    Yesterday after work stopped by Proclamation for a quick tasting and a couple bottles of Plattelander Rood, and then headed down to Grey Sail for the F&B release:

    I wouldn't mind getting a couple of bottles of Plattelander Rood to try. Could offer up Night Shift/Trillium stuff or anything else up here in MA.

    And Beerologist is the man hooking me up with a nice RI box. Drinking the Tendril growler now and it is quite good.[​IMG]

    Hope you enjoy! Sounds like there are plenty of other good things on the horizon for RI beer as well so I may need to send another box your way before too long.

    That's an awesome sampling of what RI has to offer.

    Tilted Barn opening 11/22. Excited to see what they have in store.

    Let me know what you think of the Grey Sail stuff. We have lots more coming out soon too. A christmas beer (bourbon barrel aged fig something or other and a red wine barrel aged brett saison). We just added cherries to a bourbon barrel of our dark star as well. And our third anniversary Imperial India Pale lager is going to be sent out in a few weeks. Hopped with galaxy, simcoe, amarillo, mosaic, and citra. 4 packs, 16oz cans. there are also rumblings of some sort of collab with ProclamationAle.

    And whoever visits Tilted Barn first has to come back and report what they think! Very excited for another fresh face around here.

    Plattelander almost tastes like orange juice, it must have a fai
    I actually have met Josh a few times, but not since he left Mayflower. He used to come up to a cask ale fest in Boston every year called NERAX. When I first met him he was a home brewer, then he went to school and ended up at Mayflower. I guess Westerly is too far for him to make it up for the fest now. Last time he was up for it we ended up going out to a few places and I dropped him and his girl off about 1am at the B&B they were staying at.

    Oh nice! He still makes it to NERAX when he can. We have been exceptionally busy especially this past year. I know we still send firkins up to it. Let me know if you are ever down in this area and we can share some bottles!

    Everything is too far from Westerly.

    But seriously, anything over a 45 minute drive anywhere is just such a hassle. I get all flustered any time I have to drive to Providence.

    What an appropriate conversation to be having in the RI thread.

    been a while. few things going on.

    tons of news coming out of proclamation including purchasing a foudre, which is awesome. the most recent batch of derivative: mosaic was phenomenal. Alpaca Magi bottle release friday. tendril and zzzlumber coming soon.

    beervana tickets on sale. my favorite festival of the year. not to be missed.

    Alpaca release was crazy - sold out in 75 minutes and a pretty ridiculous line at opening. At least for RI. Looking forward to more zzzlumber in the near future. Some zzzlumber went on tap for tastings after the Alpaca sold out and the Derivative kicked. Hoping it gets bottled so I can actually hold on to some of it this time around.
