So was there a common thread with the DENNIS System beers?
Haven't been able to get over in a few weeks. Anyone try the Demon Barber?
Me that was excellent beer.
Long awaited return of Lil' Shimmy Ye' cans... nice!!
I would guess Sunday. They were canning yesterday per instagram.
Nothing on their Instagram about canning....last update is 5/24
It was an instagram story they shared unfortunately so its gone now.
Confirming I also saw this. I would think Sat/Sun for the cans.
agreed - last 2-3 times have been Sunday noon release... see no reason for that to change. I think they mentioned somewhere this batch is coming from one of the new 15bbl fermenters, so there should be a lot more to go around assuming they can it all... though maybe save some for draught?
If only they started selling kegs
Finally got over. Had a Demon Barber. Very glad they’re making a low abv English Pale Ale. It’s a touch grainy, but love the variety.
Foggiest Notion is drinking realllllllll nice.
At Twin Elephant cans are not sold out yet. Drinking MAC Mittens nice AIPA .
had both mac mittens and foggiest notion today, enjoyed both - maybe give the nod to mac mittens if I had to pick... pretty quiet aroud 1:15-1:30, wonder if they sold out..
No need to chase beer in NJ anymore which is nice!
Just left the brewery with a 4 pack of LIL Shimmy Ye they still have a few cases left and it's still only a week old.
Funny the way hype works. Twin Elephant is killing it and cranks out a variety of tasty beer in a very busy part of NJ. Yet they didn’t sell of Lil shimmy, a delicious and low ABV summer type beer. Yet Troon regularly sells out the same amount of beer within an hour or two in the middle of nowhere every week.
Does Troon allow drinkers to buy more than 1 4 pack,? Even to day that was all you could buy at TE.
Troon does Crowlers, I've seen 3pp releases but they're very rare so its the same amount of beer. Personally I actually think TE is making just as good hoppy beers and you can actually drink them without a major hassle.
Exactly the point I was making. And I like Troon but the only time I’ve had their beer this past year was when I ate at Brick Farm Tavern.
I've never been to Troon and just visited their web site for the 1st time. Very different operating plan than Twin Elephant to say the least.
Not necessarily a bad thing IMO either. I enjoy the no-hassle for cans now. I think they'd mentioned they didn't get the yield they thought they would off the new tanks. Will be interesting to see what happens when they start getting that larger package yield.
I suspect they'd move to a Sat release to try to sell thru cans in the same weekend... that, along with upping allotments will prob double the pace of sales...
Doubt they will move to Sat. because of parking. All they would have to do is increase the allotments. I was told that lots of buyers would buy a case if they could. I guess that means their beer is considered trade bait by some drinkers.
Can drop Friday at 7pm, split the megahertz, 2 4pks pp.
I doubt any of those make it to Sunday.
Is this the first drop they’ve done 2 packs per person?
As noted, yep. But the last batch is shimmy didn’t sell out right away, and this is 50% more cans (61 vs 40 cases) so I can see why they’d do that. Still wondering is if this is max can yield from the new fermenters?
Any know if there are any cans left?
Hope they make it till Sunday
At Twin Elephant there was 7 cases leftover from yesterday. There are only 5 now!
Has anyone tried Poison the Well yet? I had a pour yesterday while waiting for the can sale to begin and it is extraordinary! It's one of the best Milk Porters I've had - it stands toe to toe with Kane's Evening Bell. In fact, I think it's better. Lots of milk chocolate, coffee, coconut, and even a hint of dark fruit. The mouth feel is amazingly thick and creamy. It drinks like a Stout. I feel like going back today for another pour.
Had a pour last week. Super sweet and heavy. Agree with all your tasting notes!
I asked Cindy that yesterday. She is sure they can get it up close to 80.
Cans all sold out, unfortunately
Hey guys sorry it has been awhile since we have reached out the summer event schedule jumped right on top of us. Man is it hot out there but that is what drinking cold suds during the summer nights so enjoyable. We got the outdoor beer garden rocking with a couple new umbrellas for the spool seating areas to help with some shade and hopefully in the very near future will have some split AC units up in running for inside the taproom. This weekend we have 3 fresh drops one of which is a new beer for us. To start today we have fresh batches of "True Believers" and the new beer "Galloping Hill". "True Believers" is a 7.3% ABV American IPA that is eminently drinkable, clean malt guts, baptized by a belly to belly to belly suplex of Citra, Mosaic & Cascade. Notes of orangina, ripe honeydew melon (halved, seeds removed), sparkling grapefruit and cantaloupe syrup. "Galloping Hill" is a 6.6% ABV hoppy Belgian Blonde that got a pleasant 3 lb / bbl mauling of Lemondrop, Saaz, Loral & Sabro. Ever and anon roaming over Belgian pilsner malt, crystal oats and wheat. Dry, refreshing and unfiltered. Herbal, floral and subtly fruity. Notes of lemon, light dough, plum, slight melon, white grape, pear. Finally, on Saturday we will be tapping a fresh batch our Coffee Milk Stout "Diamonds & Pearls". The swag and panache of floor malted Maris Otter, chocolate, and roasted barley malts. Oats and lactose add a little soul and the joie de vivre…a blend of Homestead Coffee Roasters (Upper Black Eddy, PA) artisan beans. This round a mix of Columbian and Guatemalan Bourbon, 3/4 of which was soaked in Bucks County’s own Hewn Spirit Bourbon barrels at Homestead for 30 days prior to roasting and then conditioning in harmonious milk stout. Robust flavors of baker's chocolate, toasted almond, caramelized bourbon, coffee, milk chocolate and honey.
We got a really cool event coming up that Cindy is going to be repping hard at called "Beer Without Beards"Hopculture & Yakima Chief Hops. Roll through to crush some great beers with us and say hi.
