    Big ups to Kaptain Jimmy’s in Agawam, which trusts the customer to be able to read the beer menu and see the Smuttynose Baltic Porter is 9% ABV, and still ask if you want the 16 oz, or the 22 oz size. #notulipglass

    Jesus. Most places won’t sell a 16oz pour of 9% abv.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    True enough. I chose discretion and ordered the pint. It’s the people who brew Opa Opa who own the restaurant, and they will serve their own ‘A-10 Warthog Double IPA’ (10.5%) to you in the big glass. I would advise against that.

    Tree House is building a place in Charlton.

    Well, that dream has gotten much bigger in the past year: Lanier and partners Damien Goudreau, Jonathan Weisbach, and Dean Rohan announced today that Tree House is building a brand-new, 45,000 square foot production facility in Charlton. The company purchased the 70-acre plot of land, and it plans to break ground on the new building later this spring.

    The new space, designed in conjunction with Austin Design, Inc., is five times the size of its current home, with a “theoretical capacity” of 125,000 barrels per year. For context, last year’s move gave it a 7,000-barrel capacity.

    New brewery taking over the old Jack’s Abby spot in Framingham, “Exhibit A”, the brewer is great, used to be at Offshore when they were a destination spot, then was the first brewer at Mayflower

    Cool to hear. Taking over the space and the equipment is a big deal. From the article I read, he will start out with a canning line. Plus, he eliminates a lot of risk. Medusa in Hudson had trouble setting up its brewery and was about 9 months late opening up. I was worried it would never open.

    Moved across the street to a bigger place with a restaurant.

    Have the capacity to become the largest brewer in MA. Their tall cans are now out.

    Meanwhile at Jack’s Abby’s old location, someone is moving in to begin brewing using JA’s old equipment.

    Trillium Big Sprang  :smile:

     

    My place got a big shipment of Trillium Thursday, they had about 6 bottles left today at 3PM.  Crazy.

    Nopoint would know, but there seems to be some efficiency in the contract brewing. I got to think labor costs in Rochester are substantially lower than RI

    It’s like renting an apartment versus buying a house. Think of all the variables that go into that decision, particularly when that Rochester plant can’t use all of their capacity, so it’s like a glut of rental properties, they’re looking for people to rent from them.

    The Genny plant hired another 60 full time employees. Must be doing something right.

     

    Narragansett Lovecraft (brewed by Genny) is a bit of all right

    Local Craft Beer Cellar gets their Trillium delivered on Thursday. I got their last bottle of Ft Point at 4:30 today.
    So good.

    This was the Mosaic.

    Man, that stuff moves.  By tomorrow, they’ll be down to a handful of bottles.

    It’s a fantastic beer, high enough you get your money worth, not so high you fall over after drinking 7. And the FPPA leads to the Street series that leads to the double IPAs

    And now Melcher Street, which is still an IPA but totally different. Their beer game is tight.

    :lol: my buddy was just showing me some outside growlers for other breweries (foolproof, proclamation) that this place (with his permission) put their stickers all over for when they are returned to their brewery of origin

    They’re required to have the growlers labelled. The stickers seem to qualify but most places won’t risk being accused of selling mislabelled alcohol.

    CT is the only local state to make it at all reasonable for the consumer.
