Guest Monadnock & NES Need your Help!!!

DOUBLES!! Thanks Coastie, I owe you a refill. Delicious.
So last weekend I had some Green State Lager. Excellent. Got it at the Pitt stop in Pittsfield, VT.
I got a fill of Aurora last night, was going to give it a try later this evening.
They were down to only having cans of Mosaic.
Aurora is real good. Place was packed at 5:30 tonight. The line was out the door.
That Aurora is a 5/5 in my opinion. Absolutely 5/5
Seems like each time I go, it's a little more crowded. That's both a good and a concerning thing.
I was there at the same time. Got aurora and both of the state machines.
This. I try to sneak in at 3:55. John usually opens the door for me, but this time there was already a line. Someone got them to open at like 3:30.
I try to get there early, if not I end up holding up everything. They need to get a more efficient system going in there for serving....
Every extra pint of beer takes 15 minutes off your life
RoundUp Weed Killer Found in 19 Out of 20 Leading Beer and Wine Brands in the US
There's no one definitive amount of alcohol that everyone can safely consume on a regular basis and be "fine." Women are recommended to have no more than one drink a day, men two a day. In France, for both sexes, it's three a day. Spanish Basque country? Seven a day.
How much alcohol is too much?
Are You Drinking Too Much? The Myth Of Moderation
The Founding Fathers drank and many lived into their 70s, 80s, and 90s. John Adams woke up with a 4oz "gill" of hard cider every morning and drank anything possible, from beer to wine to rum, and lived to be 90. Thomas Jefferson thought that drinking wine would solve America's then dependence on whisky, was America's first real wine expert, and died at 83. Ben Franklin also drank anything that had an ABV and decided to join a revolution as a senior citizen.
The worst thing about articles like that one is they don't even define what a pint is. A pint is 16 American liquid ounces (473mL) or 20 British imperial ounces (568mL). Most American beer, "macrobeer", comes in 11.something ounce cans and bottles. Different places will give you either 12 ounce pours or actual 16 ounce pint pours. Foreign beer comes in 350mL or 500mL bottles or cans. So people write these articles and say one extra pint can take time off your life, yet they just say "no more than five standard glasses of wine or beer" and just define the standard drink as 100 grams of alcohol a week. I'll be sure to notate how many grams of alcohol I consume a night...
Many in CT, Connecticut Valley, Two Roads, Broad Brook, Black Hog, T. Hooker, to name a couple. On a side note, it doesn't look like your glass is beer clean.
We'll need your Thursday evening report (I'm assuming you'll be heading over?). Vortex specifically.
I'm literally out of beer; not sure what if anything I'll get for the weekend.
having sex with married women is going to kill me long before the alcohol does.
Yep. Then I'm dry until Easter. I'll apologize to John & Co. tonight.....
Spyglass Descent. Really malty, cocoa, coffee, roasty.
You'll have to wait for a Vortex review, but I got 2 refills of Aurora and 2 Vortex
Nice! More for me! Lol J/K. Heading up Sat for refills..
I can't decide if I want to go Saturday or just be lazy and get something at a store.
This is a juice bomb. Zero bitterness, tastes like orange juice. Really good. Little bit of sweetness to it. Glad I bought 2 growlers.
I hear ya. Nothing pisses me off more than picking up a few 4-packs and they suck. So, I’ll be heading back to Spyglass.
That's the worst.
my buddy is rolling through a shit tonne of cans right now. I'm pretty content. After Ash Wednesday I'll buy new releases from Spyglass, but they have to sit until Easter. The longest I've had a growler sit was 3 weeks, it was my vacuum sealed 64oz, and it didn't change the taste profile (very much) and was not flat....
I was first in line tonight, a few minutes early and they opened for me. And then there was 20 people at the door, so they unlocked at 3:55. I don't think VJ was happy..... LOL.
Going to need a deli counter ticket system soon.
Feels like they're quickly outgrowing their order fulfillment configuration; either that or they need a better system than "line out the door across the middle of the room."
I don't know if opening more days per week would help. I'm not in NH until after they close on Thursdays, so Fri/Sat are my only options.
I agree. I'd love an online system where I could input:
- 32 oz growler swap
- 1 Vortex
- 1 Vortex
- 1 DDH Mosaic
- 1 Aurora
- Pick up time - 5pm
Walk in w/ticket and empties, walk out with refills.
Yeah that'd be ideal. Want that Vortex; won't be until Saturday, though, if at all.
Its the product of natural carbonation. The left over yeast cells are very high in B Vitamins and very healthy for you. B Vitamins can also help prevent hangovers.
Anyone here use the app called "Pint Pass"? You earn money by visiting breweries and then can use it to pay your tab.
What do you think compared to aurora
