    Just had a pour at Town Hall. Didn't expect much but I was blown away. Thought it kicked Jim's twisted ass!

    Wow, that's one that I was going to skip since I didn't like the sound of it. Damn. I wonder if they will have it on tomorrow.

    My order:
    1 - Buffalo Bock
    1.5 - Tumaltuous Rare
    2 - Twisted Jim
    3 - Wee Jack

    All have been great, imo.

    Really interested in the barrelled DIPA tonight.

    To anyone that was down last night - do they have anything left on tap? Or has everything kicked the night they released it?

    It was pretty quiet when i was there at 10pm and I got a glass around 1030pm after going through Wee Jack and Twisted Jim. I would imagine that it would still be on tap tonight.

    Cheers

    Cool. I'm not heading down tonight but thought maybe I'd try to shoot over tomorrow morning. Beat the crowds. Would really like to try the Tumaltuous & the IPA they are releasing tonight.

    I have been there twice this week, and both nights still had the previous nights beer on tap.

    I am hoping to try it today. Especially since I traded my bottle away before the release! (I did get a major want for it, though)

    Sorry to rain on the parade, but I thought it was just OK, especially for a wheatwine, one of my favorite styles. But the base-beer was just OK for me too. Not bad, just not up to the standards of the previous three contenders.

    I had a pour at midnight... so it was still there. I'd imagine it would last.

    I have been really impressed by all so far, but I agree with DoctorRocks order so far. Buffalo, Temultuous, Jim, Wee. I am also intrigued for the barrel aged DIPA tonight. Going to hit Steel Toe before heading down.

    Just had some Tumaltuous and Twisted Jim this afternoon. Is this http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1177/75229 the correct profile to review it on? I'm not sure because none of the previous reviews talk about the bourbon which was pretty noticeable to me.

    The Tumaltuous Rare is the beer that you have linked aged in Eagle Rare barrel.

    The barrel monkey is my favorite so far. Prominent hops AND smooth bourbon. Yes they go together! Second favorite has been the buffalo bock. Then tumaltuous rare then wee jack. Thank you Town Hall!

    I just called them. 5pm for bottles, tapping the keg at 6pm

    I'm shooting for a 5pm arrival or a 9pm arrival to avoid the madness!

    Btw - I'll trade a Tumaltuous Rare or Wee Jack for a Twisted Jim, Buffalo Bock or Barrel Monkey if anyone is interested

    I could have sworn I saw Tumaltuous rare on here yesterday when I tried to add a picture. I wonder if someone got overzealous and combined the two beers, or if no one ever added it to begin with (and I got overzealous with adding the pic).

    Tumaltuous. Very good. Much better than the regular.

    Barrel Monkey. Amazing. Wish they growlered these beers again this year...

    younger, did you aquire the size 11 you were hoping to get? also, cannot agree more about how good barrel monkey was, I figured it would be good, but completely blew away my expectations.

    Tough call as to which was best. My favorite was probably the Buffalo Bock. The others were all great, though!

    I gotta agree and say, everything was great -- favorites were Tumaltuous, Buffalo, and Monkey... also, the whole week was run extremely well by the TH crew. Cheers to their hard work, it is much appreciated!

    Apparently their keg got shook up so they were not pouring Czar Jack when we got there at 9. Really disappointed I didn't get to try it. Anyone have it?

    As of noon Sunday Wee Jack, Twisted Jim, Tumaltuous Rare, and Czar Jack are still on. The Czar Jack is fantastic, as always.

    From the ticketing to the tapping of Czar Jack, the staff of Town Hall ran things as well as I could have expected. Cheers to them!

    I unfortunately was not able to get tastes of the Monkey or the Czar Jack, I am hoping to go there for lunch on Monday if any one wants to meet for a beer or two. I agree with other people's sentiments, I am kicking myself for only buyin one Bock. Great weekly event, was nice seeing most of the same faces there every day.
