    Who can't solo a bottle of Hershey's syrup?

    I kinda fell out of love with them when I asked their brewer/owner about a gushing bottle and he basically blamed it on me for taking it out of the fridge and leaving it on the counter for a whole 45 minutes rather than drinking it kitchen-fridge-cold.

    Was that blendy 3 by chance? I forgot about that one. Bottles were either flat or un-fucking-believably overcarbed.

    I got lucky with my b3 bottles somehow. Basically all of 2017, the razzs, etc. were all over carbed. I didn't really mind as much as I didn't lose any due to volcanic eruptions (eh em de cam framboise all over my living room walls), but I heard the same about blendy 3. As mentioned, I'm not the biggest fan of one of their most important employees either.

    Yep, sure was. I can't remember when exactly, but I had a pour of that in their Morganton bar and it was really good, so the bottle was extra disappointing.

    Yeah they didn’t have a big enough tank to blend all the barrels so they guessed on carbing while blending barrels. Thus the wide variance in carb levels. Draft was fantastic if I recall correctly.

    This makes no sense to me. Why not stagger the blending so that levels of carbonation are consistent across bottles. Some extra work? Sure. But do your job and do it right. They bought a farm but can't even get carb right on bottles.

    Breweries getting into the chocolate milk business. I like this diversification.

    It looks like the ones being poured in Boston are quite a bit darker than the chocolate milk in Canton
