    Is Treehouse still a mess to go to?

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    Anyone tried the Lenny’s RIPA ? Fantastic, but they stopped distributing it here. Might be making a road trip to pick up a few cases if it’s available there.

    just got back from a friends thanksgiving that was mostly about beer, with the Marty of my friends hosting.  Some highlights:

    Long live beerworks IPA (Providence) if you’re down here, worth checking out. West side near Federal Hill

    Dogfish Pennsylvania Tuxedo- fucking fantastic, tastes like camping (I no rite good about beer, just try it)

    Otter Creek Free Flow IPA- closest thing to Heady I’ve had that wasn’t Heady

    Revival Brewery White Electric coffee stout- a bit spiccy for a coffee stout, but delicious

    Wasn’t Citradelic a “tangerine IPA” prior?  Or am I getting my brands confused?

    I’ll freely admit I’m a simpleton when it comes to beers. I’m really liking Sam Adams’ Hopscape.

    I’ve been in Ghana and Togo this past week. Been drinking foreign Guinness that is brewed in each country. 7.5% abv. Maybe this is everywhere but it is new to me. Hoo boy.

    Also had a special African Guinness on that was 5.5% abv with a hint of citrus.

    Trillium’s PM Dawn is an absolute beast. Stout with coffee, 9.2% abv and remarkably drinkable.

    My wife is heading to Burlington VT in a couple of weeks. Anything I should ask her to get (she already knows to get sip of sunshine and heady topper). She’s going to ask the client she’s visiting to do some shopping for her ahead of time.

    Sierra Nevada recall.

    Thankfully, no Celebration was involved.

    I noticed that the 12 pack I got in the last week was bottled on November 23. I hope that means it will last a bit.

    how’s Trillium Brewery? Any particulars you’d recommend?  Per their website the closest place I can get it is Yankee spirits in Attleboro, worth the drive?

    I don’t think they’ve delivered to stores in quite awhile, pretty close to when they started canning.

    They’re fantastic, and the brewery is easy in and out, if you’re going on a Saturday there may be a line, but normally it’s nothing. They’re of the same quality of Tree House, right in the new school NE or Vermont IPA vein but the beers aren’t terribly similar. The stouts and Belgian styles are equally as good as their IPAs.

    Optimally I’d start with Fort Point Pale Ale and Congress Street, their normal ‘street series’ IPAs all flow from there. But everything is good.

    In a related note, I had my first beer in 5 months following surgery forcing a hiatus, sorry Brian it wasn’t lung cancer.

    It’s excellent. Congress St and Fort Point are popular. I go to the Canton brewery so I am not sure what they fully distribute, but the store likely has those two. The brewery does a lot of versions of their regular beers, you might find them in bombers at the store.

    [EDIT] I liked Mettle in the non-IPA division.

    I guess they don’t distribute.

    While in Richmond went to Triple Crossing Brewery. That’s a damn good place. I’ve had a half of dozen beers from there and everything was really good to excellent. Recommend stopping there if you are ever in Richmond.

    We’ve hit this really great point where local breweries exist for everyone, where I still like Sierra Nevada and Harpoon but the locals make more than I could ever drink. Admitedly I have Jacks abby but the point stands, delicious beer by people in your neighborhood, its finally here cheers!

    #93646

    No.. they do a drop at a store in Portland every month or so. Going to Rhode Island over Memorial Day weekend.. hope to swing and some point

    Can confirm.  Clever Girl is fantastic.

    Virginia has so many good breweries now.  Commonwealth (VA Beach), 3-Notch’d (C’ville and Richmond) and Ocelot (Dulles) are all top notch.

    Chico, do you know anything about the Rhode Island Brew Bus? Is there a good location to stay in Providence near some brewpubs or beer bars?

    Looking at the website it looks like all the meeting points for the bus are inconvenient to Providence – (downtown Westerly, Sons Of Liberty in SK, “near the Jamestown Bridge”?) The hilton downtown is right across the street from Trinity Brewhouse, about a 10 minute walk from Long Live Beerworks (worth checking out) and right by the highway so a few minutes drive to Pawtucket (Foolproof, Bucket brewery)  Other places are closer to URI (Proclamation, Whalers, etc) and more of a drive.

    On Easter I opened up a 2015 Founder’s KBS. I think I kept it well, basement with no light. I found it a bit too boozy. It had some nice flavors otherwise.

    A friend just came back from Chicago, brought a couple of fantastic beers-

    Pipeworks Ninja vs Unicorn double IPA, one of the smoothest double IPAs I’ve ever had (8.0)

    3 Floyds Brewery Zombie Dust American Pale Ale.  Quite simply one of the best beers I’ve ever had.  100 score on Beer Advocate and can’t argue.  Perfect.

    #100113

    Pipeworks has some good stuff… half acre is making some good beers too . Just got a drop of moonraker out of cali. Haven’t had a bad beer yet from the bunch. Real smooth.

    Hoping to get to tilted barn in a few weeks. I hear they are putting out great beers

    John Harvards Framingham Brando is practically Tree House Alter Ego if you can’t get out to TH.

    Last week I got a sampler, then full pour, then 32 oz growler and it was near spot on. So I went back, got a 64 oz this week, it gets a bit hot in the 4th pint, its not an exact replicant. If you’re drinking less than 4 pints, in a triple blind I couldn’t distinguish this from TH Alter Ego … And this was the first 64 I tried to down myself in maybe 3 years, yknow for science, so for all practical purposes it’s TH quality.

    Go buy some as I’m sure the brewer will soon move to some 18th century garconniere in East Bumfvcvk MA where once a week you can buy 1 can after standing in line for 7 hours

    The other beers are just as good for their style, I mean Christ after enjoying all the ones worth trying last week I branched out today and took home a 32 of their Belgian Wit and actually thought 12 ounces were good enough to drink before using the rest in a marinade. Do I wish I got the WC IPA or the Coffee Porter, or the excellent Pils, or the Saison even in that baby growler? Well yeah if course, but I could drink 12 oz of Belgian Wit from there an accomplishment in itself.

    Picked up a couple from Greater Good, Pulp and Mt Greylock.

    They bill themselves as the first all Imperial brewery. Pulp I’ve had before it’s quite a nice DIPA not really NEIPA flavors are close, very tropical, mouthfeel and appearance way off, but it is quite a nice beer. Greylock … Hoo boy has that DFH 120 hop candy impact, I bet I would like it after or better yet crack it open while shoveling in Jan, then finish it in front of the fireplace as I try to work my shoulders into a semblance of working order.

    If you see Greater Good and know you have one of those “honey do” waiting at home, then get it. If you’re not facing an afternoon of being torn apart then it is too much.
