    I haven't made it into MTH this week, but I heard the Buffalo Bock was outstanding on Monday. Any reports on the Wee Jack?

    Hello people!

    I too have been at town hall each night. Buffalo Bock eas outstanding, but the Wee Jack was stellar! I'll be there at 6pm to pick up my bottles and stay for a sample.

    I've been there every night and I will be there tonight after beer school at Republic, so somewhere between 630 and 7. I am a very tall fellow with shortish brown hair with a grey hoodie and a green down vest. Say hi if you see me, I have yet to meet any TC BAs.

    Heading down to Town Hall about 4:30. Willl be in the Firestone XV hoodie. The Wee Jack was stellar, but I give the edge to Buffalo Bock so far.

    I saw a sputtering Buffalo Bock at the bar... not sure if that meant the end of a keg or not. Get it if you can it is GOOD.

    Buffalo Bock blew about 7PM tonight. That was one fine beer, & a great surprise to boot.

    Hello Twin Cities. Been at Town Hall every day so far and I would say the Buffalo Bock is the best, with Twisted Jim in 2nd. Really excited for Czar Jack.

    Agreed. Honestly, I didn't expect much but the barrel flavors came forward so well, especially when the beer was relatively colder. It was like drinking good hard liquor without the burn.

    I was at Northgate in Blaine the other day and they still has 4 packs of Wet for $17.99. I would think that would have lost its ooomph being this old.
