    Admittedly not the biggest Cambridge Brewing fan even though I live right next door, but this is probably the best beer I've had from them. Bright Size Life collab with Jester King. Blueberries, lemon, mildly tart, dry finish, wine grapes. Very nice.

    Not sure if this has been addressed on any of the forums on here, but here is the Go Fund Me page for the electrician who was injured in the accident at Trillium earlier this week. Amazing how quickly the beer industry can swoop in and help out someone in need.

    Small IL brewery. Une Annee makes great fruited sours (and now supposedly passable hazy IPAs) and Hubbard's Cave puts out a bunch of decent adjunct stouts. They are two sides of the same entity a la Jack's Abbey/Springdale or Lost Abbey/Port or Side Project/Shared.

    Since I don't have a specific ISO, would anyone local to Boston be interested in doing an IPA swap with me (SF/Bay Area)? Nothing crazy, just looking to try some interesting locals I can't get here!

    Question for you fine fellas.

    Wife and I do a trek up to Vermont each year and this year, on the return, we're gonna swing through Mass. Tree House, Trill and I was thinking Jack's Abby as well.

    What's the word on visiting Jack's? It will be a Thursday evening. Will it be crazy busy? Is the area decent? What about spending the night in/around Framingham?

    I've been to both the new TH spot and Trill (Canton) before, but last time it was more or less a drive by, so I'm trying to figure out the visiting Jack's and staying overnight aspect more than anything.

    It’s a quiet street in Framingham and Springdale is connected, lots of on street parking along the whole street and a full lot in the back so that’s never been a problem. JA does get pretty full for dinner but if for some reason there’s a crazy wait you can always head to Springdale and order food from Jacks to bring upstairs. Lots of extra table space up there. I think the longest I’ve waited was ~20 mins but we just stood at the bar and had a beer while waiting

    Make sure you visit Exhibit A while in framingham as well, it’s in the old Jacks Abby spot. I live like 20 min from the ‘Ham I’ll buy you a drink

    By any chance, is anyone heading to/from Treehouse tomorrow from Boston that would be up for taking two passengers? We’d happily split gas and buy you a beer for your troubles! We’re trying to figure out some way to visit while in town without an enormous Lyft round trip.

    Anyone in the Cambridge/Somerville area rent wine storage space that they'd recommend?

    Has anyone been to Zwanze day at Lord Hobo? Any idea how early we’ll need to show up to get in?

    I used to go when I lived down the street, 2012-13. By 2013, you wouldn't get in if you got in line after 9:30-10AM. Many people there in the 7AM hour. That was years ago, but I doubt it's any better today. They still don't ticket?
