    I was very excited when they had Suarez guest taps. I had a great time. I'd never been to the farm. The rusticity was off the charts. If you heard the guy with the really loud whistle while the band was playing, that was my dad.

    A great time. That is the epitome of a farm brewery.

    for anyone who's never met Evan or been to the farm, this encapsulates it pretty well.

    I'm trying to get up to Suarez for open tomorrow, and was going to hit Plan Bee on my way back. My gf loves that pickle beer, so I may have to flip that.

    Have they done bottle releases at the new spot yet? Are they still super packed? Because the one and only time I went to the old farm stand it was kind of a shit show, and I walked away empty handed. If thats gonna be the case, then I won't worry about bottles at Plan Bee and just show up later.

    This is their first bottle release at the farm.

    They have a TON of beer there (not sure about the new beers), so you will certainly be able to get bottles in some capacity. According to their latest Instagram post; "tickets at noon allow you to roam freely until the Release at 3pm". So, if you can go and grab a ticket at or around noon, you should be safe to get an allotment. 6 bottles PP of each I believe is the number they settled on.

    I've only been once for The Hive party last month. So, I can't speak to how busy it'll be.

    Each time I've been to the new place it was super chill and relaxed, they also have much more beer than at the old farmers market.

    Always very chill. They seem to be trying to get people to come out for this release, but I can't imagine it'll be a shitshow.

    It's a really, really great spot to hang out and drink a couple of super funky beers. Weather this weekend certainly won't hurt.

    Stopped by on Saturday. It was indeed extremely chill, and their beers are tasting amazing nowadays. I remember how excited I was about Plan Bee when Precious first came around... and I think I'm finally back to being that excited about them again.

    it's kind of awesome how the hype train left the station and then the beers got much better. No accounting for taste in this hobby, that's for sure.

    Drank that new cherry beer the other night... firemost

    Anyone know how Empyreal differs from The Pitz?

    EmpyReal - "it is 4lb/gallon [of peach], the most fruited beer we have done to date."

    Pitz - "wild ale with local peach juice, aged on apricot pits."

    Also, sounds like The Pitz is more acetic, while Empyreal is more lactic.
