    Limited amount of Focal cans were delivered to some on-premise accounts today. Also, Broken Spoke is tasty and split a Luscious can today which was phenomenal.

    I remember having BS frequently at the old pub. Taste brought me back.

    Not sure if this has been posted, but this was an awesome interview from a few years ago:

    Anyone know how Saturdays have been lately? Chances of getting an allotment mid to late afternoon?

    I haven't heard of any sellouts recently... they normally have allotments set aside for each day... I don't think there's anything big going on in Stowe this weekend and no major HF release so you should be fine... but I guess someone who's been there more recently could guesstimate better

    No idea about Saturday but last Friday at 2pm was completely dead (and this was the week of Clover) so I probably wouldn't worry.

    Saw a comment from someone on facebook the other day saying "they sold out 5 minutes before i got there saturday"... no idea if he meant sold out of one of the beers/everything, but that at least tells you the full allotment might not last all day.

    They've been selling out of Crusher and Heady on Saturdays the last few weeks because of the foliage crowds. They also sold out of Heady on some of the recent days that coincided with big Hill Farmstead releases (Flora P/P and Clover). That being said, the sell outs seem to have occurred later in the day. You don't have to arrive right at open on Saturday. I would go at 1:30, when the early crowd has left.

    They only had Focal left when I was there around 2 on Saturday the 1st, but it was Stowe Oktoberfest and crowds were pretty large. I wouldn't worry about getting there too early on Saturdays from now until the snow flies.

    Beelzebub this week and next instead of Crusher. Similar to the Broken Spoke release. Can't wait.

    My entire car stunk so bad from two packages of this cheese in the cooler. Perhaps the funkiest cheese I have ever smelled.

    Rumor has it Beelzebub is more of a black IPA than a stout. Hey, it's Alchemist right ? Should be a palette wrecker..

    Oh, it's a stout, just a heavily hopped and dry-hopped one. But yes, it's nothing like Luscious.

    This is probably a noob question, but are they still releasing Holy Cow? If so, how often? I've never tried it, but I really want to if it's still being made occasionally.
