factors that effect hops including the temperature they are pellatized at. This in turn effects the alpha acids among other things.
You presume to know a lot without knowing any specifics other than the rotation of the sun. I personally assume to know no knowledge about how long it takes for a hop to go from a bud on a plant to a hop in my beer. I was told the new batch was better and it showed up in January.
Do you have any factual knowledge from your high horse that contradicts this?
A new honey and lactose DIPA, well at least it doesn’t sound too sweet...
BA Macaroon Tuesday?
Super Secret Stairs on for growler fills in Canton, will be my first trip there since before the 'troubles.'
BA Macaroon aged in rum barrels. Interesting. I'm excited to check it out.
Sounds awesome. Not the biggest coconut fan, but the rum barrels will make it all work together
Line updates at either place? I saw the 30 (fp) and 50 (canton) case update just now
Lmao they heard my cries and returned to the fabric label for their Ba stouts
Verdict is still out on regular Macaroon being infected now
Im at Canton on my lunch break. No line, lot of people hanging out and drinking so parking lots full. But retail counter is constant line of about 5 maybe a 3 minute wait.
Was at FP about 30 min ago. No line when I got there about 10pp in line as I was leaving but did see a lot of tril bags on my walk. People prob hitting it during lunch break.
Dat lunchtime rush tho
There was a decent little line to the door at Fort Point, I didn’t get the chance to try it yet but feedback looks pretty good so far
I grabbed a pour at Canton and it was really good.
I find most Trillium stouts to be a little to sweet out of the gate when they are fresh. But this one was very balanced by the barrel, and rum. It was not as sweet as the original. The front is sweet, but not candy sweet, it was raisin or dark fruit sweet and dark chocolate. Its got a little heat, but nothing that would suggest the 15%. The rum barrel was a perfect compliment for this beer, Its blends very well with the coconut in the finish. I really liked it.
Chew that bone @OnlyTheFinest ....
Ride that hype wave @chipawayboy ....
Wonder if they're doing the Fieldtrip again this year? I don't remember what time they announced it but I thought it was around this time last year.
It was a fun long weekend event
Yeah really hoping for the field trip again, last year was incredible and far and away the best lineup of any beer festival I've attended. I'm also hoping the greenway garden has a lot of guest beers again this year.
Am I crazy or have prices at Trillium skyrocketed? I just stopped in for a draft and got a 10 oz Galaxy Cutting Tiles for $9.63 after tax. Almost a dollar an ounce for draft on-site? Wild.
The beer was pretty phenomenal but that price is outrageous.
I guess the question is if you knew the price ahead of time? If so, it doesn't seem all that outrageous since you decided to purchase it.
.63 is for the tax man. $9 for a 10oz pour of a DIPA doesn’t seem that bad.
That price seems pretty reasonable to me, especially given what a decent IPA costs at most bars.
$9 for 10 oz seems excessive considering they’ll sell you a 32 oz growler for $11.
I am going to Trillium for the first time on June 10 and visiting the Fort Point location. After following them on twitter it seems they do a lot of their weekly releases on Cellar Sunday, but generally have to-go beer other days of the week. Can anyone comment? I will be in town on Sunday (at a Red Sox game) and would swing by if that is the only day I can pick up stouts to go. Along those lines, do the stouts sell out quickly on Sundays?
Trillium usually releases a beer every day Mon - Friday and always have beer to go.
The Cellar Sunday that you are seeing are actually past released beers that they hold a couple cases of in their cellar (for either onsite consumption or for foot traffic on cellar sundays). They usually only bring up a handful of cases of the Stouts at 1 per person, and they usually sell out in a couple hours depending on the stout. The pastry stouts (the white lablels with a dessert) are almost always sold out within 2 hours. Night and Day and some of those other ones will hang around longer.
Ft. Point is open at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday so show up at or a little before open and you should be all set.
Looks like they went back to offering 5oz pours for everything on tap in Canton according to Facebook. Great decision because the initial change was a head scratcher to say the least.
Today's Permutation 6.14 sounds great. Straightforward Citra IPA, tempted to snag some. The new Permutation labels are fantastic too.
In-laws live unfortunately close to Trillium so I couldn't help but stop by today. The new citra permutation is good...if you've ever made beer yourself, it has this really raw backbone taste that reminds me of the smell of malts and grains being boiled. And a nice, bright clean hop taste too. Not dusty and muted, or cloyingly sweet like what I've tasted in Trillium this past half year or so.
And since ddh congress was there, I figured why not. Does anyone remember opening the old fort point bombers or growlers and the smell of fresh hops just burst out? Maybe it wasn't as explosive as my brain seems to remember, but opening this can didn't come close to that. Even getting close and smelling didn't bring out much...so I assumed the worst and took a drink. Was very pleasantly surprised. Bright, juicy and super bitter. No hop burn, no dustiness, no over sweetness. And no peanut taste most importantly.
Nice to see you back...wonder if @Sweatybanana is still boycotting ?
@Sweatybanana = @Sweatshirt ?
Looks like his account is gone. Can only assume the Trilluminati finally got him
Good to hear, I was debating picking some up and now I think I will. Sounds similar to that malt company collab Pretzel beer some weeks back. Just a good easy drinker while still potent, no stickiness or residual sweetness to take away from the straight malts/hops.
Wow. That’s sad news
Perhaps he decided to reform his life and stop being unnecessarily douchie all the time?
They had to... he discovered what the " new ferm profile" was.
Seconded on the Perm 6.14, really delicious, easy drinking IPA. Great stuff.
Had a can of Double Pier last night and wasn't too impressed, seemed a bit too thick and boozy for my tastes. Glad they're killing it per usual with most of their Permutations, though
Picked up some trill and TH from an illegal reseller(no judgment, I love this place) near my home earlier this week. Had a can of gurnet lighthouse tonight that had the strong peanut flavor. Good news is that spectacle island is veeeery good and I still have a can of perm 6.14 waiting for me.
Sorry for the interruption, back to your regularly scheduled trill bashing.
